As our season changes into spring, your skincare regimen should change as well. Transitioning from the cold, dark and dry climate that comes with the winter months can be a big change for our bodies, especially our skin.

With spring comes a little more sunlight, warmer temperatures, and humidity. All three of these factors can have an effect on the health of our skin and your complexion throughout the spring and summer. This means being super cautious when in direct sunlight for an extended period of time, and using the proper products to protect your skin. Here are some helpful tips that you can follow for better skin this spring.

Update 

Out with the old heavy creams and moisturisers that you’ve been using over the past months, turn to a lighter product that includes an SPF 15 or higher to protect your skin from the sunnier days. Be sure to look for products that are tailored toward your skin type.

Hydrate, Eat Well and Live Healthy

Having several servings of fruits and vegetables each day can give your skin the vitamins and minerals it needs and drinking plenty of water. Getting exercise several times a week can also be very beneficial. Always remember to wash and rinse your face before and after any workout. Sweat will clog pores and cause pimples. Remember to wash your face before sleep, this is especially true because the skin repairs itself at night while you sleep, so your makeup can clog your pores and not allow the skin to breathe.

Shed Some Layers

Our skin can be left dull and dry over the winter period, your skin could benefit from a gentle exfoliator, to help fight breakers and brighten your skin to keep your skin glowing throughout the spring. Exfoliation involves the removal of the oldest dead skin cells on the skin’s outermost surface. Exfoliation is involved in all facials, during microdermabrasion or chemical peels.

Sleep – 8 hours a day

Getting ample rest can have huge impact on the quality of your skin. Just as important are the conditions in which you sleep. Try to keep your bedroom cool when you sleep to prevent night sweats. This can clog pores and also make it more difficult to sleep fully throughout the night. Be sure to change your sheets, especially you’re pillowcases, on a regular basis. The oils from your hair and skin, as well as dead skin, are left behind each night and can be the culprits behind skin breakouts.

No tan is a good tan.

Any time that you are outside for an extended period this spring always make sure to apply sunscreen to avoid burning. Those with sensitive skin should use a quality sunblock and apply the protectant every hour. Sun burn can lead to serious health concerns, not to mention damage skin and leave sunspots. Even if you have dark skin tone it can help to apply sunscreen to keep skin from irritating or UV damage. Certain brands of sunblock can even act as moisturisers for the skin as well, keeping it hydrated and glowing throughout the day.

This spring, make sure you take good care of your skin so that it’s both clear and glowing. Taking the extra time to tend to your skin in the changing season will make all the difference. With these tips, you will surely look vibrant and beautiful all spring.
