Hallelujah, spring is here! Just like your home demands a springtime scrub-down, your beauty routine benefits from some serious spring cleaning too. More sunshine, quality outside time, rising temps (at long last!), and pesky allergens present new challenges for your coming-out-of-hibernation skin. Let us show you the way to glowing, soft, happy skin with these five simple tips.

It’s Wise to Moisturize
Think the end of winter dryness means your moisturizer can go into retirement? Think again. No matter how much oil skin produces, a good moisturizer is vital for even, silky skin. Lather up with a gentle, moisturizing body wash like Olay Sensitive Body Wash. It’s as gentle to skin as water, and unscented, soap-free, and dye-free. You’ll emerge from the shower soft, smooth, and touchable.

Exfoliate Gently
It’s true that exfoliating is a wonderfully effective part of your beauty routine…but choose your products wisely. Abrasive ingredients meant to remove dead skin cells can be overly harsh for those with sensitive skin. Trade strong retinoids and hydroxy acids for creamy formulas with micro-beads to leave skin gorgeous and radiant without causing any irritation.

Sunscreen Is your BFF
As long as there's daylight, it’s wise to slather on that sunscreen. Powerful rays are responsible for aging your skin, skin cancer, and all kinds of skin damage. If you skimped on using SPF during the winter months, spring is the time to rectify your ways. Look for moisturizers or foundations with an SPF of at least 30. If you’re spending the day outdoors, up that number to 50.

Makeunder your Makeup
Like food, makeup comes with an expiration date—spring-clean your beauty bag. Wash your makeup brushes (you do this regularly, right?), and toss whatever’s untouched or has seen better days. Take the time to scale back your makeup to a light, fresh, springy look. Who needs heavy foundation when the birds are chirping?

Love your Lips
Your luscious lips undergo changes from winter to spring. If you're experiencing dry or chapped lips, you’re not alone.  Lip balm to the rescue! Carry a protective lip balm with super-hydrating components like beeswax, Shea butter, nut oils, and cocoa butter, and give your pout some love. Rosy color or shimmery sheen are optional, but why not? Spring has sprung!
