After months of alternating between hot, dry indoor air and the harsh cold outside, your skin is definitely ready for a shift in seasonal skin care. It is now time to wake our skin up from its winter slumber and give it that healthy looking glow we all crave when the sun finally starts to shine again. I always like to start off the season with a spring clean of my skincare/beauty shelves. I throw out anything that’s old, make sure everything I’m going to use for my spring skincare routines is within easy reach, clean my makeup brushes and add some nice flowers to brighten things up.
Spring is a great time to have a look at your skincare to ensure you are stepping into the new season with everything you need for glowing, radiant skin. Here are my top tips…
This should be done throughout the year but remember areas such as the neck and décolleté have been hidden away under jumpers and scarves for months and now they are going to be on show more so make sure you are exfoliating from hairline to décolleté 1-2 times per week to buff away those dead skin cells and give your skin a fresh start for spring
2. Use an SPF
Use an SPF daily. Studies show that prolonged exposure to UV rays can cause skin cells to deteriorate at a much faster rate. To protect your skin, use a high-quality SPF. It can reduce your susceptibility to sunburn, sunspots, wrinkles, and discolouration.
3. Switch to lighter products
You may find that now the harsh winter weather has passed and you’ve not got the central heating on quite so much that you need to reach for a lighter moisturiser so that your skin doesn’t feel weighed down by the heavier products that were necessary for the cold winter months.
4. Invest in a Mist
Spritzing your skin throughout the day while you’re at work or out shopping will ensure it stays hydrated and fresh. Perfect for indoor workers or those with lack of natural light! Try Elemis Superfood Kefir-Tea Mist. A refreshing 4-in-1 mist hydrates, tones, primes, and sets makeup for a complexion that looks healthy and glowing all day.
