We all dream of perfectly looking glowing skin.
There are many reasons why your skin could be lacking lustre.
- Congestion from environmental aggressors
- Sun damage
Skincare concerns can weigh you down and put on damper on your self-esteem. At a certain point, you may feel uncomfortable in your own skin, but you don’t have to feel this way! This is because, at Dermasurge, our founder, Dr Hiba Injibar, has over 20 years of experience in dermatology treating many different skin types and conditions.
Dr Hiba knows skin and offers the best laser treatments London has to offer. She believes that achieving a healthy, youthful complexion doesn’t have to be complicated.
Here are her top tips for achieving glowing skin. Learn to feel confident in your own authentic “naked face”!
1. Exfoliate to a more youthful glowing skin
Dr Hiba recommends Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) for gentle chemical exfoliation. AHAs like Glycolic Acid in a low concentration will remove dead skin cells, which can cause a dull complexion. For a deeper exfoliation, Chemical Peels can help remove damaged layers of skin to reveal glowing skin underneath. Physical Exfoliants (like scrubs) can be quite irritating to the skin, causing further inflammation. Dr Hiba recommends avoiding physical exfoliants as most people use them harshly on the skin.
2. Take Advantage of Powerful Products
Dr Hiba believes in utilising powerful prescription-strength products to achieve glowing, youthful skin. So, for a noticeable reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, she prescribes Retinol, a Vitamin A derivative which exfoliates the skin and stimulates collagen production. These Vitamin C topicals are ideal for protecting the skin from free-radicals and boosting collagen. Their molecule plays an important role in collagen synthesis, making it vital for skin health.
It is important that you check with your dermatologist before using such products. For example, at Dermasurge Clinic, Dr Hiba will first need to conduct a full examination of your skin before determining your suitability for such products.
3. Protect your skin from the sun and glowing skin will be your reward
We say it all the time, and we’ll say it again: Sun Protection is absolutely necessary for healthy, glowing skin! Sun damage is the number one cause of ageing and wrinkles, so for prevention, a broad spectrum SPF should be used daily. Dr Hiba recommends using at least 30 SPF every day.
4. Cleanse the Skin Properly
Removing your makeup and sunscreen in the evening is very important to make sure your skin is fully clean. You can do this by using a cleanser that will remove your products fully, then follow it with a moisturiser and any topical products as prescribed by your Dermatologist. Finally, don’t forget to also wash your makeup brushes regularly to reduce the spread of bacteria!
5. Stay Hydrated and Get Your Vitamins
Your skin is the largest organ in the body, so it only makes sense that the state of your health can be apparent through it. For radiant skin, stay hydrated, and eat a balanced diet full of vitamins C, E, D, and Omega-3 Fatty Acids!
6. Utilise the Restorative Power of Treatments offered at Dermasurge
