Spring is finally starting to make its debut! It’s time to do some spring cleaning and that includes your bathroom toiletries & makeup bags.

Follow these 3 tips to transition your skin into spring:

 

#1: Out With the Old

Time to dump everything out and evaluate your regimen. Skincare products & cosmetics all have a shelf life so staying on top of this is key to clear skin in the warmer weather. If you don’t know how long you have had it, then toss it. It’s also a good idea to toss your makeup bag in the wash and clean all face, hair & makeup brushes with antibacterial soap.

Fellas, this includes you too! Your hair and beard brushes need a deep cleanse too.

 

#2: Use Lighter Moisturizersskincare

In the winter, heavy creams helped to keep the moisture on the skin all day. In the warmer months, applying heavy creams combined with sweating outside can clog pores and cause extra oil production on the skin. This is why spring and summer is great for the lighter moisturizers. For normal skin types, select a hydrating serum or dimethicone-based lotion. For oily skin types you can do well with an extremely light emulsion or just skip to the sunscreen. Definitely, don’t forget your sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher!

 

#3: Brighten and Peel

One way to brighten the skin all over the body is by using sugar scrubs made with light oils. You can DIY this or find amazing scrubs made locally in the DELUX Business Directory.

This is also the perfect time for a seasonal peel and visit to your skincare professional or dermatologist. Many chemical peels have brightening agents that can help with dark spots and pigmentation. You can also get the peel on other parts of your body such as your back and legs.

Have you started spring cleaning yet? What are your go-to products for the hot seasons?
