As the seasons change, so should your skincare! With the arrival of spring, your skin may be craving different nourishment and protection compared to the colder, drier months of winter. So, we came up with some tips to help you maintain a healthy, glowing complexion as you embrace the new season...

  1. Assess Your Current Skincare Needs: Before making any changes, take a moment to assess your skin's current condition. Winter weather often leaves skin dry, sensitive, and in need of extra hydration. In contrast, spring may bring increased humidity and potential for oiliness or congestion. Identify any areas of concern such as dryness, dullness, breakouts, or sensitivity to determine how to adjust your routine accordingly. 

  2. Switch to Lightweight Formulations: Say goodbye to thick creams and choose lighter ones that are better for spring. Instead of heavy moisturizers, use ones that don't have oil or are in gel form. This helps stop pores from getting clogged and reduces extra shine on your skin. 

  3. Incorporate Hydration with Hyaluronic Acid: Hydration remains key regardless of the season, but the approach may vary. Introduce hydrating serums or essences containing hyaluronic acid into your routine. Hyaluronic acid attracts moisture to the skin, keeping it plump and supple without feeling heavy. Layer it under your moisturizer day and night to lock in hydration. 

  4. Focus on Sun Protection: With longer daylight hours and more time spent outdoors, sun protection becomes even more crucial in spring. Swap your moisturizer for one with built-in broad-spectrum SPF protection of at least SPF 30. Additionally, don't forget to apply sunscreen to exposed areas like your face, neck, and hands, even on cloudy days. 

  5. Exfoliate Regularly: Revitalize your complexion by incorporating gentle exfoliation into your routine. As winter dullness accumulates, consider a soft sugar scrub to slough away dead skin cells and reveal a brighter, smoother complexion! 

  6. Address Hyperpigmentation: Sun exposure can exacerbate hyperpigmentation, making spring an ideal time to address any existing dark spots or uneven skin tone. Incorporate brightening ingredients such as vitamin C, niacinamide, or licorice extract into your routine to fade discoloration and promote a more even complexion. 

  7. Treat Seasonal Allergies: Springtime allergies can wreak havoc on your skin, causing inflammation, redness, and sensitivity. Calm irritated skin with soothing ingredients like aloe vera, chamomile, or  butterfly pea flower. Consider adding a barrier-repairing moisturizer or a hydrating, soothing mask to alleviate discomfort and strengthen the skin's protective barrier!

Ultimately, remember to listen to your skin and adjust your routine accordingly to achieve your desired results! You can also save on all our favorite products for spring with the Teami Spring Skincare Kit!
