At Jones Plastic Surgery we’re asked the same question time and time again — “What’s the secret to youthful skin from head to toe?”
Although we offer surgical solutions that address skin damage, first and foremost we are responsible professionals offering common sense advice to every client. In this case, rather than dive straight into the various surgical options and other skin treatments available, we tell our clients that taking care of their skin day in and day out is a far better approach than to simply rely on surgery once the damage is done. It’s a case of preventing problems before they require a heavier hand later on.
As for the secret to healthier skin, there really is no specific secret. Instead, it’s all about common sense and getting yourself into the good habits you ideally should have been following all along. For example, it’s impossible to maintain healthy skin without a healthy diet and plenty of exercise. It may sound cliché, but even with all the surgery in the world you cannot expect to look your best unless you keep yourself in optimal health.
As for moisturizers, you may not realize it but no matter which creams and lotions you use, none of them actually inject moisture into your skin. Instead, they lock in the skin’s natural moisture, which is why it’s a terrible idea to wait until skin looks dry and then apply moisturizer. Moisturizing after a bath or shower is always the best way to go.
We’re always happy to offer our expert advice on how to better care for your skin, so feel free to give the Jones Plastic Surgery team a call any time.
