With spring uponus and the warmer weather on its way, it’s a great time to take a look at yourskincare routine to make sure that you have all the essential tips and tricksfor radiant skin this season. Seasonalchanges cause variations in the natural moisture level of the skin, so it’simportant to alter your skincare routine accordingly!
Getyour spring glow with some of the Beauty Academy’s top tips:
Skinexfoliation should be done throughout the year, but spring is a great time toreally focus in on your exfoliating routine. The low humidity of winter weathercan leave the skin flaky and excessively dry, so gently exfoliating away those deadskin cells will give your skin a fresh start for spring. The higher humidity ofthe warmer months can cause oilier skin, which can lead to more frequentbreakouts, so exfoliating is really important at this time of year because byremoving dead skin cells, it will keep your skin clean, and allow your productsto penetrate the skin better to keep it conditioned and smooth. Aim to gentlyexfoliate once a week for best results.
Rich moisturising creams canbe the perfect skin antidote to dry winter weather, but they can be too muchfor the warmer spring months. In the winter,the cold weather tends to leave our skin drier and flakier – hence the need forricher moisturiser. But in the springtime, our skin begins to adjust to thewarmer weather and so to help balance the skins naturally changing moisture levels,it’s best to switch to a lighter moisturising cream or lotion so as not tooverpower the skin. It’s really important to moisturise regularly in order keepyour skin smooth and glowing. If you find your skin is very oily during thespring, opt for an oil-free formula.
Bodybrushing will really help to give your skin a much needed dose ofrevitalisation after a long winter! We don’t always pay as much attention toour bodies during the winter months because we’re hidden under layers of warmclothing, so the onset of spring means a little spruce up is often in need.Body brushing is a great way of getting your skin back on form, it can help stimulatecirculation (which in turn can help combat cellulite), as well as reducing cloggedpores and ingrown hairs. Spring is also a great time of year to head in for amassage if you feel your body is in need of some TLC.
Wearingan SPF every day is really important, it’s advised as something to wear allyear round, but all the more important in the spring and summer months whenwe’re exposed to more sun and UV rays. Protecting your skin from UV rays isreally important because these rays can lead to pigmentation and prematureageing. Your body needs protection too – it’s wrapped up in thick layers ofclothing during the winter, but in the spring & summer shorts and t-shirtsmean it’s just as important to protect your body as it is your face.
Lotsof us crave a sun-kissed glow for the warmer months, but in the spring, we’vestill got to sensibly work up to full on tan – we still mustn’t look too OTT.It’s also important to stay safe in the sun, so for glowing colour without thenegative effects of a long day under the sun’s rays, opt for a self-tanner orhead into the salon for a spray tan.
