5 Easy Ways to Spring Clean your Skin Care Routine

With spring, comes the perfect opportunity to reassess and improve upon your skincare routine. Warmer weather and higher sun exposure, means there are products you may have been using during the winter months that you may no longer have use for or find necessary. We have outlined our top tips to help you make your transition from winter to spring as smooth as possible:

  1. Clear dead skin with exfoliating treatments & products 

Ridding your skin of congestion is crucial to any effective skincare routine. The buildup of dead skin cells, dirt and contaminants that can clog pores if left untreated can lead to a variety of stubborn skin conditions. 

We suggest incorporating an exfoliating mask or cleanser to combat irregularities in skin tone and texture.

  • La Prairie 3 Minute Peel: a weekly booster to help renew, refresh and revitalise skin. This gentle yet potent peel polishes and refines skin by helping to usher fresh, young cells to the surface.

  • Cosmedix Cranberry Enzyme Mask: a mask that gently polishes away dead, dull surface skin to help reveal a softer, more radiant-looking complexion

  1. Double cleanse 

If you haven’t been double cleansing already we highly suggest you start! Double cleansing is a great way to ensure you remove all impurities from your skin you may have acquired during the day. Properly cleansing your skin allows for the products you apply to absorb as effectively as possible  whilst treating dull skin to enhance its overall appearance.

Lavish Loves: 

  • Cosmedix Purity Solution: a two-in-one makeup remover and cleanser with a nutrient-rich blend of radiance-boosting oils that gently melt away dirt, oil, makeup and impurities for a hydrated, healthy-looking glow.

  • Cosmedix Benefit Clean: ultra-gentle facial cleanser that lifts away dirt, oil, impurities and stubborn makeup while also soothing and hydrating the complexion.

  1. Opt for a lighter moisturiser 

It’s time to say goodbye to your ultra rich winter cream, now that the climate is changing so should your moisturiser. Environmental factors which might make a thicker moisturiser necessary are no longer applicable. We recommend opting for a lightweight, gel or water based moisturiser to avoid overloading the skin’s barrier.

  1. Nourish your skin from the inside out

One that many of you might not consider, investing in a high quality collagen supplement is an amazing way to ensure your body is receiving all of the skin loving nutrients it needs particularly when dehydration is more prominent. Overexposure to the sun and harmful UV rays is a top contributor to reduced collagen production.

Lavish Loves: 

  • Totally Derma Collagen Supplement: a high strength, powdered nutraceutical collagen drink supplement containing collagen amino acid peptides, hyaluronic acid and high levels of key antioxidants, anti-inflammatories and minerals for collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production and repair.

  1. Spruce up your SPF habits 

This tip might seem like a no brainer but that doesn’t make it any less vital. Ensuring you are making SPF application to protect your skin should be an unconditional part of your routine, especially when heading into the spring and summer months. Wear sunscreen daily to prioritise sun protection and reduce sun damage.

Lavish Loves: 

  • Aspect Envirostat SPF 50: Aspect Sun Envirostat Face SPF 50+ is a very high protection water resistant sunscreen cream which has been specially developed to provide protection from the sun in a lightweight formula.
