5 Ways to Get Glowing Skin Once Winter Is Over 5 Ways to Get Glowing Skin Once Winter Is Over 5 Ways to Get Glowing Skin Once Winter Is Over

Winter is ending soon—and you might be noticing that your skin appears a little lackluster as we head into spring. It makes sense. After all, the dry air of winter can leave you with dry skin—and dry skin can look dull. The good news is, there are a few simple steps you can take to help create the appearance of glowing skin once winter is over. Here, find your post-winter skin care routine along with skin care product recommendations (including a charcoal mask) for spring.

Skin Care Tip #1: Wash Your Face with a Clay Facial Cleanser

Cleansing your skin should be something you do twice daily—morning and night—to rid the surface of your skin of dirt and impurities. But come springtime, you may want to consider switching your facial cleanser. Look for one that is formulated to add the appearance of radiance to your skin, like the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Cleanser. This facial cleanser is formulated to seamlessly transform from clay to mousse and remove everyday impurities from the surface of your skin without over-drying it. Use after use, dull skin appears more radiant and luminous. Daily, squeeze the facial cleanser into your hands and add water to transform it from clay to mousse. Gently massage the facial cleanser onto your face using circular motions, then rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry.

Skin Care Tip # 2: Use a Face Scrub to Exfoliate a Few Times a Week

If you find yourself with dull skin at the end of winter, exfoliation could be a great way to help get glowing again. The L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Smooth & Glow Face Scrub offers gentle yet effective exfoliation for glowing, baby-soft skin on face and lips. Immediately after use, skin feels smoother and looks glowing, while dull skin is polished away. Three times a week, smooth a small amount of face scrub onto dry skin with dry fingers, then massage it over your face with wet fingers. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry. You can also use it on your lips to improve their overall appearance.

Skin Care Tip #3: Pamper Yourself with a Charcoal Mask

Another skin care product worth adding to your skin care routine come the end of winter is a charcoal mask. The L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Face Mask draws out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and pollution, reduces the look of dull skin, increases luminosity, and evens out skin tone. Immediately, skin looks brighter with a glow. To use, smooth an even layer onto clean, dry skin, leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry. Use three times a week for best results.

Skin Care Tip #4: Add Peel Pads to Your Nightly Skin Care Routine

Nighttime is the right time to boost your glow, so add a peel pad to your pre-bedtime skin care routine. Formulated with glycolic acid, the L’Oréal Paris Bright Reveal Brightening Daily Peel Pads help resurface dull, uneven tone and rough texture to reveal youthful-looking skin. After cleansing, gently apply a peel pad in a circular motion, then follow up with moisturizer. Since glycolic acid can increase your skin’s sun sensitivity, make sure to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF 30 or higher as directed in the morning, as well as limit your amount of time in the sun, seek shade, and cover up exposed areas.

Skin Care Tip #5: Make Applying Moisturizer a Priority

Last but not least, spring’s not the time to start skipping out on moisturizer. In fact, quite the opposite. Using a moisturizer twice daily can help ensure your complexion stays radiant-looking. For spring, try the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Dry Skin, which is formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera water for long-lasting hydration and radiance. Simply smooth it over your face when you’re done cleansing.

Editor’s tip: Once you’re done cleansing, don’t completely towel dry. Applying moisturizer to damp skin can help lock in hydration.
