Spring clean your skincare routine April 2023 at Oleander Aesthetics
We are happy to see winter on its way out, but see that it can leave behind a dull, dry complexion. With a forecast of brighter days ahead, it’s time to make over your skin care regimen! Let's spring clean your skincare routine!
Spring clean your make up and skin care products. Get rid of old products. Anything that has been hanging around for a year or more should be tossed – even if you plan to replace it with the same thing. Rid yourself of the things that you don’t really use and concentrate on the products that you like and are beneficial to your skin.
Here are a few great tips to help you transition smoothly into Spring.
Clean your makeup brushes
When going from one season to another is very important to clean your cosmetic products. Makeup brushes and sponges can build up a great amount of bacteria, germs and dirt. Gently wash your brushes with natural cleanser (Emma's favorite: FACE REALITY ULTRA GENTLE CLEANSER) and lay them flat to dry for 24 hours. Make sure to check the expiration date of your makeup.
Exfoliate, add serum and moisturize
These 3 steps are fundamental all year round for your skincare routine, although the application instructions vary according to the season, you can´t skip any of them. Exfoliate your skin to get rid of dead skin cells, oil and dirt that might have kept into the skin during winter. Add a serum under your moisturizer to help the repair, brighten and nourish. Moisturize your skin, but you need to switch your thick and heavy moisturizer used in winter to a lighter one; choose a lighter moisturizer (Emma's favorite: VITALC HYDRATING WATER BURST) to keep your skin healthy and hydrated without weighing it down.
Increase your SPF
Spring in KC means higher UV indexes and typically more time spent outdoors. While you should have been wearing a SPF in the winter months, it’s even more important to protect your skin as we head into the summer. Make sure to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen (Emma's favorite: PREVENTION + MATTE SPF 30) and reapply every 2 hours.
Switch up your treatments at Oleander Aesthetics
The season for advanced treatments such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion slow down in April. Spring is the perfect time to treat yourself to a custom facial to help to get rid of dead winter skin cells and product build up. A Hydraflow treatment is like getting a power wash and includes an oxygen treatment. It leaves your skin fresh, ultra clean and glowing for spring!

See you soon,
