Winter in Utah – crispy, exhilarating, smoggy, cold and, yes, fun. But here comes Spring! The crocuses are peeking through the dirty snow the sun is paying warm, sunny visits.
Each season in Utah 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 summer’s sunny days to winter’s cold, dry air. You should be giving your skin the tender, loving care it needs to thrive throughout the year. So, now that spring is springing, here are a few tips to jump-start your spring skincare routine – as you trade your balaclava for your bikini:
Exfoliate – Because It’s Great
- 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 and be gentle…don’t tug or pull at your skin or scrub 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.
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
- Invest in a good facial moisturizer – one with a built-in sunscreen, if possible. Hopefully you have been keeping your skin moist during the winter months, but now that the sun is about to be a daily visitor, moisture plus sunscreen are absolute musts for soft, summer-ready skin.
Consider An Injectable
- Spring is 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 rejuvenated and ready just in time for summer. And it’s a great feeling to know you’ll look your best, even without make-up, as you anticipate the warm, sunny days ahead.
