Everyone wants to have lush skin and a clear complexion. So much so, that we often get questions from our patients about what they can do to not only reap the most benefits out of the procedures they get from us, but how can they maintain the effects for as long as possible in between visits? Let’s dive right in!

Start a Skincare Routine

When it comes to aesthetic beauty and looking your best, there is no single solution that is going to fit for everyone. However, a healthy dose of preventative medicine might just be the closest thing to that. Yes, we have several advanced procedures such as CoolPeel or HydraFacial that offer amazing results with minimal discomfort or down time.

We urge you to get those procedures done if you are suffering from any of the blemishes or skin conditions that they best deal with. Even with treatments like those available, nothing beats a quality daily skincare regimen. We feel so strongly about this that it is the reason that the “plus” in our TR3+ Approach exists. It doesn’t matter if you’re 15, 25, 45, or 65. As they say, the best time to plant a tree was yesterday, the next best is today.

Find a Regimen that Works for You

Like any daily habit, it’s incredibly important to find a routine that works with your lifestyle and works with you, not against you. Some people enjoy handling their duties in the morning, others at night before bed. Washing your face before bed is always a good idea, as not only will it help keep y

If there was one thing we could tell you that would make all the difference it’s this: consistency is more important than finesse. You might see a lot of fancy ways to take care of your skin through influencers and beauty gurus online, but it’s best to stick with something simple and do it every day than to put pressure on yourself to do something elaborate all the time.

Is Your Skin Dry or Oily?

This is the deciding factor for how you will take care of your skin and what products you will use. Those with oily skin are more focused on the cleansing aspect of skin care as they will have to be diligent about removing excess oil from their face which could block their pores and render their skin dull looking.

Those who have dry skin tend to experience more issues with flaking and overall require a gentler cleansing solution that will clean the skin without drying it out further.

Figure Out Which Ingredients Work with Your Skin

The cosmetics and beauty industry is a behemoth. There are millions of products out there and the industry makes a lot of its money off of trial and error from customers. Understanding what things you should avoid in your products can save you a lot of time, money, and irritation (literally and figuratively). If you are unsure of where to start, when you visit us at The Herschthal Practice for one of our many effective and affordable procedures, we are more than happy to guide you on what products might work with your skin type.

The vast majority of the cases of mild dermatitis are irritant contact dermatitis—that is to say, something that your skin has come into contact with is causing the irritation. Beauty products are the number one friend and enemy of your skin. Scented products are notorious for this, as many chemicals involved in creating fragrances can be known irritants.

Some natural substances such as essential oils: tea tree, peppermint, cloves, and cinnamon oil are common irritants. You may not make the connection that these are irritating your skin due to how mild the effect is.
