5 Tips for aMAYzing skin this spring

Ah, the good old spring we've all been waiting for! The sun is out and flowers are blooming. It is also the time of rebirth, rejuvenation, and regrowth. Why not take advantage of the season and give your skincare routine a makeover today! Here are five things you can do to help your skin this spring.

1. Give your shelf a spring clean

We often think that spring cleaning revolves around tidying up the house along with our wardrobe and calling it a day. But what about our skincare products? You know, like that forgotten cleanser that has been in your shelf for the past two years. All those half-empty products out here collecting dust need to go! If a product is used way past its due date, it may cause skin irritation.

2. Step up the SPF

Now that bitter winter is out of the way (can I get a hooray?), spring is coming up. This means the sun is stepping into the game. As much as a little sunshine never hurts anybody, be conscious of UV rays. Too much exposure to the sun without the proper protection may damage your skin. Make sure you are prepared by having the right UV barrier for your epidermis.

3. Lighten up

Now that the cold season is gone, feel free to go easy on the products. Spring means a lighter vibe in general. Forget the heavy creams and products. It is better to choose a lighter moisturizer and Micellar water in order to keep your skin healthy without weighing it down.

4. Clean up your brushes

Once again, we forget that our environment can greatly affect our skin. There is nothing wrong with makeup since it is somewhat linked to skincare. You know what they say, good skin means good foundation! However, all the gunk and build-up on your brushes has got to go! Gently wash your makeup tools with a natural cleanser then lay them flat dry for 24 hours.

5. Get a fresh start

Try something new! It could be a cleanser, a face mask or a toner, there are so many products out here ready to help your skin. Since spring is about renewal, why not switch up your skincare routine? Find new products that fit your type and concerns. Feel free to do so by consulting the Love Aiki ''What's my skin type?'' in order to get to know your skin and find products accordingly.

Do not be fooled! Everyone needs sunscreen regardless of their skin tone. Though it is believed by many that melanin (the pigment that makes the skin darker) is a natural protectant against UV rays, it only protects the skin barrier up to SPF 13. This is obviously not as strong as the recommended sunscreen which is SPF 30. Long story short, pat on the sunscreen dark friends!
