We’re welcoming a new year, which means we’ve got tips to help patients become brighter, more radiant versions of themselves! For this New Year, our medical aesthetician at Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery is providing a few skincare resolutions we hope you’ll consider implementing into your regimen. Review some of our top five skincare resolutions, below!
Wear Sunscreen Daily
Whether you live in Arizona full-time, part-time, or not at all (we love our out-of-state readers!), applying sunscreen daily is extremely important. Dermatologists and skincare specialists have advised the public for years to do so, and do so often. Wearing sunscreen prevents premature aging and skin cancer, and luckily, many skincare and makeup products on that market today have SPF built in them. If you’re looking for products that work well with your skin, ask us for recommendations!
Take Off Your Make-up Before Bed
We’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again: it is imperative you take OFF your makeup every night before going to bed! Did you know your skin ages 14 days every time you sleep in makeup? Instead of adding to your skin’s demise, try taking off your makeup as soon as you get home from work when you still have an ounce of energy left in you. Or, at the very least, keep make-up remover wipes on your nightstand next to your bed.
Clean Up After The Gym
Nothing feels better than walking out of the gym feeling strong and (slightly) exhausted from an intense workout, right? Right! Regardless, it’s important to take a minute after your workout to either hit the shower or clean off your body with wipes. Many people are beginning to make the switch from gyms to studios for workouts, and as a result, are not showering after said workout. If this is the case for you, pack Stridex pads or baby wipes to clean all the gunk and hard sweat off of your face, arms, chest and back after your workout!
Moisturizer After Getting Out Of The Shower
You may not know this, but one of the best times to moisturize is right after you get out of the shower! The water vapor mixed with your lotion creates a creamy, hydrating mask for your body. If you find this task tedious, try keeping your body lotion right next to the shower. If you get cold right after getting out of the shower and don’t want to apply lotion, crank up your thermostat just while in the shower so you can step out into the warm air and apply, apply, apply!
Invest In A Skincare Program
It’s time to get with the program, people! Quit buying products that may or may not work for your skin. Instead of getting frustrated, confused or just annoyed because you don’t know what’s right for you skin type, visit us at Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery! And, for a limited time, Dr. Ali and Dr. Tamir Mosharrafa have a special that not only benefits you, but the community as well!
