collaborative post | Retinoids, LED light masks, skin cycling, and slugging are just a few of the trending skincare treatments all over social media right now. Keeping up with the trends can involve a lot of time and money. We’re here to discuss a few treatments that replenish and refresh your skin that could actually save you time and money in the long run.
Invest in a Good Facial SPF Sunscreen
Investing in a good facial SPF sunscreen creates a healthy foundation. Sun damage is one of the biggest causes of premature skin aging and also one of the most preventable. Many people make it a priority to use sunscreen when visiting the pool or beach, but few make it a priority in their daily skincare routines.
We recommend going with something with at least a 30 SPF or higher. SPF 30 blocks out approximately 97% of harmful rays. A sunscreen with an SPF 50 blocks out approximately 98% of harmful rays. No sunscreen is capable of blocking 100% of the sun’s harmful rays, so make sure you reapply frequently to protect your skin.
Learn All About Skin Streaming
Skin streaming is a skincare routine that involves using minimal products. Rather than purchasing a wide variety of skincare products and spending hours on your daily routine, skin streaming brings you back to the basics. Instead of purchasing separate products for every need, consider choosing a few multi-purpose items.
A good facial sunscreen should be the first item in your arsenal, but beyond that, the products you choose will likely depend on your skin type and goals.
Keep Up With Routine Facials
Routine facials revitalize the skin and keep it looking fresh and younger for longer. A professional facial gives your skin the deep cleaning it needs, which can prevent acne and help limit fine lines.
While facials come at a price and require a few hours of your time each month, they can reduce how much you have to spend on other facial care products. Facials can also be an excellent part of your self-care routine, helping to reduce stress and boost your confidence. With so many facial types available, you can choose the one that you enjoy most.
A deep peel pore cleansing facial, for example, aims to clean out your pores to reduce oil production and give you a perfect matte appearance. Deep-cleaning facials are also capable of gently exfoliating your skin, which leaves it smoother and more youthful looking. Other facial types to consider include light therapy, aromatherapy, or anti-aging.
Schedule a Chemical Peel
Damaged skin and wrinkles are a normal and expected part of aging. As we get older, it’s important to look after your skin, and while you may not be able to prevent all signs of skin aging, there are treatments available to help minimize the damage.
A chemical peel is a skincare treatment that can help prevent or reverse some of the most common signs of aging. Chemical peels involve applying a chemical solution to the face to remove the top layers, which often contain damage, sun spots, and wrinkles.
Chemical peels are also a good option for treating skincare damage due to changing hormones, such as after pregnancy. Many people notice a difference in their skin after just one chemical peel treatment, so imagine the results when you make it a part of your skincare routine.
The level of chemical peel you need depends on your skin type and any skin conditions you have. It’s always a good idea to work with a professional for your chemical peel needs.
If peeling off the damaged layers of your skin doesn’t appeal to you, you might consider microneedling instead. Microneedling is a treatment that involves prodding the face with tiny needles. The needles encourage the body to begin the healing process, which sends new collagen to the face. Aestheticians use a small numbing cream, meaning the process is pain-free for you.
Micronееdling has еmеrgеd as a vеrsatilе and еffеctivе trеatmеnt for various skin issuеs. Bеyond its wеll-known bеnеfits in combating aging signs and improving ovеrall skin tеxturе, micronееdling can also bе a powеrful tool in addrеssing spеcific dеrmatological concеrns.
Onе such concеrn is hypеrpigmеntation, which can arisе duе to sun еxposurе, hormonal changеs, or post-inflammatory rеactions. Anothеr notablе application of micronееdling is in thе trеatmеnt of acnе scars. For individuals who havе strugglеd with pеrsistеnt acnе, thе aftеrmath can oftеn lеavе bеhind unsightly scars.

Nanoneeding is a version of microneedling that uses even smaller needles to treat a smaller area. This treatment may be a better option for skin with more damage or fine lines. Nanoneedling can help with acne scars and blemishes, enlarged pores, stretch marks, or hyperpigmentation.
A good skincare routine doesn’t have to be expensive or timely. In fact, investing in certain skincare treatments, like microneedling or facials, can give you a glowing foundation that requires minimal upkeep and products. These low-maintenance and low-cost skincare treatments are perfect for the busy woman on the go.
