Spring is no doubt our favourite time of year, with flowers blooming and birds singing- a new season brings a sense of joy (and a good spring clean!). But as we transition into a warmer climate we naturally begin to spend more time outdoors, which means we need to prepare our skin for this change to keep dryness and aging at bay. Here are our top spring skincare tips to help you get the most out of your skin this season.
Protect yourself with SPF
We are advised to apply SPF all year round, although it’s easy to forget when it’s dull and dreary outside. But now is the time to get back on track and make it a priority in your morning routine. Ensure you use both an eco-friendly and natural sunscreen with at least an SPF of 30, that has both UVA and UVB protection- we suggest using a mineral sunscreen. Don't be complacent about your sun protection!
Use Anti-oxidant rich products
Incorporating anti-oxidants into your regime can improve your skins pigmentation, which is vital to avoiding sun-induced damage. Over time the sun can cause a breakdown of collagen and elastin which results in aging skin. Our rejuvenating Anti-Oxidant Brightening Berry Mask is packed full of fruit extracts that are rich in vitamins and minerals- trust us, it smells as good as it sounds! It also has cell regenerative properties and super collagen boosting powers, need we say anymore?!
Soothe your eyes
Spring can be a time that allergy sufferers dread. Puffy, itchy eyes can be unpleasant but our cooling Aloe & Eyebright Eye Gel can help take the sting away. It is gentle on sensitive, inflamed skin and can reduce swelling. Even if you don’t suffer with allergies, this product will help you start your day bright-eyed and ready to go.
*Top Tip- Keep it in the fridge for that extra soothing feeling.
Switch up your face cream
A rich, creamy face cream feels like luxury on your skin during the winter, but as we head towards a warmer climate we would suggest switching it up to something a little more lightweight during the daytime. Try something like our Safflower & Nettle Face Cream which is perfect for spring as it provides the right amount of hydration without clogging pores. It contains Glycerin, Jojoba Oil and Rosehip Extract which all work together to provide a choke-full of goodness.
Sandal ready feet
It goes without saying that we neglect our feet during the winter as they’re hidden in cosy socks and chunky boots that are essentially absorbing any moisture, leaving them cracked and dehydrated. But sandal season is almost upon us and we want to ensure your feet are looking their best so it doesn't feel like the whole world is staring at your dry heels. Our nourishing Melissa & Mallow Foot Balm will have you sandal ready and raring to go!
Exfoliate the winter away
If your skin feels dull and in need of a new lease of life, an exfoliating body scrub is what you need and the best time to do this is now! Show your entire body some love and buff those dead skin cells away to reveal newer cells that will even out skin tone and texture. Our Vanilla Sugar Body Scrub will not only make you feeling revitalized and silky soft, it'll improve circulation and your skin's ability to absorb other products.
