Got oily, dull-looking, or aging skin? While none of these is reason to celebrate, you’re still luckier than your parents, not to mention your grandparents. Recent advancements in medicine, technology, and cosmetology allow you to treat, alleviate, or reduce the appearance of all these conditions.
With new discoveries being made every day, it’s more important than ever to keep up to date with recent skincare trends. But don’t worry; we’ve got you covered. Read on and find out what procedures, treatments, and products are people currently raving about.
Yes, mineral water is great for you when you drink and it can also do wonders when you apply it on your skin. Mineral water contains silica (the fancy for good, old-fashioned sand you find on beaches), which keeps your elastin and collagen fibers strong, copper, nature’s most potent anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, and even anti-bacterial agent, and hydrogen peroxide, which is great for regulating your skin’s oxygen levels.
With this combination, you can literally never go wrong. It suits every type of skin, so next time you shop for a new moisturizer, make sure it contains mineral water.
Don’t worry; despite the name, this is not a painful procedure, especially if it’s done with a high-end device, such as the Dermaroller. During a micro-needling treatment, your cosmetologist is using a hand-held device endowed with hundreds of extremely fine needles. Their effect is an excellent penetration of the active substances in your skin.
Micro-needling is ideal for removing acne scars and for skin rejuvenation, as well as for other skin conditions. In fact, your cosmetologist can use a different substance to treat a different condition. The needles will help that substance to reach the lower levels of your skin and thus have a better and faster effect.
Laser is not just an excellent way to permanently remove unwanted hair; it is also great for skin rejuvenation and resurfacing. This technology is ideal for removing sun spots and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Laser treatment works on every type of skin and requires little to no downtime. Better yet, it is much more affordable that cosmetic surgery and has similar effects. During a treatment session you will feel no pain and no anesthetic is required. You will, however, need more than one session (between 4 and 8, depending on the skin condition to be treated) in order to achieve optimal results.
