If you have dry skin, oily skin, acne prone skin, or need an anti-aging cream, you need to select a regimen for you! You aren’t doing yourself any favors when selecting the cheapest available on the shelf. There are well-known doctors, including Dr. Sarraga, who you should be listening to on their best recommendation for skincare products.

Many underestimate the importance of a healthy diet and its effects on your skin. By eating carrots, spinach, and other veggies as well as adding omega-3 fatty acids— such as fish or a supplement—to your diet, acne outbreaks can significantly decrease!

  1. Wear sunblock

Even if it is a cloudy day, your skin is still at risk for a sunburn! Make sure to apply a daily SPF or makeup with SPF to protect your skin from premature wrinkling, aging, and other damage.

If taking care of your skin is very important to you and you feel that you’re past a point of prevention, you may want to consider other options that can rewind the clock and work deeper than topical ointments or regimens. Luckily, several treatments exist that can help you get rid of your sun damage, scarring, and wrinkles. Consider some of these popular, successful treatments:

  • CO2 laser resurfacing is used to minimize the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles on the forehead, cheeks, and around your mouth and eyes.
  • Fraxel is a safe, non-ablative laser that stimulates your natural healing process and new creation of collagen. It also improves skin texture, removes pigmentation, and helps get rid of wrinkles around your eyes and mouth.
  • Peels- from the Vampire Peel to a Chemical peel, you have several options in peels that can help target your specific areas of concern. This can include improving skin tone, increasing elasticity, and rejuvenating the overall skin appearance.
