Skin Care in Spring

Spring skincare: Everything you need to know now to provide your skin with optimal care.

What do you need to pay attention to now?

Spring is a wonderful season when nature blossoms, and everything comes back to life. However, our skin also needs special attention during this time. What do you have to pay attention to now in order to provide optimal care for your face, neck, décolleté, and hands?

The increased humidity and stronger sunlight require certain measures to maintain the health and beauty of the skin. In this blog post, I would like to provide you with some useful tips on how to optimize your skincare routine for spring.


Thorough cleansing is key to good skincare. In spring, it is especially important to rid your skin of dirt, sweat, and dead skin cells. Daily exposure to dirt, sweat, bacteria, and environmental factors can create a layer of grime on the skin, clogging pores and leading to acne, inflammation, and rashes. Regular cleansing helps remove this layer of dirt and keep the pores clear for a healthy complexion.

Insufficient cleansing can also contribute to premature aging and damage to the skin. When dirt and oil are left on the skin, they can combine with sunlight to create free radicals that damage skin cells and cause wrinkles, pigmentation spots, and other signs of aging.

However, it is important to cleanse the skin gently to avoid irritation or dryness. Overly aggressive cleansing can strip the skin of its natural oils and lead to dryness and itching. Using mild cleansers and avoiding excessive rubbing or scrubbing can help protect and maintain the skin’s health.

Peeling or HydraFacial

Regular exfoliation is an essential part of spring skincare. It helps remove dead skin cells and leaves the skin looking fresher, smoother, and more radiant. An HydraFacial, which combines cleansing, exfoliation, and revitalization in one treatment, can yield even better results.

Exfoliation or HydraFacial, on one hand, help cleanse and minimize pores. By removing dead skin cells, blood circulation is stimulated, and the appearance of impurities such as blackheads and pimples is reduced.

Exfoliation and HydraFacial can also soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. By gently removing dead skin cells, the skin is renewed, and early signs of aging are diminished.

Furthermore, exfoliation and HydraFacial enhance the effectiveness of skincare products. When dead skin cells are removed, active ingredients from creams and serums can be better absorbed by the skin.

However, it is important not to overdo exfoliation or HydraFacial, as this can irritate and dry out the skin. Once a week is typically sufficient for gentle exfoliation, while once a month is recommended for HydraFacial. Always use an exfoliant suitable for your skin type, and be sure to moisturize your skin with a moisturizer after exfoliation to restore its barrier function. If you go outside after exfoliation or HydraFacial, be sure to use sunscreen.


Spring is a season that brings a variety of changes in climate and environmental conditions. What should you pay attention to? The temperature and humidity rise, which can lead to increased sweating and skin dehydration. Therefore, it is critical to maintain skin moisture in spring to preserve healthy skin and a fresh appearance.

Adequate skin hydration is indispensable, as it helps strengthen the skin barrier and prevent the penetration of harmful substances. When the skin is dry, it can become more sensitive to external influences and increase susceptibility to skin irritations and inflammation.

Furthermore, sufficient skin hydration helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Moisture keeps the skin plump and elastic, preventing it from looking tired and saggy.

To maintain skin moisture in spring, it is important to incorporate moisturizers and hydration products into your daily skincare routine. Use lightweight, moisturizing products such as serums and moisturizers that help increase and preserve the skin’s moisture levels. When choosing your product, pay attention to your skin type.

Sun Protection

In spring, it is particularly important to protect yourself from the harmful effects of the sun. This is because the sun’s rays have a more intense impact on us during this season, as the days become longer and the sun sits higher in the sky.

Adequate sun protection is crucial to prevent skin cancer and premature skin aging. The UV rays from the sun can damage skin cells and increase the risk of skin cancer. They can also lead to premature aging of the skin, causing wrinkles, sunspots, and other signs of skin damage.

Therefore, in spring, especially when spending a lot of time outdoors, it is critical to use sufficient sun protection. This includes wearing protective clothing, sunglasses, and a hat, as well as applying sunscreen with a high sun protection factor.

It is essential to apply sunscreen regularly, especially after swimming or sweating, as it can lose its effectiveness otherwise. Even in the shade, it is necessary to protect yourself as the UV rays can still reach the skin.

Healthy Nutrition

A balanced diet is essential for maintaining healthy and youthful-looking skin. In spring, there are many fruits and vegetables that are particularly nutrient-rich and can contribute to keeping the skin healthy and radiant.

Vitamins and antioxidants play an important role in this regard. Vitamin C, for example, is a crucial nutrient that supports collagen production and can help make the skin firmer and more elastic. Good sources of vitamin C in spring include citrus fruits, berries, bell peppers, and broccoli.

Vitamin E and beta-carotene are also essential nutrients that can help protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals. Beta-carotene is mainly found in carrots, sweet potatoes, and kale, while vitamin E can be found in nuts, seeds, and whole grains.

Omega-3 fatty acids are also vital for healthy skin, as they have anti-inflammatory properties and can help reduce skin irritations and redness. Good sources of omega-3 fatty acids include fatty fish like salmon, mackerel, and herring, as well as nuts and seeds.

A balanced diet that is rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and omega-3 fatty acids can contribute to maintaining healthy and youthful-looking skin. By paying attention to a healthy diet in spring, you are not only benefiting your body but also your skin.


In spring, it is particularly important to drink enough water to keep your skin healthy and youthful. The warmer season often brings drier air and higher temperatures, which can dehydrate the body and subsequently dry out the skin.

Adequate hydration helps maintain the skin’s moisture balance, keeping it supple and radiant. Water also supports the elimination of toxins from the body, which can affect the skin as well.

When the body is not properly hydrated, it can lead to a slowdown in cell renewal and accelerate skin aging. Additionally, wrinkles and fine lines can form more quickly if the skin is not adequately moisturized.

In addition to water, there are other beverages that can help hydrate the body, such as unsweetened tea or fruit-infused water. However, it is essential to avoid sugary and alcoholic drinks, as they can further dehydrate the body.

Overall, maintaining adequate fluid intake is a critical factor for maintaining healthy and youthful skin in spring. To maintain the skin’s moisture balance and prevent premature aging, it is recommended to regularly consume water or other hydrating beverages and avoid sugary and alcoholic drinks.

Skin Type

In spring, it is especially important to pay attention to the right skin type when taking care of your face. Because depending on the skin type, the skin needs different care to stay healthy and radiant.

People with dry skin should turn to rich and moisturizing creams in spring to protect their skin from drying out. Oil-containing products can also help here to provide the skin with sufficient moisture.

People with oily or combination skin, on the other hand, should rather opt for light and moisturizing creams to avoid excessive sebum production. Mattifying products can help reduce shine and refine pores in this regard.

People with sensitive skin should pay particular attention to the ingredients in their skin care products and, if necessary, choose products without fragrances and alcohol to avoid irritation and redness.

Overall, then, it is essential to pay attention to the right skin type when it comes to facial care in the spring, to optimally care for the skin and protect it from damage. By paying attention to the needs of your skin and using appropriate products, you can maintain your healthy and radiant skin.

Keep Moving

Getting enough exercise and physical activity is crucial for health and well-being. After winter and often months of inactivity, the body requires movement and fresh air to get back into shape and improve fitness. This also has a positive impact on your appearance.

Regular physical activity can strengthen the immune system, which is particularly important during the transition period, when the weather is still unpredictable and the risk of colds and infections is higher. Exercise can also reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and cancer.

Furthermore, exercise has positive effects on mental well-being. Endorphins, also known as “happy hormones,” are released during physical activity and can reduce stress and anxiety. Exercise can also boost self-confidence and self-esteem.

In spring, there are many opportunities for outdoor sports such as cycling, hiking, or jogging. This allows you to enjoy nature while improving your physical fitness. Activities like yoga or Pilates can also be practiced outdoors, providing relaxation and balance to the stressful everyday life.

Overall, getting enough exercise and physical activity in spring is essential for health and well-being. By being physically active regularly, you can strengthen the immune system, reduce the risk of chronic diseases, and improve mental well-being. And when you feel good in your skin, you also look good in it.


If nature is coming back to life in spring, you should also allow yourself to blossom. What should you pay attention to? Gentle cleansing removes dirt and excess sebum, regular exfoliation and HydraFacial eliminate dead skin cells and improve blood circulation in the skin. Effective UV protection is particularly important in spring as the sun becomes stronger again. A sufficiently high sun protection factor helps prevent premature skin aging and damage from UV radiation.

A balanced diet with sufficient vitamins and nutrients is also essential to support the skin from the inside out. Specifically, vitamin C and E, as well as antioxidants, can help protect and regenerate the skin. Sufficient hydration and regular exercise are additional factors for a healthy and radiant appearance. Sufficient water intake helps keep the skin hydrated, while exercise improves blood circulation and oxygen supply to the skin. By addressing the needs of your skin and providing targeted care, you can maintain a radiant appearance and feel comfortable all around!
