Summer is the time of year when you can break out your shorts, t-shirts, and favorite swimsuits and head to the beach. It’s also the time of year for getting fit and giving your skin that healthy, dewy glow that can be hard to maintain throughout the colder months. It’s been a long, cold winter and you’ll need to need to get started now to prepare your skin for what lies ahead in the summer of 2020. Here are some of our most recommended ways to boost your skincare game this spring and get ready for your best you yet.
Exfoliate Your Skin
Your skin constantly regenerates itself by shedding dead skin cells at the surface of your epidermis. During winter, this can be made worse by colder temperatures and dry air, contributing to dryness and flakiness. Exfoliation is one of the best ways to remove these dead cells and reveal a new layer of healthy, glowing skin. Although you can use professional-grade skincare products at home to chemically exfoliate your skin, you can also opt for customizable treatments like chemical peels or dermaplaning performed by a professional. These can remove damaged layers of skin and address many different skin concerns with regular treatments.
Moisturize with Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid is a must when it comes to your daily moisturizer or serum. Hyaluronic acid is a complex sugar naturally found in your skin and absorbs up to 1,000 times its weight in water! This means it can effectively moisturize your skin, sometimes well beyond traditional moisturizers. With daily or semi-daily use, you’ll notice a difference in your skin’s texture and feel, meaning it can be a great way to maintain the results of your in-office skincare treatment.
Give Your Skin a Boost
Especially if you’re starting to notice some signs of aging, it’s likely that your skin’s regenerative properties have started to slow down over time. This can make it more difficult to get a healthy glow and even youthful plumpness brought on by collagen loss. Quick and easy treatments like microneedling or laser treatments can be a great way to boost collagen and give your skin some radiance again with regular treatments. Additionally, treatments like microneedling can jumpstart your skin’s rejuvenating processes meaning you can turn over healthy new cells faster.
Optimize Your Skincare
Like your wardrobe, your skincare regimen should change with the seasons. Although during the winter you should be focused on fighting dryness and maintaining moisture, summer is a good time to focus on brightening and protecting your skin from sun damage. This means that a new season can be a great time to change up your at-home products or even try new ones. We offer a selection of physician-grade products to help you get your best results yet with the help of our skincare specialists.
