Get Your Skin Glowing for Summer!

Get Your Skin Glowing for Summer!

The weather for the past few months has been all over the place, particularly in the northeast –
from near 80 degree days to rain to freezing temps all in a week. While we have to continually brace
ourselves for the weather, clothing-wise, it’s also really important to consider the havoc this can wreak
on your skin. After the dry heat and cold winds of winter, our skin can be flaky, dull, and just not at its
best. Thankfully, there are several inexpensive ways to get glowing in time for summer – in the comfort
of your own home!

First, make sure you are moisturizing daily, preferably with a formula that contains
an SPF of 15 or higher. Sun protection is important all year – not just in the dog
days of summer. If your skin is naturally oily, try a light, non-comedogenic
moisturizer that won’t clog pores. If you have very dry skin, you can go for deeper
moisturizers and may even want to invest in a night cream to keep your skin
quenched overnight. Next, pick the right cleanser for your skin; sensitive skin won’t
do well with harsh chemicals, while acne-prone skin could benefit from a cleanser with salicylic acid.
And for those of us with wrinkles or age spots, special age-defying formulas might be a good bet.

Finally, exfoliation is key to removing the dead, dull skin that winter can leave behind.
Microdermabrasion is a great technique for this and can now be done at home! For a great selection
of microdermabrasion at home products, check out online retailers like ShopNBC to read reviews and
compare products. This technique, formerly reserved for spas and salons, helps to slough away the top
layer of skin to reveal younger, fresher skin underneath. You can purchase microdermabrasion scrubs,
cleansers, or even a full kit with exfoliating wand, depending on your needs and commitment.

Whatever you choose for your skincare regimen, be sure to treat your skin wisely this spring and
