5 Must-Do’s for Smoother Skin
There are many different ways that you can enjoy smoother, healthier looking skin. Whether you’re interested in medical treatments or simple, daily steps, it’s possible to make your skin smooth and beautiful.
1. Consider ReFirme™ Skin Tightening Treatment
One of the most popular skin smoothing and tightening treatment is ReFirme™. This procedure is non-invasive and allows you to enjoy a smoother and more even skin texture with the help of laser and radio frequency wave application. It is primarily used in helping to remove or reduce the appearance of wrinkles or in firming the skin of the face.
2. Avoid Excessive Sun Exposure and Tanning
UV rays wear down the skin’s natural collagen and elastin levels and, without a sufficient amount of these important proteins, skin quickly begins to wrinkle and become uneven. Tanning may provide temporary aesthetic benefits but, in the long run, it’s a bad idea for those of us that want to enjoy smooth skin.
3. Get Your Vitamins!
Vitamins are important for helping the skin to stay healthy and perform the natural functions that allow it to stay smooth and vibrant. A well-rounded diet will provide most of the vitamins necessary to facilitate these processes but studies have shown that vitamins C, A and E can also assist in the creation of healthy skin.
4. Creams, Peels and Exfoliates
Most of us already know the benefits possible with the regular use of moisturizers, creams, chemical peels and exfoliant products but it never hurts to emphasize them! Non-oily creams with alpha or beta hydroxyl (and at least a 30 SPF level) work well as daily steps. Anti-aging creams and exfoliates with these properties are also a good idea. Chemical peels are also effective but vary in quality; speak to a cosmetic doctor to choose the right one for your skin goals.
5. Stay Hydrated
The sun can dry out your skin but a lack of hydration is also able to cause a similar effect. Give your body what it needs to flush toxins and keep skin cells healthy by drinking plenty of water. Keeping well hydrated allows for the shedding and regrowth of new skin cells that function properly to create healthy, smooth skin.
