During the winter time, indoor heating can cause our skin to become dull and thick. As the temperature warms out outside and gets more humid, we need to adjust our skincare routine.
Don’t Forget to Exfoliate
You should be exfoliating all year round, Spring is the time you really need to exfoliate. Exfoliation removes the outer accumulation of dead skin cells keeping your skin healthy and more vibrant. Look for exfoliation scrubs that contain natural ingredients dead sea salt, sugar, ground almond, and jojoba beads. During the Spring, try to exfoliate your face and body twice per week since you have a lot of dead skin build up. Remember to protect your skin after exfoliation as you will be more susceptible to the sun.
Switch to a lighter Moisturizer
If you’ve been using a heavier moisturizer when it was cold, think about switching to a lighter one suitable for your skin type. Be sure to moisturize your skin day and night, and pay attention to the area around your eyes and your mouth to prevent fine wrinkles. Look for a light moisturizer that contains natural ingredients like aloe gel or Shea butter and try to stay away from petroleum-derived ingredients like petrolatum, or petroleum jelly these will dry your skin out and may break you out.
Change your Makeup
As the air begins to hold more moisture, full coverage makeup may be harmful to your skin. Opt for a lightweight foundation, mineral powder, or tinted moisturizer.
Eat lots of Fruits and Vegetables
Good Nutrition is the foundation for a healthy and beautiful skin. Spring and Summer is the easiest (and cheapest) time to find fresh antioxidant rich fruits and vegetables. If possible buy organic as it contains fewer pesticides and toxins, which means fewer in your body.
