Four Skin Care Tips for Spring
Spring is the season of change, and that includes your skin care routine. And even though spring has already landed, it is never too late to start a beauty regimen that works for your skin during the changing seasons. It is important to go through a bit of a makeup overhaul as the days get longer and the weather gets warmer. But the question is, what should you do? Here we offer some skin care tips to help you become spring ready.
The harsh winter weather can dry out your skin, so you need to rebuild and replenish the moisture that was lost. Get yourself a moisturizer that doubles as a skin protectant. Look for moisturizers with sunflower oil and vitamin E, which works to trap moisture inside skin cells and keeps skin hydrated at all times, while ingredients like alpha and beta hydroxy replenishes dry skin. Glycolic acid is another must-have ingredient that helps remove dead skin and leave your face glowing.
Exfoliate and Cleanse
Exfoliating and cleansing should be a part of your everyday skincare routine regardless of the season. Exfoliating helps to rid your skin of dry, rough layers left over from the winter. When it comes to choosing a scrub, avoid ingredients will be too harsh on the skin as the aim is to nurture the skin not damage it. Ingredients like walnut shells or apricot pits are rougher and therefore might irritate or tear the skin. Instead, keep your eyes out for ingredients that promote softer, more supple skin like brown sugar and bet hydroxy acids. It is also a good idea to exfoliate only once or twice a week while cleansing should happen twice a day, preferably in the morning and at night. It is best to use a mild, unscented cleanser, especially if you have sensitive skin.
Many people forget to wear sunscreen during spring, as it is not as hot as the summer months. But sunscreen is a year-round requirement, especially in spring. This is because you are more likely to be outdoors more, but the sun is not as harsh, so it is easy the harmful rays to do damage without you even knowing it. Make sure to find a product that works for your skin type, and that is ideal for your skin as well as the rest of your body. Since the skin on your face is more sensitive than the rest of your body, the sunscreen you choose must be suitable for your face to prevent breakouts. Also, keep an eye out for non-chemical sunscreens with natural ingredients for more sensitive skin.
Because the sun’s more brighter in spring, people are more prone to squinting, which causes fine lines and wrinkles in the long run. And we all know that these wrinkles can make an someone look a lot older than they are. To help combat these skin issues, find an eye cream with a high concentration of peptides and antioxidants. These two ingredients work together to ward off the effects of UV rays while plumping up any fine lines and wrinkles that have already formed. We suggest the Aspect Skin Care eye cream as it boasts ingredients designed to specially target all eye area concerns.
