Summer, fall, winter, spring…every season of the year presents unique skin care challenges, and each calls for a different skincare routine. Your tender, fragile facial skin is constantly exposed to the elements…from winter’s chill to summer’s blazing heat. It’s appropriate to give your skin the loving care it deserves to thrive throughout the year – but especially now that spring is just around the corner.
Here are a few ways to jump-start your spring skincare routine:
Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize: Invest in a good facial moisturizer – one with a built-in sunscreen. You should have been keeping your skin moist during the winter months…but now that the sun is about to shine on a regular basis, moisture plus sunscreen are absolute musts for soft, summer-ready skin.
Don’t Wait…Exfoliate: The cold, dry winter air is harsh on your skin; sloughing off winter’s dead cells can renew, refresh and revive it. 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 a bit of hydration. Be gentle. Don’t tug at your skin or rub too vigorously. The idea is to work up to exfoliating two to three times a week.
For maximum spring-time rejuvenation, schedule an appointment with us for a non-invasive microdermabrasion treatment or chemical peel, or try a Botox injectable treatment. These treatments are designed to improve the appearance of dull skin, uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, blackheads, and sun damage. They are quick and easy…and can be done on your lunch hour.
It’s the absolute perfect time…call to schedule an appointment for a microdermabrasion, peel or Botox treatment, today: (414) 443-0033.
