Whether your skin is looking dull and lifeless or you are interested in removing scars and spots, skin rejuvenation may be just what you’re looking for. Many women may mistake skin rejuvenation to be just like any other beauty treatment but, it is instead, less about getting an expensive facial and more about treating the skin at its deepest level.
Before looking for a skin refreshing session for either a simple glow or removing scars and spots, it is important to address the root cause of any problem. Your dermatologist will explain that as we age, our skin loosens and loses its original elasticity because collagen and tissue degenerates. Skin rejuvenation treatments are aimed at stimulating these elastic tissues, but in accordance with your own skin type, so there is no resulting damage.
Your dermatologist will also discuss secondary factors that relate to rejuvenation of your skin, such as the number of hours you sleep each night, your nutrition, the amount of water you drink each day, whether you use tanning products or sit in the sun for hours. The dermatologist will even be interested in how much stress you are under on a daily basis. Only through an over-all approach can either you or the dermatologist address the underlying conditions which have affected your skin to this point. Unless these conditions are changed, your skin will continue to develop along the same path.
Skin rejuvenation techniques and treatments do not have to be done to specifically at the dermatologist’s office, but can also be done at home. Several skin care products are designed to remove the dead cells to help your skin look brighter and softer. This cleaning, exfoliation and moisturizing should be done on a consistent basis in order to achieve the best results.
Before choosing any skincare products, it is important to know your exact skin type. For instance, is it dry, oily, combination or normal. You may need to consult with your dermatologist to determine your skin type or you may be able to speak to a cosmetician who is well-versed in make- up application and skin types.
After determining your skin type it is time to purchase a skin cleanser developed specifically for you. Clean your face with lukewarm water to wash off the excess dirt and unclogged reports from the daily environmental toxins you encounter. The next step is to use a skin toner in order to remove the rest of the dirt and grime and prepare your skin for exfoliation.
Exfoliation is the best way to carry out process of removing dead cells and replacing them effectively with new cells. This process should only be done after cleansing in order to remove the dirt. Follow-up a good exfoliation with a moisturizer specifically designed for your skin type. One that contains aloe Vera gel and natural anti-oxidants extracts is preferable because it feeds the new skin cells topically after your treatment. Both the exfoliation and a moisturizer should be applied when the skin is wet.
One significant preventative measure that individuals, both men and women, can use in order to prevent skin damage is to protect the skin from harmful ultraviolet rays prior to going outside. Sunscreens are available in the form of creams, gels and lotions and will protect the skin whenever you are in daylight. Use a sunscreen on your face and hands every single day in the morning. Even if you work in an office setting, you may be exposed to UV rays by sitting next to a window, driving back and forth to work, and the UV lighting systems in the office buildings.
It’s important to do a skin treatment on a regular basis and use the cleanser that suits your skin. If your skin is oily or normal you can exfoliate three to four times a week. However, if your skin is dry or sensitive it should be done one to two times per week. Be sure to follow a balanced diet, drink lots of water, drink green tea for the antioxidants, get plenty of sleep and work on stress reduction techniques. Using all of these processes you will see results in the rejuvenation of your skin in just a matter of weeks.
