Spring is a time when people feel the need to make changes, slip out of the ‘hibernation’ frame of mind and mirror nature’s cycle of starting anew. It’s a great time for switching up your skincare routine too, so we thought we’d take a look at some of the changes that you should be making now that springtime is FINALLY upon us!
Many people find that they need a much richer moisturiser to help them to deal with the cold and central heating drying their skin out in winter. This means that once spring rolls around, switching to a lighter moisturiser is key. Opt for something like Dermalogica Hydrating Lotion which is a lightweight formula, designed to give skin a wash of moisture without oversaturating it.
Obviously we advocate using sun protection all year round, but now that the sun has got it’s hat on, you’ll want to up the ante with a stronger SPF. Elemis Liquid Layer SPF30 is a broad-spectrum sun screen which provides water-resistant defence against sun damage and premature skin ageing, allowing you to enjoy the weather without having to worry about damage to your skin.
It’s a fact that even those of us with a Normal skin type can become a shiny gal when the sun comes out, so you’ll want to use a product which can help to mop up excess sebum and rebalance the skin. Decleor Ylang Cananga Facial Oil Serum is designed to reduce sebum excess, tighten pores, and help reduce the appearance of blemishes – perfect for keeping your skin in check all summer long!
It’s a fact that prolonged sun exposure can cause hyperpigmentation and areas of uneven skin tone, which can look unsightly. Attacking hyperpigmentation before it gets too noticeable is really important, especially with the days getting longer and hotter, so using a reparative product like Jan Marini Luminate Face Mask is essential. It contains lightening agents which will progressively reduce the appearance of spots and discolouration and leaves skin immediately brighter skin from first use.
The sun can be just as hard on your hair as it is on your skin, leaving your locks feeling more like straw, which is why remembering to nourish your hair is so important. Decleor Aroma Nutrition Satin Softening Dry Oil is designed to be used on both our skin and your hair and helps to replenish those essential oils which get stripped away by the sun. It contains frankincense essential oil, camellia, rose and sweet almond oils, so your hair will smell as good as it looks!
