3 Beauty Updates You Can Make to Ensure You are Spring-Ready

by Angela lagrimas

Old Man Winter is finally on his way out, and it's time for a little spring cleaning. Naturally, you probably have several items on your to-do list revolving around this seasonal change, ranging from organization to general cleaning. Be mindful not to forget an updated beauty regimen! Different seasons can mean different things where your skin is concerned, which makes this the perfect time to brush up on your springtime beauty dos and don'ts.

1. Embrace Sunscreen

It is an awful habit that we fall into when winter comes; sometimes, we simply forget that we should never leave the house without sunscreen. When the clouds are gray and dreary, it can be easy to forget that UV rays are always present. That said, now that spring is back upon us, it's time to be ever-present about the need for sunscreen. You'll be leaving the house more, putting your beautiful face out there for all the world to see, and the last thing you need are sun spots and wrinkles that can come from being unprotected in the sun.

We particularly love Solar Defense Booster SPF50 by Dermalogica. It's not only built to combat the harmful effects of the sun's rays, but it's formulated with antioxidants (like Vitamin C and E, as well as the Green Tea and Grape Seed extracts) . The end result is a sophisticated, non-chalky formula that does its part to battle UV damage and keep aging at bay.

2. Brush Away Dead Winter Skin Cells 

Exfoliation is an important part of a healthy skincare regimen all year round. Winter has likely been harsh on your delicate tissue, and it's time to remove those dead skin cells so new life can surface. Beyond everyday exfoliation, you should reach for a facial cleansing brush that can usher in new skin while removing makeup, dirt and oil. We like the Dermalogica or Refinee brand, which comes with a variety of brush heads and cleansing tools.

3. Redo Your Do

There's seldom a more perfect way to usher away winter than to upgrade your 'do. Chop off some locks and lighten up your look with golden highlights that embrace sunlight and create a glowy look. Check out what the celebs are doing if you need a little inspiration.

There's no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to personalizing your beauty routine. However, if you adjust for the change in seasons, your skin is likely to thank you in the long run!
