As if time and gravity weren’t enough! It seems there…
With the chilly winter season and all those horrid skin conditions that it brings finally giving way to the warmth of spring, it’s that time of the year when you need to start off with spring cleaning and update your wardrobe for the coming spring and summer seasons. We often clean our wardrobes, our house and everything around us, but we end up forgetting that one important detail – our skin care products. Finding skin care products and devising skin care routines that really work can prove to be very challenging, even for the most ardent skin enthusiast. This is why Vine Vera helps you transition your skin care into spring by highlighting the things that need changing in your skin care regimen.
Understanding the difference
The biggest difference between winter skin care and spring skin care is that during the winter season, you need products that supplement your skin to cover up for the lost moisture. On the other hand, once the temperatures begin to rise, the moisture problem is far lesser. At this time, you would want to ensure that you don’t use products that end up being too heavy for your skin.
Choose lighter formulations
It always makes sense to choose a lighter formulation for the spring and summer months. With the added humidity in the air, you can forego those heavy products and simply make use of your lightweight moisturizers and booster serums. Try to phase out your products in a slow and steady manner, because a drastic change might make your skin react to the new regimen.
Transitioning your cleanser for spring
Always opt for a gentle, yet effective cleanser when it comes to spring cleansing. Look for ingredients such as chamomile, jojoba oil and musk oilin your cleansers, because they can ensure that your skin gets cleansed off the dirt, impurities and makeup without losing its soft and pampered look.
Regulate the use of body butters
Winters might be the perfect time to use those body butters all over your skin, but as the temperature begins to rise, you need to start using the body butter judiciously. Restrict its use to the driest parts of the body such as your knees, elbows, neck, hands, feet and décolleté.
Look for a gentler exfoliation routine
The arrival of spring also calls for a gentle exfoliation routine that lets you get rid of the dead skin cells from the outermost layer of your skin without causing irritation or damaging your skin. The ideal way to do this is to add an at-home deep peel such as the Resveratrol Merlot Refining Peeling into your weekly skin care routine. This exciting peel gives you a beautiful looking cleanse and manages to get rid of the dirt and grime that get stuck on your skin, without causing irritation or making your skin look dry.
Don’t underestimate the power of serums
Most of us make the mistake of packing away our serums the moment we bid our farewell to the winter months. VineVera recommends you to hold onto those serums because they are highly productive in maintaining the moisture levels of your skin and promoting skin healing from deep within. As an added plus, they also make your moisturizers more effective.
Keep a spot treatment on hand
The spring weather, particularly around March, is known to be very unpredictable. Acne breakouts due to the temperature whiplash are a common feature for millions of people all over the world. Vine Vera recommends that you keep a spot treatment on hand to reduce your breakouts. All-rounder serums that hydrate your skin, treat aging signs, minimize redness and also deal with acne are the best options to go for during the spring months.
Choose the right moisturizer
After months of moisture barren weather, your skin is in some serious need of hydration. You need to replenish the lost moisture and rebuild your skin to bring back its summer beauty and softness. Look out for a moisturizer that contains ingredients such as resveratrol, vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, glycolic acid and vitamin E, because it can double up as a skin protector and a moisturizer. And when it comes to moisturizers, your best bet is to go for one that is lightweight, but still packs a punch.
