With Spring in the air, it’s time to refresh your skincare routine to prepare for warmer weather. Just like flowers will be starting to bloom, your skin should be blossoming into it’s best self, too! Let’s discuss.
If you haven’t taken up a normal routine of exfoliating your face, now is the perfect time to do so!Even micro-dermabrasion might be in order, dependent on your skin type and how long it has been since your last scrubbing. This is going to get rid of all the environmental toxins, leftover makeup, and excess dirt and oils from your face to make sure your skin is radiant and ready to absorb some moisture.
My personal favorite is the Vichy Double Glow Peel Mask. It stays on for only 5 minutes, comes off gently, and removes all the dead skin preventing your makeup from applying its best and leaves skin looking and feeling its healthiest!
2. Switch Up Your Moisturizer
Although it is super important to moisturize with a rich moisturizer immediately after exfoliating, it’s also important to change your daily moisturizing routine when the weather starts to get warmer. Just like we don’t need the heavy coats and fuzzy boots anymore, we also don’t need super thick moisturizers made for colder weather. Invest in a good quality, light weight moisturizer than won’t feel too heavy when the sun beats down a little hotter.
Speaking of the sun beating down, it’s time to take SPF more serious. Although it is true that you should be using SPF year round, of course it is more important when the sun and weather is warming up. I recommend a good quality moisturizer than doubles as a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 – 50 would be ideal. This way you’re covered through the Spring and Summer!
My personal favorite SPF/moisturizer duo is the La Roche Posay Anthelios SX SPF 15 Moisturizer for cooler days or the La Roche Posay Anthelios 60 Moisturizer for those hotter summer days for more protection.
4. Add An Eye Cream
Because the sun is brighter when the weather gets warmer, people tend to squint more. This can lead to more fine lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet. An eye cream is a essential part of anyone’s skincare routine as it is, but it’s even more important when you are trying to combat something that is becoming more prominent because of a more frequent behavior.
5. Look Into BB or CC Creams
Who doesn’t love multi-tasking and saving money? Another good item to look into is a good quality BB or CC Cream. These products often have ingredients that are anti-aging, include SPF, and have some coverage. This means you’ll be combating fine lines, protecting your skin from the sun, and covering a blemish or dark circles all at the same time. Win, win, win!
