With the winter months behind us, our skin no longer needs all of the extra products we use to keep hydrated. With the sunnier days ahead of us, now is the perfect time to change up our skincare routines. Here are 3 ways to spring clean your skincare routine.
1. Lighten Up and Brighten Up
With the winter months, most of us use lots of layers on our face to help keep in the moisture. Now that the weather is warmer, we don’t need as many products on our face. If you are using a serum, oil and moisturizer, maybe remove the oil and switch to a lighter moisturizer. And don’t for get your SPF. I have a post on my favourite clean beauty sunscreens for your reference.
The trend of less is more has made its way to the skincare realm. And most dermatologists are happy with this trend. For years, people have been overworking their skin with so many products that end up leaving skin sensitized and inflamed. To do this, you need to figure out what your skin needs the most. Cleansing, moisturizing and sunscreen are no brainers and should not be removed. But keep those 3 steps and build up from their.
I’ve mentioned this before and I am mentioning it again, using a sunscreen every single day is so important. I wear it 365 days a year! Sunscreen not only protects your skin against the harmful sun rays but it also prevents and protects against aging, hyperpigmentation and more. When using a mineral zinc based sunscreen, it should be your last step in your skincare routine. For the best results, you shouldn’t mix it with your moisturizer. And lets not forget a SPF lip balm as well.
I hope you found this most helpful to spring clean your skincare routine!
