Spring Into Glowing Skin
While spring is in the air and summer is right behind, most of us are probably focusing on Spring break, prom, graduation, wedding plans and summer vacation. Chances are spa visits are not a main priority right now. However, you can still stay on track with your skin care goals and keep your skin looking picture perfect for all the upcoming special events. Now is not the time to get aggressive in the treatment room with harsh treatments and chemical peels so let's talk about proactively guiding you down the road to skin care success and how to incorporate more superficial and safe professional options that won't leave your skin peeling, and vulnerable to the additional UV exposure you will inevitably encounter this time of year.
The following is a 3 month skin care plan spelling out beneficial treatments and homecare protocols.
MONTH 1 – Professional Treatment
Kick start your Spring and Summer Radience Series with a professional Enbrightenment Facial by Avedathat is designed to give your skin a brighter, more even skin tone as well as skin luminosity and clarity. Together with our Blueberry Smoothie it will give a nice healthy polish to your skin while our Pomegranate Treatment will deliver a healthy dose of antioxidants to nourish and support your skin. Additionally, the L-Lactic Acid from this treatment will encourage safe, healthy cell turnover, while hydrating and brightening your skin.
MONTHS 1, 2 & 3 – Home Care
To maintain clarity and luminosity to your skin and to reduce and repair hyperpigmentation during these coming months, now is the time to change your home care regimen to the Aveda Enbrightenment System which consist of the Brightening Cleanser, Brightening Treatment Toner, Brightening Correcting Serum, Brightening Correcting Lotion or Creme as well as the Brightening MassageMasque. I also suggest adding our new anti-aging Radiance lotion that is packed with Trehelose, a super hydrating ingredient known as the “sugar of life”. It helps to deliver hydration to the skin and contains mica which brings instant radiance to the skin. And of course we can't forget the tons of antioxidants and impressie growth factors that this product has to offer.
All of these products can be used daily for proper skin maintenance and continual use of these home care products will maintain the results of Professional Skin Care Treatments while keeping the skin healthy.
Pure Enzymes is another once-a-week product must have that will digest dead skin cells left on the surface of the skin, while promoting good circulation resulting in a healthy glow.
Of course no spring and summer skin care regimen is complete without the use of a professional sun protectant. SkinCeuticals sunscreen products containing Zinc Oxide are medical grade sunscreens designed for the serious minded individual who knows the dangers and damage that ultraviolet rays can cause to the skin.
Schedule your “rebound facials” with your aesthetician now for August or September so that when your fun in the sun has ended you can get back on track with your regular maintenance facials to get your skin glowing again just in time for the holidays.
