Spring is synonymous with awakening, new beginnings and an influx of energy. Even your skin needs special care after the long winter months to keep it healthy, fresh and beautiful. Why is hydration so important in spring? What does peeling help you with and how to make it at home? How does what you eat affect your skin? How can you supplement collagen or support its production? You will find out in our article today.

The basis is hydration

In winter, we expose the skin to cold, wind and dry air, which leads to it being dried out and irritated. With the arrival of spring, it is therefore necessary to intensively hydrate the skin. Hydration supports the regeneration of skin cells, helps preserve the youthful appearance of the skin, increases its elasticity and resistance to pollution, allergens and microorganisms .

Ensure adequate fluid intake. Water, green or unsweetened herbal tea is ideal .

Hydration should be supplemented with vitamins and nutrients , so a refreshing collagen drink with hyaluronic acid with mint and lemon flavor, which contains vitamin C and fiber from chicory root, will definitely come in handy in the spring months. Collagen is credited with a positive effect on the reduction and softening of wrinkles , improvement and restoration of skin elasticity and support of vitality. Hyaluronic acid has the ability to bind water and keep it in the cell spaces, leaving the skin hydrated.

Don't forget to moisturize your skin from the outside as well. In the spring, replace heavier, richer creams with lighter moisturizers . Use the cream twice a day, morning and evening. You can also include skin serums or face masks in your skin care .

Revitalize the skin with peeling

Spring peeling will revive your skin and prepare it for the summer months when it will be exposed to the sun, chlorinated water or sea salt. Peeling , sometimes also referred to as exfoliation , is the process of removing dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. After peeling, the skin gets blood and becomes brighter. We distinguish between two basic types of peeling:

  • Mechanical peeling uses abrasive particles or tools that "sand" the skin to remove dead skin cells. These include scrubs with microgranules , skin brushes and exfoliating gloves.
  • Chemical peeling , during which they use different types of acids (e.g. AHA, BHA, TCA) to chemically dissolve the bonds between dead cells, allowing them to be easily removed. Chemical peels can be mild to moderate in strength and are effective for deeper pore cleansing, removing pigment spots, minimizing wrinkles, and improving overall skin texture.

After peeling, the skin is more sensitive to UV radiation , and since the sun is not as intense in the spring as in the summer, the spring months are perfect for this procedure.

On the market you can find a whole range of different products for peeling the face and the whole body, there are also specialized clinics where professionals will give you a chemical peel. You can also make a homemade body scrub from commonly available ingredients according to our recipe.
