3 Tips to Get Your Skin Back in Shape Post-Pandemic!
With the pandemic having taken up much of the past few months, far too many of us have drastically ignored our skincare routines, as that’s been the farthest thing from most of our minds while being locked down. The fact is that with so many of us out of work and out of school, and others working mainly from home, we’ve essentially got nobody to impress – and it’s very unlikely that any of us are going through any type of skincare regimen. Sure, being in the midst of a worldwide pandemic, that forced pretty much the entire country and world to lock down and stay at home for months on end, meant you didn’t have to have your skin photoshoot ready on a daily basis. But now that the country seems to be on the path towards opening up again, and sooner or later, you’ll have to start going out again, and seeing people again, and the last thing you want when that happens is bad, blemished, acne-filled skin! According to Dr. Jackson of Jackson Dermatology, considered by many to be the best black derm Brooklyn has to offer, the longer your “skincare break” has been, the harder it will be to bring your skin back to its former glory. In fact, taking a break at all, has likely set you back a couple of weeks or possibly months – but there’s no need to worry too much, Dr. Jackson, the best black dermatologist Brooklyn has around, and his team at Jackson Dermatology are here to help you get your skin ready to head right back to the office, and ready to have you acne and blemish free in no time at all! To help patients deal with their skincare issues, here are a few of the most important things you can do to get your skin back in shape before the summer is over.
· The Facial Cleansing Brush
This is one of those tools that many people probably haven’t even heard of at all, but the fact is that a cleansing brush is a device that takes off more dirt, bacteria and unwanted particles – including makeup from the skin, than any other methods at all! According to Dr. Jackson, the best black derm Brooklyn has in practice, not only does a cleansing brush simply just cleanse your skin, cleansing brushes also exfoliate the skin’s surface, leaving it looking and feeling softer and smoother. Just be sure to use a device that’s designed for acne. Some bristles can be too rough, causing redness and sensitivity.
· The Right Face Wash Will Go a Long Way
While we all want to get rid of our blackheads and white heads faster and use a cleanser that will simply blow them apart right away, the fact of the matter is that those types of cleansers are far too harsh on your skin and it is definitely a lot better to go for something that’s a lot more mild of a cleanser than anything else. Plus, a cleanser, that is specifically designed for acne-prone skin that will help with oil control, without stripping the face of its vital “good” natural oils that are there to protect the skin, are the most ideal cleansers. According to Dr. Jackson, the best black derm Brooklyn has to offer, all too often, a harsh facial cleanser will strip the skin of ALL oils, which might sound good to most people but the good oils being stripped will cause the skin to be stripped of its natural oils, and this can kick up overall production of bad oils, which often results in, yes, more breakouts. In other words, it’s the boomerang effect right there on your chin.
· Skincare Toners Can Make a Huge Difference
Skin-stripping high-alcohol toners are a bad idea for most people, especially those susceptible to acne. Instead, Dr. Jackson, the best black dermatologist Brooklyn has to offer, suggests a toner with glycolic acid or salicylic acid morning and evening after cleansing to prevent dead skin cells from clogging pores. The right toner can also balance the skin’s natural pH level, soothe and calm skin, while reducing redness.
