Having survived the worst of the winter skincare blues, spring is the perfect time to recharge your skincare routine and rejuvenate your complexion. Generally, spring is a time for the skin to recharge and improve after the dryness and sensitivity experienced during winter. Whilst a complete skincare overhaul is not necessary, a few adjustments can help your skin to feel and look healthy this spring.
Offered below are some quick and easy methods for improving skin appearance and texture post winter.
During winter, as our skin is prone to dryness and sensitivity, exfoliating once or twice a week is sufficient. However, in spring exfoliation can be increased to twice or even three times a week to remove dead skin cells and turn over new ones, promoting a smoother complexion and brighter more even overall skin tone.
Adjust Skin Moisture Levels
Overcompensating with a heavy moisturiser is common during winter, as the skin needs an added boost of moisture to combat dehydration of the skin and the low humidity of the season. As the season shifts, the skin tends to hold more moisture and can draw hydration from the atmosphere, meaning a heavy moisturiser isn’t necessary. While your skin does get a dose of hydration from the warmer climate, sweat and sun exposure will still dehydrate the skin, meaning a moisturiser is still essential. Try switching to a lighter formulation to let the skin breathe whilst preventing from hydration related skin concerns.
After months spent hidden under layers of clothing it can be easy to get out of the habit of applying sun protection to the skin, but it is important to adhere to this all year round. Whilst in winter a moisturiser with a built-in SPF may have sufficed, to protect the skin from harmful UV radiation while simultaneously defending against the appearance of dark spots or wrinkles, a standalone product of at least SPF 50 should be applied throughout the season.
