Alumier Skin Experts / October 7, 2018
Do you know what’s amazing? Finally getting a customized AlumierMD treatment for that skin issue you’ve been meaning to address. You know what’s even more amazing? Having the results of said treatment last more than a day after you leave the skin care professional’s table.
In today’s world of results-on-demand, we are so wrapped up in taking that perfect post-procedure selfie that we don’t realize the work doesn’t stop there. The truth is our skin needs additional TLC for the procedure’s results to really shine.
It All Starts with a Skin Care Professional
I know we’re probably stating the obvious here but having a skin care professional in our life is a good thing. After all it’s our body’s largest organ so it’s high time we stop giving it an afterthought. Our skin needs more love in this world. It’s constantly exposed to all sorts of elements: pollution, the sun’s UVA and UVB rays, lack of sleep, personal stress levels, lifestyle choices, dietary decisions and so much more. The effects of it all aren’t immediately noticeable, but the evidence sure does creep up on us, revealing itself much later.
Now let’s add the aging process to the equation. Here’s a fun fact: did you know that we lose 1% of collagen every year from the age of twenty-one? Exactly. We aren’t that concerned about collagen, though, until we actually see the signs of its decline. When we see it, we panic and turn to Google to figure out what to do.
A skin care professional with their customized tool-kit of treatment options will get you glowing again. It doesn’t just stop there, either. Home care is essential to maximize the results of your treatment.
Key Ways to Maximize the Results of Your Treatment at Home
You went in for your consult, and now you have just finished your treatment. It’s time to pop the champagne, right? Not so fast. First — take that selfie (obviously!), then give yourself props for giving your skin some love. Bravo! Now it’s up to you to ensure that the treatment results reach their fullness, and that means post-procedure home care.
First, Always Remember To:
Cleanse your skin in the morning and in the evening.
- Clean your blending sponges and makeup tools. Don’t forget, they house all sorts of bacteria that you probably don’t even want to know about.
- Always, and we mean ALWAYS, remove your makeup at the end of the day.
- Pay attention to the order in which the products are to be used. There’s a scientific reason why products are to be used in a certain order.
- Wash your pillow cover, as it also collects bacteria night after night.
