Winter to Spring Skin Care Tips
Spring is a time of renewal, rejuvenation and vitality. The days get longer, outdoor activities increase, and gardens flourish! During the winter months we battle dry, dull skin with deeply hydrating butters, balms and oils. But now that Spring is officially here it is time to brighten up our daily beauty regimen. Depending on the weather in your area the transition may start off a bit leisurely but sooner or later sunnier days should be met with seasonally suitable skin care.
Here are a few tips to help ease the transition and keep skin healthy and vibrant.
Detoxify: Relieve Winter’s dry skin cells and pave the way for fresh new cells with the detoxifying and enlivening effects of sea salt. Whether you soak up the benefits of sea salt in a soothing warm bath, or use a bath salt and oil to create a fresh exfoliating scrub, the result will be bright, glowing skin, increased circulation and deep relaxation. Tip: Don’t forget to exfoliate spots like feet and elbows that you kept hidden all winter.
Moisturize: Lighten up hydration levels to make room for warmer weather. If you have been using balms and oils during the day it may be time to switch to lighter lotions that contain refreshing ingredients like aloe vera. Those with a drier complexion may prefer to stick with deeper hydration until the Summer months. Tip: Balms and oils are still recommended for overnight moisture, but a little goes a long way.
Protect: Get the most out of the great outdoors by staying protected naturally. Stock up on your favorite natural, broad-spectrum sunscreen to safeguard from harmful UVA and UVB rays, and to keep skin looking youthful. With progressive damage to the ozone layer skin conditions are on the rise and sunscreen has been proven to prevent many of these ailments. Remember daily sunscreen is recommended for all skin types whether you burn or tan. Tip: Keep a tube of sunscreen in your car or purse so you are always ready for a spontaneous outing!
