Winter can be tough on our skin. The combination of cold, dry air outside and the warm, heated air inside can lead to dehydration, redness, and irritation. As the weather starts to warm up, it’s time to start thinking about how to revitalize your skin after a long, cold winter. Here are some tips to help you get your skin looking its best. 



During the winter months, dead skin cells can build up on the surface of your skin, making it look dull and lackluster. Exfoliating your skin can help remove these dead skin cells, leaving your skin looking brighter and more radiant. It’s important to be gentle when exfoliating, especially if your skin is sensitive. Look for an exfoliant that won’t cause irritation or damage to your skin. We recommend Perfect Glycolic Treatments 15% or 25%.  Glycolic acid exfoliates and increases cell turnover while aloe, bisabolol and mugwort extract soothe the skin.  The result is smoother, brighter and fresher-looking skin. 



It’s always essential to protect your skin from the sun. Spring’s UV rays can damage your skin, leading to premature aging, hyperpigmentation, and even skin cancer. Be sure to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 daily, even on cloudy days. Triple Duty Plus Sunscreen SPF 35+ is formulated with zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, a sheer tint, and vitamins E and C for broad-spectrum sun protection, an even glow and anti-aging benefits. 



If your skin has been especially dry or irritated during the winter months, it needs some repair. Look for products that contain ingredients like hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, and niacinamide to repair and protect the skin. We recommend AM Daily Moisturizer SPF 45+.  Formulated with hyaluronic acid, lactic acid, and vitamins E & B5, AM restores hydration, reduces the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles, and protects the skin from free radical damage. 



Spring is the perfect time to refresh your skincare routine. Look for products specifically formulated for your skin type and be sure to use them consistently. Incorporate an anti-aging cleanser, toner, and moisturizer into your routine, along with serums and a facial polish.  Papaya Cleanser combines salicylic acid with papaya fruit enzymes to deeply cleanse and exfoliate dull surface cells.  CE Serum is synergistically formulated with vitamins C & E and ferulic acid to protect your skin from environmental damage and reduce the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles.  And Mint Facial Polish is a highly effective polishing scrub that draws out impurities and exfoliates dead skin cells without over-drying.  


Taking care of your skin is important year-round; this is especially true during seasonal transitions. A skincare routine that hydrates, protects and exfoliates will ready your skin for the warmer months ahead. Be patient: it may take some weeks to see the results you’re looking for. With a consistent effort and the right clinical-strength products, you can achieve beautiful, healthy and revitalized skin this Spring.
