We know establishing good skin care habits can be tough, so why not try focusing on one every month? With each new season, we’re bringing you three new beauty tips to improve your routine.
Spring is here! While warmer weather may not be here to stay quite yet, it’s time to start thinking about how you should adjust your skin care routine for this season. Follow these three spring beauty tips for healthy, radiant skin.
April: Switch to a lighter moisturizer
We all have our favorite skin care products, but our routines should really change with the seasons because each season affects skin a little differently. As the temperature rises, your skin might not need that ultra-rich moisturizer anymore. If your complexion tends to be oily in the spring and summer, consider switching your rich hydrating cream for a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer. Our spring beauty routine includes LovelySkin LUXE Mattifying Antioxidant Moisturizer because it minimizes shine, leaving skin feeling soft and matte. This moisturizer also helps diminish the signs of aging with peptides and antioxidant-rich resveratrol.
May: Treat yourself to an at-home pedicure
If you’re anything like us, winter has probably done a number on your feet. Before sandal season arrives, prep your heels and toes with an at-home pedicure. When life is hard on our feet, we turn to patchology PoshPeel Pedicure. A LovelySkin staff and customer favorite, this foot peel features a blend of alpha hydroxy acids like glycolic, salicylic, lactic and citric acids to gently smooth rough heels and tough soles. Simply pour the gel into the booties, kick your feet up for about an hour and then wait. In the next few days, you’ll start to see what everyone’s talking about!
June: Enjoy a safe sun-kissed glow with self-tanner
By June, it’s nearly time for a summer getaway! Before you pack your bags and head to the beach, give your skin a beautiful bronze glow the healthy way. Grab your favorite self-tanner a few days before you leave and you’ll arrive looking like you’re already a seaside regular. We love using Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta® Glow Pads because they exfoliate skin with alpha and beta hydroxy acids while creating a natural, streak-free tan.
When you’re out in the sun, don’t forget your healthy sun habits! Your gorgeous new tan doesn’t replace the need for a broad spectrum sunscreen like EltaMD UV Sport Water-Resistant Broad-Spectrum SPF 50. Apply and reapply sunscreen every 80 minutes, especially if you’re swimming or sweating. Kick back under an umbrella whenever possible, and always protect yourself with a hat, sunglasses and lightweight, long-sleeved clothing.
