The New Year is perfect for a fresh start, including your skin! Whether you’re looking to get rid of some pesky wrinkles or you want to try a new skincare routine, seeing a dermatologist can help you achieve your skincare goals.

Are you still unsure of where to begin?

Here are some dermatology tips to help you get started:

Use Sunscreen

Even if you don’t spend time in the sun, use sunscreen every day to protect your skin. Sunscreen helps to protect the skin from harmful UV rays that can cause damage, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and even skin cancer.

When choosing a sunscreen, select one with an SPF of 30 or higher that provides broad-spectrum protection. Apply sunscreen to all exposed skin, including the face, neck, chest, and hands. If you sweat or swim, reapply every two hours or more.

Consider a Chemical Peel

If you’re looking for a more intensive skincare treatment, you may want to consider a chemical peel. Chemical peels are a type of exfoliation that uses chemicals to remove the top layer of skin. You can use this to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, uneven skin tone, and more.

There are many different chemical peels, so choosing one that’s right for your skin type and sensitivity is essential. For example, if you have sensitive skin, you may want to choose a light chemical peel.

Chemical peels are usually performed by a dermatologist or skincare professional. This procedure involves applying a chemical peel solution to the skin. You may feel a tingling or burning sensation, but this should subside within a few minutes.

Once the solution has been applied to the skin for a period, then removed. After the procedure, you may see some redness and swelling, but this should subside within a few days.

See a Dermatologist

If you want healthy and beautiful skin, consider seeing a dermatologist. Dermatologists are skin care experts who can help you develop a skincare routine for your skin type and needs.

They can also advise on treating specific skin concerns, such as acne, wrinkles, fine lines, and more. Dermatologists can also perform procedures to improve the appearance of the skin, such as chemical peels.
