Transitioning from winter to spring


As the colder winter months lead into the warmer spring months, some may not realize that the moisturizers in their daily regimens might need to transition along with the seasons. While a heavier moisturizer may still be necessary for those with dry, mature or sensitive skin concerns, others can swap out what they have been using for lighter options as the thermometer begins to rise. PCA SKIN’s line of hydrators has something for your unique skin no matter how much moisture you need.

Oily skin


It’s a common myth that oily and breakout-prone individuals don’t need to use a moisturizer on a daily basis. However all skin types require hydration in order to function properly. When skin becomes dehydrated, the glands in the skin that create oil may overcompensate, making the issue worse. Light, calming broad spectrum sunscreen moisturizers like Weightless Protection Broad Spectrum SPF 45 are the best choice for the day, while a light hydrator like Clearskin or Hyaluronic Acid Boosting Serum is best for nighttime use.


Dry skin

Most people with dry skin will typically feel some relief as the weather gets warmer and humidity levels rise. Daily use of broad spectrum sun protection is always important and options like Hydrator Plus Broad Spectrum SPF 30 will maintain hydration and protect the skin from UV rays during the day. Before bed, those who have been using Silkcoat® Balm or Collagen Hydrator during the winter may appreciate the lighter Après Peel® Hydrating Balm at this point in the year.


Normal skin

Skin types that fall in the middle of the oily-dry skin spectrum should consider Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ for daytime use. ReBalance is the perfect evening moisturizer, though Clearskin is also an option if an even lighter option is desired.


If you’re unsure about your skin type and which broad spectrum sunscreen or evening moisturizers are right for you, no matter the time of year, schedule a consultation with a PCA SKIN® Certified Professional. Use the PCA SKIN® Professional locator tool to find someone in your area.
