The skin on your face takes a daily beating in the form of damage from the sun, environmental pollutants, dirt, grime, and more. Because of these things, it’s also more susceptible to premature aging, wrinkling, and spotting – and it’s one of the first places you (and others) can notice the effects of time.
Turn back the clock with a skin analysis at the K Spa Medical Skin Spa. As part of the K Spa experience at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, our medical aesthetician will view your skin under light and magnification to determine your skin type, as well as which skin conditions may be present, in order to craft a treatment protocol specific to you.
As part of your initial consultation, our team will also sit down with you to discuss your background and medical history to get a more complete picture of your dermatologic history. We offer specialized care for conditions such as psoriasis and eczema, acne, wrinkles, precancerous legions and more, and provide you with simple, actionable steps you can take to keep your skin looking its best.
You can also take these steps to protect your skin at home:
- Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. It’s one of the easiest ways to protect your skin and keep it looking young. Drinking enough water is especially important during these colder months, when skin is more susceptible to dryness.
- Exercise. The benefits of exercise go beyond your body. Exercise increases the flow of oxygen to your blood cells, which translates into a healthy glow for your skin. It also helps keep cortisol levels in your body at a healthy range. Cortisol is the stress hormone that’s responsible for breakouts and collagen breakdown in the skin.
- Stop sleeping in your makeup. It can be tough after a long, busy day to muster up the energy to take your makeup off before going to bed. But when you skip this step, you’re locking in makeup, oil, and dirt inside your pores. This causes bacteria to build up in your skin, enlarging your pores and causing unsightly breakouts. Your skin also renews itself at night, and sleeping in your makeup interferes with your skin’s ability to turnover new, healthy cells.
- Adopt a skin-friendly diet. Healthy skin starts on the inside, and it’s greatly affected by the food you eat. Eating a well-balanced, antioxidant-rich diet helps to fight the signs of aging and gives your skin the tools it needs to combat free radical damage, UV radiation, and daily pollutants.
