5 Steps to Flawless Skin
Want a gorgeous complexion? Right this way!
Dr. Tahsini from the leading Beauty Medical Spa in Torrance, California, Skin Works Medical Spa, shares four tips on how to get flawless skin – quickly, easily and affordably. Here we show you how to follow his five-step program, which he claims will dramatically improve every woman’s skin, and shares an extra tip that addresses all your skincare needs.
It’s as easy as one, two, three, four, five.
Step 1: Cleanse the skin
Cleansers are at the foundation of all good skin care regimens. They range from very moisturizing to very drying and should be chosen to match your skin type. If your skin feels like Sahara desert, you’ve chosen a wrong moisturizer.
Any cleanser that acts through a process of emulsification will do the trick. Emulsification is the term used when the product contains a chemical that is able to grab oils off your skin by virtue of combining them with water, enabling it to bind and therefore remove oil, dirt trapped in the oil and other debris.
Step 2: Prepare the skin with a toner
What’s standing between you and unclogged pores? It could be the absence of just one product in your beauty routine. Use a toner to remove any additional residual oil, dirt or cleanser from the skin’s surface. Using a gentler cleanser in a combination with a toner optimizes the efficacy of products and reduces the possibility of irritation.
“Toners are helpful and necessary for people with oily or acne-prone skin, or for people who want extra cleansing after wearing makeup or other heavy skin products such as sunscreen,” says Dr. Tahsini, from Skin Works Medical Spa, Torrance.
Dr. Tahsini outlines additional benefits of using a toner in your skincare routine:
- It shrinks pores
- It restores your skin’s pH balance
- It refreshes skin
Step 3: Use an active ingredient
The outer layer of the skin consists of dead cells that are constantly being sloughed off and replaced. The sloughing process, when it works properly, reduces and helps eliminate discolorations and textural issues, resulting in a complexion that is more radiant, youthful and healthy-looking.
As skin ages, dead-cell sloughing naturally slows down and doesn’t work properly. Exfoliating can be accomplished through the use of products that incorporate granules into a cleanser or cream.
As an alternative, it can be chemically accomplished chemically accomplished through active ingredients such as alpha hydroxy acid (glycolic acid, lactic acid) or beta hydroxy acid (salicylic acid). Skin Works Medical Spa, Torrance, offers first-class Vi Peel treatments in Torrance and surrounding areas.
The Vi Peel is appropriate for moderate skin imperfections. It will improve the following conditions: tone, texture, clarity of skin, Hyperpigmentation (including Melasma), lines and wrinkles, active acne and acne scars. The VI Peel is a terrific way to stimulate the production of Collagen (connective tissue protein). Patients typically notice results after 1 peel; results are better after a series of peels.
Step 4 – Apply sunscreens
The final products you need to complete your skincare routine are a sunscreen and a moisturizer. Sunscreen should play a starring role in your quest for younger-looking skin. Sunlight is the cause of at least 80% of the signs of visible aging, such as freckling, skin thinning, wrinkles and some facial lines, and can contribute to the development of skin cancer. Protect your skin daily using “broad-spectrum” sunscreens that block both UVB and UVA light, advises Dr. Tahsini from Skin Works Medical Spa, Torrance. Reapply every two hours that you’re in the sun, says Dr. Tahisni. Remember, that just because it’s cold outside (or a cloudy day) doesn’t mean you’re exempt from slathering on the SPF—sun damage can still happen.
Apply sunscreen to the parts of your body that age the fastest – face, neck, décolletage and hands.
Step 5 – Moisturize Regularly
Do you moisturize your skin every day? If you don’t, you should. Maintaining the water content of the skin is crucial for healthy skin.
Moisturizing your face will help you look and feel younger, you will have softer, more elastic skin, and it will keep your skin hydrated. All of these things are important if you want to make sure to look as young as you can in the years to come.
If you have sensitive skin, look for products with “ceramides,” one of the three types of lipids or fats in the skin. When the air is dry in the winter, people with flawless skin know to ramp up their moisturizer use on their entire bodies. Then, when the air is more humid in warmer months, they can ease up.
“People with perfect skin are in touch with how dry their skin may be and how important it is to keep skin moist,” says Dr. Tahsini.
Also if you’re reading this, drink water. Hydrating on the inside will result in dewy and fresh looking skin on the outside.
Need an Extra Boost?
Dr. Tahsini from Skin Works Medical Spa, Torrance, California, recommends an extra step for flawless skin.
Microneedling Therapy is the latest breakthrough for finally getting rid of those embarrassing scars, stretch marks, and unsightly wrinkles. Micro-needling (also known as collagen induction therapy) is a minimally invasive procedure using a device with small needles is pushed or rolled over your face and neck area to create controlled punctures, which force your skin into repair mode.
Hundreds of tiny pinpricks going into your skin might sound like a torture, right?
Dr. Tahsini from Skinworks Medical Spa Torrance, assures you that this minimally invasive treatment is virtually painless and incredibly effective.
“The microneedle length is incredibly tiny compared to a traditional needle, and these devices are gentle enough to be used around the delicate eye area. The micro-injuries it creates stimulates the skin’s repair process to naturally create collagen and elastin. This in return, reverses as well as prevents signs of aging, and reduces acne scars and stretch marks.”– says board-certified Medical Director in Aesthetic Medicine, Dr. Tahsini.
