3 Tips for Improving Your Skin Health

Young woman with healthy glowing skin

The skincare professionals at our Asheville medical spa love all things wellness and beauty. Today, we’re diving into a topic that’s fundamental to all of the aesthetic treatments we offer: improving skin health. Whether you’re a skincare newbie or a connoisseur, these tips can help add an extra sparkle to your skincare routine. 

1. You are what you eat: Nourish your skin from the inside out

Diet plays a pivotal role in skin health, and incorporating certain foods can be a game-changer for your complexion. Here are just a few skin-friendly options to add to your grocery list:

  • Berries: Rich in antioxidants, berries like blueberries and strawberries fight free radicals, reducing skin aging and promoting a youthful glow.
  • Lean fish: Fish such as salmon and mackerel contain omega-3 fatty acids, which reduce inflammation and help keep skin conditions like acne and psoriasis at bay.
  • Citrus fruits and leafy greens: These are packed with Vitamin C and boost collagen production to help your skin stay firmer for longer.
  • Water: Don’t forget good old H2O! Staying hydrated is crucial for flushing out toxins and maintaining skin elasticity for the long-term health of your skin (and body!). 

2. Get moving to get glowing 

Did you know that breaking a sweat can actually lead to breaking out… in radiance? Exercise isn’t just great for your body; it’s a win-win for your skin too. Here’s more about the link between activity levels and skin health:

  • Boosted blood flow: Regular exercise enhances circulation, helping your skin cells get the nutrients they need.
  • Sweat out impurities: Sweating helps clear out the pores, reducing acne and giving you that clean, fresh-faced look. Just make sure you wash your face right after your workout so those germs aren’t left on your skin!
  • De-stress: Exercise reduces stress, and less stress means fewer breakouts and better health and wellness in general. 

3. Get a little help from the pros

While home care is crucial, your skin deserves some professional TLC from time to time! Here are our favorite treatments, which are scientifically proven to promote the health and appearance of your skin:


Hydrafacial is a multi-step treatment that cleanses, exfoliates, and infuses the skin with nourishing serums. You’ll see and feel an immediate improvement in brightness and hydration—it’s like a spa day for your face, leaving you with hydrated, plump skin. 

We personalize each Hydrafacial to target your specific skin concerns and offer medical-grade skin boosters to maximize your skin’s health and beauty.

A newer addition to the skin rejuvenation family, Skinvive™ uses several tiny injections to place a hydrating gel just under the skin’s surface to help your skin attract and maintain moisture. Once the gel is fully absorbed, you’ll see enhanced skin hydration and improved skin texture in treated areas. 

Chemical peels

Chemical peels remove the dull, damaged surface layer of the skin to reveal refreshed skin underneath and promote new cell growth. The strength of each peel is personalized based on your needs to maximize your results with minimal downtime, tackling everything from acne scars and age spots to smoothing uneven skin texture.

ProCell Microchanneling

Microchanneling creates controlled damage to the skin’s surface, stimulating collagen production to improve a range of skin concerns including, acne, discoloration, fine lines, scars, and the appearance of large pores. 

Medical-grade skincare

Using high-quality skincare products at home is your daily defense against breakouts and helps slow signs of aging. Professional skincare products, like SkinMedica®, contain higher concentrations of active ingredients than drugstore brands, giving you more bang for your buck and providing stronger improvements in skin health! 

Incorporating any of these treatments and products into your skincare regimen can help correct existing skin concerns and prevent new skin woes from developing, but remember, it’s essential to consult with knowledgeable and experienced professionals to tailor treatments to your unique skin needs.
