3 Essential Steps to Achieve Beautiful Results With Your Skin

3 Essential Steps to Achieve Beautiful Results With Your Skin

Every day we see people who come to see us seeking advice on how to achieve the best results for their skin. Whether you are you looking to prevent problems from appearing in the future or you have an existing problem that needs resolving, there are certain steps you need to take to achieve good long-term results for your skin.

1 . Keep Your Skin Hydrated

The most important thing you can do for a healthy, resilient, and youthful skin is to keep it hydrated. A well-hydrated skin functions better to protect the body from the elements outside and always appears healthier. If you want to improve conditions in your skin such as pigmentation, acne, sun damage, clogging, congestion, blackheads, and many other conditions, your skin needs to be well hydrated. Well-hydrated skin can withstand stronger treatments and more intensive skin care products so that you can achieve more dramatic results faster.

So, your first step in achieving beautiful results with your skin is to get your daily skin care right. Establish a good cleansing, toning and moisturising routine morning and night that will hydrate and protect your skin.

2. Exfoliate Your Skin Regularly

Depending on your skin type, once or twice a week you need to exfoliate your skin to remove dead cell build-up which could potentially cause problems. Dead skin cells build up can cause clogging of the pores which can lead to blackheads and acne. Dead cell build up can make the wrinkles look deeper, the pores look more pronounced, and the pigmentation appear darker so exfoliating your skin regularly will keep your skin looking clearer, fresher, brighter, smoother and more youthful.

3. Protect Your Skin from the Sun

We all know how important it is to protect the skin from the sun with a good sunscreen every single day of the year to prevent skin cancer. However, the sun can also dramatically change the appearance of our skin. The sun can cause the skin to become more oily and can make the pores more pronounced. It can cause the skin to thicken and toughen up (think farmer’s skin) and make the wrinkles look deeper. UV damage will cause uneven skin tone, and pigmentation to become darker. UV rays can also damage the surface capillaries causing redness, sensitive skin, and rosacea.

As soon as there is daylight, your skin is exposed to UV damage. When are you going out for a walk to the post box, going shopping, or taking the bus to work, every single minute that you spend in daylight, can accumulate in hours of UV damage to your skin every week. So keep your sunscreen with your daily moisturiser and get in the habit of applying it as soon as you've moisturised your skin. This daily habit will keep your skin looking healthier, clearer, brighter and more youthful for longer.

These 3 essential steps are important for good skin health for now and into the future. Get these basic essentials right before you invest time and money into a corrective skin care treatments and procedures. Getting your essential basics right will ensure that you will get better results in treating your skin into the future. If however, you're finding that the skincare you are using is causing problems or not delivering results, it's time to reassess your skin care. We can help you determine the best products that suit your skin so that you can achieve beautiful results.
