Regular Skincare To Reduce The Visits To Your Dermatologist
Most of us dread our visits to the dermatologist or to our local skincare specialist. Firstly we are afraid of their diagnosis that what they may tell us about our skincare problem and secondly, people are afraid of the huge bills that we receive from our dermatologist. However what we do not realize is the fact our skincare specialist or our dermatologist is billing us only based on the problems that they treat and they do not invent skincare problems in us but just identify them and treat them. If you have been good at taking care of your skin you could have avoided many of the trips that you make to your dermatologist.
It has bee reported that majority of the cases that come to the skincare specialists could have easily been avoided if only the patients spent some time on the basic skincare. Unfortunately not many people know what is basic skincare. They think that skincare is only for the beauticians. In most cases the best people do to take care of their skin is to take regular showers. Do you think that it is enough to stop with regular showers? Certainly not! Whether you spend your time indoors or outdoors, your skin is exposed to a lot of stress on daily basis. You need to make sure that your skincare issues are regularly attended to without any delay. Never postpone your skincare need to the next day.
If you look at it closely it will take a maximum of fifteen to twenty minutes for daily skincare. Basic skincare starts from the application of good moisturizers from reliable brands like Jan Marini, SkinMedica, SkinCeuticals, Obagi, etc. As soon as you are out of the shower your skin should get its protective quote of moisturizer which will help it to retain the water content in your body.
If you are planning to go out and if you anticipate that your skin is going to be exposed to a lot of sun, then you need to make sure to apply good sunscreen lotion again from good brands like Obagi or SkinCeuticals.
When you are back home after having exposed your skin to dirt, dust, oil etc., you need to clean your skin with appropriate cleansers. Your skin cleanser is not the regular soap you use. Your regular soap will remove the dirt only superficially but deep cleaning action is required to clean the skin of all the impurities and to clean the clogged pores and for this you will need a good cleanser. If you have the habit of using any makeup, your makeup should also be removed before you go to bed. Your skin cleanser will do the job for you.
All these basic care will help you keep your skin healthy and smooth. When your skin is healthy, then you will never have to visit your skincare specialist. Just remember to choose the right skincare products based on your skin type.
