Winter is slowly leaving the building, and with the newness of spring comes warmer temperatures, and unavoidable changes in your skin. Help your complexion stay clear and glowing with these simple regimen transitions that will allow you to go from winter dull to spring radiant, seamlessly.
IIf you've been using facial oils or thicker emulsions to keep dry, flaky skin at bay - now is the time to swap them out for water-based serums that provide concentrated active ingredients and hydration without the weight.
Mind Your Moisturizer
When it's cold out, heavier moisturizers and creams can function for day or night, but as the weather warms up - try using lighter moisturizers with SPF for daytime (Daily Moisture SPF 30 Concentrate, $100), or gel based moisturizers for day or night.
Dry skin can clog pores and cause a dull appearance. Make sure to slough off that dead winter skin with a gentle exfoliant. The best kinds combine chemical exfoliants (like fruit enzymes) with natural abrasives (like jojoba beads or crushed date seeds) to effectively smooth the skin for a fresh glow (Cell Renewing Microfoliant, $45).
Never going out without sunscreen on your face is a no-brainer, but as the weather warms up, make sure you're protecting your lips with a nourishing lip balm with SPF built in, to keep your pout soft and protected from damage.
