Healthy, glowing, blemish-free skin doesn’t come easily or naturally to most people. Sometimes it takes a lot of work to create healthy skin, and even if you have healthy skin now, it can take a lot of work to maintain it. If you’ve ever admired another person’s beautiful skin and wished it could only be that easy for you, chances are that person puts a lot of work into creating and maintaining their healthy skin, and you may be able to do the same with a number of skin rejuvenation options.
Skin health is created by a wide combination of factors that include things that are out of your control (genetics, skin type, environmental contaminants), things that are in your control (cleanliness, product choices, environmental protection), and by the following skin health criteria:
- Even color tone
- Tight and firm
If your skin doesn’t fit all the conditions for good skin health, or if you are simply unhappy with the current state of your skin, there are a number of facial treatments you can receive on both cosmetic and therapeutic levels to get you closer to your skin health goals. Creating a skin care regimen that combines daily and professional care will help you create and maintain the skin or your dreams.
Professional Facial Treatments
Professional skin care is important for maintaining healthy skin, and it’s essential for creating healthy skin if your skin health isn’t what it should be. Treatments for particular conditions, such as acne treatment, can be successfully administered by a dermatologist, while maintenance treatments such as facials can be performed at a spa or other body health treatment center. Consider the following professional facial procedures to address certain skin issues:
- Skin resurfacing – this exfoliation treatment is perfect for rejuvenating the cells of all skin types. The layer of dead cells on the skin’s surface is sloughed off, leaving healthy, vibrant, glowing skin with the conditions for the healthy growth of new cells.
- Deep-pore treatment – recommended for maintaining healthy skin and skin prone to acne and blemishes, a deep-pore cleanse opens pores, releases toxins, and promotes healing.
- Chemical peel – recommended for enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, scars, sun damage, and fine lines, a chemical peel strips the skin of dead, dying, and unhealthy cells, promoting the generation of new, healthy cells.
Skin Care at Home
Home skin care doesn’t need to be expensive, complicated, or time-consuming. An easy routine performed twice daily and tailored to your particular skin type works well at maintaining skin health and working toward creating healthy skin.
Start each day with a short facial routine that can be integrated with a morning shower. The routine should include cleansing, toning, and hydration, before you apply any makeup. End the day with the same routine, followed by a hydrating night cream.
There are hundreds of facial products on the market, and they are not all created equally. Instead of spending months or years searching for the perfect products to combine with your skin type, considering visiting a dermatologist for a consultation. The doctor will determine your skin type, address any skin issues you have, and recommend products that will work well at creating health for your individual skin type.
Don’t discount natural remedies and solutions when it comes to creating healthy skin. Sometimes the products you already have lying around the house, such as avocado or witch-hazel, are the most effective ones.
