Best Ways to Refresh Your Skincare Routine For Spring 2017
“After a harsh winter, your skincare regiment may need a bit of a pick me up,” says Dr. Roz Kamani, who specializes in professional Medical Aesthetic treatments and services.
“As the seasons change, environmental stress is often clearly reflected on the skin. People change their clothes, shoes, and makeup in the spring, but curiously enough many people stick with the same skin care routine, and this really doesn’t make sense,” says Dr. Kamani.
In the winter, many people opt for an extremely moisturizing cream that replenishes what the wind and cold weather strips away. However, in the spring these formulas can leave the skin greasy and clog pores. Lighter formulas such as Daily Moisture by SkinCeuticals are recommended because they provide hydration and nourishment, without leaving behind a greasy residue.
A good exfoliate is a must to liven up a dull, wintry complexion, but beware of rough products that can tear or irritate the skin. Many exfoliants feature ingredients such as walnut shells or apricot pits, and this is a no-no, particularly if you have torn capillaries. Instead, Dr. Kamani suggests exfoliation serums like SkinCeuitcals Retexturing Activator — a revolutionary resurfacing product that uses patented technology to promote proper exfoliation without irritating delicate skin.
Skin defence is a year-round necessity, but as people start to spend more time outside, it may by necessary to increase the SPF.
“Choosing the correct sunblock can be difficult. The face is more sensitive, so what works on the body may not work on the face.It’s important to choose a formula that provides effective protection from photo aging,” explains Dr. Kamani. “At Kitsilano Medical Aesthetic Clinic, we have a range of products that provide a high level of broad spectrum sun protection with chemical-free UV filters. There are many formulations suitable for daily use, and we’ll be glad to help you choose what works best for your unique skin type.”
