With the new season and weather change, it’s time for a new skin care regimen. Our body experiences many changes through the seasons and spring is a good time for checking in with your own skin, not just your face but your body, too. The past few winter months have been tough on the skin, with harsh temperatures, snow, and dry, indoor heating. The winter season can take a massive toll on our complexion leaving it dry, dehydrated, and lacking that natural glow that we all love so much.
Here are a few simple skin care changes to gracefully spring into the warmer months ahead!
We can all use a gentler approach to skin care, and a great place to start how we exfoliate. Winter brings a lot of build up of dead skin cells, leftover product, and environmental toxins. As the weather warms up and activity increases, our metabolism, circulation, and oil production all get back into gear which will instantly brighten the complexion, but this is also a great time of year to exfoliate.
Swap Heavier Formulations for Lighter Ones
A new skin care regimen and season is helpful to let your skin breathe a bit and balance itself out. Instead of using the same amount of products you have been using all winter, swap out your heavy creams for lighter formulas.
After months spent bundled up in heavy jackets and scarves, slathering on sun protection is a must once temps start to rise. Apply an SPF every morning and reapply it again before any outdoor activity during the day. The importance of sunscreen can’t be reiterated enough, by estheticians especially. It’s one of the easiest ways you can prevent damage and keep your skin healthy throughout the year.
A Visit to the Spa
A visit to the spa during the seasonal shift isn’t just a way to pamper yourself. Talk to your esthetician for a customized skin care regimen, that way you are prepared for the change of season ahead!
