As the cold and frigid temperatures subside with the warm touch of the sun, the changes you make to your makeup and skin care routine will set the tone for the rest of the sun-soaked summer and spring time days.
It’s time to give your complexion the attention and pampering it deserves. Here are the top skincare tips you need to know.
First Things First: Mind Your Moisturizer
As the seasons change, one of the most critical changes to make to your skin care regimen is your moisturizer.
Your skin needs to breathe during the warmer months, so switching to something lighter is key. Our skin tends to hold in more moisture and water during the warmer months, so be sure to find lighter moisturizer with higher SPF.
Exfoliation Is Key
If you notice that your skin gets dryer during the Spring and summer months, be sure to exfoliate to remove dead skin that may build up on the face over time.
This is a great trick to keeping a healthy glow!
Spring Cleaning Your Makeup Stash
Spring is the perfect time to take a second look at your makeup kit.
Older makeup tends to build up over time, allowing for harmful bacteria accumulation.
Be sure to throw out any makeup that has not been used in a while. Washing your makeup brushes once a week is a great way to cut down on bacteria build up.
Ditch the Foundation for Lighter Coverage
Heavy coverage tends to clog pores and can add to acne and blemishes. Switch to lighter coverage makeup such as a tinted moisturizer during hot days to allow for your skin to breathe.
Tinted moisturizers also allow for extra hydration throughout the day.
When it comes to makeup, there is no such thing as knowing too much!
