Top 4 Spring Skincare Tips

Top 4 Spring Skincare Tips

Spring brings to mind images of blooming flowers, warming rays of sunshine, and the buzzing of bees and birds chirping. The changing seasons also mean it’s time to do some “spring cleaning” on your skincare routine, as the environment caused by longer days and increased humidity naturally affects your skin differently than a dry and dark winter.
Shifting the products you use or your skincare routine can be a great way to keep yourself feeling fresh. Check out some of these spring skincare tips to reinvigorate your skin from its winter hibernation.

1. Start Exfoliating


Exfoliating removes the top layers of dead skin cells and dirt to reveal the healthy skin underneath. Some might shy away from regular exfoliation during the winter, as it can overly dry your skin in the cold air. But with spring comes more humidity, meaning it’s time to clear away all those skin cells that might still cling to you. When exfoliating your body, you can run a hot bath at home and gently scrub yourself down, particularly areas that accumulate dirt and sweat easily:

  • Hands
  • Elbows
  • Knees
  • Feet
  • Back

Be careful not to scrub your face too intensely, especially if you have sensitive skin, as exfoliation can quickly turn into facial irritation. Seek out mild exfoliants, like products that contain alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), or trichloroacetic acid (TCA). For professional skin care, consider a rejuvenating chemical peel or body scrub.

2. Swap to a Lighter Moisturizer

Depending on your climate, you might associate spring with rising temperatures. Using the same heavier moisturizers from the winter can cause problems when things heat up, leading to oily skin and potential breakouts.

Higher humidity in the air means your skin doesn’t dry out nearly as much, so your moisturizer doesn’t have to work too hard to keep it hydrated even if you have naturally dry skin. More lightweight moisturizers offer plenty of hydration to leave your skin feeling fresh without clogging your pores.

3. Level Up Your SPF

Spring brings longer days and more sun, which is excellent for those who love spending time outdoors but can cause severe damage to your skin without adequate protection. While it’s always a great idea to apply sunscreen if exposed outdoors for extended periods, look for products with a minimum of 30 SPF during spring. Higher SPF options might be preferable if you have sensitive skin to the sun.
High SPF sunscreen can help prevent sunburn and reduce the odds of developing skin cancer, making it a great product to utilize if swimming or any time you work up a sweat while exposed to spring’s sunshine.

4. Don’t Forget to Hydrate

The human body is roughly 60% water, making regular hydration critical to ensuring health and cycling toxins out of the body. Hydration is also a key component of our skin’s health, with dehydration often resulting in dry, dull, and inelastic skin.
Warmer climates can lead to a more significant loss of hydration through increased sweat faster than you’d expect. Top off your water bottle throughout the day to keep yourself hydrated, especially if you’re spending time in the sun.
