The seasonal change in spring is always a good time to revamp your skincare and beauty routine. Our skin requires a thicker moisturizer in the winter for better hydration. But now that spring has arrived, it’s time to revamp that skin care routine and go with a lighter, dewy look. Here’s 4 Ways to Revamp Your Skin Care Regimen for the Spring/Summer.
Now that the sun is out longer, the weather will be warmer and that means you’ll probably be outside a little more. So if you’ve skipped using an SPF in the winter, now is the time to add it back to your skin care regimen. with sunscreen. Try the Aveeno Active Naturals Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30 or Olay Complete All Day Facial Moisturizer with Sunscreen with SPF 15. My favorite is Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer SPF 30.
Now that the harsh winter air is gone, you can put away the heavy skin cream you’ve been using and switch to something lighter. Skin tends to become oilier during the seasonal change as the weather gets milder (even if you have dry skin), so to help balance the skin’s natural moisture level, a lighter moisturizer or oil-free are best for the spring/summer. Try the Simple Skincare Hydra Light Gel Facial Moisturizer, CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion AM or Philosophy’s Renewed Hope in a Jar.
Put your heavier foundation on the shelf and go with a BB or CC cream this spring. Not only do these creams help even your skin tone, but they also are light moisturizers with SPF. So they provide your face with better color and complexion without the heavy weight. Try the Clarins BB Skin Perfecting Cream SPF 25 or IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream with SPF 50+. I have dark spots, so I’m a big fan of the Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Dark Spot Correcting Cream and my makeup artist friend just put me on to the Smashbox Camera Ready BB Water Broad Spectrum SPF 30. I will tell you this product feels SUPER light on your face and on sale at ULTA for only $25 until April 1.
The harsh winter air can cause your skin to become dull, scaly and dry. If you have dry skin, it’s a nightmare. Spring is the perfect time to scrub off those dead skin cells or dry patches that the winter left behind. Exfoliating at least two times a week will also help unclog pores and prevent blackheads from forming. Try the Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Face Polish or Kiehl’s Rare Earth Deep Pore Daily Cleanser, or the Yes to Grapefruit Daily Facial Scrub.
I swear by Kiehl’s products; I was a fan before I even partnered up with them because I have dry skin and their moisturizers work miracles for me.
