Skincare Tips for Glowing Skin This Spring

Skincare Tips for Glowing Skin This Spring

If there's one season that's synonymous with rejuvenation, it's spring. As the cold winter recedes and the blossoms burst forth, it's only fitting that our skincare routines also transform.

A radiant, healthy glow is certainly attainable this season if you're armed with the correct tips and tricks. So here are the top skincare tips for a radiant glow this spring...

Hydration, Hydration, Hydration
As temperatures rise, your skin requires extra hydration. We all know that guzzling down water is a must (hint: it does your skin wonders!), but did you know your skin loves a little extra sip from the outside too? We'd recommend a refreshing spritz of a facial mist and a hyaluronic acid serum to give you plump and glow.

Spring Clean Your Skincare Shelf
Out with the old, in with the new. Your skin’s needs change with the seasons. Heavier winter creams can be replaced with lighter lotions and serums. Check expiry dates and throw away old products. Also, remember to clean your makeup brushes regularly!

Exfoliate for Brightness
Winter can leave your skin looking dull due to a build-up of dead skin cells. Bring back the brightness by exfoliating once or twice a week. Opt for a gentle exfoliator; they can be equally as effective and far less irritating.

For the perfect body exfoliater, why not give Navy Body Scrub a try?

These Navy Hemp Manicure Mitts are great for a good scrub too!

SPF is Your Best Friend
As the sun begins to make more of an appearance, the need for SPF increases. And yes, even if you’re behind a window, those harmful rays can still reach your skin. Protect yourself with a broad spectrum of SPF daily.

Include Antioxidants in Your Routine
Antioxidants like Vitamin C and E fight the damaging effects of pollution and brighten the skin, perfect for a radiant spring glow. They also boost the effectiveness of your SPF!

Keep it Light
With an increase in temperatures, you might experience more oiliness. Switch heavy creams for lighter lotions or gels that will keep your skin hydrated without being too heavy.

Stay Masked
Facial masks are like a spring cleaning for your pores. They help remove excess oils and impurities, tighten your skin, and minimize pores. Incorporating a weekly facial mask into your skincare routine is a good idea (aswell as squeezing in a hand and foot mask too!)

Don’t Forget Your Eyes and Lips
Your lips and eye areas have thinner skin, making them particularly susceptible to dehydration and sun damage. Ensure they’re protected with a good lip balm (with SPF) and eye-specific SPF protection too.

Remember that the key to that radiant glow doesn’t just lie in having a good skincare routine but also maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Proper sleep, a balanced diet, and regular exercise contribute significantly towards achieving your best skin. So here's to a fresh start this Spring – for you, and your skin!
