5 Tips for Transitioning Your Skincare Routine from Winter to Spring

As the snow melts away and the first buds of spring start to bloom, it's not just your wardrobe that needs a seasonal refresh – your skincare routine does too. Transitioning from winter to spring can be a delicate time for your skin. The changes in humidity, temperature, and even the increased presence of allergens like pollen can all have a significant impact. Here are five essential tips to seamlessly adapt your skincare from the cold, harsh winter to the gentle warmth of spring.

1. Lighten Up Your Moisturizer


Thick, heavy creams are indispensable for combating the dry, frigid air of winter.


As the air becomes warmer and more humid, your skin will naturally retain more moisture. Switch to a lighter moisturizer to prevent clogging your pores while still providing necessary hydration. Our top pick for spring is the Janssen Neuro Skin Balm, a low-irritant, hydrating moisturizer perfect for skin prone to neurodermatitis, packed with beneficial oils and hyaluronic acid to keep your skin hydrated without feeling heavy.

2. Incorporate a Gentle Cleanser


The increase in humidity can cause your skin to produce more sebum, leading to potential breakouts and clogged pores.


Opt for a gentle, pH-neutral cleanser like the Janssen Soft Cleansing Mousse. It's specially formulated for sensitive skin, ensuring your skin stays clean without stripping away essential moisture. The allantoin in the formula also provides anti-inflammatory benefits, ideal for soothing skin as it adjusts to the new season.

3. Don’t Skip the Toner


Spring can awaken not just the flowers but also skin sensitivities, thanks to the pollen in the air.


A soothing toner can be a game-changer during this transition. The Janssen Soft Soothing Tonic, alcohol-free and packed with calming ingredients like allantoin and hydroxyacetophenone, helps remove residual dirt particles while soothing the skin and reducing redness. It's the perfect finish to your cleansing routine, preparing your skin for better absorption of your moisturizer.

4. Exfoliate, But Don’t Overdo It


Dead skin cells can accumulate over the winter, leading to dull complexions.


Gently exfoliating your skin can help reveal a brighter, smoother surface. However, be careful not to over-exfoliate, as this can strip your skin of essential oils, especially during a season when it’s adjusting to a new climate. Once or twice a week is sufficient.

5. Update Your Sun Protection


With longer days and more time spent outdoors, your skin will be exposed to more UV radiation.


Ensure your spring skincare routine includes a strong SPF to protect against UVA and UVB rays. Even on cloudy days, UV rays can penetrate through and cause damage. Consider a sunscreen that also offers hydration, to keep your skin protected and moisturized throughout the day.

Why It's Important to Transition Your Skincare from Winter to Spring

Transitioning your skincare routine from winter to spring doesn’t have to be a daunting task. By making a few simple adjustments, such as switching to a lighter moisturizer, using a gentle cleanser and toner, being mindful of exfoliation, and updating your sun protection, you can help your skin adapt to the changing season. Embrace the spring with open arms and glowing skin!
