Skincare Habits to Adopt in 2019 for a Glowing Appearance

For many men and women, having beautiful, glowing skin can be the ultimate goal for a better, younger-looking appearance. Rather than waste time and money on over-the-counter products that may not work, these skincare habits are sure to help transform your appearance this year.

Start Fresh with Facial Rejuvenation

What better way to kick off 2019 than with fresh, rejuvenated skin? While at-home exfoliants may be enough to keep dead skin cells, investing in a professional facial rejuvenation can reset your skin for the better.

Options like chemical peel, microdermabrasion, and laser rejuvenation are specifically designed to remove dead skin cells while diminishing to appearances of flaws like wrinkles and scarring. By revealing new skin beneath, you can start the new year with a healthy, glowing look. At Aesthetic Art, plasma rich platelet facials are among the most popular and effective ways for patients to improve the look, feel and health of their skin.

Make Exfoliation an Essential to Your Skincare Routine

After you’ve come in for a professional skincare treatment, make your results last between sessions by adding exfoliation to your daily routine. At-home treatment with a high-quality exfoliant can help remove stubborn impurities as well as dead skin cells from the skin’s surface. This, in turn, helps reduce the risk of pores becoming clogged while leaving your face bright and glowing. To avoid over-exfoliation and drying out your skin, we recommend keeping this habit to once or twice a week. If you do it every day, you may end up drying out your skin or damaging healthy skin cells.

Moisturization is Your Friend!

Glowing skin is well-hydrated skin. When skin gets too dry, it overproduces sebum, an oil which can trap dirt and bacteria in pores and ultimately lead to breakouts. Invest in a high-quality moisturizer (bonus points if it contains SPF and is non-comedogenic) to keep skin well-hydrated and oil production balanced. Your skin will thank you now and in the future!

Eat Intelligently

Your skin’s health starts from the inside out. Just as a balanced diet of fruit, veggies, and protein can help keep skin clear and glowing, too much salt or processed food can have an adverse effect on your body and skin’s appearance. If you’re looking to achieve clearer, glowing skin this year, start by evaluating your dietary choice to ensure they include plenty of healthy and delicious foods and drink plenty of water throughout the day.

Get into a Healthy Exercise and Sleep Routine

Your diet isn’t the only habit to impact your skin’s appearance. Consistently getting enough sleep and exercising regularly can also help you achieve beautifully radiant skin. We recommend aiming for at least eight hours of sleep each night as well as completing some form of light exercise daily to help keep your spirits and skin at their best.

Establish a Skin Care Routine

We’ve talked about exfoliation a lot, but that isn’t the only factor patients should be including in their day-to-day skincare routine. Furthermore, it’s important to note that good skincare habits are not a one-size fits-all. It can take the time to find the right skin cleansers, toners, and moisturizers that work in harmony with your skin and create the beautiful appearance you’re looking for. To start off on the right foot, meet with an experienced dermatologist can ensure you get the right products and routine for your skin type and lifestyle.
