Goodbye Winter. Hello Summer. Skin Care Tips For Spring and Summer

Spring is in the air every where you look around..... Sorry think I might have got the words wrong there I think its meant to be love is in the air but anyway its true spring is in the air and the sun is starting to show its face more and warm days are coming which is what we have all been waiting for. However when the weather changes so should our skin care routine so here is some tips that will hopefully help you out in the warmer days to come.

1. SPF - Picking the right day cream is always important but when we are moving in to more sunny weather its even more important. When your picking your day cream make sure its got a UVA and UVB protection, its always important even in the winter for your day cream to have a UVA and UVB protection because the sun is still shining in the winter. Now if your wondering why do you need UVA and UVB protection well I will tell you. There is 3 types for rays altogether UVA, UVB and UVC. UVA is bad for the skin because it can cause skin ageing and wrinkles. UVB is the ray that cause sunburn which can permanently damage the skin over time but this ray can also cause skin cancers. UVC never gets to earth because its stopped by the ozone layer and this is really good since its the strongest ray of all of them but for now I dont think we really need to worry about it. So if your day cream has got a high SPF then the better its going to protect your skin from the sun. 

2. Exfoliate - To making sure your moisturiser gets the chance to really help your skin its a good idea to exfoliate because there is no point getting a new fab face cream if your just going to put it on to a layer of dead skin. Exfoliating is so good for the skin, whenever I exfoliate my face I always feel like it looks brighter and your new SPF day cream can get right in to your skin to keep it looking moisturised and protect it from the sun. When your picking an exfoliator make sure its not to harsh because this can damage the skin and it can cause micro-tears and irritation so try and get a gentle exfoliator with ingredients like brown sugar. Its a good idea to exfoliate 1 or 2 times a week however everyone's skin is different so if you feel like you need to exfoliate more than that then go head but no more than 3 times in a week because you can end up damaging you skin and removing the protective barrier that your skin has.

3.  Cleanse - Since its not good to exfoliate your skin ever day then its a good idea to cleanse your skin instead. A good cleansing routine can help make your skin look brighter and healthier. Cleansing at night is also so important to get all that SPF day cream off your skin because even though its your skins best friend during the day its not something your skin wants to be wearing when you sleep because it can clog you pores and cause spots and thats not something any of us want. Just spend 1 or 2 minutes massaging your cleanser in to your skin in upwards motions and then rinse away with warm water but make sure its not hot water which it bad for the skin.
