The Regimen: Your 2024 Spring Skincare Routine


Updated: December 7, 2023

Spring has finally sprung! With a rise in temperatures and some much welcomed sunshine, it’s time to prepare your wardrobe - and your vanity - for a new season. As you pack away your winter coats and chunky sweaters, don’t neglect your skincare collection when it comes to putting away what’s no longer helpful this spring. Just as our closet reflects the temperature and conditions outside, so must our skincare routine.

As the weather starts to warm up, your skincare routine must also kick it up a notch when it comes to cleansing, exfoliating and environmental protection. More heat and humidity can increase oil production, leading to clogged pores. And as we happily start to spend more time outside, our skin is exposed to more damaging UVA and UVB rays from the sun. Up your game with your Skincare Routine with Flawless by Melissa Fox.

To avoid congested, sun damaged skin this season, your Spring Skincare Routine should be well stocked with four essentials:

  1. A deep cleanser
  2. A daily exfoliant
  3. An antioxidant serum
  4. A trusted SPF

Here is our Regimen: Must Have Skincare for Spring 2024

Spring Cleaning: Your Cleansing Ritual This Season

As the saying goes, “out with the old, in with the new.” The same can be said for your skin cells! Spring is the time to cleanse away debris and dead skin cells to reveal more radiant, glowing skin. Oil production spikes with warmer weather, so cleansing milk and lotions that soothed your skin during the winter may not be enough to breakthrough oil and sweat at the end of a long spring day.

Instead, opt for a cleansing gel or foam. Oxygenating and exfoliating gel cleansers are your best bet when it comes to adequately cleansing your skin. Look for a cleanser with gentle exfoliating acids like Glycolic and Salicylic Acid to dive deep into pores, breaking up dead skin cells and oil that can block pores and lead to blackheads and congestion.

Goodbye, Dull Skin - Hello, Glow!

During the dry, cold winter months, our skin barrier is more sensitive and can only tolerate exfoliation 2-3 times per week. However, during the spring our natural oils protect the skin, allowing for more frequent exfoliation.

That’s good news for you P50 addicts! Exfoliating toners like Biologique Recherche’s Lotion P50 are the perfect daily exfoliant to rid the skin of that day’s buildup without overdoing it.

Choose a Lotion P50 formulation that best suits your skin type:

LOTION P50 - For normal/combination skin

This multi-faceted cult favorite exfoliates, purifies, and cleanses Skin Instants while also regenerating cells. Heavy in AHA, BHA, & PHAs, as well as cider vinegar, sulfur, and vitamin B3, this “magic in a bottle” reconditions and moisturizes the epidermis’s pH.

LOTION P50W - For sensitive skin

A slightly softer version of the original, this exfoliating lotion contains arnica extract as an active ingredient which is useful in calming the skin. Because of this, Lotion P50W is great for first time lotion P5- users and those with delicate and reactive skin instants.

LOTION P50 PIGM 400 - For Hyperpigmentation

This extension of the P50 lotion line is best for those wishing to reduce pigmentation marks. Made with antioxidant agents such as wasabi extract & vitamin B3 for brightening qualities, this exfoliant is ideal for dull Skin Instants and those who are targeting a pigmented complexion.

LOTION P50V - For mature skin

Enriched with vitamins, this exfoliating lotion is best for skin that is dull or lacking tone. It is beneficial for improving the natural PH balance of the skin. Made with yeast and walnut extract which contain soothing and toning

LOTION P50 1970 - For oily, acne prone skin

The original formulation of Lotion P50 with the inclusion of Phenol, an active compound that is used to penetrate through the layers of skin and deliver the formula deep within the pores. This formula is best for oily, acne-prone skin or those who are acclimated to Lotion P50.

LOTION P50 1970V - For more resistant mature skin

The cult-classic formula with the inclusion of vitamins to suit aging or dryer skin types. 

We recommend having at least two formulations in your collection so you can best treat your skin’s needs on a day-to-day basis.

Antioxidants - The Ingredient You Need This Spring

With more time spent outside enjoying the sun, our skin is exposed to more environmental pollutants that can damage skin cells and cause premature aging.

Antioxidants in skincare help to fight off pollution and prevent DNA damage that can lead to collagen loss, pigmentation and irritation in the skin.

Vitamin C is popular antioxidant - and for good reason! It’s been proven and time and time again to be effective and preventing free radical damage, and even reversing sun damage and pigmentation.

You're Never Fully Dressed Without SPF!

Sun protection is an essential no matter the season, but if you slacked on SPF application during the Winter, don’t make the same mistake this Spring. A sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher should be applied as the last step of your skincare routine every single morning.

A tinted mineral SPF is your best option when it comes to getting full coverage from all types of damaging sun and light rays.
