Dermatologist approved tips to help your skin Glow
To help patients get the best results from these products, our dermatologists offer these tips.
1.) Start with one product: Using several anti-aging products at the same time can irritate your skin.
2.) Test the product before applying it to your face or hands: Even hypoallergenic products can cause a skin reaction.
3.) Stop using a product that stings, burns, or tingles: These sensations mean that the product irritates your skin. Irritated skin looks older.
4.) Follow directions: Some products contain active ingredients that can cause problems if you apply more than directed. Read the instructions, and use as directed.
5.) Give the product time to work: A moisturizer can plump up fine lines in a few days, but most products take at least 6 weeks to work. Sometimes it can take up to 3 months. Be patient and give the product time to work.
6.) Continue using, if you want to continue 👀 results: People often stop using a product once they 👀 results.
7.) Protect your skin from the ☀️: ☀️ protection helps to reduce signs of premature aging on your skin. It also allows your skin to repair and renew itself and reduces your risk for getting skin cancer.
8.) To protect your skin from the ☀️, dermatologists recommend the following:- Use moisturizer: Moisturizer traps 💧 in your skin. This extra moisture can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and brighten your complexion.
9.) Forget about tanning: Tanning speeds up signs of aging on your skin. Tanning can lead to premature wrinkles, age spots, and other unwanted signs of aging.
10.) Avoid the temptation to improve results with a do-it-yourself cosmetic procedure: If you shop online, you may 👀 lasers and other products that treat signs of aging for sale. These products are often counterfeit or imported illegally. Using these products can be extremely dangerous to your health.

💛 it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is one of the biggest date nights of the year. With the holiday of 💛 around the corner, it’s time to start prepping for a romantic night out with your beau. In our opinion, the best thing to pair with your date night LBD is flawless-looking skin from head to toe. That’s why we’re sharing helpful tips on how to get your skin in tip-top shape for Valentine’s Day. Some of these steps should be done in advance (start spot-treating those pesky zits early!) while others are to be completed the night of. Without further ado, here’s how to beautify your skin before Valentine’s Day date night.
Before Valentine’s Day :
1. Address Break Outs:
Break Outs aren’t part of your date night reservation, so let us help you kick them to the curb ahead of time. Since acne break outs can’t disappear overnight, it is best to be proactive to help keep them at bay. Start with cleansing your skin with a medicated cleanser formulated with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide morning and night to help remove pore-clogging dirt, impurities, ⚰️ skin cells, and excess oil.
2. Apply a Face Mask:
Take advantage of free time you have before the big night to apply your favorite hydrating, brightening, or purifying mask. Choose one based on your main skin concerns, be it clogged pores or lack of radiance.
3. Pamper Yourself with a Facial:
Brighten, hydrate, and give your complexion a beautiful glow with a professional facial. Removing these ⚰️ skin cells will not only soften your skin but also improve the look and application of make up.
On Valentine’s Day:
1. Cleanse Your Skin
The day has come! After brushing your teeth in the A.M., cleanse your skin as you normally would. 👀 some of our dermatologist recommended cleansers at our skin shop.
2. Hydrate with Moisturizer
Moisturizer comes immediately after cleansing, but you already knew that (right!?). Reach for a formula that can hydrate your skin and provide long-lasting makeup hold. After your 🚿, moisturize the skin on your body with your favorite body butter, cream, or lotion. If you’re wearing a skirt or dress, pay close attention to your legs! Dry, scaly legs will not complement any outfit…trust us.
3. Hide Imperfections
Some break outs may still be visible come date night despite your best attempts to address them ahead of time. Don’t fret! Conceal them in a pinch with concealer. Whether it’s dark circles, imperfections, or age spots, the right concealer can help temporarily camouflage their appearance.
4. Be Bold with Makeup
Makeup is by no means a date night must, but if you want to wear some, why not go full glamour girl? You can’t go wrong with flirty lashes, winged eyeliner, and a smokey eye. Use our special edition Glowmedica Makeup to get that beautiful and professional looking look.
