Spring and summer facial care should be inherently different from winter care, because our skin has different needs depending on the season. For winter, thicker, moisture-heavy products help keep skin protected from the cool air, but in the spring, lighter weight products should be used. These products should offer the same skin-soothing benefits, but at a lighter weight.
If you’re ready to ditch the heavy creams and lotions and start your new routine, here are a few steps from Cinzia Spa in Myrtle Beach that you can take to spring forward into better skincare.
Exfoliating your skin not only helps get rid of that dull, dry skin that can sometimes accumulate on our face and body, it can also help our lotions and serums work better, requiring us to use less product and achieve beautiful results.
Apply a Weekly Face Mask
Weekly face masks are not only a great way to address skin problems you may be having, such as dry skin, acne, or fine lines and wrinkles, but they are also a moment or two of self care you can rely on each week. Choose a mask that addresses your individual needs and you’ll be glowing in no time!
Always Use Sunscreen
Even if you aren’t a sunbather, you should always wear sunscreen – even in the winter. Sunscreen protects your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Sun exposure can be dangerous to the skin, causing skin discoloration, sun spots, and even skin cancer. Be sure to choose a minimum of SPF 15 (the higher the SPF, the better) that is broad spectrum, meaning it protects your skin against both UVA and UVB rays. Zinc based formulas are best, because they use natural ingredients that won’t harm your skin.
Switch to a Lighter Moisturizer
In the warmer months, using a heavy moisturizer is not only not necessary, it can actually clog your pores and cause breakouts, making your skin look worse. Switching from a heavy duty cream to a light lotion or tinted moisturizer in lieu of makeup is a great way to lighten up but still get the coverage you need in the warmer months.
