Get Your Skin Ready for Spring: Essential Skincare Tips

As the winter chill begins to fade away and signs of spring emerge, it’s time to rejuvenate and refresh your skincare routine. After months of battling harsh weather conditions, your skin may be craving some extra attention and care. Transitioning from winter to spring requires adjustments in your skincare regimen to address new challenges and embrace the beauty of the season. In this blog post, we’ll explore essential tips and products to help you prepare your skin for the springtime flow it deserves. 

Switch to Gentle Cleansing:

Start your spring skincare routine by ditching heavy, creamy cleansers that were popular during the winter months. Switch to a gentle, light foaming cleanser that effectively removes impurities without stripping away essential oil and moisture. Look for formulas with ingredients like glycerin and hyaluronic acid to keep your skin hydrated and balanced after cleansing. 

Skin Exfoliation:

Exfoliating is a process of removing dead cells from the outer layer of your skin. If it is done frequently and not properly, it could cause more harm than good. It’s important to choose a gentle exfoliant that sheds off dead, flaky skin cells without stripping natural oil and further disturbing your skin’s PH and microbiome. Stay away from scrub exfoliants that often damage your skin barrier. Choose a quality exfoliating product containing known actives such as alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) or beta hydroxy acids (BHAs) to unclog pores and promote cell turnover. Exfoliating in preparation for springtime can help bring healthy glow by removing the dull skin cells accumulated during the winter. 

Switch to Lightweight Moisturizer: 

If you have been using heavy, oil-based moisturizers in the winter, swap them out for lightweight, fast absorbing, water-based formulas that provide ample hydration without feeling greasy or heavy on the skin. Our AM Multivitamin Moisturizer is lightweight, fast absorbing, and packed with daily essential nutrients to hydrate and nourish your skin throughout the day. 

Reintroduce or Up Your Sun Protection:

With longer days and increased sun exposure, it’s essential to reintroduce sun protection in your spring skincare routine if you’ve been skipping it during the winter months. If you’ve been applying sunscreen through the winter, you may want to increase your dose. Invest in a broad-spectrum sunscreen and apply it generously to your face, neck, and any exposed skin. Using a stick sunscreen is recommended to ensure proper coverage and protection against UV rays. Don’t forget to reapply every two hours, especially when spending time outdoors. 

With spring around the corner, it’s time to revitalize your skincare routine and embrace the beauty of renewal and rejuvenation. From gentle cleansing to sun protection, prioritizing your skin’s needs to achieve a healthy, radiant complexion all season long.
