Winter is over –– that means we can say goodbye to rigid temperatures and dry skin.
Changing seasons means it's time to update our skin-care routines. The pandemic highlighted how we need to take better care of ourselves. Now that we have to stay inside, we have the time to develop a fresh skin-care routine that can withstand both balmy days and afternoon showers.

If you're working out more at home now, sweat is your enemy. Washing your face regularly is the only way to keep your pores clear. Philosophy's Purity One-Step Facial Cleanser is gentle enough for daily use and can help remove make up! It's a great first step to daily skin-care routine.
When it's hot, less make up means less product to sweat off throughout the day. This spring, clear up dark spots with antioxidants and ditch the foundation. The Ordinary's Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% serum provides a high concentration of vitamin C, which gives the skin its natural glow.
3. CORTISONE CREAM
Seasonal allergies can also get in the way of healthy skin, and accounting for allergies can help you maintain an even tone and texture. Hydrocortisone creams can soothe redness and reduce swelling and itching. Sorry, pollen, not today!
4. EYE CREAM
Do you feel yourself squinting yet? Eye cream is crucial throughout the sunnier months to correct fine lines after your third day forgetting your sunglasses. SUNDAY RILEY's Auto Correct Brightening and Depuffing Eye Contour Cream is one of our favorites.
More sunlight and warmer weather is coming our way. And yes, you too need sunscreen. Experts recommend wearing at least SPF 15 sun screen or lotion to shield your face from those strong UV rays. Shiseido's Ultimate Sun Protector Lotion SPF 50+ has a lightweight texture that works like a dream for this time of year.
