The 5 Rules of a GREAT Skin Care Routine

5 Skin Care Rules

As a nurse practitioner specializing in the aesthetic medicine, I often get asked about skin health and what makes a good skin care routine.

Why is Skin Care Routine Important?
As we age, our skin loses elasticity and collagen and gravity starts to pull everything down. Many of us suffer also from discoloration, hyperpigmentation, due to hormonal changes or over exposure to sun. And the fact is, it only gets worse if you do nothing about it. Prevention is the key! Here is a list of 5 rules that can make a huge impact :

Rule One: 
Do not go anywhere without a good moisturizer, Vitamin C serum and sunscreen (we will discuss the benefits in a future blog).

Rule Two
Less is more. You do not need tons of products, but you need products that work for your needs and that do what they claim to do (we will discuss some great skin products in next blog).

Rule Three
Most skin care products take 6-8 weeks to see results. Do not give up too quick.

Rule Four
Have you ever heard of “medication vacation”? It is OK to take a break once a while from everything, including your skin care products. It is OK to switch your product once a while to a different brand with similar benefits.

Rule Five
Try to find skin products that fit your needs and do not contain Parabens (methylparabens, propylparabens, butylparabens, and ethylparabens) and fragrance. Those can be irritating to the skin.
