Spring has sprung, well, kinda, and with spring comes warmer winds, sunnier days, allergies... It is also a great time to reassess your skincare regime and give your skin what it needs to cope with the changing weather. Here are 5 springtime skincare tips from us to you.
1.A great way to start each new season is with a facial and a skin assessment from a trained professional, the facial will reset your skin, making the transition to warmer weather a smooth one. It also gives the therapist a chance to evaluate your skin and recommend and create a skincare routine that meets your skins individual needs. 2.Exfoliate. The dry cold of winter can be really harsh on skin; it can leave you feeling like a butterfly trying to shed its cocoon, except the cocoon is actually just dry skin. We recommend Allmedic Skin Repair – it contains AHA’s and BHA’s which act like a Pac-man, eating away all of winters dryness. 3.Make way for bright springtime lipstick by sorting out those chapped lips – we recommend pure lanolin (traditionally used by breastfeeding mothers), nothing works better – trust us. You can pick up a tube at your local supermarket or chemist. 4.Reassess your moisturiser – with spring normally comes oilier skin, it is the perfect opportunity to switch to a moisturiser that balances this increased oil flow, nourishes and gives your skin the active ingredients it needs to be happy, healthy skin. We recommend coming in and seeing us for a skin assessment and product consultation. 5.Ideally we should be using the same amount of sunscreen year round, that said, most people tend to fall off the bandwagon during the winter months, springtime is the crucial stage to get back on track. We recommend Anthelios Tinted BB Cream SPF50+, which gives you a lovely glow, is comfortable, non-greasy and light on skin, while still providing the highest UV protection available in Australia.
Bonus tip: enjoy yourself! Shed those winter layers, enjoy the longer, warmer days and remember how beautiful you are.
