The Ultimate Guide To Perfect Skin

Illustrated by Ly Ngo.
As we (finally) say goodbye to what’s been a cold, hard winter, our attention isn’t just on spring flowers and the promise of a much cuter wardrobe. No, we’re likely thinking about how to adapt our skin-care routine as the seasons change.
And, unless you're one of the lucky ones whose skin doesn't freak out with the shift in weather (read: new breakouts, inflammation, and an uptick in oil production), you're probably wondering what kinds of changes you need to make. The truth is, most of us will need to switch things up thanks to the seasonal quirks that cause our skin to act up. In order to make this easier, I’ve compiled a list of the latest and greatest new products for each skin type. Armed with this info, you’ll be ready to face the warmer weather — all without breaking the bank (or a sweat)!
Bryan Barron, beauty expert and co-author of Don't Go to the Cosmetics Counter Without Me, spends his days penning thousands of research-based cosmetics reviews as the head of the Beautypedia.com research team. And, lucky for us, he's letting R29 pick his brain about all things pretty.
