Dull, grey, thickened, or reddened by wind and cold. During the winter the skin has become more sensitive and dull, it has lost freshness and radiance.
How can you awaken your skin in spring and restore its healthy appearance and fresh complexion, ready to be caressed by the sun? And above all: what is the ideal face cream for spring?
What your skin needs in spring
To renew! After the greys of winter, the watchword for facial treatments in spring is: deep cleansing. Open pores and free of impurities allow better oxygenation, which stimulates cell renewal and gives a regenerating whiplash to asphyxiated skin.
The first ally of the skin in spring is the scrub, to be done once or twice a week: even before the right face cream in spring, remember to start with this simple gesture, which will take you a few minutes but must be done with care and constancy... So no more laziness!
If your skin is not too delicate, you can use an exfoliation with an acid treatment for an even more effective action. Exfoliated skin breathes and is more receptive to the products we are going to apply afterwards. In addition, acids, such as glycolic acid, stimulate cell renewal - the so-called turn-over - restoring a face that is bright and velvety to the touch, ready to be nourished by a good face cream for spring.
But be careful! If you have clear and very sensitive skin, or at least notice that after the winter it is reddened, irritated, forget scrubs and acid solutions, which would be too extreme: turn to facial treatments for spring based on desensitizing products, soothing and moisturizing masks, to be repeated until the skin has lost that unpleasant redness indicator of hypersensitivity.
Tip: Preferably avoid over-scented products. The mix of alcohol and essences that make up the fragrance could be aggressive at this stage on very delicate skin.
