Shed Your Winter Skin: Protect and Nourish Your Skin This Spring

By Leila Cunningham, Head of Skin Care Products at CLN Company

Spring offers the ideal opportunity to declutter and refresh your space. This season symbolizes transformation, clarity, and fresh starts, making it the perfect moment to enhance your self-care regimen. Here are my top self-care priorities: skincare, regular exercise, eating fresh foods, and getting adequate sleep. 

Skin Deep -  Cleanse, Exfoliate, Nourish and Brighten  

In Spring, just as animals shed their thick coats, our skin also needs to shed dead, dull cells to reveal fresh, vibrant layers beneath. This season is the perfect time to rejuvenate your skin through cleansing, exfoliating, brightening, and nourishing. 

An evening cleansing routine with formulations that are both gentle and powerful enough at removing excess oils and makeup is essential. For those experiencing congestion or clogged pores, exfoliation is the simplest and most effective method to unclog pores. Aquafacial is an ideal at-home treatment that will deep clean and exfoliate your skin. The Aquafacial Cleansing Serum uses a combination of glycolic acid, which penetrates the skin to dissolve trapped oils, and hydrocleanse technology. The device's powerful suction removes oils and dead skin cells from the skin's surface, leaving it refreshed and clear. 

After thorough cleansing and exfoliation, your skin is primed for nourishment, hydration, and brightening. Incorporating products into your skincare routine that are enriched with vitamins C, B, and E, packed with antioxidants, and contain moisture-binding ingredients like hyaluronic acid, aloe, peptides, and plant-based actives, will rejuvenate your skin, leaving it looking fresh and luminous.  

Our Revitalizing Serum deeply nourishes and hydrates, promoting a healthy, radiant glow. Formulated with peptides, antioxidants, and essential minerals, this serum provides lasting hydration for vibrant and youthful skin. 

Move Your Body 

In Spring everything in nature starts to move. Warmer weather invites movement all around us. Now is the perfect opportunity to take advantage of the warmer climate and extended daylight to include a variety of outdoor activities in your routine, such as walking, hiking, cycling, and gardening. Engaging in physical activity enhances blood circulation, which is crucial for delivering nutrients and oxygen to your organs and cells. 

Exercise also stimulates nitric oxide release from endothelial cells which plays a key role in cardiovascular system. Research indicates that it promotes healthy aging by preventing the formation of wrinkles and keeping skin firm. It also helps to improve the quality of hair and nails.1

Sweating during exercise helps to flush out toxins and impurities from the pores. This natural flushing process contributes to clearer, more radiant skin.  

Eat Seasonal Foods  

Eating seasonal food not only tastes better but also offers a higher nutrient content due to its freshness and the fact that it reaches the market soon after being harvested. Our skin reaps the benefits from foods rich in nutrients like antioxidants, flavonoids, and minerals, which combat free radical damage and reduce inflammation. Healthy fats found in avocados, nuts, and seeds, sources of omega-3 fatty acids, are essential for cell function. These fats support cardiovascular health and exhibit potent anti-inflammatory properties.2 

Research shows that fish oil (rich in omega-3) may boost skin's immunity to UV damage through its ability to help increase protection against environmental aggressors.3 

As we transition from a colder time of the year, where comfort foods help keep us warm, to a season brimming with the freshest foods available opt for lighter foods that aid our digestive system. Do not forget to hydrate. Add more water, teas, and fresh juices to your diet to keep your metabolism up the speed.  

Getting Good Sleep 

Prioritizing sleep is crucial for overall well-being, including maintaining a healthy and radiant complexion. Sleep is a time when the body undergoes cell repair and regeneration. Both the amount and quality of sleep are critical. It's important to pay attention to your body's needs. Developing a consistent sleep schedule and adopting an effective pre-sleep routine can significantly enhance the quality and quantity of your sleep. 

Incorporating Spring Cleaning routines into your lifestyle can lead to fresh, radiant, and healthy skin. Additionally, eating fresh seasonal foods, engaging in physical activity, spending time outdoors, and ensuring quality sleep, can all boost your energy levels. Small lifestyle changes can lead to significant, lasting improvements. 

Try Aquafacial as part of your spring skincare routine, and get your best skin at any age, any time of year.
