8 of The Best Spring Skincare Tips

Spring is the perfect time to refresh our skincare routines. With the changing seasons comes a shift in environmental factors, temperature, and humidity levels, all of which can impact the needs of our skin. Embracing this change and making the right skincare swaps can help us achieve a radiant complexion that glows with vitality. Here are some of our top suggestions for changes to make to your spring skin care routine:

  1. Lighten up your moisturizer: As the weather warms up, our skin tends to produce less oil, making heavy moisturizers unnecessary and potentially pore-clogging. Swap out your rich winter moisturizer for a lighter formula that provides hydration without feeling heavy on the skin. We suggest our Daily Moisture, which absorbs quickly and won’t leave a greasy residue, helping to maintain a balanced complexion as the temperature rises.
  2. Switch to a gentle cleanser: Harsh winter weather can leave our skin feeling dry and sensitive, so it’s essential to switch to a gentler cleanser for spring. We suggest our Radiant or Herbal Wash as they sweep away dirt, dead skin and oil without stripping the skin’s natural pH balance.
  3. Add a Vitamin C Serum: Vitamin C is a powerhouse ingredient known for its brightening and antioxidant properties, making it an excellent addition to your spring skincare routine. Incorporating a vitamin C serum like C 20+ can help to even out skin tone, reduce the appearance of dark spots, and protect against environmental damage. Apply it in the morning before your moisturizer and sunscreen for maximum efficacy and a radiant complexion all day long.
  4. Exfoliate Regularly: Spring is the perfect time to slough off dead skin cells and reveal the fresh, glowing skin beneath. Incorporating a gentle exfoliant into your routine 2-3 times a week can help to unclog pores, prevent breakouts, and promote cell turnover. Look for chemical exfoliants containing ingredients like alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) or beta hydroxy acids (BHAs) for effective yet gentle exfoliation, leaving your skin smooth, soft, and renewed. Our best suggestions are Serious Reveal Exfoliator (hello, glycolic!) in the PM and Serious Microderm Scrub in the AM.
  5. Protect with DNA Repair Sunscreens: Sun protection is crucial year-round, but it’s especially important as we transition into spring and spend more time outdoors. Swap out your regular sunscreen for one infused with DNA repair enzymes to provide enhanced protection against UV-induced DNA damage. These advanced sunscreens not only shield skin from harmful rays but also repair existing damage, ensuring your skin stays healthy and youthful despite sun exposure. Explore which of our DNA Repair sunscreens is right for you here.
  6. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate: Hydrated skin is happy skin, so don’t forget to hydrate from the inside out by drinking plenty of water throughout the day. Additionally, incorporating hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid into your skincare products can help to lock in moisture and keep your skin looking dewy and supple. We suggest incorporating our Advanced HA Serum with Hyaluronic Acid and 3 DNA Repair Enzymes.
  7. Invest in Professional Treatments: Consider incorporating professional treatments into your spring skincare regimen for enhanced results. Treatments such as laser therapies and microneedling can help accelerate skin repair and renewal, leaving you with a complexion that’s visibly smoother, brighter, and more youthful. Consult with a skincare professional to determine the best treatments for your specific needs and concerns.
  8. Listen To your Skin: Above all, pay attention to how your skin is feeling and adjust your skincare routine accordingly. Spring is a time of transition, and your skin’s needs may change as the weather fluctuates. Be mindful of any changes in texture, hydration levels, or sensitivity, and tailor your skincare routine to address these concerns. Whether it’s adding extra hydration, incorporating targeted treatments, or simplifying your routine, listen to your skin and give it the care it deserves.

Spring is the perfect time to refresh and renew your skincare routine, bidding farewell to the heavy creams of winter and welcoming lighter, more refreshing alternatives. By making these simple skincare swaps and paying attention to your skin’s changing needs, you can achieve a radiant complexion that glows with health all season long.
