Spring is officially here after what has seemed like a never-ending winter! With spring comes warmer weather, an increase in humidity, extra sunshine, and a need to think about updating your skin care routine. In this post, the professionals at Southwest Michigan Dermatology in Portage has some skin care tips for you now that spring is here.


With spring comes the desire to bring some of the healthy glow back to your skin. Exfoliation is a great way to help rid your skin of any buildup and toxins that have built up over the winter. You may even want to consider microdermabrasion followed by moisturization.

Change formulas

Many people use heavier lotions and serums during the winter because of the lack of humidity and dry air. However, as humidity increases, there usually isn’t a need for heavy oils you may have been using during the winter. Instead you can try something that’s oil free with SPF.

Use sunscreen

While it’s incredibly important to wear sunscreen all year long (winter included), it’s even more important once the sun’s rays are closer in the spring and summer. Just because you’re not yet in shorts and the sun doesn’t feel that warm in spring, you are still absorbing a lot of UV rays. Don’t wait for summer to begin applying and reapplying sunscreen while you’re outside.

Apply eye cream & wear sunglasses

The increased brightness of the some that comes with spring may cause you to squint. In order to combat the lines and wrinkles that can come from squinting, throw on a pair of sunglasses and invest in eye cream that will not only help fill in lines and wrinkles but also block UV which can wreak havoc on your skin’s collagen.
