Spring is on its way, but is your skin ready? Winter’s harsh winds and dry air wreak havoc on skin—and if you’re not careful, damaged skin will persist throughout the year. Luckily, there are some new ways to revive your skin and keep it looking fresh all spring long.
While gentle cleansing and moisturizing are fine for maintaining skin health, medical-grade skin treatments are what is needed to erase difficult winter-induced skin problems. The best professional in-office treatments can also help you get results much faster. So invest in your skin’s health this spring, and enjoy looking more healthy and beautiful for years to come.
Let Fire and Ice Transform Your Skin
It might seem curious that combining heat and cold could beautify winter skin. Actually, this specialized combination of facials, patented by iS Clinical, can dramatically brighten skin and give you a healthy glow as spring arrives.
First, the “fire” resurfacing mask is applied. It contains glycolic acid, citric acid, vitamin B3, antioxidants, and other powerful ingredients that cause a slight tingling sensation. It has a subtle cinnamon scent that will remind you of the comforts of winter.
Next, the “ice” component features a rejuvenating mask that cools the skin and offers a refreshing change from the previous warming sensations. The mask includes hyaluronic acid, aloe vera gel, green tea extracts and other natural extracts that cool the skin like a spring breeze. Together, this Fire and Ice specialized treatment will make your skin feel lighter and brighter.
Choose an Enzyme Treatment to Reduce Dead Skin
Shed the winter skin doldrums with an enzyme treatment. This important step to a fresh face removes the dead skin cells that have built up all winter. Enzyme treatments reduce peeling skin, which is especially important if you’ve been spending time outdoors. It’s also a great add-on to many facial rejuvenation treatments. Ask our CPS skincare professionals which of your other treatments could benefit from an enzyme boost.
Use Pharmaceutical Grade Skincare Products At Home
If you’ve been using makeup counter moisturizers and cleansers at home, upgrading to pharmaceutical-grade skincare products can make a huge difference. When you nurture your skin daily with advanced products, you’ll have better skin year-round. CPS offers medically proven skincare that can maintain your skin’s natural pH, encourage exfoliation, and effectively protect the skin from UVB and UVA rays. Let us personalize your home skincare routine with products that can handle your skin’s special needs.
Find a Skincare Professional You Love and See Them Regularly
Technically, this isn’t a treatment, but our last idea may be the most important one of all. It’s so important, it should in fact be your first step: find a skincare professional you can trust and consult with them on a regular basis. You’ll learn which treatments are truly right for you and avoid wasting money on the wrong products. Periodic check-ins will keep your skin health on track. Once you’ve found someone you like, it’s wise to stick with them as they will get to know your skin and see how it behaves throughout the seasons. They’ll get to be your skin’s best friend and anticipate what it needs ahead of time, helping to keep your skin beautiful year round.
Every one of our skincare patients gets special attention, so if you’re in the Washington, DC, Northern Virginia, or Maryland area, schedule an appointment with CPS’ knowledgeable staff. We can help you discover new ways to care for your skin and recommend treatments that will get you ready for spring!
