Spring Clean Your Skin!
1. Know Your Skin-Type
Spring is finally here! Spring-Cleaning Season is upon us! Out with winter stuff and in with a new fresh youthful looking-&-feeling you. As a first step to transition your skin from Winter to Spring our professional team at Laser Genesis (LG) start with a Free LG Clinical Assessment of your actual skin type and its immediate and future needs.
You might know what your general skin type is – dry, combination, or oily – but there are multiple other factors that are unique to your specific skin type and status that require a more focused assessment, which our skin specialists can provide, in order to help you optimize its health this Spring and year-long.
Once you clearly understand the actual specificities of your skin, together we can administer the proper unique treatments and tips you need to Spring-Clean Your Skin-Care Regimen, and to help you to boost it and maintain its radiance throughout the year.
2. Purge & Clean
Toss any skin products and cosmetics that have reached or exceeded the expiry date, as they can harbour microbes and bacteria and can be harmful to your skin. Certain products such as mascara that is older than 3 months, creams or cosmetics that have changed consistency, colour and/or smell, sunscreens older than one year.
Wash all your make-up sponges and brushes thoroughly on a weekly basis and let them dry completely. It is wise to invest in high-quality retractable brushes that you can use on-the-go and during travel.
3. Exfoliate to Rejuvenate
Winter leaves your skin dry and flaky. Spring is the perfect time to exfoliate in order to rejuvenate your skin. Slough off the old flaky skin you were hiding behind layers of clothing and revive your skin. A combination of Self-Exfoliation Home Remedies combined with LG’s Skin-Specific Exfoliation Treatments and Specialized Exfoliation Product Lines will transform and revamp your skin’s vibrance from head to toe.
4. Eat to Glow
The mutual effect of the different elements of the human being on each other and on one’s general health was known since Antiquity. The famous Greek philosopher Plato evoked this notion in his proverb “The part can never be well unless the whole is well.” Spring is body detox time! Whereas it is almost impossible, if not entirely so, to eat perfectly natural unprocessed food all the time, your health can greatly benefit from a Spring detox. It is time purge the toxins and prepare for the warm season with super Spring foods, a couple of which are (see below):
Citrus Fruits. All citrus fruits are alkaline in their natural fresh state, and they are packed with a powerful antioxidant: Vitamin C. A glass of hot water with a lemon wedge or even the juice of half a medium-sized lemon or a lime in the morning cleanses and alkalizes your body. Eating a grapefruit, clementine, orange or mandarine daily can contribute to cleansing your colon and and prevent cancer.
Cruciferous Vegetables. Broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage are popular among cruciferous vegetables. In addition to their powerful effect on preventing cancer, they boost liver-detoxifying enzymes and their high fibre content cleanses your colon by naturally stimulating the the elimination process.

Lighten-Up! Whether you have oily, combination, or dry skin, it is wise to switch to a lighter moisturizer. Higher temperatures result in oilier skin for most, if not all skin-types. If you are still using a thick winter moisturizer that suits your skin condition and type and you wish to finish it rather than waste it, you can lighten it up by mixing it with a couple of orange blossom or rosewater drops and shaking it well in order to homogenize its consistency.
Screen to Expose. The brighter the sunshine and the warmer the temperature, the lighter the clothes. This requires you to arm yourself with enough high quality high-SPF UVA and UVB sunscreen to protect your skin, especially in warmer climates, and to make sure you reapply your sunscreen regularly to avoid sunburn, skin damage and aging. Remember to always be very vigilant with your sunscreen regimen, not just in warm weather, but year-round.
Flow Like A River. A drop of water in a river never stagnates. It keeps on flowing or can even evaporate or condense back into the river. So should you flow through the day gracefully, always conscious of being active and resting enough. Spring is an open invitation to explore the outdoors, go for hikes, walks, canoe, kayak, or even rock climb if you are up to it. Even if your lifestyle confines you to oscillate between home and office, make time and room for a fun physical activities such as dance, yoga, bowling, a half-hour daily walk. Fun activities increase your metabolic activity, tones your muscles, ultimately relax you, improves your creative intellectual activity, and causes your skin to sweat and rid you of toxins. After a your post workout or activity shower your skin is all refreshed. What a great feeling!
