6 Tips to Keep Your Skin Glowing Year Round

Between the dryness of winter and the extra sun exposure of summer, keeping your skin healthy and radiant all year long is a challenge. And that’s not to mention the toll the years take on your skin as they pass. Fortunately, you can make some changes to help keep your skin happy and healthy month after month and year after year. 

We’re here to help, too. At Dr. McKenna’s Orthopedics and Biologics in Trophy Club and Dallas, Texas, Dr. Wade McKenna and our dedicated team offer top-tier skin-rejuvenation treatments that penetrate into the deeper layers of your skin to give you transformative results. Pair those treatments (more on them below) with these other easy-to-implement changes and your skin will look radiant. 

1. Drink a lot of water

The key to glowing skin? Moisture. It’s no surprise that if you’re dehydrated your skin isn’t going to look its best. Drink water throughout the day. If you’re not sure how much water you need, divide your body weight (in pounds) in half. Experts estimate that’s the number of ounces you should be drinking daily. 

2. Re-surFACE your skin

If your skin looks dull and uneven, don’t wait to ask Dr. McKenna about the surFACE treatment we offer at our office. During this treatment, he injects growth factors and metabolically active tissues into your skin, flooding it with what it needs to rejuvenate itself. As the treatment goes to work, you get more even skin, plus fewer fine lines and wrinkles and smaller pores. 

3. Protect your skin from the sun

With summer right around the corner, remember to be sun safe by using sunscreen daily. Not only does this help you avoid issues like sun spots and skin cancer down the road, but it also keeps your skin at its healthiest now. 

4. Replenish it with PRP

Dr. McKenna offers a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facelift at Dr. McKenna’s Orthopedics and Biologics. As this treatment firms and plumps your skin, it also helps facilitate replenishment of collagen and new skin cells, giving you an all-over glow. 

5. Exfoliate regularly

Dead skin cells on the surface of your skin could be to blame for your dull complexion. Fortunately, you can get rid of those cells with exfoliation. Exfoliate regularly to keep your skin looking fresh and radiant.  

6. Eat healthy

Eating a nutrient-rich diet gives your body, including your skin, what it needs to thrive. As your body’s largest organ, your skin feels the effects of your dietary choices. Choose plenty of vitamin-and-antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats, and steer clear of sugar. 

You don’t have to figure out how to get glowing skin on your own. Our expert team loves helping patients like you achieve their skin goals. To get started, call the office that’s nearest you or schedule your appointment with our online booking tool.
