Your Skin Care Regime: Order Matters

When it comes to skin care, one size definitely doesn’t fit all. Some people can get away with lathering a bit of bar soap and splashing warm water on their face each morning. Others, however, have lined their bathroom counter with skin care products they use (or intend to use) each night and morning. Only a dermatologist, such as Olansky Dermatology Associates, can help you determine what you can and can not get away with when it comes to your skin. There is still a good majority of people that may think skipping a cream or lotion is fine, while in reality their skin is thirsty for moisture.

If you are someone who uses multiple products in your skin care regime, it is important to know that the order in which you apply them does in fact matter. Using your products incorrectly can be sabotaging the youthful and healthy result you are trying to achieve. Dermatologists recommend using the following sequence to get the most out of your skin care products:

Step 1 Washing.
A gentle cleanser and a pat dry is all you need here.
Step 2 Treatment.
Now is the time to apply any medicine or dermatologist recommended treatments on your skin. Make sure to be extra gentle around your eyes where you skin is the weakest.
Step 3 Moisturizer.
Apply an adequate amount of moisturizing cream or lotion before bed. If you are following a morning routine, it is highly important that your moisturizer include sunscreen. Using a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 (which blocks 97% of the sun’s rays) is what the American Academy of Dermatology recommends.
Step 4 Make-Up.
Lastly, apply a make-up that accomplishes what you want but is light enough to let your facial skin breathe. If you have sensitive skin, ask your dermatologist for make-up suggestions that do not cause break outs.

Sounds simple enough, right? Just remember that using too many products can actually cause more irritation and be counter productive. For instance, too many anti-aging products applied at one time can result in a more visible appearance of the signs of aging. Olansky Dermatology Associates is here for you to help you understand your specific skin care needs and what your daily regime should include for achieving the youthful, healthy glow you deserve.

The doctors and PA’s are great and very knowledgeable. I never have to wait to long and the office staff is always very nice. I also take my son there and they are great with him as well. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology.

Kristen R.

Olansky Dermatology is wonderful! Our whole family goes. My daughter has had terrible eczema through the years and both my kids had mollescum too. They always make things better and spend time explaining whats wrong and how to fix it.

Mike D.

I recently had a couple appointments at Olanksy Dermatology and was seen by Julia Lee. Julie was excellent and quickly took care of the issue I was having with my skin. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology and especially Julia Lee to anyone in need of a dermatologist.

Very kind and understanding people. Dr. Bellamy and her nurse took the time to listen to all my concerns and never made me feel rushed.

Kishan P.

I was actually running a bit late, but they were very friendly and knowledgeable about what was going on with my skin. And also very timely.I will definitely stick with them!

Khol S.

Very professional and pleasant staff. When I arrived at my appointment this afternoon I was informed that my doctor called out sick and they tried calling to let me know but I just recently changed my number so they were unable to reach me. The receptionist was so sweet and helpful. Instead of leaving and making a new appointment they fit me in without an issue and without any waiting.

Susan H.

Dr. Ilyas was highly recommended to me so I decided to change dermatologists. I am so glad as I am pleased with his expertise and his highly professional manner. I am also delighted with Emily Raville, Aesthetician. She does a wonderful job and I am recommending her to my friends as well. I am completely satisfied – can’t get any better than that!

Lindsay S.

I have been going to Olansky Dematology for many years now, whether for a specific problem, or just for a really great deep facial, and I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. Every single staff member is knowledgeable and professional. The customer service I receive every visit leaves a positive and lasting impression. I always feel comfortable and at ease while I am there. Great staff!

Janet R.

I seem to live at this place! Whether it’s for an appointment with a doctor or for an aesthetic treatment, I am there frequently. I cannot say enough good things. Efficient, friendly, the best doctors, and a new aesthetic center with the latest in procedures and products to keep us looking almost as young as we feel. It’s always fun to see Emily and she knows just what to recommend.
