10 Best At-Home Skin Care Tips To Keep Your Skin Healthy and Moisturized This Winter Season

At home skincare Las Vegas

Spending more time at home viewing ourselves on our screens and scrolling through social media, it’s easy to become self-conscious about our skin. You probably already know the basics to good skin care— drink plenty of water, get enough sleep, and wash your face. While doing these does promote good skin care, is there anything else you can do?

There is no magical formula, procedure, expensive creams that can achieve flawless skin on its own. Great skin also starts with practicing the right habits. Below, we’ve listed some tips to keep your skin looking great before or after a cosmetic procedure of the face or skin.

1. Exfoliate Your Face

Oatmeal makes a great exfoliant or mask. Mix two tablespoons of oats with a tablespoon of honey and a dash of water. Warm up the mixture and then rub it into your skin. While you can use it only to exfoliate, you can also leave it in place for 15 to 20 minutes as a soothing and hydrating mask.

2. Whip Up an Olive Oil Cleanser

A great natural oil to use as both a natural cleanser and moisturizer is olive oil. Rub the oil into your skin, drape a warm, damp cloth over your face until it cools, and then wipe away the excess oil.

3. Moisturize Both Day and Night

The best times to apply moisturizers are in the morning, before bed, or after showering, cleansing, or swimming.

4. Hydrate Inside and Out

Dermatologists agree on the importance of hydration. Allowing oneself to become dehydrated leads to the skin losing radiance and looking dull. Look for cleansing, moisturizing, and anti-aging products that have hydrating formulas. And, of course, drink around eight glasses of water a day.

5. Avoid Direct Heat Exposure

It’s not enough to simply watch out for the sun— getting too close to heaters and fireplaces can also wreak havoc on your skin, causing inflammation and collagen breakdown. Try to stay at least ten feet away from these sources of heat.

6. Vitamins Should Go on Your Skin, Too

While a balanced diet is essential, keep in mind that there is more than one way to get skin vitamins to your skin. Topical antioxidants like vitamin C serum found in serums and creams contain ingredients that nourish the skin.

7. Get Your Greens

While many of us simply want to grab a coffee the moment we wake up in the morning, choosing the right beverages can be a game-changer. Drinking a shot of chlorophyll every morning will brighten, oxygenate, and hydrate your skin.

As an alternative to this drink, chlorophyll supplements can be found at many drugstores and health food stores. Drinking green juices with lots of veggies in them also helps oxygenate the skin and stimulate lymphatic drainage.

8. Maintain a Healthy Diet

Your skin has a natural barrier to retain moisture. Omega-3 fatty acid, which can be found in walnuts or the flax seeds on your salad, can be used as an instant boost to this barrier, increasing your skin’s ability to retain moisture.

9. Wear Sunscreen 365 Days a Year — Indoors or Out

Many people feel they only need to protect themselves when they are outside on sunny days. However, we also need to protect our skin when driving in the car, flying in an airplane, or even while sitting near a window reading a book. It’s daily UV exposure that contributes to the visible signs of aging. Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or greater, and remember to reapply it every two hours.

10. Sleep Smarter

It’s not just about getting eight hours a night. Your skin will also benefit from regularly using clean silk pillowcases, which help prevent the skin’s creasing.

Stellar Service from Start to Finish

Two months ago I had a lower lifestyle facial lift. I was apprehensive, but it was well worth the effort and expense. Dr. Lanfranchi and his entire staff were kind, caring and very professional, from the first meeting to the follow up appointments.

The procedure is done under a local, not general anesthetic, and it was easy. I healed quickly and am very satisfied with the results.
His fee was very reasonable. Any further facial work I want done, I will be sure to come back here.
