We couldn’t be happier that the days are slowly creeping towards warmer, brighter days! With the season of renewal soon upon us, now is the ideal time to renew your skin and treat it to a detox of sorts in order to prepare it for the new season.
What worked for your skin during the colder months may not work as well now when your skin starts to adjust to different temperatures.
In this article we’ll share six of our top spring skin care tips to get your skin prepped and ready so you can rock radiant, healthy skin all season long.
Exfoliate the old layers away
Exfoliation is our favorite way to slough away old skin layers and reveal radiant, new and vibrant skin just waiting beneath the surface!
Exfoliation should be done at least two to three times a week, but once is fine if you have very sensitive skin.
Stick to gentle, organic exfoliants that will provide effective results without stripping your skin or putting it at risk for irritation.
Switch up your moisturizer
Rich, thick moisturizer formulas are ideal when bone-chilling temperatures are present and there’s almost no humidity in the air, but as the temperatures start to heat up you can make the switch from super-rich oils and moisturizers and instead, opt for lighter, faster absorbing formulas. You still want that deep dose of moisture to boost collagen and keep your skin youthful, but without the heaviness your skin may have required up until now.
When looking for a new daily moisturizer, be sure to look for one made with natural and organic ingredients and avoid synthetics, fillers, and fragrances.
Try detox water
We all know that drinking enough water is essential for healthy skin that stays plump, hydrated and clear, but we admit that sometimes it can get a little boring…
Why not spruce up your water by adding some fresh lemon juice, cucumber slices and a handful of fresh mint for delicious water that will provide a brightening boost of Vitamin C, as well as flush toxins from your system that may have manifested as blemishes. This is a great way to provide your body and your skin with a gentle, daily detox.
Boost collagen with facial massage
During the cooler months, your skin may have suffered from poor circulation due to plummeting temperatures, so why not give it a boost by massaging it to increase circulation and in turn, boost your collagen levels.
By gentle massaging your skin in slow, circular and upward motions you also ensure better absorption of your skin care products.
Add a Vitamin C serum into your routine
Vitamin C is our favorite antioxidant vitamin and nothing brightens quite like it!
Treat your skin to a brightening boost by adding an organic Vitamin C serum into your routine! Use your fingertips to gently pat into your skin and always follow up with a good sunscreen if you’re heading outdoors.
Don’t forget your hands
Your hands deserve just as much love as the rest of your skin, so say goodbye to conventional hand creams that are formulated with harsh, drying ingredients and instead, opt for an all natural hand cream that contains silky oils and rich butters to slather your hands in deep nourishment, without any nasty toxins.
We hope these tips help you to step into the new season with confidence!
