Great Skin in Every Season: Skin Care Tips for Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter

Winter, spring, summer, and fall: Each season is different and your skincare routine should be too. Your skin, especially your delicate facial skin, is constantly exposed to the elements, braving both the summer’s heat and the winter’s icy chill. Give your skin the care it needs to thrive during every season with these seasonal skin care tips.

Spring- A Time to Renew

skin-care-tips-for-every-seaonThe cold, dry winter air is hard on skin. As the temperatures start to rise, sloughing off dead cells can renew and refresh and your skin for spring. You can exfoliate gently at home, or if you want maximum rejuvenation, come in for a microdermabrasion treatment. Microdermabrasion can improve the appearance of dull skin, uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, blackheads, and even sun damage.

Spring is also a great time for injectable treatments.  You’ll be fully recovered in time for summer from a springtime Botox treatment and will look your best (even without makeup) as you hit the beaches and the pool this summer.

Summer- A Time to Cut Back

Summer is hot and humid. The sweaty summer weather can wreak havoc on your skin, leading to breakouts. Combat these with a good cleansing routine. Use a gentle cleanser twice a day and always moisturize after your cleanse.

Don’t forget the sunscreen. During the summer we often spend extra time outdoors. Sunburns aren’t just unattractive, they also lead to sun damage, premature wrinkling, and an increased skin cancer risk. Wear sunscreen any time you head outside, even if you don’t think you’ll get burnt.

Fall- Refresh and Rejuvenate

As the warm summer temperatures start to cool down, it is easy to forget the sunscreen, but you shouldn’t. Sunscreen is important all year round, including the fall. Don’t skimp on moisturizing either; your skin will need extra moisture to cope with the change in temperature and humidity from summer.

Many people often have a little extra time between the craziness of summer vacations and the rush of the winter holidays. Use the fall to pamper yourself and look your best. Come in for an IPL or Fraxel laser treatment.

Winter- Take Care of Yourself

The hustle and bustle of the holiday season can make it hard to stick to a winter skin care routine, but if you want perfect skin for your Christmas pictures, you need to remember to put yourself first. Moisturize often, using a good quality moisturizer for your skin type. Skip the hot showers and hot baths as these can further dry out already struggling skin.
