Skin Care

Ever wonder what it’d be like to receive skin care from the experts? Skincare doesn’t have to be complicated, expensive, or take a great deal of time. Follow Derick Dermatology’s tips for a lifetime of beautiful skin:

  • Cleanse your face morning and night. Apply the mildest product that works for your skin type, with clean hands; no washcloth (they can harbor germs and bacteria), and no harsh scrubbing. Rinse with warm, not hot water.
  • Use a mild toner on a cotton pad to remove excess oil and dead skin cells.
  • Smooth a little acne medication on troublesome areas, if needed. If you do get a pimple, don’t pick or squeeze it.
  • Follow with a light, oil-free moisturizer. Don’t forget to use sun protection every day! If you don’t want this extra step, purchase a moisturizer that includes SPF.
  • Shower and wash your hair daily.
  • Consider lifestyle and environmental factors that may have a detrimental effect on your skin – avoid smoking and sun (or tanning bed) exposure; eat a healthy diet, drink lots of water, and get regular exercise.
  • See your dermatologist with questions.
