4 Spring Skin Changes to make in the new season

1. Start Exfoliating: Cold, rain, and sludge can cause season-long buildup on the skin – dead skin cells, leftover product, and environmental toxins. Exfoliation will get rid of that old dead winter skin…

2. Lighten your load: Come spring it’s time to swap out your heavy formulas for lighter lotions, while ingredients like petrolatum help protect the skin, certain products can weigh you down especially in humid weather. A suggestion is an oil free moisturizer with an spf  which goes on light and smooth, but is rich enough to quench skin without kick starting excessive oil production.

3. Apply (and re-apply) Sunblock: Springtime is actually a high risk time for sunburns and sun damage, although the weather is warmer, it’s still so mild you might not feel how strong the sun is. Apply sunscreen every morning and reapply it again before any outdoor activity during the day.

4. Add an Eye Cream: Because the sun’s more prominent in the spring people are more prone to squinting so to combat the fine lines and wrinkles that can form around the eyes. Find an eye cream with a high concentration of antioxidants and peptides, this duo works to both ward-off the collagen-destroying effects of UVA rays, and plump up the fine lines and wrinkles that have already formed. Of course, a pair of big sunglasses is never a bad idea, either!
