Make Sheltering in Place a Boon for Your Skin

The world has changed a lot because of COVID-19. Our Austin cosmetic surgery practice knows that many of our patients are adjusting to very different schedules and routines, and regular aesthetic treatments and beauty regimens have been put on hold. However, self-isolation doesn’t have to be an unproductive time.

Spending more time at home means you’re out of the sun and don’t require makeup. This offers an excellent opportunity to pay attention to your skin’s good health. By giving your skin a little extra TLC, you can easily see real improvements in a short amount of time. Here are a few useful tips for creating a nourishing, rejuvenating skincare routine at home.

Invest in quality products

When it comes to skin care, quality is definitely better than quantity. Invest in professional-grade products that can give your skin the support it deserves. If you have more time on your hands, take a moment to do a bit of research into the kinds of products that can help your skin type. Once you have a product in mind, find a respected brand you can truly trust, such as our Synergy Skin product line (which is available in our online store).

Get enough vitamin D

Our bodies mainly obtain vitamin D from time in the sun. Appropriate levels of vitamin D help skin fight premature aging and boost your immune system and bones. With most of us safely indoors, it can be hard to get the amount of vitamin D your body needs. Supplements and serums are a great way to get an extra dose of this important vitamin.

Limit non-work screen time

Many people are now working or learning from home. With so much time spent in front of TVs and computer screens, we’re extra susceptible to blue light. This high energy visible light can play a part in causing the skin to age prematurely. If you want to protect your skin, try putting away your phone or turning off the TV at a set time each evening.

Plan out your future treatments

Our practice knows the importance of social distancing. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t connect and work together to further your beauty goals. We offer virtual consultations for those who want to plan future skin rejuvenation treatments during this down period. You can also schedule procedures such as BOTOX® for wrinkles or fillers for adding youthful volume.

Not having access to your usual beauty routine may be a bit inconvenient. But your skin doesn’t have to suffer from the change in routine; you can make sheltering in place a boon for your skin.
