As winter turns to spring and you're getting ready to adapt your wardrobe to the warm weather, you should also be thinking about ways to adapt your skincare regimen to the change in temperatures.
The goal is to choose products that can help target seasonal concerns as well as kickstart the skin's regeneration cycle to make way for healthy and glowy skin come spring!
We’ve rounded up four tried and tested products and tips to help you elevate your skincare routine this spring.
Exfoliate Away Winter Dullness
After a long winter, your skin desperately needs exfoliation. Our skin tends to become sluggish in the wintertime making it look dull, gray and ashy.
A acid-based exfoliant will help you maintain and achieve a glowy fresh complexion and help breathe life back into your skin.
Swap out your hydrating toner for a resurfacing one, twice to three times a week.
We recommend the Swissline's Cell Shock Age Intelligence Resurfacing Water that combines 10% Glycolic acid and tiger herb to help treat concerns like acne marks, uneven skin tone and dull skin.
Focus on Renewal and Regeneration
Spring is a time of renewal and awakening. Everything in nature comes to life with new energy. This includes your skin.
To reap the benefits of this new skin cycle, we want to support the skin's healing process and increase cellular turnover and with active ingredients.
Swap out your usual serum for retinol at night or add a booster to your existing serum.
We recommend Swissline's Cell Shock Age Intelligence Youth Booster which is a retinol formulated booster that speeds up skin cell turnover, smooths skin texture, reduces pore size and helps diminish fine lines.
The Youth Booster can be mixed into anything we call skincare.
Please note: Vitamin A is NOT RECOMMENDED for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Revive & Nourish
Next, give your skin the nutrients it needs to thrive well into the new season and the rest of the year.
A botanical-based beauty oil can help with revitalizing tired skin, soften lines and wrinkles and offer protection against dehydration when weather conditions fluctuate.
Swap out your usual serum for a beauty oil.
We recommend using Pietro Simone Skincare's The Fierce Oil to help replenish the epidermal lipids and repair free-radical damage. For maximum effect, use the Fierce Oil under your moisturizer and sunscreen during the day or use it at night while performing a simple face massage to stimulate circulation.
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
April showers bring may flowers and make your skin glow!
Maximizing your skin's ability to absorb and hold onto water is key to keeping it looking fresh and dewy.
First you want to flood the skin with as much water and humectants as possible. Then seal in all of this moisture to help it stay plump and glowy all day.
Swap out your heavy winter balm for a lighter, more water-based moisturizer that will bind to water and draw moisture deeper into the skin.
We recommend trying ISDIN Age Contour Day and Night Cream, which has a soft, velvety formula that easily melts into the skin without feeling greasy or sticky.
This is the easiest step to forget in your skincare routine, yet it's the most important step to maintain healthy skin and prevent sun damage.
Swap out your winter foundation for a lightweight tinted sunscreen that will add a little color, while giving your skin the oomph and broad-spectrum protection it needs, going into spring and summer.
We recommend trying ISDIN's Eryfotona Ageless tinted SPF50, which is a super lightweight mineral sunscreen that offers protection against photo-aging and sun-damage.
