6 Tips for Your Spring Skincare Routine

6 Tips for Your Spring Skincare RoutineUnfortunately, it is not enough to figure out a skincare routine that works well for you and just stick to it all year round. Your skin needs different care during different seasons, so new season means new skincare regimen. Spring is the time of renewal, so the main goal of your spring skincare routine is to help your skin wake up from its winter hibernation and restore its healthy glow.


Most people exfoliate less in winter because exfoliation makes skin more vulnerable to the harmful effects of cold air outdoors and hot, dry air indoors, harsh winds, and other external factors. At the end of winter, dead cells build up on the skin surface, making it appear dull.

As winter transitions into spring, you can start exfoliating more, making the first step on the path to glowing skin. And we mean exfoliating your entire body, paying special attention to your knees, elbows, and other areas where the skin tends to get especially rough. You can use an exfoliating mitt in the shower for your entire body and a facial scrub for your face. And don’t forget to moisturize afterwards!

By the way, spring is the perfect time to try light chemical peels because your newly cleansed skin won’t be affected by UV radiation as much as it would in summer, when the sun is most active. If you’ve never used chemical peels before, start with products that contain low concentrations of glycolic or salicylic acid.

Boost Your SPF Protection

Speaking of UV radiation, you do need to think about sun protection in spring. Actually, you need to protect your skin from the sun all year round, but as days grow warmer, you need to start using skincare products with a higher SPF. And don’t forget that your lips need protection too, so when you switch from a thicker to a lighter lip balm, make sure that it has SPF.

Reconsider Your Choice of Moisturizer

During winter, we use heavier creams to make sure our skin is nourished and protected. There’s no need for such creams in spring though; they’ll just clog your pores and make your skin look greasy. Swap your thick winter cream for a light, oil-free moisturizer that will keep your skin hydrated while allowing it to breathe freely.

Of course, you also need to hydrate from the inside. Don’t forget to drink enough water, because as the weather gets hotter, we start losing more moisture, which affects our skin.


Spring is the perfect time to help your skin get rid of toxins that have accumulated during winter. Ingredients such as cosmetic clay, charcoal, Dead Sea mud, green tea and algae help to suck toxins our of your pores. Beauty brands offer an impressive selection of detox skincare for all skin types, but you can also try homemade detox masks to make your skin look healthy and glowing.

Get Rid of Products You Don’t Use

Before buying new skincare products to use in spring, give your skincare shelf a thorough spring cleaning. Throw everything with expired shelf life, even though it looks and smells okay. As for the products you bought but never got to use, offer them to your friends.

Try Something New

Now that you have more space on your skincare shelf, it is high time to try something new like a sheet mask, an oxygenating bubble mask, or another one of the many skincare trends that everyone’s Instagramming about. Why now? It’s spring after all, the time of change and new beginnings. If you’re not sure whether you’re going to like the new product or not, there are many ways to get free beauty samples.
