We will hatch out of the winter cocoon soon. So it’s officially time to put a spring into your skincare routine. From exfoliating to lighter moisture, here are a few ways to help you smoothly transition your routine into the blossoming season.

1. Spring clean up your skincare pile

Do you know that one moisturizer that leaves your skin feeling dry? Or that cleanser you have not used in 2 years? Yeah, it’s time to let it go. The rule of thumb is, if it does not leave your skin feeling healthy or moisturized, you definitely do not need it.

This applies to everything from facial cleansers to body oils. Sometimes less is more. Find what works for you and eliminate what does not.

2. Exfoliate

Your body naturally sheds itself every 25 to 30 days. However, the dead skin cells can get clogged into your pores and leave your skin looking dull. Thus, it’s important to exfoliate, especially after hibernating during winter. Choose the right exfoliator for your skin, whether homemade or store-bought, and scrub it off gently of course.

3. Lighter moisturizer

Gone are the heavy winter days along with its equally heavy moisturizer. As we know, the spring heat combined with heavy moisturizer equals a sticky creamy residue which no one wants. Hence, opting for a lighter moisturizer would do you well during the springtime.

4. Up your SPF

Now, before you completely skip over this and say that you do not need sunscreen, I am here to inform you that you do. Seeing as the winter clouds are clearing out, it’s time to reach back into your shelf and grab that SPF.

5. Breaking new ground

There are countless skincare trends you could look into that could step in to improve your skincare. From double-cleansing to simply trying a new mask. Take inspiration from the blossoming flowers by implementing something new into your day-to-day routine.

There you have it; 5 easy ways to help you beam during Spring.
