Spring Clean Your Skin Care Routine

spring care routine

Spring is finally here, and that means that we can ditch all the heavy garments, grab the flip flops and head to the nearest beach. But not so fast! After the long, cold winter, your skin is probably still parched from overheating and undernourishment. The heated air, low humidity and little fresh air of winter can leave your skin dry, dull, rough and older, especially in the areas that we neglect, such as the heels, toes, knees and elbows.

Today, we discuss what you can do for your skin this spring to help it heal and to nourish it for summer ahead.

The 5 Rules of Healthy Skin Care

Here at Bradford Skin Clinic and Med Spa, we follow the 5 rules of healthy skin care.

  1. Exfoliation

Getting rid of dry, dead skin is key to a smoother, softer skin, as it provides your treatment products and moisturizer better access to the pores. However, you should avoid harsh and scratchy exfoliators.

Medical grade facial peels are performed using state-of-the-art technologically enhanced products that bring about the best results for your skin type.

However, don’t only have a medical peel in spring. You can use it throughout the year to treat scarred, wrinkled, pigmented or uneven skin tone. If your skin appears dull, stressed or tired due to hormone imbalance, acne or sun exposure, medical grade facial peels can help.

  1. Cleanse

iS Clinical – Cleansing Complex

Throughout the day, your skin is exposed to dust, dirt grime and free radicals. Microscopic particles from smoke and other forms of air pollution enter your pores. Without proper cleansing, your skin can’t breathe, which results in acne and other issues.

Twice daily, cleanse your skin with a product that is tailored to your skin type. Finding the right cleanser is key to beautiful, bright and glowing skin.

iS Clinical offers a fantastic range of products, including the Cleansing Complex with deep cleansing, anti-acneic and resurfacing properties. It prepares the skin for your treatment products. Read More about iS Clinical – Cleansing Complex.

Apply your cleanser in upward circular motions for the best deep pore cleaning results. You can use smaller motions on the more congested areas, and remember to also cleanse the décolletage area.

  1. Treat

After cleansing, your pores are open and ready to absorb the ingredients in your treatment products. Now is a good time to apply your eye cream and any products for the treatment of acne, scars, or wrinkles.

iS Clinical has a range of treatment products includes:

Youth Complex – A rapid wrinkle reduction product that offers long-term results and anti-aging benefits.

Youth Eye Complex – Reduce dark circles and puffiness, and rapidly hydrate and smooth the sensitive skin around your eyes with this product.

Active Serum – With it’s brightening, anti-acneic and anti-aging benefits, this product reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles under the eyes, as well as acne and hyperpigmentation.

  1. Hydrate

Moisturizer feeds dry and sensitive skin and spring is a good time to do hydrate. Since retinoids increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun, now is a good time to put it away.

If you’ve been using a heavy moisturizing cream during winter, you should switch it for a lotion.

iS Clinical Moisturizing Complex offers hydrating, soothing and protecting benefits for all skin types. It also covers the skin in an antioxidant-rich protective shield.

SHEALD™Recovery Balm is the best moisturizer for dry, sensitive or raw skin. It relieves the symptoms associated with dry skin and is recommended by doctors for post-ablative procedures.

  1. Protect

On top of your regular moisturizer, apply a sunscreen – no matter the weather. SPF should always be a part of your daily routine, especially if you’re spending any time outdoors.

I started going to Bradford Skin Clinic because of Alex my injecting nurse. She started there recently (but has many years of experience). It’s a beautiful and clean place with professional service. If it’s Botox or filler for my lips, Alex was always gentle and patient. I love that she is 💯% honest with me and will always stop me from making bad decisions in regards to my face! LoL!

Just had my very first ever micro-needling experience and in 24 hours utterly FANTASTIC results which will get even better over the next few weeks. Love that Jess talked me through the entire experience prior, loved that she focused in on the need areas and was diligent about her technique and maximizing the needles depth and range where appropriate. A day later my skin is smoother, pores already diminishing, fine line disappearing. I loved this treatment and highly recommend!

I got my first ever peel 3 weeks ago and started using a cleanser and moisturizer that Mia recommended to me. Within a couple of days I noticed a big difference in the way my skin looked and felt. I also HAD a lot of facial veins that I was very embarrassed by. Mia suggested a photo rejuvenation for broken capillaries and we scheduled it for the following week. I went in with a feeling like oh well let see what this can do as I had been living with this for so long I wasn’t sure anything would help. 20 minutes later about 80% was gone and within about 3 days another 10% was gone with 1 treatment! That was a week ago yesterday. I went to the open house yesterday with no make up on so I could show Mia, Ashley and Jessica what they did for me. I am so thankful and grateful. I will definitely be back soon for another treatment and continued maintenance. The clinic is beautifully decorated and spotless clean. The owner and staff are amazing women and so welcoming. I highly recommend Bradford Skin Clinic.
