The season of decluttering is upon us and nothing needs a clear out like your skincare routine. In the same way that you would spring clean your wardrobe, you need to invest in editing your beauty shelf. As the weather changes, so do your skin’s needs and ensuring you re-work your products is key.
Here’s our top tips on embracing the new season with a revived glow!
In the depths of winter we love a rich cream cleanser but, for the warmer seasons, it’s time to switch your heavy products for a lighter foam or gel formula. Avoid products that will sit in the skin and swap for options that will clean without clogging! We love the Glow Recipe Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser. A bouncy formula that cleanses deeply leaving your skin feeling refreshed and moisturised in one step without weighing it down. Blueberry extract and gentle alpha hydroxy acids exfoliate, clarify, and strengthen cells to deliver soft, dewy and beautiful skin.
Brighten Your Beauty
Whilst the weather may be heating up that doesn’t mean you can forget moisturiser altogether. Rather than focusing on a rich product opt for a moisturiser with a lower molecular weight and brightening properties that will bring out that spring glow. The Elemis Superfood Glow Priming Moisturiser is one of our favourites. A 3-in-1 multitasker that can be used as a daily moisturiser, a hydrating makeup primer or as a highlighter, it’s infused with light-reflecting micro-minerals that impart a fresh, dewy glow, whilst adding essential moisture to plump and cushion.
Reach For The Retinol
Now retinol is often noted as a winter skin ritual due to it making your skin more sensitive to UV damage. However, it’s also the perfect product for a spring fling if you use it in the right way during the warmer months. Opt to use your retinol at night before bed and focus on a cream formula to nourish and hydrate in one move. We adore Drunk Elephant’s A-Passioni Retinol Cream. Retinol reimagined, this cream delivers a clean, cutting-edge formula that combines 1.0% vegan retinol with nourishing, superfood-rich ingredients to dramatically diminish the appearance of fine lines, deep wrinkles and sun damage, revealing a vibrant, younger-looking complexion.
Protect & Perfect
We believe you should wear sunscreen every day. However, as the sun makes more of an appearance it’s vital you protect your face. An SPF is a given, but we suggest revamping your cabinet to include a lightweight formula brimming with antioxidants that will tone, revive and protect in one smooth move. We recommend ‘Dew The Most’ by Mele which is effortlessly sheer (meaning it won’t clog your pores’ and contains vitamin E and niacinamide to enhance your skins texture.
Oil Be Gone
As the warmer weather approaches, our skin can turn from dry to oily in an instant! Combat unwelcome shine by opting for a clay mask twice a week. It will cleanse, purify and eliminate oil to leave your skin glowing without grease. Try the Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask and watch your skin evolve. Pink clay is a magnet for toxins that deeply cleanses the skin. It purifies and tightens pores before your eyes, clearing congestion and battling breakouts.
Now you know what products you need to embrace the new season in style, it’s time to spring clean your beauty regime and get ready to shine.
