Spring Skincare Refresh
After what felt like a really long winter, where moisturizing and protecting your skin from cold was paramount, where you had to deal with dry skin, chapping due to winter sports or walks, and less sun, now it’s time to make some changes to your routine. You might be the three-product minimalist, or the seven-step skincare aficionado, but seasonal skincare is for all of us. You will probably be outside more, and thankfully, coming into contact with more sun, warmer temperatures, and more perspiration. All of which are wonderful and necessitate some changes in your routine.
First off, use both physical and chemical exfoliation to get rid of those winter dry skin cells. This means using our Daily AHA Gentle Exfoliator a few times a week to help shed the winter.
Next, you can use a lighter cleanser - something like our De-Stress Foaming Cleanser. Because it is lightweight and infused with six bioactive ingredients to gently cleanse and purify skin, it will freshen and nourish your skin in the morning and get all that sunscreen off your face at night without feeling stripped. Fully removes makeup and impurities, and helps calm skin, leaving it hydrated and prepped for treatment.
Before you move onto your moisturizer, try our refreshing Pore Purifying Peptide Toner. It performs so much more than a spritz of cool freshness - it’s an alcohol and fragrance-free, multi-tasking elixir that works to clean pores, helps improve appearance of dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles, and even the look of skin tone. This powerhouse blend of acids, peptides, and antioxidants delivers visibly brighter, smoother, firmer, and younger-looking skin.
Also, you can use a lighter moisturizer in the spring and summer than you can in the winter. Our Balancing Lightweight Prebiotic Moisturizer is perfect for spring and summer as it helps balance skin’s microbiome with natural prebiotics combined with Nori and Niacinamide to help brighten, calm, and hydrate for healthier-looking and beautifully glowing skin. If your climate is dry or you travel frequently, Ultra Rich Nourishing Cream may still be the right choice for your skin.
Please also up your organic SPF, as your skin needs more protection from those rays and you are probably seeing more of them than you did in January! Plus, in case this was not completely obvious, we are closer to the sun in the warmer months so the sun’s rays are more potent and your vigilance should increase.
It might also be time to retake the Skincare Routine Finder quiz with different answers since our needs change during the year. You never know what you’ll learn.
It’s time to walk out your front door and turn your face to the sun, feel the warmth, and bask in all that Vitamin D you’ve been missing out on all winter. This is a time to really enjoy all the changes in the weather and in your skin. Just make sure you change your routine to match the weather so you can get the most out of the season.
