Skincare is a difficult task to take on, and more often than not when we take on our skin care regimen and routine, we pick the wrong products and methods and wind up doing more damage to our skin than not. For instance, did you know that every month requires a different skin routine? Because every season brings different types of weather, different routines need to be taken into consideration in order for your skin to get everything that it needs. Today we’re going to cover a few things that you need to start doing to transition from a winter skin care regimen to a spring skin care routine.
Winter is always the dryest season, regardless of where you are, but especially here in Nashville. Now that the brutal, cold, dry weather is gone, it’s time to moisturize your skin and bring back the vibrant, beautiful elasticity of your skin. Now, hopefully, you’ve been moisturizing, seeing as how the winter is so incredibly dry. When you look for moisturizers, do your best to find one that not only moisturizes but also provides some additional vitamins and additional protection from the sun, that way you can make the most of your product.
Winter definitely leaves some dry patches of skin, and exfoliating is definitely a part of skin care tactics that need to happen, but as the weather warms up, you’re going to want to lessen a number of times that this happens. You should still continue to exfoliate about once a week until your skin is left feeling smoother and looking brighter, any more and you are more likely to dry out your skin and leave it looking cracked and dry.
Since the weather is getting warmer, it’s not uncommon for the amount that you sweat to increase. When this happens, pores often clog up and can create blackheads and acne breakouts. In order to avoid this, it’s necessary that you have a diligent cleansing routine. You’re going to want to find a product that works for your skin type so that it does provide your skin with the care that it needs. When you find a product that works for you, you’re going to want to wash your face one to two times a day to ensure that it stays clean.
Keeping up with all of these techniques, with the right products, can make a big difference on your skin, especially in the transition of seasons. When you pair these skin care tactics with a facial or microdermabrasion procedure every once in awhile, you will see that your skin slowly starts to take on that beautiful spring glow we’re all familiar with.
