So, it's a new season, a new start, and time to spring clean your skincare and beauty arsenal to prepare for spring-ready, fresh skin. Check out our list of spring skincare tips that you can do to Flourish into a New Season with the Perfect Spring Skincare Routine.
Your Skincare Regime Should Change Along with the Seasons
Wait, not so fast; yes, we have "Spring Fever," but just because the temps are on the rise does not mean it’s time to get neglectful with your skincare routine.
Time to Spring Clean Your Beauty and Skincare Products AND Throw Out Your Expired Ones
Just like you may get rid of old clothes from winter and clear out the fridge and pantry of old food, your skincare and beauty products have expiration dates. Items with liquid textures like foundations, serums, and moisturizers usually have a shelf life of about 12 months.
However, other products, like lipstick, mascara, eyeshadow pallets, and eye liners, must be replaced every three to six months. Skin and beauty products go bad as time goes by.
This means that the ingredients in your products can separate from each other and wreak havoc on your skin by causing irritation, acne, and possible skin infections.
Um, Ewww, and no thanks.
Despite everything, it has not been that long, or maybe it has, or you can't remember when you got the product(s), anything that looks odd in color, has an abnormal smell and gooey texture, means it is time to throw it in the trash.
You would not keep curdled, rotted milk or wilted veggies in your fridge, right? So, use the same approach with your beauty and skincare products when spring cleaning your beauty and skincare arsenal.
Go for a More Natural Look and Wear Less Makeup
Just like spring skincare products must do a lot with our skin's health and vitality, so does your makeup. Make sure to choose the right beauty and makeup products just like you would your skincare ones.
Wearing way too much makeup during the warmer temps of Spring can leave your pores clogged and make your pretty little face break out, especially when the humidity hits.
Try a more natural look this Spring by letting your skin breathe, wearing less makeup, and trying to swap out your heavy liquid foundation from winter for a lighter and more airy face powder or bb cream.
Light, face powders and bb creams have fewer ingredients and will be less irritating for your skin. Also, investigate makeup products that are free from parabens and made from minerals.
And as you already know, always wash the day's germs and products off your face before bed with your spring nighttime skincare routine.
Don't Forget to Clean Your Makeup Brushes.
Take a moment to think about how often you use your makeup brushes. And when you are not using them, they are sitting there exposed to air particles that may carry germs and bacteria.
You dip your makeup brushes in liquids and powder, then you brush and rub them against your skin. Germ buildup on the brushes from storing them can clog your pores and make you more susceptible to blemishes. Fortunately, cleaning your makeup brushes is not rocket science. All you have to do is use a drop of makeup brush cleaner or soap in the palms of your hands and work the solution through the brushes’ bristles. When you are done, rinse them; make sure to squeeze out the excess water and pat dry with a clean towel.
However, it is wiser to replace your brushes with new ones every few months.
Here are a Few Skincare Tips to Switch Over Your Winter Routine to a Fresh Spring One
Refresh Your Skincare Routine
Winter is in the books. And there is no time like the present to "spring clean," your skincare regime. With our never-ending search for skin perfection, we all fall victim to each new product that promises you everything under the sun to get flawless skin. Consequently, your bathroom becomes jam-packed with unwanted products collected, which may also be toxic and spells out bad news for our skin. If you are not using it, throw it away.
Try learning what the word "natural" and “all-natural ingredients” means when it comes to your beauty and skincare products. The industry likes to sell to us but often does not disclose the whole truth about what is inside of their products. Become an ingredient and label detective, check everything, and make sure none of your existing products contain phthalates or parabens.
This is the first step to enhancing your complexion by dumping the hazardous stuff. Show your skin the love it deserves by having the best natural skincare routine possible. Keep skin safe by using products with all-natural ingredients and that are organic and vegan.
When you finish a current skincare product, switch it out for a more natural substitute. Multi-task your spring skincare products, meaning try using one product for more than just one application.
For example, try using jojoba oil. It is an excellent all-natural ingredient that can be used to hydrate your face and your body. Jojoba oil skin benefits are tremendous.
Time to Switch up Your Cleanser.
Foaming or gel cleansers are not the right fit for winter; however, they are the perfect match for your skin when spring is in full swing.
When a warm spring day comes to a close, you want to say goodbye to the day's grime, dirt, and all the pollutants that made themselves at home on your face with a deep cleaning. Look for a cleanser that has a gentle exfoliant property to it to make sure that all that day's doom and gloom and skin build-up are stripped away from your pores.
The wrong cleanser can leave you with dehydrated skin. Nonie's of Beverly Hills has the perfect cleanser to help protect your skin from pollution. Our AHA Cleanser is gentle yet effective in getting the job done. The best part, our products are created with all-natural ingredients that your skin will drink up immediately, removing dirt, oil, and other impurities.
Time to Take out Your Toner.
Most often, we forget to use a toner in our skincare routine. It comes after cleaning and before using your moisturizer. A good toner is essential to use since it helps rebalance your skin. Most think it may be deemed unnecessary to use; however, toners have ingredients crucial for healthy skin, such as antioxidants, acids, glycerin, and anti-inflammatories.
Incorporating a toner into your spring skincare routine also adds ultra-hydration, allowing your skin to absorb necessary nutrients and allow your skin to get the total benefits of your serums and moisturizers used after.
Make sure to select one that is suited for your skin type. If you are looking for the best toner for face and skincare, check out our website.
At Nonie of Beverly Hills, we have a fantastic AHA Skin Tonic that will refresh and tighten your pores while leaving your skin with a smooth and polished texture.
Our tonic contains Alpha Hydroxy Acids that derive naturally from fruits.
Springtime is the Best Time to be Using an Exfoliant if You Are Not Already Using One.
When spring’s temps are warming up, our skin will be exposed more, instead of being covered by a super warm and cozy sweater or scarf from winter.
It's time to rub away dry and dead skin cells away. Using an exfoliant is a great way to make your dry skin smoother and softer in texture. If you use an exfoliant 2-3 days a week, you help keep pores unclogged, improve or decrease your chances of getting blemishes, get rid of ingrown hairs, and even lighten and brighten your skin tone.
Make sure NOT to go overboard with exfoliants; if so, it can have the opposite effect and lead to redness, skin irritation, and inflammation, which can all lead to premature aging. Yikes, no one wants that.
Masks formulated with glycolic acid, lactic acid, or fruit enzymes bust through dulling dead skin cells sitting atop your skin, leaving you with brighter, clearer skin.
Stay clear of apricot seeds and microbeads; these will only aggravate your skin more. Make sure to use only an exfoliant with mild enzymes, like Alpha Hydroxy Acids, papain from papayas, BHAs, (beta hydroxy acid) glycolic, lactic or mandelic acids that have higher pH levels that lessen irritation, redness, and inflammation.
At Nonie of Beverly Hills, we produce and sell an array of alpha hydroxy acid products that can help with this. Our AHA ingredient-based products will work on the multiple layers of your skin, sweeping it clean.
AHAs are water-soluble and not oil-soluble, meaning it only works on your skin's TOP layer. Exfoliants containing AHAs can be very efficient and correcting and treating hyperpigmentation. Still, at the same time, it may also irritate your skin, leaving you susceptible to the sun's harmful UV rays. So, make sure to get some sunscreen at Nonie of Beverly Hills. Make certain the SPF is 15+ or greater and applied every 2 hours.
Look for a Lightweight Spring Serum.
Some more outdoor times this spring may bring you to rooftop dinners or brunch al fresco style. Look for a light serum that will fight the signs of premature aging, lighten and brighten your skin and shrink the size of your pores, all while giving your skin the much hydration it needs to stay radiant and healthy during the warmer temps, of spring.
Out with the Old Heavy Moisturizers and Welcome Sheer and Lightweight Ones.
You may be thinking that moisturizer is out of season? SO not true!
Spring weather means humidity and rain so using the thick, heavy moisturizer that you used during winter can leave your skin slick and greasy looking.
In the warmer temps of spring, your skin's hydration is paramount. The heavy lotions are now a thing of the past, and an ultra-lightweight moisturizer is the way to go to keep skin healthy and hydrated.
Geez, if only your spring cleaning and changing up to your new spring wardrobes was only this simple.
No, it is NOT Summer Yet, Your SPF Still DOES Matter.
As you move outdoors as many times as you can under those sun kissed rays, it is essential to make sure you don't skip out on your SPF.
Make sure you end your spring morning routine with a broad-spectrum SPF 15+ and reapply every two hours.
Here at Nonie, our AHA 15 SPF Sunblock Moisturizer is nourishing and not sticky like others in the market. Our sunscreen contains all-natural ingredients like Coconut Oil, Wheat Germ Oil, Orange & Lemon Oils, Coconut Emulsifier, Orchid Oil, and Organic Apple Cider Vinegar. All of these ingredients are organic, vegan, and cruelty-free.
Using sunblock protects your skin from the harmful UV rays that can cause premature aging, wrinkles, sagging, loose skin, and, worse of all, increasing your chances of getting skin cancer.
Spring Allergies are No Joke.
If you are an allergy sufferer, then you know what we are talking about. And as life is happening and happy when spring emerges, your allergies are in full swing. Along with the constant sneezing, watery eyes, and itchy throat, you're under eyes will look like something out of the last cheesy slasher film you watched this past winter.
Make sure to add an eye cream to your new spring skincare regime. Dab it lightly around your eyes in the morning and at night to decrease the puffiness that the joy, we mean joke that allergies can bring to your life.
Using an eye cream during your nighttime skincare regime will help limit the signs of premature aging and keep eye puffiness at bay.
Storing your eye cream in the fridge and applying it cold may also alleviate your under-eye bags temporarily.
AHA Eye Cream will work wonders for your eyes and is suitable for ALL skin types. The lavish, creamy texture will help banish fine lines and wrinkles, tighten and brighten your skin, and, best of all, reduce dark circles.
Make Sure to Take Care of Your Eyes and Scalp.
Besides using an eye cream, you want to make sure to take care of your actual eyes. During springtime, the sun is out much longer, and everything is looking lighter and brighter. You will be more opted to squint more due to the sun, and if we already know as much as we love the sun, it can speed up the signs of premature aging around the delicate skin under your eyes.
A giant pair of sunglasses and big hat will make you look not only fabulous but will also protect your eyes and scalp from the sun's rays.
