Skin Care Routine: Spring
How Spring Affects Your Skin
Spring is a time for change and regrowth, and because of this, many view the season as one full of possibilities. While it is true that spring is a promising time of year, it does come with a few pitfalls. One such pitfall is unfavorable skin changes. Due to the increase in temperature, humidity and sun exposure, common skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, and acne become aggravated. If you live with any of these conditions, you may notice or even come to dread flare-ups during the transition from winter to summer. If this is the case, it may be time to rethink your spring skin care routine. The spring skin care professionals at California Pure Naturals have put together a regime that utilizes our best products. By following a strict routine, you can keep your skin radiant regardless of how temperamental Mother Nature decides to be in the coming months.
Natural Skin Care During the Spring
During the winter, you may use products designed to stave off dryness caused by harsh winds, dry air, and heated homes. These products are likely thicker and have more oils to keep your complexion balanced and dewy. While these products are ideal for winter skin, they can cause your skin to produce excess oils as the temperatures warm up and as humidity levels rise. You can prevent this from happening, as well as stave off symptoms of common spring skin conditions, by easing into your spring skin care routine at the end of winter. You can keep your skin healthy and glowing by maintaining a skin care regime that looks more or less like the one below.
Cleanse: Just like Mother Nature uses spring as a time for regrowth, so too does your body. Use our Revitalizing Cleansing Gel to promote collagen production for a bright and renewed complexion. A gentle cleanser can help scrub away dead skin cells without excess foaming, which tends to dry out the skin. If your skin is not overly dry after the winter months, consider sticking with our Gentle Cleansing Lotion, which will moisturize and balance out your skin while cleansing at the same time.
Tone: One you've patted your face dry, apply our Clarifying Toner. The toner will calm your skin and close any pores opened during the cleansing process. It will also sooth any redness caused by eczema, psoriasis or rosacea and give your face a natural glow.
Hydrate: Though there is more humidity in the air, your skin is still prone to dryness during the spring. Use our Oil-Free Hydrator with natural ingredients like evening primrose oil and jojoba oil to keep the skin from becoming taut. Layer that with our Nourishing Cream, which will leave your skin feeling soft to the touch.
Protect: Though it may be nice to feel the sun's rays on your face after a long winter, don't leave your skin unprotected. Our Radiance CC Cream SPF protects the skin from harmful UV rays while instantly blurring imperfections.
Cleanse: Just as you do first thing when you wake up in the morning, use our Revitalizing Cleansing Gel or Gentle Cleansing Lotion to scrub away the impurities that may have collected on your skin throughout the day. Use our Dual Action Scrub once or twice a week to scrub away dry skin particles and to reveal the new skin beneath the rough outer layers.
Tone: Close your pores once more with the help of our toner. Again, this will help calm your skin after a thorough cleansing.
Hydrate: Skin cells regenerate as you sleep, so be sure your skin is plenty nourished before hitting the sheets. Apply our nourishing cream to help set the foundation for a healthy morning glow.
