Spring is officially here! After months of battling dull, dry-looking skin, now is the time to reawaken your look to its full potential! It’s time to swap out your cold weather beauty products with something that’s more suited to spring conditions.
“CHANGES in weather can wreak havoc upon the skin, and the arrival of a new season is the perfect time to reassess your beauty regime accordingly,” says Lisa Niven from Vogue Magazine.
With that in mind, here are 4 useful tips to help your skin “spring” beautifully into the season:
1. Add moisture and hydration to the skin
The winter elements tend to draw moisture from the skin and spring is the perfect time to make up for lost hydration. During the winter months, a heavy moisturizer works but in warmer (and more humid) weather like Florida, you may want to opt for a light-weight moisturizer.
To add moisture back into tired and dry skin, we recommend Sweet Red Rose Whip Moisturizer, which adds a medium finish and works well with normal to dry and even sensitive skin types.
2. Consider changing up your cleanser
The cleanser you use to combat winter skin woes may not be the best choice for spring.
According to Hello Magazine, “your skin care routine in spring should be aimed at recuperating the vitality of your epidermis from the effects of winter and protecting it from future cold-weather assaults. Cleansing milk and other skin-renovating cosmetics can be helpful”.
A light milk cleanser like Sweet Red Rose Cleanser or Calm Skin Chamomile Cleanser adds moisture back into the skin and is gentle enough to combat sensitivities that might have been brought on by harsh winter conditions.
3. Apply daily SPF protection
You’re finally able to get outside into the warmth and sunshine. Vitamin D is important to your health and wellbeing so we encourage you to take advantage of those rays, but don’t forget to also protect your skin with a daily SPF moisturizer.
Tropical Vanilla Day Cream SPF 32 (face) is a must-have daily product. It contains zinc oxide that provides broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection while giving your skin a soothing vanilla fragrant aroma. If the sun has already gotten to you a little too much, Stone Crop Body Lotion is perfect for hydrating burnt skin. It contains BioComplex, which is a booster of antioxidants, vitamins, and Alpha Lipoic Acid to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve the appearance of your skin.
4. Moisturize & exfoliate your whole body
After months of covering yourself in sweaters, scarves and wool socks-use this time to give your body a spring makeover. After months of neglect, give your skin the attention it deserves.
To treat the overlooked areas of your body, we suggest an all-over exfoliant like Coconut Sugar Scrub which removes dry skin while adding moisture and nourishment back into the skin.
