4 ways to get your skin ready for spring

Are you ready to spring clean your skincare?  After months of dark, cold, miserable days, brighter days are here and it’s time to get your skin ready for spring.  You might have worked hard on your skincare routine over the winter, but with a new season comes new skincare concerns and it’s important to set new goals and ensure you’re using the right products for your skin’s needs.  Here are 4 ways to get your skin ready for spring.

Wear SPF

As the days are getting longer and hopefully sunnier, it’s imperative that you wear SPF every day.  We always advocate wearing SPF 365 days a year, but if you haven’t done that over the winter, now is the time to start.  Get your skin ready for spring by using Yon-Ka SPF50.  It gives broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection and is enriched with Vitamins E and B5 and two tea polyphenols to prevent aging of the skin and sun-related pigmentation.  Don’t forget to apply it to your ears, neck and the back of your hands too!

Use masks regularly

The Yon-Ka Glyconight 10% Masque is a great addition to any skincare routine, and will get your skin ready for spring effectively.  It refines skin texture, accelerates cell renewal and smooths out wrinkles by exfoliating the skin.  It can be used in a few different ways: as a radiance mask at night for a radiance boost the following morning, as a flash treatment by using it every second night for a week, or as an intensive treatment by using it every second night for a week, and then every night for the rest of the month.  With 10% glycolic acid, you can safely perform a peel at home and tackle anti-aging while giving your skin radiance and a new skin appearance.  It is absolutely vital to use SPF whenever you’re using glycolic acid in your skincare routine.

Focus on hydration

Chances are that during the winter, you used a richer, heavier moisturiser.  Now that spring is here, you can switch to a lighter one.  A lightweight moisturiser like Yon-Ka Hydra No1 Fluid will still hydrate the skin effectively with ingredients like hyaluronic acid, but won’t clog your pores.  Just because it’s got a lighter texture doesn’t mean less hydration.  This moisturiser delivers lasting hydration to the skin.

Exfoliate weekly

Hands up if your skin is feeling the effects of a long, cold winter!  Your skin might be looking dull or feeling rough right now, but don’t worry, weekly exfoliation will help and will get it ready for spring.  Using a gentle scrub like Yon-Ka Guarana Scrub will help to remove dead skin cells from the skin’s surface, revealing newer, healthier cells underneath.  It will also help to boost the skin’s circulation and stimulate production of new cells too.
