4 Tips to Clearer Skin This Spring

By  May 01, 2013


Keeping your skin blemish-free in the warmer months can be a challenge between sweat, sunscreen, and pore-clogging makeup. It’s time to spring-clean your makeup and cleansing routine. Here are our top tips for keeping your skin fresh and clear this spring.

1. Try a BB Cream
Let your skin breathe by ditching your foundation and switching to a formula that works to improve your skin while you wear it. Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream combines intense moisturizing skin care and immediate skin-perfecting coverage. You not only get hydration and coverage, but this miracle cream controls shine, minimizes pores, and evens skin tone.

2. Clean Your Brushes
It’s time to spring-clean your makeup brushes! While ideally we should be cleaning our makeup brushes every few weeks depending on the frequency of use, it’s easy to fall behind. Make a point to clean all your brushes (try baby shampoo if you want to save on brush cleaner) to avoid bacteria buildup, which can cause breakouts.

3. Exfoliate
Slough away dead skin cells and let your radiance shine through! Our skin can get dry and flaky during winter, but gently exfoliating your skin one to two times weekly can keep it from looking dull.

4. Don’t Touch!
We can transfer oils and bacteria to our skin by touching our faces with clean and unclean hands. Make it a point to keep your fingers away from your face, and be sure to frequently clean anything that touches your face, such as pillowcases and cell phones. Wash or change your pillowcase every three days, and use an antibacterial wipe on your cell phone.
