Holiday season is closer than we think. And with the holidays, inevitably comes many social gatherings. Your calendar is filling up fast, and the clock is ticking. It’s time to start getting ready. To be more specific, it’s time to start getting your skin ready. You need to consider what your skin care treatment plan is going to be.
The key to “Red Carpet Ready” skin is regular maintenance over time. In the skin care world, we like to be proactive rather than reactive because reparative treatments are often more intense. Fixing problems is more difficult than preventing problems.
The first step of any skin care treatment plan is a consultation. A certified aesthetician will examine your skin and determine the best course of action. Afterward, they’ll develop your skin care treatment plan, which will generally be a six-month window.
Don’t worry if you don’t have six months notice. Skin care treatment plans can be customized to suit any timeframe. Your aesthetician will work with you to get you “Red Carpet Ready” in no time!
In order for your skin care treatment plan to be effective, you have to be committed. Over the timeframe you’ve established with your aesthetician, you’ll have to keep up with regular treatments – generally once a month – and support your treatment plan with an at-home skin care regimen.
The best way to maintain your “post-treatment” skin is to use medical grade skin care products. Skin care products from the drugstore are most often “one size fits all” kinds of products. They don’t contain a high percentage of the active ingredient because the products are marketed to a wide range of consumers. Medical grade skin care products are more effective because each one is designed to treat a specific problem. Since there are many to choose from, you can work with your aesthetician to pick one perfect for your skin.
Other ways to support your skin care treatment plan include:
Getting plenty of rest
And preventing sun damage.
Hydration is definitely at the top of our recommendation list. Proper hydration not only keeps your body healthy, but it keeps your skin hydrated which helps to prevent wrinkles.
If you’re main focus is preventing wrinkles, you can try taking supplements with anti-aging properties, like a PhytoMulti, and of course wearing sunscreen every day.
