4 Key Tips For Springtime Skin Care
The cold winter months are finally leaving us and spring is here! The flowers are blooming; birds are singing…spring cleaning begins with your wardrobe and home; but what about the way you are taking care of your skin? In winter months our skin tends to be more sensitive and dry due to the cold but as the temperatures change and the sun begins to shine your skin care routine may need a little cleaning up too.
Here are 5 ways to ramp up your spring skincare routine and uncover your radiance this season:
- Start fresh! The cold weather causes buildup of excess dead skin cells on the face hiding that springtime glow underneath. Before washing, exfoliate using a gentle scrub such as almond, sugar or oatmeal depending on your skin type. (Not sure what your skin type is? Click on this link to find out!)
- Wash and moisturize. Check your face wash...is it for your skin type? Were you using an extra moisturizing wash and face cream during these last few cold months? Depending on your skin type, spring can signal the use of a lighter face wash and moisturizer instead of the heavier creams that help protect against over-drying in winter.
- As the sun begins to shine we tend to notice more that we… well… aren’t. The gray months and so much time inside tend to bring on a change in our pallor, darker circles under the eyes and maybe even a few more lines and wrinkles that weren’t there before. A CryoFacial a few times a week can fix that right up! A 10 minute CryoFacial prevents the breakdown of existing collagen and promotes the growth of new collagen leaving your skin tight, firm and glowing.
- Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen! We can’t say it enough. Summer may not be here however exposure to the sun’s rays even in spring accelerates the aging process and increase your risk of skin cancer. Use a daily, facial moisturizer with SPF to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays.
