Exercise That Skin Care!

                                                         

We’ve all been hibernating due to the weather we most recently survived through. Now with the sun shining there is spring cleaning and outdoor activities! You might be taking care of those errands…but are you taking proper care of your skin?

We all know daily exercise is the best way to stay in shape. It rids your body of impurities and helps prevent disease and ageing. But if you don’t properly clean your skin before and after you exercise, you may be fighting a battle against yourself. Always use a good cleanser, toner and moisturizer prior to and following any physical activities.

Face it: a good moisturizer is your protection against dehydration. Depending on the type of physical activity, the type of moisturizer may change. Go with an oil free moisturizer such as our Microcare Replenish when you are engaging in activities that stimulate excessive perspiration or for outdoor summer sports. In the winter, sports such as skiing and snowboarding require a heavier moisturizing cream.

Treat yourself to regular facials. It may seem like a luxury treatment, but it is recommended by our estheticians to have monthly customized facials. For people who exercise regularly, regular exfoliation, deep pore cleansing, and hydration are essential. So book your monthly appointment today!

Sensitive skin? Cooling down with cold water isn’t what to do – allow your body a cool down period first. Use our Elizabeth Grady Sensitivity Protection Crème. Then, treat yourself to hot tubs, saunas, and steam rooms to prevent any increased sensitivity in the skin from heat. Who knew pampering was so good for you?

Make sure you drink plenty of water to replace any fluids lost during physical activity and take extra care against UV exposure with SPF 30 to prevent the formation of wrinkles, age spots, and skin cancers. For younger looking skin, try the Elizabeth Grady Hydrosurge Crème to correct the appearance of imperfections. Don’t forget your lips! Use SPF lip balm during the day and your eye cream on your lips at night.

Welcome the weather with the proper skin care to keep your body and skin as young as you feel. Book an appointment at Elizabeth Grady today for your personalized skin care treatment and stay healthy with your regular pampering needs!
