If you’re confused about what you need to be doing for your skin, our skin consultation is the best way to find out. Our skin is the largest organ of our body, so it’s important we know how to take good care of it. Everyone’s skin is different, so everyone’s skincare can-and should-look different as well. From Premier Dermatology here’s what to know about skin types and their solutions.
Dry skin can be caused by various factors such as genetics, aging, and weather. To combat dry skin, it is important to use gentle, hydrating products. These products include moisturizers, hydrating serums, and gentle exfoliants. Our Newark dermatologist suggests avoiding harsh products that can strip the skin of its natural oils, as this can exacerbate dryness. At your skin consultation, our experts can go more in-depth about the products that may be best for you.
Oily skin can also be caused by genetics, hormonal changes, or environmental factors. People with oily skin tend to produce excess sebum, which can lead to clogged pores and breakouts. To combat oily skin, it is important to use products that are lightweight and oil-free. During your skin consultation, our dermatologists can help you find oil-free moisturizers, salicylic acid cleansers, and lightweight serums to keep your oily skin manageable yet still moisturized. If you’re having continuous breakouts that aren’t responding well to treatment, we also offer acne extraction.
Combination skin can be tricky to treat. People with combination skin tend to have an oily T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin) and dry cheeks. To combat combination skin, our Newark dermatologist suggests gentle cleansers, lightweight moisturizers, and balancing toners. It is important to avoid using heavy creams or harsh products, as this can exacerbate dryness or oiliness in certain areas of the face. When you book your Premier Dermatology skin consultation, we’ll help you look through products at our in-house spa best suited for your combination skin.
It’s not uncommon for patients to think their problem skin is beyond saving when they simply aren’t using the right products for their skin type. By booking your skin consultation, you can walk away with the knowledge needed to completely transform your skin. Whether you need assistance with clearing acne or you’re tired of feeling like an oil slick, at Premier Dermatology, we’re here to help.
