At long last, it’s Spring cleaning time and it’s finally time to toss off your winter parka—and lighten up your skincare routine. Although your innate skin type doesn’t change with every season, your skincare needs actually do. Read on for our top spring beauty tips on adapting your skincare products accordingly.
Switch to a more delicate cleanser.
In harsh winter, you likely want all your skincare products to be as indulgently rich and heavy as possible, from your moisturizer to your facials to your cleanser. But for spring beauty, you can lighten up—starting with the texture of your facewash—and still keep your skin super-soft and supple. L’Oréal Paris Fine Flowers Cleansing Gel is a gel-cream that morphs into an airy foam when mixed with water, washing off dirt, oil and makeup without leaving your face feeling parched. Plus, it features soothing rose and jasmine extracts as key skincare ingredients—and what could be more fitting than florals for spring? If your face tends to be dry and sensitive, you can also opt for L’Oréal Paris Fine Flowers Cleansing Milk, a creamy version that’s extra-nourishing.
Incorporate a DIY face mask.
As the cleaning session goes and the temperature gets hotter, you might find that your skin naturally ramps up its oil production. If you’re prone to breakouts during the transitional season, you don’t have to splurge on spa facials to keep your skin looking spotless—just add an at-home purifying face mask to your spring beauty routine two or three times a week. Made with three mineral clays and yuzu lemon extract, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Mask Clarifying & Smoothing will help draw impurities out of your pores and keep imperfections at bay.
Add lightweight hydration.
In fashion and beauty alike, transitional seasons call for savvy layering. Think of serums as the skincare equivalent of the underpinnings you put on first—they feel floaty but make all the difference. For lightweight hydration that’s perfect for your spring beauty routine, apply a fast-absorbing serum like L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power LZR 1.5% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum before your daily moisturizer. It has a high concentration of hyaluronic acid, one of the most popular hydrating ingredients in skincare products due to its ability to hold 1,000 times its weight in water.
Save your skin from the sun, at ANY moment.
Using sunscreen isn’t just a spring beauty tip; it’s a perennial skincare must-have, since you’re exposed to UV rays year-round, rain or shine (or winter storm). The easiest way to integrate it your routine? Get it in a skincare product you’re already happy to use every day, so you won’t accidentally forget. L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power LZR SPF 30 Day Lotion reduces the look of wrinkles, firms and brightens skin that also features brightening and anti-aging ingredients (glycolic acid, vitamin C and Pro-Retinol), making it your new holy grail skincare hero.
