Make Healthy Skin Your New Year’s Resolution
It’s finally 2021! We all have our resolutions, whether it’s getting that promotion, getting in shape, or taking better care of ourselves. Maybe this past year, with all of its challenges, prevented you from giving your skin the TLC it needs. Here are some quick and easy things you can do for your skin to make it glow for the new year!
A Treatment That’s Spot On
Active ingredients come in various forms, and one of the most effective ones out there for acne is benzoyl peroxide. This antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory agent is great for reducing inflamed, red pimples, and cystic acne.
Our Spot On gel treatment contains 5% Benzoyl Peroxide USP making it the perfect spot treatment for clearing existing blemishes and preventing future blemishes from forming. If your skin can tolerate it, you can apply this gel treatment all over a clean, dry face and then apply moisturizer on top.
However, we recommend using this gel only on the areas of your face that need it when you first start using it (unless otherwise directed by your dermatologist-recommended skin care routine). Benzoyl peroxide over-the-counter usually comes in strengths of 2.5 to 10%. The higher the percentage, the higher chance there is of your skin experiencing side effects of irritation, peeling, and dryness.
While benzoyl peroxide is an incredibly effective ingredient, it can be dangerous if not used carefully. Start slowly, and make sure to use plenty of moisturizer to combat possible dryness. This ingredient is excellent for those with oilier skin, as those with dry skin can feel more negative effects. Not sure how to categorize your skin? Take a skin type test with one of our dermatologists at the Miami Center for Dermatology.
The Porefect Cleanser
Salicylic acid is a great alternative to benzoyl peroxide, as it can be more tolerable for different skin types. This exfoliating ingredient is better for whiteheads and blackheads, unlike its counterpart. Our Porefect Cleanser is the perfect pairing of 2% Salicylic Acid USP and glycolic acid, a BHA and an AHA, respectively. This helps gently unclog pores, remove impurities, and even skin texture and tone without over-drying. This unique combination of medical-grade, acne-fighting ingredients helps regulate oil production and effectively clear problematic skin that is more sensitive to irritation.
Brighten for the New Year
Finally, our Vitamin C Skin Brightener is another great option for getting glowing skin for the new year. With a 20% Vitamin C Active Complex, this serum helps to brighten the complexion, support healthy collagen production, and fight free radicals. Even better, it features a controlled time-released delivery system for non-irritating, immediate & long-term benefits.
This brightening and hydrating vitamin C serum delivers skin-enhancing benefits of pure, stabilized L-ascorbic acid and tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, in combination with vitamins A and E, arbutin, bearberry, emblica, and ubiquinone, to achieve improved skin texture and tone, resulting in healthier-looking skin.
Many vitamin C skincare products out there do not actually deliver any benefits because the vitamin C isn’t stable enough and degrades before it can even touch your skin. Our serum only has the highest quality ingredients, allowing your skin to experience the full effects of vitamin C.
