Spring Forward: 3 Tips for Transitioning Your Skincare Routine

Spring Forward: 3 Tips for Transitioning Your Skincare Routine 

Spring has almost sprung. And as we prepare to spring forward this weekend, it’s time to start thinking about your skincare routine.

The winter season’s dry, cold air does a number on our skin — and we’ve all responded with lotions, creams, serums and treatments galore. 

Luckily, spring brings more than just April showers and May flowers: Spring is the season of shaking up your skincare routine. And that goes for your A360 treatments, too!

Here, we’re sharing three simple tips for transitioning your skincare products from winter to spiring. But remember, everyone’s skin is unique, so a consultation with your A360 aesthetician is the best way to ensure you are using the best possible medical-grade products for every season. 

  1. Lighten Up Your Moisturizer: Swap your daily moisturizer — which might be an ultra-hydrating formula for the winter months — for something a little lighter for spring. Skin tends to hold more water in the warmer months, so you don’t need quite as much hydration as you do during the chilly and super-dry winter months. And remember: SPF in your moisturizer or makeup alone won’t do the trick in the summer sun (or any season, for that matter!). Make sure to add a separate SPF — we recommend SPF 50+, like SkinBetter Science Sunscreen Stick — to your arsenal if you aren’t already doing so.
  2. Bring On the Exfoliation: It’s time to rid your skin of dead skin cells and unblock those pores after a harsh winter. Reach for a gentle exfoliating cleanser, like Restorsea PRO Foaming Cleanser, for daily use. Or, try a gentle exfoliator like the limited-edition Revision Skincare Café Dulce Cleansing Scrub to cleanse, exfoliate and hydrate for that sunny, springtime glow.
  3. Clean Out Your Cabinet: Spring cleaning doesn’t only apply to your home and wardrobe — your skincare products need a once-over, as well. A good rule of thumb is to throw out any product that’s been open for more than six months (unless otherwise specified on the product). Old and expired products can create a breeding ground for bacteria. Ick!
