6 Skincare Tips to Get Glowing Skin for SpringMarch 09, 2022
After a long winter of applying heavy-duty moisturizers and facial oils, you might feel like your skin is in need of a reset. With the temperatures getting warmer, now is the perfect time to transition your skincare routine for spring. Not sure where to start? Check out these six spring skincare tips that will help prepare your skin for the warmer months ahead.
Target Dull-Looking Skin With a Liquid Peel
Is your post-winter complexion looking a bit dull? Try incorporating a gentle liquid peel into your routine, like the Kiehl’s Milk-Peel Gentle Exfoliating Toner. A combination of lipo-hydroxy acids, almond milk and emollients gently exfoliate without stripping your skin of much-needed moisture. The formula is so gentle, you can use it every day for a soft, refreshed complexion.
Deep Clean With a Clay Mask
If your skin requires a deeper spring clean, use the Vichy Mineral Pore Purifying Clay Mask to detoxify and degunk your pores. It’s made with a combination of kaolin and bentonite clays to draw out impurities and visibly minimize the look of large pores.
Refresh With a Facial Mist
Give your complexion quick bursts of hydration throughout the day with a spritz of the Cocokind Rosewater Facial Toner. This refreshing mist helps soothe, hydrate and balance your skin’s pH levels. You can mist it on freshly cleansed skin or throughout the day for a quick pick-me-up.
Target Puffiness With a Caffeinated Eye Cream
If allergies are making your eyes puffy, you might want to consider reaching for a caffeinated eye cream to help brighten and reduce the appearance of puffy, tired eyes. We love the L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Hyaluronic Acid + Caffeine Hydrating Eye Serum. Hyaluronic acid helps plump up the skin while caffeine depuffs and tackles dark circles. The triple-rollerball applicator also offers a cooling massage effect.
Hydrate With a Lightweight Cream
Instead of sticking to an ultra-rich moisturizer, reach for a lightweight cream, such as the La Roche-Posay Toleriane Double Repair Face Moisturizer. We love this formula for its lightweight consistency; it quickly absorbs into the skin and offers a dewy glow.
Get Your Soles Sandal-Ready With a Foot Scrub
To slough off dry, dead skin cell buildup from the surface of your heels and toes, reach for a tool like the Daily Concepts Foot Scrubber which is made with lava stone pumice to help remove calluses and dry skin. Be sure to follow up with a nourishing body moisturizer like the Carol’s Daughter Love Butter Body Balm.
Fake a Sun-Kissed Glow
Can’t wait to rock a summer glow? Give yourself a safe tan with the L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Facial Mist. It’s easy to use, hydrating and gives skin a natural-looking bronze boost.
