Keep reading to learn about transitioning your skincare routine to spring.
Should Your Skincare Routine Change With the Seasons?
Your skin can be affected by the seasons changing between dry and humid. These seasonal shifts can cause excessive dryness, oiliness, or increased sensitivity. Your spring skincare routine should focus on protection, hydration, and removing excess sebum.
What Does Your Skin Need in Spring?
As we move out of the cold, bitter winter, here are some spring skincare tips that you’re skin might need:
Moisture – Allergy Season is Here
If you are prone to allergies, you may use allergy-suppressing medicine and tissues to alleviate your symptoms. These can be very drying to your skin. If you have acne-prone skin, consider a gel-based or light moisturizer. A heavy moisturizer might be too thick in the heat and humidity.
Protection – You’re Out in the Sun More
One of the best things about spring is enjoying the sunnier days! However, after months of being indoors, it can be a drastic change for your skin to be in direct sunlight. SPF and antioxidants will be your best friends.
Exfoliation – Humidity Can Increase Acne Flare-Ups
You may think only your winter skin needed exfoliation, but you’ll need it in spring too! With hotter temperatures, your skin will hold onto sweat and debris on the surface. Exfoliating helps clear away trapped bacteria and helps reduce acne flare-ups.
How Do I Transition My Skincare From Winter to Spring?
Here is a simple spring skincare routine to make the transition easier :
Step One: Cleanser
Cleansing is a must in every skincare routine. Since you will be exfoliating more this season, you won’t need a heavy-duty cleanser. Instead, opt for a light like our Himalayan Pink Salt Anti-Polluaging Cleansing Water. It hydrates while clearing away makeup and external environmental toxins.
Step Two: Exfoliate
Regular exfoliation will help maintain your skin barrier health. However, over-exfoliating will have the opposite effect. Limit your exfoliation to once or twice a week, depending on your skin’s needs. If physical exfoliators irritate your skin, try a gentle chemical exfoliator. Our Gentle Peeling Patting Splash Masks are perfect for exfoliating without any stripping.
Step Three: Moisturize
You won’t need heavy moisturizers this season. Try a gel-based or light moisturizer for spring. If you have acne-prone skin, our Pressed Serum Crystal Iceplant will help soothe and calm. If you want to boost radiance or reduce signs of aging, try our Pressed Serum Gold Apricot and Pressed Serum Tundra Chaga
Step Four: Protection
Use SPF anytime you are outside. The sun can cause damage to your skin beyond causing a sunburn. To prevent collagen and water loss, use an SPF that blocks UVA and UVB rays, like our Honest Sunscreen.
