Think younger looking skin is too difficult to attain?
Kathe Malinowski, lead esthetician and marketing manager for Eterna MedSpa & Laser Vein Center, said this three-step skin care regimen can make it more achievable.
First, she recommends investing in a good skin care product line.
Wondering which one is best for you? Seek advice from skin care professionals.
“See an esthetician so she can guide you as to treatments and products,” Malinowski said.
She also recommends a yearly visit to a dermatologist for a mole check.
The third, but most important step, Malinowski said is to stay out of the sun.
“I'm not saying you have to become a hermit and never come out of your house but be sensible,” she said. “Don't bake yourself in the sun with baby oil. If you work in the sun or play sports in the sun make sure you use a good SPF of at least 30.”
And when it comes to the sunscreen, “reapply, reapply, reapply,” Malinowski said.
“SPF is not a one and go. When you are out in the sun you need to reapply every couple of hours,” she said. “And keep in mind when an SPF says it’s waterproof it is not. Nothing is waterproof.”
Feel like you aren’t yet at the age where you need to worry about your skin?
Not so, Malinowski said.
“You are never too young to start a good skin care regimen,” she said. “Starting young will get you into a good habit of taking care of your skin.”
