Spring is my favorite time of the year.  It’s the best time to renew your skincare routine. Out with the heavy creams, old makeup, and dead skin. There are many ways to get rid of that dead skin, but my favorite is our High Performance Facial where we perform a heavy duty microdermabrasion followed by a strong peel.  To achieve similar results at home use an exfoliant every other day for 2 weeks followed by an alpha beta peel pad or P50 “1970” with Mc110 as a booster, it really does the trick. I don’t generally recommend over-scrubbing and peeling, yet this time of the year it’s necessary for fresh dewy spring skin.  Switching your moisturizer and serum is appropriate as well. I prefer lighter textures such as Hydra3 Serum and Cream packed with triple hyaluronic acid which naturally occurs in our skin. It’s plumping, hydrating, and rebuilds the skin structure. For those who use hyaluronic injections like Restalyne and Juvederm, hyaluronic acid has been proven to extend the results.  Since I don’t use injectables I love this serum and cream combo for a topical pick-me-up. For my evening routine I’ve been using Corseting Serum and Polymatrix Cream.  This duo is an instant lifter. I’ve noticed smoother lines and tighter pores, it works like Botox in a bottle for me.
With all the wonderful makeup colors this season it’s hard to choose.  As far as I’m concerned anything goes like dark lipstick even reds, it just depends on the mood and the occasion.  Yet skin should be pretty and natural.  I’ve traded my usual foundation for the Unifying Cream by Valmont. It’s the ultimate tinted moisturizer for an instantaneous beauty boost!
Last but not least this time of the year the sun is really dangerous although it doesn’t feel that way. Let’s all remember to use a broad spectrum sunscreen every day!
