At-Home Ways to Care For Your Skin

Posted on April 9th, 2020 by Margo

With the outbreak of COVID-19, we are temporarily closed to put the safety of our team and our community first. However, now is the perfect time to focus on your skincare routine now that you don’t need to constantly wear makeup. When you visit our cosmetic surgeon in Lisle, Il not only can you access high-quality surgical services, but we offer MedSpa treatments as well! Here are some tips from our team about taking care of your skin while you’re spending time at home. 

Cleanse Twice/Day

Make sure to wash your face twice a day with a gentle, natural cleanser to clean your pores and reduce the bacteria on your skin. Ideally, you should wash your skin in the morning and in the evening. Remember, using a makeup wipe is not the equivalent of washing your face!

Moisturize Daily

Regardless of the type of skin that you have, make sure to use a daily moisturizer. Maintaining a healthy moisture balance in your skin helps prevent dryness and flakiness while keeping skin cells performing at their most optimal levels. 

Drink Plenty of Water

There’s only so much you can do to your skin from the outside. Make sure you are taking care of it from the inside, too! Water is one of the best ways to naturally keep your skin moisturized. Dehydrated skin may result in the development of fine lines, wrinkles, acne and dark spots. 

Wear SPF

Even if you’re spending your days inside, it never hurts to add SPF into your skincare routine. Sunscreen is your skin’s first line of defense in protecting yourself from the sun’s harmful rays. 

Gently Exfoliate

Whether you choose a chemical or a physical exfoliant, doing so can remove dead skin cells from your face. Make sure to look for ingredients like alpha-hydroxy acids that are found naturally in fruit.

Upon our reopening, we look forward to helping you achieve your best skin yet!
