Even though Florida winters are mild (and lovely), the cooler and less humid air affects your skin differently than it does during the spring. So now that spring has sprung, it’s time to adjust your skincare routine for the new season!
The skincare experts at Skin NV offer tips on getting healthy, gorgeous skin for the warmer days ahead.
Swap out your moisturizer. During the winter months when your skin is dry, it is better to use a heavier moisturizer. Because our skin holds more water during spring and summer, you won’t need as much protection. With that in mind, we recommend using a hyaluronic acid or water-based formula during the warmer months of the year. At Skin NV, we offer a variety of moisturizers to meet the needs of every skin type.
Beef up the sunscreen. Using SPF 30 during the winter is okay, but during spring and summer, go with a sunscreen that’s at least SPF 50. It’s also important to apply sunscreen separately from your moisturizer and make-up. Check out the medical-grade sunscreens offered at Skin NV.
Exfoliate. Spring is a great time to slough off dead skin that has accumulated over the winter months. Rather than harsh scrubs, we recommend using a gentle exfoliating cleanser. Better yet, opt for a product that has a small amount of glycolic acid in its formula. You may also consider one of the rejuvenating facial offered at Skin NV! All facials are customized based on your skin type and needs. Learn more about facials at Skin NV.
Do some spring cleaning. What’s the most important thing you can do for your skin this spring? Do some spring cleaning! Old products host a buildup of bacteria that can lead to clogged pores and dull skin. Go ahead and throw away anything that is six months or older. Makeup brushes often go overlooked and can store unwanted germs and viruses. We recommend washing your brushes at least once a week with regular hand soap and drying them with a blow-dryer.
Use lighter makeup. When it comes to makeup, the transition from winter to spring is pretty simple. In addition to tossing old products and purchasing some fun spring colors, substitute your heavy foundation for a tinted moisturizer.
