You should adapt your skincare for each season.
Time to swap for lighter version of your skincare regimen.
How to switch from layering heavy products but still retain the proper amount of hydration and get that glow going for Spring?
The steps remain the same: cleanse, tone, moisturise.
Cleanse. Creamy cleansers leave a residue of fats and lips on the skin. That’s good in the winter because you have a compromised skin barrier, but you don’t need it in the spring. Swap your creamy cleanser for one that will make your skin glow such as Polaar Micro Peeling Foam with its potent concentration in vitamin C
Tone. And exfoliate.
“Just like you clean up your winter wardrobe, clean up your winter skin,” says Doris Day, MD, a dermatologist based in New York City. You can either step up your exfoliating routine to twice a week (unless you have very sensitive skin) or use a toner that will gently exfoliate such as the cult Face Vinegar from French skincare brand Gallinée
Moisturise. Trade creams for lotions. According to Dr Bowe, Dermatologist, heavy creams have lipids that stick to the skin and repair your dry winter skin barrier. When that skin barrier is already healthy, however, the extra lipids to the skin can cause clogged pores and pimples. Look for serum, lotions, or hydrating gels rather than creams.
Dr Marine Vincent recommends Caudalie moisturising sorbet cream for an instant refreshing and cooling effect while still hydrating the skin.
