Many people stick to the same skincare routine year-round, but there are some things you should change to improve your skin this spring.
Firstly, you can swap your moisturiser for something a little lighter. As the temperature and air becomes both warmer and more humid, you are less likely to have dry winter skin. Swapping to a lighter moisturiser will prevent the opposite (oily skin) from happening.
On the same note, you should swap to a cream that has a higher SPF. This will protect you from the spring sun, and is particularly important on days where you spend a lot of time outside. While the air is still quite cool in the mornings, it is already warmer and sunnier in the afternoon.
Make sure to exfoliate. When the temperature warms up, our skin often sheds even more. As such, it’s good to exfoliate to get rid of any dead skin cells, and to prevent dry, cracking skin.
Finally, remember that skin care products often have a shelf life. They can expire and either stop working properly, or start having adverse effects. As spring rolls in, you should check the dates of all of your skincare products, and be wary of any that you’ve had for longer than six months.
