Your Springtime Skincare Routine
As the weather changes and the spring season arrives, it’s important to make changes to your skincare routine. The colder, drier winter air can leave your skin feeling dry and dull. Now that the weather is warming up, it's time to switch up your routine and focus on hydrating, nourishing, and protecting your skin. Here are some tips for changing your skincare routine this spring:
- Exfoliate gently
During the winter months, our skin tends to accumulate dead skin cells more quickly due to the dryness in the air. Exfoliating your skin can help to reveal fresh, smooth skin underneath. However, it’s important to exfoliate gently and avoid any harsh exfoliants that can damage your skin. Opt for a gentle scrub or a chemical exfoliant that uses AHAs or BHAs (such as our S.A. 2% Gel Serum!) to exfoliate your skin more gently.
- Hydrate with a lightweight moisturizer
As the weather warms up, you’ll want to switch to a lighter moisturizer that doesn’t feel heavy or greasy on your skin. Look for a moisturizer that hydrates without clogging your pores or feeling too heavy. Using a moisturizer with lightweight ingredients like hyaluronic acid or glycerin will help to provide a boost of hydration to your skin without feeling heavy (our Gel Hydrator would be perfect!).
- Protect your skin from the sun
With the warmer weather, it’s important to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Make sure to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 every day, even if you’re just running errands or spending time indoors. This will help to prevent sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots on your skin.
- Add antioxidants to your routine
Antioxidants like vitamin C or green tea extract can help to protect your skin against environmental damage and fight against free radicals that can damage your skin cells. Look for serums or creams with these ingredients to help brighten and protect your skin.
- Don’t forget to hydrate from the inside out
Drinking plenty of water is essential for healthy skin, no matter the season. Hydrating from the inside out will help to keep your skin looking plump, dewy, and healthy. Make sure to drink at least 8-10 glasses of water every day to ensure your skin stays hydrated from the inside out.
In conclusion, changing your skincare routine for spring doesn’t have to be difficult. By following these tips, you can help to keep your skin healthy, hydrated, and protected all season long.
