As spring approaches and the winter months pave way for warm summer weather, our skincare routines should follow suit, transitioning from heavy and reparative to light and dewy! In warmer months, hydration is just as paramount as it is in winter, but lightweight formulas reign supreme.
There are three types of wrinkles that appear on our skin: Age wrinkles, Expression wrinkles, and Dehydration wrinkles. Age wrinkles usually show in maturing skin of women aged 50 and up, depending on the amount of sun exposure to the skin. Expression wrinkles are fine lines in the skin that are accentuated by dehydration and cause Dehydration wrinkles. These fine lines can be eliminated by using intensely hydrating ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid to smooth and plump up the skin.
Hyaluronic Acid is your skin’s best friend! A product that contains hyaluronic acid can replenish the moisture that aging skin is lacking and improve the appearance of fine lines and makes the skin look smoother. The great thing about hyaluronic acid is that it can be used on all skin types, even sensitive and acne and rosacea-prone patients. It is usually found in a moisturizer that is gel or water-based.
Ditch the heavy creams and swap in a lightweight moisturizer to your skincare routine to pump up the hydration for a youthfully fresh appearance. Algae helps to soothe and moisturize the skin, and serums containing vitamins C and E target dry and dull complexions to give skin a brighter, more supple appeal.
Don’t forget to up your regimen’s level of hydration with regular moisturizing facials and weekly at-home masks. Regular facials can improve the hydration in the skin, clearing dead skin cells, oil and dirt to leave your skin rejuvenated refreshed. Masks can be done at home one to two times a week to help maintain a fresh and glowing face.
Trade granular exfoliating products or a lighter and finer enzyme exfoliator. By using an enzyme exfoliator, you are removing dead skin cells, oil, and bacteria without harming live skin cells. This reveals a glowing complexion and is an important step in your skincare routine because it leaves the skin clean and refreshed, allowing your products to perform better and penetrate deeper into the skin.
A great alternative to regular facials is regular Light Stim treatments. Light Stim helps to stimulate collagen and elastin production in the skin and eliminates fine lines wrinkles. It firms and tones the skin for youthful radiance while also minimizing the appearance of pores.
