With all of the conflicting skin care information out there, it is easy to get led astray when it comes to the who, what, when, where, and hows of having radiant, timeless skin. And it’s even harder to discriminate what top issues to pay attention, particularly when your skin is in an unhealthy state, or you’re facing skin concerns like acne, sensitivity, and/or signs of premature aging.
We've decided to break it down for you here at Mikel Kristi, and give you the inside scoop on the top 3 things to pay attention to when considering your skincare needs. Lucky for all of us, these basic skincare needs are exactly the same for everyone, no matter what skin type or condition you are labeled with. Of course, how you go about addressing these needs may differ slightly, but the core principles that lead to healthy skin function are the exact same.
We put this need at the top of the list for a number of reasons. First, it seems to be the least exciting step in a skincare routine, but a vital one nonetheless. In our award winning medical aesthetics clinic, we’re constantly pushing our patients to adhere to this number one rule, USE SUN PROTECTION EVERY DAY! It doesn’t matter how much work you put into your skin with lasers, injections, or meticulous skincare, if you are not protecting your skin from the sun’s rays ON A DAILY BASIS, you are doing your whole body a disservice.
As we age, the cellular turnover in our whole body slows down. We can see the evidence of this on our skin, every day. The tell-tale signs that your skin needs to amp up its vital process are;
A note about need #1...
When you have the cell turnover of a younger person, it means you have the environmental vulnerability of a younger person too. This means sunblock is a MUST when using products containing Vitamin A, or that stimulate rapid cell turnover. You wouldn't put a baby in the sun with no protection, right? Then why put your baby cells out in the world unprotected?
Last, but certainly not least, is the ever important issue of collagen production. This issue isn’t just for those who want to get a jump on their anti-aging routine.
So there are your top steps to creating healthy, luminous skin at any age, and with any skin condition. By attending to the essential skin trifecta of sun protection, cellular turnover, and collagen production everyday, you can walk into the world knowing your skin health is covered in three easy steps!
At Mikel Kristi we don't refer to your skin as having "skin types," everyone's skin has the same three basic needs;
Cell Turnover, Collagen Stimulation, and Sun Protection.

Aging is an interesting journey of trials, tribulations, and jubilations that bring with them growth and wisdom, along with wrinkles. What if you could age as you wish, and enjoy the sageness that comes with growing older, without all of fine lines and saggy skin? The secret here is to start when you’re young. But don’t worry, if you are starting later in life there’s still hope.
