Now that winter is finally coming to an end, it’s time to put away the protective creams that shield against the winter dryness. With spring on the horizon, you can look forward to freshening up your skin to match the beauty of the season. Here are some tips on how to best take care of your skin this spring.

The ABCs of Skin Care

It’s important to remember the ABCs of skin care and to adhere to them as best you can. This will ensure your skin will be at its best today and in the future. The ABCs refer to vitamin A, Broad spectrum sunscreen, and vitamin C.

Using a vitamin A cream will help you maintain healthy skin. The vitamin A activates the natural exfoliation process of your skin. It’s a proven way to prevent natural aging as well as aging causes by sun exposure.

Protect your skin with a minimum SPF 30 broad spectrum sunscreen. You should wear sunscreen on a daily basis, not just on hot sunny days when you’re lounging at the beach. Sunscreen plays an important role in the fight against aging and skin cancer. Reapply broad spectrum sunscreen every two hours or after swimming.

Applying a topical vitamin C serum to your skin each day will protect it from free radical damage. It also has the added benefit of protecting it from the sun. Finally, vitamin C stimulates collagen synthesis.
