Yes, it’s true that to get the smoothest skin possible, you need to get a variety of treatments done by Dr. Benjamin Dunkley including laser treatments, chemical peels, and maybe even the occasional microdermabrasion. Amidst coming into our office, however, there are things that you should be doing for your skin at home every day. In fact, there are things that you can be doing to your skin while you are sleeping. Don’t believe it? Read on to learn more.
Wash Your Face
If you are the type of person who thinks that using a baby wipe on your face before bed is enough to call it good, you may be sorely mistaken. In fact, one of the best things that you can do for your skin before you go to bed every night is to wash your face. By ridding your face of makeup, dirt, oil, and any other harmful particles, you can reduce the likelihood that you will breakout or even get premature wrinkles.
Use a Night Cream
While you sleep every night, your skin works hard to repair itself. To help aid in this repair process, make sure that you are putting on a thick layer of night cream on the top of your skin every night. When looking for a night cream, however, find one that is designed with your skin type in mind. For instance, if you are oily, look for one that is designed for those with acne-prone skin.
Drinking water throughout the day is one of the best things you can do to maintain a healthy lifestyle. And because you won’t be drinking water while you sleep, consider drinking a big glass of water right before bed. As long as you are hydrated, your skin will be as well— which means fewer wrinkles for you.
It’s safe to say that with a combination of these at-home tips and professional treatments from Dr. Benjamin Dunkley, your skin should look as good as new. If you would like to learn more about our skincare treatments, contact our office today to schedule an appointment!
