How to Transition Your Skincare Routine From Winter to Spring

Now that the months of slush, snow, and frigid temperatures are over, and spring is in the air, it’s time to rethink your skincare routine. Winter is gone, taking with it dreariness and itchy, dry skin. And although you’ve spent these months layering balms, serums, and oils, the warmer air, and increased humidity will mean your skin will encounter a shock. So, what should you do now? Here are some helpful hints to help you transition your skincare routine from winter to spring.

Moisturize for Warmer Temperatures

Now that it’s spring, you should choose lighter moisturizers like a water-based or hyaluronic acid formula as the temperatures rise. During the colder months, our skin tends to hold moisture with less need for protection. Although a moisturizer with an SPF 30 is excellent when it’s cold, we stress the importance of a sunscreen separate from your makeup, and lotion that’s at least SPF 50.


Contrary to popular belief, your skin requires exfoliation when it’s extra-dry. Sloughing off dead skin cells and unclogging pores is paramount for healthy, glowing skin. Unfortunately, many try to do this at home with harsh scrubs and over-the-counter peels. But spring is the best time to schedule a medspa treatment. Here are the remedies we recommend this time of year.


This aesthetic treatment can resolve cosmetic skin issues with an added collagen boost. A gentle stream of particles will exfoliate damaged and dry skin to reveal a glowing, fresh skin layer almost immediately.  Microdermabrasion gently vacuums away exfoliated cells and skin particles in sensitive areas, including the face, neck, chest, and arms.
