With Spring well and truly here, many of us are changing things up – whether that’s bringing summer clothes down from the loft or putting some new plants in the garden, and it’s also a great time to make some strategic swaps in your skincare routine too. Here are a few small changes which made now will see you glowing well into Summer!
It’s a great idea to start using a facial sunscreen, as we’ll all be getting a little more sun with the longer days, irrespective of what the weather is up to. We don’t include sunscreen in our products as you’ve told us that you like to choose your own to suit your individual skin needs. We’d recommend you use a specialist facial sunscreen that suits your skin type and wear a hat on sunny days for complete protection.
Along with the great protection, sunscreens mean an additional layer of product to take off at night, so it’s time to kick the cleansing up a gear. A quick swipe with a wipe isn’t going to cut (for your face or the planet) and many skintellectuals swear by double-cleansing (using an oil-based cleanser, followed by a water-based cleanser such as our Honey & Propolis Cream Cleanser). If that sounds a little too much like hard work, a really good cream or balm cleanser should be up to the job.
When we asked on our social media platforms for your top Spring skincare swaps, a lot of people mentioned changing your moisturiser for something lighter now it’s a little warmer.
“Hydration, hydration, hydration! I’ve also opted for moisturisers that feel a bit lighter in formula now the sun has started to make an appearance too” Lauren at The Make-Up Maestro
“Swapping your moisturizer for something a little lighter is key, as our skin tends to hold more water in the spring and summer. Of course, I still use an SPF!” Laura at A Beauty Addict
If you’re after a spring glow, then exfoliation is a must – as we age, the rate at which our skin turns over and gets rid of old skin cells slows. Exfoliating helps this process along so that your skin can absorb moisture more effectively and look so much dewier. We recommend exfoliating your skin with our Honey & Camelina Facial Exfoliator at least once a week and up to 2-3 times a week, depending upon your age and skin type. Our exfoliator uses rolled lavender flowers and not micro-beads to gently lift dead skin cells.
If you’d like to give your skincare routine a good Spring clean, we’re currently offering 25% off our Facial Exfoliator with the code Spring25.
