Our skin is always exposed to an abundance of dirt, pollution, free radicals, and sunlight. Over time, it starts to lose its glow and look fatigued.
Even though taking care of your skin is an everyday task that requires consistency, there are many skincare treatments available to soften a deep furrow, remove dead skin, even out acne scars, and lighten fine lines. Most of these treatments are inexpensive and risk-free. Here are a few skincare treatments that suit everyone:
1. Chemical Peels
Chemical exfoliation is essential for healthy, glowing skin. Peels are the best way to reduce wrinkles, age spots, pigmentation, precancerous skin, and scarring. Acids such as glycolic and salicylic are usually left on the skin for a few minutes, depending on their strength and intensity. These help to dissolve dead skin cells and gently get rid of the upper layers of the epidermis.
Some chemical peels are meant to be used weekly, while lower concentrations can be used every day based on the type and strength of the acid.
2. Derma Planning
Another exfoliation treatment that allows deeper penetration of products, including makeup and skincare, is derma planning. Not only does this treatment make the skin look smoother by removing peach fuzz and dead skin, but it also reduces the appearance of scars and spots. Did you know that excess facial hair is the reason why the skin attracts dirt and oils?
The best part about derma planning is that it allows the makeup to glide flawlessly on your skin and ensures that your face is always glowing!
Micro-needling is the process of using an electric or battery-run instrument on the skin in repeated motions. This instrument contains an abundance of sharp, thin needles that penetrate the upper layer of the skin. Don’t worry; it’s not as painful as it sounds!
The logic behind micro-needling is to promote the production of collagen and elasticity. Both of which are naturally found in our skin. During this treatment, calming acids such as hyaluronic or ascorbic acid are applied so that they can penetrate the deeper layers of the skin.
4. Laser Therapy
Laser therapy is one of the most successful treatments used to noticeably lighten fine lines and wrinkles and promote better skin tone, texture, and elasticity. The laser targets cells in the skin that help heal birthmarks, pigmentation, and spider veins.
Moreover, laser therapy also gets rid of acne marks and scars. There are different types of laser therapies that you can opt for depending on your skin concern.
It must be remembered that one session of any skincare treatment may not make much of a difference to your skin. All treatments require consistency and patience, just like everything good in life.
While some treatments can be performed at home, it is best to get the hang of them by getting them done by a professional first. When it comes to our skin, we can never be too careful, right?
