Embrace Spring in Fargo: Essential Skin Care Tips for the Changing Season

When Spring finally arrives, you may be ready to enjoy the sunshine, spend time outdoors, and put the winter blues behind you, but after a harsh winter, it’s important to show your skin some extra TLC, preparing it for the summer months ahead. At Altaire Clinic, our medical professionals have put together a list of essential skincare tips that will rejuvenate your skin and bring out its natural glow.

Whether you suffer from oily skin, flaky skin, or you have delicate skin, it's important to make changes to your skin care regimen to prepare for hotter weather and protect your skin from damage. After several months of exposing your skin to dehydrating, hot indoor air, and cold harsh outdoor air, your skin could use some extra attention and care. By protecting and nourishing your skin and preparing it for warmer weather, certain environmental factors, sun exposure, and humidity, you can ensure you look your best as you enjoy the warmer weather that lies ahead. Your spring skincare regimen should be based on your skincare goals, skin type, and age. 

Stay Hydrated

For radiant skin, it's always important to drink plenty of water and use hydrating skincare products. The skin works as a natural barrier that protects you from a wide range of harmful elements found in the environment. Keeping your skin hydrated will make you look more youthful, well-rested, and fresh. Additionally, dehydrated skin is more prone to cracking and breaking. If you’re not sure whether you’re well-hydrated, do a pinch test. If you’re dehydrated, your skin will remain tented after you pinch it. Keep in mind that dry skin and dehydrated skin are two different things, however they can occur at the same time.

To improve your skin’s hydration, steer clear of baths, hot showers, over-cleansing, and harsh cleaners. Use lightweight moisturizers, and skincare products that contain hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid. A naturally occurring substance in the skin, hyaluronic acid keeps the skin hydrated even if the skin is exposed to the sun for a prolonged period.

Put Sleep First

One of the biggest secrets to healthy skin is getting enough hours of sleep. As we sleep, the skin can rest and repair damage that occurs during the day as a result of environmental and other stressors. Consistent rest is important for a glowing, healthy complexion. However, there are other practices that you can implement to improve your sleep skincare routine to help your skin achieve its healthiest state. By following a nightly skincare routine that includes cleansing, applying serum, and moisturizing, combined with plenty of rest, you can wake up with a fresh, glowing, healthy complexion.

Always Use Sunscreen

The easiest and best way to protect your skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun is to always apply sunscreen. Consistent and regular use of sunscreen can protect you from premature aging, skin cancer, and sunburns. Applying sunscreen should be part of your daily skincare routine and should be used on your face and all other parts of your body that are exposed to the sun. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen that can protect your skin against UVB and UVA radiation. Wear sunscreen even on cloudy days and apply it thirty minutes before you head outdoors.

Use Trusted Skin Care Products

Just like our wardrobe, skincare routines should change with the seasons. During the colder months, skin tends to be dull and dried out due to indoor heating and cold outdoor temperatures. However, in the spring, the skin begins to produce more sweat and oils, which can lead to breakouts and clogged pores. By using trusted skincare products you can keep your skin looking healthy, and radiant, and balance the skin’s oil production.

Look for products that contain hydrating ingredients. It’s important to use a good quality heavy moisturizer that can keep the skin hydrated without making it oily.

Be sure to incorporate antioxidants into your skincare routine. Antioxidants will protect your skin from UV rays and other environmental stressors that can cause pigmentation and premature aging.

Always use sun protection to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Use a sunscreen with at least SPF 30.
