Having Healthy Skin at Any Age

plastic surgeon las vegas

Healthy skin at any age

Your skin’s health is most often the first thing that someone notices about you. It can reveal the stories of your life from pregnancy to sun-damage spots. You may hear a lot about how to protect your skin from sun’s rays but there are many other simple health moves that can keep your skin in fabulous shape, decade after decade.

Beating acne

Hormone-related skin problems aren’t just for teenagers. These high hormone levels before your period can create higher tendencies for acne around your mouth, chin, and nose. This can also exacerbate eczema on the face and hands. To treat adult acne, try benzoyl peroxide and retinol. These two things together will help minimize the redness and appearance of acne.

Baby your skin

Are you ready to start a family? Your skin may be clearer than ever while you’re pregnant, thanks to extra estrogen. Pregnancy may cause other skin problems, however. If you have any questions about this, talk to your doctor. He may prescribe a cream that contains lightening agents to fade the spots. If cool baths and moisturizers don’t remove itching or other problems, you may need a steroid cream.

Pick the products that are right for you

Consider a prescription for retinoid like tretinoin to minimize signs of aging and uneven skin. This includes wrinkles, and age spots. Try skin-care products with botanicals such as fever-few or licorice root. These have antioxidant activity to combat UV damage.

If you follow each of these tips, you will continue to have healthy skin as you go throughout your life. Making sure you take care of your skin and noting any problems that you may have will help you to have the best looking skin possible. If you do this, you will be much happier with the results. If you have any questions about skin care, talk to your doctor immediately. Our plastic surgeon in Las Vegas knows a lot about taking care of your skin, and would love to help you.

If you are careful with your skin and understand how best to do this, you will find that you have less problems and will not run into anything that may have serious problems for your skin. If you are very careful with how you do this and how you combat the problem, you will want to talk to your doctor because he or she will be able to help you understand how best to combat anything. If you have any skin issues at all, we can help you combat them. There is always a way to do this, it is just important to understand how best to do it if you are concerned about any sort of problem. If you are not careful with your skin and how you control it, you will find that they can turn into significant problems. If you are interested in a consultation with us, please call us today at 702.410.9800.

 

Tips for Avoiding Skin Cancer

Tips for avoiding skin cancer in Las Vegas

Avoiding Skin Cancer

Skin cancer is a very difficult thing to endure, and it is important and wise to make sure you don’t have to! If you have any concerns about skin cancer, our plastic surgeon can help ease your mind. However, it is better to avoid it in the first place. Read on to find out more about avoiding skin cancer.

 

Wear sunscreen year round

Sunscreens don’t filter out all of the harmful UV radiation, especially the kind that leads to melanoma. However, they do play a major role in the sun protection of your skin. Use a sunscreen that is broad spectrum and has an SPF of at least 15. Apply this sunscreen generously as well as reapplying every two hours. If you are swimming or perspiring, it is important to do it more often than every two hours.  Be sure to apply it to all exposed skin, including lips, tips of your ears, and the back of your hands and neck.

Avoid tanning beds

Yes, we all want that beautiful tan glow. However, getting it from the tanning bed is much more harmful than you think. The lights used in tanning beds emit UV rays (obviously – how else would you tan?) but they can increase your risk of skin cancer. There are many ways to get that glow without harming yourself. Spray tans are actually quite sophisticated these days, so if you wish to have one, try it out! There are also many over-the-counter tanning lotions that will give you a glow without the harmful rays.

Most skin cancers are actually preventable. If you follow these tips, you will avoid it as much as possible. Keeping yourself and your children safe from the harmful rays of UV light will help you stay healthy for a longer period of time. However, don’t deprive yourself of sunlight too much. Not enough sunlight exposure can actually cause deficiencies in vitamins you need most, so just be sure to protect yourself, but you can still enjoy the sun too.

It is very important to take care of your skin, because if you don’t you may have significant problems that may be caused by not taking care of it that can harm your skin with problems such as suncreen and sunburns and sun spots. If you are not careful, you will run into such a significant amount of problems that you will not know what to do. It is vital that you take care of your skin so that you can live a long and happy life and avoid any problems that may come from having significant skin problems.

At Home Skincare Tips

plastic surgery las vegasHome Skincare Tips

It may seem odd for a plastic surgeon to be giving out advice on defying your age without surgery, but this is an important aspect of the cosmetic industry! Read on to find out ways to keep your skin healthy and looking fresh and beautiful.

Use Avocado-Honey Moisturizer

A moisturizer is an anti-aging must-have. By helping your skin keep a lot of is moisture, it makes your complexion look smooth! This recipe will also leave your skin feeling dewy and youthful. Use 3 tablespoons of fresh cream, ¼ of an avocado, and 1 tablespoon of honey.

Wrinkle-Fighting Salad

This fruit salad is energy-boosting, and is packed with antioxidants, which protect the skin from sun damage. It will also up your circulation to help deliver essential nutrients to skin. Eat it for breakfast and start your day on a wonderful note.  Combine ½ cup fresh strawberries, blueberries, 1 kiwi, ½ cup pomegranate seeds, ½ cup organic orange juice, and a handful of chopped walnuts.

Spot Treatment for Acne

If you have a blemish that needs to disappear fast, try out this trick – a yeast concoction will help your acne be gone before you know it! Include Brewer’s Yeast, a squeeze of lemon juice, and water. Apply right on your pimple and leave for 10 minutes.

Basil Toner

This is a great recipe for those who are prone to acne. The basil acts as an antiseptic, which helps clear acne-causing bacteria, and will also improve circulation to your skin. Use 3 tablespoons dried basil leaves, and 1 cup of boiling water.

Agave/Lemon Age Spot Removal

Your hands are the first indicator of your age, but this scrub can help. If you exfoliate your hands, you will lift off the top layer of dead skin cells, which contains much of the pigment that leaves age spots behind. Use ½ cup cooked rice, a tablespoon of agave nectar, and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice.

Almond and Sugar Facial Scrub

Exfoliating your face often helps get rid of skin cells which dull your complexion. If you do this, your skin will look smoother and brighter. Use 3 tablespoons of fresh cream, a cup of white sugar, ½ cup of brown sugar, ½ cup of ground almonds, and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Applying this to your face will give it a fresh, clean feel!

Coconut Deep Conditioner

Keep your hair smooth, shiny, and hydrated with this natural conditioning treatment and apply it once a week. Use ½ cup mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon coconut oil, 1 teaspoon coconut extract.

These tips and more will get you feeling your best and will also make you look younger! You will love these results, and you’ll love the way you feel!
