We know that one of the ways our patients feel most beautiful is by taking great care of their skin and achieving a clear, youthful complexion.

A great place to start with your beauty routine is by adopting proper skin care habits, and sticking to them. Read below to learn how you might want to approach skin care, and visit Carolinas Center for Plastic Surgery with any questions or concerns.

Amp Up Your Skincare Routine with These Simple Tips

Identify Your Skin Type
First things first, what kind of skin are you caring for? Your skin may be dry, oily, a combination of both, or a little sensitive. You probably have a good idea of which type of skin you have, but if you don’t, visit a local beauty counter so they can help you determine which category you fall under.

 

Use the Right Product

  • For dry skin, choose alcohol and fragrance-free soaps or face washes.
  • If you have an oily complexion, use an oil-free cleanser.
  • Choose a gentle cleanser or soap for sensitive skin.

 

Moisturize

Even if you’re working with oily skin, you still need to find a moisturizer and use it daily. Lightweight and oil-free options are best if you do have an oily complexion. Make it a habit to apply moisturizer right after the shower.

 

Remove Your Makeup

Every day, no exceptions. Sleeping in your makeup may seem like a convenient option sometimes, but it’s always better to spend the extra few minutes to go to bed with a clean face.

 

Wear Sunscreen

Most moisturizers and face makeups have sunscreen in them, but when you’re going to be outside for more than half an hour, you may want to consider applying more. The best way to care for your skin is to protect it.
