Spring is one of the best times of the year with loads of things to look forward to, from prom to summer break to nights out on the town with your friends, and everything in between. You don’t want to miss out on any of it, which is why we’re going to help you prepare for the busy season ahead with these tips to keep you and your skin feeling and looking healthy all along the way.
Using sunscreen regularly will help your skin to look younger longer. Besides, after a long, dark winter, think of how susceptible your skin will be to sun burn! Get a good sunscreen, with a 30 SPF, and slather it on every day. Only choose oil-free, noncomprehending options to avoid aggravating acne.
it or not, what you eat is just as important as what you don’t eat.
Substitute unhealthy foods – like burgers and fries – with fresh
vegetables and fruits. Also try organic products. Certain foods can set
off the acne process for some people.
Now that you’ll be spending more time outside, your body can lose moisture. It’s important to replenish regularly with lots and lots of water. Not only will this help keep your skin soft, it will also help keep your skin moisturized.
Your skin takes quite a beating during those cold winter months so it definitely deserves a little TLC. One way to do this is to exfoliate. Clearasil® Daily Clear® Daily Facial Scrub, Ultra Rapid Action Face Scrub, and Ultra Overnight Scrub have exfoliating beads that do a great job of cleaning your skin as well.
the cold, dry air goes away, you may no longer need that heavy-duty
moisturizer. Think about switching to a moisturizer with a lower lipid
content that will still keep your skin nice and hydrated without making
you feel greasy. If you have oily skin, look for a moisturizer with a
matte finish (like skoah’s face skotion). Look at your cleanser as well.
If you have been using a creamy cleanser all winter and have
combination skin, think about making a switch to a gel based cleanser
(like skoah’s gel kleanser) for the warmer months. As with any cleanser
(face, body or hair), look for products that are Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
Wear Sun Protection
If you have been hibernating all winter long and are now venturing out and about, remember to wear sun protection. There are a lot of moisturizers and makeup products that include an SPF, making it super easy to protect your skin daily. If your products do not contain sun protection, make sure to wear a separate product with an SPF of 30. This is the single most important step you can take to help prevent premature aging (as well as protecting your skin from skin cancer and a host of other nasty skin problems).
The changing seasons are a great time to review your skin care routine. It is spring cleaning for your skin care!
