Since the spring season is all about renewal we’re big believers that your skin care routine should be too!. As you shed those heavy winter layers and re-organize your closet with some of your favorite sun dresses and light layers, you might also want to consider doing the same to your skin care routine. Not sure where to start? We share eight tips and tricks to help you get your skin ready for warmer weather below.
#1: TARGET DULL-LOOKING SKIN WITH A LIQUID PEEL
Is your post-winter complexion looking a bit on the dull side of the spectrum? Visibly brighten things up with an antioxidant-rich liquid peel! We love The Body Shop’s Vitamin C Liquid Peel. The Glow-Revealing Liquid Peel is formulated with vitamin C-rich camu camu berries from the Amazonian Rainforest and can target dull, tired, dull-looking skin.

#2: DEEP CLEAN WITH A MUD MASK
Can your skin use a good spring cleaning? Deep cleanse with a purifying mud mask—such as, Biotherm’s Skin Best Wonder Mud face mask. Formulated with green micro-algae and rhassoul extracts, the brand’s mud mask can help to unclog pores, remove urban impurities, and reveal a more radiant-looking complexion in just three minutes!

#3: ROCK A FAUX GLOW
Can’t wait to rock a summer glow? This year, stay out of the sun and get your faux glow on with a self-tanner! We love L’Oréal Paris’ Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Serum for its ability to give a natural-looking self-tan. Add it to your body lotion or use it on its own for gorgeous, bronzed skin.

#4: REFRESH WITH A FACIAL MIST
In need of a little refreshment? Give your complexion a quick burst of hydration with a spritz of Vichy’s Mineralizing Thermal Water! Formulated with 15 active minerals, this hydrating drugstore facial mist can help to strengthen the skin’s natural moisture barrier function and help to protect your skin from environmental aggressors too!

#5: HYDRATE WITH A RENEWING CREAM
Reach for a renewing cream, such as the Pure Vitality Renewing Cream from Kiehl’s. We love this renewing cream for its ability to help improve the complexion’s overall resilience for smoother texture and a more youthful-looking radiance.

#6: TARGET PUFFINESS WITH A CAFFEINATED EYE CREAM
If puffy-looking eyes are your springtime woe, you might want to consider reaching for a caffeinated eye cream or serum that can help brighten and reduce the appearance of tired, fatigued-looking eyes. We love Garnier’s Clearly Brighter Anti-Puff Eye Roller. Formulated with antioxidant-rich vitamin C and caffeine, the gel-like formula instantly cools and refreshes upon application. What’s more? The micro-stimulating roll-on applicator can help to reduce under-eye puffiness, too!

#7: ILLUMINATE WITH A GLOW-ENHANCING CC CREAM
In a pinch? Enhance your spring glow with an illuminating CC cream, such as The Body Shop’s Instaglow CC Cream. Formulated to reduce the look of sallowness and brighten the look of the complexion, this two-in-one skin care-inspired beauty product can correct the look of the skin’s tone, moisturize for up to 24 hours, minimize the look for pores, reduce excess shine, and more!

#8: GET YOUR SOLES SANDAL-READY WITH A FOOT SCRUB
We’ll admit, we’re always a little scared to pull our winter socks off and get a good look at our feet after a long, cold winter season. But, as scary as it can be, spring time is the best time to get your soles sandal-ready with weekly exfoliation and at-home pedicures! When it comes to sloughing off dry, dead skin cell buildup from the surface of our heels and toes, we reach for The Body Shop’s Peppermint Reviving Pumice Foot Scrub. Formulated with the brand’s Community Trade peppermint oil and pumice granule from volcanic rock, this cooling foot scrub can help you achieve softer, smoother, summer-worthy soles in no time.
