4 Trends to Consider for Your Spring 2022 Skin Care Routine
Spring is known for cleansing and awakening, and it is also a prelude to the busiest wedding season of the year. Much like fashion, spring also brings a needed refresh to our skin care routine. In the winter, we focus on preventing moisture loss by incorporating skin barriers but the spring brings us an opportunity to "shed" our skin imperfections and start working on that that summer glow.
We've spoken to skin care experts across the nation to understand which trends to look out for - and which to trust.
1. Skin Brightening Serums + Treatments
For addressing hyperpigmentation, she uses Frax 1940. It is a non-ablative laser, which speeds up recovery as it does not break the skin. Depending on the severity of hyperpigmentation, she may also combine it with microneedling and a photo facial to complete the look.
But keeping your skin even-toned and free of dark spots requires at home care as well. Using a plant-derived face brightening serum with retinoids at night will help you lighten hyperpigmentation and prevent dark spots from reappearing.
2. Mineral Sunscreen with Blue Light Protection
3. 15-step routines are out. "Skinimalism" is in.

It contains 15% Vitamin C to detox skin cells and stave off signs of aging such as wrinkles, Niacinamide (B3) to nourish skin, CBD to reduce inflammation, mineral sunscreen to protect against UV damage and blueberry seed oil for blue light protection.
