Still searching for the perfect skincare products? You’ll be happy to know Oprah just released her annual Beauty-O-Wards, and there’s something on the list for everyone! Without further ado, here are Queen O’s chosen skincare products to tighten, protect, nourish, and soften—plus a few favorite products of our own!
TURN BACK TIME
One thing most women want is soft, baby smooth skin. After years of seasonal changes, exposure to the elements, and the normal aging process, our skin tends to become less elastic, rougher, and more prone to fine lines and wrinkles.
Oprah’s fave for slowing down aging: StriVectin Advanced Retinol Intensive Night Moisturizer. According to Oprah’s beauty gurus, this moisturizer will repair any damage done to the skin by the harsh summer months. Packed with retinol, the cream builds up collagen levels and minimizes wrinkles.
Our top pick for getting more youthful skin: SkinMedica™ TNS products. The patented TNS blend developed by SkinMedica packs a powerful punch—growth factors, soluble collagen, antioxidants, matrix proteins, and a variety of vitamins all work to improve skin elasticity and skin cell regeneration. After just a few months of use, you’ll notice your skin is firmer, softer, and smoother, with fewer wrinkles to boot!
TO SERVE & PROTECT
It’s a well known fact that the sun is anything but friendly to our skin. Luckily, there are things you can do to not just repair sun damage but also prevent it.
Oprah’s chosen sun product: Philosophy Purity One-Touch Facialist. Oprah reports that this product deep cleans, tightens, and massages the skin follicles, helping to not only strengthen your skin over time, but also protect it from the elements with each and every use.
Our tip: At-home products are great, but you can’t beat an expertly administered facial. Here at the Plastic Surgery Centre of Atlanta, we offer a variety of customizable specialty facials that can address a variety of issues—including spots, fine lines, and uneven skin tone & texture as a result of too much time spent in the sun.
BONUS: A SELF-TANNER THAT WORKS
If you crave that healthy summer glow without the sun damage, there are options. While many of the self-tanners on the market often look unnatural and take weeks to fade, there are a few products that work. Oprah recommends Jergens Natural Glow Tanning Collection, which can provide your skin with a sun kissed look without the dangers associated with tanning. Plus, the products are packed with natural moisturizers that will enrich the skin with vitamins and minerals.
FOR THE BEST RESULTS…
Though Oprah’s beauty tips are great, not all skin is the same—and having a skincare expert evaluate your skin and make personalized recommendations is the best way to ensure you’re giving your skin what it needs to thrive.
Professional skincare treatments and medical-grade skincare products are only available through physicians and the aestheticians under their supervision. Working with a great cosmetic medical practice can help you achieve optimal results safely through well-designed, customized treatments.
If you’re in the Atlanta area, give us a call or fill out our online contact form! We would love to meet with you for a private consultation during which we will evaluate your skin, listen to your concerns, and help you determine the best treatments and products for achieving beautiful, healthy skin.
