Limit Sugar Intake
Sugar isn’t only bad for your teeth. Sugar can lead to less-than-ideal skin, which can suffer from damaged collagen and elastin. The inflammation that sugar causes can also show up as acne or dry, itchy skin. Even worse, it can lead to wrinkles over the long term. So many of us may be experiencing skin that’s dull, dry, or inflamed due to months of eating more sugar than normal, plus colder, drier air. Consider testing to see if sugar affects your skin, and cut it out for a few weeks.
When we sleep, the cells in our bodies repair themselves. If you’re not sleeping well, then your body isn’t able to repair and recover. Take some time to look at your sleep habits and make some changes. Make sure your room is clean, inviting, dark, and cool. Leave your phone outside of the room so you aren’t tempted to stay up late checking your work email or stressing over social media. Going to bed earlier will also help you get more quality sleep, so don’t be afraid to hit the hay at 9 PM if you feel you need more sleep.
We offer many different treatments that can be tailored to your skin concerns. Chemical peels and laser treatments can be combined to give you a more radiant, youthful look. Fractional Resurfacing treatments with Profractional Therapy can help with tone issues, scars, or even fine lines and wrinkles.
