Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring…each presents its own, unique skin care issues…and each calls for a different skincare routine. Your fragile facial skin is bombarded daily by 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 – and especially now that spring is almost here. Spring is a time for new beginnings, so it’s a good time to start taking proper care of your skin if you aren’t doing so already.
As you begin to trade your bulky sweaters for sun-dresses, here are a few tips to jump-start your spring skincare routine:
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. The idea is to work up to exfoliating two to three times a week. You can exfoliate gently at home using a soft washcloth or, if you want an easy DIY scrub recipe, you can mix granulated sugar with olive oil or honey for an extra dose of hydration. Remember – take it easy. Be gentle! Don’t pull or tug at your skin or rub too vigorously.
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.
Spring is also the perfect time to make an appointment for an Injectable Treatment, such as Botox. There is no downtime with a Botox treatment; your skin will be renewed and ready just in time for summer. It’s great to know you’ll look your best, even without make-up, as you head to the pool or beach.
