Mar 6, 2014 - 8:44:19 AM

( - Although sometimes it seems as if the succession of cold wintery days will never end, the truth is that the warmer, sunnier days of spring are on their way. It's time to start preparing - and not just for spring cleaning. Your skin needs a little help adjusting to the new season if you want it to stay healthy and vibrant.

When the weather gets cold we turn up the thermostat, layer on the clothing, and take hot showers. Then we head out into the cold winds, where our face and hands are exposed. These changes in temperature, which often occur several times a day, can do a number on our skin. Slough off the dry patches from winter and be more generous with the sunscreen to get your skin back in shape.

Consult the Pros

Some skin types can be harder to treat than others, especially when conditions like acne are involved. Before experimenting on yourself with a wide range of products that could be irritating to your skin, meet with an esthetician or dermatologist who can create a custom skin care regimen. Often they offer the top skin care lines and may be able to suggest cosmetic procedures that can improve the health of your skin, such as microdermabrasion or chemical peels.
