How to Transition Your Skincare Routine from Winter to Spring

Your skin is due for a breath of fresh air. It has been subjected to cold temperatures, strong winds, and freezing weather for months–now it’s time to get ready for spring! Although we can breathe a sigh of relief for the sunshine and warmth ahead, we have to make sure our skin is prepared for the change. Our estheticians at Club West Med Spa have put together a guide on transitioning your skincare routine from winter to spring for maximum protection, hydration, and glow!

1. Up Your Sunscreen Game

Although you should be wearing SPF all year round, the transition into spring means it’s time to get even more serious. With more sun exposure and higher temperatures, your skin will be exposed to stronger UV rays–and the higher the UV index, the greater risk of damage. Make sure a lightweight and hydrating sunscreen is part of your daily skincare routine. A tinted SPF can help add some much-needed color to your face as well!

2. Use a Lighter Moisturizer

Now that the sun is out and humidity is higher, our skin won’t be as dry and dull as in the cold. While our winter skin drinks up all of the moisture it can get, our spring skin (which can be prone to sweating and stickiness) doesn’t appreciate a heavy layer. This means you can make the switch from a thicker moisturizer to a lighter one like a gel.

3. Use Hyaluronic Acid for Lightweight Hydration

Swap out your thick creams and lotions for lighter hydrating gels and serums. Hyaluronic acid is amazing for locking in extra hydration while still feeling light and refreshing. Read our blog post to learn more about the incredible benefits of hyaluronic acid!

4. Don’t Hesitate to Exfoliate

In the winter months, exfoliating can be harsher on your skin since it may already be irritated by the cold. When the humidity rises in the spring, our skin becomes more tolerant of stronger ingredients. Incorporating an exfoliant into your routine no more than 1-2 times a week will help you eliminate dead skin cells and brighten up your face for spring.
