How to Transition Your Skincare Routine from Winter to Spring
With the first day of spring quickly approaching, you might be looking for product swaps to make to prepare your skin and body care routine for the warmer weather. We’ve put together a checklist for everything you need to do to transition your routine to the springtime for smooth, glowing skin.
Swap your Heavy Winter Cream for A Lightweight Moisturizer
Now that the weather’s getting warmer, your skin probably no longer requires your usual heavy-duty winter cream. Swap it out for a lightweight, hydrating moisturizer like our fan-favorite Whipped Moisturizing Cream. With skin-soothing ingredients like calendula extract, coffea arabica extract, green tea leaf extract and aloe vera gel, this moisturizer will give your skin that hydrated, glowy look so your skin will be ready for fresh spring makeup!
Exfoliate Dead Skin Cells to Reveal Your Glowiest Skin Yet
When we think of spring skincare, we think of fresh, glowing skin that’s youthful. One of the best ways to unlock that lit from within glow is with an exfoliator. Our Coffee Crush Exfoliating Peeling Gel is our secret to a smooth, bright and healthy-looking complexion. It functions as both a physical and chemical exfoliant, so you can target dullness, uneven texture, dark spots and fine lines. We like to use this once a week to keep our skin smooth and glowy!
Add a Body Scrub to Your Shower Routine
After a long winter of wearing heavy sweaters and coats, the skin on your body is probably in need of a little love to get rid of all dead skin cells and buff away dry skin. Prep the skin on your body so it’s ready for baring all with a body scrub. We love our Buffing Beans Coffee Scrub because not only does it smells like a vanilla latte, it’s actually extremely effective at revealing baby soft skin thanks to ingredients like Brown Sugar, Coffea Arabica extract and organic Grapeseed Oil. Say hello to super smooth skin.
Start Self-Tanning, ASAP!
We recommend self-tanning rather than getting a tan from the sun because of the damage the sun does to your skin and body. With the right self-tanner, you’ll give yourself a healthy glow minus the sun, and you can look tan any day of the year! Our favorite is the Lux Unfiltered Gradual Self-Tanning Cream because it’s extremely user friendly (no orange streaks here!) and smells like roses. Plus, it’s very hydrating because it’s infused with shea butter, cocoa butter, and passion fruit oil. Pro-tip: use this AFTER exfoliating for best results.
Switch to a Lighter Fragrance
One of the best ways to transition into spring is by switching out your current fragrance for a lighter one. Not only will it boost your mood, but it will put you in that spring feeling. Byredo’s Gypsy Water is a cult favorite for a reason, with notes of amber, sandalwood and fresh citrus. Perfect for a light Spring fragrance.
