Refresh your skincare routine


(NC) Over time and with changes in season and age, your skin may develop new unique conditions like dry patches or even adult acne. It may be time to try something new to take care of them. Follow these tips to help reevaluate and refresh your skincare routine.

Give your skin care routine a makeover

Take stock and assess your current skincare routine. Is there anything missing? Does it include cleanser, toner, moisturizer and sunscreen?

Take a step back and make sure you’re following a basic three-step skincare routine with a gentle cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen. Once you’ve committed and can regularly practice these basic steps, you can add to your routine or target specific skin concerns.

Care for your skin from head to toe

Don’t limit your skincare practices to just your face. Your skin is the largest organ in your whole body and acts as a barrier between the environment and your internal organs. That’s why it’s so important to ensure you give it regular TLC, especially any overlooked areas like your elbows, knees and back. Make sure you regularly cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize to restore your skin’s natural moisture barrier.

Consult an expert

Determining what your skin needs can be an overwhelming task. If you’re not sure where to start, what you need or how to treat more problematic conditions like eczema or body acne, book an appointment with your family doctor or dermatologist to learn about which treatment options are right for you. There have been huge advancements in Canada regarding acne treatments recently, including a topical retinoid treatment that treats both facial and body acne.
