5 Tips to Transition to a Spring Skincare Routine

25 March 2024

  1. Apply sunscreen

Protect your skin from premature aging by applying sunscreen with a minimum SPF 50. Reapply midday, especially if exposed to sunlight through windows. Keep separate from moisturizer for optimal protection.

  1. Exfoliation

Shed dead skin cells from winter with gentle chemical peels instead of harsh scrubs. Aesthetician treatments like dermalinfusion, laser, and chemical peels can prep your skin for Spring.

  1. Switch to gel foaming cleansers

During warmer months, use gel foaming cleansers as your skin produces more natural oils. Benefits of lighter facial cleansers like these include extra hydration, avoid stripping the skin, avoid drying out the skin, and minimize shine.

  1. Use products rich in antioxidants

Incorporate antioxidants into your skincare routine year-round to prevent sun-induced pigmentation. Vitamin C stabilizes free radicals and reduces sun damage. The negative effects of the sun’s UV rays are heightened during the summer, so it is important to use products that contain antioxidants during the summertime.

  1. Use lighter moisturizers

In warmer seasons, switch to lighter moisturizers to avoid excess oiliness and breakouts. Other benefits can include less heaviness on the skin, help avoid stickiness, replenish moisture, and protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays, which can help lighten sun spots.
