Spring Clean Your Skin in 4 Steps
Warmer weather is just around the corner (fingers crossed!) and we couldn’t be more excited, but it seems like our complexions haven’t gotten the memo. The fact is your skin needs different pampering for different seasons, so it’s time to swap out your winter Posh for fresher formulas. Here’s everything you need to know about pampering your skin for spring:
4 Products Your Skin Needs for Spring
Slough off dry winter layers with an exfoliant to help skin breathe. All those dead skin cells can clog your pores and lead to seasonal breakouts, including on your body (so much for that strapless sundress). Plus, exfoliating your body before you shave helps your razor get closer to skin’s surface, resulting in smoother legs, and is an essential step before using sunless tanner.
Warmer weather likely means more time outdoors, which is great for your mood but not so much for your complexion. The environment exposes skin to all sorts of pollutants, plus UVA/UVB rays, all of which contribute to free radical damage that makes your skin look old. Boost your skin’s natural defenses with antioxidant vitamin C, which supports collagen and reverses the appearance of premature aging.
Following your serum with sunscreen (you should be doing this already, but who are we to judge) is essential for spring and summer when you’re more likely to be exposed to sun damage, which is the number one culprit of wrinkles, fine lines, and dark spots. Apply a dime-sized amount every morning, and reapply if you’re sweating, swimming, or spending long periods of time in the sun (especially between 10 AM and 2 PM).
Try: Block It Like It’s Hot™ packs a one-two punch of SPF 30 plus aloe vera to help hydrate skin, and it includes an extra dose of vitamin C.
As the temperatures rise, your complexion tends to appear oilier and your skin craves lighter hydration to feel refreshed. Look for water-based ingredients like sodium hyaluronate and glycerin, which quench thirsty skin without adding more oil, and swap out your heavier face crème to help keep pores clear. For body, put away thick body butters and look for ones with whipped, lightweight textures, or opt for a body crème instead.
Try: Under Control™ Mattifying Hydro Gel Face Crème hydrates skin with matcha green tea water while controlling shine all day. For body, Honey Honey!™ Body Crème targets dry, rough skin with non-greasy apricot kernel oil.
So bring on spring! When you use these 4 products your skin will look fresh, dewy, and glowing. What are your go-to products for warmer weather?
