The skincare routine that will give you back your glow

7 steps to prep your skin

Cleanse

Switch up that creamy cleanser. Come springtime, there’s tons more humidity in the air, so a lighter-textured gel or mousse is all your skin really needs.

Try: White Botanical Exceptional Cleansing Mousse, $20, yvesrocher.ca

Exfoliate

Used once or twice a week, a good exfoliant will slough off dead skin and deep clean pores. This gentle, charcoal-based scrub also helps absorb the toxins hiding out in your skin, leaving everything ultra-cleansed and smooth.

Try: Daily Superfoliant, $79, dermalogica.ca

Add an essence

Yet another Korean beauty staple we’re mad about. Gently pat a few drops of essence onto skin and it’s super-tiny molecules go deep to deliver big moisture.

Smooth on serum

The weather may be warmer, but don’t ditch your oil-based serum. Use it to target specific concerns like fine lines, firmness and uneven skin tone. TIP: Ladies with oily skin, fear not—serums won’t make more oil or cause breakouts.

Moisturize

This is skin’s best defence: It seals in all the good stuff and keeps the bad (pollution, UV rays) out. Now’s the time to swap your heavy moisturizer for light gel-based one.

Treat yourself

A once-a-week 15-minute sheet mask treatment gives skin an extra boost. Turn on Netflix while the mask does its thing. 

Try: Charlotte Tilbury Instant Magic Dry Sheet Mask, $27, holtrenfrew.ca

Get lippy

Often forgotten, lips need attention, too. Look for a scrub containing sugar crystals and natural butters or oils to gently buff awake flakes and restore moisture. Lips will be soft, nourished and ready for a swipe of new spring colour.

Try: Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment Perfecting Wand, $29, sephora.com
