Winter is finally coming to an end.
For the last few months, we have spent mornings and nights lathering on heavy lotions and cranking up the humidifier. We know you have taken (almost) every precaution possible to make sure your skin doesn’t shrivel up and dry out for the few but very dry winter months.
As the days get warmer and more humid, everyone begins to switch out their winter wardrobes, replacing their cardigans for their tank tops and pants for their dresses. While we start making those changes in our closets, it’s just as important to start making the necessary changes in our skin care routine.
When the weather begins to change, so does our skin and its needs.
7 Tips for Reviving and Readjusting your Dull, Winter Skin
After a winter of cold wind comes dry, and sometimes flaky, skin. The best way to shed off this layer is to use an exfoliator that will help lightly scrub off all the dead skin.
Use a gentle exfoliator a few times a week (depending on the product,) as a supplement to your usual face wash for a deep clean. This helps break down the dullness from clogged pores.

2. Moisturize! But switch to a lightweight one…
It doesn’t matter what season it is; everyone MUST moisturize.
With warmer and sunnier days, you don’t have to lather on heavy thick moisturizers like you were doing in the winter. We recommend switching to a lightweight, broad-spectrum formula. That means something with hyaluronic acid and a good SPF number, (at least 30)!
What We Recommend: REVISION SKINCARE Intellishade Clear with SPF 50
Now that you have a day cream, you can utilize those heavier moisturizers for your night routine. This is because your skin rejuvenates itself while you sleep, so it’s the perfect time to indulge your skin! Looking for a new night cream?

3. Start Using Face Masks
Ever wondered what the hype is surrounding makeup influencers and their face masks? It’s because certain masks can do absolute WONDERS for your skin!
Depending on your desired result, you can get a mask that helps unclog pores, moisturizes, brightens skin, and even improves tone and texture irregularities.

4. Throw Away Old Products!
When they said, “spring cleaning,” they didn’t just mean your clothes!
More often than not, we hold onto skin products and makeup far longer than we should. As products age, they start to host a buildup of bacteria and other harmful things that can cause your skin to break out.
Grab all your skincare products and throw out anything that is over 6 months old…you’ll thank us later.
5. Clean. Your. Brushes.
We know. You’re in a rush to make dinner plans and you have no choice but to use that blush brush that has been used and reused for months on end. What you may not know is that there is far more than a build-up of product in that brush! *Yikes!*
Dirty brushes can lead to clogged pores, breakouts, and even bad application of makeup. Don’t let that get in the way of your spring glow!
It’s time to start washing your brushes weekly with a brush soap or regular hand soap and letting them completely dry before use.
6. Invest in Eye Cream
We understand that adding another skin product to your routine isn’t ideal, but we promise that this is an important one.
It’s logical to assume that the skin on your face is uniform and can be treated with the same products, but that’s not the case. The skin under your eye is much thinner than that on your cheek or neck and can show signs of aging much quicker than other areas of your face. This makes it important to keep the undereye area super moisturized to prevent dryness!
When your under eyes are bright and hydrated, your entire complexion changes!

7. Book Yourself a Facial
Nothing tops off a skin care routine like a monthly facial. Facials are a great way to regenerate your skin and boost your complexion.
Facials provide a deep cleanse while increasing circulation. A trained aesthetician or dermatologist performs this treatment which involves a massage, increasing cell regeneration and collagen development, making the skin tighter and more youthful.
The best part of a facial? It’s relaxing! Along with all the other benefits, facials are a great way to sit back and blow off some steam, giving your skin a little love.
After the procedure, you’ll see smoother, brighter skin!
