And when it’s close to springtime you are more than ready to run into the sunny day but the truth is your skin needs time to adjust to a new weather. And that is what will be looking at in this post.

Springtime brings more humidity and higher temperatures which requires a tweak to your sun protection as well as your anti-aging skincare regime.

How to transition your skin from winter to springtime

1. Start Exfoliating Twice A Week

If you weren’t already, start exfoliating two times a week it! doesn’t matter what skin type you have, it’s important to exfoliate your face with a gentle exfoliator especially when you are just coming out from the winter season.

Not just your face, your body too needs to shed off those dead skin cells that might have built up during winter. The best way to do this is to run a hot tub and give yourself some spa treatments.

Exfoliate with a strong yet gentle exfoliator like the Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting Exfoliator for your face and the First Aid Beauty KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub Exfoliant for your body. Focus on areas prone to patches like the knee, elbows, feet, hands, neck and back.

If you can’t find the time to do this twice weekly ( I too sometimes don’t have the time) it’s okay to exfoliate your whole body once a week but essential to exfoliate the face twice a week.

2. Use a hydrating face mask

Find a good hydrating face mask suitable for your skin type to keep your skin hydrated this springtime.

3. Use A Light Moisturizer

I remember during winter, I would slather thick moisturizer on my skin from head to toe and I’m sure you did same too.

But it’s not going to be the same way this springtime, as part of your skincare routine this spring, choose a lighter moisturizer or better still, a water-based moisturizer (your skin type not exempted)

4. Wear Sunscreen

This should not even be argued, sunscreen isn’t just for those at the beach or those always under the sun. Some dermatologist recommend you also wear sunscreen indoors during the day.

Even on a cloudy day, wear sunscreen, protect your skin!

Go a good sunscreen that won’t clog your pores or give you a white cast like the Beauty Of Joseon Relief Sunscreen it’s perfect for all skin types including sensitive skin with SPF 50+.

If buying a sunscreen separately seems like spending a little extra to you, then go for a makeup product, moisturizers or lotions that contains SPF. We love the CeraVe AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion With SPF 30, it is a hydrating lotion that absorbs quickly into the skin, it’s great for all skin types.

5. Clean Your Makeup Brushes And Closet

While spring-cleaning be sure not to forget your makeup brushes and closets or box. Makeup Brushes and sponges tend to build up a lot of unseen germs and with each use, you’re not only introducing those germs to your skin, you are also damaging your skin.

I love to wash my makeup brushes and sponges after every single use, it will be great if you can adopt my lifestyle as well.

Gently wash your brush with a natural cleaner like the Cinema Secrets Professional Makeup Brush Cleaner or the EcoTools Makeup Brush and Sponge Cleansing Shampoo Bundle

Springtime Skincare Routine For Oily Skin

Your skin must have felt good this past winter, thanks to the cold weather, your skin was not as oily and shiny as always but it’s springtime now and it’s well known that summers and oily skin do not go well.

Not only does your skin clog during summer, it also appears dull and greasy. Below are some ways to rejuvenate your oily skin this spring and summer season.

1. Exfoliate at least once a week: if exfoliating three times a week seems like a lot of work to you, try exfoliating at least once a week. Exfoliating removes dead skin cells from your skin that may cause acne and breakouts.

Exfoliating also makes your skin cleaner and healthier which is why it should be part of your weekly skincare routine.

A good exfoliator to use is the Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting Exoliator It is perfect to unclog & diminish enlarged pores, exfoliate dead skin cells, smooth wrinkles, brighten & even out skin tone.

2. Use a clay facial cleanser: what better than a clay mask to get rid of impurities in the skin causing clogged pores and blackheads.

Clay mask also helps in maintaining the pH balance and removing excessive oil from the skin.

Try the New York Biology Dead Sea Mud Mask for Face and Body it helps cleanse the skin and provide a soothing sensation. Rich in minerals, it aids skin renewal, creating a gentle exfoliation effect that removes excess oil, toxins, and dead skin cells for a softer feel and radiant glow.

3. Use a hydrating face mask: a hydrating face mask will keep your skin hydrated for the whole day without making your skin looking dull and greasy.

A clay mask can be considered as a better option because of its mattifying properties, just like the clay face scrub, the clay face mask removes impurities from your skin and controls the production of oil in your skin.

4. Use a water based moisturizer: try avoiding any heavy/thick moisturizer that will clog your pores this summer, instead, use a water based moisturizer that is non-greasy and light.

Use a good moisturizer like the CeraVe AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion that will get absorbed easily into your skin and leaving it mattifying.

5. Don’t skip sunscreen: considering the rays of the sun during springtime, you shouldn’t skip sunscreen before stepping out.

Use a sunscreen that protect your skin from UVA and UV rays of the sun, use a sunscreen that has an SPF of 30 or more.

A good sunscreen is the EltaMD Skincare UV Clear SPF 46 Face Sunscreen it is a dermatologist recommended SPF for sensitive and acne prone skin.
