As the weather becomes warm, it also prompts us to change our routines. From changing our wardrobe to updating our skincare regimen, springtime is an excellent opportunity to adjust our habits for the season and prepare for warmer days ahead. Although updating your skincare routine for the spring is a good practice, it does not have to be a complete overhaul. Here are a few quick tips that you can do to keep a healthy, radiant glow in the warmer months.
Because the skin tends to be more sensitive in the winter, many avoid exfoliation for fear of adding to its sensitivity. Experts recommend exfoliating the skin in the spring and summer because the skin can tolerate exfoliants and stronger ingredients when the weather is warmer. For a gentle exfoliant, try the Bronze Glory Glycolic Exfoliating Wash. It is an AHA-driven cleanser that refines and buffs the skin revealing a healthy, luminous glow.
Throw out old products
Spring cleaning applies to your skincare and make-up too! If you have products on hand that did not work, are old or unused, or products that you no longer love, feel free to throw them away. Spring is a great time to build a solid skincare routine since you are not fighting the harsh sun of the summer or the frigid winter temperatures. Find a simple regimen you love and throw out products and make-up that you no longer need.
Swap out heavy products for lightweight options
In the winter, heavier moisturizers and serums are used to protect the skin from colder temperatures. The skin will not need as much protection in the warmer months so you can switch to a more lightweight moisturizer or serum in the spring and summer. The Bronze Glory Balancing Moisture Cream is a lightweight moisturizer that is perfect for nourishing and conditioning the skin daily.
Continue to Use Sunscreen
Sunscreen should be used year-round to protect the skin from harmful UV rays and help fade dark marks caused by hyperpigmentation, and it should be used generously in the warmer months. Use sunscreen on the face, neck, decollete area, and body in the spring and summer. Since most people are more covered in the winter months, they may only use sunscreen on the face when it's colder, but as more of our bodies are exposed, we should also cover more of ourselves with sunscreen.
Visit your dermatologist
Spring is a great time to visit your dermatologist and discuss the health of your skin. The skin is the largest organ of the human body so having a standing appointment with your dermatologist to discuss upkeep is a great way to keep your skin looking and feeling its best.
