Whether you prefer Botox to Restylane or vice versa, it’s important to take care of your skin in between receiving these fillers and injectables. Not only will taking care of your skin help to accentuate your results, but it will also help to ensure that your skin stays as healthy as possible for as long as possible. With the New Year in full swing, now is the best time to get started on a skin care regimen that will make you look almost as young as your Botox does. Read on to learn more.
Exfoliating your skin with a cream or gel exfoliator is the perfect way to rid your face of any dead skin that may be building up. And during the cold, dry winter months, dead, dry skin can cause your face to feel tired and damaged. However, by using a gentle exfoliating scrub on your face 1-3 times a week, you can help to get a smoother looking complexion. And, as an added bonus, the scrubbing motion on your skin can help to speed up your body’s natural production of collagen— a win win for your skin’s health.
- Wash Off Your Makeup
We’ve all done it— even though none of us want to admit it— but sometimes it can seem like the last thing in the world you want to do: wash your makeup off before you go to bed. By leaving makeup on your skin over night, you can cause breakouts due to the added oil production of your skin. And although breakouts won’t interfere with your Botox or Restylane, they can lead to unwanted scarring and just an overall nuisance.
One of the best ways to prevent wrinkles from occurring is by moisturizing your skin both morning and night. Consider your skin to be the dessert— the longer it goes without moisture, the more cracks that begin to surface. In order to prevent your skin from drying, cracking, and breaking out in some unwanted wrinkles, make sure you are using a hydrating serum or cream for your face type— normal, dry, oily— both morning and night.
