The cold months are nearing an end, and it’s time to start thinking about ways to get your skin ready for springtime. The transition from winter to spring can take a little research and preparation if you don’t already have a skincare routine established. Here are a few treatments and focus areas to help make the seasonal transition a little easier.
Cold temperatures bring dry, flaky skin, which is great to manage with preventative steps on a regular basis. With the warmer months approaching there are many different techniques one can utilize to sluff off that winter layer and start focusing on your springtime glow.
A nonintrusive and painless procedure that brings the result of radiant skin, softer features, and alert eyes, Dermaplaning is an excellent system for anyone that is looking for deep exfoliation of the skin or removal of unwanted facial hair. Additionally, there is little to no downtime associated with Dermaplaning.
Throughout this treatment, the top layer is exfoliated and removed to leave clients with a smooth, revitalized appearance. Microdermabrasion is a nonintrusive procedure with minimal pain that focuses on the very top layer of dry, dead skin cells. This is fitting or all skin types and is perfect for those having issues with:
Need an excellent option to hydrate quickly and efficiently upon completion of Dermaplaning or Microdermabrasion? A Micro-Infusion is similar to a “hydrafacial”, but ultimately gives better results as a hydrating antioxidant rich moisturizer jam-packed with an abundance of active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid vitamins and botanical nutrients is saturated throughout the skin.
While heavy creams with lower SPF levels are better for the winter months, it’s recommended to transition toward a lighter moisturizer or cream with a higher SPF in the springtime. Skin tends to hold more water in the spring and summer months, meaning less protection is required. Typically, moisturizers with hyaluronic acid or water-based formulas should be a go-to for the warmer weather.
Winter and spring are perfect opportunities to establish a makeup transition phase as all beauty items build up germs over time, which can be detrimental to your skincare routine without you even knowing. The rule of thumb is to throw out anything that is over six months old as products outside of this timeframe are likely to host bacteria that lead to dull skin and clogged pores over time. Not only will you establish a fun new color palette for the upcoming season change, but you’ll also have the opportunity to invest in lighter-weight formulas and rid yourself of those pesky germs.
Serums, oils, and facial mists have been the rising trend in skincare for quite some time. If you haven’t invested already, here is your chance to join the club! All have their perks, but ultimately are lightweight, convenient options to get your skin the hydration and nutrients it needs quickly and efficiently.
These are lightweight, hydrating moisturizers that penetrate deeper to deliver active ingredients into your skin. Containing a higher concentration of active ingredients than typical moisturizers, adding a serum into your daily routine can give your skin:
Oils help seal in moisture and add extra nourishment to your skincare routine. Oil that is applied after your moisturizer seals in all the vitamins and goodies, making your skin more likely to hold onto that added hydration. If you’re intimidated and uncertain of where to start, here are a few spring recommendations from our friends over at Vogue for facial oils.
Mists not only keep your makeup looking great all day, but also work to help keep your skin hydrated throughout the duration. These can also help balance out oil production and keep skin feeling fresh. If you need a quick pick-me-up, this is the perfect option.
Don’t forget to show some love to those other extremities as well. With sunshine quickly approaching you need to make sure those feet are in primo condition. Utilizing a foot cream daily and exfoliating your feet twice a week will help heal the dry, cracked heels the colder months are bound to leave behind. If you’re unsure of where to begin, this exfoliant foot peel is a great starting point to get prepared for spring.
It’s always great to carry a few skincare items with you while you’re on the go to help you stay on top of your skincare game and prevent any pesky conditions none of us like to deal with. Here are a few items you can easily bring on the go:
These are all very beneficial skincare treatments and options to help you get prepared for the warmer weather. Make sure to be proactive and find your products or schedule an appointment so your skin can be glowing and healthy for the spring and summer months.
