Covering up all winter season contributed to the accumulation of dead, dry, and flaky skin. You may have noticed your skin looking dull, and now’s the time to exfoliate to slough off those dead skin for a brighter and more radiant you. For better results, it’s best to use a liquid peel and maybe start using it every other week to give your skin a chance to breathe. You can also use a clay mask for deep cleansing of your pores and a facial scrub for when you clean your face at the end of the day.
Switch to a lighter moisturizer
No need for heavy-duty creams this season. Switch to a lighter moisturizer that still delivers hydration and can easily be absorbed by your skin. With heat and humidity on the rise, you’ll want a more lightweight moisturizer that won’t feel greasy or sticky whenever you’re out and about. While you’re at it, you may want to also go for a daily moisturizer that has a good enough SPF with it.
Level up with your SPF
Speaking of SPF, it’s time to ramp up your sunscreen come spring and even more so when summer season hits. More time under the sun means that you’ll need to double up on sun protection. First, get a sunscreen that can protect you from UVA and UVB filters because, yes, the sun can still get you even during cloudy days.
Add up the antioxidants
Spring makes us all prone to pigmentation because of extended time under the sun. Increasing our skin’s antioxidants intake can help prevent sun-induced pigmentation. Antioxidants like Vitamin C can help in slowing down our skin’s aging and decrease the effect of sun damage. Consistent use of these antioxidants can give you that natural radiant glow!
Try a caffeinated eye cream
Are you prone to allergies during spring? If your allergies are making your eyes puffy daily, you may want to consider getting a caffeinated eye cream to reduce the puffiness and brighten up the skin around your eyes. Using a rollerball applicator also contributes to a cooling massage effect.
