The low humidity and blasting indoor heat during the cold winter months can leave your skin feeling parched and looking less than radiant. With spring finally on its way, it’s time to get ready to bare those limbs and show a little more skin in the warmer days ahead.
Here are a few secrets from skincare expert Roseanne Warchola, medical esthetician at Vinings Surgery Center, to get your skin ready to shine under the sun!
- Exfoliate with beta hydroxy acids a few times a week to loosen the dead cells that make skin look dry and scaly.
- Immediately after cleansing and exfoliating, use a moisturizer with skin-quenching ingredients and antioxidants that protect skin cell membranes. Look for vitamins A, C and E as well as humectants like hyaluronic acid that will retain moisture and leave you with a dewy complexion.
- Use sunscreen with SPF, either in your moisturizer or makeup, every day. UVB rays are getting more powerful and are more likely than ever to cause sunburn, so don’t forget to protect your skin, particularly between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
