Hey, skincare enthusiasts! It’s time to level up your skincare game and embrace the new year with a fresh, radiant glow. We all know that taking care of our skin is not just about looking good; it’s about feeling good too. So, let’s dive into some expert tips that will help you achieve your skincare goals and boost your confidence in 2024.

Let’s Address Some Common Skincare Concerns

Acne: Banish Breakouts with Care

Say goodbye to pesky pimples! Preventing and treating acne starts with a consistent routine. Keep your skin clean, exfoliate gently, and incorporate noncomedogenic products with acne-fighting ingredients like mandelic acid, salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. Remember, your skin is unique, so finding the right products may require working with a licensed Aesthetician. At Zero Nine Day Spa, our acne specialists can help you identify the type of acne as well as the cause you are struggling with and help you achieve clear and radiant skin! Some of my favorite products for acne include: GlyMed’s Idyllic Cleanser, Blemish Control NO. 5, and Anfisa’s An Dew Serum.

Aging: Age Gracefully, Embrace Your Radiance

Aging is a beautiful journey, and we’re here to help you age gracefully. Nurture your skin with antioxidants like my holy grail Alto Advanced Defense and Repair Serum, hyaluronic acid like Interfuse Intensive Treatment LINES, and retinol, my all time favorite and top selling at Zero Nine Day Spa is the SkinBetter Science AlphaRet Overnight Cream to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Don’t forget to protect your skin from harmful UV rays with broad-spectrum sunscreen (Tone Smart SPF 75 is the only SPF I have ever loved and actually look forward to putting on daily!) Aging is a privilege, so let your inner radiance shine through.

Dry Skin: Hydration is Key

Quench your skin’s thirst with intense hydration. Look for moisturizers and serums packed with hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and natural oils to replenish moisture in your skin. And don’t forget to drink plenty of water to hydrate from within. Say hello to soft, supple skin! Some of my favorite moisturizers for chronically dry skin are Epicutis Hyvia Creme and GlyMed’s Barrier Repair Cream. You may consider using an occlusive like Anfisa’s An Balm over your moisturizer to seal in the hydration and nutrients, boosting your hydration level even further!

Oily Skin: Balance is Everything

Taming oily skin is all about balance. Incorporate gentle cleansers to remove excess oil without stripping your skin. DM me on Instagram and I’ll ship you out my favorite cleansers for oily skin (Lychee Cleanser or Orange You Jelly Cleanser). Opt for a lightweight, acne safe moisturizer (I recommend GlyMed’s Oxygen Cream and mattifying primers to keep shine at bay. Embrace your natural glow while keeping breakouts under control.

Sensitive Skin: Love and Nurture Your Delicate Skin

Sensitive skin requires extra care and attention. For those with sensitive skin, I understand that it can be a challenge to find products that work for you. That’s why we offer a variety of options specifically designed for your delicate skin. Our gentle formulas are free of irritating fragrances and harsh ingredients, so you can love and nurture your skin without worry. Some of my HOLY GRAIL products for sensitive and/or reactive skin are: Epicutis Lipid Serum and Hyvia Creme these are especially ideal for patients who suffer from eczema/psoriasis or other inflammatory issues, Anfisa’s An Dew Serum is a favorite especially if you suffer with redness and texture, and finally boost your skin’s defense with GlyMed’s CBD Skin Mist and CBD Smoothing Serum. Treat your delicate skin with love and watch it thrive.

Large Pores: Minimize and Refine

While outside of professional treatments like microneedling, we can’t physically shrink our pores, we can minimize their appearance. Cleanse your skin thoroughly, exfoliate regularly (2-3x per week with SkinBetter’s AlphaRet Peel Pads) and incorporate pore-minimizing serums like SkinBetter’s Mystro Active Balance Serum and GlyMed’s Serious Action Masque 1-2x a week into your routine. Remember, it’s all about creating the illusion of smaller pores and embracing your natural beauty.

Healthy Skin Barrier: Protect and Strengthen

A strong skin barrier is essential for healthy, glowing skin. Nourish your skin with gentle cleansers, hydrating moisturizers, and products rich in antioxidants. Don’t forget to shield your skin from environmental stressors with SPF and antioxidants. A healthy skin barrier is your first line of defense against dullness and damage. Some of the best barrier building products are: Vital Lipid Lotion and Relief Bio Powder, DM me on Instagram and I’ll ship them right to your door!

Skincare Trends and Innovations

Personalized Skincare: Tailored to You

Embrace the power of personalized skincare routines. Utilize virtual consults with licensed skincare professionals to create a regimen tailored to your unique needs. Your skin is one-of-a-kind, so why settle for a one-size-fits-all approach?

Skincare Diets: Nourish from Within

What you put inside your body reflects on the outside. Explore the impact of nutrition on your skin health. Incorporate antioxidant-rich foods, omega-3 fatty acids, and hydrating fruits and vegetables into your diet. Feed your skin with the nutrients it craves.

Medical Grade Skincare: Elevate Your Routine

Take your skincare routine to the next level with medical-grade products. These scientifically advanced formulations are designed to deliver visible results. Consult with one of our Zero Nine Day Spa Licensed Medical Aestheticians to incorporate these powerhouse products into your regimen.
