Dermatologist-Recommended Remedies for How to Get Smooth Skin

Posted on: May 31st, 2023 by Brian Ecclefield

The myriad of skincare products and treatments available may make it challenging for consumers to navigate the best approach to skincare. The first step is to always use products that have undergone FDA-approved, third party laboratory testing for skincare. To that end, there are additional remedies for how to get smooth skin that everyday individuals may find helpful. These dermatologist-recommended remedies may help reduce the appearance of skin conditions related to acne, cellulite, and more.

Non Comedogenic Facial Cleanser

A crucial step towards smooth skin is maintaining a clean face. Dermatologists recommend twice-daily cleansing of the face to remove dirt, oil, and makeup that can clog pores and lead to breakouts. Opt for a gentle cleanser that effectively cleanses without stripping the skin of its natural oils. It is advisable to avoid hot water, as it can dry out the skin.

Regular Exfoliation

Exfoliating the skin on a semi-regular basis (i.e., once or twice a week) may help remove dead skin cells that could contribute to a dull and rough appearance. Dermatologists recommend utilizing a chemical exfoliant with active ingredients such as glycolic acid or salicylic acid, to avoid causing damage to the skin. Individuals are cautioned not to over-exfoliate, as this can result in irritation and redness.

Daily Moisturization

Moisturizing with a non comedogenic moisturizer on a daily basis is generally agreed-upon as essential for maintaining smooth skin. Moisturization helps keep skin hydrated, preventing dryness, fine lines, and wrinkles. Dermatologists advise selecting a moisturizer based on skin type and applying it immediately after cleansing.

Sun Protection

Protecting skin from sun damage may help prevent premature aging, wrinkles, sunspots, and even skin cancer. Dermatologists recommend using a broad-spectrum sunscreen every day, regardless of whether it is cloudy or sunny. Reapply sunscreen every two hours, especially when spending time outdoors.

Balanced Diet

Diet can significantly impact the health and appearance of one’s skin. Dermatologists advocate for a well-balanced diet that includes ample fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats. Equally important is to avoid foods high in sugar and processed ingredients, as doing so may help reduce inflammation and breakouts.

Adequate Hydration

Maintaining proper hydration is vital for keeping skin supple and healthy-looking. Dermatologists advise drinking at least eight glasses of water per day to promote smooth and hydrated skin.

Sufficient Sleep

Adequate sleep promotes the regeneration of healthy skin cells. The skin undergoes a reparative process and produces collagen, which contributes to its firmness and smoothness. Dermatologists recommend aiming for a minimum of seven hours of sleep each night to promote healthy skin.

Utilization of Topical Collagen Products

Natural collagen production decreases with age, leading to wrinkles, sagging skin, and loss of elasticity. To combat these effects, certain skincare products that contain collagen may help reduce the appearance of unevenness in both skin tone and skin texture. Additionally, certain collagen-based creams, serums, and masks may effectively hydrate the skin and improve elasticity, diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. All skincare products making claims to smooth out skin and improve the appearance of skin must have undergone FDA-approved, third-party laboratory testing.

Validating Smooth Skin Claims

All over the counter skincare and cosmetic products that claim to improve the appearance of skin by making it smoother must undergo a series of claim support validation techniques. Validated Claim Support substantiates consumer product testing claims for better consumer protection and brand integrity.
