How to Make Your Skin Texture Look & Feel Healthier

Fashions fade and beauty trends boom, but having healthy skin is always something in style. Looking after our skin and achieving a balanced skin texture means that we do not need to use too much makeup, and it can create confidence in our own skin. Wanting healthy skin and having healthy skin are two different things and without a great skincare regime in place, it’s hard to know where to start. Today we are going to look at tried and tested ways to make your skin texture look and feel healthier, so you can make the changes in your beauty steps. Let’s get started!

Levelling treatments

Levelling treatments are a popular way to balance skin complexion and create a softer look and feel to the face and neck. The rise of epidermal levelling in Melbourne treatments has allowed men and women to reverse skin concerns that have developed due to sun damage and lifestyle impacts, as well as clients who have texture concerns due to genetics. Levelling treatments are something to work on with a skin clinician as they can assess the skin and understand what specific areas need attention and the level of skin texture that will be achieved. 

Laser resurfacing

Laser resurfacing is another treatment that men and women seem to improve the texture of their surface skin. Laser resurfacing is the treatment of applying small laces to the face or neck which provide an update that collagen production occurs. This is commonly used where skin damage and pigmentation are present, both of which can contribute to uneven skin texture. Laser resurfacing will typically require multiple sessions before the texture changes and there are visible results, and then clients can maintain the regenerated skin through a targeted skincare routine.

Custom skincare products

We are all guilty of being curious about new beauty trends and popular products, and sometimes that can see us trying skincare products and techniques that are not right for us. Don’t chase the newest thing on the shelf and find the ingredients that are going to aid your unique skin needs. There was a time when oil-free products were all the rage, but for those with dry and combination skin – oil is a very key ingredient that should be incorporated into the routine. Assess your individual needs and then find products that work best for you! If you are not confident in detecting your ideal mix of products, you can work with a skin clinician to understand what your skin requires and how you can get the best texture.

Reduce sun exposure

Sun damage is one of the leading causes of skin damage, and it is all too easy to subject our skin. Regardless of where you live and how often you spend time outside, there should be steps taken to reduce sun exposure. SPF 50+ sunscreen should be the SPF you are aiming for and get in the habit of applying it at the start of every day. Research has shown that even on our commute to work and walking from the car, bus or train to the office – this is all it takes to damage our skin. Choosing the right clothing to shield from sun exposure will also go a long way in reducing sun exposure.

Hydration and sleep

Lifestyle impacts are another cause of poor skin texture, with sleep and hydration at the top of the list. Without enough hydration, your skin will be dry, dull and lacking the moisture to keep your skin looking and feeling fresh. If you consider that our skin is driest in winter, and better hydrated in the warmer months – it all comes down to moisture and hydration. Getting enough sleep will also impact your skin, and reduce the chance of dullness. Achieving optimal hydration and sleep is paramount to setting your skin up for success. It is also worth noting that the optimal sleeping needs are going to vary from one person to another.
