Dermatologist-Approved Skin Care Advice
1. Hydrate Your Skin With Hyaluronic Acid
Dr. Lilly Parllaku recommends hyaluronic acid, or Bryn Mawr Dermatology’s Hydro Peptide Gel, for a bright, youthful glow. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that occurs naturally in the skin and is considered a holy grail for skin hydration. In fact, hyaluronic acid can bind up to 1000 times its weight in water! Hyaluronic acids benefits include:
• Wound Healing
• Improved Skin Elasticity
2. Avoid Stress for Clear Skin
3. Use Vitamin C to Achieve Bright, Even-Toned Skin
Vitamin C is an antioxidant, meaning it defends your skin from free radicals that can harm your skin. With regular use, vitamin C can help heal blemishes, reduce hyperpigmentation, and keep your skin from sagging. To maintain a bright, even-toned, refreshed look, Dr. Lilly Parllaku recommends adding vitamin C to your skincare routine.
4. Limit Alcohol and Caffeine to Prevent Skin Damage
5. Use La Roche Double Moisturizer
6. Heal Acne Breakouts with Laser Genesis
According to Dr. Shannon Del Grande, Laser Genesis can be the perfect solution for a pre-event glow or to treat active acne breakouts. This non-invasive procedure gently heats the skin, helping to produce new skin cells and collagen. After one session, you will notice that your skin looks brighter and more youthful.
7. Moisturize Your Hands
Ready to prevent dry, cracked hands? Dr. Lilly Parllaku recommends keeping a bottle of lotion next to your bed and lathering your hands before bed with thick moisturizer or Aquaphor or Vaseline if you can handle the greasy texture.
8. Combat Oily Skin With Powder Sunscreen
According to the National Foundation for Cancer Research, sunscreen is one of the most important tools in the prevention of skin cancer. Luckily there are many ways to protect your skin from harmful UV radiation. Dr. Shannon Del Grande recommends powder sunscreen for your face and scalp. Made with mineral-based ingredients, it can be used for extra SPF protection or to help with shiny skin.
9. Get Plenty of Sleep
10. Try the Elta Elements “Mom Hack”
Have you heard of Dr. Lilly Parllaku’s Mom Hack? It involves applying each of the Elta elements–sunblock, moisturizer, and makeup–in one step. These products protect your skin from damaging UVA and UVB rays and prevent premature signs of aging! Plus, they layer and combine seamlessly.
11. Drink Lots of Water
