Spring is just around the corner, and this change of seasons calls for a new skincare routine which fits the weather and your skin. It goes without saying that the winter season demands a lot of skincare and hydration to lock in moisture. But the warmer spring season triggers the skin to produce its natural oils.
So what should you do differently in spring? Here's a guide to what spring skincare everyday essentials you need:
1. Light Cleansers
Winter makes the skin quite dry and strips it of its natural moisture. But as the temperatures rise in the spring, this will no longer be a problem. Instead of using thick creams and cleansers, go for lightweight cleansers in the spring because your skin will be producing a lot of natural oils on its own.
2. Light Weight Moisturizers
The rise in temperatures may make you want to skip moisturizing, but keep in mind that not only does your skin produce oils it also produces more sweat, ultimately dehydrating your skin. Therefore you would need a lightweight moisturizer to keep the skin plump and hydrated.
Your winter moisturizers won't work because your skin needs to breathe. An excellent product for light moisturizing in spring which you can add to your skincare is our Only Skin day cream. It is lightweight in consistency and enriched with avocado oil for locking in moisture throughout the day. The bonus is that it reduces signs of aging as well!
3. Sunscreen with a Higher SPF
Sunscreens are an essential part of every skincare routine throughout the year. But when you're moving into spring, the temperatures are getting hotter and there are longer daytime hours warranting the need for sunscreen with greater SPF (at least 50) for more protection.
4. Gentle Exfoliators
It's important to cleanse and exfoliate to remove the dead skin layers of the winter and let new skin cells take their place for the spring season. You can add the Only Skin exfoliating scrub to your skincare routine for this very purpose. Designed specifically for men, our scrub eases inflammation, unclogs pores and removes any dead skin while reducing puffiness.
After using the scrub we recommend that you follow it with our night cream it will help stimulate collagen production and repair your skin while you sleep.
Now that you know all the essentials you need to transition smoothly into the spring season, get started on exfoliating first and then care for your skin daily using the Only Skin products to keep your skin glowing, hydrated and fresh for the new season. Our standard kit, it’s a great place to start!
