Making Gorgeous Skin Your Goal in 2012
Holiday indulgence is worth a few extra pounds or a couple of sleepless nights, but partying takes a toll on your skin. You could vow to live like a monk, but there are better ways to take care of your skin in the New Year.
Make a resolution you’ll enjoy keeping this year and get radiantly healthy skin!
AlluraDerm MD Med Spa is making it easier than ever to get the gorgeous skin you want with January specials on skin care. During the “New Year…New You!” event throughout January, you’ll get 10% off all services priced between $100 and $1,999; choose a deeper transformation of $2,000 or more and receive 15% off med spa services!
The spa is just the beginning, though. With a few minor changes to your skin care routine, you can preserve your luminous skin well beyond the new year.
Always Wear Sunscreen
You’ve heard it from your dermatologist, your aesthetician and probably your mom: wear sunscreen daily. The American Academy of Dermatology estimates that 80 percent of what used to be called premature aging is actually sun damage. That damage is cumulative, so the sunburn you got during spring break years ago could mean deeper smile lines today.
If you could buy a bottle of something that guaranteed you’d look younger a decade from now than you would otherwise, you’d fight to get it. That’s exactly what you’re getting when you wear sunscreen every day. Listen to your dermatologist and your mom; they’re right on this one.
Want to know the easiest way to guarantee good nutrition? Eat a rainbow every day. Fruits and vegetables contain important micronutrients and phytochemicals that help your skin repair itself. Those compounds also give foods their vivid colors. Think of it as nature’s form of nutrition labeling. Tomatoes, oranges, blueberries and broccoli don’t just look appealingly bright on your plate, they brighten your skin as well.
Aim for at least one serving of fruits or vegetables from each of the colors of the rainbow to look and feel vibrantly healthy.
Use Skin Care Products That Work
All the good habits in the world won’t preserve skin if you dry it with harsh detergents and neglect its moisture needs. Follow your new routine with skin care products that take an active role in improving texture and tone. Choose a moisturizer such as SkinMedica’s® Hydrating Complex that helps protect your skin’s elastin as it replenishes surface moisture. Lightweight formulations like SkinCeuticals®’ Hydrating B5 Gel fortify your skin’s ability to repair itself without leaving oily residue.
When you give yourself a new you in the new year, begin the metamorphosis with gorgeous skin. AlluraDerm MD Med Spa can get you started.
