Spring is here, which means now is the perfect time to make sure you have a great skin care routine specifically for you. With spring bringing warmer weather and allergy season to Chubbuck, this season is especially important in helping your skin adjust to the changes. If you’re determined to not suffer through another spring with dry and irritated skin, check out our list of skin care tips to help you transition.
You can’t have a skin care routine without setting aside time for some proper exfoliation. This essential step of your regimen can help your skin through a variety of ways you may have never even thought about. Evening skin tone, preventing acne, and unclogging pores are just some amazing benefits that can come from exfoliating! Just remember that you can exfoliate your skin too much. For best results, try to do this skin care step about only two to three times a week.
Clean Your Brushes
It’s time to do some spring cleaning! Your makeup brushes might not be the first thing that pops into your mind when you imagine spring cleaning but trust us, they need it. Just think about how often your makeup brushes touch your eyes and face. Not properly cleaning after constantly dipping them in powers and liquids can cause a build-up of bacteria and product. If you keep applying those brushes to your face without proper cleaning, it can cause acne and other skin problems. Thankfully, makeup brushes are pretty easy to clean. Just massage some soap into your brush with water, squeeze out the extra moisture with a clean towel, and you should be good to go. Don’t forget to keep doing this process weekly even after spring!
Making sure that you’re getting enough water should always be a priority since it can help with so many health concerns. It’s no surprise then that staying hydrated can also be an amazing benefit for your skin. Your organs need water to function and with your skin being the largest organ, it’s important that you get enough water to prevent dry and flaky skin. From slowing aging and wrinkles to reducing puffiness and irritation, there are advantages to getting the recommended amount of water for your body.
Lather That Sunscreen On
We know that you’ve been waiting all winter for the sun to finally come out so you can work on your tan. Unfortunately, those UV rays from the sun are less than ideal for your skin and can even cause skin cancer if you’re exposed to them too often. You may even discover that what looks like a tan now can eventually leave your skin with brown spots and discoloration. It may feel like you’re missing out but applying sunscreen all over your body is essential for your skin care routine. Don’t forget to cover your face too to help it stay moisturized and prevent wrinkles.
Switch to a Lighter Moisturizer
While winter had you applying a heavy and thick moisturizer to keep your skin from getting dry, the same products won’t work for you during the entire year. As the weather starts to get warmer, those heavy products can start to leave a greasy layer on your skin. Transition smoothly from season to season by adjusting your moisturizer with a lighter one just in time for spring. This will help your skin stay hydrated while also preventing it from weighing you down. Better yet, choose a moisturizer that has SPF in it for some added sun protection!
