With temperatures rising and days becoming longer, we bid adieu to winter. Now comes the season for pulling off our sweaters, cardigans and boots and pulling on the shorts and sandals.
With the onset of spring, you will find yourself facing a lot of skin problems. The sun aggravates our aging process. If we do not protect our skin properly, then the harmful UV rays of the sun will damage our skin. The human skin is very sensitive and therefore proper care should be taken to protect it from all kinds of pollution, harmful chemicals and much more.
A prolonged and chilled winter can leave your skin looking dry, dull and even old. So start getting prepared to face the weather change. To begin with nothing can be better than exfoliating your skin using oatmeal, ground almonds or even sea salt. What is needed is to remove the dead cells from your skin. This will give you a natural fresh and radiant look.
SkinMedica products are even better when it comes to caring for your skin as they do not contain any harmful chemicals that may at a later stage damage your skin. You must also ensure that the products and especially the exfoliant you use for your face is different from the one that you use for the other parts of your body. The one that you use for your face needs to have alpha-hydroxy or beta-hydroxy acid.
Retinol is a form of Vitamin A that helps rejuvenate the skin. It improves the cellularity of the skin, stimulates better circulation to feed the skin better, decreases melanocyte production and distribution. Thus, it lessens almost all the changes that “age” does to your skin, like fine wrinkles, pigmentations, and less collagen.
You must also study your skin type well. If you have an oily skin then you must exfoliate several times a week. In case of dry skin you should exfoliate 1-2 times a week and it should be a gentle exfoliant.
With the sun shining with full strength during this time, using a moisturizer with a sunscreen is a must. Ensure that your sunscreen that should contain a minimum SPF 15. These will not only protect your skin from getting damaged but will also keep fine lines away. If you use a light moisturizer then it will be an added advantage for you since you can apply makeup over it.
If you are thinking of going for a cosmetic surgery then it is the best time of the year since it is this time of the year that is loaded with a host of festivals like, Mother’s Day, communions and graduations and many more.
You can also go for injectables like Botox, Juvederm and Artefill. These will not only help you rejuvenate your skin but you can also keep the aging of your skin at bay. If you can dedicate more of your time then you should go in for laser resurfacing. This is one of the most recommended ways for removing facial wrinkles and skin irregularities, such as blemishes or acne scars. But this is time consuming as said earlier.
