Looking Your Best By Spring Break: Ideas for You

When the holidays swiftly begin to come and go, your next thoughts often drift to spring break and how you plan to spend your time off from your textbooks, exams, and frustrating roommates. However, while your spring break is still months away, there are some things you can do in the meantime to ensure that you are looking your absolute best by the time your week of freedom rolls around and you are ready to have the time of your life. Get to know some of the steps that you can take to be looking and feeling fabulous and get started as soon as possible.

Laser Hair Removal

If you are planning to migrate to someplace warm or even tropical for spring break, the last thing you want to be worried about is prickly, hairy legs that need constant shaving to stay smooth and sexy.  Because you are planning ahead of time, you can take the time to get laser hair removal to help you remedy this problem.

Laser hair removal is a procedure that uses a beam of concentrated light energy to essentially target the hair follicles in your leg. It will disintegrate the hair that is already there and damage the hair follicle so that hair can no longer grow in that spot. This occurs repeatedly as the laser moves over your leg, reaching more and more hair follicles in the process.

While this procedure is highly effective and is considered a permanent solution to body hair problems, it is not perfect. This means that you probably won't get the full results you want in just one session. After each laser hair removal treatment, you will want to wait around a month to get your next treatment. And keep in mind, around a month is also the amount of time you need to heal before your debut your new legs in the sun. So, get started as early as possible on your journey to permanently smoother skin.

Try Microdermabrasion

While you want your legs to look smooth and beautiful over spring break, you do not want to neglect your face. After months of harsh winter weather drying out your skin as well as months of late night coffee binges to cram for midterms and finals, your face may need an extra boost to look phenomenal for your vacation plans.

Microdermabrasion can help with that. This is a treatment you can get at your dermatologist's office that uses tiny crystals to exfoliate your skin and remove dead skin cells and buildup from the surface of your skin. These crystals are gently massaged into your skin using a machine controlled by your dermatologist. This is to ensure that the crystals are effective but do not damage or irritate the skin unnecessarily.

The crystals are then rinsed off of your face and a special moisturizing cream is massaged into your skin. The end result is skin that is fresh and rejuvenated, even glowing. The microdermabrasion process stimulates your skin to produce collagen that plumps the skin so that it looks youthful and vibrant.

Now that you know a few ways that you can begin looking your best by spring break easily and effectively, you can get started as soon as possible. You will be enjoying a warm spring break getaway in no time.

Learning To Take Care Of Your Skin

When I was a teenager, I had terrible skin. In addition to worrying about dry skin, I also had more pimples than I could even count. In addition to being painful and embarrassing, it seemed like the problem drug on and on for years. Finally, a close family friend offered some suggestions about how to take care of my skin, and it really helped me. She taught me how to exfoliate and cleanse my skin without damaging the underlying tissue, which helped to alleviate the problem. My blog is all about skin care, so that you don't have to suffer with acne like I did.
