Adapting skincare routines based on the seasons is important, especially when transitioning from the cold, dry air of winter to the warmer temperatures of spring and summer. The skincare specialists at our Fort Worth, TX, med spa help both women and men prepare their skin for summer with tips and nonsurgical treatments.
Skin Care Tips for Spring
Creating a refreshed complexion that’s ready for the longer days of spring and summer begins with making sure your daily skincare regimen includes medical-grade skincare products. The quality of ingredients included in these products keeps your skin healthy and looking more youthful.
Other important skincare tips to remember this spring include:
Exfoliation: Dead skin cells tend to accumulate during the winter, clogging pores and leaving the skin looking dull and flaky. When we talk about spring cleaning for our skin, exfoliation is the first step. Dermaplaning gently exfoliates the skin, removing debris and “peach fuzz.” An aesthetic specialist carefully scrapes the skin with a scalpel without breaking the skin, using a motion similar to shaving. We recommend combining Dermaplaning with HydraFacial® treatments to maximize the results. A HydraFacial not only exfoliates but also extracts impurities and hydrates the skin.
Skin rejuvenation: After ridding your skin of winter’s buildup of debris, laser skin treatments such as Halo or NanoLaserPeel gently resurface the skin. Halo is a hybrid laser our specialists can customize to be as aggressive as a patient wants. Any laser skin treatments should be scheduled so that the skin has enough time to renew before the more intense summer sun arrives. You can see the types of results produced by laser skin treatments at our Fort Worth med spa by viewing our gallery of before-and-after photos.

Transition to different moisturizers: Thick, heavy moisturizers often used during winter months tend to create a slick, greasy appearance. Switching to a lighter, water-based moisturizer helps keep your skin healthy and hydrated and should be applied every night.
Emphasize the importance of sun protection: Even though everyone should apply sunscreen daily 365 days a year, it’s sometimes hard to remember in the dead of winter. Spring is the time to renew that habit, starting with tossing out old products that have lost their effectiveness. Sun protection extends beyond using sunscreen; wear wide-brimmed sun hats and light, long sleeves to protect your skin from long hours in the direct sunlight.
Don’t forget eye protection: Not only does wearing quality sunglasses protect the health of your eyes, but it also prevents squinting, which is one of the main reasons for developing crow’s feet.
We’re looking forward to spending much more time outside than we did last year, and taking care of our skin is one of the top priorities.
