Pro Tips and Products for Spring Skin Care

Natural beauty makes a return this spring. Channel your inner Beyonc – because you woke up like this – and use these expert tips to maintain a radiant complexion.


Moisture and Exfoliate

“The two biggest things that will help keep your skin healthy are a good moisturizer and exfoliating. I recommend a really thick moisturizer or a serum with hydrating oils. Exfoliating weekly will remove oils, dirt and flaky and dry skin.” -Katrina Fandrick, skin-care trainer, Skoah Westhills

Katrina Fandrick recommends: The Dewlux Night Cream, $75, from Skoah, four Calgary locations,

Essential Fats

“Feed your skin with the right amount of healthy fats. Essential fatty acids are key to healthy, dewy-looking skin. They help our skin cells retain moisture and flush out toxins, essentially minimizing the signs of aging, calming inflammation and irritation and giving your skin that natural, nourished look. Omega-3 and omega-6 can be found topically in skin-care products and should be used as part of a daily skin-care regimen.” – Lourdes Juan, director, Soma Spa

Lourdes Juan recommends: Lowen’s In Yo Face! Natural BB Face Cream, $30, from Soma Hammam & Spa, 3710 Market St. S.E., 587-471-2496, and Soma Aesthetics, 555 Strathcona Blvd. S.W., 403-242-6057,

All Oiled Up

“I love a few drops of my favourite oil on top of my night cream. During the driest months, I use it in the day, also. As the seasons change, I will lighten up my moisturizer and still use a drop of oil at night.” – Rachel Lamont, owner and medical aesthetician, The Natural Art of Skin Care

Rachel Lamont recommends: Eminence Rosehip Triple C+E Oil, $110, from The Natural Art of Skin Care, 310 16 Ave. N.W., 587-351-1131,

Get Into the Groove

“Wash your face every night with a product that will deeply cleanse your skin, and exfoliate at least once a week to increase cell turnover. Both will help bring out your natural glow. Most importantly, make sure to use a toner after exfoliating, which is essential in rebalancing, hydrating and protecting the skin.” – Helene Levesque, owner, Babor Beauty Spa

Helene Levesque recommends: Babor Cleansing Enzyme Cleanser, $34, from Babor Beauty Spa, 2500 4 St. S.W., 403-474-7213,

Peel at Home

“Sunscreen provides ultimate protection, preventing visible signs of photo-aging and promoting optimal skin health. Also, to maintain healthy, glowing skin, Celazome‘s Gly-Clear Cleanser and Gly-Repair Cream is ideal for anti-aging and collagen stimulation.” – Michelle MacPherson, owner, Hello Gorgeous Skinlab

Michelle MacPherson recommends: Gly-Clear Cleanser, $42, and Gly-Repair Cream, $87.50, both from Hello Gorgeous Skinlab, 2507 14 St. S.W., 403-802-3939,
