SPRING CLEANING TIPS FOR YOUR SKIN CARE ROUTINE
Spring is here for most of us and it's all about renewal and change. As warmer weather approaches, our skin care routine will have to change to accommodate sun exposure, dryness, and an active lifestyle. It's also a great time to reset and reboot your skin. With the changes in temperatures your skin care will also need a boost and a tweak.
With that in mind, here are some helpful tips to get your through the transition for a beautiful spring!
Check product expiration dates! Try to do this this at least 2 times a year—and what better time than spring? Most makeup and skin care products do expire, and if you keep using it, you risk break-outs and bacterial infections. Mascara should be tossed 3 times per year, liquid liner and concealer after six months, and lipstick, lip gloss, and foundation after one year. You should also check your moisturizer and sunscreen for an expiration date. If anything is expired, or you’re in doubt, throw it out!
Reorganize. Throw open your windows, toss the old, and reorganize. Now is the time to energize your skin care routine and do a deep organization of your beauty products. Once your expired products are thrown out, take an honest look at what’s left and get rid of what you never use.
Update your skin care. Most of us don’t have the same skin care needs year-round. Sometimes you stay with the same skin care routine but maybe you should add a serum or a gel cleanser to revitalize your skin care collection. Your winter moisturizer is probably too rich for summer, so it’s a good idea to switch to one that’s lighter and contains sun protection. Wake up your skin with something new.
Remove the layers. As you reorganize and update your products, make sure remove the "old" skin layers as well. Exfoliation will prep your skin for your new products. Try a peel that is gentle yet effective. A skin peel is a great way to remove the "winter" layers of skin. Try our Purifying Face Peel. It will gradually exfoliate away dead skin cells, so your face will glow! It's a great way to "Spring Clean" your face.
So embrace the new season with throwing out the old and bringing in the new!
Happy spring clean!
