Skin Care: 4 Tips for Transitioning to Spring

The longer days and warmer temperatures of spring could not be a more welcome change but sometimes our skin needs a bit more time than our minds to adjust to the shifting seasons. Winter can take a serious toll on our skin; low moisture levels, icy winds, and heavy foundations leave many of us with dry, flaky and red skin. Luckily, spring is the perfect time to re-evaluate your skin care routine and with just a few simple changes, you’ll have glowing, fresh skin in no time!

Tip #1: Exfoliate

Get rid of that dull, dry layer of skin with a gentle exfoliator. I would recommend steering clear of microbead products in favor of something with natural ingredients and that won’t damage the environment. The Herbivore Botanicals Pink Clay Dry Mask is suitable for all skin types, including those with sensitive skin and is my pick for getting a baby soft complexion. Pink Clay is great for cell renewal, removing impurities, improving elasticity and revealing an overall fresh appearance. Apply as a mask, let dry and remove with a warm muslin cloth.

Tip #2: Switch to a Lighter Moisturizer

Warmer temperatures and increasing humidity means you can swap out heavy creams for a lighter boost of hydration. Oils are a great option, my favourite being the Now Solutions Organic Jojoba Oil. Jojoba oil has both antioxidant and antibacterial properties. It absorbs very quickly due to its similarity with sebum, the oil secreted by the skin’s glands. Use 2-3 drops of this soothing hydrator by patting it gently onto your face.

Tip #3: Add a Brightening Face Serum

Infuse some sunshine into your skin with the Andalou Naturals Brightening Turmeric + C Enlighten Serum. This is great for hyperpigmentation, stimulating collagen and evening out texture for a smoother complexion. Apply in the morning and before your moisturizer for glowing skin all day. Those with very sensitive skin, do a spot test before using, as some may find the formula too potent.

Tip #4: Ditch the Heavy Foundations

Let your skin breathe this Spring with a more lightweight foundation like the Physicians Formula Organic Wear CC Color Correction + Cream. It offers 20 SPF, sheer to medium coverage and great staying power. The formula is hypoallergenic, fragrance, gluten and paraben free.

    Thank you for this your valuable tips about skin care. But some time it’s difficult to choose good skin care products. After researches I found some good natural products and tips from Annimateo and also from your post.

    This is such good advice! I absolutely love this – especially your tip about exfoliation because it’s just so incredibly important to do this if you want good clear skin (and brown sugar scrubs are sheer perfection)! I used to be a makeup artist a long time ago, and I would tell my clients to exfoliate their skin regularly, especially during a build up to a big event, and they always said how much of a difference it made! I did really love being able to provide clients with tips on how to improve their health and lives, in a weird way it was actually one of the things I enjoyed the most about my job as a makeup artist – because although makeup is great – it only lasts a day, but helping to change someone’s lifestyle and health regime stays with them forever. But my days of makeup artistry are loonnnggg behind me now – I’ve been really focusing on being the best mum I can be for my two beautiful children these last few years! Although I must admit, though I do adore my kids more than life itself, I really do miss the world of work sometimes, and especially working within the beauty industry. I’ve actually been looking at getting into the whole network marketing thing as a sort of part time filler job so I can get the best of both worlds (being a mum and a professional I mean)! I’m currently looking at working for a company called Forever Knowledge have you heard of them before, or do you know of anyone who works for them? They look like a good company to work for from what I’ve read and heard! I know lots of people go through Avon but I just have so many friends who work for them already, and thought it would be better to branch out and do something different! What do you think? Do you have any advice you could offer me at all? Any help or suggestions here would be much appreciated x
