Feeling a bit less than luminous lately? Truth be told, of the multitude of ways to make your skin look younger and fresher - many don’t take much more effort in your already daily routine. 

Check out some of these simple skin tips you may not have heard:

Cheap-o lotions work: If you’re in a pinch, any moisturizer with glycerin, shea butter, or another basic hydrator will help your skin. For more frequent use, you’ll still want to go with dermatologist recommended creams that have ingredients designed to boost cell turnover, stimulate collagen grown, and banish DNA-damaging free radicals. 

Remember, the sun is everywhere: Just because you are barely exposed to direct sunlight on your daily commutes doesn’t mean you are protected against photodamage. UVA rays can go through the windows of your office, home, and car! Recent studies have shown the damage that UVA can do to the skin on a daily basis. So don’t risk it, wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen each and every day.

Keep your distance: The sun isn’t the only source of heat damaging to skin. Direct exposure to space heaters and fireplaces (two - three feet) can cause redness and breakdown of collagen. Bundle up and sit at least ten feet away from heat sources!

Drink water, wisely: Water of course is important for your health, and skin. But constantly pursing creates lines and agitates any existing ones around the mouth. Choose to sip water from a glass when you can or opt for a reusable bottle with a spout that you can easily squirt into your mouth. 

It’s not too late to take care of your skin. Plus, with facials and microdermabrasion treatments offered here at Tropicalaser Long Island, you can help regenerate the fibers that make skin look youthful. For smoother, firmer and more even toned skin, contact us to learn about such services. 

 

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.

It’s time for a skin-tervention. You may not always be aware of it, but every day habits can easily have a negative impact on your skin. If you’re guilty of one of the below, time to make some adjustments - fast!

Popping pimples- It’s not uncommon to want to pop pimples but do keep in mind, squeezing them can actually make the infection go deeper! This major backfire can permanently enlarge pores. Can’t resist? Try washing your face with a washcloth - if the pimple is ready to pop, this pressure is all it needs to drain it.

Sleeping with makeup on- Not removing makeup before bed can clog pores and oil glands, resulting in acne. It can also cause premature aging as leaving your makeup on doesn’t let your skin recover from the damage it encountered during the day. 

Not getting enough sleep- Sleep not only benefits our energy levels and metabolism but it also has serious effects on our skin. Sleep helps the body’s hydration rebalance. Beyond those dark, under-eye circles, lack of sleep can also cause skin dryness and visible wrinkles.

Washing your face with the wrong cleansers- Washing your face daily is important - as long as you’re using the correct soap. Those prone to pimples or that have oily skin initially may gravitate to cleansers or exfoliators that dry things out. Makes sense right? Wrong! These actually can strip the skin of all its GOOD oils and protective barrier. Instead go with a nourishing face wash.

 

Feel like the above daily habits have added years to your face? Treatments such as facials and microdermabrasion help regenerate the fibers that make skin look youthful. For smoother, firmer and more even toned skin, contact us to learn about such services. 

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.

We all know you should exfoliate your face but what about the rest of your body? After all, dead skin can build up anywhere. See below for 5 spots you may not be exfoliating - but should:

Lips

Yes we know, your lips are on your face but still they are often forgotten about! Try using a soft toothbrush in a circular motion to get the job done. After exfoliating make sure to apply a thick lip balm to keep your lips hydrated and smooth.

Butt

Many things can lead to pesky ingrowns on your rear - including friction from sitting and working out in tight clothing. Put on some exfoliating bath gloves during your shower and use a gentle cleanser a few times each week.This will loosen up hairs and even out the texture.

Arms

Keratosis pilaris(KP) is the scientific name for the annoying bumps you may have on your upper arms and legs. Unfortunately, your parents are to blame for this one as it is genetic. If you have KP, over exfoliation can leave your arms looking even worse than when you started. Try using exfoliating lotions that contain alpha hydroxy acids. This will help smooth out your skin.

Legs

Every time you shave your legs it’s not uncommon to come across those unfortunate razor bumps. To avoid this, use an exfoliating shave gel and try going with the grain instead of against it.

Heels

Heels often take the worst beating, but routinely exfoliating your feet and heels can prevent painful cracks and skin buildups. Before going to bed, use a urea-based cream on your feet. You can even try wearing a pair of socks over it to make sure you will wake up with your feet feeling smooth.

 

If you’re looking to have glowing skin all year long, check out what Tropicalaser can do for you. From ridding yourself of annoying ingrowns thanks to our laser hair removal services to exfoliating your face with a professional microdermabrasion - we’ve got you covered.

Whether you’re aware or not, plenty of us are sinful where our beauty regimens are concerned. While you may have your routine down to a science, fact is some faux pas may be foiling your efforts. See below for some common bad beauty habits and how to break them:

Sleeping on the Same Side of Your Face. While this may not be entirely in your control, do your best to change up your sleeping positions. Repeatedly snoozing on the same side of your face scrunches up the skin, which can cause fine lines to become permanently etched.

Rubbing Your Eyes. The eye area is the most sensitive area of the face. The more this thin skin is rubbed or pulled, the easier for it to slacken and fine lines to form. So handle with care!

Wearing Too Much Moisturizer. Keeping skin moisturized is important, but too much of it won’t be doing you any favors. Excess cream will be unable to absorb deeply enough into cellular tissue, thus clogging pores.

Drinking Through a Straw. Repeated facial expressions over time, like pursing your lips, can cause fine lines to form around your mouth. Solution? Drink directly from the glass, bottle, or can.

Cleaning Your Face with Hot Water. Hot temps lead to broken capillaries on the face. Capillary walls are super thin and elastic and are very reactive to temperature. Keep the balance - used lukewarm water for your daily cleansing ritual.

If you find yourself committing the above beauty sins it may be time to give your face a reboot. Treatments such as facials and microdermabrasion help regenerate the fibers that make skin look youthful. Take advantage of our Healthy Skin Promotion and get an organic facial and microdermabrasion treatment for just $99 ($250 value) through the end of August!

As much as we welcome the sun and any outdoor activities the summer brings, this season can actually be damaging to your body if you don’t take the proper precautions. See below to learn more about summer aging and what you can do to protect yourself, courtesy of Huffington Post:

The sun can cause photo aging to your skin
The sun’s UVA rays are particularly responsible for causing wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots - by breaking down collagen and other fibers that keep your skin plump and line-free. Stay safe by using an SPF of 15 or higher daily, even if you spend most of your time indoors. Truth is just walking to and from your car on even a cloud day can bring the risk of damaging UV rays.

Air conditioning can dry out skin
Air conditioning works by pulling moisture from the air to chill the room, but this dryness in the air can also dehydrate your skin. Prolonged exposure can even result in itching and flaking. Remedy this by keeping your body hydrated - drink plenty of fluids and be sure to moisturize.

Sun and swimming can damage your hair
Similar to what it does to the skin, sunlight breaks down the fibers in your hair - resulting in more split ends and breakage. Anyone who swims often or has dyed hair also know the damage that pools can cause to their locks. Protect your strands, wear a hat and avoid heat-styling as often as possible.

Squinting in the sun can cause wrinkles around the eyes
Any repeated facial expression can form lines and wrinkles, so stop crow’s feet in their tracks by shielding your eyes. Wear sunglasses with UV protection!

Sun damage can easily drain the skin’s moisture and weaken the collagen and elastin, zapping the skin of its youth and vigor. For smoother, firmer and more even toned skin don’t forget to take advantage of our Healthy Skin Promotion and get an organic facial and microdermabrasion treatment for just $99 ($250 value) through the end of August!

Even healthy skin is no match for nature. Factors such as aging and sun damage can drain the skin's moisture and weaken the collagen and elastin, zapping the skin of its youth and vigor.

Although it is impossible to turn back the hands of time, it is possible to regenerate the fibers that make skin look youthful.

Treatments such as facials and microdermabrasion increase circulation, stimulate cell turn over and promote collagen and elastin formation.  The result is smoother, firmer more even toned skin.

While sunscreen, large brimmed hats, and protective sun gear all help in protecting our skin from the summer sun on the outside - did you know there’s way to protect internally as well? Simply take a trip to your local grocery store! 

The below foods are known to help keep your skin safe from the sun’s harmful rays so be sure to include a variety in your diet this season:

Unheated Olive Oil - This popular oil is high in vitamin E and polyphenols which are both great for your skin. It has been known to reduce photo damage from UVB radiation and a number of recent studies have pointed out its protective benefits of applied topically as well. Sprinkle some olive oil on your salad or pour a little on your already cooked vegetables. Its an easy thing to add to your diet!

Walnuts - Walnuts can help prevent cell breakdown which will help your skin fight UV radiation. So grab a handful or even grind them up and add them to your other foods or smoothies!

Apples - Apples are full of polyphenols which are plant-based compounds that help regulate inflammation and the immune system. Just another reason to eat an apple a day!

Coffee & Tea - Coffee and tea are both antioxidants and are a source of polyphenols. A recent study has shown that consuming these drinks can help protect your skin from hyper-pigmented sunspots, so keep drinking your morning joe (or tea) to boost skin health!

Broccoli - Sulphorane is a compound found in broccoli that activates the skin’s defensive system when you are exposed to UV rays. Broccoli is also the vegetable with the highest count of polyphenols!

Basil - A popular go to kitchen herb - basil actually protects your eyes from UV light by helping filter it from the retina. This is because it contains zeaxanthin which is an antioxidant!

 

Sun damage can easily drain the skin’s moisture and weaken the collagen and elastin, zapping the skin of its youth and vigor. For smoother, firmer and more even toned skin don’t forget to take advantage of our Healthy Skin Promotion and get an organic facial and microdermabrasion treatment for just $99 ($250 value) through the end of August!

While these last few days on Long Island haven’t been very ‘summery,’ we do know sunnier and hotter days will be upon us before we know it - is your skin prepared?

In honor of May being Skin Cancer Awareness Month and Memorial Day Weekend on the horizon, we wanted to share some must have tips for healthy summer skin:

Increase SPF use - Whether you are running errands or taking a short walk on your lunch break, the sun is something to me cautious of. Yes even those short bursts of sunlight can be detrimental to your skin. Protect yourself by adding a healthy layer of face protecting sunscreen to your morning beauty routine.

Choose the right lip product - Similarly to the above, make sure you are applying a lip product with an SPF of at least 15. Choose lip balms over glosses this season as balms tend to stay on your lips longer while hydrating more.

Increase water intake - And drinking water isn’t your only option! Popular summer foods like watermelon, leafy greens, and berries have a higher concentration of water to help you stay hydrated in the heat.

Get physical - In addition to the obvious health benefits, working out is good for the skin. Sweat, your body’s natural response to exercise, helps to regulate body temperature, releases trace amount of toxins, and loosens the dirt in your pores. What more? It increases circulation which in turns improves your skin’s appearance with a health glow.

Really get your skin ready for the new season by taking advantage of one of the many services offered here at Tropicalaser! Our microdermabrasion is ideal for soughing away dry, rough winter skin and our facials help to exfoliate and nourish- promoting a clear, well-hydrated and younger 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.

With wedding season upon us and summer vacations on the horizon, you don't want to regret not wearing that bikini or cocktail dress you've been excited to show off. That’s what we’re here for! It’s not too late to take advantage of one(or more) of the many services we offer here at Tropicalaser to give you an extra boost of confidence this summer:

Microdermabrasion: Sough away your dry, rough winter skin with a professional microdermabrasion treatment. This method of deep exfoliation refines the skin using micro crystals, allowing fresh collagen and cells to form over time.

Facials: A facial is one of the best ways to take care of your skin, especially when it's given by an experienced, knowledgeable esthetician. A facial cleans, exfoliates and nourishes the skin, promoting a clear, well-hydrated complexion, and can help your skin look younger.

Cavi Lipo: Your non-surgical liposuction solution, Cavi-Lipo uses Ultrasound Cavitation to breakdown fat cells. The released fat is then metabolized through the liver and released by natural means. The great thing here is there is absolutely ZERO downtime following the treatment and is effective for all body areas where localized fat deposits or cellulite exists.

Laser Hair Removal: While waxing and shaving may be immediate solutions for short term hair removal, opting for laser hair removal will give you a permanent solution to your unwanted hair.  Our laser hair removal treatments work for any body area and for all skin types.

Even though spring is technically here - Long Island hasn’t been privy to much of the warm weather. So once the temps do start to heat up, your skin will likely be looking for some help in putting its best face forward:

Consider your cleansers. Warmer weather brings humidity, humidity and oil cleansers don’t mix. Time to swap out your products with something more lightweight instead.

Exfoliate. Dry, flaky skin is a popular problem this time of year. Look for an exfoliate that is is gentle and doesn’t inflame the skin.

Brighten up. Liven up a dull complexion with some brightening products! These are a great way to make your skin look fresher and brighter.

Lighten your moisture boost. Much like your oil cleanser, it’s time to swap any oil-based moisturizers for more lightweight options (like silicone and water based moisturizers).

Looking for quicker turn around time on that youthful glow? Consider contacting us for microdermabrasion treatment! Microdermabrasion is a skin-revitalizing treatment that helps repair skin that is damaged from the sun, scars, acne and the unwanted effects of aging.

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.

While you can’t stop time or turn back the clocks for a more youthful look, there are some anti-aging tweaks you can make to your daily routine that have long term benefits:

Skip heat styling - With multiple heat styling tools comes more hair damage and breakage. Limit your flat iron and hair dryer use each week to give your locks a rest. Master the wet bun, utilize dry shampoo, or allow for air drying when the weather warms up.

Apply SPF daily - Rain or shine, SPF is the most effective tool in your anti-aging arsenal. Applying a lotion with SPF 30 to your face, neck, and back of hands will greatly reduce sun damage and wrinkles. 

Eating properly - For hair that looks healthy, consume high-protein foods. For youthful, healthy skin consume foods with high antioxidant content and foods that deliver essential fatty acids. Fiber-rich vegetables are nature’s toothbrushes while lean meats and lentils help you to scorch calories as you chew!

 

Be conscious of habits - Find yourself staring down while texting or scrolling through your phone? Be careful, any movement you repeat over and over promotes wrinkles. To avoid wrinkles that ring your neck be conscious of habits that keep you looking down. On phone calls often? Clean your phone daily and go hands free when possible to avoid facial breakouts. 

 

Looking for quicker turn around time on that youthful glow? Consider contacting us for microdermabrasion treatment! Microdermabrasion is a skin-revitalizing treatment that helps repair skin that is damaged from the sun, scars, acne and the unwanted effects of aging.
