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.
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.
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.
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!
