Maintaining A Fresh and Flawless Complexion in 2021

Maintaining your complexion can be more of a daunting task than reaching your skin goals. A lot of time and energy was put into achieving a fresh and flawless face. Finding the right skincare routine, eating well, and managing stress is a lot of work. SKINNEY Medspa is featured on in an article titled, So You’ve Reached Your 2020 Skin Goals – Now What? Beauty experts weigh in on how to maintain your complexion in the new year. Learn the best ways to treat several different skin issues once you’ve achieved your goals.


Preventing Acne

Maintaining your complexion after your acne has cleared up is very important. Experts say it will help prevent recurring acne from appearing. Don’t just spot treat, but treat the entire face. Andriana Martino is an esthetician and co-founder of SKINNEY Medspa in NYC. She thinks people with a history of acne should use products with glycolic and/or salicylic acids. Martino says, “It can help stop a breakout in its tracks to prevent future breakouts.” Martino recommends The Some by Mi AHA-BHA-PHA 30Days Miracle Toner. It contains salicylic acid to keep the skin clear.


Preventing Hyperpigmentation

Developing dark spots is usually traced back to UV light exposure from the sun. Once you’ve maintained your complexion and brightened dark spots, never forget sunscreen, it can be the most critical part of your skincare routine. Experts say to use products with at least SPF 30 that contains broad-spectrum protection. Josie Holmes is an esthetician at SKINNEY Medspa in NYC. She thinks it’s important to use vitamin C and licorice root. Both contain brightening ingredients. Holmes recommends using Neogen Real Vita C Powder Lemon with Acwell Licorice pH Balancing Cleansing Toner. If you’re looking for professional treatment, she says go for a laser facial like Clear & Brilliant or Fraxel.


Preventing Fine Lines & Wrinkles

Maintaining your complexion from fine lines and wrinkles can be improved by using retinol. Continuing the use of this product will improve your skin’s appearance. SKINNEY Medspa’s Adriana Martino says, “Professional treatments like Fraxel, Microneedling, Botox, and radiofrequency like Thermage will keep your skin looking younger longer.”


Preventing Dryness & Dehydration

Maintaining your complexion from dry and dehydrated skin is essential. SKINNEY Medspa’s Josie Holmes says if your skin is dry, it lacks oil. If it’s dehydrated, it lacks water. Holmes suggests using a creamy cleanser and hyaluronic acid in your daily skincare routine if you’ve experienced either issue. Exfoliating the skin is necessary to reduce dry skin. She recommends using the Plant Base Waterfall Moist Balanced Hylauronic Acid 100. It’s a serum that is a favorite among many beauty experts. If you’re looking for a professional treatment, Holmes says go for a HydraFacial.
