Out with the heavy coats, gloves, and boots, and in with the bright prints, shorts, and sandals! As we prepare for the new season by transitioning our wardrobes, it’s important to make some changes to our skincare routine also. Not sure how to help your skin adjust to the changing weather? Keep reading for simple tips and tricks.
Spring skincare transition tips
If you use a moisturizing cleanser in the winter, now is a good time to swap it out for something a little stronger. Moisturizing cleansers are ideal when your skin is battling the dry, cold air, but for many, they aren’t necessary as the temperatures rise.
Now is also a good time to ramp up your exfoliation from once to twice a week. Choose an exfoliator that’s appropriate for your skin type. It’s best to start with something gentle and work your way up to a stronger exfoliant until you find your sweet spot. If you notice continued redness or irritation, it could be your skin letting you know that it needs a gentler formula.
Moisturizing cream is just as important now as it was during the winter months, but you can pack your heavy-duty moisturizer away with your coat and boots. Spring is the perfect time to test out a lighter version. Look for an oil-free formula to avoid weighing your skin down as the humidity rises.
Don’t forget the sunscreen
We shouldn’t have to remind you of this, since you’ve been wearing SPF all winter, right? As the sun gets stronger, it’s important to increase your SPF level to protect your skin. Whether you choose to use traditional sunscreen, or a product that contains SPF (such as foundations or moisturizers), it’s beneficial to apply it every day.
Spring clean your makeup drawer
When better than spring to refresh your cosmetics stash? Now is a great time to toss out anything that has been hanging around past it’s shelf life. As a general rule of thumb, you should get rid of anything that goes near the eyes or lips after one year.
Drink plenty of water
The often-overlooked tip to help achieve beautiful skin? Excellent hydration. Drinking plenty of water may help combat against some skin concerns. Hydration requirements will vary based on each individual’s needs, but the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine says that adequate water consumption is 15.5 cups for men and 11.5 cups for women, daily.
Get your daily servings of fresh fruits and vegetables
It’s important to remember that what you put into your body can affect your skin. Make sure you’re meeting your daily vitamin requirements by consuming a balanced diet and taking a daily multivitamin. Try Puremark Biotin gummies to help support hair, skin and nails.*
