Getting Your Skin Spring Ready
I’ve had it with winter. I know it’s technically spring, but did anyone tell the Weatherman that? I might have heard the term “windchill” in the forecast this weekend. No. I say to you, no.
Since I have already decided that the Weatherman isn’t the boss of me, I’m ready for a springtime glow. I asked well-known skincare expert and N.Y.C. Dermatologist Patricia Wexler M.D. for some Spring Beauty Tips. Here’s what the doctor ordered:
Easy Peasy: Most women are frustrated with complicated skincare regimens, nor do they have a lot of time to dedicate to multi-process programs. What do you feel are the essential products a woman needs for a good regimen for spring?
Patricia Wexler M.D.: Ideal daily care is based on four steps: cleanse, exfoliate, restore, moisturize.
EP: Is there an essential skincare product, other than sunscreen, that every woman should be using as part of an anti-aging skincare program, especially in the warmer months?
PW: Our skin rebuilds and repairs itself as we sleep. Without environmental factors to ward off, skin is able to speed up its natural renewal process and absorb ingredients. This is why nighttime is the best time for active treatment. That’s why I highly recommend an anti-aging night cream.
