Reboot, Revive and Refresh Your Skin Care Routine

Reboot, Revive and Refresh Your Skin Care Routine

Tis the season – the season of cleaning, refreshing and changing up your routine. Skin care is no different than any other part of your routine. Every once in a while, it’s good to shake things up and take on a fresh new approach. Here are some simple ways to do just that.

Rethink your cleanser. Gone are the days where you have to use a harsh, stripping cleanser that leaves your skin feeling rough and flaky. Micellar waters are in and they will totally take over your routine. These gentle cleansers remove makeup, oil, dirt and debris with one simple swipe. One of our favorites is La Roche-Posay Micellar Water because it is extremely gentle and safe for even the most sensitive skin.

Power up. If you’ve been thinking about taking the plunge and adding a skin care tool to your routine, spring is the perfect time to do it. A cleansing device such as the Clarisonic Mia1 Sonic Skin Cleansing System or the Clarisonic Mia2 Sonic Skin Cleansing System will amp up your routine and help refresh your skin. Bonus – they come in plenty of cute springtime colors like pink, lavender and turquoise!

Embrace toners. You may feel inclined to skip toner when it comes to your skin care routine but that’s probably just because you don’t realize how much it can do for your complexion. LovelySkin LUXE Toner Mist 3% Amino Fruit Acid helps exfoliate the complexion to give it a refreshed and radiant appearance. The formula also contains vitamin C which supports collagen production to help minimize signs of aging. Plus, you can also use this toner to set your mineral makeup and to refresh your skin throughout the day.

Start masking a little differently. We all know why we need masks - they offer a boost of incredible ingredients, they nourish the complexion and they target specific skin concerns. Switch up the way you use masks by using them to spot treat troublesome areas. Feel a pimple starting to form? Treat it with LovelySkin Pumpkin Clarifying Mask to remove impurities and absorb excess oil. Have a consistent dry patch between your brows? Use Dr. Hauschka Hydrating Mask to quench skin.

Swap out your foundation. Heavier, fuller coverage foundations are perfect for winter but once spring rolls around, you’re probably ready for something a bit lighter. The new Obagi Sun Shield Tint Broad Spectrum SPF 50 works as your sunscreen, primer and foundation for an incredibly simple morning routine. Plus, unlike most sunscreens which only defend against UVA and UVB damage, this formula uses IR technology to protect against infrared damage.

We’re not just going to tell you to refresh your skin care routine, we’re actually going to give you the chance to do it. You can win a full-size La Roche-Posay Micellar Water by entering our giveaway. All you have to do is comment on this blog and tell us how you are going to refresh your skin care routine this spring. We’ll announce five lucky winners on the blog on March 30.

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the winners - Carolyn H., Elizabeth C., Brittney H., Dorothy M. and Sandra E. Winners will be contacted by email.

I just recently read about using micellar water as part of a two-step cleansing system, so I''m intrigued. Plagued by skin issues most of my life, I love the feeling of a clean (not stripped) face, and I''m so over trying to cover things up, especially during the summer months.

I am 45 and love the sun! I never wear sunscreen and want to start incorporating that into my daily routine. I also want to increase my daily water intake.

I would love to transition from my traditional foundation to a lighter weight tinted sunscreen/moisturizer. Definitely make sure my nutrition is in check too so I can wear a light coverage makeup with minimal imperfections to mask!

I would like to refresh my routine by adding a mask. I haven''t used one in while because I have all my necessary exfoliating products however, I think a treatment mask would be just perfect to give my skin a fresh glow! Thanks for the suggestions.

I will be switching from oils to keep me moisturized to light weight creams and use a serum with Vit C and Hyaluronic acid and would love to try the Obagi tinted sunscreen for my walks in the sun

I am going to refresh my skincare routine by buying a Clarisonic Mia which I know will help revitalize my skin! I''m also going to start using a toner, and start using an Vitamin C serum as well!
