Spring Skin Care Is in the Air: How to "Unwinterize" Your Skin! by Donna John
A lot of people are prepared to deal with the dry skin winter brings, but many don’t realize they need to “unwinterize” their skin as well. With a seasonal switch right around the corner, an esthetician from one of Chicagoland’s Massage Envy shared these tips to help you unwinterize!
- Put down the harsh exfoliate: Many people think scrubbing away the winter dryness works, but it’s really doing more harm than good. Instead, reach for a mild exfoliate to avoid red and irritated skin. Products containing salicylic acid, lactic acid and glycolic acid will help dissolve those dead skin cells.
- Ditch heavy oily lotions: Start using a lightweight oil-free moisturizer to avoid clogged pores. Moisturizers with plant oils, mineral oils, shea butter and cocoa butter are best.
- Don’t forget SPF! This really applies to all seasons, but it’s especially important as everyone starts to head back outdoors.
- Face lotion isn’t just for women. Men’s skin needs love, too, especially with the toll shaving can take on one’s face.
