Spring is here, and that is a reason to celebrate! But while you are ready for sandals and sunglasses, your skin may still be feeling the pain of a long winter. Help your dry, neglected skin glow with these springtime tips:
1. Skin Care Products
Just as you transition your wardrobe from season to season, your skin care routine may change too. Are you using the right skin care products for your skin? If you are dry in the winter and oily in the summer, there are products that can easily be adjusted to insure you are obtaining your anti-aging goals while maximizing the overall look to your skin. The DermaSpa RX line has been specially formulated for the always changing Colorado climate.
2. Make Sunscreen a Habit
We all know how important it is to wear sunscreen every day, especially in Colorado. Make it mandatory that you apply Sun Protection daily. The best kind has an SPF of 30 or higher, with active ingredients of Zinc Oxide and/or Titanium Dioxide. Reapplication is easy when stashing bottles of sunscreen in your car, desk at work, gym bag, anywhere you may need it. There are also great powder Sun Protection options to reapply after makeup application.
3. Exfoliate Regularly
Remove dead and dull skin that winter left behind. A few times per week, use a gentle exfoliating product such as DermaSpa Rx Retin Aid for your face, neck, chest and hands. Applying a DermaSpa RX Moisturizer is sure to hydrate and soften the skin. You can use a Clarisonic body system to help soften areas such as elbows and feet.
4. Book a Medical Grade Facial Treatment
If you only get a facial a few times a year, Spring is often a great time to do it. A professional and licensed Medical Aesthetician can help clear your pores, reduce the appearance of acne, soften fine lines and leave your skin looking its absolute best. Try a light glycolic peel or Salt Peel Macrodermabrasion with no downtime. Effects of these treatments typically last 4-6 weeks, so regular visits to your Medical Aesthetician as recommended for best results.
5. See a Dermatologist
Too often people only visit a dermatologist when a problem arises. But seeing a dermatologist is the best way to maintain the health of your skin your entire life. By visiting a dermatologist for a skin exam (also known as a Mole Check), you can also set a baseline so you can easily spot any issues that may develop over time.down the line.
6. Try CosmeticTreatments
When you look your best, you feel your best. Get ready for a confident, sunny summer by addressing excess hair, loose skin, wrinkles and spider veins with services such as Laser Hair Removal, Non-Invasive Skin Tightening treatments, Injectables, and Spider Vein reduction.
