Spring Clean Skin

If you have spent the winter months, over indulging on comfort food and red wine (never!) your skin may be in  need of some TLC as we look forward to spring and summer.  If it is looking a little tired and lack lustre, don't worry, with the right skincare routine you can see small improvements in a couple of days.

The skin around your eyes, is where the skin is thinnest, and therefore most delicate.  Use a specially designed product that will gently hydrate and brighten without over loading the skin.  There are lots of good products on the market, you are looking for moisture and skin plumping ingredients. Natural oils and botanicals are ideally placed for this, plus if you tend to suffer with puffy eyes, arnica is a great ingredient to watch out for, it is perfect for relieving trapped fluids.  

Keep your skin hydrated, regular moisturising is crucial for your skin - but so is finding the right level of hydration for you.  A cream will tend to keep your skin  hydrated for longer, lasting throughout the whole day, while a serum will usually give a shorter but more intense boost.  For some skins, a serum might be sufficient, for serious power though, don't overlook layering serum underneath your moisturising cream.  Serums allow high concentrations of anti-ageing ingredients to be absorbed more quickly and are a great tool in your skincare toolkit to restore radiance. 

Finally, think about gently exfoliating your skin regularly.  This will give your skin a deep cleanse, lifting impurities and debris,  unblocking pores and will  help to prevent whiteheads.  Finding the right routine for your skin is crucial here, you want to avoid at all costs irritating and reddening the skin.  Our tip, would be to start with a muslin cloth and your favourite cleanser; this gives a super gentle exfoliation treatment, and you can then step it up using a brush or specific exfoliating product.
