Soothing Skincare Tips While You are On Spring Break
Are you planning a spring break getaway this year? Whether you hit the ski slopes or travel somewhere warm and sunny, make sure that your skin is well cared for. Changes in climate and routines while on vacation can take its toll on your facial skin. The good news is that you can reduce this stress by taking a few extra measures while you are on vacation. Here are some tips to protect your skin this spring break.
#1: Use Sunscreen on Your Facial Skin
We’ve had a really cold winter this year and you’ve probably spent a fair amount of time in “hibernation”. So, when you step out into the sun this spring break, it could be a real shocker! Even just a few short minutes could cause your skin to have a bad reaction, especially if it hasn’t seen much sun in months. Use a high-quality sunscreen that is at least SPF 30 on your face and wear sunglasses to protect the skin around your eyes. Be sure to reapply your sunscreen as needed, especially if you are going to be active while outside.
#2: Combat Skin Breakouts with a High-Quality Facial Cleanser
Shifting from months of freezing temperatures to a warmer climate sounds like a dream come true. However, it can throw your skin for a loop. Sensing the warm weather, your oil glands can begin producing excessive amounts of oil that can lead to breakouts. A premium grade cleanser, like Signature Skin’s Revitalizing Facial Cleanser, exfoliates your skin and inhibits the bacterial growth that can lead to a breakout.
#3: Reduce the Impact of Inflammation on Your Skin
Have you ever diligently applied sunscreen to your face, only to return to your room and discover a bright red spot? Maybe it’s your nose or a spot on your forehead. Whether your sunscreen rubbed off or you just simply missed an area on your face, the fastest way to soothe your skin and minimize the damage is with a rich, dense moisturizer. Signature Skin’s Revitalizing Moisturizer has anti-inflammatory agents that reduce the redness and heal your skin from irritations.
#4: Use Makeup to Create a Healthy Glow
Granted, the warmth really feels good this time of year, especially after brutally cold temperatures. And sunshine beaming onto your face can give you a nice tan. You may even be tempted to forego the sunscreen. Unfortunately, too much sun can also age your facial skin. While a little bit is okay, don’t overdo it. You can get the same warm, healthy glow with tinted makeup.
So, enjoy your vacation and much-needed break from the winter weather, but don’t forget to take care of yourself. Spend a few extra minutes each day soothing and protecting your skin so it looks youthful and fresh this spring break.
