Spring time may be easily recognizable due to the warm weather, blooming buds and abundance of pastels, but for some, the season is marred by runny noses, watery eyes and dry skin. With the change in weather comes a number of unwanted beauty issues.
But if you're one of those plagued by pollen, don't fret: There are a number of skin care tips ideal for those with sensitive skin during this seasonal change.
Sunscreen products are key
The sun is back, and while basking in its warm rays may be at the top of your weekend leisure list, it's important to keep your skin protected during this time. Be sure to bring along your Intaglio Protective Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30, which is the perfect option for people with acne-prone skin, as it does not contain glycolic acid.
Pick your makeup with care
When picking new products for this season, it's important to test products against your skin to ensure you will not react to its ingredients. While checking new beauty products is recommended no matter what time of the year it is, it's especially beneficial during this time, as your skin may be extra vulnerable.
Additionally, when you're replacing your makeup products within the next few weeks, be sure to pick those that are less likely to irritate your face. Glamour Magazine recommended that people who suffer from allergies should opt for waterproof mascara, as watery eyes may ruin your look.
Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate
Snow wasn't the only thing to accumulate over the winter months. Part of the reason your skin may appear dull this season could be because your skin is trapped under layers of dead cells. Vogue Magazine explained that people should use a gentle exfoliator to restore moisture to their faces. The Elemis Gentle Rose Exfoliator, for example, is perfect for sensitive skin, as it leaves the area smooth without introducing harmful chemicals.
Don't forget to moisturize
Whether your skin is dry, oily or a combination of both, moisturizing is essential for keeping your face fresh and clean this season. Spring weather may cause a number of irritants to float around, including pollen, dust and dirt. Additionally, the sun may cause your skin to dry out, stripping the surface of key nutrients vital to replenishment. Be sure to not only cleanse the area thoroughly, but moisturize frequently to keep it healthy.
