CREATE YOUR SPRING SKINCARE ROUTINE
Spring is the season of new life (blooming flowers!) and rejuvenation (spring cleaning!) Changes in climate and weather call for mindful, transitional skincare to bring your skin maximum support and protection. At Ole Henriksen, our products are all about helping you reach your seasonal skincare goals seamlessly.
WHAT IS TRANSITIONAL SKINCARE?
As temperatures rise or drop, the elements interact with your skin differently, such as the hotter sun in summer, stronger winds in winter, or more allergens in springtime. By evaluating your climate and adjusting your skincare routine to match the turn of seasons, you can prevent discomfort and damage and promote overall healthier and happier skin.
If you’re not sure what sort of ingredients should make up your morning or nighttime
routine, check out The Glow Cycle. It’s a routine guide for all skin types, that recommends always including a vitamin C in the morning and a chemical exfoliant at night (along with a ceramide-rich moisturizer in the am and pm, of course!). With that regimen template in mind, you can alter the potency and consistency of your morning
and night products best support skin no matter the season.
TRANSITIONING INTO SPRING SKINCAREWhether you have normal, combination, dry or oily skin, springtime can bring challenges to your skin condition and the effectiveness of your existing routine. Pollen, humidity, UV rays from the sun and more environmental factors all come with the beautiful buzz of spring.
Look to the TRUTH COLLECTION for your Springtime essentials. Banana Bright Vitamin C Serum offers brightening benefits along with protection from environmental stressors. Spring is also a good time to re-up on SPF—make sure you always have Banana Bright Mineral Sunscreen in your bag so you can reapply every 2 hours!
HOW TO PROTECT SKIN FROM SPRING WEATHERWeather can be rough on skin, even if it seems like it’s mild out. It’s not unusual for your skin to be mad about quickly-changing weather conditions. Protecting skin by keeping the moisture barrier strong, adding or minimizing certain ingredients, and shielding it with Banana Bright Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 every day are key ways to pivot your routine into spring. Knowing how to protect and revitalize your skin can help you maintain a juicy, hydrated complexion with a glow reminiscent of morning dew, no matter your location.
CREATING A CUSTOM SPRING SKINCARE ROUTINE
Creating a custom spring skincare routine for both morning and night will keep your complexion well adjusted. Both routines should revolve around layering your products to build up to the desired results, including cleansers, treatments, serums, eye creams and protective SPF.
