A Self Care Skincare Routine

If you’re staying home for a day or more, whatever your reason, this is a great opportunity to implement a self care skincare routine. A self care skincare routine is all about taking a break from what you normally do to soothe and rejuvenate. At Advanced Skin and Body Solutions, our mission is to use cutting-edge techniques and the highest level of customer service to help men and women in the Bellevue area look their best, and more importantly, feel their best. In this article, we share tips about at-home skincare along with product recommendations.

skincare routineStarting Your Day

First, if you really don’t have anywhere to be, we say go make-up free. All you have to do when you wake up is use a soothing moisturizer. We like the Rejuvenating Hydrator from Skinmedica because it immediately soothes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and supports the skin’s natural ability to replenish its own hyaluronic acid for overall skin health.

On the other hand, if you’re working from home for the day or planning to pop out for a short errand, you may want to create some normalcy for your day by feeling a little more “made”. Or maybe going totally make-up free feels too naked to you. In any case, you can use a tinted moisturizer to maintain that clean and fresh start in your skincare routine. Just brush your brows, apply some lip gloss, and you’re ready for your “productive time”. (If you’re lucky enough to have expertly microbladed brows, you may not even have to brush them!).

Skincare In The Sun

If you’re going to spend any time in the sun, whether you’re going for a walk or sitting on the balcony, don’t forget to apply SPF as part of your skincare routine. It’s so important to protect your skin from sun damage. SPF will help prevent things like discoloration, fine lines, wrinkles, and more. We treat plenty of people from Bellevue and surrounding areas with laser and other medical grade solutions because they regret the time they spent worshiping the sun without proper protection. We like Skinmedica’s Total Defense + Repair Broad Spectrum Sunscreen because it defends against harmful infrared rays while supporting the skin’s ability to restore itself.

Skincare Before Bed

It’s a good idea to add exfoliation to your self care skincare routine before bed. Your sensitive skin collects dirt and accumulates dead skin over time, even if you’re not wearing make-up. We like Skinmedica’s exfoliating cleanser because it gently scrubs away dirt and dead skin to improve the appearance of tone and texture. “Gently” is a key word here. Don’t scrub too hard, especially at any red or dry spots. If you need deeper exfoliation, the skincare professionals at Advanced Skin and Body Solutions are specially trained to do this during medical grade treatments. At home, you can gently exfoliate once or twice a week.


At Advanced Skin and Body Solutions, Skinmedica is one of our favourite skincare lines. As we referenced in this article, it’s a great product line for your self care skincare routine.
