It is time to head Back-to-School!
The new routine and busy schedule is a big change from the laid back days of summer. Here are some tips for keeping your skin healthy and fit with all the new activity.
Shed the Tan: Even with the use of sunscreen and protective clothing, it is possible you got a tan and now are left with a dull, uneven texture as it wears off. Exfoliate by getting a facial or using a facial scrub such as Dermalogica’s Skin Prep Scrub or Clear Start Pore Control Scrub to remove built up of dead skin cells.
Deal with Your Acne: Hormonal changes, especially in the teenage years, can send the oil glands into overdrive and cause black heads, white heads and acne. Start school with a clear and fresh face by cleansing your skin twice a day. This will help keep pores clear and open. Come in for complementary consult to help choose the right cleanser for your skin type.
Regulate your Diet: If you spent the summer diet with fair foods, barbecues and vacation foods, now is a good time to return to your normal skin healthy diet. Skip oily, sugary, fatty foods and refined carbs and opt for fruits, vegetables, leafy greens and lean proteins.
Avoid skin infections : Dorm living and the return of team sports in the fall increases your risk of contagious skin infections. Wash hands frequently and try to keep shared surfaces, sporting equipment and common areas clean and disinfected.
