Changes You Need to Make to Your Skincare Routine Right Now

March 30, 2016posted by Massage Heights

Have you been using the same skincare products for years? If you aren’t happy with your complexion or wish you had a bit more of a glow, it might be time to switch up your routine! In fact, most dermatologists will agree that your skin has different needs throughout the year; staying with the same routine may be doing more harm than good. As we transition into spring, here are a few changes to your skincare routine you need to make right now to have beautiful, healthy skin all year round.

Seasons Change, So Does Your Skin

Your basic skincare routine won’t cut it year round. Your skin reacts to the environmental conditions you live in, paying attention to the weather will effect what prescription your skin may need. Generally speaking, you’ll find that skin may be oilier during the summer and drier in the winter. After months of harsh weather, your skin is probably in dire need of a healthy revamp. Your heavy winter moisturizer may be too much for the sweltering heat of summer. Changing cleansers and using a lighter moisturizer as the weather warms up is just what you need to keep your skin soft and supple, without being overly shiny.

Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate!

Exfoliating works to help rid your skin of any dry, rough layers of skin left over from winter. Finding the best exfoliation routine for your skin can make all the difference. What works for your best friend’s skin is not necessarily what will work for yours. After all, your skin is unique, and you need a customized approach to get the best results.

Don’t forget the SPF.

While sun protection is a must year-round, as the weather warms up this spring, you are more likely to spend time outside enjoying the gorgeous weather. Allow one of our Skin Therapists to prescribe the best sunscreen for your skin type.

Get a facial.
