There’s no better time than Spring to revamp your skin care routine. While many of us refresh our wardrobes or our hair color or take a day for spring cleaning, we often overlook the changing seasonal needs of our skin. That’s why we’re here! If you have dry, dull winter skin, here are 5 ways to achieve radiant, glowing and younger-looking skin this spring.

1. Get rid of old products

Speaking of spring cleaning, don’t overlook your skin care cabinet. Go through your collection and throw away any products that have expired - time to say goodbye!

2. Switch to a lightweight moisturizer

Change out your heavy winter moisturizer for a lightweight product that will work better in warmer weather. Bonus points if your spring moisturizer includes antioxidants, too! Antioxidants protect your skin from environmental damage caused by free radicals. We recommend AM Daily Moisturizer SPF 45+ - it’s formulated with hyaluronic acid for deep hydration, lactic acid for wrinkle reduction and vitamin E for antioxidant benefits.

3. Include SPF in your morning routine

You’ll be spending more time in the sun this Spring and UV protection is one of the best ways to prevent early signs of aging such as dark spots, fine lines and dullness. Did you know that the majority of sun damage occurs from everyday activities such as driving or sitting in front of a window? Even if you’re not spending a day at the beach or by the pool, it’s essential that you use a daily SPF with broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection.  Try Triple Duty Plus this Spring, an all-physical sunscreen. Not only do Zinc Oxide and Titanium Oxide protect your skin from harmful rays, Triple Duty Plus also provides a sheer tint and an advanced lipopeptide anti-aging complex. Its light tint is a great alternative to foundation when you want an even glow but lighter coverage. Your skin will thank you!

4. Brighten your skin with a vitamin C serum

Did you know that vitamin C works synergistically with your daily SPF to increase its effectiveness? Sun damage is the #1 cause of dull, uneven skin. Vitamin C not only boosts your sunscreen’s protection, it also offers advanced anti-aging benefits. L-absorbic acid, the form of vitamin C in CE Serum, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, strengthens your skin’s protective barrier and brightens the skin. Try CE Serum this Spring. Vitamins C and E and ferulic acid work together for brighter, more radiant skin. 

5. Use an exfoliating facial cleanser

Exfoliate dead, dry, dull winter skin with a daily exfoliating cleanser. Perfect Glycolic Cleanser contains 15% glycolic acid to exfoliate and leave dull skin looking bright and fresh. Papaya Cleanser’s natural fruit enzymes and salicylic acid exfoliate, unclog pores and draw out impurities. Papaya Cleanser is gentle enough to use as an everyday face wash – what’s more it’s also a great body wash!
