3 Expert-Approved Healthy Aging Habits for Skin

One of the most meaningful things you can do for your skin is find a skincare professional who can give you personalized, thoughtful advice for specific skin concerns. Not only that, but if you build a relationship with your skin therapist, they can help you as your skin changes and evolves over time.

“[People should find and] build relationships with their “skin people”. I think it’s really important for people to find therapists who can take care of you as an individual,” says Natalie Aguilar, dermatology nurse and founder of N4 Skincare.

Most professionals recommend a monthly cadence for a facial. “Skin regenerates about every 28 days. Skin cells come back and build up,” says board-certified dermatologist Ava Shamban, MD, founder of SKINFIVE, in our guide to facial care. “Therefore, it’s best to treat the skin at the end of the skin’s life cycle roughly every month.”

Of course, this can be an expensive business that may not be accessible to everyone. If monthly is out of the question, try scheduling one for seasonal changes (about two or four times a year). Plus, you can always talk to your skincare practitioner about your budget and time constraints, so they can better guide you on how to take care of your skin during the longer intervals between appointments. -you.
