Skin care is one of the most important things to do to keep the skin healthy and looking youthful. This daily routine, which should begin as early as adolescence, not only helps with the skin’s complexion, but it also protects from skin cancer and other skin diseases.
Just like our fingerprints, we each have a unique skin type that requires certain products and treatments to maintain a healthy appearance. The five basic skin types include normal, dry, oily, combination and sensitive. No matter what skin type you have, an at-home skin care routine should include cleansing, exfoliating, moisturizing and protecting. While most people find their at-home regimen to be very beneficial, others may need a physician’s treatment to achieve a better appearance. These treatments may include chemical peels
, microdermabrasion, lasers and/or injectables. Depending on your skin, age and lifestyle, a board certified dermatologist can examine your skin to determine which type of skin care routine is best for you. It’s never too late to start a skin care routine or improve your current routine!
