Thankfully, it seems like spring is finally here in Atlanta. For many this means flowers blooming, birds singing, and more time spent outside. But what does it mean for your skin?
“It’s important to change up one’s skin care routine with the seasons and to challenge the skin regularly” said Dr. Fishman, speaking with Total Beauty. Read on to discover tips to get your best skin this spring season or read the full article here.
As the dryness of winter subsides, ditch those heavy butters and creams. Instead, opt for a light oil or lotion. Dr. Fishman recommends looking for one containing hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid grabs on to water molecules in the air around you, helping the skin to retain moisture. It can also help to smooth skin, lessening the appearance of wrinkles.
While sunscreen is an essential part of a skincare routine year round, UV rays become more intense during the warmer months. If you haven’t already, make sure you add SPF to your daily routine. Protecting yourself from the sun’s harmful rays helps to combat fine lines, freckles, and uneven pigmentation.
For many, warm weather brings out oily, sweaty skin. Adding products with mattifying ingredients can help to lessen the appearance of shine–without making your skin dull!
As you switch up your skincare routine, it’s important to listen to what your skin tells you. If your skin is dry, it may be time to decrease use of aggressive cleansers and acids. Exfoliation with a gentle scrub may help to peel away the dead, dry skin that built up during the cold winter months.
As Dr. Fishman often points out, the best skincare regimen should be personalized to you. “In my opinion, good skin care is a combination of something that agrees with my patient, her needs and her lifestyle,” she says. A skincare that works best should be suited to you!
