Spring is in the air and the layers are coming off. No more hiding under a woolly hat or big winter coat, no more overloading the central heating that has resulted in dry, dull, dehydrated skin.
Spring is here and our skin is ready to come into bloom. Let’s help it on its way with a fab spring clean makeover.
The winter months certainly can take its toll, with skin becoming dry, dull, rough, flaky and more prone to fine lines and wrinkles. Just think of how the leaves of a plant look when they go without water, it’s the same for your skin, give the plant some water or the skin some moisture and you get an immediate bounce. So, if you want to keep skin looking healthy, radiant and glowing then a routine that incorporates a deep cleanse, exfoliation and some intense hydration is essential.
Good skincare starts with clean skin. Always choose a gentle cleanser that is free of harsh actives. Look for one that removes dirt and make-up and leaves the skin refreshingly clean but never over-stripped.
Exfoliation is also key for dehydrated skin to help get rid of a build up of dead skin cells which can form a barrier on the surface of the face. I always explain the analogy of a piece of burnt toast, try layering the toast with butter and it simply sits on the surface, whereby a gently toasted piece allows the butter to penetrate straight through. Think of the skin’s dead cells like the piece of burnt toast, remove them and the active ingredients within the products penetrate to where they need to be.
Again, like cleansers, go for the gentle option, overdoing it can do more harm than good. Once skin is exfoliated, you’ll notice that your moisturiser and serum will absorb better and work much more efficiently.
And so, to moisturise…. Dehydrated skin can be soothed in a number of ways but make sure you’re finishing off your day and night time routine with a moisturiser to lock in moisture and prevent trans-epidermal water loss. Ingredients to look for include hyaluronic acid, Alistin, Matrixyl, Pheodhydrane.
Follow these basic steps, choose your products wisely and you should start to see an improvement in how your skin looks and feels.
Looking beyond your skin care routine, turn that central heating off as it wreaks havoc on your skin, save a bit of cash too.
