As we say goodbye to the cold days of winter and wave hello to the fresh, blooming days of spring, it's time for a fresh start—and that includes our skincare regimen! Spring cleaning and skincare go hand and hand and upgrading your products as the seasons change is a great way to give your skin the nutrients and hydration it needs to thrive. And if you're looking for some new additions to your collection, Circcell has got you covered.
Throw Out Expired Products
The first step you want to take to spring clean your skincare is to get rid of anything that's expired. Skincare products, like most things in life, have a shelf life. And once they're past that expiration date, they can actually do more harm than good.
In fact, studies show that yucky bacterial and fungal contamination is rampant in skin and eye care products that are kept for too long. So go through your collection and toss out anything that's been hanging around for longer than it should.
Lighten the Load
Heavy winter moisturizers call out for the big guns to help our dry, dehydrated skin. Luckily, as the weather gets warmer, you can start to lighten up your routine. That means swapping out your heavy cream for lighter spring serums such as Circcell's luxury Dew PH Perfector, which acts as a perfecting primer and hydrating serum for all skin types.
The formula in Dew PH Perfector uses amino acids, lactic acid and botanicals such as camphor and arnica to refine pores, balance pH and restore radiance for an enviably dewy complexion—one that's perfectly matched to the renewal of spring!
Rejuvenate Your Skin
If you can't bear to part with moisturizer, you can wear an oxygenating serum like the ABO Face Rejuvenation Serum at night instead of during the day. This lightweight, silky serum will breathe new life into delicate facial skin that's left dull and listless after those gray winter days.
What’s more? The enriched oxygen and algae complex in Serum visibly smooths fine lines and wrinkles to give you a firmer, more toned effect. Meanwhile, micro-circulation properties in the elixir support a brighter appearance, gifting you an all-around uplifting experience.
The same as it can be with expired products, bacteria and fungi can lurk in your beauty tools. So be sure to deep clean tools like blush brushes twice a week with a gentle no-rinse soap.
After cleaning the blush brushes, do the same to your eyeliner brushes and other makeup applicators. Don't forget to deep clean any organizers or cleanable packaging that contain skincare products and cosmetics.
With all the layers of makeup and winter pollution, our pores can get pretty clogged. So give them a good deep clean with Circcell's Geothermal Clay Cleanser, it's a cleanser, makeup remover, and facial mask all in one! Formulated with key ingredients like geothermal arctic clay, meadowfoam seed oil, Chilean soap bark and almond oil, its oil and clay emulsion absorbs impurities and removes makeup and dead skin cells. Follow up with our hydrating facial cleansing milk to help rebalance skin from environmental stressors.
Organize, Organize, Organize
Do you remember that cool blue metallic eyeshadow that looked so good on the NYC runway models last winter? The one that made you look like a lizard when you applied it? Yeah, chances are you will never use it. And if there's anything you haven't used in months, years, or…ever, as in the case of the lizard lid eyeshadow, chances are you won't use it again. So get rid of it!
Once you've weeded out the old, it's time to make room for the new! So take this opportunity to organize your space. Wipe down surfaces, declutter drawers and put everything in its rightful place. You can also store away all your winter formulas.
In addition, look for merchandise that might help you keep your products more organized, like a brush holder or acrylic stand. This will help you feel calmer and more put together—and who doesn't want that?
Invest in New Products
Now that you've made some space, it's time to invest in new products that will make your springtime skin glow.
For starters, add Vitamin C serum, like Circcell’s Vitamin C Ampoules, to your routine. Vitamin C is one the most important ingredients in any skincare routine, but it's especially key in the springtime when we're spending more time outdoors and exposed to UV rays and pollution.
The ampoules ensure maximum results from just dabbing a small amount of its rich antioxidant product on your skin. So get ready to glow while enjoying the ultimate in environmental protection through Vitamin C Ampoules.
Sunscreen, of course, never goes out of style and the technology of skincare is always evolving. So—always be on the lookout for game-changing new products.
Change Up Your Color Palette
Now that you've switched out your heavy winter products for lighter spring formulations, it's time to change up your color palette.
A good rule of thumb is to go for brighter, more natural-looking colors in the spring and summer months. This means ditching the smoky eye in favor of a peachy nude or coral lip.
When it comes to your nails, think about trading that vampy red or black for a brighter hue like white, light pink or even a fun print.
Remember, just because something is trendy doesn't mean you have to follow the pack (remember the lizard lids!). Choose colors that make you feel pretty and confident—that's what counts!
