1. Exfoliate Skin
Winter skin can be dry, flaky and dull. It’s no surprise you want to shed that old skin before you head into spring and summer now that you’ll most likely be showing more skin. The best way to slough off old and dull skin is exfoliation. Exfoliating your face removes dead surface skin cells and reveals a fresher layer of skin. This allows your skin to absorb skin care products more effectively. Use a face exfoliator that’s gentle and that you can use on a regular basis. Garnier Clearly Brighter Argan Nut Gentle Cleanser is formulated with antioxidants such as like Vitamin C and multi—fruit acid. It removes dead skin cells from the surface and polishes your skin complexion.
2. Step Up Your SPF
With more sunlight and warmer temperatures also comes more time spent outside and higher sun exposure. You should always wear at least SPF 15 sunscreen or moisturizer but you may want to up your sun protection come spring and summer time. Garnier SkinActive’s Clearly Brighter Anti-Sun Damage Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 is formulated with Vitamin C & E, and gentle exfoliating Lipo-Hydroxyl Acid (LHA). It’s fast absorbing and protects from new sun exposure and also reduces the appearance of other signs of sun damage.
3. Minimize the appearance of Dark Spots
Do you have stubborn blemishes such as dark spots? Antioxidants may help. Garnier SkinActive’s Clearly Brighter Overnight Leave-On Peel gently evens skin tone and minimizes the look of dark spots while you sleep. Formulated with glycolic alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA) and antioxidant Vitamin C, this skin care product when used as directed effectively evens skin tone and reduces the look of darks spots so you can wake up to fresh, more radiant-looking skin.
4. Hydrate Skin at Night
Use a face moisturizer that hydrates and also revitalizes your skin. At night we suggest Garnier’s SkinActive’s Miracle Anti-Fatigue Sleeping Cream, which has the hydrating benefits of a face mask but applies like a face cream. This refreshing formula is infused with lavender essential oil, hyaluronic and hydroxy acids, it renews, firms skin and even reduces the appearance of wrinkles. It also fights signs of fatigue on your skin. This smoothing moisturizer will help you wake up with a fresh, youthful-looking face.
5. Lighten up your Makeup Routine with a BB cream
An easy way to get coverage and SPF protection is BB cream. A BB cream has so many skin benefits and it is so easy to fall in love with this skin care product. They can be formulated with antioxidants and other skin-perfecting ingredients. BB creams can renew, brighten, hydrate, protect and even out skin tone all-in-one. It can be used on its own or as the base underneath foundation for a perfect skin complexion. Garnier’s 5-in-1 Miracle Skin Perfector BB cream will give you a glowing complexion perfect for spring.
This may not pertain to skin care products or ingredients, but regular exercise is great for your health and skin. Exercise encourages blood flow and circulation to your face which can help flush out toxins. Exercise also acts like a mini-facial for your face because when you sweat your pores open and expel dirt and oil. After a great sweat session make sure to cleanse your skin thoroughly because your face can be a breeding ground for blemishes at this time.
