How To Get Rid of Dull, Lackluster Skin And Reboot Your Skin For The Spring
March 14th, 2013
First, if you haven’t had a chance for a facial during the winter, then, this is probably the right time to walk yourself to one of the best day spas in NYC. Celebrity facialist Joanna Vargas revs up your spring skincare routine with one of her vibrant, and incredibly sought after facials.
I promise that after you get one of her spa treatments, you’ll fall in love with her and your face will thank you for the introduction. And if you don’t live in New York, follow her advice below. She’s never wrong.
Hydrate Your Winter Skin
Hands down the biggest concern we face during winter is dehydration and whats left after a long winter is usually, dead, dull and lackluster skin. Lucky, there are plenty of ways to reboot your skin and you can start with an oxygen facial to bring back life to your complexion.
Another simple way to hydrate your skin is to use a facial oils as they are proven to moisturize better then most creams on the market today. These facial oils are nourishing and provide strong barriers against the harsh environment which is still cold. Joanna Vargas has created the perfect blend of oils and at the core of her Rejuvenating Serum is argan oil.
Other face oils on the market if you prefer something different than what Ms. Vargas has to offer are: Janesce Lavender Facial Oil, Josie Maran Argan Oil and Jurlique Skin Balancing Face Oil. Also, you can ask your nutritionist to see if vitamin E is something you can take internally to help combat dry skin and you can also break a capsule open and add it to your moisturizer for extra oomph.
Exfoliate That Old Worn Winter Skin
In addition to hydrating your skin you will also need to make sure that you are exfoliating the dry skin cell buildup that leaves us looking dry, flaky and feeling tight. There are so many exfoliating products on the market and you might be confused as to which one is best. My advice is to go gentle and is best to seek the advice of a skincare professional as this can eliminate a lot of the guess work and save you time but best of all money.
The Joanna Vargas Exfoliating Mask can be used as a mechanical abrasion or leave it on for 15 minutes, in either case the results will be amazing, radiant and soft skin.
Use it twice a week and just because is so good, don’t over do it as too much of a good thing can over strip your beautiful skin.
After a long Winter You can be Deprived Of Vitamin D
Although we are told to guard ourselves from the sun, even in the winter, we still need a good dose of vitamin D which you get from sunlight. So always use sun protection as a day on the ski slopes is the same as a day on the beach — both sand and snow reflect the sun and you need to protect yourself accordingly.
However, not having enough vitamin D can give you the winter blues and even though the warm weather approaches, it is still not here, so you should eat plenty of foods that provide this essential vitamin. Eat plenty of Vitamin D rich foods like sock-eye salmon, other cold water fish, shiitake mushrooms and eggs.
Get a Professional Facial As This Is The Fastest Way to Get Your Skin in Shape
A professional facial will provide many of the answers to your past winter time woes. During the course of a facial, you will receive a deep cleanse and exfoliation with professional products to alleviate dry skin buildup. The facial massage done in many facials works wonders on increasing circulation and rejuvenating the complexion. A good hydrating facial will finish with a treatment mask that infuses the skin with high performance ingredients and actives your skin and eliminates the dullest skin tone.
