Stepping Into Spring
This post is brought to you by Differin
With spring in full bloom, what better time to chat seasonal transition? While the excitement of ditching winter coats for floral rompers may be on the forefront of your mind, I thought we could switch gears a bit and discuss how to transition your skin care from winter to spring because we ain’t got no time for breakouts – am I right?
5 ways to prep your skin for sunnier days ahead:
1. Try An Acne-Fighthing Retinoid
Differin Gel has been the answer to my skincare prayers! With having an on-the-go lifestyle, I strive to keep my skincare regime simple and minimalistic, which is one reason why Differin Gel fits perfectly into my year-round beauty routine. What hooked me to incorporate Differin Gel into my skincare routine was the fact that it contains the acne-fighting retinoid adapalene, which clears breakouts deep in the pores, prevents lesions before they begin, and as a result, restores skin’s texture and tone – seriously, life-changing. If you’re looking for more information on this acne treatment, head to Differin.com for further details.
2. Ditch Heavy Foundation
Make your skin a promise that you will let it breathe this spring. Now that the winter months are gone and redness has subsided, push aside the heavier foundations and opt for lighter moisturizer. If you haven’t yet boarded the tinted moisturizer train, I highly suggest you buy yourself a one-way ticket! I use an oil free tinted moisturizer and the lightweight coverage is exactly what my skin craves this time of the year.
3. Say Goodbye To Dry Lips
We all know that weather messes with our luscious lips, so it’s time we do something about it! Finding a natural lip scrub that will buff away dry skin leaving you with a soft and smooth pout will make all the difference in your skin care game this coming season. I suggest finding an ethically sourced lip scrub, made for organic and natural ingredients. I know my lips have never been more grateful!
4. Spring Clean Your Makeup
Just like your closet, your makeup counter could also use a little spring-cleaning. Rule of thumb: any make up item that is over 6 months old belongs in the garbage. Old products could have built up bacteria, which will clog your pores. If you aren’t already in the habit of cleaning your makeup brushes, start ASAP. Doing this simple task once a week will have a glowing impact on your skin. You can find a quick and easy to use make-up brush cleaner at just about any drug store or Target!
5. Use Sun Protection
Turns out, my mom was right … again. Using daily sun protection on your face is so dang important! Try using a primer or makeup setting spray with a decent SPF level—this is a sure fire way to keep your skin protected from those harsh daily UVA rays, without straying from your favorite and go- to foundations.
