Seasons Change: Preparing your skin for summer.

Uhmmm, Is your spring skincare routine ready yet?! As the seasons change, so does your skin. Here's a few tips and MUST haves to get your skin summer ready this spring!

Skincare has become the most intriguing and well-talked about topic lately. It's a billion-dollar industry that everyone wants a part of. As a result, you will find several hundreds of guidelines, regimens, and products for skincare. Not all are correct or effective.

Skin care is not a luxury. It's a necessity.

Despite all this hype, there's a few valid points that could differentiate an effective skincare routine from a trash one. The easiest way to figure it out--- Call your aesthetician. If you don't have one, get one expeditiously or just check the active ingredients on products before investing your money on it.

A few important things to know before buying products:

Exfoliation can brighten your skin and promote the absorption of topical skincare products, making them more effective. Knowing the difference between physical and manual exfoliation is a must.

  • Physical exfoliating agents can damage the skin cells and skin barrier if used incorrectly.

  • Blood vessels in the facial area are so delicate that even slight pressure can ruin and damage them, leading to bruising and discoloration.

  • Facials and scrubs can unintentionally damage the skin surface

It's highly recommended by licensed aestheticians and dermatologists to use a nonabrasive exfoliant like a AHAs and BHAs. Always use sunscreen after exfoliating your skin.

Toner are one of the most luxurious and eye-catching skincare step. Several toners are available in the market, which claims to be beneficial for the skin. However, the composition of toners includes a vital ingredient—alcohol. Regular use of alcohol can damage the skin pH or barrier, giving entry to microorganisms. So, don't go all crazy with the toner. However, instead of the toners, you can use organic rose water or face essences whenever your skin needs a pick me up!

As per the internet videos, DIYs are the cheapest and easiest way to make skincare products but some kitchen ingredients are more damaging to the skin than chemicals. For

instance, never apply lemon and baking soda directly to your skin. These products can disturb your skin pH level and cause breakouts. Instead of focusing on DIYs, invest in clinically proven or professional grade products to target your skin concerns.

It might seem alluring to use multiple-step and multi-product skincare, but the reality is

opposite to it. In the case of skincare, less is always more. So the fewer products you use religiously, the more beneficial it can be. Just focus on keeping a few vital products in your fall routine:

1. Cleanser

2. Exfoliator (2-3x a week)

3. Mask (optional)

4. Moisturizer (Based on your skin condition)

5. Face essence

6. Sunscreen

These six products are more than enough for you to start your journey to healthy glowing skin. Never invest in high-end products without having them prescribed or reviewed by a professional. Not all skin conditions are alike. Therefore, it's essential to know your skin first and then invest in professional grade products. Click here to book a skinanalysis at Studio Skinrx! See ya soon!
