Love The Skin You Are In! -
It’s time to practice self-love and learn to love your skin. Your Gardens Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery Center provider can help you look your best by providing the most recent evaluation and treatments for your skin, hair and nails You can learn to love your natural skin tone and complexion.
Learn to love your skin - stop being critical of your skin tone. All skin tones are beautiful. Forget about tanning. Tanning leads to premature aging, wrinkles and even skin cancer. Protect your skin with sunscreen every day. Your skin is your largest organ, treat it well. Beautiful skin comes in every shade. Embrace the skin color with which you were born.
Go natural - When applying your makeup, don't aim to cover up your skin -- instead, just enhance it. The natural look is "in" right now, whether you have pale skin and freckles or deep mahogany skin. The Natural Look doesn't mean no makeup. Most of us can use a little help now and then to reduce the appearance of blemishes and other small imperfections. Use a sheer foundation or tinted moisturizer that matches the natural tone of your skin. Apply makeup with a light hand -- a little goes a long way. Save the ultra-glam makeup for special occasions, and stick with the natural makeup look for everyday wear.
Treat your skin right - Commit to an annual (or more often if your Gardens Dermatology provider recommends it) skin check. In addition to sunscreen, use cleansers, moisturizers and other skin care products that are suited to your skin type. Gardens Dermatology & Cosmetic surgery Center carries a variety of medical grade products, designed to give you beautiful healthy skin. Never go to sleep with your makeup on. Drink plenty of water. Don't forget about a balanced, healthy diet -- eat foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants.
Get plenty of sleep - Lack of sleep can not only put you in a bad mood, it can also wreak havoc on your skin, causing blemishes, puffy eyes and premature signs of aging. Get at least seven hours of restful sleep a night. Your skin (and the rest of your body) needs the downtime while you are sleeping to rejuvenate.
