With spring just around the corner, it is time to shed the various layers and breakout the short sleeves and sandals. It is also important to revamp your skin care routine, to keep your face glowing and to jump into the new season with a great new spring look. Here are some tips to transition seamlessly between your winter and spring skin care routines.
The number one most important tip for getting your skin ready for spring is to wear sunscreen every day. While sitting in the sun can give you that golden bronze look that your best bronzer could only dream of, it is also incredibly damaging to your skin and can do you a lot more harm than good. Not only will sunscreen protect you from the harm UV rays of the sun, but it will also help to keep your skin hydrated, reducing your chance of wrinkles and skin damage.
Another important move to make once spring begins is to lighten your moisturizing routine. During the winter, skin becomes exposed too much harsher elements, so naturally it tends to be much drier. As spring begins, it is important to make a switch to a lighter moisturizer, so you avoid clogging your pores and causing a buildup of oil on your face.
Once your skin is ready, you can start trying out some of the fabulous new makeup trends that have been popping up for 2015. One of the most popular trends that was seen throughout fashion week was a very minimalist look. Keeping makeup simple, natural, and clean could was a big trend during Paris Fashion Week at the Anthony Vaccarello and Thierry Mugler shows and in Milan during the Alberta Ferretti show.
If the minimalist look is not for you, the trend of heavy eyeliner may be more your style. Several designers, including David Koma and Marchesa, all had their models completely rocking intense eye looks that were absolutely stunning. Wings out from the upper eyelids and thick water line coverage were incredibly popular trends throughout fashion week. If you are going to go for the strong eye look, keep the rest of your face makeup simple, drawing attention to the one prominent feature.
A pop of red on the lips is also a great way to shake up your makeup routine as spring begins. Dolce & Gabbanna and Zac Posen had their models showing off their beautiful red pouts. Whether you are heading for a night out or simply want to vamp up your look at the office, giving your lips a nice cherry color will certainly help.
Spring is the perfect time for transition; it is an endless supply of metaphors about shedding the past and recreating a brighter, new future. Why not kick the season of change off by switching up your skin care routine.
