Add a Zing to your Winter Complexion with our Spring Skin Care Tips!
With winter singing its last swan song, it’s time to prepare your skin for spring with our Spring Skin Care Tips! The harsh, cold winter weather strips your skin of its moisture and indoor heating makes the situation even worse. So at the end of winter your skin is simply ravished of its moisture, often feeling so dry and tight that your moisturizers don’t seem to help hydrate your skin anymore.
So here are our top five Spring Skin Care Tips that will help to revamp your winter skin, leaving you with a smooth, soft and vibrant complexion.
Spring Skin Care Tip 1: EXFOLIATION
The first step to achieving beautiful, hydrated and radiant skin is to remove all of the dead skin that has built up over winter. Your best strategy is to use a gentle exfoliant twice a week and then a stronger exfoliant once a month to give your skin a deeper and more effective exfoliation.

This gentle exfoliating cleanser by Body Merry is ideal for removing the build-up of dead cells, dirt and debris that has collected on your skin over winter.

With a stronger solution of glycolic acid, the DIVINE exfoliator will help to super clean your skin, remove deep seated blackheads, and reduce fine lines caused by your dry and undernourished skin. This peel also stimulates the production of collagen to help firm and tighten your skin, leaving your skin looking bright and fresh – and ready for spring!
Spring Skin Care Tip 2: FACE MASKS
The right type of face mask is going to really super charge your skin’s health by adding oodles of moisture and nourishment and removing nasty impurities from your skin. A wonderful face mask will not only super hydrate your skin but it will also unclog your pores and leave your skin absolutely glowing with health and vitality. A deeply cleansing face mask should be one of the essential weekly steps in maintaining a fabulous complexion. There is nothing worse than dry, undernourished skin for making you look older than your biological age!

Spring Skin Care Tip 3: HYDRATING SERUM
Hyaluronic acid serums are your basic serums that everyone needs in their skin care regime, but sometimes you need something a little different that gives your skin an extra boost. As you transition your skin from winter to summer, you want a serum that will help to repair and nourish your skin, giving your complexion a wonderful glow and a more youthful and fresh glow.
OLAY Regenerist Regenerating Serum
Th Olay Regenerist Regenerating Serum is a light weight gel serum that contains advanced anti-aging ingredients and provides a super boost of hydration to your skin that goes down deep. With hyaluronic acid for super hydration, an amino-peptide complex for extra skin plumping and lots of antioxidants, your skin looks younger, brighter and healthier – just ready for the Spring season.
Spring Skin Care Tip 4: HYDRATING MOISTUIZER
With the season slowly turning towards spring, your skin needs to recover from the ravages of the cold, dry winter temperatures with the addition of a nourishing moisturizer. During winter you might have used a fairly heavy moisturizer to prevent your skin becoming too dry and irritated during the colder weather. Now however, it’s time to use a lighter moisturizer that will start to repair your skin, but you don’t want one that is too light, as it’s not summer yet!
iS Clinical Reparative Moisture Emulsion
This intense reparative emulsion by iS Clinical is designed to rejuvenate your skin by supplying a deep pulse of hydration, restoring and smoothing your skin. It contains hyaluronic acid for super hydration, a proprietary mix of enzymes to protect your skin from environmental damage, copper tri-peptide to reduce fine lines and superoxide dismutase – an antioxidant rich enzyme that reverses the effects of UV damage. This light weight hydrating emulsion is perfect for all skin types and is ideal for under your makeup. It’s not too heavy and it’s not too light, so it won’t clog your pores or leave it crying out for hydration.
Spring Skin Care Tip 5: PROTECTIVE SUNSCREEN
We all know that we should wear sunscreen all year round, regardless of the season. During winter however, we tend to forget more often than not, which doesn’t help our skin! However, the drying effects of the sun and wind can be just as devastating in winter as in summer, so if you haven’t used a sunscreen during the winter months, it’s time that you added one to your skincare routine for spring.
EltaMD UV Daily Broad-Spectrum SPF 40
This sheer and lightweight sunscreen by EltaMD won’t lay heavily on your skin and is the perfect sunscreen to transition from winter to spring. It contains hyaluronic acid for deep hydration and a transparent zinc oxide, so that it doesn’t look like you are wearing a sunscreen at all. With a broad spectrum SPF 40, your skin is protected against both UVA and UVB rays from the sun and because it’s so lightweight, it doesn’t make your skin break out. Protecting your skin from the sun will help to prevent free radical damage and keep your skin looking smooth and even toned all spring.
Hyaluronic acid serums have become very popular in the skincare industry, simply because they have such a remarkable effect on your complexion. When an ingredient this good comes along, everyone wants to jump on the band-wagon!
The cooler autumn temperatures and lower humidity levels cause your skin to loose some of its moisture, so autumn is all about hydration and repairing any damage caused during summer. It’s also a good time to prepare your skin for the ravages of the cold winter months yet to arrive.
There are many factors that are essential to maintaining a youthful complexion, but collagen production is the key element! The problem is that as you age, the amount of collagen in your skin decreases, leading to fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. The solution is to increase the production of collagen in your skin.
