Being comfortable in your skin can be a challenge when you’re bombarded by ill-informed advice on how to take care of it. Thankfully, the experts at Criswell & Criswell Plastic Surgery are here to help you stay in the know. To help you achieve your best face, here are three of our favorite skin care myths dispelled.
Myth number one: Skin care products will stop working as your skin adapts to them. This couldn’t be further from the truth. The key ingredient in every skin care product, whether it’s an SPF to prevent sun damage or a retinoid to curb acne and wrinkles, is intended for long-term use. Since keeping your skin healthy is a lifelong endeavor, we offer medical grade, top-of-the-line products like Obagi®, which can not only enhance and maintain the results of our skin rejuvenation treatments, but can be used on their own to minimize the appearance of premature aging, hyperpigmentation, acne, and sun damage, while keeping your skin happy and healthy.
Myth number two: Acne is just for kids. We wish this were true, but too many people still suffer from this pesky condition! BBL photofacials are great for addressing pesky acne, reducing the appearance of acne with no downtime required. Knowing first-hand the demand for products that can treat acne and keep it at bay, we offer Obagi® products and Jane Iredale® mineral cosmetics. Both are comprehensive product lines that can help make your skin look and feel amazing.
Myth number three: You don’t need sunblock in the fall and winter. News alert: Sunscreen should be the most important part of your daily skin care routine every day for the rest of your life. Regardless of the weather or time of year, the sun keeps giving off its invisible rays of damaging ultraviolet light. With skin cancer rates on the rise, the need for SPF sun protection has never been more crucial. This is where Jane Iredale comes to the rescue. There’s no easier way to protect your skin from the sun, thanks to this mineral makeup that has SPF protection built right in so it’s impossible to skimp on your sun protection.
