Spring is here, and that means it’s time to talk about switching up your skincare routine to prepare for the change of seasons. Regardless of your skin type, the transition from winter to spring can be rough on your skin. In the dry winter months, our parched skin requires a heavier moisturizer. But as heat and humidity rise, the skin’s natural oil production increases as well. So this means using lighter moisturizers and more sun protection.
But that’s not all. To look your best this season, you’ll also want to make some adjustments to how you cleanse and treat your skin. Here are our top 5 suggestions to spring clean your skincare routine:
Skin tends to be less sensitive when humidity is higher, thanks to the added moisture in the air. So now is the time to use scrubs and light exfoliating peels to brighten the appearance of your skin. Murad’s AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser helps with skin renewal and deep cleansing, while giving you a smooth canvas for treatment products and makeup.
Switch to a Lighter Moisturizer
Higher temperatures result in oilier skin for everyone, not just those with a tendency toward oily skin. It’s important to switch to a lighter moisturizer in spring. Our Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is an antioxidant-rich moisturizer that protects your skin from sun damage, while still providing lightweight hydration.
Add an Antioxidant Serum
Even when you have sunscreen on, your skin is exposed to damaging free radicals. UV exposure, air pollution and toxins all create free radicals that lead to environmental damage. An antioxidant serum will help counteract that damage, and now’s a great time to add it to your skincare routine. Murad’s Advanced Active Radiance® Serum reverses visible signs of environmental damage, while also boosting brightness and clarity.
Experiment with Essence
Essence beauty products are having their moment in the spotlight, thanks to the K-beauty trend. An essence formula is highly concentrated with active ingredients and is designed to prepare the skin for treatment. Our first-ever essence product, Hydro-Dynamic® Quenching Essence, is a silky, weightless formula that optimizes the skin’s capacity to retain hydration, leaving it soft, plump and youthful. It also leaves the skin with a dewy glow that is perfect for springtime.
Remember, spring cleaning is not just for your closet! Your skincare regimen needs an overhaul, too. We hope our tips will help you transition from winter to spring with fresh, fabulous skin.
