Roughly one million skin cells are shed on a daily basis. If your skin’s not the same every day, why should your skin care routine be? Especially since your skin has changing nutrient requirements along with the season.
As we begin to switch our winter wardrobes to summer, now is a great time to update skin care regimens as well. Your skin care routine not only includes the external products you use, but everything from proper hydration from the inside out by drinking plenty of water to aesthetic services such as microdermabrasion, microneedling or dermaplaning.
Here are our top 3 spring skin care tips:
Exfoliating your skin is essential and should be done 1-3 times per month for healthy, glowing skin. Exfoliation helps eliminate dead skin cells, increases the flow of blood, and encourages the growth of new skin. You can purchase skin care products that include an exfoliant, such as our microdermabrasion cream or ultimate scrub, to maintain your skin at home. You also can see one of our MediSpa specialists for a chemical peel or microdermabrasion, both of which help your skin look younger and healthier.
• Apply skin care products at night.
After a long day of work or play, your skin is covered in sweat and dirt, which can increase your risk of developing embarrassing pimples and blackheads. Using skin care products at night not only gets the gunk off your face, but it also moisturizes.
Our experts recommend Private Reserve Cosmetics, since they are specially formulated for climates with temperature variations like Idaho. We can look at your specific skin type and choose the products that will be most beneficial in helping you reach your skincare goals.
We love Private Reserve Cosmetics because they have a high concentration of proteins, peptides, growth factors, and bioavailable enzymes that combine together to deliver an amazing outcome for your hydrated, fresh, youthful skin.
• Lighten up moisturizer usage.
We all suffer from dryer skin in the winter because our skin does not hold as much water as it does in spring and summer. As you transition from winter to spring, go from a thicker moisturizing cream to a lighter one since your skin needs less protection.
