Happy Spring! I was recently asked by my favorite Denver skin care line, Intelligent Elixirs, to provide some insight on spring skin care. Having not covered this on the blog before, I was excited to compile my favorite tips and tricks. Read on for the original post!

Spring is here which means flowers, warmer temps, sundresses & sandals AND freshening up your skin care regimen. We checked in with Jenny Leazer-Ragolia LE, skincare guru and owner of i heart skin Denver for some expert tips on transitioning your routine for Spring.
"Spring is the perfect time to shed layers of excess dead skin, which can accumulate during dry winter months and cause our complexion to look dull. You can do this at home with a physical scrub (I love the Citrus Facial Scrub from Intelligent Elixirs!) Or treat yourself to a brightening facial with enzyme exfoliation and deep hydration, to get your glow back."
Step up the SPF
"If you've been slacking on your sun protection during shorter winter days, now is the time to get back in the habit! My biggest tip when it comes to sun care is to find a product you love. Otherwise you won't use it. SPF is one of the most important steps in any skin care routine and should be worn year round. You'll also want to re-apply throughout the day to protect your skin against UV damage, premature aging and skin cancer."
Do a Little Spring Cleaning
"I love spring as a time to do a little de-cluttering of my skin care products. I like to go through everything that's on my shelves and toss anything that's expired, has problematic ingredients or anything that just isn't work for my skin. It's a great opportunity to check in with what is or isn't working and reconnect with my skin care routine."
Keeping your routine in step with the seasons is a great way to keep your skin both happy and healthy.
