Healthy Skin Care Habits for the New Year

For most of our Santa Barbara medical and day spa clients, skin care is an on-going “work in progress”. In essence, many people don’t wake up day after day with healthy-looking skin from doing nothing. Instead they “work” for it with regularly scheduled day and medical spa treatments and maintain their results by following a recommended skin care regimen at home. Not surprisingly, there is more to achieving healthy skin than facials and medical-grade products. Developing some of these healthy skin care “habits” will also help boost your glow!

Hands Off
Hands and nails can contaminate your skin. Commit to touching your face as seldom as possible throughout the day.

Eat from the Earth
Colorful vegetables and fruits are packed with vitamins and antioxidants that can repair, enhance, and nourish your skin from the inside out. Greasy or fatty foods tend to upset the natural balance of your body and can cause your skin – and overall health – to deteriorate.

Get Your Rest
“Beauty sleep” is a pretty accurate phrase. While you sleep, your metabolic rate lowers so you are not producing as many skin damaging free radicals. Your skin also focuses on repair (instead of protection as it does during the day) when you are asleep.

Exfoliate
Aim to exfoliate your skin 2 to 3 times per week. This will encourage cell turnover (which decreases every day that we get older!) and will automatically brighten your complexion.

Use Sun Protection Year Round
Whether rain, clouds, or sunshine is in the forecast, get in the habit of applying (and re-applying after prolonged sun exposure, excess perspiration, or exercising) sun screen to your face, neck, chest, and hands.

Invest in Your Skin Care Routine
If there is one skin cleansing tool to invest in, it is the Clarisonic facial cleansing brush. The Clarisonic is Dr. Perkins’ #1 recommendation for your home care regimen and one of the best ways to maintain or achieve healthy skin. We carry the Clarisonic SMART Profile and the Clarisonic Mia 2.
