Spring Into Action
30 March 2016
Whether you’re defining “spring” as the season between winter and summer, or as a sudden leap or jump towards something, there’s no denying that these Spring months are the perfect time to revamp your life. Between cleaning out your closet, your living room, your storage unit or even that one bedside drawer you keep throwing everything into, it’s easy to forget about your skincare routine. Here are Tribeca MedSpa’s favorite ways to rejuvenate for Springtime!
Start Your Morning Off Right: One of the simplest things to do in the morning, yet somehow also the hardest, is to drink a full glass of water right when you wake up. Not only does this rehydrate your body after a good night’s sleep, but it also leaves you feeling more refreshed, boosting your body’s natural energy. Many people don’t realize that this also kick-starts your metabolism, preparing it for the rest of the day to come. Try adding some lemon to your water for even more benefits, like boosted immunity and anti-inflammation.
Rose Water: There’s no better time to start using this essential than right now. Spring’s inconsistent weather conditions can often leave skin feeling dry, clogged and dull. Rose water’s hydrating and soothing properties are perfect for this time of year, whether used as a refreshing mid-day pick-me-up or as an antibacterial toner. (Stay tuned for an upcoming blog post all about the wonders of rose water. Warning: it’s addictive!)
Antioxidant: Applying an antioxidant is one of the most commonly overlooked steps in a skin care routine, but easily one of the most important. Using a serum with Vitamin C every morning can lighten, brighten and tighten the skin. And the benefits don’t stop there. One such as SkinCeutical’s Phloretin CF will not only prevent future sun damage, but it will also help combat and correct existing damage, perfect for preparing your skin for the upcoming summer months. SkinCeutical’s CE Ferulic helps promote collagen production revealing a youthful complexion, while protecting skin from environmental aging.
Dermaplane: Dermaplane, dermaplane, dermaplane! One of our top treatments, dermaplaning, is excellent on its own or combined with other services (like a hydrating facial, laser treatment, or even a chemical peel). Dermaplaning manually exfoliates any dead skin cells and ‘peach fuzz’ on the surface of the skin, revealing a glowing, smooth complexion. Dermaplaning not only allows products to penetrate deeper, but it also aids in a more flawless application of makeup− perfect for a fresh, new you!
