Known as the season of renewal, spring is the perfect time to reassess your skin care regimen to prepare for the warmer days ahead. Gone are the days of below-freezing temps and having to wrap ourselves in scarves—now it’s all about showing a little skin! And while your complexion may have benefited from the use of a heavy cream during the dry, cold winter months, applying a lightweight water-based moisturizer might be a better idea in the spring. Want to put your best face forward? Just follow these five spring-specific skin care tips!

1. Use a Gentle Cleanser

Want to spring clean your skin care product stash? Start by investing in a gentle option, like micellar water, which can also remove makeup. Since micellar water doesn’t require any rinsing, it can be especially handy when you’re traveling (hello, spring break!) or in need of a little post-workout refresh. Micellar water is powered by tiny micelles—oil molecules—that attract dirt, oil, and makeup and lift them off your skin. The L’Oréal Paris Micellar Water Complete Cleanser for Normal to Oily Skin purifies and mattifies, the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Water Complete Cleanser for Normal to Dry Skin hydrates and soothes, and the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof – All Skin Types intensely purifies. Just saturate a cotton pad with the micellar water of your choice and wipe it across your face. For eye makeup removal, hold the pad over your closed eye for a few seconds, then wipe.

2. Switch to a Lightweight Moisturizer

Once you’re done cleansing, it’s time to moisturize! Moisturizing should be a twice-daily step in your skin care routine year-round. But while you may have found you needed to use a heavier formula during the winter months, the same might not hold true for spring. Consider using a lighter-weight moisturizer, such as a water-based formula, designed for your skin type. The L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Oily Skin, L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Dry Skin, and L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Extra Dry Skin are formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe water to help provide long-lasting hydration.

3. Don’t Forget the Broad-Spectrum SPF!

The final step in your skin care routine? Broad-spectrum sunscreen, of course! Yes, even on rainy spring days, since you can still get burned when it’s cloudy outside, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation. If you find yourself in a rush, you can always use a moisturizer formulated with broad-spectrum SPF, like the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Day Lotion SPF 30 to help cut a step out of your skin care routine. Apply it 15 minutes before sun exposure and make sure you put it in your purse so that you can reapply every two hours. Going on vacation and know you’ll be spending lots of time in the sun? In addition to a broad-spectrum SPF of 30 or higher, you should also pack a pair of shades. Remember to seek shade, too—especially during the sun’s peak hours of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.!

4. Try a BB Cream

Just as with your moisturizer, you may have reached for a heavy foundation in the winter. But spring is all about lightening things up. For those days when you just want a natural look, try using a BB cream (a.k.a. “beauty balm” cream), like the L’Oréal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream. This BB cream has four actions in one—so you’ll really be able to streamline your routine! It primes to smooth skin’s texture, corrects skin for an even-looking complexion, hydrates for all day moisture, and perfects to hide imperfections. Talk about a workhorse! To apply, we like using a makeup sponge, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender.  

5. Fake a Golden Glow

Ready to come out of hibernation? You can get a faux tan by using self-tanner. There are so many types of self-tanner available, so using one has never been easier. Try a mist, like the L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze™ ProPerfect Salon Airbrush Self-Tanning Mist, or towelettes, like the L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze™ Self-Tanning Towelettes. Go on, get your glow on!
