Three Key Ways to Spring Clean Your Skin Care Routine From Sparx Winchester Beauty Salon
Marie Kondo has recently been inspiring many of us to organise our personal spaces, but did you know that even your skin care routine needs a spring cleaning session at this time of year as well?
Just as you adjusted to cold-weather skincare, for example by moving to a heavier moisturiser, now it’s time to get back to a some lighter products, so that your skin can continue looking and feeling its best in the warmer, fresher spring air.
At Sparx beauty salon in Wincheseter we are Alumier MD skin care experts and can give you all the advice you need to keep your skin in peak condition. Here are our top tips for giving your skin care routine good old fashioned spring clean!
Change Your Moisturiser
It’s time to change gear and bring back moisturizers that are lighter in intensity at this time of year. Now that the cold winter air that mercilessly dried out your skin is being replaced by some fresher March breezes, you will need a lighter moisturizer. Keep in mind, if you have certain skin conditions including excessive dry skin, psoriasis or eczema, then we’d recommend keeping your existing strength moisturizer through the spring season.
You Can Try:
When: Daily (morning and evening)
Why: this super light hydrator is perfect for oily skin. It contains antioxidants which neutralize free radicals from the sun, pollution and irritation plus hyaluronic acid that hydrates and plumps the skin by holding up to 1,000 times its weight in water.
Always Practice Safe Sun
You should always remember to protect your skin from the UVA and UVB rays regardless of the season, but as the sun begins to shine it’s doubly important. As the temperatures increase, it’s a also good idea to let your pores breath, perhaps replacing heavy makeup and foundation with a tinted version of a broad-spectrum sunscreen to give you the added boost of colour that you want in addition to sun safety.
You Can Try:
Moisture Matte Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 40: This tinted facial sunscreen with a matte finish is ideal for normal to oily skin. Because of the tint, it can also be used as a foundation.
Clear Shield Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 42: This lightweight sunscreen is formulated for all skin types even for those with oily, redness and acne-prone skin.
Sheer Hydration Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 40: This broad spectrum facial sunscreen also includes a moisturizing formula and is perfect for all skin types.
Why: Whether it’s spring, summer, autumn or winter, SPF should always be part of your skin care routine. P rotecting your skin against harmful UVA and UVB rays, this broad-spectrum sunscreen is full of beneficial nutrients including vitamins C, and vitamin E.
Bring Back the Spring Shine with Exfoliation
Your skin regenerates itself every 28 days, but giving the process a boost with an exfoliating session is always a good idea. It’s like spring cleaning your home – there’s nothing like seeing the light bouncing off the freshly-scrubbed surfaces. So, think of your face as that surface that glows when its rid of those annoying dead skin cells blocking all of your good shine.
You Can Try:
Bright & Clear Solution
When: Morning and evening
Why: This award-wining product is packed with Lactic acid, Lime Pearl and soy amino acids, and is perfectly formulated to encourage cell renewal revealing a brighter skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
When: Once or twice a week
Why: Lotus seed powder (that has natural moisturizing and calming properties to help you get that healthy glow) and microcrystalline cellulose and biodegradable exfoliating agents that are smooth and spherical. Why spherical? Because non-spherical exfoliating agents can irritate or injure the skin.
