How to give your face a good spring cleaning
- Posted on: Mar 11 2016
When you think of spring cleaning, you probably think of those spots in your home that haven't been dusted in far too long. But what about your face? After surviving the brutal winter, your skin deserves some much-needed pampering. Here are a few ways you can give your face a good "spring cleaning":
Because of colder temperatures and gusts of wind, skin is more likely to be dry in the winter. Just because spring is here, though, doesn't mean moisturizing needs to end. In fact, now is a great time to step up your hydration game. We have different moisturizing products, like the SkinMedica Replenish Hydrating Cream, that can help you better protect your skin.
Just like you would scrub a surface in your home, you should remove certain particles and dead skin cells from your face. Unlike a countertop or bathtub, though, your face needs a gentle exfoliation to remove dead skin cells without being too abrasive and removing healthy skin!
At Skin & Cosmetic Solutions, we offer a variety of exfoliating peel treatments for different skin types and needs. For patients who already have a consistent at-home rejuvenation and exfoliation routine, the Vitalize Peel is better suited to you. For those just starting out, the VI Peel is great for all skin types and requires little prep and downtime.
Protect from the sun
Part of your facial spring cleaning should include a plan to keep your skin healthy. The best way to do that is to avoid excessive sun exposure. To protect your face from harmful UV damage, you should wear sunscreen daily, not just at the beach. Wearing a good sunscreen everyday can not only reduce your exposure to the UV rays that cause skin cancer, but also help you avoid premature aging, skin discoloration and wrinkles. We sell Clinicians Complex Total Sun Protection Lotion (SPF 30), which can give you a great daily defense against the sun.
