What: Spring Cleaning for Your Skin Care Arsenal

Why: I estimate that over the course of my life, I’ve spent thousands of dollars on my face. I’m not alone –- Americans spent a whopping $50 billion on skin care, cosmetics and toiletries last year, leading us to ask: is it really necessary?

Yes and no, dermatologists say. Too many skin care products can irritate skin, but there’s no denying that technological advancements have improved them. Regardless of how many products you use, the key is to vary your routine between winter and summer. A heavy wool coat and creamy moisturizer for winter is best replaced with a light sweater and equally-weighted face protector for summer.

These nurturing, yet lightweight skin care products are perfect for warm weather and approved by the SheFinds editors:

* Philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser: Simple, freshening and gentle on the skin, while still efficient at removing grime.

* Care by Stella McCartney 5 Benefits Moisturising Fluid: Unbelievably light, but packed with antioxidant oils.

* Vincent Longo Light Canvas Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20: Skip the foundation with this all-in-one makeup, moisturizer and skin protectant.
