- Looking Tired? Start With Basic Skincare
The first thing people should do if they want to look more refreshed is to start with the basics, and the basics is good skin care. So go to a dermatologist, go to a plastic surgeon's office, get hooked in with an esthetician and get started on a medical-grade skincare line. Now there is a difference between what you buy at the department store and what you get in a doctor's office; and I describe to my patients the same as if you buy Tylenol for a headache, or if you get a prescription for Vicodin. One is just stronger, more potent and it's going to make more changes. So if you've really got facial aging, if you've got sun-damage, if you've got fine lines and wrinkles, yes you can go to the department store, you can get a nice moisturizer that feels good, that smells good, that moisturizes your skin, but it's not going to actually reverse your aging. For that, you need to use prescription-strength products either from a plastic surgeon or a dermatologist.
