Glen Carbon, Ill. (August 15, 2023) Summer is wrapping up, the kids are headed back to school and new routines are about to be in full swing. Kristen M. Jacobs, MD, local aesthetic physician and owner of Ooh La La Spa, Anti-Aging & Wellness is educating people on how to keep their skin healthy as schedules kick into gear.
“We know life is crazy, especially when you’re chauffeuring your kids around, helping with homework and packing lunches,” said Dr. Jacobs. “We want our patients to take time for themselves to take care of their skin. Your skin is the largest organ on your body and we need to prioritize its health like any other body part. If your skin suddenly starts feeling tight and dry, that generally means it’s time to adjust your skincare routine.”
Dr. Jacobs recommends several skincare treatments that won’t interfere with a busy lifestyle that can offer results. One treatment for example, Forever Young BBL™ by Sciton®, an innovative technology that delivers light therapy targeting the signs of aging and sun damage can provide a more refreshed, rejuvenated and youthful appearance. This treatment can treat a variety of skin concerns caused by aging and sun exposure, such as freckles, fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots and sun damage.
“Several of our treatments require no downtime and are easy to squeeze in between soccer practice, work and school,” said Dr. Jacobs. “Several of our treatments like Sculptra, Laser Genesis along with Ultherapy can help produce and stimulate collagen, a protein that serves as one of the main building blocks for healthy skin. Another quick and relaxing way to get healthy glowing skin is with our Diamond Glow facial.”
Dr. Jacobs said she recommends adding a thicker moisturizer in the fall and winter months and to try switching to a moisturizing cleanser. Although the summer pool days may be over, Dr. Jacobs also recommends people continue using a physical sunscreen every day and remember to drink plenty of water to help your skin stay hydrated and healthy.
