YOUR WARDROBE ISN’T THE ONLY THING YOU NEED TO CHANGE.
It’s spring! Time to box those boots, store those sweaters, and clean those corners. But what about your personal products? Since your skin changes with every season, it’s the perfect time to change your skin care routine, too.
Throw Out Old Products. Most lotions and potions have a one to two-year shelf life, but cluttering your cabinets with products you’re “saving for later” is just not worth it. Bacteria could grow. Expiration dates could pass. And efficacy could degrade. Toss ’em! Like that box of Benadryl that expired in 2010 and those pants that “may fit again one day.”
Switch Your Moisturizer. Dry winter skin caused by heaters, ski trips, and colder climates clearly calls for a heavier moisturizer. But the temperate weather and humidity of spring means your oil production should normalize, and you’ll want a lightweight moisturizer to keep things balanced.
Trade Your Retinol for Peptides. Retinol is the gold standard for anti-aging. But using it during sunny seasons can be dangerous, increasing the likelihood of pigmentation and chemical burns. Spring is a great time to switch to a peptide product that will continue triggering collagen production without the risks of retinol.
Get a Facial. There’s no better way to prep your skin for spring than with a facial. Slough off dead cell buildup, clear out impactions, and get advice on what your skin needs this season.
