Spring is just around the corner! And there is no better time to review your toilet bags and update your skincare routine to prevent breakouts and get that glowing skin to suit the season.

Why change the routine?

The change from cold to warmer weather can cause several skin issues for most of us. As your skin's natural oils come back into balance after the dry winter, you may notice an increase in oiliness which may cause breakouts and acne. Your thick winter cream will not help and may even make things worse. With the change of seasons, the needs of our skin change, and so should the way we care for it.

So, put those winter skincare habits aside and start fresh this spring with our top five skincare tips for radiant skin!

     1. Exfoliate

During the winter, the weather can leave a buildup of dead skin cells, which results in dry and dull-looking skin. As the weather gets warmer, we no longer need the winter layers of skincare. Exfoliating your skin becomes essential to achieve vibrant and young-looking skin for the new season. 

That is why we encourage you to add an exfoliator to your spring skincare routine. Exfoliators improve skin structure and appearance by removing skin accumulation. They may prevent breakouts and improve your skin’s capacity to absorb skincare products such as serums or oils. 

At Neven, we have the best mask for exfoliating your skin during springtime. And the best part, it is formulated with only five ingredients. Our pink blossom mask contains kaolin clay, red illite clay, aloe vera powder, hibiscus powder, and rose extract. They offer the best experience when it comes to resurfacing your skin, leaving it smooth and supple. Free of all chemical products, Pink Blossom will not only cleanse and exfoliate your skin, but it will also boost its hydration without damaging the skin barrier. In addition to that, it allows your skin to welcome other products that improve nourishment and hydration.

How to use Pink Blossom: 

  1. Mix 1.5-2 teaspoons of the mask with a spoon of water or hydrosol. 
  2. Add a face oil of your choice, for extra nourishment. 
  3. Mix well until it becomes a paste-like consistency. 
  4. Apply the mixture using a gentle brush or with your hands. 
  5. Leave for 15-20 minutes and rinse off with lukewarm water with gentle circular movements. 

Use our Pink Blossom mask once or twice a week for better skin this spring!

   2. Privilege Light Textures

The weather during spring is usually more humid. Using heavy creams as you used to during winter might leave your skin greasy, and we don’t want that. Spring is the time to prioritize light textures such as jellies, fluids, or floral waters, and of course, you need to be mindful of your skin type. The important thing is to apply daily products that provide comfort, hydration, and protection and treat the problems of each. Switching to lighter serums and oils will help you keep healthy and shiny skin. 

Our Balance face serum has been specially formulated with argan oil to balance the sebum level and hydrate the skin without leaving it greasy. Plus, it will soothe your skin and calm the redness caused by the sun. Perfect for the spring season!

   3. Switch to Lighter Makeup

Depending on your skin type, you can choose a light-coverage liquid foundation, tinted moisturizer, BB cream if your skin is dry, and mineral powder if you have oily skin. Some of these also come with SPF. Choose products with fewer ingredients. They are less likely to irritate your skin. Choosing light-coverage makeup will help you avoid clogging your pores and prevent breakouts.

  4. Use Sunscreen Every Morning

As the temperature rises and the sun is out more often, you will most likely enjoy more time outside. With that comes, the need to daily use SPF, as prolonged exposure to the sun's rays can be harmful to your skin. 

Wearing SPF daily during your morning routine will help you keep your skin healthy and prevent premature aging. UV radiation remains constant on sunny and cloudy days. That's why it is important to use sunscreen even when it’s not sunny as your skin needs protection from UV rays at all times.

  5. Bring a Facial Mist Wherever You Go

Facial mists are light and easy to carry wherever you go and are an effective way to refresh, soothe and cool your skin wherever you are. They give you instant hydration, whether you are sitting at your desk or you are walking outside. Sprayed directly on the skin, our facial mists may cleanse and tone the skin by preserving its natural sebum.

Tip: If you like to use Neven's floral mists as a light cleanser, spray your face thoroughly and use a cotton or reusable pad to remove any impurities and environmental pollution.
