Top Spring Skincare Tips For Healthier Skin This Season

Who is ready for Spring? Warmer weather, sunglasses, flowers, Springtime hikes, and cute tank tops will be here soon!  Now is it time to tell ole man Winter to buzz off and switch out those tall boots for your favorite nude heels or sandals! It also gives us a chance to switch out our Winter skincare routine to a Spring routine. And don't forget about some Spring cleaning of your skincare products! Out with the old, in with the new!

So if you are ready to brighten your skin and prepare it for the Spring, continue reading!

Switch To Lightweight Skincare Products In The Spring
There is no better time than now to start prepping your complexion for the rising temperatures and humidity! Heat can cause an increase in oil production (sebum) and can clog your pores and add that to the constant mask-wearing; I also see some Maskne breakouts on the horizon.

That’s why it’s a good idea to switch out those oil-based-serums, thick cleansers, and heavy moisturizers to some milder and lighter-weight formulas enriched with hyaluronic acid.

Hyaluronic acid helps retain moisture, making it one of the most effective ingredients for hydrating skin. When applied, it creates a protective barrier, helping to retain moisture and improve skin texture. Unlike other skincare ingredients, hyaluronic acid is very versatile and can be used with all skin types, even those prone to breakouts! Which is why I love it for Spring!

Tips to Treat Your Acne-Prone Skin This Spring By Barbies Beauty Bits

Tailor Treat Your Acne-Prone Skin This Spring
To further protect your skin from developing breakouts, consider investing in some sort of acne spot treatment. Adding a specialized product like an acne cream with powerhouse ingredients including tretinoin, clindamycin, azelaic acid, zinc pyrithione, and niacinamide, to name a few, is a great way to target particular problem areas without jeopardizing your skin's entire moisture barrier.  An effective zit zapping product can play a significant role in helping to reduce a flare-up.

Mist Me Baby, Facial Mists Are Your Best Friend
There are two types of people in this world: those who love facial mists and others who think it's overpriced scented water.  But the truth is facial mists are a skin savior, especially when the weather gets warmer. The powers of a refreshing, hydrating spritz infused with therapeutic oil, coconut water, hyaluronic acid, calming chamomile and aloe, are the best. Plus, they are easy to toss in your bag and use as a pick-me-up to refresh your skin throughout the day and achieve that plump, dewy glow.

Antioxidants Please
Antioxidants are terrific at keeping your skin looking young, fresh, and healthy. They are also one of the best ways to protect the skin from free radical damage caused by environmental factors that we expose ourselves to more so in the Spring than Winter.  If there is a magic potion that can protect your skin from premature aging caused by oxidative stress, it is an antioxidant.

Spring Clean Your Skin With Some Extra Exfoliation By Barbies Beauty Bits

Spring Clean Your Skin With Some Extra Exfoliation
Springtime is associated with renewal, and that goes for your skin, too! With its cold, dry air, Winter has more than likely caused your skin to become dull, lifeless, and flaky. Mix those dead skin cells with increased sebum levels due to the warmer Spring temperatures, and you've created a perfect road map for the skin to swell and the pore to become congested, forming a clogged and enlarged pore. And I do not know about you, but I do not want to go down that road. Instead, I say it's time to bring forth a Spring rejuvenation with some extra exfoliation!

Just like a deep Spring cleaning, where you need to remove everything. The same goes by exfoliating the skin as you remove all of those dead skin cells, unblocking pores, and uncovering fresh new layers of skin, allowing you to put your best face and body forward! Yes, we said body, as exfoliation isn’t a skincare step that should only be performed on your face; it’s also something you should be doing to the rest of your body as well. Just be sure to be gentle throughout this process and avoid using any harsh or beaded scrubs as this can lead to developmental signs of premature aging, redness, irritation, inflammation and worsen any preexisting skin conditions.

For optimal protection and visible results, use either an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) or beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) exfoliant product on your facial skin or a basic exfoliating cleansing brush. To exfoliate your body, use either a body scrub or exfoliating bar from your shoulders down. When you’re finished, be sure to lather up in lotion to keep your skin dewy and hydrated for the Spring season.

IMPORTANT TIP:
Over-exfoliation can make your skin more sensitive to the sun. So, make sure you are using an SPF, preferably one that is EWG certified.

Use A Tinted BB Cream Instead Of Foundation in Spring By Barbies Beauty Bits

Use A Tinted BB Cream Instead Of Foundation
The secret to achieving a flawless airbrushed complexion is applying a moisturizer, then primer, and finishing with a foundation and setting powder.  While that may sound great in theory, in real life, as the warmer weather sets, not everyone wants to wear a full face of makeup. Add warmer weather to the constant mask wearing because of COVID and you're on your want to breakout city!  And that is why BB creams have become ever so popular as they are great at providing light to medium coverage, masking blemishes, redness, and discolorations.  BB creams are more lightweight than foundation, making them a great choice for days when you want to feel polished without the weight of makeup. Oh, and don't forget to set with a misting spray!

There you have it, beauties! As you get ready to enjoy the beautiful Spring weather, remember to refer back to these skincare tips and use them to guide you throughout your journey to happy, healthier skin throughout Spring.
