Congratulations for making it through winter! You now have warmer days ahead—and that means it’s time to switch up your skin care routine for the new season. Just because you want to spend all your time outdoors now that the last bit of snow has melted doesn’t mean you should skip out on taking care of your skin. Sure, you may have found yourself busier these days, but taking a few minutes out of your schedule when you wake up and before you go to bed to show your skin some attention is definitely a good idea. You can keep things basic—facial cleanser, moisturizer, and broad-spectrum sunscreen are a good place to start when it comes to skin care products.
As you well know, moisturizing is a fundamental step in any solid skin care routine and can help keep your complexion feeling hydrated and looking its best. (And as far as how to moisturize, applying yours to damp skin after cleansing can help lock in hydration.) Ready to try a new one for spring? We’ve got you covered with plenty of options! Below, find ones ranging from trendy water-based face lotions to a moisturizer formulated with broad-spectrum SPF. Go forth into the spring season with a happy complexion!
‘Tis the season to change up your skin care routine! If you’re ready to start using a different moisturizer now that the weather is going to warm up, you’re in the right place. Here are our best moisturizers for spring.
L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Cicacream Face Moisturizer Pro Retinol & Centella Asiatica: Cica cream is one of the trendiest skin care products of the moment—so go ahead and give it a try this spring! This cica cream is lightweight and formulated with Pro-Retinol, a wrinkle-fighting ingredient and centella asiatica, an herb used in traditional Chinese medicine. This cica cream strengthens and repairs skin barrier to help resist visible lines, loss of firmness, and other signs of aging that a weakened skin barrier can accentuate. Immediately, skin feels softer, smoother, more supple, and noticeably more hydrated, while wrinkles appear less visible and clarity is improved with continued use over time. Every morning and evening, smooth the cica cream over your face until thoroughly absorbed.
L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Day Moisturizer SPF 30: We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again—broad-spectrum sunscreen is an absolute skin care must. And that’s especially the case now that the temps are rising. Here’s why: When you spend prolonged periods of time in the sun without wearing protection, this can lead to visible signs of aging like dark spots and wrinkles down the road. What’s more, you could get burned! UVA rays are the ones that cause damage while UVB rays are the ones that burn—which is why you should choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen to help protect against both. And since you can get burned even on cloudy days, you should apply broad-spectrum sunscreen every day, rain or shine. (Let’s be real: Spring brings with it a whole lot of rainy days!)
While you could choose to use a separate moisturizer and sunscreen (sunscreen would go over moisturizer), you could reach for a moisturizer formulated with broad-spectrum SPF instead. This moisturizer with SPF is formulated with glycolic acid, vitamin C, and Pro-Retinol to help brighten the look of your complexion and protect against UV rays. Apply it 15 minutes before going outside—and bring it with you so that you can reapply every two hours. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends reapplying it immediately after sweating or swimming, so keep that in mind. There are other steps you should take to help protect your skin from the sun as well. Avoid the sun during peak hours (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.), wear a broad-brimmed hat and UV-blocking sunglasses, and seek shade, especially during the sun’s peak hours.
L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Oily Skin: Yes, you really do need to use moisturizer if you have oily skin, so don’t skip out! That’s because external factors like pollution, UV rays, and excessive cleansing can damage your skin’s moisture barrier, causing loss of moisture and an increase in oil production. This can leave your complexion looking overly shiny. Not what you want, right? This moisturizer is formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera water to help provide long-lasting hydration. Bonus: It has a matte finish and helps reduce the look of excess shine.
L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Dry Skin: Ready to show your dry skin a little extra love this spring? Reach for a water-based moisturizer! Dry skin can face external factors like pollution and UV rays, which can damage the skin’s moisture barrier, increasing loss of moisture and causing it to become drier. As a result, your skin surface may lose its natural glow and start to look duller. This moisturizer is formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera water to help provide long-lasting hydration. It envelops skin with moisture to help it appear more radiant.
L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Extra Dry Skin: Winter—with its low moisture levels in the air—can do a number to your complexion, leaving you feeling extra dry. Which is why you might be in need of a new moisturizer this season. In fact, your skin type has a very fragile skin moisture barrier that can be easily damaged by external factors like pollution and UV rays. Skin consequently loses its ability to retain moisture, becoming easily dehydrated, feeling tight and uncomfortable. This moisturizer is formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera water to help provide long-lasting hydration. It envelops skin with moisture to help soothe, nourish, and comfort your complexion.
L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Moisturizer: Who doesn’t want a pretty rosy glow? After all, it’s a signifier of youth! But as your skin matures, its ability to renew surface cells slows down, causing a buildup of dead skin cells on the surface. As a result, the natural pink tone becomes hidden and your complexion can become dull, losing its natural rosy tone of youth. This intense daily moisturizing cream enhanced with rosy pigments to help revive skin’s rosy tone. Plus, it’s formulated with imperial peony and LHA to help gently exfoliate dull skin. Your skin will feel hydrated immediately and look renewed with continued use over time. Smooth it gently on clean skin in circular motions in the morning.
L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Dual Overnight Moisturizer: Bright skin is one of the biggest skin care goals—and beyond wrinkles, dull uneven tone can make skin look older. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, your skin repairs itself while you sleep, so nighttime is a good time to add a brightening moisturizer to your beauty routine. This moisturizer combines an exfoliating concentrate and brightening infusion in one pump. The exfoliating concentrate is formulated with glycolic acid to help remove dead skin cells, while the brightening infusion is formulated with vitamin C and Pro-Retinol to help enhance skin clarity. Your complexion will look more radiant immediately and more even with continued use over time. Smooth it gently over cleansed skin at night—and make sure to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen in the morning, since alpha hydroxy acids like glycolic acid can make your skin more sensitive to sunlight.
L’Oréal Paris Men Expert™ Vita Lift Anti-Wrinkle & Firming Moisturizer: This one’s for the guys! With time, signs of age, such as loss of firmness and wrinkles, can start to appear. This moisturizer can help fight the appearance of sagging skin on your face and neck, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and make skin feel firmer. Plus, it’s infused with peppermint leaf extract to help soothe razor burn—a must if you shave every day. This non-greasy, non-sticky moisturizer provides long-lasting hydration. Apply it twice daily to a clean face and neck. Don’t forget to follow up with broad-spectrum sunscreen afterwards to help protect your skin from the sun!
L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Triple Power™ Intensive Overnight Face Mask: If your complexion feels like it needs a little extra hydration this spring, turn your attention to this overnight face mask. This luxurious, hydrating leave-on cream face mask forms a virtual protective mask to cradle skin. Immediately, skin feels hydrated. Every evening, apply the overnight face mask prior to sleep on cleansed skin, just as you would a traditional moisturizer. Smooth it over your face, neck, and jawline until absorbed and leave on overnight to see results.
