5 tips to prepare your skin for spring.

As winter ends, the skin is often lighter due to a lack of melanin, a pigment synthesized by melanocytes when exposed to the sun's UV rays. Additionally, it may appear slightly dull and tired, due to the low temperatures and wind it has been exposed to for several months. Discover five tips to prepare your skin for the warmer days and the arrival of spring.

Topics:

1. Exfoliate your skin to make it clearer.

Often overprotected during the winter by creams and covering clothing, the skin needs to renew itself as spring approaches. To regain a radiant complexion and a regular skin texture, it is recommended to perform a gentle exfoliation once or twice a week. To do this, the use of a chemical, enzymatic, or fine-grain exfoliating treatment is advised. Indeed, the larger the grains, the greater the risk of skin abrasion. By eliminating dead cells and other impurities accumulated on the skin, exfoliants allow for a clean slate, while unclogging the pores. Moreover, this allows the skin to better absorb the active ingredients present in the treatments you might subsequently apply.

2. Lighten your skincare routine and bet on active ingredients that enhance radiance.

During winter, exposure to harsh weather conditions (cold, wind, rain...) often results in dry and dehydrated skin. It is also not uncommon to see redness and feelings of tightness appear during this period. In response, it is of course advisable to use nourishing and hydrating treatments. However, with the arrival of spring, it may be beneficial to lighten the texture of your skincare products by focusing more on serums, botanical blends, and lighter, fluid creams.

However, it should be noted that daily application of a moisturizing cream remains necessary. This treatment indeed forms a protective film and acts as a support for the natural hydrolipidic film of the skin to protect it from external aggressions and dehydration. Furthermore, it is recommended to apply targeted active ingredients to restore brightness to the face.

Our product recommendations:

  • Both in the morning and evening, after removing all impurities from your face, you can apply our radiance serum. Highly concentrated in a derivative of vitamin C (INCI name: Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate - 11%), it provides a real boost to dull and tired complexions. This treatment also contains 3% of silk tree aqueous extract (INCI name: Albizia Julibrissin Bark Extract). This Asian-origin plant revitalizes the skin. Working in synergy, these ingredients help slow down photoaging. You can also use our botanical blend for a sun-kissed complexion with buriti (INCI name: Mauritia Flexuosa (Buriti) Fruit Oil).Composed of 6 plant extracts and rich in beta-carotene, this serum revives the complexion's radiance and provides an immediate subtle tan.

  • In the evening, conclude your routine with the night radiance serum. Rich in antioxidant active ingredients, this treatment provides both preventive and corrective action against skin sagging and helps to reveal the skin's radiance.

3. Do not neglect hydration.

No matter the season, it is crucial to protect your skin from dehydration. Indeed, as previously explained, the hydrolipidic film on the surface of the epidermis is not sufficiently effective to act alone and its protective action must be supplemented by the daily application of a moisturizing cream.

Furthermore, with the arrival of sunny days, solar radiation and the risk of sunburn become more significant. Although they do not replace sunscreen, the hydrolipidic film and moisturizing creams have an occlusive effect that limits the penetration of UV rays.

Our product recommendations:

  • Enriched with hyaluronic acid (INCI name: Sodium Hyaluronate) and provitamin B5 (INCI name: Panthenol), our hydrating serum compensates for the natural decrease of hyaluronic acid in the skin for a more hydrated, plumper, and smoother skin. Lightweight, this serum is quickly absorbed by the skin, allowing you to apply your cream afterward.

  • Minimalist and fragrance-free, our moisturizing cream for the face, with just 9 ingredients, hydrates and nourishes the epidermis. Its light and non-greasy texture is suitable for dry, normal, and combination skin types. It is also appropriate for use on sensitive skin.

  • To hydrate your entire body, you can rely on our body moisturizing cream with 10 ingredients. Featuring a non-greasy texture, its application is suitable for all skin types.

4. Prepare the skin for tanning with a self-tanning treatment.

When the sun rises on the horizon, it can be tempting to quickly expose oneself to it in order to achieve a beautiful tan. However, this practice is not without consequences: sunburn, premature skin aging (wrinkles, sun spots...), skin conditions. To avoid these harmful effects while still sporting a tanned face, the use of a self-tanner can be a solution.

A self-tanner is a skincare product that allows for the achievement of a uniform, sun-kissed complexion similar to a tan, without having to expose oneself to several hours of sunlight. It typically contains a molecule called dihydroxyacetone (DHA), which is plant-derived. When applied topically, this compound induces a sun-kissed complexion in brown tones within 4 to 6 hours, by reacting with the amino acids in the stratum corneum of the epidermis through a Maillard reaction to form pigments, the melanoidins, which are responsible for the skin's coloration.

It is important to clarify that melanoidin is different from melanin. Their production occurs only on the surface and this molecule is eliminated when the skin renews itself. Unlike melanin, melanoidin does not have any protective power against the sun's UV rays. Always remember to protect your skin using a broad-spectrum sunscreen to avoid the harmful effects of UV rays.

Our product recommendation:

  • Used alone or mixed with your facial cream, our self-tanning serum provides a natural tan just six hours after application, thanks to the combination of self-tanning molecules derived from plants: the DHA and theerythrulose. The number of drops applied and the frequency of use will allow you to adjust the intensity of the tan achieved.

5. Protecting your skin from the sun.

With the arrival of spring, the sun and all its dangers also make a comeback. Indeed, the sun generates an excess of free radicals within the body's cells. These are reactive and unstable species of oxygen, capable of causing damage to DNA, cells, and certain proteins. Free radicals have several harmful effects on the skin : they accelerate skin aging, cause sunburns, burns, pigmentation spots and, in the most severe cases, skin cancers.

Therefore, it is imperative to protect oneself by applying broad-spectrum sun protection daily to exposed areas. At Typology, we have developed a whole range of sun care products, allowing for effective protection of the face and body from UV rays.
