After a cold and windy winter, dead skin cells are giving many a dull and lackluster complexion. This is why so many people who care about the appearance of their skin renew themselves with a new springtime skin care routine.
The good news is that making a beeline for the nearest day spa isn’t necessary. Many skin care treatments can be done in the privacy of one’s own home making the process both convenient and affordable.
The three top skin springtime tips are the following:
• Solar Defense
“The first important step to get your skin ready for springtime is to exfoliate,” said the spokesperson from Skin Care Heaven based in San Diego.
One product which offers two perks for the price of one is DermaEarth’s SugarBerry Skin Resurfacing Cleanser.
“This naturally scientific product is a facial cleanser which uses sweet sugar cane extract, lactic acid, tartaric acid, and malic acid to visibly improve facial skin texture,” she said. “While it thoroughly cleanses, it exfoliates with alpha-hydroxy acids.” This skin care line is paraben-free and void of any suspect ingredients making it a welcome for those who are into healthy skin care solutions.
Another great exfoliating product is Obagi Nu Derm Exfoderm Forte. Also containing alpha-hydroxyl, it supremely exfoliates dead skin cells revealing radiant skin. It also prepares the skin for other product penetration.
Following an exfoliating treatment, it’s important to hydrate the skin. A good moisturizer or serum should be applied both morning and evening. Once again, Obagi and DermaEarth deliver great results.
“DermaEarth Peptidal Cell Activating Serum adds hydration, diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and improves age spot challenges,” said the spokesperson. “This product transforms wintry, tired skin to a luminous glow.”
The natural science behind DermaEarth products is a blend of high performing lab natural peptides and natural ingredients which are formulated with Rx grade technology.
“And Obagi Hydrate moisturizes skin by using the natural ingredient of Hydromanil extracted from tara seed, shea, mango, and avocado,” she said.
And springtime skin care would not be complete without sunscreen. Being skin safe with a solar defense is one of the most important things to do to prevent premature skin aging and skin cancer.
When purchasing a product, search for a broad spectrum sunscreen and one which is water resistant. Remember, reapplication of a sunscreen throughout the day is necessary to ensure protection.
“A couple favorites on our list include Doc Martin’s of Maui and EltaMD Skincare UV PURE SPF 47,” she said. “Each manufacturer has an array of sunscreen products to choose from and all are really great.”
These springtime tips are a surefire springboard into looking gorgeous with ease.
