Pampering your skin is always important, but it is extra important during the winter when the air is cold and dry. An important part of pampering your skin is choosing the right skin care products, but all the options out there can be overwhelming. Here are a few tips to help you find the best products for your skin.

Make Moisture and Sun Protection A Priority

Two of the most important parts of taking care of your skin include keeping it from drying out and preventing sun damage. When looking for skin care products, choose things that will provide moisture and UV protection in addition to other benefits.

Coconut oil, for example, may be a great tool for moisturizing your skin, but it won’t provide you with protection against the sun, so if you’re using something like coconut oil, you also need to add other products to your skin care routine.

Get To Know Your Skin – Schedule a VISIA Consultation

Knowing your skin type and understanding specific issues can help you find the best product for your skin care needs. A VISIA consultation involves using special light to identify a number of skin issues so you know exactly what you’re dealing with, and you can therefore select the best products or procedures to help improve the problems.

VISIA can be used to identify wrinkles, rosacea, enlarged pores, texture issues, sun spots, pigmentation problems, porphyrines, and more. The beauty of VISIA is that it can be repeated once you have started your skin care regimen or after you have received a series of corrective procedures, and it will validate the improvement that you can already see.

Choose Compatible Products

Choosing skin care products that are designed to work together will maximize the impact a product has on your skin. Many of the skin care lines recommended at Dr. Friedlander’s practice are designed to be used together so that they can enhance the effects of your skin care routine.

Ask For A Professional Recommendation

There are a number of skin care lines that Dr. Friedlander’s office recommends including Obagi Skin Care, SkinCeuticals Skin Care, and Revision Skin Care. Scheduling a consultation can help you explore your options and find the perfect product line for your skin.

Be Patient And Consistent

It may take some time for your skin to adjust to new skin care products, so don’t be alarmed if you don’t notice immediate results. In fact, you may notice some negative side effects while your skin adjusts to a new product. Don’t give up though—be patient and consistent so you can give your skin time to get used to the new routine. Follow your doctor’s recommendations and be patient and soon enough you’ll notice that your skin is healthier and younger looking.
