As the weather starts to get warmer, we like to re-assess our routine and products to ensure our skin is prepared for the transition. Temperature changes, sun exposure and humidity levels can attribute to a number of skin issues, so we put measures in place to hopefully keep our skin in tip-top condition. Our take on spring skincare is lighter textures, increasing hydration via light layers and opting for antioxidant rich products to help protect our skin from environmental damage. Here we share some of our must have products to take us through from winter to spring.
Indie Lee COQ10
This is a gorgeous alcohol-free toner that is jam packed with antioxidants, primarily from COQ-10 which is naturally found in our bodies. This is more than just your standard toner; this imparts a beautiful glow and drenches the skin in moisture. It is beautiful for layering in between serums to ensuring you benefit fully from the active ingredients as it dampens skin allowing for better absorption.
Josh Rosebrook Hydration Booster
Some might say this is dewy skin in a bottle (us!). This oil free, fragrance free serum does an incredible job at plumping out fine lines and wrinkles, leaving skin with an enviable glow. It’s a fine blend of humectants to seal moisture into the skin, anti-inflammatories to calm down any irritation and antioxidants to protect and replenish. Brilliant for keeping skin balanced through the changing seasons and it’s worth noting that because it’s a ‘concentrate’ a little goes a long way!
Yuli Liquid Courage
If we could choose only one antioxidant-based product this would be it. In fact, it’s a complete all-rounder in that it works on targeting and correcting a multitude of skin concerns. An absolute dynamite formula that is delivered in the form of a lightweight oil, this blends together over 20 key actives that work in tandem with each other to boost overall skin health. Liquid courage couldn’t be a better name for it!
Salt & Stone Non-Nano SPF50 Sun Lotion
As the sun starts to make a regular appearance it is so important to ensure we are protected from its harsh rays. Although we advocate wearing SPF all year round, we start to wear a factor 50 going into spring/summer. What we love about this one is its packed with nourishing and antioxidant infused ingredients so you are getting hydration and protection in one. It’s lightweight, easily absorbed and works wonderfully under makeup.
Body Deli Melon Foaming Cleanser
This skin brightening cleanser is brilliant for lacklustre skin. The light gel texture makes for a refreshing start to your routine, gently cleansing without stripping the skin from its natural oils. What’s wonderful about the formulation is it’s suitable for all skin types. You get the hydrating benefits from the cantaloupe melon yet the addition of turmeric and liquorice will help purify, restore radiance and reduce inflammation.
Top Tip – If you are looking to re-use any open products you had in your stash last Spring be aware of expiry dates and take notice of the ‘period after opening’ symbol. This will be detailed somewhere on the product. If you were using it last year then the chances are it will probably be near to end of life! Use your senses to determine if it is acceptable to put on your skin.
