After months of dry indoor air and harsh cold weather outside, you need to adjust your skincare routine to give your skin the care it needs for a healthy complexion. Discover three tips to tweak your skincare routine for radiant springtime skin.
1. Spring Clean Your Makeup Tools
Spring is the ideal time to give your home a thorough clean. While spring cleaning your bathroom, make sure you clean and sanitize your makeup tools. Brushes and sponges are a breeding ground for bacteria, leading to breakouts, rashes, and skin infections.
Wash your makeup tools in warm water with a gentle soap like FaceDoctor Rejuvenating Soap. Wet your brushes and sponges and lather with the soap. You can also rub the soapy brushes on a textured silicone mat to clean further down into the bristles. Rinse with clean water, then air dry flat.
2. Use a Gentle Exfoliant
During the winter, layers of clothing or a poor skincare routine can cause dead skin cells and oils to build up on your skin—slough off winter skin with a gentle exfoliant.
Opt for a chemical exfoliant that uses ingredients such as alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and beta hydroxy acids (BHAs) rather than mechanical exfoliants that feature abrasives. Abrasive ingredients can cause microtears in the skin and strip the skin of its natural oils. Exfoliate once or twice per week and follow with a serum and moisturizer such as FaceDoctor Beauty Cream to keep your skin hydrated.
3. Wear Sunscreen
Spring weather can be unpredictable, but it is crucial to wear sunscreen every day, even when the days are overcast. Apply a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or 50 sunscreen at the end of your skincare routine. Broad-spectrum products protect your skin from UVA (aging) and UVB (burning) rays.
