Heavy-duty moisturizer is so last season.
It’s time for a spring beauty update, sunshine! Just as your wardrobe changes from season to season, so too should your skincare routine. Winter was an all-out war against dry skin and harsh weather. But spring beauty is all about keeping things light and fresh in preparation for the hot summer months to come. Here’s a skincare routine that’s sure to bring your beauty into full bloom!
Spring, summer, winter, fall— the best thing you can do for your skin in any season is to adopt a regular cleansing regimen. Leaving dirt, oil and makeup sitting in your pores overnight will only lead to heartache and pain (also known as breakouts). There’s no reason to update your cleanser for spring; as long as it gets the job done without stripping your skin of its natural oils, we say keep doing you. Our tried-and-true? A drugstore hero, CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser.
Dry, flaky skin can still rear its ugly head even after winter is officially over. If you’re using a LUNA facial cleansing brush, you’re already one step ahead. But incorporating a more intensive exfoliator like ExfoliKate once a week is the extra boost your complexion needs to banish winter buildup.
Say goodbye to layers of rich creams and serums and hello to a lightweight moisturizer that will hydrate without weighing you down. Oil-free is key here – warm, sunny days are not the time to kick oil production into overdrive. Ole Henriksen’s C-Rush is lightweight, oil-free, and all that vitamin C will give you a mega springtime glow.
Ah, sunscreen. The much-sung hero of your spring beauty routine. Of course, you should wear sunscreen year-round, but now that the sun is out to play you should up the protection factor. The hippies in us love Supergoop’s Unseen Sunscreen; it’s SPF 40 and made with the cleanest, Gwyneth-approved ingredients.
