Six Signs That It's Time for a New Spring Skincare Routine
A perfect skincare routine can seem nearly impossible when you’ve spent years testing new products, keeping up with the latest trends, and still can’t seem to get the results you’ve been craving. The truth is, even if you’re using all the right products for your skin concerns, they still might not be working for you.
There are a lot of factors that play into your skincare routine, your age, the climate you live in, hormonal changes, and so much more. So what does that mean?
One perfect skincare routine may no longer be perfect for you because you’re constantly changing too. Here are six signs that it’s time for a new spring skincare routine.
1. You're Not Seeing Results
It does take time to see results from your skincare products, but if you are consistently using your products for six to 12 weeks and are not seeing results then it’s time to kick that product to the curb. The amount your skin will improve with a product will differ from person to person, but there should be some improvement with the product starting at about six weeks otherwise you are just wasting your time and money.
2. You've Used The Same Product For Years
Although it is great to have a love affair with a skincare product that has lasted longer than any of your relationships, it’s probably time to try something new. With your skin regularly changing throughout your life and constant advancements in the skincare community, there is a good chance that the product you’re using isn’t giving you all your skin needs now.
Oftentimes we don’t realize this until we use a new product and start seeing new results and improvement in our skin. Out with the old and in with the new as warmer weather rolls in, it’s time for a new spring skincare routine.
3. You Have Skincare Goals & Concerns
You might start noticing your skin is feeling greasier than usual or you want more of a glow. Whatever your new goals or concerns may be, it may be a great time to try something new. Your skin is going to go through new phases with each stage of life.
Remember to only try one new product at a time while you step into your new spring skincare routine, otherwise it will be hard to see which product is working for you and which one is not. Also if you experience irritation, burning, dryness, or flaking, stop using the product immediately as that is your skin telling you the product is not suitable for your skin type.

4. You Feel Like You're Using Too Many Products
With the media showing these 10 to 20 even sometimes 30 step skincare routines, you may feel like you have to use tons of products in your routine. You bought all the serums, masks, eye creams, toners, and moisturizers, but you’re not seeing results. The fact is that you don’t need it all so embrace the “less is more” concept as you begin your new spring skincare routine.
A simple routine is oftentimes all you need and putting too much on your face could be causing more harm than good. Not only that, but it can be hard to stay consistent with your skin routine every night when your entire routine lasts longer than the Netflix show you watch before bed. Multifunctional products like the Revitalize 7 in 1 Power Serum delivers the ingredients you need in a simple and efficient format by serving multipurposes in one step
5. You're Bored and Don't Enjoy Your Routine
No one wants to do something they hate or find boring every single night. It is important to make your skin routine fun, comfortable, and/or relaxing, so that you actually enjoy and stick to your routine.
There are a vast variety of products and tools out there to fall in love with to make your skincare routine satisfying. For us, we enjoy putting on our Radiant Rose Peptide Firming Mask and lounging around in our robes feeling like a modern day Cleopatra.
6. Your Skin is Dry or Oily
A good skincare routine can make your face feel fresh and new, but if you are suffering from skin that is either dry or oily then you are not using the right products for your skin. Both of these are signs that your products are not working for your skin type and you need different products. It is important to know your skin type in order to choose the right products to help your dry or oily skin.
