Give your skincare a Spring Shakeup!

Give your skincare a Spring Shakeup!

Yes – it’s happening! We’re out of the cold, winter months, the central heating is going off and the sun is finally making regular appearances! Spring is here and we’re ready!

As well as shelving those winter clothes, now is the perfect time to refresh our skincare routine, to make some changes that will see us through to summer and keep it looking and feeling its best!

Why change up your skincare from season to season?

Central heating, winter winds and the general cold can leave your skin feeling dull and dry and you may need to use heavier, richer products to counteract this.

As the sun starts to come out, it’s time to let your skin breathe a little and you can switch to lighter products. As the weather gets warmer, your body also needs more water as well as your skin, so finding water rich products or humectants can also be perfect to switch to so your skin can feel its best.

It starts with cleansing

You’ve found some cleansers that you love – but maybe you’ve noticed they’re not working as effectively as they did over winter.

In winter we tend to lean towards cleansing balms and creams as they are comforting as well as providing moisture to parched skin: but as the sun comes out, you might find yourself looking for something a little lighter. This could be anything from an oil to a foam… you might find your skin liking these a little more during these warmer months.

Next up are treatments

Anti-oxidant rich treatments are great to use in spring/summer, because they also help to protect your skin from sun damage (they’re not a replacement for SPF though!) and will help your skin to keep glowing and healthy.

Look for treatments including important healing ingredients like hyaluronic acid and vitamin c too as they help to keep the skin healthy, remove any residual winter build up and prevent skin discoloration.

Don’t forget to moisturise

One item we’ll always need, no matter the season or skin type, is an effective moisturiser.

Winter is when heavier moisturisers and face oils are what we reach for more often, to battle the dryness and dehydration winter and central heating causes, but spring and summer is the perfect opportunity to lighten things up.

Look after your body

As the winter woollies head back up to the loft, many of us might be showing a little more skin as the sun comes out… so make sure you’re giving your body as much love as you’ve shown your face.

We love to use a body oil to give us that gorgeous glow, as well as nourishment.
