Happy New Year!
New year, new decade. Maybe it’s time to update your old skin care routine. Whether you are a tried and true believer in keeping up with your skin or a new beginner just getting the hang of what your skin care needs are, Toronto Dermatology Centre can help your skin navigate the next decade with ease.
A good quality cleanser, moisturizer and sunblock takes less than a minute of your day and will add years to a younger looking you. From gentle cleanser such as Skinceuticals Soothing Foam Cleanser to more active cleansers like ZO Exfoliating Cleanser, we carry the best of the best to get your skin prepped for moisturizers, serums or even topical medications. And did you know that there are retinols that can be used during the daytime? ZO carries several moisturizers with .5% retinol, but it’s buffered so that it can be easily applied during the day. And with proper sunscreen, there are no worries when worn out in the sun (come on sun, we need you!!). And for those who find the winter months completely dehydrate your skin, you are not alone. I find the Skinceuticals Triple Lipid Restore absolutely irreplaceable during the winter months. I have oily skin, and this moisturizer is not only the most hydrating, gorgeous cream I have used, but it won’t break my skin out. I simply find that to be amazing!
TDC has a beautiful new line of skin care called Skin Essentials MD as well. Now if you really want to make a new start for you skin this year, I would absolutely suggest speaking with one of our medical estheticians to find just the right Skin Essentials MD for your skin.
Throw away your old make up and try Jane Iredale’s 100% mineral make up. This makeup won’t clog the pores like regular make up does, and it protects the skin instead of just covering it up. Or, have you tried the Oxygenetix 100% mineral wear? It is not transferable, which means it won’t come off on your winter coat or scarf. Once on, it lasts all day, looks incredibly natural and is actually beneficial for your skin’s health. Oh, and it comes off easily when you wash at night because it sits on the skin instead of getting all trapped in the pores like most make up products. Win-win situation, right?
And for those of you who are fed up with brown spots, broken vessels on your face, spider veins on your legs or just wanting to freshen up your skin on a regular basis, Toronto Dermatology Centre offers numerous services, the best in laser technology and practically anything else you can think of to make 2020 the year you shine. And of course, if the holiday season included a few too many sweets, don’t forget about Coolsculpting. A non- surgical way to permanently remove fat cells, it is easy and quick without downtime. And finally our dermatologists are specialists with Botox and fillers, and can improve your look after just one visit.
So take a picture of you in 2020, get started on your skin now. Follow through and keep up the good work. You may be surprised in 2030 how little your skin has changed. Years pass by, but we can help you stay looking younger longer, and the sooner you start, the happier your skin will be.
Best wishes in 2020, and I hope to see you soon.
