A new season means new outfits, so why not new skin care routine? Along with transitioning your winter clothing to a lighter spring wardrobe, it’s the time of year when your skin also needs something different. As it starts to get warmer, it is less chilly outside, and there will be an increase in humidity. With all the weather changes, your skin will need Korean beauty products with a lighter texture. You need to adjust your beauty line-up for the warmer weather, but it should still be as hydrating as winter products. You definitely don’t want flaky skin during spring, so the products!
Here are five skin care changes that will help your skin as you move from winter to spring beauty routine.
Juice up on SPF
Although it is recommended that you use SPF all year round, but if you have not been diligent about it in winter, it is time to get back! Spring is the right time to get back into the habit of protecting your skin with at least SPF 30 or higher. Finding the right formulation can be a deciding factor on how regularly you use it. The bluer skies and brighter sun result in you requiring better protection.

Now that the winter is over, you may be tempted to skip out on moisturizer. But, just like SPF, every skin type should moisturize throughout the year. You just need to adjust the formula, depending on the season. You need to use a moisturizer formula that contains a humectant like hyaluronic acid. It moisturizes and prevents dehydration, but it does not suffocate the skin.
Acwell Aqua Clinity Cream is a lightweight yet nourishing moisturizer. It is ideal for both spring and summer. It contains Puritox Jin, which is a mix of peony extract, witch hazel extract, licorice extract, and bergamot fruit oil. The cream’s formulation also includes Centella Asiatica extract and hyaluronic acid to help soothe, hydrate, and improve skin texture. It gives your skin just the right amount of hydration without clogging your pores.
Repair is Important
Winter brings along with a lot of stressors that can wreak havoc on your moisture barrier. And once the moisture barrier is compromised and dehydrated, your skin can experience dryness, sebum overproduction, and sensitivity. To restore your complexion, your skin needs gentle and restorative ingredients like hyaluronic acid.
Rovectin Skin Essentials Activating Treatment Lotion is a Korean beauty essence that is nourishing and can strengthen the skin barrier. It contains hydrating hyaluronic acid, papaya extract, and caffeine, which can increase cell regeneration and depuff the skin. The hypoallergenic formulation does not contain any potentially irritating agents.
Just like the adage – ‘prevention is better than cure’ – the best way to treat breakout is to prevent them from happening. Along with proper cleansing, exfoliation is another line of defense to keep your pores clear.
Some By Mi AHA-BHA-PHA 30 Days Miracle Toner boosts natural cell turnover with a non-irritating formula. It contains papaya and witch hazel extracts along with a blend of AHAs, BHAs, and PHAs. You can use the toner daily as the acid content is low.
