After months of snow, rain, and frigid temperatures, spring is finally on the horizon. As the seasons change, so should your skincare routine. Winter can be harsh on the skin, so it’s important to switch things up in the warmer months. Why not take advantage of the spring in your step and pare down your skin routine? From tossing out old products to choosing a lighter moisturizer, we’ve got you covered with these 7 spring skincare tips.
Spring Clean Your Skincare Products
Spring means out with the old. At the top of our “out list” are products at the back of our bathroom shelf, and any that are over 6 months old. It’s time to toss that two-year-old serum and refresh your trusted basics. Once you’ve cleared out your bathroom cabinet, take some time to cleanse your makeup brushes. Regularly washing your brushes will help to remove dirt, oil, and bacteria that can cause breakouts.
Avoid Harsh Ingredients
Your skin is your body’s protective layer, so it’s vital you take gentle care of it. This includes checking the ingredients list of your skincare products to ensure they’re free of any questionable additives. Choose sulfate- and paraben-free products such as our Brazilian 4-Play Moisturizing Shower Cream-Gel, which nourishes skin while it gently cleanses.
Smooth Tired Winter Skin
Dry winter air can make skin dry, flaky, and dull. Sloughing off dead skin cells is a must to achieving vibrant and youthful-looking skin as the new season rolls in. To get skin spring-ready, try adding an exfoliating body scrub to your routine, like Bom Dia Body Scrub which instantly retexturizes with 10% AHA BHA to deliver smooth, radiant skin while targeting rough, bumpy patches.
Hydrate With a High-Quality Moisturizer...
Our award-winning, irresistibly scented Brazilian Bum Bum Cream is the ultimate body moisturizer. It helps to visibly smooth and tighten the appearance of your skin thanks to potent, caffeine-rich guaraná extract, while fast-absorbing cupuaçu butter delivers deep hydration and essential fatty acids deep into the skin. It’s an instant treat that leaves skin feeling silky soft.
...Or Try a Body Oil
To replenish even more moisture and nourishment to dry skin, try layering a body oil like Bum Bum Body Firmeza Oil underneath your Brazilian Bum Bum Cream. Bonus points if you take a moment to massage in the oil, which helps to depuff and increase microcirculation. If you’re worried about using a body oil as the temperatures warm up, don’t be—this formula sinks in quickly, with no greasy after-feel.
Don’t Neglect Your Feet
This season, make sure your feet look (and feel) just as good come sandal season. Our feet rarely see the light of day during the winter months, so give them some TLC with a foot care tool for smoothing particularly hard skin on your feet, and follow with a moisture-rich cream. Lucky for you, our Samba Foot Fetish Cream comes with an adorable foot file in the shape of a surfboard for smooth, happy feet.
Restore Hard-Working Hands
Our hands can take the biggest brunt of harsh winters, as they’re often exposed to the elements even when we’re bundled in coats. Bring dry hands back to being their best by including our Brazilian Touch Hand Cream in your spring skin routine, which soothes and nourishes even the driest hands with its fast-absorbing formula. Make sure to reapply whenever you wash your hands to keep them smooth and supple.
Shimmer Into Spring with Radiant Skin
The easiest (and quickest) way to liven up a dull complexion left behind by winter is to incorporate some illuminating products into your spring skincare routine. Try our new Rio Radiance Body Glow Cream for instant luminosity with a beachy, nostalgic scent. Either apply all over or use the cream to highlight specific areas like your arms and collarbone. Simply smooth on and go—you'll be looking gorgeous and glowing all season long.
