As the days grow longer and the weather gets warmer, it’s the perfect time to freshen up your skincare routine with a few new springtime products and techniques. With a few simple tweaks, you can help your skin detox from the harsh winter weather and prepare it for brighter days ahead. Follow our guide to a fresh and radiant spring skincare routine, and you’ll be ready to show your skin some love.
1. The importance of spring cleaning your skincare routine:
The doldrums of winter have passed and the fresh spring air is urging us to clean out our homes and reorganize our lives. It's also the perfect time to spring clean your skincare routine! As the seasons change, so should your skincare products. Winter months often call for heavier moisturizers and balms, but as the weather warms up it's important to scale back and use products that are more appropriate for the season. A light and healthy skincare routine in spring won't clog your pores or weigh down your skin. In fact, it will help to prepare your skin for summer's heat and sun. Here are a few tips for spring cleaning your skincare routine:
2. How to detox your skincare routine
The cold, dry air of winter saps our energy and leaves our skin looking lackluster. Here's how to spring clean your skincare routine for renewed radiance. First, take a good look at your skin - is it dull? Does it need a boost? Is it flaky and dry? If so, it's time for a detox. Start by tossing anything in your skincare routine that's been open for more than a year. Old products can harbor bacteria and fungus, so it's best to get rid of them. Next, take a look at what's left. If it doesn't look or smell or feel right, toss it! There's no sense in hanging on to something that's not working for you. Finally, replace any old products with fresh, new ones designed to give your skin the nutrition it needs to look its best.
3. Tips for transitioning your skincare routine from winter to spring:
As the weather transitions from winter to spring, it's important to transition your skincare routine as well. This means slowly easing your way out of heavier moisturizers and serums and gradually introducing lighter products. A great way to start is by exfoliating and hydrating your skin. You can also increase your water intake to help flush out any toxins. And finally, move to a lighter diet such as greens and fresh veggies and fruits. Your skin will thank you for it!
4. How to renew your radiance with a spring skincare routine:
As the weather starts to warm up, it's time to lighten up your skincare routine. Lighter moisturizers, serums and sunscreens will help keep your skin balanced as the environment becomes more humid. If you've been neglecting your skin, now is also a good time to schedule an appointment with an esthetician for a spring facial. They can help get your skin back on track and renew your radiance.
5. Skincare products to add to your spring skincare routine:
Spring is the perfect time to cleanse and renew your skincare routine. As the weather starts to warm up, it's a great time to add in a few new products to help jumpstart your skin's glow. Our top picks for this season are the Hippie Gold hyaluronic serum, the Hippie Silk moisturizing oil blend, and the Golden Hippie cooling eye gel.
