Winter wreaks havoc on skin. Summer is the time we spend out and about soaking in the sun and the fun. When you put those two together, that doesn’t give you much time to heal that winter damage and clear it up before summer comes full swing. That’s why it’s so important to start today. You can do so much for your skin in the springtime by using these top tips.
Kickstart Your Efforts with Cosmetic Treatments
Sometimes our skincare routine needs a little boost, and that’s where cosmetic treatments come in. Chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and laser treatments can all help improve the appearance of your skin, from reducing fine lines and wrinkles to fading dark spots and acne scars. These treatments can also jumpstart your skincare routine, making it easier to achieve and maintain clear and glowing skin.
If you want to see big results, fast, however, then you’ll want to look into cosmetic treatments like Botox or Derma fillers. If your concern is fine lines in the forehead and around your eyes, for example, then book Botox in Miami, FL to help smooth out those lines. If, on the other hand, you have deep lines around your mouth or under your eyes, have those cosmologists add derma fillers. Both options can give you immediate, months-long lasting results.
Be Consistent with Your Morning and Nighttime Routines
Clear skin needs consistency. To do this, create a morning and nighttime routine that works for you and be vigilant so that you stick to it. Make sure to cleanse your face every morning and night to remove any dirt, oil, or makeup. Use a gentle cleanser no matter what type of skin you have, as you don’t want to strip your skin of those ever-important natural oils. Follow up with a toner to help balance your skin’s pH level and a moisturizer to hydrate and protect your skin. Don’t forget to incorporate a serum or treatment that targets your specific skin concerns.
Upgrade Your Pillows and Eye Masks to Silk Satin
Believe it or not, the material of your pillows and eye masks can make a big difference in the appearance of your skin. Cotton can absorb moisture from your skin, for example, leaving it dry and irritated. Silk satin, on the other hand, is gentle on your skin and helps to prevent wrinkles and creases. Upgrade your pillows and eye masks to silk satin for a luxurious and skin-friendly sleep. Regardless of what type of pillow cases you use, however, remember to wash it every few days (think twice per week) to remove any built-up sweat and bacteria.
Wear Sunscreen All Day Every Day
Last but certainly not least, wearing sunscreen every day is essential for protecting your skin from harmful UV rays. Not only does sun damage lead to premature aging, but it can also increase your risk of skin cancer. Always use, at minimum, 30 SPF and use it like a moisturizer. If you don’t like the way the standard beach-going moisturizer feels, then opt for one of the water-based alternatives popular in Asian countries. Reapply it in the morning and every two hours to get full coverage.
