The Importance of Beauty Maintenance

For some people looking good is easy but no matter who you are, looking your best involves putting in work. Whether that means at-home products to beauty salons to spa regimens – staying beautiful can sometimes feel like a full-time job. That said, it doesn’t have to. Here are some tips you can use to make sure you’re always looking great and have time to enjoy all the approving glances.

It Starts with Skin

The number one most important key to looking beautiful is your skin. All the makeup in the world can’t conceal bad skin and great skin can add a shine to anyone’s features. There are countless ointments and treatments and tools available to moisturize, scrub, and smooth your skin and they’re all relatively effective. However to minimize their need you should remember that the biggest key to glowing skin is diet: You need to drink lots of water and eat foods rich in nutrients (especially vegetables). Not only will you look better but a proper diet will ensure you feel better too. Another big benefit can come with regular facials which give you more than the regular benefits of at-home treatments with the additional plus of being pampered.

Keeping Your Hair Gorgeous

Keeping your hair bouncy and healthy can often be a trial by itself, but by washing your hair when it needs it and styling in ways that cater to your face, you’ll find it doesn’t require too much work to keep you looking good. Try not to overdue the product, but know what your hair needs or doesn’t. If you really want it shiny – get the product that can help you do that. Remember to keep the hair off your skin however when you’re not out – it can spread germs that can lead to acne.

Keep Your Makeup Simple

Take the time to find a look that works for you – keep it as natural and as free of products as you possibly can – you don’t want to have to spend too long in front of the mirror. Once you have a daily look it should be easy to put your morning routine on autopilot. Don’t be afraid to switch it up for special occasions and remember to refresh your look regularly. You don’t want to end up wearing your makeup the same way you did in high school when you’re going into your fifties.

Keeping up a beauty regimen can be annoying but it is worth the work in the long run. Knowing you look great, and have taken good care of your skin, will strengthen your confidence and make you feel great too.

How A Skin Care Routine Can Boost Your Self Esteem

How A Skin Care Routine Can Boost Your Self Esteem

We’ve all heard that beauty is only skin deep, but the way you look can impact how you feel about yourself. If you deal with constant breakouts or dry, blotchy skin, it can have an impact on your confidence. When your skin is healthy and glowing, it can have the opposite effect and give you a boost! If you’ve ever wondered how a skincare routine can boost your self-esteem, the team at Dermatology Realm is here to help. Let’s take a look at the benefits of a daily skincare routine and the products that will leave you feeling refreshed!

Why should I implement a skincare routine?

Over the years, psychologists have studied the connection between physical appearance and self-confidence. If you don’t love the way you look, it can cause issues with your confidence, impacting your relationships and daily life. That’s why it’s so important to prioritize your skincare routine! And you should never underestimate the power of a little bit of self-care.

When you have a consistent skincare routine, the results will show on your face. You’ll have glowing skin and look more relaxed, making you appear more attractive to others. Here are a few more reasons to keep up a skincare routine:

Improve the health of your skin

As the largest organ of your body, it’s essential to keep your skin healthy! Our skin protects us from the elements, external toxins, and infection. Cleaning your skin every day is essential to get rid of germs, dead skin, and anything that comes your way throughout the day. Try to bathe before bed so that these substances don’t have the chance to wreak havoc on your body!

Slow down the signs of aging

If you’re in your 20s or 30s, you may not be too concerned about wrinkles or laugh lines. But starting a good skincare routine at a young age can help avoid these signs of aging later on. When you use the right products consistently, you can help your skin maintain the strength and elasticity that keep you looking young.

Self-care is important for your health

We’ve seen the importance of self-care over the past few years, and the increased interest in skincare and health is great! If you’ve had a stressful day (and who hasn’t!), taking some time to relax and reset your mind is beneficial for your mental and physical health. Spending a few minutes in the morning and evening focusing on yourself will give you time to clear your mind and get yourself ready for the day or call it a day.

What products are the best for healthy skin?

Once you know the benefits of maintaining a skincare routine, knowing what to use and when is the next step! There are so many products that it can be tough to know the best moisturizer for your skin type or what SPF to use on a cloudy day. That’s where Dermatology Realm comes in! Here are some of our must-have products and how they can help you get healthier skin and boost your confidence:

Start with a cleanser

Using a good cleanser to start your routine is essential to wash away any dirt and debris built up overnight or throughout the day. Our Memphis office is always stocked with the best cleansers from Obagi, Neostrata, Skin Medica, and Glytone. These products will have different benefits for different skin types, so our team will help you find the perfect fit!

Use an acne treatment

If you deal with acne, salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide treatment will be your next step. These treatments will increase your sensitivity to the sun, so don’t forget your sunscreen (more on that later)!

Retinoid cream

Retinoids are great for preventing wrinkles and fighting acne. These products are powerful, so you’ll only need to apply a pea-sized amount two or three times a week.


Using a great moisturizer is essential for healthy skin! The exact type you’ll need depends on your skin type, any present skin conditions, and your daily life. Some moisturizers are oily, which isn’t ideal for naturally oily skin. Talk to one of the experts at Dermatology Realm to determine what type of skin you have, and we’ll help you find a moisturizer that is perfect for you.


Many people think of sunscreen as a summertime staple, but the best thing you can do for your skin is apply it year-round! The harmful UV rays from the sun can cause severe damage to your skin or even skin cancer. Taking preventative steps like using sunscreen at least 30 SPF every morning, even when you don’t plan on spending a lot of time outside, will help you avoid early signs of aging.

Give your skin a little extra boost

Once you have a consistent skincare routine, there are a few things you can do to give your skin that little extra glow. Here at Dermatology Realm, we offer a few different treatment options to help you feel your best!

Dermatology-focused facials

These specialized facials can address anything from dry skin to redness and will leave you feeling refreshed.


This treatment renews your skin cells, giving you a glowing and radiant complexion. We use a diamond abrasion technique to allow deep exfoliation to remove a dead layer of skin and reveal a soft and supple layer of healthy skin.

Melanage peel

If you have an uneven skin tone, deep pigment issues, or melasma, the Melanage Skin Brightening System can improve the look and feel of hyperpigmented skin. Melanage is a superficial that uses a medicated mask and at-home skincare regimen.

Visit Dermatology Realm and find your perfect skincare routine

When it comes to finding your perfect skincare routine, always remember that less is more! You don’t have to lather your skin with products that don’t meet your unique needs. If you’ve been struggling to find a routine that leaves you feeling fresh and glowing, we would love to help.

Contact our Germantown office to schedule an appointment, and we’ll help you find the products that make your skin feel better than ever. We can’t wait to meet you!
