If there’s one thing that Dr. Toni Stockton emphasizes to patients it’s that good skin care starts at home. One of the best ways for you to take good care of your skin while at home is to invest in good skin care products. But unless you are using them right, you may not be getting the most out of them. From using them consistently to getting the right products, let’s take a closer look at a few ways for you to get the most out of your skin care.
Use Them Consistently
If you are going to recover from an infection, you have to consistently take your antibiotics. Similarly, if you are going to get rid of acne or wrinkles, you need to consistently use the skin care products that Dr. Stockton either prescribes or recommends. If you are having a hard time getting into the habit of applying your skincare every day (or twice a day) try doing things like setting reminders in your phone or setting out the products on your bathroom counter so that you don’t forget them.
Use the Right Products
The fastest way for you to get nowhere with your skin care products is by using the wrong ones. During your initial consultation with Dr. Stockton, she will assess your skin, ask you questions, and then determine what types of skincare products are going to give you the best benefits. Whether they are prescription, over-the-counter, or a combination of both, you should hopefully start to finally see real results.
Use Them With Treatments
In conjunction with using the right skin care products consistently, Dr. Stockton may also encourage you to use them in conjunction with certain procedures. For instance, collagen induction treatments like micro needling oftentimes help patients absorb products better.
As you can see, your skin care products aren’t going to entirely do all of the work for you. If you want to learn more about skin care and what you should be using on your face, contact Dr. Stockton at our Phoenix office at (480) 610-6366.
