Put Some Spring Back Into Your Skincare Routine
As the weather warms up and spring arrives, it’s important to reassess your skincare routine. The changing seasons can have a big impact on your skin, and what worked for you during the colder months may not be suitable for the warmer weather. During winter, the cold air can leave your skin feeling dry and sensitive, but as spring arrives, it’s time to switch up your routine and focus on hydration and protection from the sun. As professional skin therapists we can help you determine the best products and regimen for your skin type during this transition.
Out with the Old: Exfoliation
To combat dryness and dullness after winter, it’s crucial to exfoliate your skin. This process eliminates the accumulation of dead skin cells, revealing a brighter and more radiant complexion. If your skin is normal to oily and acne prone use exfoliator like Zo Skin Health Exfoliating Cleanser, a professional-grade formula that gently polishes and brightens. For more intensive exfoliation, try Zo Skin Health Exfoliating Polish, an at-home exfoliator that utilizes Ultra-fine magnesium crystals and Vitamin C, A, and E to effectively smooth, soften, and enhance luminosity.
Lighten Up Your Moisturiser
As the seasons change, so should our skincare routine. During the winter months, our skin tends to be drier and in need of heavier moisturizers to retain moisture. However, as spring arrives and we spend more time outdoors and sweating, these heavy creams can feel greasy and uncomfortable on our skin. To combat this, it’s recommended to switch to lighter moisturizers that contain humectants like glycerin and hyaluronic acid. ZO Skin Care offers a great option with their Hydrating Créme, which is lightweight and helps restore hydration, smooth skin, and soothe redness. This cream has even been awarded the Seal of Acceptance by the National Eczema Association.
Don’t Skip The SPF
Sun protection factor (SPF) is a crucial element in any skincare routine. It not only helps to prevent skin cancer, but also protects against sun damage that can cause premature aging, including hyperpigmentation and wrinkles. It’s important to use SPF daily, even during the winter months, to maintain healthy and youthful-looking skin. The ZO® sun protection portfolio offers scientifically superior sunscreens with the broadest, most comprehensive range of sun protection available. Our advanced Triple-Spectrum Protection® shields against UVA and UVB rays, high-energy visible (HEV) light, IR-A (infrared) rays and pollution. For the most sensitive skin types and post-procedure skin you can try for ZO Skin Health Broad-Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 50 – a lightweight, clear, non-irritating mineral sunscreen. Sun Shield Tint Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Cool is perfect for all skin types and for those who want to skip the foundation.
Vitamin C To the Rescue
UV exposure can cause damage to the skin, but using Obagi Professional® Serum 20% can provide ultimate antioxidant protection and stimulate collagen production. This serum contains one of the highest percentages of Vitamin C in the Obagi Professional-C® Serum, making it efficient in protecting the skin from new radicals and UV exposure. For optimal results, use this serum each morning after cleansing, followed by Obagi Hydrate® with advanced Hydromanil™ technology to continuously release moisture to the skin and hydrate from within. To further protect your skin from UV exposure, apply a high SPF before heading outdoors.
What About the Redness
Exposure to the sun and warmer temperatures can often result in redness on our skin. However, Zo Skin Health Rozatrol offers a solution to this problem. This revolutionary redness-neutraliser contains an advanced amino acid complex that helps to restore the skin to a more radiant appearance. This anti-redness cream is intelligently formulated to help replenish hydration and support healthy skin barrier function. Additionally, the ZO-RRS²®, papain, and brassica oleracea italica extract soothe and comfort aggravated skin, resulting in an overall smooth and even complexion. This product is a saviour for that red, sensitised skin.
