SWAP OUT YOUR HEAVY MOISTURIZER
Moisturizer is so important to every skin care routine, but using heavy creams in the spring time can actually cause unnecessary breakouts! As we transition into Spring we highly recommend to switch from the heavy, hydrating moisturizers and oil-based products to a lighter product, like a hydrating serum! In those heavy, hydrating cremes are lipids that stick to our skin and are meant to repair and protect during those dry winter months. Now that we are entering into a warmer season that skin barrier is now healthy and those extra lipids ,that are no longer needed, can cause clogged pores and pimples.. Ya no thanks! So swap out your winter skin care products and opt for something more light weight.
As we say goodbye to winter, we need to introduce stronger cleansers into our skin care routine. In the winter we tend to use creamy and hydrating cleanser, but these need to be transitioned into a normal cleanser in the spring. Just like heavy moisturizers, those creamy cleansers leave a residue of fats and lips on the skin. And that's amazing in the winter because we have a compromised skin barrier, but we no longer need that in the spring. Keep these cleansers in mind: foaming and normal (non-soap, pH-balanced cleanser). Opt for the normal cleanser once the weather warms up, unless your have especially oily skin, then try a foaming cleanser that can help remove extra oils.
