Spring is the perfect time to give your skin some love and attention! With the new season, comes the opportunity to refresh your skincare routine and get your skin feeling its best. Here are five tips for skincare that will help you prepare for the upcoming season and keep your skin healthy and glowing. From exfoliating to moisturizing, these tips for skincare will have you looking and feeling your best in no time.
1) Treat yourself
For many of us, spring is a time to get outside with picnics and other outdoor activities. To enjoy these activities to their fullest, you need to have the confidence to get out and do what you want to do. For many, that starts with treating your skin with the same care and conviction you treat yourself.
A facial from LaVida Massage + Skincare is the perfect way to treat yourself and your skin! A spring facial acts as a cleanser for the skin, particularly a Deep Cleanse Facial, which will remove dirt, dead skin, excess oil, and more from the skin, leaving the skin looking beautiful and feeling purified.
2) Bring in spring with exfoliation
Exfoliating removes dead winter skin, dirt, and unclogs pores, renewing and refreshing the new skin underneath. There are a handful of ways to exfoliate your skin including exfoliating scrubs, enzyme peels, and facial brushes. Be sure to choose a gentle exfoliator that is suitable for your skin type and that doesn’t over-exfoliate. With careful exfoliation, you’ll be ready to step out into the crisp, spring air.
3) Protect your skin
With the onslaught of spring comes more exposure to the sun’s UV rays. UV rays can cause premature aging and increase your risk of skin cancer. Protect yourself by applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 35 or higher, even on cloudy days. Reapply your SPF sunscreen periodically throughout the day and limit your exposure to UV rays to a few hours a day, wearing hats and long sleeves to protect the skin on your face and arms. Protecting your skin is highly encouraged year-round and essential in Spring.
Moisturizing your skin is essential for keeping it looking healthy and radiant as the seasons change. During the spring months, your skin may require more hydration to keep it looking its best. Try to find a moisturizer that fits your skin type – if you have oily skin, opt for an oil-free moisturizer to avoid clogging your pores. Additionally, look for moisturizers with SPF to keep your skin protected from the sun’s rays. Hydrating your skin will help get it ready for spring by softening and smoothing any dry patches caused by the winter weather. An Esthetician from LaVIda Massage can recommend a moisturizer that will work best for your skin.
Once you have consulted with your dermatologist and found what products and routines work best for you, maintain that routine for the recommended amount of time that your esthetician recommends.
Spring is the perfect time to give your skin some extra attention and prep it for the season ahead. With a few simple steps, you can get your skin ready for spring: Get a facial, exfoliate to slough away dead skin cells, moisturize to keep skin hydrated, protect from the sun’s UV rays with sunscreen, treat any skin concerns with targeted products, and maintain a consistent skincare routine. With these tips, you can have beautiful, healthy skin that is ready for spring.
