The Latest Skin Wisdom from the Skincare Authority herself, Biba De Sousa



Declutter and refresh your skincare arsenal.

It is essential to declutter your skincare arsenal each season. Not only because seasonal makeup and skincare drawer cleaning is a great health practice, but it is also important to focus on simplifying your routine and adapting to the changing environmental conditions. If you wonder what is the shelf life of your skin care products, it is usually 18 months. 


Here are some tips to help you optimize your skincare routine and transition effectively into the beautiful, warm springtime weather:


1. Evaluate Your Current Products:

Determine which ones are essential and effective for your skin type and concerns. Discard any expired or unused products to declutter your collection.


2. Simplify Your Routine:

Simplify your skincare routine by focusing on the basics: cleanser, moisturizer, sunscreen, and targeted treatments, such as hydration boosters, exfoliants,  vitamin C serum, etc. In spring, the weather may become warmer and more humid and you may not need heavy creams or super-occlusive products, so opt for lighter formulations that provide hydration without weighing down your skin.


3. Increase Sun Protection:

As the sun strengthens in spring, it's crucial to prioritize sun protection. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher daily, even on cloudy days, to shield your skin from harmful UV rays.


4. Last Chance Before Summer to Target Specific Concerns:

If you have specific skin concerns, such as hyperpigmentation or breakouts, incorporate targeted treatments into your routine as needed and have peels and medical esthetic treatments before the hot weather sets in. 


5. Skintuition - Listen to Your Skin:

Pay attention to how your skin responds to changes in your routine and adjust accordingly. If you notice any signs of sensitivity or irritation, simplify your routine further and focus on gentle, soothing products to restore skin health.

To summarize,  focus on lightweight, non-comedogenic products that maintain your skin and combat eventual oiliness without sacrificing hydration.
