SPRING SKINCARE ROUTINE
Sweep, sweep, sweep: spring is upon us and that means tidying our homes and setting things in order. Why not take this opportunity to tidying up your skincare routine, too?
As the seasons change, so does your skin. Here’s a checklist of things you can do to get your skin ready for spring:
Understand Your Skin Type
Would you like to adapt your skincare routine to the changing season but aren’t sure what skin type you have? Use our skin diagnosis tool and we’ll be happy to email you our assessment. All you have to do is answer a few easy questions.
Exfoliating your skin helps reduce the buildup of dead cells. Although skin exfoliation should be practiced throughout the year, spring is the most important season to practice this habit. Well-exfoliated skin equals a radiant complexion! Whether you use gentle exfoliation or clay masks, once per month is usually enough or every 15 days for oily / combination skin. Never exfoliate weekly. It’s too rough on skin.
Change Your Daily Skincare Routine
If the arrival of good weather changes the condition of your skin, it’s time to change your daily skincare routine. If you have combination skin and use a nourishing serum during the winter (such as Serum Jasper for dry skin) to protect against wind and cold, consider switching to the Iris Serum (for combination skin) for the change of weather. If you’re uncertain, simply contact us, we’ll be happy to help you: email@example.com
The important thing is to opt for lighter textures and ingredients that will bring radiance to your complexion after a harsh winter.
Ingredients to look out for
This spring, make it your goal to choose anti-aging and lightening ingredients such as sea buckthorn oil, borage oil, ho wood oil and all vegetable oils naturally containing vitamins A and C.
Add Sunscreen to Your Skincare Routine
Spring gives us a hint of summer to come. The weather is warming and nature is blooming and this means spending more time outside exposing our skin to the sun. Oxidative stress from the sun's rays is the main cause of skin aging. Protect yourself well to prevent dark spots or more serious skin conditions like melanoma.
Adapt Your Makeup
Since the condition of your skin is likely to change during the shift into spring, it’s best to adapt your makeup as well. Choose lighter textures and formulas like mineral makeup, that better control sebum (your skin’s natural oil).
Wishing you a lovely, sunny spring!
