Having a skincare routine is beneficial, as each step has a very important role for the skin. As the holidays are approaching, proper care is essential, and the colder season comes with some challenges. The problem is that more than half the people do not change their skincare routine during winter, which may cause their skin to look dull and dry. 

The holidays represent the best time for men and women all over the world to try the CHEER method. The perfect gift would be to defend the ultimate protective barrier of the body. It needs to be “cheered on,” and this blog will show how it should be done.

What Is the CHEER Method?

The CHEER method is a skincare regimen that aims to cleanse and rejuvenate the skin. It is also the foundation of every skincare treatment provided by Dermacare Medical Aesthetics. The basic principles of the CHEER method include the following:

  • Cleanse
  • Hydrate
  • Eliminate sun
  • Eliminate discoloration
  • Rejuvenate

The “CHEER” method is a celebration for the skin that can potentially reduce imperfections over time. A variety of skincare products can be used to accomplish this, including cleansers, moisturizers, sunblocks, serums, lotions, and creams. Dermacare Medical Aesthetics providers will choose the products based on the skin type, but each condition may require a different approach.

How to Implement the CHEER Method

The CHEER method has a few set steps that should be followed: 

1. Cleansing

To prevent the skin from feeling dull or developing acne, it needs to be cleaned properly. Cleansing washes off the dead skin cells and dirt from the face and pores, preventing them from clogging and reducing the chances of breakouts in the future. Our Green Tea Cleanser is great for delicate cleansing, while our AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser and 10% Glycolic Moisturizing Cleanser provide gentle exfoliation, leaving behind a smoother and brighter complexion.

2. Hydration

Hydration is a very important step of the CHEER process, especially as the holiday season is approaching. During the winter, the air becomes very dry, making it very harsh on the skin. So, it’s crucial to invest in a good moisturizer and other moisture-retaining products. For instance, the Extra Strength Hydrating Serum can help the skin regain its plumpness, reducing wrinkles and fine lines. We also recommend the Heavy Weight Moisturizer for dry skin and the Feather Weight Moisturizer for normal to combination skin.

3. Eliminating Sun

The sun can cause atrophy in the skin, which is why UV exposure must be reduced as much as possible. Even if it is winter, the sun can still lead to some damage, so it’s important to use good sunblock. 

Our Tinted Face & Body SPF is a broad-spectrum sunscreen that works for all skin types. We also have the Ultra Sheer Mineral Sunscreen made especially for acne-prone skin since it includes various antioxidants (Green Tea Polyphenols, Vitamin C, Resveratrol, etc.) and 12 percent Micronized Zinc Oxide. For simple and immediate application throughout the day (even over makeup), we stand by our Colorescience® Sunforgettable Brush.

4. Eliminating Discoloration

Discoloration can look unsightly on the skin, so pigment treatment is an important part of the CHEER regimen. Different skin resurfacing treatments are used to encourage skin cell turnover, removing the damaged cells while making room for the healthy ones. Products like the Colorescience® Even Up® Clinical Pigment Perfector® can help reduce the look of discoloration.

5. Rejuvenation

Rejuvenation is the last step of the CHEER routine, adding nourishment to the skin. This part will bring the holiday glow to the face and encourage cell renewal, restoring confidence. Some of the products that can rejuvenate the skin are the SkinMedica® TNS Recovery Complex or the SkinMedica® TNS Advanced+ Serum. They can improve texture, skin tone, and the appearance of wrinkles.
