Spring means beautiful weather, gorgeous days and more time outdoors. It also means that it’s time to completely revamp and rethink your skincare routine to take you from March all the way through the heat of August. While you don’t have to replace every product you own, there are a few key things you can do to keep your skin at its best.
Here are your tips for which products you should be putting on your complexion so that you can refresh your routine.
#1 – A light moisturizer
With winter gone, the need for a thick, heavy moisturizer is a thing of the past (at least for now). The keyword for hydration when it comes to spring and summer is lightweight. That’s because as the temperatures heat up and the humidity rises, your skin produces more oil, oil that you no longer need in your creams.
Our spring and summer moisturizer fave is the Miracles & More Hydrating Mango Face Cream.
It’s infused with hyaluronic acid, so you still get all the hydration you need, yet is lightweight, going on like silk to keep your skin moisturized, without feeling greasy.
#2 – UV protection
Although protection against the UVA and UVB rays from the sun is important year-round, because of the extra time you’re likely to spend outdoors in the coming months, it’s especially important to check your SPF choice.
The lowest you should go is an SPF 20, but higher is better. And be sure to reapply throughout the day, especially if you find yourself sweating.
#3 – Gentle exfoliator
Some find themselves forced to stop exfoliating during the dry winter months, when their skin becomes cracked and irritated. If you’re one of them, it’s time to add back your exfoliator to keep your complexion fresh and glowing in the glowing spring sun.
But remember, when it comes to refining your skin, gentle is best.
That’s why we love our 3-in-1 Exfoliate that not only softly whisks away dead skin cells that dull your complexion, but also deep cleans your pores, leaving them tighter and your skin firmed and lifted.
It’s springtime rejuvenation, without irritation.
#4 – Antioxidant power
The increased exposure to the sun’s rays, as well as outdoor pollution, that accompany the spring and summer months also mean more free radical damage for your skin.
That’s why we like to up our antioxidant power when winter ends by misting on our Botanical Firming Toner throughout the day.
Enhanced with antioxidants from Japanese green tea, plus grapefruit seed extract, aloe vera, chamomile flower extract, and cucumber extract, it’s perfect both before makeup, and any time you need a fresh burst to keep your day and your skin at its best.
#5 – Water-based serum
If you’re using an oil-based serum, spring is the time to think water!
A lighter serum, that still offers the potent skin loving effects of peptides, aloe and cucumber fruit, like our Face & Eye Firming Serum, delivers the plumping action you want for a lifted, youthful look, without feeling heavy or clogging your pores.
With these tips, you can revamp your skincare routine and keep your glow on as the gorgeous weather comes on!
