Spring Clean for Summer


Every year the change in seasons motivates me to clean out my life – out with the old and in with the new! It’s important to organize and regroup with all aspects of your life, too, from closet to skin care cabinet. As we transition out of winter, just like we need a different wardrobe, we need to also tweak our skin care regimen.  We may need to look for a new routine that is lighter in formula to compliment warmer weather, different from the cooler and dryer climate we experience in winter.  I’ve compiled some advice below to help you figure out the best way to care for your skin as the season changes.

Stay covered

The days are getting longer this time of year, which means we have more time to enjoy the daylight – but this also means our skin can be exposed to the sun for longer periods of time.  It’s so important to remember to stay covered and wear sun protection – even when it’s not that sunny.  The sun’s UVA and UVB rays can penetrate the skin even when you least expect it and damage and age the skin.

“The sun is so harmful to skin.  To keep skin young and healthy, Ole recommends an SPF of 15, like truth revealed super crème, for daily use and SPF 50+, like protect the truth SPF 50+, when you are out in the sun for long periods,” Ole advised.

Staying covered will keep skin beautiful, preventing fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.

Lighter formulations

While winter brings dryer days, which can more easily dehydrate the skin, the skin might not need as much moisturization in the spring and summer months.  As a result, look for products that are less rich in formulation but still hydrate and nourish.  Great examples of light formulas are truth revealed super crème SPF 15 for day and truth crème advanced hydration for night.  You can also mix in a little all purpose aloe vera gel to cut the richness of your crèmes and make them more lightweight.  It’s important to remember, however, just because it’s humid out, the skin still needs to be moisturized, since hydration is the key to ageless skin.

Taking these key steps to reorganize your skincare routine will promote major benefits and keep your skin looking beautiful and clean in the long run!
