What exactly is "glowing skin"?
Everyone has a different definition, but there are some universal truths. We associate certain words with glowing skin, including radiant, hydrated, smooth, and youthful. Fit skin is — after all — glowing skin.
But, most dermatologists classify glowing skin by how smooth, soft, and supple it is. Dermatologists also evaluate the texture, tone, and turgor of the skin when developing treatment plans.
So, how can you obtain that much sought-after glow?
There are two ways — one way is using the right skincare products, such as retinol, and the other way is getting skin treatments that use energy-based devices, like Clear + Brilliant, the Fire and Ice laser facial, and IPL facials.
How do these work to impart a healthy glow? Through purposeful damage. If you cause a little bit of damage to the skin through the retinol products you use at night and through getting energy-based skin treatments, it makes the collagen matrix under your skin stronger. As the lasers penetrate the dermis, they trigger the body to kick into healing mode. As the body works to heal the damaged skin, it ultimately surfaces fresh new skin and along with it, a bright, healthy glow.
Once that purposeful damage is induced, you need plenty of hydration, rest, relaxation, and moisturization. Making these a part of your standard beauty routine will enable you to achieve optimal Skin Fitness and that radiant glow all year round.
