Spring Cleaning for your Skincare Routine

Don't limit Spring Cleaning to just your house. Take this opportunity to also revamp your skincare routine so you can achieve #yourhealthiestskin this season!



#1 IF IT DOESN'T SPARK JOY, THEN DECLUTTER (S/O to Marie Kondo!)

Haven't used it in 3 months?

Not working for you?

Is this one of 10 moisturizers?

TOSS IT!!


Expired products:

  • Are ineffective (hello sunburns!)

  • Can cause harmful rashes (contact dermatitis) when their ingredients break down

  • Can overgrow bacteria



#2 COMMIT TO CLEANLINESS

Clean your makeup brushes!

When unwashed, they can harbour dead skin cells, bacteria


Wash your pillowcase & sheets once per week.

Use a fragrance-free detergent & avoid fabric softeners



#3 MASTER THE BASICS

Without these fundamentals, skin health and results are difficult to achieve or sustain

1) Cleanse

2) Moisturize

3) Sunscreen



#4 BUY NICE OR BUY TWICE

How our Dermatologists choose their products:

  • Quality over quantity

  • Look for scientifically proven ingredients

  • Tailor your regimen to your skincare goals

  • Choose multi-use, multi-ingredient products to simplify


#5 PREPARE FOR SPRING

Load up on sunscreen

You always need way more than you think!


Transition to lighter formulations

Replace creams/ointments with lighter gels/lotion-based formulas


Brighten up your products

Get ahead of pigmentation by proactively focusing on vitamin C, AHA/BHAs, azelaic acid, sunscreen and other brightening agents!
