Now that spring is here, it’s time to think about how you care for your skin as you prepare for the sunny summer months ahead. Like it or not, your fragile facial skin is exposed to the elements every day. Each season presents unique skin care challenges, and each season calls for a different skin care routine. Spring and summer, winter and fall – give your skin the loving care it deserves.
What to do? Here are two great ways to begin:
- Hydrate: Invest in a good facial moisturizer with a built-in sunscreen and you won’t regret it. You should have been keeping your skin moist during the winter months…but now that the sun is about to pay us daily visits, moisture plus sunscreen are absolutely essential for summer soft skin.
- Exfoliate: The chilly, dry winter air is very harsh on your skin; sloughing off winter’s dead skin cells can renew, refresh and revive your skin. You can exfoliate gently at home by using a soft washcloth or, if you want an easy DIY scrub recipe, you can mix granulated sugar with honey or olive oil for a extra bit of hydration. Be gentle, and don’t tug at your skin or rub it vigorously. The goal is to work up to exfoliating two to three times a week. The best time to do it is in the shower while your facial skin is moist and warm.
