Skincare is the collection of practices which support healthy skin, maintain its smooth appearance, improve its health and relieve common skin ailments. They may consist of proper use of skincare products, prevention of sun exposure, nutrition and the right use of topical emollients. Skincare treatments are categorized into two categories: medicinal skincare and non-medicinal skincare. Skincare treatment includes a holistic approach to health which includes regular physical activity to keep the body young, healthy and well, as well as appropriate use of skincare products, natural products and complementary therapies such as acupuncture and reflexology.
A good skincare regimen will include cleansing, toning and moisturizing. Cleansing removes the impurities from the skin and promotes healthy cellular function. Toning helps to exfoliate, removing dead skin cells and improving the texture of the skin. TIP: For the best results, cleanse, tone and moisturize every day; however, after cleansing, don’t forget to hydrate. An at-home skincare routine should include a moisturizer and sunscreen for the daytime and a night cream to protect from UV damage, environmental pollution and inflammation that may occur in the evening because of sitting under the shower.
To prevent or treat inflammation, a cleanser, toner and lotion are required in addition to a gentle cleanser, toner and anti-inflammatory moisturizer. Preventive skin care skincare products include sunscreen and moisturizers for everyday use, nighttime creams for the times when going out is impractical and a nightcream to revitalize your skin at night after a long, exhausting day. Anti-inflammatory skincare products are used for irritated or damaged skin as well as to treat acne and other inflammatory conditions including rosacea, psoriasis and eczema. Dermatologist Skincare recommendations include a cleanser, toner and moisturizer, but also a natural vitamin E cream, specifically formulated to soothe inflammation and replenish moisture lost through the skin’s daily cleansing routine.
