When spring time starts after a long cold winter, it feels like a breath of fresh air – and that goes for your skin too.

During the winter your skin is exposed to cold dry air but with spring there is increased moisture in the air and the temperatures are warmer as well, not to mention the fact that your skin gets direct exposure to sunlight for longer hours. All this means that Spring time is generally kinder on the skin than winter.

That said, you still need to make sure you skin is supple and fresh and for that it’s important that the skin is hydrated.

How to make sure the skin stays hydrated differs depending on the type of skin you have:

For Dry Skin:

If you are the kind who has dry skin which becomes flaky during the winter, it’s important to moisturise and exfoliate the skin to get rid of the dryness. During the spring, a hydrating mask once a week (or twice if its too dry) will infuse the moisture the skin needs to keep dryness at bay.

Or you can whip up a homemade creamy mask of Avocados, olive oil and honey. Apply and keep for 15 minutes, then wash it off. It should infuse the moisture you need for your dry skin.

For Dull Skin:

If you have dull skin the first step is to get rid of the dead skin cells. In such cases exfoliation is most critical. As you exfoliate the dead skin cells will slough off and it will make your skin smoother and your complexion brighter.

If you want a DIY hack, then mix together some sugar and olive oil and exfoliate your skin with it. This should help clean the dead skin cells and brighten your skin.

For oily skin:

During the winter, irrespective of the type of skin, you need to slather on the moisturiser to keep dryness at bay. However, with spring, and more time outdoors, the skin needs to breathe and for those who have oily skin too much moisturiser can lock the oil in causing acne. In such scenarios, switch to a gel-based moisturisers – these are less likely to block the pores than oil-based ones.

Home DIY mask best suited for this skin type would be an Oatmeal and honey mask. Put it on and leave it for a few minutes, then wash it off with warm water. It should provide the hydration your skin needs without making it too oily

No matter what kind of skin you have; the first and most important way to ensure your skin is hydrated is to stay hydrated yourself. Drink plenty of water, and with the sun out, don’t forget your sunscreen.

Get the sunscreen that best suits your skin type with the right amount of SPF. It’s time to step out, enjoy the sun and let your skin breathe in the fresh spring air.
