Each season presents its own skin care challenges…and each season calls for a different skincare routine. Your skin, especially your fragile facial skin, is constantly exposed to the elements…from winter’s chill to summer’s heat. You should give your skin the tender, loving care it needs to thrive throughout the year – but especially now that spring is just around the corner.
To that end, here are a few tips to jump-start your spring and summer skincare routines:
Exfoliate: Because the cold, dry winter air is hard on your skin, sloughing off winter’s dead cells can renew and refresh your skin. If you haven’t exfoliated the dead skin cells from your face all winter, it’s time to start. You can exfoliate gently at home by using a soft washcloth or, if you want an easy DIY scrub recipe, you can mix granulated sugar or oatmeal with honey or olive oil for an extra dose of hydration. Remember to be gentle! Don’t pull or tug at your skin or rub too vigorously. The idea is to work up to exfoliating two to three times a week.
If you want maximum rejuvenation, make an appointment with us for a microdermabrasion treatment or a chemical peel. These treatments are designed to improve the appearance of dull skin, uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, blackheads, and even sun damage. They are non-invasive, quick and easy…and can be done on your lunch hour.
Moisturize: Invest in a good facial moisturizer – one with a built-in sunscreen, if possible. Hopefully you have been keeping your skin moist during the winter months…but now that the sun is about to be a daily visitor, moisture plus sunscreen are absolute musts for soft, summer-ready skin.
Spring is also a great time to make an appointment for one of our Injectable Treatments, like Botox. There is absolutely no downtime with a Botox treatment. You’ll be smiling and ready just in time for summer. And you’ll look your best, even without make-up, as you trade your boots for sandals and head to the beach or pool.
