The never-ending winter has finally come to an end! Now that the spring is here and summer is around the corner it is time for some spring cleaning – for your skin care routine! Just like we change our clothes for the seasons we must change our skin care routine as well. With the winter causing most of us to be a bit dry, have flaky and sensitive skin, in the warmer months we tend to see more oil and breakouts. Changing out skin care products is crucial to making sure we are giving our skin everything it needs to keep it balanced. It’s time to say GOOD BYE to heavy creams and HELLO to SPF & antioxidant serums!
What I recommend most to my patients is SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic or Phloretin CF antioxidant serums. Using either of these serums before applying any SPF will help to amplify the benefits of a sunscreen and make sure you are getting the most from your products. We recommend the antioxidant serum before your sunscreen because it is going to advance the environmental protection against free radicals that will damage the skin induced by UVA, UVB & infrared radiation.
Next step is ALWAYS 100% necessary. Even though you cannot see the sun all of the time doesn’t mean it is not there! Make sure you are ALWAYS wearing an SPF. Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the USA right now but also the most preventable. Using an SPF every day will protect your skin from sun damage, discoloration of the skin & early signs of aging. 90% of visible aging comes from the hours spent in the sun. Spare your skin tomorrow and wear your sunscreen today!
