Starting with a clean canvas is the first rule of skin care. Without proper cleansing, your face accumulates buildup from products, makeup, air pollution, dead skin, and other dirt and debris. Buildup overtaxes the skin, making it prone to irritation, inflammation, premature aging, acne, and other issues. Additionally, you won’t get the full benefit of your skin care routine. That’s why it’s important to wash your face properly, and deep clean the skin on a regular basis.
Before delving into a deeper clean, here’s a checklist to make sure you’re washing your face properly on a daily basis:
In addition to the steps above, you may want to add in a DIY deep cleaning step once per week. Here are some safe, gentle ways to deep clean your face at home.
For this easy method, simply pour steaming water into a bowl, place a towel over your head, and hold your face over the steam for 5-10 minutes. Follow up with your regular cleansing routine.
DIY masks that you can make at home are a great go-to for getting that extra-clean feeling in a pinch. Or, purchase a clay mask to augment your usual skin care routine.
Chemical exfoliation is an effective way to remove dead skin cells and loosen dirt from pores. There are also manual exfoliators, such as skin brushes, that are gentle enough to use on the face for a squeaky clean finish.
For the deepest clean that also restores skin’s beautiful glow, Venus Glow™ facial renewal treatments flush out pores and pull dirt, excess oil, and impurities from below the skin’s surface, resulting in a more radiant, refreshed complexion. The micro-massaging tip then stimulates nutrients to spread through the derma layer and restore nourishment to tired, stressed skin. It’s a fast, safe, and effective way to leave skin feeling noticeably healthier, cleaner, and more hydrated.
While proper cleansing and a good skin care routine will help prevent aging, there’s no at-home equivalent to the technology of a medical aesthetic treatment. Here are the best ones to keep your skin looking its most youthful.
Photofacial treatments are a safe, non-surgical way to improve the look of aging and discoloration due to sun damage, Using Intense Pulsed Light technology to rejuvenate skin from beneath the surface, photofacials reinvigorate the skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin, and improves skin tone and texture for a radiant, younger-looking appearance.
Wrinkle reduction treatments deliver targeted radio frequency (RF) energy deep below the skin’s surface to stimulate skin cell renewal and promote increased collagen and elastin production. They use a gentle heating process to boost your skin’s natural processes, supporting skin health from the inside out in comfortable sessions, with no downtime. Quick and effective, wrinkle reduction treatments fade fine lines, restoring firmer, more youthful-looking skin.
TriBella™ treatments combine three powerful anti-aging therapies into one. First, a photofacial improves skin tone by fading age spots, and reducing sun damage. Then, the anti-aging treatment firms skin, diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. Lastly, the skin resurfacing treatment smoothes uneven skin texture, improving the appearance of scars, rosacea, enlarged pores, and more. If you’ve never tried a medical aesthetic treatment before, this is a great entry point into the world of highly effective treatments with visible results and no downtime.
Cleaning your skin thoroughly—but gently—is essential for clearing acne. Try using a cleanser that contains actives like salicylic acid or glycolic acid to really get pores clean. If you’re one of the 50 million people in the US alone who struggle with adult acne, and topical treatments aren’t working or you’d like to get rid of your acne faster and more effectively, consider an acne reduction treatment.
Venus Versa™ acne treatments use Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to heal existing acne-related inflammation, while destroying acne-causing bacteria throughout the layers of the skin. This helps to minimize future breakouts and protect against scarring for noticeably smoother, healthier-looking skin. For the scars that acne can leave behind, skin resurfacing treatments stimulate scar healing by delivering radio frequency energy via microneedling, a technology that creates tiny micro-dermal wounds to promote and accelerate the skin’s natural healing process. Post-treatment, the boosted collagen and elastin levels correct scar tissue, improve textural irregularities of the skin, and restore a brighter, smoother complexion.
