Springtime is here, which also means the sun is near! Spring is a time when flowers begin to bloom, the sun begins to shine and days get longer. After months of harsh weather –cold nights, raining days and breezy afternoons –, our skin needs to be revitalised and you need to switch up your skin care routine! We’ve put together some guidelines to help you switch it up this spring!
- MOISTURISE: SHOULD I BE APPLYING A MOISTURISER?
After a long and drying winter, you need to rebuild your skin and replenish the moisture that was lost. This is best done using a gentle body cream for your whole body, try our Conditioning Body Cream, which is proven to be excellent to draw in moisture. You also want to make sure your face is completely moisturised as you’re being exposed to sunlight. Along with an SPF, we’d recommend using our Moisturising Oil, formulated with 100% natural ingredients, essential oils, fatty acids and skin tightening peptides, as it’s the perfect all-rounder oil.
- EXFOLIATE: WHY SHOULD I EXFOLIATE MY SKIN?
Although we’ve now officially waved goodbye to winter, the cold air can still wreak havoc on your skin, leaving it quite dull, blemished and chapped. Regularly exfoliating your body is one of the simplest – yet best – ways to ensure you’re silky smooth all year round! Exfoliation removes dead skin cells and tackles any oil residue that causes your pores to clog. We’d highly recommend our Award-Winning Conditioning Body Scrub, formulated with a combination of multi-grain natural salt, in addition to skin-loving oils and sugar with naturally occurring alpha hydroxy acids to draw in moisture, smooth away imperfections and reveal the healthy, youthful and smooth skin beneath. As a result, look your best with flawless, glowing skin this Spring!
- CLEANSE: WHY SHOULD YOU CLEANSE YOUR SKIN?
Cleansing should be something you do twice a day, think of it like brushing your teeth. If you’re using oil-based products at night, a cleanse in the morning is important as you want to wash away whatever those products have brought to the skin’s surface overnight. Every day, we’re exposed to pollutants, allergens and irritants from the outside environment that need to be washed away. Find a cleanser that’s right for you, in the warmer weather, you’ll need something that’s a little lighter (less moisturising).
- SUNSCREEN: WHY SHOULD YOU WEAR SUNSCREEN?
Everyone needs sunscreen. It’s important to wear it every day, all year-round, especially in the spring/summer time as the sun is more intense. Either during spring, summer, autumn or winter, protecting your skin from harsh rays of sunlight is essential. Here are some benefits from using sunscreen:
- Shields your skin from harmful UV rays
- Prevents premature ageing
- Lowers skin cancer risks
- Lowers blotches on your face
- Prevents sunburns
- Enhances health on skin
Don’t forget that the change in weather will naturally have an effect on your skin and ensuring that you’ve got a thorough regime that you’ll follow is very important.
