As one of the most important ways to care for your body— other than diet, exercise, and brushing your teeth— caring for your skin is not only important to help you have healthier skin but to help with combating things such as acne. No matter what age you are, there’s a skin care solution for everyone.   Teens Oh puberty— you may have kissed braces goodbye and are ready to enter into highschool, but puberty has a huge impact on your skin care. If you are a teenager and haven’t already adopted a skincare routine, now is the time to do so. Get in the habit of washing your face both morning and night with a gentle face cleanser, and use a spot treatment to help deal with any acne issues. If your acne is persistent and won’t let up, consider making an appointment with your dermatologist.   Twenties Unfortunately, as much as we’d like the think that the moment we turn twenty, means the moment we say goodbye to acne, that isn’t quite true. If you are in your twenties and still suffer from breakouts, continue using an acne spot treatment to keep blemishes under control. However, now that you’re out of your teens, now is the time to start investing in things such as night creams and eye creams. These advanced creams will help you care for your skin and prevent the early onset of wrinkles.   Thirties and Forties Your thirties and forties are considered to be some of the best years of your life. You’re out of the awkward teen phase and you made it through the soul-searching years that constitute your twenties. Plus, you’re likely rid of most of your acne! However, thirties and forties mean that you’re unfortunately aging and it’s time to incorporate some anti-aging products into your skin routine such as a serum, face cream, and eye cream. Designed to moisturize your skin and combat wrinkles, these products will help you have a smoother complexion.   Whether you’re a teenager or in your forties, it’s important to take care of your skin.   To learn more about skin care, contact our office today!
