2020 Spring Clean Skincare Guide For All Skin Types


Clean Skincare

Spring has finally sprung! Warmer weather, the sun is shining down on the green grass, longer days, and the unfortunate allergies.


Allergy season is in full effect and can sometimes mimic other viruses and illnesses.

Interesting, right?


Some symptoms include:


  • itchy/watery eyes

  • runny nose

  • stuffy nose

  • sneezing

  • shortness of breath

  • chest tightness

  • rash

  • hives

  • dermatitis

  • acne


When your allergies start to affect your skin, it can be challenging to find the right products that don't irritate the skin.


It is important to change your skincare products in the spring to adjust to environmental issues and skin changes. During the spring season, clean skincare products are beneficial because of non-toxic ingredients.



SPRING SKINCARE TRENDS


As the seasons go by and new information is released, new products come out that include different ingredients that benefit the skin. There are a few products that have been circulating the internet that has wonderful benefits for your skin as well as being clean.

Niacinamide
Hyaluronic Acid
Retinol

NIACINAMIDE

Niacinamide is vitamin B3 that helps diminish fine lines and wrinkles, reduce oiliness and blemishes.

HYALURONIC ACID

Hyaluronic Acid is a safe and mild chemical acid that helps maintain and add hydration to your skin.

RETINOL

Retinol is a Vitamin A that helps treat acne, helps with anti-aging, and improve collagen production.

Below is the 2020 Spring Clean Skincare Guide For All Skin Types!


MORNING & EVENING SKINCARE ROUTINE



Skincare Products

MORNING ROUTINE


The morning routine is when you're going to prep your skin for the day. This would include:


  1. Cleanser (option: I put this as an optional because cleansing your skin in the morning might be overly stripping your skin especially if you're not an oily skin type; elaborate)

  2. Toner

  3. Moisturizer

  4. SPF (for sun exposure)


EVENING ROUTINE


The evening routine is imperative especially during the spring season. In the evening, you're going to treat your skin and add nourishing ingredients that help with cell renewal. This would include:


  1. Pre-cleanse

  2. Cleanser

  3. Toner

  4. Essence (optional)

  5. Serum

  6. Eye Cream (optional)

  7. Moisturizer


SPRING CLEAN SKINCARE STEPS


PRE-CLEANSE

Precleaning is a great first step to remove oil and makeup (if necessary) off of your face BEFORE applying cleanser. The pre-cleanse helps break the makeup down before applying a cleanser of your choice.

CLEANSER

Cleanser, in my opinion, is the most important step in your skincare regimen. Cleanser breaks down the oil, the excess sebum, sweat, environmental factors, and whatever else you can think of to create a canvas for smooth skin and for other products to help penetrate better.

TONER

Toner is not necessary but can play a vital step in your skincare regimen depending on your skin type and the products you're using afterward. Toner is not necessary because nowadays, other products that you're using on your skin are formulated with a balancing ph. However, if your skin is not balanced, it can cause dry skin, sensitivity, irritation, and blemishes and you definitely don't want that in the spring.

SERUM

Serum is also an important step especially after toner because serums help heal the skin. Finding the right serum for your skin type and skin issues is very important especially if you're trying to achieve optimal skin for your liking. Serums can help with diminishing fine lines and wrinkles, providing moisture, fading dark spots, and clearing the skin from blemishes or other issues.

MASK (1/2X A WEEK)

A good face mask can really improve your skin. Hydrating and soothing sheet masks are rich in vitamins and nutrients that help the skin heal, especially during the spring season.

MOISTURIZER

Moisturizer is a very important step because it helps lock in everything. Without moisturizer locking all those nutrients in, all that effort you put in to achieve a skin care regimen would work against you. It is important to find a moisturizer that works for your skin type and that won't clog your pores.

EYE CREAM

Finding an eye cream that is effective can be a daunting task but once you find one, you'll be hooked! When looking for an eye cream, try to find something with hyaluronic acid or caffeine. Hyaluronic acid improves skin texture and smoothness. If you're against eye cream, you can always use a moisturizer especially the kind with ceramides and hyaluronic acid.
