Springtime Solution to Dry, Callused Skin
This winter is full of cozy socks, warm mittens, and comfy scarves. What happens when all that is stripped away, leaving you with dry, patchy skin on your face and rough calluses on your hands and feet?
For spring this year, treat yourself to the luxury of soft, rejuvenated, glowing skin.
Confidence comes from within, but part of being confident is feeling great in the skin you’re in. If that skin is dry, flakey, callused, or damaged at all it can affect how you feel on the inside. While dry skin on the hands, feet, and face are inconvenient and bothersome, it can easily get out of control and cause a loss of self-confidence.
Addressing these issues early on and consistently can prevent further damage, and can keep you feeling confident and self-assured.
Spring may look a little different this year, due to the pandemic. While salons and spas may be off the table for now, there are ways to better your skincare routine that will have you looking better coming out of lockdown than going into it.
Stay Inside, Stay Gorgeous
A misconception about skincare is that you need to go to a dermatologist to get any results. People are unaware that there are devices out there that can be used at home, which give similar results to those you would get if you had a service done professionally.
With COVID closures, going to a professional isn’t really the safest option.
Instead you can invest in effective devices for achieving silky smooth skin, such as the ReVit Prestige, Pedi Pro 2, Pure Facial Cleanser, and the Pedi Callus Remover, designed by Silk’n to help you get spring-ready from the comfort of your own home.
Getting to the Root of your Foot Problems
There is no easy way to admit when your “little bit of a dry patch of skin” turns into a problem, but thankfully there are at-home solutions to help. People with dry skin have been trying the same solutions for years, but there is only so much moisturizer your skin can handle. Slathering your hands in scented hand cream you got as a Christmas gift is only going to go so far.
When your skin gets to the point that hand cream only helps for an hour or so, it’s time to invest in something more permanent.
The Silk’n Pedi Pro 2 in 1 Mani and Pedi Device is your saviour.
Using this device is as easy and user-friendly as pressing a button. Just turn it on, and buff away the dead skin on your hands and feet. It can be used in the shower, for optimal convenience. With such an easy-to-use tool available for such a reasonable price, you have no excuse to keep paying hundreds at nail salons just to remove dead skin on your feet.
No more snagging your feet on socks, being ashamed to take your slippers off in front of guests, or hiding your hands behind your back. Silk’n knows that keeping up with your outward appearance is more than just for aesthetic purposes, which is why they have a variety of devices to target these problems at the root of the issue.
COVID Skin Confidence
COVID springtime is going to look a little different than the springtime we are all used to. We have been able to get away with wearing sweatpants to video meetings, not having our toenails painted for months on end, and relying a little too heavily on dry shampoo. One thing we can’t get away with is poor hygiene and bad skincare.
For many of us, our only socialization nowadays comes from video calls. Constantly having a camera zoomed in on your face can make even the smallest imperfections noticeable. In person, someone might not notice that you forgot to remove your makeup from the night before. On video calls, it’s all they can see.
Taking care of your skin is a small task that you can do daily to boost your confidence, whether you’re spending time on video call or not. It’s undeniable that clear, glowing skin can make any day a good day.
The Benefits of the Springtime Sunshine
We are so used to hearing how sunshine is bad for your skin. It causes sun damage and can even cause cancer. However, the right amount of sun can have more benefits than damages.
Sunlight has been proven to release serotonin, which boosts your mood. It also helps to feel calm and focused. Without enough sunlight, these serotonin levels can dip and lead to low moods or even seasonal affective disorder.
Additionally, sunlight can help treat skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, jaundice, and acne. While it is still being tested, doctors still recommend UV radiation exposure to treat these conditions.
Sitting at a desk all day, it can be hard to remind yourself to go outside. Bringing a good book onto your patio and spending just fifteen minutes in the direct sunlight can drastically affect your mood and help certain skin conditions. Also, setting up your work-from-home set-up to get any bit of direct sunlight would help too.
With spring around the corner, the sun is out longer and its benefits can be enjoyed for more of the day. Why not take fifteen minutes right now to go sit outside and enjoy some sun?
Blame It on the Blue Light
Evidence shows that the blue light emitted from your electronic screens can lead to changes in your skincare. It can shrink or kill certain cells, which could speed up the aging process. Additionally, blue light can cause brown spots on the skin and can also lead to hyperpigmentation.
Even small bursts of exposure to blue light can begin to have long-lasting effects on your face.
While there is some research done on how blue light effects your skin, this research is still ongoing. What dermatologists have discovered so far is not great, though. Similar to sun exposure, the effects of blue light exposure develop over time.
With the whole world on their laptops, cell phones, and tablets, the real effects of blue light exposure will be able to be measured years down the line.
Although almost everyone relies on screens nowadays, taking breaks and limiting your exposure is the best thing you can do for your skin. There are antioxidant serums and protective sun screens that are designed to protect against blue light rays. Available anywhere from the drugstore to high-end beauty boutiques, there is no excuse to not take care of your skin from harsh light rays.
Putting Your Best Face Forward
During the winter, a skincare routine is easily one of the most important methods of self-care. It is the quickest way to feel accomplished, even if you have just been sitting in those same sweatpants you have been wearing all week. A skincare routine is not only beneficial for feeling good inside, but for looking good on the outside.
Facial oils, hydrating serums, and moisturizers are all great on a surface level. They target some of the surface layer of skin on your face, but have you ever wondered why you spend hundreds on these oils and serums only to still have dry skin?
When you only target the surface level of your skin, you only see temporary results.
Microdermabrasion gently removes the dead skin cells on the surface of your skin, revealing a new layer of beautifully hydrated, rejuvenated skin underneath. This exfoliation technique is commonly done by dermatologists in order to remove dirt, dead skin, and even discolouration.
For a fraction of the price and for the convenience of being able to do it at home, Silk’n offers the ReVit Microdermabrasion Device so you can see the same results you love but take ownership of doing it on your own.
The dead skin on the surface of your face is constantly being produced, and depending on your skin type, it is suggested to get a microdermabrasion treatment up to once a week. When you factor in the price of a dermatologist-grade microdermabrasion is around $150, an at-home device sounds pretty nice.
With the ReVit, you see these results at home, and save hundreds while doing so.
COVID Springtime Skincare
In today’s social climate, it’s no wonder why people are finding it harder and harder to take time out of their day to practice some self-care and implement their skincare routine. With so much going on, it is more important than ever to take time out of your day to focus on yourself. Skincare is one way you can do this.
Taking care of your skin can lead to a boost in confidence, and can help protect from long-term effects such as signs of ageing.
Imagine waking up every day with beautifully soft skin on your face and body, all thanks to doing a bit of skincare a few minutes a day. The right combination of skincare products and devices can make that a reality.
With the Silk’n Pedi Pro 2 in 1 Mani and Pedi Device, you can feel pampered at home, all while getting you ready for sandals season. The Silk’n ReVit Microdermabrasion Device provides a vibrant complexion, providing you with the confidence you need for spring. These two devices, paired with proper skincare products and practicing healthy skin habits, can drastically improve your skin for the springtime.
COVID may be affecting our lives, but it doesn’t have to affect our skincare.
