With Spring in full swing, many seasonal skincare trends are cropping up that are worth a second look. Spring skincare focuses primarily on preparing your skin regimen for the increased sun exposure in the coming months, but there are other trends that can help elevate your routine.
Managing the Unpredictable
In most places around the world, Spring carries unpredictable weather patterns and temperature fluctuations. This can wreak havoc on your skin as your battle the winter dryness in addition to newly extended UV exposure.
To tackle this, Spring skincare trends toward lightweight moisturizers to maintain the health of your skin without clogging your pores on warmer days. Light, non-greasy formulas are rampant at the moment, with water-based moisturizers and natural products taking the lead.
Don’t skimp on the SPF
As the Spring weather takes you outdoors more frequently, it is absolutely vital to wear SPF every day. While it’s always important to protect your skin from the sun’s rays, it becomes even more essential in the warmer months when picnics and long walks became the norm.
Try a light mineral sunscreen, with an SPF of 30 or higher. DO remember to reapply throughout the day if you’re spending time outside. Powder sunscreens can be a great option for makeup wearers who want to reapply without messing up makeup.
Slough off the winter (gently)
Spring can be a great time to explore new exfoliation options in order to buff away the built-up dry skin of winter. Gentle chemical exfoliants, like glycolic acid toners, are trending in lots of skincare lines.
As you venture into new exfoliation tactics, remember to begin minimally and be conservative when trying out new products. Exfoliants can be particularly harsh on sensitive skin, so always use sparingly and patch test first.
