Refresh Your Spring Skin Care Routine With These Tips!

As winter gives way to warmer temperatures, your skin care routine should also shift. Transitioning out of the cold, dry weather into warmth and sunshine can be a significant change for our skin.

Spring brings more hours of sunlight and higher humidity – factors that may dramatically impact your skin health and complexion during the hotter months. Here are some notable tips our team put together to make the change from winter to spring.

Switch Skin Care Products

As we all know, winter in the Chicago area can be harsh, cold, and windy, leading us to rely on heavy moisturizers or creams. However, as the weather warms, you can use gentler products instead. Switch to lighter moisturizers and use a sunblock with an SPF of 30 or higher. Be sure to look for medical-grade products tailored to your skin type.

Stay Healthy

An easy way to avoid breakouts is to drink plenty of water and eat healthy foods. Consuming abundant portions of fruits and vegetables daily can give your skin the minerals and vitamins it needs. Committing to an exercise routine will also work wonders for your body. Remember to wash and moisturize your face after working out, especially if you like to exercise outdoors.


Once the winter climate is behind us, it’s an excellent time to slough off that tired, dull skin. Exfoliation treatments like laser skin rejuvenation, facials, Vivace microneedling, and microdermabrasion will reveal fresh, radiant skin.

Get Your Beauty Sleep

Getting sufficient rest can improve skin quality, but it’s equally critical to consider the conditions in which you sleep. Keep your bedroom cool to prevent night sweats, which may clog pores and make it more challenging to get a good night’s sleep.

Also, change your sheets and pillowcases weekly – the oils from your skin and hair leave behind traces that can cause acne breakouts.

Apply Sunscreen Liberally and Often

Once the temperature gets warmer and the days lengthen, people tend to spend more time outdoors. And with the warmer climate, we wear less clothing, exposing more skin to the sun. Make sure to apply a generous amount of sunscreen daily, and reapply every two hours. Choose a medical-grade sunscreen from our product selection page. Your skin will thank you today and for many years to come.
