Spring Essentials: Transition Your Skincare Routine
Posted on 11 October 2017
As the days grow longer, warmer and the flowers start to bloom, you’ll know that the picnic and party season is just around the corner. Not only do you need to start thinking about a spring clean and a wardrobe overhaul, it’s also essential to switch out your beauty cabinet in the lead up to summer to attain and maintain fresh and fabulous skin.
Shake off the symbolic layers of winter with these spring skin switch out tips:
Switch to a daily exfoliating cleanser
The harsh winter weather can wreak havoc on your skin cell turnover; causing inflammation, dryness and that dreaded dull skin tone that we all want to avoid year round.
To banish the build-up of dead skin cells leading into spring, it’s important to find a rejuvenating and refreshing cleanser that will remove dead skin cells gently from the surface of the skin to promote a brighter looking complexion.
Try our Super Fruit Exfoliating Wash-Off Cleanser with Blueberries, Grape Skin and Acai. Containing natural super fruit-derived AHAs, this invigorating daily cleanser encourages cell turnover to reveal smoother skin and is gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin types. For deeper exfoliation, try leaving this cleanser on for 90 seconds and then washing it off!
Use a lighter moisturiser
As the weather starts to heat up your skin can become sweaty and oily making it more prone to clogged pores and blemishes.
Avoid slathering on thick creams with harsh synthetic ingredients and mineral oils this spring and instead opt for a natural, plant-derived hydrator with a thinner consistency to give your skin the chance to breathe.
Our Balance & Replenish Light Moisturiser with Calendula, Red Mandarin and Pumpkin is a light and luxurious moisturiser containing a mix of vitamin and mineral rich organic ingredients that help to hydrate, plump and protect the skin. This sheer super-moisturiser is also great to use as a base for your mineral makeup and suitable for oily, combination to normal skin type.
Brighten up with Vitamin C
Achieve a natural glow this season by introducing a brightening serum with Vitamin C into your routine to reduce pigmentation and stimulate collagen and elastin production.
Vitamin C is a super antioxidant that has the ability to accelerate the skin’s healing processes and can also help protect your skin from UV rays, pollution and free radicals, making it a must-have to help combat stressed, spotty and sun-damaged spring skin.
To achieve glowing skin this season I recommend Scout Cosmetics Vitamin C Brightening serum with Kakadu Plum, Turmeric and Rosehip. This potent and restorative Superfood brightening serum combines multifunctional actives, essential fatty acids and antioxidants with key ingredient Vitamin C to help improve skin tone and texture.
Reverse the damage of winter, reinvigorate your skincare regime and support your skin’s ability to repair itself by following these three simple steps this season.
