Springtime is perfect for spring cleaning your house, closets, and yards. But did you know that it’s also an excellent time to take a close look at your skin, especially your facial skin? You should be putting the work in to rejuvenating your skin after the long winter months. Nothing beats the feel and look of healthy and radiant skin.
Don’t take your skin for granted. As you may already know, “skin is the body’s largest organ, made of water, protein, fats and minerals.”1 Yes, your skin has 4 main functions:
- To act as a protective barrier
- To make new skin
- To protect your body
- To provide skin color
So why neglect your skin or not give it care, time, and attention to ensure that your skin is healthy?
It’s time to get started! Here are 5 easy springtime renewal tips for your skin:
#1. Deep Clean
A change in season often requires deep cleaning of your home and also your skin. So, switch from a dense cleanser to a lighter but hydrating wash and deep clean your pores for at least 60 seconds once daily. It removes excess impurities, grime, and debris and activates your skin’s natural rejuvenation process.
Exfoliate regularly and get rid of your dead skin cells. Use a gentle scrub or try a chemical exfoliator with AHAs and BHAs. It reveals a fresh and amazing glow and is a must in your skincare regime. It also helps you age more beautifully and increase your skin’s collagen production.
#3. Moisturizing is Must
As the weather gets a little warm, you should switch to a lightweight moisturizer. Look for something in a gel form containing hyaluronic acid and antioxidants to protect your skin’s natural barrier, lock in its moisture, and prevent free radical damage.
#4. Protect Your Skin with Sunscreen
No matter the time of the year, do not forget to protect your skin with good sunscreen. Be sure to reapply it every few hours when outdoors! Protecting your skin prevents premature aging from sun damage and regular SPF usage is proven to reduce the risk of certain skin cancers. So, don’t leave home without it!
#5. Repair for Better Rejuvenation
Without a doubt, nighttime is the best time to repair and regenerate your skin cells. While the morning routine is equally essential, nighttime can help with enhanced healing. So, wash your face, use a retinoid, your favorite moisturizer, and an antioxidant (save Vitamin C for the morning) before you hit the sheets.
