I’ve been transitioning into my spring skin care routine over the last couple of weeks, so I thought I’d take a moment to talk about it here in case anyone was interested in this subject as I am. The reason I transition from winter products to springtime ones isn’t as much about being gradual as it is about letting my old products run out before I replace them. I want to be kind to my complexion, but I don’t want to be wasteful. Products aren’t cheap!
Anti-aging laser products and spa services seem to be popping up everywhere I look lately, and I confess that I’m absolutely fascinated by it. In the past, I’ve written about how I’ve dabbled in light therapy for skin. Laser is a whole new level though. I’m not certain I’d go that far. I’m just not that obsessed with my wrinkles, fine lines and the rest to want to do much more than great skin care and home treatments as well as the occasional splurge on a facial at a day spa.
Cold, windy, dry weather can make winter skin care for seniors a particular challenge. Since our skin is more sensitive than it was when we were younger, the air conditions both inside and outside can lead to itching and flaking and that can become cracking and bleeding. This opens the door to more problems, including infection. The good news is that it’s all avoidable in most circumstances.
