As the seasons change, so to should our skincare. Transitioning from winter to spring means that it’s time to kick our winter skincare habits and welcome the rising temperatures with the appropriate product and treatment changes. So, we’ve pulled together six easy-to-follow skincare tips that will keep you glowing right through to summer!
Eat healthy and hydrate
It’s the most simple advice we can offer when it comes to maintaining a radiant complexion: be sure to drink plenty of water and eat those veggies for healthier skin. Need more flavour? Spritz your water with lemon, lime or strawberry! Try cracked pepper and lemon juice on those veggies.
Sweat it out and shower immediately after
Working out not only makes you fit, it helps your body eliminate toxins and improves circulation – giving you that gorgeous spring skin glow. As soon as you’re done with your run, make sure to wash off all that sweat. Skin still looking dull? Consider microdermabrasion, it removes the dead outer surface of the skin with light abrasion. This unclogs your pores and leaves your skin feeling incredible.
Pretend you’re the star of Twilight!
Protect your skin and stay out of the sun, especially if you are preparing to have laser hair removal or you were recently treated. Sunscreen is (and always should be) your new best friend. Try Balense UV Defiance SPF 50+ for protection and hydration.
Feeling anxious for the spring races? Have an apple and relax.
Or cook up some eggplant, try some garlic or a cup of tea. These all have polyphenols to help protect your skin against oxidative stress, which contributes to ageing and disease!
Check for dryness
Run your fingernail across your skin. Does it leave a white mark? This means your skin could be quite dry and in need of moisture and exfoliation to remove that layer of dry skin. We highly recommend you nourish your skin with a quality moisturiser with strong and top quality ingredients, our favourite is the Balense ReBalense Moisturiser for normal skin, RRP $ 55.
Change your pillow case more often
Oil from your hair will leave oil on your pillowcase when you sleep. Avoid sleeping on an oily surface all night and change your pillowcase once a week.
