Winter is not a girl’s best friend, which is why giving your skin a little extra TLC is essential. Here are 10 tips we recommend to help you get a radiant winter’s glow:

1. Wash with lukewarm water as this will avoid the stripping of your natural oils.
2. Moisturize immediately after bathing. It needs this especially after washing up.
3. Choose the right moisturizer - one that is nourishing and doesn’t have petroleum based ingredients (which can further dry your skin in winter).
4. Install a humidifier in your home to put even more moisture back into your skin while you’re sleeping.
5. Drink more water instead of hot cocoa because your skin needs extra hydration from the inside, out.
6. Exfoliate to eliminate dead cells, especially on our hands. Find an exfoliating mask you can use on both your hands and face and moisturize immediately afterwards.
7. Switch up your cleanser for a more hydrating version that contains moisturizing ingredients.
8. Eat foods high in water. Winter makes us want to turn to comfort foods, but opting for apples, oranges, tomatoes, and zucchini can support the healthy production of collagen and elastin.
9. Avoid toxins and irritants such as wool and chemical-laden detergents, which can bother sensitive skin.
10. Try making a DIY hydrating mask using ingredients such as avocado, honey, yogurt, olive, and jojoba oil.

Don’t forget to pamper yourself with one of Tropicalaser’s organic hydrating facials! All signs of roughness and  winter dryness will be smoothed away to leave a polished and glowing complexion. We service Garden City, Great Neck, and surrounding areas. Give us a call at (516) 307-1543 to schedule your FREE consultation with an experienced Tropicalaser practitioner.

Let’s just admit it: winter isn’t our skin’s best friend. 

By now, you might be happy that  your air isn’t frizzing up, but what about your skin? For most of us, winter means cracked hands, scaly legs, and dry cheeks. What you need to combat the lack of moisture is a new beauty routine. Grab these 7 basic skin care products to help you feel better in your skin:

1. Moisturizer: You will need to moisturize - a lot more than you did over the summer. First, find out your specific skin type, whether you’re dry or oily/dry combination.Apply within a few minutes of bathing to help trap the moisture. 

2. Vaseline: Vaseline will be your new best friend. This petroleum jelly-based product can be used for anything from a lip balm to a foot cream. It also moistens your feed, elbows, and knees.

3. Aquaphor: Aquaphor isn’t much different than Vaseline. It’s like your secret ingredient to skin care therapy, especially for dry under-eye patches. 

4. Humidifier: A humidifier might take up more space in your bedroom, but for what it’s worth, a humidifier can hyper-hydrate your skin while you sleep and prevent that pesky, itchy outer layer. 

5. Warm Water: Taking a hot shower is tempting when the temps outside are freezing, but before you turn that handle, let’s get one fact straight: hot water removes the natural oils from your skin, removing natural oils and making your skin even more dry. If you’re willing to sacrifice your beautiful, healthy skin go for hot, but if you’re looking to avoid looking scaly, then warm water it is!

6. Cream Cleanser: Just before bed and in the morning, you’ll need a creamy cleanser to moisturize the skin, remove your makeup, and avoid irritating your skin at the same time. 

7. Toothbrush: A toothbrush will be your guide to soft, luscious lips this winter. Why? Because scraping off excess skin with bristles is a friendly cure for your chapped lips.

Looking for more winter skincare tips and treatments? Turn to Tropicalaser.  We offer a wide variety of facials such as our Pear & Poppy Seed Polishing Facial, designed to return clarify and luminosity to the skin as dead cells are exfoliated. In the end, all signs of roughness and dryness will be smoothed away to leave a polished and glowing complexion. We service Garden City, Great Neck, and surrounding areas.

As Summer turns to Fall, it’s necessary to adopt a new skincare regime. We like to think of it as tweaking your daily beauty routine. These small changes in the end can do wonders for the skin, especially when dry winters come around. If you’re unsure how to make this simple change, follow our quick guideline below:

Cleansers - Never hit the pillow without cleansing your skin. Makeup and all that junk you apply to your face, neck, and chest can clog pores and cause premature aging and breakouts. To improve the feel and appearance of your skin, use warm water to loosen dirt and clogged pores. Then, apply a dime-sized amount of your favorite cleanser (depending on your skin type). Gently massage away all that dirt and rinse with lukewarm water. Speaking of skin types: remember that cream cleansers are best for dry skin and gel formulas are more suited for oily complexions.

Exfoliators - We’re always big advocates on exfoliation, but if you want a healthy glow in dry winters, a facial scrub is a must-have skincare item. Not only do they help speed up skin cell production, but they also help clear away old skin cells. Not to mention, they unclog pores. Look for an exfoliator made from natural fruit enzymes - one that will dissolve dead skin cells without microbeads. Exfoliate about once or twice a week depending on how your skin type (dry skin needs once a week while oily combination skin needs three or four).

Moisturizer - Moisturizer is a year-round beauty essential, but finding the right one for fall and winter is the trick. Remember: you always need a base of SPF to protect your skin against UVA and UVB rays. The air in winter is dry, so treat your skin accordingly - mainly by purchasing the right formula and applying twice daily. In the morning, rinse using a slightly lighter formula. Before bedtime, use a richer formula - one that contains collagen, elastin, and essential lipids to refresh your face and slow the aging process overtime.  

We’re loving this list of other skincare essentials from Health Magazine!

In the end, all signs of roughness and dryness will be smoothed away to leave a polished and glowing complexion.

It’s no secret that warmer, more humid temperatures can cause more acne prone individuals to breakout in the midst of summer. Switch up your skincare routine to help fight acne and put your best face forward. 

Clean Deep

The hot, humid weather can cause your oil glands to kick in big time, which ultimately leads to clogged pores. Beat it with a cleansing brush that can get deep into your skin - more so than your soaped up fingers can. 

Apply Toner

Got ultimate oily skin? Use a toner. Tab a bit on in the morning and at night using a cotton pad. Gently apply to the forehead, nose, cheeks, and chin. Don’t forget the neck and chest area! This method in conjunction with deep cleansing will fight pimples. 

Treat Breakouts Immediately

When you see a pimple, don’t wait! Treat it with a thin layer of benzoyl peroxide spot treatment before bed and allow it to work overnight. The treatment will kill bacteria that causes zits to grow in the most unwanted places.

If these three tips just aren’t doing the trick for your skin, then pamper yourself with organic facial treatments from Tropicalaser of Long Island! A facial cleans, exfoliates and nourishes the skin, promoting a clear, well-hydrated complexion, and can help your skin look younger.

Ever have those mornings where you wake up and just don’t feel beautiful? It doesn’t matter if you’re wearing a new outfit or hair style, or if someone pays you a compliment - some days don't feel on your side regardless. Perhaps this occurs more often than you’d like to admit. Don’t worry, it’s completely normal.

You’re not born with confidence - no one is. Feeling good in your skin takes practice and patience. It takes a yearning desire to grow. If we take everyone else out of the equation, we realize one thing: that happiness stems from the deepest part of ourselves, and nobody else. Here are some ways you can practice and become more comfortable with yourself:

Don’t take it personally
Don’t let your ego get the best of you. The truth is, you care way more than anybody else does. You’ve heard the saying, “You are your biggest critic". So remember that - you trip and fall, people forget; you get called an ugly name, that’s someone else's insecurity. Don’t let it defeat your confidence; don’t let it get you down. If it’s not you someone is judging, it’ll be someone else.

Repeat Positive Affirmations
Affirmations are what take us from self-conscious to confident, but it doesn’t happen overnight. Remind yourself day in and day out what you hope to accomplish. Do you want to feel more beautiful? Do you want that job promotion? Do you want to find divine love? Whatever thoughts you set in motion ultimately become reality when you repeat it to yourself often enough. This is karma: putting positive thoughts out in the universe and letting them return when the time is right.

Take care of your body
Whether that means staying active, maintaining a healthy diet, or both, taking good care of your body inside and out can make you feel incredibly more confident. Take small steps before you learn to take bigger ones. When you start to nourish your body, you begin to grow a healthier relationship with yourself. So pamper yourself - take a warm bath, schedule a facial, fill your pantry with healthy snacks.

At Tropicalaser, we believe that pampering yourself and taking good care of your body is all part of the process! That is why we offer several treatments including laser hair removal, cavi lipo, and organic facials.

Call today for a free consultation at 516.307.1543 or visit our website for more information. We offer treatments to patients on Long Island at our Garden City location, 825 East Gate Blvd., Suite #104.

Feeling cursed with facial redness this winter? When the weather becomes dry as it is, it’s only natural that your skin will turn dry and flushed. In fact, many of us suffer from dry skin and redness during the cooler months. But luckily, there are a few simple remedies that can neutralize the skin’s pigmentation:

Masks - Although there’s no scientific evidence to prove facial masks are beneficial for the skin, it’s been a well-known remedy for hundreds of years. Those containing ingredients, such as cucumber and oatmeal have been a popular cure for redness. For cucumber, be sure to use it straight from the fridge, and for oatmeal, try pulverized oats.

Diet - Tea such as chamomile and green tea contain skin cell rejuvenating properties, so be sure to add a few cups into your diet. It also helps to shy away from spicy foods and drinks that are especially hot. Substitute these with fish oil supplements and probiotics. And don’t forget to eat plenty of natural foods, like fruits and vegetables that contain vitamin E.

Facials - Facials have been proven to improve skin tone and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Whether it be cranberry pomegranate or chocolate mousse, there are plenty of facial treatments that can hydrate your skin and return your pigmentation to normalcy.

If you find that home remedies aren’t curing your facial redness, turn to Tropicalaser of Long Island to give your skin a nourishing and cleansing boost. A facial cleans, exfoliates and nourishes the skin, promoting a clear, well-hydrated complexion, and can help your skin look younger.

Oily skin not only makes your face shiny and greasy looking, it can also increase your risk of acne and clogged pores. But just like with any other skin types, there are some things you can do to reduce skin problems. 

Stylecraze has helped us round up some ways to keep your skin's oil production in control:

  • Say YES to cleansing. By keeping your skin clean helps prevent dirt buildup. Opt for gel-based or foaming cleansers if you have oily skin as well as those that are oil free. 
  • Scrubbing is GOOD! By exfoliating once or twice a week, you can reduce the amount of dead skin cells and renew your skin’s surface.
  • WEEKLY face masks are effective. Adding a weekly face mask to your skin routine can help absorb all the excess oils.
  • Use ALCOHOL-FREE toner. Toning daily will help both eliminate excess oil and get rid of dirt on your skin.
  • DO NOT skip moisturizer. Oily skin needs hydration and moisturizing, and by stripping that will only encourage the production of oil. Look for water-based/oil-free moisturizers. 
  • ALWAYS wear sunscreen. Gel-based sunscreen will leave your face matte and help fight the good fight against brown spots, pigmentation, and freckles. 

Throughout the day, you may always want to keep some translucent powder handy to control oil. Oil blotting sheets are also a good backup! 

Feel like the above tips aren’t helping? Ask us about our skin care services to see which is best for you.
