The days are getting longer and the trees and flowers are starting to bloom. Just as your wardrobe changes for the springtime weather, so should your skincare routine! Changes don’t need to be huge to have a powerful impact on your skin. The experts at ClarityMD have mapped it out for you so you can get out and glow!
1 – Exfoliate
It’s no surprise that winter can really do a number on your skin. The cold, windy conditions can suck the moisture right out, taking your inner glow with it. Spring is the perfect time to step up your exfoliation game to reveal a fresh glow just waiting to shine through! ClarityMD Aesthetician Charisse Alexander absolutely swears by ZO Skin Health Exfoliation Accelerator to speed up the exfoliation process. “I love Exfoliation Accelerator because of the highly concentrated blend of glycolic and lactic acid complex. It not only helps remove dead skin cells, but it soothes skin with an aloe, green tea and chamomile blend that packs a gentle yet powerful punch!”, Charisse said. Don’t just stop at your face! Spring is the perfect season to get out an all-over body scrub to get you warm-weather ready from head to toe!
2 – Take Your Sunscreen to the Max
Sunscreen is essential no matter what the season. Even on those cold, drab days, your skin is still susceptible to sun damage. Here’s the thing though. When the sun starts to shine and the days start warming up, most of us naturally want to be out in the sunshine more. Longer exposure times and more skin susceptible to the sun’s damaging rays means now is the time to kick up your sunscreen usage! ClarityMD Aesthetician Megan DeCamp tells her patients that proper sunscreen use is the number one way to keep your skin smooth and youthful. “It’s important to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30,” Megan said. “Just as you reapply to your body, it’s important to reapply to your face every two hours,” she added. Megan loves Intellishade Original by Revision Skincare. This light, tinted broad-spectrum SPF 45 moisturizer that automatically color matches to your skin is formulated to correct, protect, conceal, brighten and hydrate skin.
3 – Lighten Up, Already!
During the winter months, your skin may have demanded a thick, soothing moisturizer to combat the dry conditions. Now that it’s warming up, our old friend humidity will soon make an appearance meaning your skin craves a lighter dose of moisture to prevent a greasy feel and avoid breakouts. Trio Rebalancing Moisture Treatment by Skin Better Science is the go-to moisturizer for ClarityMD Aesthetician Nicole Ellison. “This powerhouse product brings serious hydration to the skin without the weight of a thick cream. Not to mention, the anti-aging properties fight fine lines and wrinkles, leaving your skin glowing and supple,” Nicole said.
4 – Turn Up the Power
While spring is a good time to lighten up the moisturizer, it’s also the perfect season to step up your age-defying power with a high-quality serum.
Just ask ClarityMD owner, Dr. Jodie Harper. “Serums quickly absorb into your skin right after your cleanser, so the properties have a stronger effect on your skin,” Dr. Harper said. “A good pharmaceutical-grade product can brighten, hydrate and fight signs of aging,” she added.
Dr. Harper loves D·E·J Daily Boosting Serum by Revision Skincare. It’s clinically proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and instantly plump the skin.

It’s not just what you put ON your body but also what you put IN it that matters!
