Skin Care Tips From NYC Dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine
POSTED ON MONDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2014 AT 5:48 PM by Dr. Jody Levine
Beautiful skin begins with a daily skin care plan. Sticking to a strict schedule of your skin routine will help you attain beautiful results in the long run and your skin will love you for it! Not sure where to start? NYC dermatologist Dr. Jody Levine shares some inside tips to get you started on flawless, younger looking skin!
Tip 1: Exfoliate only 1-2 x a week - not daily as that will promote more dead skin.
Tip 2: Use a glycolic or lactic acid moisturizer for super soft skin at night and a daily moisturizer with sunblock in the am- use one with green tea for the ultimate antioxidant and healthy skin.
Tip 3: Once a month, use a gentle glycolic peel to get rid of dead skin. For even softer and smoother results, try a mild laser peel with a Micro Laser Peel. These peels require no numbing and are usually painless. Some patients experience mild redness and slight peeling in the days following but the results are amazing.
Tip 4: Moisturize with products containing ceramides. Ceramides are naturally found within the outer layer of the skin and help the skin retain moisture. Adding lotions and creams containing cermaides will keep your skin moisturized and hydrated.
Tip 5: Drink 1-2 cups of green tea daily.
Tip 6: Use a sunblock that contains zinc. This ingredient will help you protect from the full spectrum of UVA and UVB rays.
