The leaves are a changin’, the flowers are a bloomin’ and spring is, practically, in the air. But with all of these lovely weather changes comes some not-so-lovely skin changes. And if your skin is taking these weather changes in a harsh way–meaning breakouts and blackheads–we have a few solutions for you. Check out our favorite ways to transition our skin from winter to spring without the wrath of a full-on breakout.
Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser
Using natural charcoal, this cleanser gets deep into your pores and cleans them out–real good. Use this daily and start to notice tighter, cleaner pores and clearer skin. The slight cooling tingle it gives off is a nice bonus. Available at all drugstores, $6.
Murad Oil-Control Mattifier SPF 15
If you tend to experience more oil production, especially in the warmer months, try out this oil control mattifier moisturizer. It reduces oil production and shine for up to eight hours and has SPF 15 to protect you from sun’s harmful rays. It also won’t clog your pores making it perfect for those who tend to break out easily. Available at Sephora, $40.
Mario Badescu Drying Lotion
For those pesky blackheads, white heads or zits that do pop up during this weather transition, treat them with a spot of this drying lotion before bed. You’ll notice a reduction or disappearance overnight. It’s also great for ingrown hairs and bug bites! Available at Mario Badescu or where ever Mario Badescu products are sold, $17.
Origins Retexturizing Mask With Rose Clay
Looking for a brighter complexion? Maybe tighter pores? More even skin texture? This mask featuring rose clay is a lifesaver. It smooths skin, refines pores and gives you a glowing complexion all around. Available at Sephora, $26.
