Spring has almost sprung and your skin’s needs are changing. As we move away from the dry days of winter, it’s time to focus on enhancing your spring skincare so you can shine like the sun!
At Allegro Medspa in Northern California, our aestheticians love to offer expert tips and tricks so you can feel confident in your skin. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of ways you can upgrade your spring skincare this year!
Switch to medical grade spring skincare
One major way to ramp up your spring skincare is to make the switch from over-the-counter products to medical grade ones. Over-the-counter (or OTC) products are okay, but when it comes to real results, medical grade is the way to go.
Unlike OTC products, medical grade ones are formulated to penetrate deeper than just the first layer of skin. They actually stimulate biological change in the skin, producing desired results more effectively. This is particularly beneficial for those with chronic skin conditions like acne, or even acne scarring.
For a while, getting access to medical grade skincare products was tricky, as they were mostly only available in doctor’s offices. But nowadays, you can shop on certified medspa websites for any medical grade replacements you’d like to make.
Exfoliate the winter away
During the winter months, our skin goes through a hibernation of its own. We build up dry skin, causing flakiness and dehydration. Use a medical grade exfoliator like SkinMedica AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser to cleanse away that layer of dead skin and get your skin glowing.
Change up your moisturizer
After the dryness of the cold months, and spring-cleaning exfoliation, it’s time to integrate moisturizer into your spring skincare. However, the skin needs different care during each of the seasons!
The heavy moisturizer you were using in the winter gave your skin the big gulps of hydration it needed. But for your spring skincare, you need a lighter, more absorbable moisturizer.
Something like SkinMedica Replenish Hydrating Moisturizer is awesome for springtime weather, because it helps lock in moisture without feeling heavy or oily.
You should use sunscreen all year, but when the weather warms up, it becomes even more important to protect that skin of yours! Depending on your skin type, skin tone, and sun exposure, you need different levels of protection. But a product like Alastin Hydratint ProMineral SPF 36 is a good starting point for everyday wear.
