As the weather outside changes, so too must our skincare routine. With the weather warming up and frigid chills in the background, now is the perfect time to usher in change, starting at your bathroom sink. Adjusting your skin care routine for the elements is a fantastic way to make sure that you are giving your skin the care and attention that it deserves.
How Does Warm Weather Impact My Skin?
The skincare needs that you explore in winter will change dramatically as spring rolls into view. With warmer temperatures on the horizon, individuals with normal complexion may find themselves suddenly dealing with excess oil and all the breakouts that come with it.
In addition to oily skin complicated your beauty routine, warm weather can also impact our skin through sun exposure. Sun blemishes lead to darkened spots on the skin, leaving an uneven texture and tone in their wake. Along with darkened spots, sun exposure can lead to potential consequences, including skin cancer, the most common type of cancer in the United States.
Let’s look at a few ways we can adjust our skincare routine as spring gets into full swing.
Boost Your SPF to Protect Your Skin
First and foremost, spring will probably feature more extensive outdoor activities than winter. That means that you will need to add a solid SPF to your routine to protect your skin. There are plenty of SPF options to consider, including combination sunscreen and moisturizer products like the Holy Veil tinted sunscreen and primer by James Anthony Skincare. This product can be used alone or beneath your makeup as a hydrating SPF designed to keep you free from sun damage.
Exfoliate & Hydrate With Face Masks
During winter, we tend to hide away from the elements outside. Even when we do go outdoors, the cold can leave our skin feeling chapped, dried out, and altogether dull. In order to revitalize our skin for our spring shenanigans, we need to get into the habit of exfoliating while properly restoring our moisture balance. This can be accomplished by incorporating something like the Smooth Move Exfoliating & Hydrating Face Mask by James Anthony Skincare.
The Smooth Move face mask features:
- Aloe Vera
With a hydrating and exfoliating mask like this one, we can remove dead skin cells that have accumulated throughout the long and cold winter. In doing so, we can also moisturize and hydrate our skin at once, protecting the moisture barrier that is so important to our health and wellness routine.
Address Sun Spots With a Retinoid Cream
Now that we are getting ready to go back out into the world, let’s take some time to address those problematic sun spots and dark marks that we’ve been dealing with. The Ressurect PM Treatment is a retinoid cream that blends 0.1% Retinol, Passiflora Edulis Seed Oil, and Vitamin E for a restorative blend that addresses dark spots while also reducing wrinkles, fine lines, and acne.
As with any new addition to your beauty and wellness routine, consider asking a professional for guidance!
