Good news: The weather will start to warm up in the coming weeks!
Aside from transitioning your winter wardrobe to lighter spring layers, it’s that time of the year when changes are needed in the skin care department. As it starts to get less chilly and the humidity in the air increases, your skin needs products with a lighter texture but are just as hydrating as your winter skin care products – because nobody wants flaky skin during spring!
Here are five easy skin care changes you can make just in time for spring:
If you’re already using a brightening serum such as vitamin C in your daily skin care routine, then kudos to you! If not, then now is the perfect time to start doing so.
You may not be paying close attention to your skin’s radiance since your skin has been hiding under layers of sweaters, scarves and coats all winter. Now that spring is right around the corner, start incorporating a serum like innisfree’s Brightening Pore Serum. This serum contains Hanrabong peel extract to improve the appearance of large pores, making it ideal for oily skin. It’s also enriched with vitamins B3, B5 and C to help even out your skin tone and leave you with skin that looks radiant, dewy and healthy.
Time to bid farewell to long, steamy baths as spring is all about refreshing showers. What better way to energize your skin than with a refreshing body wash?
If you want to feel like you’re at a spa then you should add Isntree’s Rose Moisturizing Daily Body Wash to your daily body care routine. This hypoallergenic body wash keeps your skin moisturized and also soothes your skin, especially if it’s sensitive or irritated, thanks to the body wash’s rose-derived ingredients. It also smells so sweet and fresh that you won’t even need to reach for perfume afterwards!
While winter is for cozy nights in, spring is for warmer days, which means you’ll be spending more time outdoors. If you want to look bright-eyed throughout all your spring adventures, then it’s worth investing in a great eye cream.
One of the most important things to swap out when seasons change is your moisturizer. If you have oily or acne-prone skin, you’ll need a cream that’s more lightweight during warmer weather. The Vitamin Tree Water Gel from Korean skin care brand I’m from is ideal for skin types that are prone to excess sebum and congestion. This water gel has a lightweight formula but still gives your skin just the right amount of hydration without clogging your pores.
If your complexion is on the drier side, or if you have mature skin, go for lighter creams. A great choice for spring is the Balancium Comfort Ceramide Cream from COSRX. It’s light, keeps your skin moisturized and supple, and even strengthens your skin’s barrier thanks to its formula containing ceramides. What’s not to love?
The final skin care change to make for spring is to make room for sunscreen. No matter what the weather is, you should apply sunscreen every single day. If you’re currently using a sunscreen with SPF15 or SPF30 for winter, you may want to rethink your SPF choices for spring.
As spring brings bluer skies and a brighter sun, your skin needs to be fully protected. When picking a sunscreen, choose one that offers at least SPF50 as it will block 98% of UVB rays. You can’t go wrong with make p:rem’s UV Defense Me. Blue Ray Sun Fluid SPF50+ PA++++ since you can apply it on both your face and body. It’s formulated with EWG green grade ingredients, making it perfect for all skin types, even sensitive skin.
