Note: At-home peels are another effective path to smoother, more even-toned skin and generally contain up to 30 percent glycolic acid, whereas a dermatologist can use up to 70 percent concentrations for more dramatic results.

3 Be prepared to put in a little work on the front end. It usually takes three to six weeks to see results, says Casey Gallagher, a dermatologist in Boulder, Colorado. But the radiant results are worth it. Here s what to do. Stick to gentle cleansers. Use a nonsoap product (like Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser) morning and night to wash away grime without irritating skin. Smooth skin. In the morning, apply a lotion that contains alpha hydroxy acids to slough off dead skin cells. Even out your skin tone. If you have dark pigmentation spots, ask your dermatologist for a prescription-strength skin lightener (which usually contains hydroquinone). Or try an over-the-counter lightener with hydroquinone. Products with vitamin C or licorice extract may help, too. Get your antioxidants. Look for a free-radical fighter, like vitamin C, or promising ones, like coffeeberry and in your day or night cream. Antioxidants protect skin from sun damage and help refine its tone. Use an over-the-counter retinol or a prescription-strength retinoid at bedtime. These products encourage cell turnover and collagen production. Begin by applying a pea-size amount every other night, as retinoids can be irritating at first.
4 1. Use a Toner. After you cleanse your skin, making use of a toner is suggested. If you apply moisturizer and other products to dewy skin, they are more likely to latch on and act faster. Not only does toner bond products to your skin, but it evens the skins tone. Oily skin and clogged pores are among two types that could possibly benefit the most from using a toner. Be careful when choosing a toner though, there are multiple different varieties of which a few can be harmful or too drying to your skin type.

15 Coconut Oil Secrets for Beautiful, Glowing Skin! The skin is the singular organ that is exposed to the most abrasive conditions of any other organ. However, when we treat our skin, we often don t take this into consideration. The constant elements to which we expose our skin paired with our skin s natural tendency toward reactions create an ideal climate for disaster. An effective skin treatment regimen can help, though, and coconut oil is just the substance to use. Skin disorders are quite common yet quite diverse. Issues with the skin range from mere skin sensitivity to psoriasis, rosacea, eczema, and a variety of others. The common thread that links these conditions seems to be the underlying irritation and dryness of the skin. While skin creams, prescription medications, and other mainstream treatments may offer temporary relief, that is all they offer - a temporary fix. These treatments don t actually heal the underlying cause of the condition, so it continues to reoccur. Coconut Oil for Skin Conditions Coconut oil is different than traditional treatments. Known as one of the modern curealls, coconut oil is effective for eliminating the underlying irritation to actually remedy the skin disorder and correct the issue altogether. How coconut oil works: Coconut oil is a natural antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory agent. Applied to the skin, this agent penetrates into the deep layers of tissue eradicating any underlying infection that is contributing to the skin condition. Likewise, the oil can be used internally with the same effect. Coconut oil is also a particularly effective skin conditioner, so it naturally eliminates dryness and irritation. How to use coconut oil for beautiful skin: For best results, you should consider using coconut oil internally and externally. Take a tablespoon daily by mouth either by itself or mixed in coffee or tea. Likewise, use coconut oil as a lotion on the affected skin areas as needed throughout the day to eliminate dryness and restore the resiliency of the skin.
