How to Transition Your Skincare Routine for Spring
With every new season comes change, and spring is no exception! We start seeing the days getting longer, temperatures heating up, and plenty of gorgeous sunshine, which can really affect your skin. That’s why it’s so important to adjust your skincare routine now for the season ahead. Check out our list of tips below for achieving healthy, glowing skin this spring.
1. Clean Out Your Skincare Shelf
Out with the old, in with the new. There’s no better time than the spring to reorganize and declutter your skincare bins. We recommend starting your spring cleaning by looking at the expiration date of each product. You can typically find this date at the bottom of the packaging. If the item is past its prime, or has any change in color, consistency or smell, toss it immediately! You don’t want to take chances when it comes to your skin. As products age, the ingredients inside become less effective. Plus, expired skincare items can become a breeding ground for bacteria, yeast and mold. The same is true for your makeup and skincare tools. Make sure to sanitize them at least once a week to keep bacteria away and prevent product buildup.
2. Say Goodbye to Nasties
While you’re sorting through your skincare products, take a deeper look at the ingredients found inside. You’d be surprised at just how many of your favorite items are formulated with harmful toxins that can irritate the skin. So, use this opportunity to detoxify your beauty cabinets and get rid of all nasties. Stock up this spring on products that support and protect the skin’s microbiome, while nourishing it deep down with essential vitamins that provide endless skin health benefits.

3. Exfoliate Dry Winter Skin Away
The dry, winter air can be really harsh on your skin! Between the bitter cold temperatures and blustery winds, your skin may end up flaky, irritated, and completely stripped of its moisture. But, don’t worry, exfoliation is key here. Products like our powderporefect powder-to-foam enzyme cleanser buff away dead skin cells that have accumulated over the winter months. Its ingredients, like papaya enzymes, jeju volcanic ash, and niacinamide, refresh and clarify the skin for a brighter, smoother complexion. Exfoliating also allows your skin to better absorb products like serums, toners, and moisturizers for even better results. While powderporefect is gentle enough to be used daily, that’s not the case with every exfoliator. For those that are more abrasive, do not overdo it. Over-exfoliating can lead to irritation and dryness. We suggest that you exfoliate anywhere from one to four times a week, depending on your skin type.
4. Don’t Forget to Moisturize
We all know that moisturizing is a major part of any wintertime skincare routine, but did you know it’s just as crucial in the spring? Rather than using a thick cream, switch over to a lightweight moisturizer like the glowburst intense hydration boosting cream. This cream transforms into tiny droplets when applied, hydrating the skin deep down for a fresh, dewy glow. Unlike traditional face creams used throughout the winter, glowburst offers a cooling sensation without ever feeling sticky or heavy. Also, as you’re exposed to more sun during these spring months, your skin may dry out. With glowburst’s calming blend of desert rose leaf extract, resurrection plant, and blue agave leaf extract, you’ll be able to seal in moisture and even soothe sunburned skin.
5. Swap Out Your Foundation For Serum
When the weather starts warming up, the last thing you want on your face is a thick, heavy foundation that may clog pores, cause blemishes and create a shiny, oily complexion. Instead, opt for less! Ditch your foundation this spring for a lightweight face serum like the glowshot supercharged hydrating serum. With its powerful, yet weightless formula, your skin is left hydrated and refreshed. This serum truly delivers the perfect all-day glow made for those “no-makeup” kind of days.
Whether it’s cleaning out and updating your skincare collection or going makeup-less with a lightweight serum, this is the time to give your skincare routine the spring makeover it deserves. Even the smallest changes can make a real difference in the way your skin looks and feels this season.
