Spring is here and we want our redhead skin to look healthy, fresh, and glowing. It is the perfect season for light makeup and having a nice base will help you look your best. Here are a few ways you can restore your skin after a long winter:
1. Exfoliate away dead, dry skin
The key to glowing, soft skin is to make sure it’s fresh and clean. The secret is to exfoliate away any dead, dry skin. Use a gentle cleanser and exfoliator to help refresh your skin and prep it for spring. Over-exfoliating is a common mistake as the weather warms up, so start slow and be gentle on your skin.
2. Tackle redness
If you struggle with redness, this transition in your skincare is a good time to tackle this problem. Make sure you’re using soothing products and look for things that help with inflammation or target redness directly.
3. Dermaplane peach fuzz
If you’re looking to get smoother skin, a great way to do so is dermaplaning. This helps to remove that light layer of peach fuzz we all have while also exfoliating the skin. Dermaplaning can be harsh on the skin, so use a nourishing oil as a lubricant. Your skin will be fresh and glowy!
4. Restore the skin barrier
There are a number of things that can cause the skin’s protective layer to be compromised; over-exfoliating, harsh chemicals, stress, allergens, and weather can all cause your facial skin barrier to be weak. As the weather warms up, it’s the perfect time to make sure it’s healthy and strong. Look for ingredients like ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and niacinamide to help restore it.
5. Add hydration
In addition to repairing the skin barrier, warmer weather means you need more moisture in your routine. Hydrate the skin through moisturizers, hydrating treatments, and of course, drink plenty of water. This will ensure your skin is soft and plump for spring-time.
6. Find the perfect SPF
You should be using SPF year-round, but if you haven’t found your perfect springtime SPF yet, it’s time to start the hunt. You should have one you can wear under makeup and one you can wear on its own. If you want something versatile, try a tinted SPF.
Rock it like a Redhead!
