Spring Cleaning: Spring Skincare Tips To Freshen Up Your Routine

As the winter chill gives way to the warmth of spring, it’s time to refresh your skincare routine and embrace a new season. A few simple adjustments can make a world of difference in achieving healthy, glowing skin. 

1. Exfoliate for Renewed Radiance
Shedding the buildup of dead skin cells accumulated during the winter months is crucial for revealing smoother, brighter skin. Incorporate a gentle exfoliating scrub into your routine (if you're not already), aiming to exfoliate 2-3 times a week.

2. Opt for a Lighter Moisturizer
As temperatures rise, swap out heavier moisturizers for lightweight, non-greasy formulas. Hydrating your skin is still essential, but opt for a moisturizer that won’t feel heavy or clog pores in the warmer weather. Gel-based or water-based moisturizers are ideal for providing hydration without the heaviness.

3. Don’t Forget the SPF
Sun protection isn’t just for beach days. UV rays are present year-round and can cause premature aging and skin damage. Make SPF a non-negotiable step in your daily routine by choosing a moisturizer with built-in SPF or layering sunscreen over your moisturizer. Aim for a broad-spectrum SPF of at least 15 or 20, or 30 if you're going to be spending more time out doors  and reapply every two hours.

4. Switch Things Up With a Spring Fragrance
Alongside updating your skincare routine, consider switching up your fragrance for a scent that embodies the freshness of spring. Opt for fragrances with notes that evoke the season, such as citrus, floral, and green accords. Here are some popular spring fragrance notes to look out for:

Citrus: Lemon, bergamot, and grapefruit add a refreshing and invigorating element to fragrances.
Floral: Jasmine, lavender, and neroli bring a delicate and uplifting aroma reminiscent of blooming flowers.
Green: Notes like mint, basil, and vetiver provide a crisp, earthy freshness that evokes the essence of nature in springtime.

Remember to exfoliate regularly, opt for lighter moisturizers, prioritize sun protection, and embrace a fresh fragrance that captures the spirit of spring. By incorporating these simple adjustments into your grooming routine, you’ll be ready to face the season with confidence.
