Transition Your Skincare Routine for the Warmer Months Ahead

spring skincare

When winter turns to spring, it’s not just your closet that needs a clear-out. As the clouds give way to sunshine and you start shedding those layers, it’s time to rethink your skincare routine, too. Everything starts with great skin, so follow our spring beauty tips for a fresh, glowing complexion this season.

Scrub Winter Away — Literally

All those months spent alternating between overheated rooms and the cold outdoors — not to mention heavy-duty winter makeup — can leave your skin looking dull and flaky. Unclog your pores and slough away dead skin cells with a tried-and-trusted exfoliant to reveal the new-season radiance you’ve been hiding underneath.

One of our favorites is the Skincare Mineral Face Peel by O.R.G.. This is peel with a difference and has a spray-on formula that’s fun to use (you can actually see it working). Make it the first step in any spring skincare regime.

Switch Your Skin Care Routine to a Lighter Moisturizer

When it’s cold outside we tend to pile on the products, with serums and oils acting as a much-needed barrier between delicate skin and the worst of the weather. Once spring finally arrives, however, you can let some of those layers go and start implementing spring skincare tips into your routine.

Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream

One of the most important spring beauty tips is to swap your winter moisturizer for something less rich. Sunday Riley’s Tidal moisturizer is an excellent option. It’s oil free for a lightweight feel that instantly hydrates your skin and keeps it soft all day long.

Sunscreen Isn’t a Seasonal Skin Care Tip; It’s for Every Day

This one’s completely non-negotiable. Any dermatologist will tell you to wear sunscreen every day, even in winter, but once the sun comes out for real–it’s more important than ever. Whether you choose a daily moisturizer with SPF included or apply it as a separate layer is up to you; the important thing is to make sure you wear it. It’s also a good idea to pop some in your purse.

A stick sunscreen is super-easy to apply. We’re fans of Beautycounter’s Countersun Mineral Sunscreen Stick because when it comes in a no-show texture (leaving no white residue), this brand can’t be beat.

Don’t Skip the Eye Cream as Part of Your Spring Skincare

The sun might be out, but before you start celebrating, spare a thought for your eyes: all that squinting in the sunlight does them no good at all. One of our top spring beauty tips is to invest in a luxe eye cream, like the Edible Beauty Gold Rush Eye Balm from our Spring 2019 Box.
