Pairing a Healthy Lifestyle with ZO Skin Care Systems
When you think of skin care, you probably think of anti-wrinkle creams, face washes, or even sunscreen. However, these are not the only tools you have at your disposal to help keep your skin youthful, fresh, and glowing. Healthy skin involves a comprehensive skincare regimen including taking care of your health, taking care of your skin externally, and seeking additional help when needed. Your skin does not have to be dull and dry; it can be youthful, fresh, and beautiful.
A Healthy Lifestyle
The basis of any skin care regimen is general good health. First off, drinking enough water is essential to overall health and well being. The second step is eating a healthy, balanced diet of whole foods, with plenty of fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats. Third, enough exercise will improve circulation, help you sleep, and improve your health overall. Sleep deprivation can contribute to accelerated aging and poor skin quality. Finally, avoiding unhealthy habits like smoking and excessive drinking will help your skin stay beautiful for years to come. Smoking constricts blood vessels and inhibits circulation, which deprives skin of oxygen. Smoking can age skin rapidly, and the results are not clear immediately.
These are simple steps, but they can be very difficult to maintain and do require effort and focus. Fortunately, these basic skin care steps are only the foundation to a comprehensive skin care routine. You should continue to use sunscreen and take care of your skin with the right moisturizers and products.
Nutrients that Can Help:
Here are some vitamins and minerals to incorporate into your diet to help keep your complexion flawless, smooth, and dewy. While most of these are easy to come by in healthy food, the key is simply being aware of them and making an effort to include them.
- Antioxidants (such as lycopene)
- Vitamin E
- Omega 3s
- Niacin (a B vitamin)
- Vitamin C
- Beta Carotene
- Vitamin A
Prescription Skin Care Systems
If your skin is having trouble healing damage on its own, you may need to consider a more in-depth skin care product. While some over-the-counter skin products might help slightly, for real results, a prescription skin care system is much more effective. These prescription systems can help with signs of aging, sun damage, pigmentation issues, wrinkles, and more. Board certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Stuart Bentkover prescribes Obagi skin care products to his patients, including the new skin care system line, ZO. Dr. Bentkover is very excited to offer this option to his patients, as it improves upon the original Obagi line of products.
ZO is a comprehensive skin care system that includes several components, including internal and external treatments. These products are customizable, and you will be prescribed them depending on your needs. The new line of ZO products is suitable for all skin types, and Dr. Bentkover’s patients have been very pleased with the results so far. The safety and efficacy of ZO products are extremely high, and the products are a perfect way to try a more substantial skin treatment without surgery or lasers.
