Skin Care regimens can quickly get complicated and confusing when using multiple products. Be sure you are not making one of the 5 common mistakes below!
1.) Forgetting about Your Neck
Most people think of the face when you mention anti-aging products, but neglecting your neck is a sure-fire way to show your age before you’re ready. The fragile skin on your neck and décolletage has different needs from the skin of your face, and if not protected and nourished appropriately can lose hydration and look flabby. Try Revision Nectifirm Advanced to cater to the neck’s specific needs with 8 active ingredients working together to strengthen the dermal-epidermal junction.
2.) Not Eating Correctly
In addition to topical creams and serums, the optimum anti-aging skincare regimen includes nourishing the skin from within. Many dermatologists recommend a diet high in Vitmims A, E, and C as well as Fish Oils and other antioxidants. Unfortunately most of us do not eat exactly right 100% of the time. Try Murad Pure Skin Dietary Supplement for a daily multi-vitamin supplement that provides super balanced internal nutrition if your diet isn’t perfect.
3.) Skimping on the Sunscreen
You’ve heard it many times before: no single product can do more to prevent the signs of aging than sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher. The truth is most of us do not apply enough as often as we should. Experts recommend applying about 1 ounce of sunscreen —enough to fill a shot glass— 15 to 30 minutes before heading out. Reapply sunscreen every 2 hours and after sweating or swimming. An ounce of prevention really is worth a pound of cure when it comes to sunscreens. If you are outside – even briefly – use a broad-spectrum, moisturizing sunscreen like EltaMD UV Clear SPF 46.
4.) Ignoring Your Hands
Next to your face, your hands are probably the most visible parts of your body and will show the earliest signs of aging. They’re always in contact with the elements, household chemicals and extreme temperatures causing sun damage, dryness, chapped skin and age spots. Despite this our hands are often left off the list when it comes to anti-aging skin care needs. To soften and protect your hands try use a well balanced moisturizer likeRose Hand Cream by Trilogy. To repair moderate to severe signs of damage try Elta MD So Silky Hand Creme or Epionce Restorative Hand Cream.
5.) Skipping the Roller
It doesn’t matter how many topical preparations you slather on your skin, if you aren’t using a micro-needle roller you aren’t maximizing your skincare dollar or the effects of your favorite products. Skin Roller therapy is performed with a small wheel that gently rolls over the face and painlessly penetrates the skin’s upper surface twice a week. The treatment is simple but incredibly effective: research has shown an increase in the absorption of active ingredients up to 1000%. Roller therapy also stimulates collagen production which improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars. Try the Micro Needle Roller 0.5mm from SkinMedix for the ultimate boost to your skin care regimen.
Do you need some numbing cream for the roller?
SkinMedix reply: The vast majority of people find micro needle rolling painless without using a numbing cream. If you have exceptionally sensitive skin we do carry a lidocaine cream that may be used in conjunction with a roller or stamp.
