According to the experts, the following tips should be considered when formulating your spring
skincare routine. Let's dive in!
12. Forget the heavy, caked-on makeup:
While makeup can significantly enhance your features, overdoing it can be detrimental to your skin. Heavy, caked-on makeup equals clogged pores, especially in the seasons' warmer weather, which isn’t a good look on anyone. Also, while many of the foundations available on the market boast sunscreen in the ingredients, it is not enough to provide sufficient coverage. Always use sunscreen in addition to your makeup products.
11. Facial mists are your friend:
Springtime can also mean extra
10. Use natural or organic oils for certain skin conditions:
Natural oils have been used for a variety of reasons, for literally centuries. Their
9. Don’t forget your wide-brimmed sun hat:
Most women know that sunscreen needs to be applied to the face regularly, but you can almost double your protection by using a sun-protective wide-brimmed hat to keep the dangerous rays away. Check out this one from Topshop.
8. Do not neglect your lips:
During the winter season, your lips usually let you know when they’re in need of some tender, loving, care by becoming dry and chaffed. During the summer and spring damage to your lips can be a little more subtle. Always remember to use an SPF
7. Go easy on the retinol:

These fresh, brand-new cells are more likely to burn in sun exposure. By all means, continue to use retinol in your
6. More acidic cleanser:
Cleansers that are more acidic or astringent can offer more control when it comes to sweat and shine. This is obviously more important during warmer months such as in spring and summer months.
5. Learn to prevent aggravating your allergies:
When allergies take hold, it can result in red, puffy, and irritated skin. Preventing flare-ups during the spring is the best way to combat the symptoms of an allergic reaction.
4. Antioxidants, antioxidants, antioxidants:
Antioxidants are one of the best ways to keep your skin looking young, fresh, and healthy. Skincare products that include antioxidants help prevent premature aging and sun damage.
3. Don’t be afraid to exfoliate:
Exfoliating is imperative in the removal of dirt, waste, and dead skin cells. It also helps to keep your skin looking bright and healthy. Exfoliating can make you more susceptible to burning so sunscreen is always a must!
2. Swap your heavier, winter moisturizer for a water-based one:
Your skin retains more water during the warmer months. This means that a lighter moisturizer is in order. Water-based ones work wonderfully and prevent over saturating your skin and/or clogging pores.
1. SPF (and no, the SPF in your foundation is not enough):
We realize that this is pretty well-known, however, sunscreen application is so very important. Sun exposure causes premature aging, lines, and wrinkles and greatly increases the risk of skin cancer. Invest in your skin with a sunscreen that you will wear every day and reapply.
