It makes sense to take care of your skin between your filler treatments, whether you’re a Xeomin or Dysport fan. You want the most optimum filler results, and we want that, too. So, care for your skin, everyday, especially between your filler treatments. Here are a few between time skin care tips to consider:
- Water – drink more of it. This is good advice for your entire body. Water is the ultimate hydrator for your skin.
- This is an especially good idea during the winter months but is beneficial for your skin year-round. Exfoliate at least once a week, preferably twice, using a cream or gel exfoliator and a gentle motion to rid your facial skin of dry, dead skin cells. The perfect time to exfoliate is in the shower while your skin is moist. The gentle, circular motion also helps increase your body’s production of the essential skin protein, collagen.
- Remove your makeup every night. Some nights that’s the last thing you want to do before bed. But leaving your makeup on while you sleep can lead to pimples and even more severe break-outs. These won’t interfere with your filler treatments but break-outs can lead to scarring.
- Moisturize every day. Morning and night, after cleansing your skin and while it is damp, treat it to a rich moisturizing cream or lotion – preferably one with a sunscreen. You may want to get a special cream just for nighttime. There is nothing that can benefit your thirsty, dry skin more than moisturizing it. There are serums and hydrating creams made especially for each skin type, be it dry, normal or oily. Do a bit of research and find the perfect one for your skin type.
