How to Protect Your Skin in Spring

2013/05/19 | Permalink | Source

Spring in Korea is not ideal for the skin, despite balmier temperatures, because sandstorms and strong sunlight can wear it out. The sandstorms bring small particles that penetrate into the pores, and heavy metal elements not only cause problems for skin but also for overall health.

Ultraviolet rays also carry hazards. Warm spring weather brings people outdoors, and sudden exposure to sunlight ages skin. Here the Chosun Ilbo offers some vital tips to protect your skin this season.

◆ Sunscreen

The intensity of sunlight is the same in spring and fall, but spring sunlight can be more harmful because the skin takes time to recover its weakened ability to adapt to the sun over the long winter months.

Frequent exposure to sunlight results in wrinkly skin, freckles, blemishes and low elasticity. It is essential to protect the skin from UV rays, and apply sun cream half an hour before you go out to maximize protection.

Wearing sunglasses, a hat or mask to minimize exposure to direct sunlight is also a good idea.

◆ Double Cleansing

When you come home, use a suitable cleanser to wipe off any dirt and then soap to thoroughly clean the face. Rather than rubbing the face hard, wash the face repeatedly with warm and clean water with a mild soap.

◆ Moisturizing

In spring, dry weather, sandstorms and chill winds at night dry out the skin and often cause it to flake. If you fail to treat dry skin properly, it will result in more wrinkles and "bad makeup days". This is why moisturizing is especially essential in springtime.
