With spring finally upon us, many people are now breathing a sigh of relief because of the respite they’ll be getting from the dry and harsh winter weather. With that said, although it’s true that springtime conditions are easier for your skin to deal with, it will still need some help in doing that. There are a few things that you should be doing to give your complexion a good start this season so that it continues to look its best even as the summer months approach.

Need some help? Read on as OROGOLD shares seven must-know skincare tips for spring:

1) Exfoliate the Winter Roughness Away

Due to the harsh conditions that the winter months delight us with, skin cells can really struggle. One of the impacts of this is a decline in cell turnover. This is the rate at which your skin sheds its older and dead skin cells, replacing them with the fresher cells that lie beneath. This is why it’s so common for the skin to look dull and rough in the winter. All of those old and lackluster cells stick around on the skin’s surface for so much longer!

So, once the weather starts to warm up, keep the first of our skincare tips in mind and consider increasing how often you exfoliate. You may want to add in an extra session once a week. This should hopefully coincide with a natural increase in sebum production – something that is stimulated by the warmer weather.

With that said, you need to be mindful about not over-exfoliating. Exfoliating slightly more often in the spring can be beneficial, but only if you do so with a gentle exfoliator. A product like the 24K Multi-Vitamin Deep Peeling + Mandelic Acid from OROGOLD would be perfect. With a blend of bamboo powder and mandelic acid, it exfoliates gently but very effectively. The fact that it also contains vitamins, jojoba esters, and coconut oil means that it won’t leave your skin feeling irritated in the slightest, even if you exfoliate more often than you did in the winter.

2) Lighten Up Your Moisturizer

As we mentioned earlier, sebum production starts to rise as the weather warms up. Sebum plays a few different important roles, one of which is to keep your skin naturally moisturized. 

This doesn’t mean that you can give up the moisturizer, however. An extra moisture boost is still essential to keep your skin feeling healthy, but you don’t need to turn to a thick cream for this. While you may have favored richer formulas in the winter months, springtime is when you should be lightening things up when it comes to the face creams you use.

One moisturizer that’s ideal for spring and summer is the OROGOLD 24K Golden Dew Serum-in-Cream. It feels like a serum, looks like a cream, and does the job of both. It’s wonderfully hydrating and full of antioxidants. 

The 24K Rose Gold Radiant Silk Cream would be another good choice. Thanks to the vitamin A, caffeine, rose hip extract, and amino acids in this blend, it will quickly leave your sallow winter skin looking perky and refreshed, without weighing your skin down. 

3) Be Prepared For Breakouts


If you have acne-prone skin, the arrival of spring is when you need to start preparing for an increase in breakouts. This is caused by the combination of a few different factors. Firstly, the way in which cell renewal speeds up means that dead skin cells end up piling up on your skin much faster. This is why the first of our skincare tips was to exfoliate more often.

However, even with a new and improved exfoliation regime, you’ll struggle to keep up with the amount of extra sebum that your skin is producing. This, coupled with all of those extra dead skin cells, means that clogged pores are more likely.

You then also need to consider the inflammation caused by sun exposure. When clogged pores become inflamed, acne breakouts aren’t far behind.

You may think that this means that there’s no hope when it comes to keeping the appearance of breakouts at bay. However, if you start now, you’ll have a good chance of sporting an acne-free complexion throughout the warmer months. Make sure that you’re cleansing your face twice a day, double cleansing if needed. The OROGOLD 24K Mousse Cleanser works well for both a single or a double cleanse. Then, apply a hydrating, non-comedogenic serum and follow up with a lightweight moisturizer. This may seem like an overly simplified routine but it covers all bases without overloading your skin. 

4) Make Sure That You Have a Good Sunscreen

UV rays damage the skin year-round, even in the darkest days of the winter. However, once spring arrives, UV radiation increases, with this continuing to rise well into the summer. 

Therefore, although a good sunscreen should be in your skincare arsenal 365 days a year, this becomes even more important once the warmer months roll in. UV damage has been shown to cause up to 80% of the visible signs of skin aging on the face, making this one of the skincare tips that you need to remember. 

While there are plenty of SPF ratings to choose from, the general recommendation is to go with SPF 30. The exception is if you have very sensitive skin that needs more protection. 

Although it’s common knowledge that sun protection is important for the skin, many people still fail to do it. Why? Because they don’t like how it leaves a white cast on their skin, and also believe it to be an inconvenience. The OROGOLD 24K Skin Tone SPF 30 takes care of both of these issues. Being an SPF moisturizer means that it melts into the skin in the way that a regular moisturizer would. It can also replace the moisturizer and the sunscreen that you use in the mornings, simplifying your skincare routine.

5) Add More Antioxidants to Your Skincare Routine

Even someone who is extremely diligent about sun protection will still struggle to completely protect their skin. Unfortunately, some sun damage is inevitable. This, paired with the other ways in which the environment wreaks havoc on the complexion, means that the skin ends up dealing with a fair bit of free radical damage each night. Due to stronger UV rays, as well as the fact that you’ll likely be spending more time outside and exposed to air pollution, free radical damage tends to rise in the spring and summer.

Free radical damage not only brings on fine lines and wrinkles so much sooner, but it also causes the loss of firmness, discoloration, dullness, and more. It goes without saying that you want to avoid this as much as possible, and antioxidants are your best weapon.

Just about every expert would agree that antioxidants are most effective when applied as a serum. Here at OROGOLD, we have several antioxidant-rich serums that would be perfect for your spring skincare routine. The 24K Vitamin C Booster Facial Serum is one. Vitamin C has been proven to be capable of reducing and preventing the appearance of UV damage. It’s a fantastic ingredient to use in the spring, and this serum contains plenty of it.

The 24K Nano Ultra Silk Serum is brimming with antioxidants too. It also contains a blend of lightweight plant oils. This enables it to hydrate without leaving the skin feeling heavy or sticky.

6) Revive a Dull Complexion With a Hydrating Mask


If you’re looking for a way to get rid of that winter dullness from your complexion, one of our top skincare tips would be to invest in a good face mask. Although a mask is only used once a week, it’s more than capable of rejuvenating the look of your skin, restoring the radiance that it sported last summer.

The key is in choosing the right face mask. Sheet masks are revered for their hydrating capabilities and can be used on all skin types. The 24K Deep Tissue Rejuvenation Mask and Collagen Eye Mask is particularly popular for reviving the complexion. 

Of course, if you’d like to reduce how oily your skin feels in the spring and summer, a clay mask is what you need. A product like the 24K Advanced Facial Mask will soak up excess oil and impurities, leaving your skin feeling detoxified and refreshed.

7) Spring Clean Your Skincare Stash

Some people spring clean their houses, others spring clean their wardrobes…you need to spring clean your skincare stash. This is one of the skincare tips that you need to remember at least a couple of times a year. It’s so easy to allow old and expired products to pile up in your skincare collection but using those products could end up harming your skin.

How? Once again, it all comes down to free radical damage. However, rather than blaming the sun, this time your expired skincare products are the culprit. When certain ingredients oxidize, those compounds start a whole chain of damage. Rather than helping your skin, keeping those products around will only make matters worse.

How do you know if a skincare product has expired? Most will have a PAO symbol somewhere on their packaging. This will be accompanied by a number. This signifies how many months the product is good for after it has been opened. If you can’t remember when you opened a product but you know that it has been sitting around on your shelf for a year or so, there’s a good chance that it’s coming to the end of its shelf life. Likewise, if one of your products has changed color or developed a strange smell, it’s definitely time to throw it out!
