When the seasons change, you probably think about changing up your wardrobe, shoes and even hairstyle. But, do you ever consider changing up your normal skincare routine? You might want to consider making a few small changes to your skincare routine as the seasons change, especially if you live in a climate where the weather changes drastically. Here are some of the best products and techniques to add to your routine this spring to put your best face forward:
Start to exfoliate more often. Your skin might be dry and dull from the cold winter months. Now is the time to get rid of it and get that fabulous glow as you show more skin. The best way to get rid of dead skin cells and dull skin is exfoliation. It will reveal a fresh layer of skin and will help your skin to absorb other skincare products more effectively. Look for a gentle face exfoliating scrub that you can use weekly or even daily. Look for products that contain antioxidants to further give you that fabulous glow.1
Try our COMPLETE CLARITY Daily Facial Exfoliating Polish for the radiant complexion you desire. The best part is that it is great for all skin types and it is gentle enough to use daily.
You may have skimped on SPF in the winter, but now that the sun is shining more often and the weather is warming up, there are no more excuses. You’ll need to make sure to wear an SPF 15 or more every time you go outside, even if it’s cloudy. Put on sunscreen after you moisturize or look for a moisturizer with SPF in it.1
You may also want to look for a BB cream to help you multi-task if you’re always on the go. Look for a version that will give you some coverage, moisturize and one that contains SPF.1
Don’t forget to hydrate. If your skin is drier in the winter, a relief in spring isn’t the time to stop hydrating your skin. You may need to switch to a lighter moisturizer if your skin isn’t as dry and dull, but don’t forget to use one regardless.1
Lastly, as the weather heats up, now is the time to finally start that exercise routine. Exercise not only helps your body and mind stay healthy, but it helps your skin as well. Regular exercise encourages blood flow and circulation which can make your skin look younger and healthier. Just make sure to cleanse your skin properly right after a workout because sweat can clog pores and cause acne.1
If you are unsure of what products you may need, treat yourself to a facial. Your skin care specialist can address any skin care concerns and help you transition your skin from winter to spring. If you are having some more difficult skin concerns, you may also want to see a dermatologist.
