Spring is officially 13 days away, and with its arrival comes warmer weather, some much-needed sunshine and the need to switch up our skincare routine. As we say goodbye to the dullness of winter, it's time to embrace the freshness and renewal of spring by transitioning into a regimen that will keep our complexion healthy, glowing, and ready for the new season ahead.
Prepping Your Skin
The first step to any skincare routine is cleansing. And as we dive into a warmer season, it's important to choose a facial wash that is gentle on your skin but still equally effective at removing dirt and impurities. That's why we like to reach for our Cleanser I. It's designed to remove dirt, sebum and makeup from the skin without stripping it of its natural oils. And unlike harsh cleansers, Cleanser I is formulated with mild ingredients that won't irritate your complexion. It is perfect for those with sensitive skin or those who are prone to dryness. Exfoliating is also an essential step in any skincare routine. During the winter, dead skin cells can build up, leaving your skin looking dull and tired. Exfoliating once or twice a week using AHA Cream will help to remove these dead skin cells, revealing smoother, brighter skin. During the transitional weeks ahead, opting for milder formulations allows your skin to adapt to environmental changes without overdoing it. This sets you up for success for the rest of your skincare routine.
Pump Up The Hydration
As the weather heats up, it's time to swap out your Rich Moisture for a lighter formulation like our Light Serum. It is still very hydrating but feels lightweight on the skin making it perfect for warmer weather. Light Serum was formulated to absorb quickly into the skin without leaving a heavy or greasy feeling. Not to mention, it provides just the right amount of hydration to keep the skin balanced and healthy without clogging pores or causing breakouts. It really is perfect for use day and night, or even as a primer under makeup.
Not that we need to tell you again, but UV rays do not discriminate. Regardless if you're working from home or enjoying the taste of spring weather, be sure to use a sunscreen with at least an SPF factor of 30 every day (yes, even on cloudy days). Have you tried our new Sunscreen Lotion SPF 45? It is crucial to apply your sunscreen generously and frequently, especially during peak sun hours. Using SPF 45 can help prevent premature aging, sunburns, and other harmful effects of sun exposure, making it an essential part of any skincare routine. You may also want to consider wearing a hat and sunglasses to provide additional protection. You'd be surprised how much of an impact these small but mighty lifestyle changes can positively make.
Don't Forget The Eyes
Hands up if you're looking forward to spring allergies IYKYK and trust us when we say we know all about the havoc they can wreak on our skin. Case in point? The increase in puffiness and dark circles under our eyes. Using a well-formulated eye cream with ingredients like caffeine can help to reduce the appearance of darkness, leaving you looking refreshed and revitalized (even if you don't feel like it). That's why we've formulated our Eye Treatment with a blend of lightweight yet hydrating antioxidants and botanical extracts, such as Vitamin E, Echinacea Extract, Rosemary Extract, and Sea Kelp. Its well-balanced formula effectively moisturizes and refines the skin around the eyes while brightening its appearance and reversing or preventing signs of aging.
Take Care of Your Hands
The change in weather can cause your hands to become dry and chapped. Our hand cream, Intensive Hand Repair, features a blend of lactic acid, hyaluronic acid, and powerful antioxidants. Even after multiple hand washings, your skin is left feeling incredibly soft and well hydrated. We were most concerned with addressing the effects of harsh winters and lifestyle changes (like washing our hands 100x a day) when formulating this product, and we're proud to say that we've created something that effectively combats dryness and cracks in the hands. It's a must-have to keep in your purse, by your beside, at your desk...
Transitioning into a spring-approved skincare routine doesn't have to be difficult—It's all about keeping your skin hydrated and protected. By following these tips, you'll be able to enjoy the beauty of spring with a healthy, glowing complexion.
