Spring is finally here and it’s time to do a little spring cleaning for your skincare routine. After celebrating through the holidays at the end of the year and the cooler weather it is time to change up your skincare routine to match the seasons! As the seasons change, so should your products and routines.   
Seasonal skincare is not something many people focus on, but DCSI wants to share some of our Spring skincare tips to get your glow back! 

Exfoliate Weekly

Exfoliating is a primary part of spring skincare, but it is important to not overdo it! You’ll want to find products without harmful ingredients like apricot kernels. Instead, you’ll want to find AHA-based products for gentler but effective exfoliating.    Products with microbeads are also harmful to the environment. Instead, use products that use rice grains, bean powder, or other eco-friendly ingredients. 

Banish Blemishes

Spot treatments are great to target spring skin issues and blemishes. Ingredients like salicylic acid help clear up blemishes. It is also not a good idea to try any extractions, blackheads or whiteheads, at home. Serious damage can be done if not careful or done by a professional. 

At-Home Skin Peels

Something you can do at home for skincare in the spring season is an at-home skin peel. Fruit peels can help remove rough patches, mild glycolic, or lactic acid peels are also generally safe. It’s best to patch test any peels you try before covering your whole face to ensure your skin isn’t sensitive to it. Other peels with ingredients like phytic acid, mucor fungal extract, grape juice extract, or tangerine peel will help even skin tone and reduce signs of aging. 

Feed Your Skin From Within

One of the best spring skincare tips we can is to take care of your skin from within. Collagen makes up a large portion of the dermis, is a huge factor in skin strength and joint flexibility, and decreases with age. A vital part of seasonal skincare is to look into a collagen supplement to help maintain smooth skin and joint health.

Weekly Face Masks

There are so many different face masks to target the issues you may be having or what to address. You can find out which face mask is best for you by identifying your skin type and talking to your dermatologists about your concerns. 

Remember to Wear Sunscreen

Sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30 should be applied 30 minutes before going outside. If you are going to be outside all day it is imperative to reapply regularly. SPF is also something that should be used daily, even on a cloudy day to prevent sun damage and early signs of aging. 

Switch to Lighter Products

Now that the weather is warming up, you can switch to a lighter moisturizer and foundation. Hyaluronic acid is an effective ingredient for increasing brightness and skin texture. You can find this as a stand-alone serum or within products like moisturizers and foundations. Oil-free moisturizers will also sit lighter on the skin which is great if it is warmer outside!
