As the seasons change and warmer weather approaches, it's the perfect time to revamp your skin care routine with a little spring cleaning. Just like tidying up your home, decluttering and refreshing your skin care products can lead to a healthier, clearer complexion. 

Why Spring Clean Your Skin Care Routine?

Product Expiry: Over time ingredients within your skin care break down and thus lose theireffectiveness. Products with active ingredients, for example vitamin C, break down quickly if exposed to sunlight or not stored in a dark/cool place. Using expired products can lead to skinirritation, breakouts, and decreased efficacy. If it’s expired, changed in color, texture, or scent- toss it!

Skin Needs Change: Your skin’s needs can vary depending on the weather and environmental factors. With the transition to Spring, your skin may require lighter formulas and different ingredients to combat seasonal issues like increased oiliness or sensitivity.

Optimize Results: Regularly reassessing your skin care routine ensures that you’re usingproducts that deliver results. By eliminating products that don’t work for your skin or duplicate functions, you can optimize your routine for better outcomes.

Tips to Cleaning Up Your Routine:

Assess Your Current Products: Check your products’ expiration dates and examine the condition of each product. Discard anything expired, discolored, or that has changed in texture.

Swap Out Heavy Formulas: Your skin may become drier with the cooler winter months, with your skin requiring the extra hydration from a heavier moisturizer. With warmer weather approaching, switch out heavy creams and oils for lighter textures that won’t clog pores or feel greasy on the skin. Opt for a more lightweight moisturizer that provides hydration without feeling heavy. 

Rotate Products Strategically: If you have multiple products targeting the same issue (ex.multiple serums for anti-aging), consider rotating them to prevent overwhelming your skin orcausing irritation. 

Identify Your Skin’s Current Needs and Whether You are Seeing Desired Results: Have you been using the same cleanser or serums for years just because, without truly looking into their ingredients and whether they are right for your skin type? Everyone’s skin is different so you want to be sure that each product is a match for you.
