Adapting Your Skincare Routine To The Spring Season
Winter season is over and it’s time to exfoliate to strip off those excess layers of dead skin cells like an old sweater and reveal fresher, healthier skin. We gave you all the important winter tips to tackle winter skin issues and now it’s time to dive into the “springcare”.
The arrival of this warm season is a great time to spring-clean your beauty bags and get ready for lighter skincare routines and regimes.
The skincare tips below are meant to keep your skin healthy and radiant this spring.
Gentle Exfoliation for Renewal:
As we transition into spring, exfoliation becomes a gentle dance of renewal. Slough away the remnants of winter’s dryness with mild exfoliants – think enzyme masks and gentle chemical exfoliants – that unveil the fresh, glowing skin beneath. Shedding the buildup of dead skin cells paves the way for better product absorption and a more radiant complexion.
Hello Hydration, Goodbye Heavy:
Spring season is warmer, therefore, it is advantageous to switch from over-hydrating moisturisers to lightweight/oil-free/gel moisturisers to let the skin breathe. There’s a common misconception that oily skin doesn’t need moisturiser in warmer seasons, as it will just add grease and shine, scratch that because naturally, our skin produces more oil and retains moisture better than in the colder months therefore moisturisers should be prioritised during the spring season to stay hydrated and moisturised at all times.
Another way to enhance skin hydration is incorporating serums. They are made to target specific skin issues therefore, it is advisable to swap your oil based serums and use water based serums. Serums work differently, while some help brighten your skin or reduce blemishes, others focus on boosting hydration or fighting the signs of aging. It is important to always read the application instructions as some serums work better in the morning, while others work best when applied in the evening.
Sun Protection Reigns Supreme:
With the sun’s increasing intensity, the spotlight falls on robust sun protection. This is the season to diligently apply broad-spectrum sunscreen, shielding your skin from both UVA and UVB rays. Opt for a sunscreen that marries seamlessly with your lighter routine, providing the essential protection without the sticky, heavy feel.
Nature’s Touch – DIY Masks and Floral Infusions:
Spring’s vitality can be harnessed in your skincare routine through natural DIY masks and floral-infused products. Incorporate fresh, seasonal ingredients like cucumber, aloe vera, and chamomile into your routine. DIY face masks crafted from flower petals not only bestow a delightful sensorial experience but also infuse your skin with the vibrant energy of spring.
Importance of skincare routine consistency
Skincare results don’t show overnight but personalise a skincare routine, follow it daily and you will reap good results. Consistency is key when it comes to skincare therefore maintaining a constant skincare routine will help maintain your skin’s radiance so you can look your best always.
