Look as fresh as a blooming flower this spring when you make the necessary changes in your daily skin care habits. As you create a spring cleaning list for your home, make sure that you create one for your skin, too! Don’t forget to include the following:
Look for lighter formulas
Ditch your heavy-duty creams for airier lotions or serums. In the spring, your skin is typically oilier, which means your complexion can handle stronger skin care ingredients, like retinol, to help improve skin tone, fight acne, and minimize the appearance of fine lines. “Retinol can be really drying and irritating in the winter,” says Peredo. “It’s a good thing to add it back into your spring routine.” For those with oily skin, Peredo recommends using a gentle astringent, like witch hazel, in the morning and at night, to help clear pores and dab away excess oil.

Prepare for hair removal
If, like many women, you’ve paid a lot less attention to body hair during winter months, you may be facing a major de-fuzzing come spring and summer. According to beauty expert Claudia Spagnolo, among the best things you can do for your skin is a full-body exfoliating scrub before you do any hair removal treatments.
“If you use a mild natural ingredient like brown sugar to gently, and I repeat, gently rub your body several days before having a waxing or chemical hair removal, you’ll loosen and remove dead skin cells, which will not only make your hair removal easier but also safer,” says Spagnolo.

Grab some lip balm
Your luscious lips undergo changes from winter to spring. If you’re experiencing dry or chapped lips, you’re not alone. Lip balm to the rescue! Carry a protective lip balm with super-hydrating components like beeswax, Shea butter, nut oils, and cocoa butter, and give your pout some love. Rosy color or shimmery sheen are optional, but why not? Spring has sprung! Source: WomansHealthMag
