Spring is the perfect time to switch things up and improve your skincare routine. A time for new beginnings, spring offers us the chance to give our largest organ the extra TLC it deserves. Warmer weather and longer days mean more exposed skin and more opportunity for that exposure to cause issues. Keep your skin healthy and balanced with some of our helpful tips, and soon your friends will be asking how the heck you keep your skin glowing!
Exfoliate Your Bod
After a long, cold winter, your skin is bound to be dry and flaky (unless you are some kind of enigma). The best way to remove that dead skin and reveal fresh, smooth skin is to exfoliate regularly. Check out a gentle exfoliating cleanser bar like Kiel's "Ultimate Man" Body Scrub Soap or CeraVe's SA Cleanser Bar for Rough and Bumpy Skin. To promote cell turnover and improve skin dullness, exfoliating with a bar like one of these once or twice a week will make a noticeable difference in both look and feel.
Sun's Out, Guns Out
We recently talked about Sun Awareness Week on our social accounts (celebrated each year during the first week of May). It is the perfect time to talk about protecting your skin from harmful UV rays because we spend much more time outside. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher daily, even on cloudy days. You can also wear preventative clothing and accessories like hats, shirts, and swimwear with built-in UV-protective technology. Another way you can protect your skin is by seeking our skincare item ingredients with sun-blocking natural abilities, such as raspberry seed oil, aloe vera, and shea butter.
Pare Down Your Skincare Routine
Heavy moisturizers and creams perfect for winter may not be 100% essential for spring. Switch to lighter, simpler products such as hydrating serums and bar cleansers to avoid clogging pores and feeling weighed down. You may also consider swapping out your heavy foundation and concealers for a lightweight, tinted moisturizer containing protective SPF. This way, you give your skin a much-needed break while avoiding any sun-induced damage.
Springtime means more pollen and allergens in the air, which can lead to breakouts and irritation. Be sure to thoroughly cleanse your skin once or twice daily to remove dirt, oil, and impurities. If you have sensitive skin, look for a gentle, pH-balanced cleanser that won't strip your skin of its natural oils. One of our favorites is also one of the world's top-selling bar cleansers: the classic Dove Beauty Bar.
Following these simple tips, you can face the season with healthy, glowing skin that will carry you through to summer.
