Simplify Your Skincare Routine

Top tips and picks for paring down (and revving up) your skin care arsenal.

Beautiful Skin, All Year Round

For fabulous skin all year, Mona Gohara, MD, assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Yale School of Medicine, suggests doing something for your complexion every season.

Winter

To do: New Year's resolutions abound. Make sure a head-to-toe skin check by a dermatologist is on the list.

Spring

To do: Schedule a microdermabrasion treatment with a light chemical peel at your dermatologist's office. “It will revitalize your skin before summer,” Gohara says.

Summer

To do: Stock up on sunscreen. Gohara recommends applying a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to exposed skin every two hours, and after you swim or sweat, to prevent sun damage (wrinkles, age spots) and skin cancer.

Fall

To do: Consider IPL (intense pulsed light) treatment to remove brown spots caused by the sun and reduce facial redness or flushing caused by cold temps, Gohara says.
