3 Steps for Spring Cleaning Your Skincare Routine

Spring is traditionally a time of renewal, cleaning, and making space for the good things in life to shine. Well guess what, this applies to your skin as well as your home; all it takes is 3 steps and 15-minutes: (1) cleanse (the dirt and oil with the cleanser), (2) renew (deep into the pores with the mask), and (3) glow (with moisturized, fresh skin). 


1. Cleanse

Ah yes, that moment you wash your face after an exhilarating workout or at the start of a new day. It’s that bright-eyed, ready-to-conquer-anything kind of feeling. 

Dermatologist Dr. B. explains that cleaning your skin daily is critical to remove oil, dust, grime, allergens, and bacteria to prevent your skin from getting infected or breaking out.” Did you know that bacteria feed on fatty acids? This includes the oil on your skin. Gross!  And when bacteria clogs your pores, breakouts appear. Having clean skin isn’t only great for that fresh feeling, but also for keeping your face healthy and your pores bacteria-free. 

Dr. B. reminds us, “Just as important as using enough soap is using the right soap, one that will completely remove oil, dirt, and make-up.” However, he cautions not to scrub the skin too hard or use scrubs with beads or sugars. These can irritate, scratch, or even scar the skin. Instead, he says, use your hands or a soft cloth, and use more soap rather than more scrubbing. When you’re doing your daily clean, use a gentle but effective cleanser, such as Dermatologist’s Choice pH Balanced Cleanser

One of the most important times to clean your face is after working out, and this cleanser is great for all skin types. For oily skin, wash more often.. For dry skin, wash less (but still at least daily and after workouts). It varies for each person, and nobody knows your face better than you. For an even deeper cleanse, especially if you have oily skin, you can use the Purifying Facial Toner or Glycolic Peel Cleansing Pads to your routine. Cleansing the skin will open up your pores and sweat glands. When the skin is clean, other revitalizing treatments can penetrate deeper to work at their best. 

And did you know this cleansing is not just for your face? You can use this creamy and gentle pH Balanced Cleanser on your whole body to wash away impurities, balance pH, and soothe irritants without stripping natural oils. Use it on your “high sweat” areas, such as your shoulders, back, or chest. It can be a nice alternative to the typical bar of soap or body washes. Dr. B recommends “Cleanse your skin so that the natural pH will be effective at protecting the skin. Don’t compromise when cleaning your skin. Give it the thorough clean it needs for optimal skin health.”

2. Renew

When it comes to spring cleaning your home, sometimes a little extra strength is required to get that desirable deep clean shine. The same thing happens with your skin. Reach deep into your pores by using a clinical-grade Deep Cleansing Facial Mask with next-level purifying natural ingredients such as glycolic, lactic, and salicylic acids. In 10 minutes or less, the clay-based facial mask extracts impurities from the pores and decreases inflammation, redness, and fine lines. Dr. B always reminds us that feeling a little tingle when you apply the mask is a good thing… it means the AHAs and BHAs are working! Remember—no tingle, no results. 


3. Glow

Once the skin is properly cleansed and renewed,, moisturizing it with glycolic acid cream will hydrate and give it that fresh face glow.  Adding a moisturizer with glycolic acid in the formulation causes the skin to continue the natural cell turnover process long after you put it on and step out into the world. It can give you the health and life of your skin back, even if overtime sun, acne, or fine lines cause damage. Here’s one last tidbit to keep in mind: make sure the glycolic is non-neutralized. Tingle means the glycolic is working, and if you don’t feel the tingle it probably means your face is oily or the glycolic is neutralized. The Dermatologist’s Choice Facial Enhancement Cream contains only non-neutralized glycolic, so you can be sure you’ll always get that fresh, bright tingle that leads to glowing, radiant skin. 

Just like spring cleaning your house means surface cleaning, deep cleaning, and shining, spring cleaning your skin follows the same pattern. And just like with your house, treating your skin the same way can leave your skin looking brighter, clearer, and more balanced into the summer and beyond.

Bonus: DermChoice has no parabens and no fragrance. Their products are certified cruelty-free and formulated with natural and organic ingredients—and they actually work. Talk about a win-win!

Kyle House Fitness is Chattanooga’s premier fitness program offering group fitness classes and personal training with the best-certified instructors and trainers in the area. Located on Chattanooga’s thriving Southside, Kyle House Fitness is more than a gym, they pride themselves on building a welcoming and inclusive community. The owners of this gym, Kyle House and Kyle Miller (AKA The Kyles), may sound familiar to you since they recently wrote a blog post for us on how to be an LGBTQIA+ ally in the fitness space.

Since they happen to be one of the most influential duos in the fitness industry, we were eager to sit down and learn more about what wellness means to them. Ready to get to know The Kyles better? Let’s dive in.

Tell us about yourself. What led you to where you are now? 

We have always had a love for fitness. From an early age, we were both very athletic (swimming, gymnastics, and cheerleading). Once we graduated, we slowly transitioned into training young athletes and then later started working on our careers. Kyle House started personal training at a large gym and began building a solid career as a personal trainer and groups fitness instructor. Kyle Miller started working in marketing and communications ranging from politics, law enforcement, and tech becoming a leading public relations professional. After working in their fields for about 10 years they decided to combine their love of fitness with their experience and built one of the most successful fitness facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Wellness to us has always been about leading a life that is balanced. It's not all fitness, it's not all work, it's not all fun...
What inspired you to open your business? What motivates you day-to-day?  

During our time working at other gyms and visiting other facilities that many were either missing qualified and motivating trainers, topnotch customer service, or a workout that was balanced and would lead to results for everyone whether they were casual fitness enthusiasts or hardcore athletes. We are motivated on a day-to-day basis by the idea that we can always be better. The experience can get better, the community can grow stronger, and we can continue to show people that fitness is more than just a way to look good, it's therapy.

What does wellness mean to you? Has it evolved over the past couple of years? 

Wellness to us has always been about leading a life that is balanced. It's not all fitness, it's not all work, it's not all fun... it's not all healthy food, it's not just junk food—it's about finding a way to reach your own personal goals while still having a healthy relationship with fitness, friends, family, and food—otherwise known as the four Fs.

If you're in the Chattanooga area, you should definitely check out Kyle House Fitness to take your wellness routine to the next level. You can book classes on the Mindbody app or through their KHF app.
