Spring is Here…Is Your Skin Ready?
Living in Colorado means it’s totally normal to pack flip flops and a parka for your weekend getaway. Combining 5,280 feet in elevation, an arid desert climate, and 300 days of sunshine with daily fluctuating temperatures and weather makes skincare a particular challenge in our beautiful state. It is important to have a beauty routine that allows your skin to look and feel its best, no matter what the season is. Ella Bliss is here to help!
Step 1: Moisturize!
When in doubt, reach for the lotion. Whether you’re cruising around Denver or spring skiing in the mountains, our dry climate wreaks havoc on skin if not properly protected. Keeping your skin moisturized helps prevent the signs of aging, fills in fine lines and gives your skin a natural glow. We are proud to use Image Skincare products that provide beneficial effects.
Step 2: Sun Protection
Even in the depths of winter in Colorado, the sun is out. It’s one of the best parts about living here! It’s important to protect against those wonderful rays, as the UV rays in particular are hazardous for skin. Be sure to use a lotion with at least 15 SPF, even on a cloudy day. And don’t forget your eyes and lips – these areas have thinner skin and are more susceptible to damage.
Step 3: A Fresh Start
Now that it’s spring, it’s the perfect time to give your face a head start with microdermabrasion at Ella Bliss. Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical, non-invasive procedure that uses a spray of microcrystals to remove the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells and reveal younger, healthier-looking skin.
Step 4: Hydrate!
Drink more water. When you’re done drinking a glass of water, follow it with another glass of water. The International Society for Mountain Medicine defines high altitude as between 5,000 and 11,500 feet, so just waking up in Denver means that you need more water throughout the day than folks at lower elevations. Your skin will thank you.
