5 Tips to Help You Spring Forward into Great Skin This Spring!

New seasons can be symbolic, but they can also be great reminders to take a look at our habits and adjust our routines to the coming changes. Great skin should be a goal for every season, but for many the cold weather and winds in winter can leave the skin dry, damaged, and in need of some help. Here are some ways that we suggest springing into the new season with healthy and beautiful skin, as well as how Dermatology Center of Acadiana can assist you in doing so.

Schedule a Skin Check this Spring

Monthly self-skin exams are critical for early detection of changes to moles and areas of the skin. Get into the habit if doing your monthly exam on the first day of the month. Additionally, an annual skin exam is recommended for all adults who have had skin cancer or have risk factors such as extensive history of sun damage, tanning bed use or family history of skin cancer, with some warranting more frequent checks. The start of a new season is a great time to schedule your appointment each year. You can schedule your skin exam with Dermatology Center of Acadiana by calling (337) 235-6886.

Refresh Your Skin with a Chemical Peel for Great Skin

Cold winter air can cause dull, dry, lifeless skin. The beginning of a new season is the perfect time to treat yourself to a chemical peel to rejuvenate and refresh your face. At Dermatology Center of Acadiana, we offer the Vi Peel to our patients. The Vi Peel is a non-invasive approach to healthier looking skin with minimal downtime. It treats areas of hyperpigmentation, acne, wrinkles, and can bring new life to dry winter skin. Spring clean your face, neck and chest, or hands this season with a chemical peel at DCA.

Smooth Your Neck with Revision Nectifirm Advanced

Hiding your neck with turtlenecks and scarves may be appropriate in Winter, but as Spring emerges, it is time to stop neglecting the neck and treat the signs of moderate to advanced aging with Revision Skincare’s Nectifirm Advanced. Nectifirm Advanced works to enhance the skin’s own antioxidant system with it’s Smart Antioxidant Technology. It smooths the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the neck and décolletage, as well as reduces the appearance of rough, crepey skin. To help you transition into Spring, we are offering 20% off of Nectifirm Advanced through March 31, 2018! Please call (337) 235-6886 to purchase yours.

Complimentary Make-Up Consultations for Maintaining Great Skin

You would not wear last season’s sweaters into the Spring, so why use last season’s colors on your face? Dermatology Center of Acadiana offers complimentary make-up consultations with our aestheticians, and is proud to carry the line of Glo Skin Beauty Make-Up.This mineral based make-up offers continuous coverage and a powerful antioxidant blend with rich, gorgeous colors. Update your palette this Spring with a Glo Skin Beauty make-up consultation at DCA in Lafayette, Louisiana.

Protect Your Skin with Daily Sunscreen

We already know that you wear sunscreen daily, regardless the season, and wore it every day this past winter. Right? We hope so! While sunscreen is super important year-round, it is even more important to make sure that you are using it daily and re-applying often when you will be spending extra time outdoors, like in the gorgeous days of Spring. At Dermatology Center of Acadiana, we offer a variety of medically formulated sunscreens to protect your skin year round. From EltaMD and Revision Skincare, to Obagi and SkinMedica, we offer a full range of face and body sun protection. You can also check out these tips for what to look for in a sunscreen.
