5 Things to Do for Your Skin in 2024

New skin, new you. Here are 5 things DermUtopia recommends doing for your skin in 2024. 

1. Schedule a Skin Exam

 Have you thought about your next skin exam?

As Dr. Dintiman always says, skin care is self care.

Schedule your next appointment now.

2. Ask your doctor about acne & rosacea treatments. 

There are a variety of treatment options for patients with acne and/or rosacea. Ask your doctor about topical and oral medications, laser treatment, and chemical peels to treat these conditions.

3. Tinted Mineral Sunscreen to Prevent Sun Damage

Tinted sunscreen and reapplication of sunscreen is a crucial step to anyone’s skincare routine. Sunscreen protects us from UV rays that leaves behind unfavorable brown spots and sun damage. Our practice loves Alastin or Tizo tinted mineral sunscreen (links below).

4. Retinol for Anti-Aging

Retinol is a vitamin A derivative that you can obtain over the counter. Retinol is popular for its ability to gently exfoliate the skin promoting skin cell turnover and collagen promotion.

   Benefits of Retinol may include: 

  • Reduced signs of wrinkling & fine lines
  • Reduced hyperpigmentation
  • Reduced acne
  • Even Skin Texture
  • Collagen Stimulation

How to Use Retinol 

We recommend applying retinol at night due to sunlight having an impact on the effectiveness of the product.

-Wash your face with a gentle cleanser to remove the dirt and oils from the day.

-Dry your face completely and apply a pea sized amount all over your face.

-Wait a few minutes to give the retinol time to be absorbed into your skin and then apply a moisturizer to support your skin barrier.
