With the amazing weather we’ve been having it’s important to adjust your skin care routine to keep your skin healthy and protected. When it’s sunny and hot we recommend focusing on using a good cleanser followed by a protective antioxidant, and finishing up with moisturizer and sunscreen.

Your spring skin regime starts with keeping your skin clean. ZO has some really nice cleansers and we can recommend the best match for your skin type. Once your skin’s clean protect it with C-Bright by ZO or Code 4 by Celazome, just ask us which one is best for you.  Follow that with your favourite moisturizer and then use Colorescience Sunforgettable Mineral Sunscreen to protect your skin.  Check out our skin store to find out more about these lines!

Antioxidant-rich products are great for year-round use as antioxidants help neutralize free radicals, those little scavenger molecules that destroy healthy cells. And since sun exposure stimulates the formation of free radicals you’ll want to be extra diligent about using quality products packed with antioxidants such as Vitamin C during the spring and summer.

Exfoliation is also an important part of a regular skin care routine as it removes dead skin cells and prevents pores from clogging which decreases instances of black heads and acne and stimulates collagen production so your skin glows. But you have to be careful not to exfoliate too much when it’s hot, especially if you’ll be out in the sun, as it leaves your skin more vulnerable to burns.  Talk with us to find out the right exfoliation treatments for your skin and the how often you should exfoliate during the warm, sunny weather.

You’ve probably heard us rave about Colorescience Sunforgettable Loose Mineral Sunscreen before and here’s why we keep recommending it. Not only does it protect your skin with Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide but it’s so easy to use. We all know how important it is to use sunscreen but if a product is hard to apply or messy or inconvenient we just won’t use it as much. But Colorescience is easy to apply, you can dust it on anytime and anywhere, and you can toss it into your purse, your diaper bag, or your golf bag. It takes just a few seconds and because it’s a powder you don’t get sticky hands or lotion on your clothes. Can you tell how much we love it? And don’t forget to reapply it every two hours!

Here’s to fabulous spring skin!
