10 Steps For Spring Ready Skin

Multi-ethnic group of young women: African, Asian, Indian and Caucasian.

Recently, we checked in with Dr. Lydia Evans who has some great tips on how to get our skin and face ready for spring.

10. Examine your skin care regimen
As it gets warmer, you may need a lighter moisturizer (a lotion instead of a cream), or a stronger cleanser.

9. If you do not use an exfoliator, consider starting two to three times a week.
Exfoliators  remove old skin cells which can produce a dull complexion.

8. Think about a toner.
As your skin becomes oilier, you may want to begin using a toner, or increase the frequency of use if this is already part of your routine.  Toners are helpful in removing deep oil, dirt, and make-up from pores. Use them after exercising, working outdoors, or a day in the city.

7. Get a medical grade facial from a qualified professional.
Removing stubborn blockages from clogged pores will make your skin look smoother and healthier.

6.Make sure you use cosmetics and/or sunscreens that protect against UVA and UVB rays. 
As the intensity of the sun increases, so does your risk of damage, even on a cloudy day.

5. Pay attention to your body. 
An exfoliating body wash followed by a body moisturizer will get rid of those dry flakes, making you feel smoother and softer.

4. Remember your heels. 
Thickened, discolored skin on your heels is unattractive in sandals.  A potent glycolic acid cream especially formulated to remove tough, dry skin works great.

3. Look at your cuticles.
Winter can be especially rough on hands, leaving ragged skin around the nails. Massage a moisturizing cream with lactic or glycolic acid around your cuticles twice a day.

2. Love your lips.
After the winter, their surface can be uneven with peeling and flaking.  Frequent application of lip balms is helpful.  A lip exfoliator will remove dry patches, so lipstick application will be smoother.

1.Lighten up those tell-tale brown spots. 
Some flat discolorations will improve with high quality bleaching creams; others, as well as elevated spots, may require mechanical removal. Fraxel treatments are especially helpful for this problem. Clear skin always looks fresher and more youthful.

Follow these tips and you’ll be ready in no time!
