Winter and all the lovely skin conditions that come with it are slowly becoming thoughts of the past. Spring is right around the corner. Honestly, it’s a bit of a confusing time when it comes to shopping, because the weather is still a bit unsure which season it wants to represent. Are you supposed to buy a sundresses or coats? Sandals or boots?

Not only does our choice in wardrobe change with the seasons, but so does our skin. You could wait until springtime comes to invest in a new seasonally appropriate beauty routine, but honestly you need a new moisturizer—right now.

Finding skincare that can work in winter and spring can be a challenge. You need something that will supplement your skin in times of winter dehydration, but you also don’t want to use anything that will be too heavy once the temperatures begin to rise.

For a cleanser, you should opt for something that is gentle yet effective, that cleanses deeply, but leaves the skin feeling soft and pampered.

Also, never underestimate the power of a good serum! Serums are incredible; they deliver moisture and repair deep down into the skin where it really counts. Plus, they improve the effects of any moisturizer you put on top. Start introducing a serum into your regimen now and watch your winter worn skin transform into a springlike petal-soft state. The bonus is, when it gets warmer, you may be able to get away with using a serum in place of a moisturizer!

When it comes to moisturizers, your best bet for a transitional product would be something lightweight that packs a punch. The key is to find a product that has serious moisture power and radiance without weighing you down.
