Tips For Great Skin This Spring and Beyond....

Spring is here on Friday! As much of the country looks forward to crawling out of a long winter hibernation, it's a great time to focus on bringing your skin back to life as well. Here's some reminders and tips for your best skin this Spring and beyond....

  • Exfoliate away that winter skin.
    Use a gentle body scrub/body cloth to exfoliate away those winter flakes. Be sure to pay extra attention to elbows and feet.
  • Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize.
    All skin needs hydration daily (yes, even oily). Look for facial moisturizers geared to your skin type and use body lotion immediately after showering to lock in moisture.
  • Use an antioxidant serum.
    Spring and summer means more time outside, and that means more exposure to UV light and pollution. An antioxidant serum can help to squash the negative effects of free-radicals and get your skin glowing!
  • Get a customized facial treatment from a pro.
    Our skin changes throughout the year, especially with the change of seasons. This is a great time for some "spring cleaning" or a little boost. Your licensed Skin Therapist is a great resource for any tweaks your home routine may need to look great this summer!
