Skincare is essential in the spring
April 21, 2011
It’s that time of year to change out the clothes in the closet and start spending more time outside. During this time, it's important to remember that changes in temperature and air quality can have a serious effect on skin, according to NY1, a 24-hour news channel in New York City.
One dermatologist told the news source that people with skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema or rosacea may experience a flare up during the shift in seasons. Additionally, the warmer temperatures may cause the skin to create more oils, which is why a microdermabrasion treatment can be beneficial.
"Remove all the dead skin cells," aesthetician Marlene Ramoy told the news provider. "You have manual exfoliation, you have mechanical exfoliation, and you have chemical exfoliation. Microdermabrasion is more of a mechanical exfoliation."
Experts also urge individuals to make sure they protect their skin when heading outside by putting on plenty of sunscreen, even if you don't plan on spending too much time exposed to direct light.
Sunglasses can also help prevent crow's feet. Lines around the eye can be treated with injectable facial fillers or a neurotoxin like Botox, according to The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
