A question we’ve often been asked during these uncertain times is what skincare solutions at home are available for a dull, ashy, or tired-looking complexion. Unfortunately, anxiety causes not only emotional stress, but it can also have a negative impact on your skin. You may become more prone to sensitivity and irritation, breakouts, and a lackluster appearance, including:
- Skin dullness
- Visibly tired eyes
- Breakouts and acne
- Dry, itchy skin
- Dehydrated and chapped lips
Luckily, when stress starts to show on your face, we have a solution in a box! These are our favorite products we rely on for keeping our skin as resilient as our minds during these uncertain times. Always remember to follow these simple steps for everyday skincare routine – start with cleansing, then hydrating, then moisturize and protect.
Our Fav Skincare Solutions At-Home
Lytic Gel by Epionce – Let’s start with our patients’ favorite cleanser. It’s a must to effectively dissolve and remove dirt, oil and makeup without irritating or over-drying your skin.
Alastin Renewal Retinol – This Retinol 0.25% and 0.5% is great for acne-prone skin because the retinol not only fights acne while refining skin texture, but also helps with aging – basically working double duty. It has an anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant formula, which makes it gentle and calming to the skin – meaning you can use it every night before sleep.
Lumiere by Neocutis – This award-winning eye cream will visibly minimize under-eye circles and reduce puffiness while boosting collagen for brighter, younger-looking eyes.
Hydrating B5 Gel by Neocutis – Natural humectant hydrating serum will hydrate your skin in less than a minute by replenishing moisture and restoring radiance for smoother healthy-looking complexion.
BodiFirm by Revision – This brand-new formula is the only topical lotion like body sculpting treatment. It helps with crinkly, thin, and sun-damaged skin.
Treatments After Self-Isolation
First things first, what treatment should be scheduled once we’re able to resume aesthetic treatments? All of us deserve a relaxing feel-good and nourishing face treatment experience to diminish signs of stressed skin.
Hydrafacial would be a good one to start with, removing dead skin cells from the epidermal layer, then infusing it with intensive serum booster tailored to your skin need, following with healing LED light therapy in case you have acne, sensitive or aging skin type. There is no downtime and results will be immediate, and your skin will have a hydrated, radiant and fresh-looking appearance.
