4 spring skin care swaps to make
Now that spring is well and truly here, you’re probably exfoliating and moisturising religiously so you can show off healthy, glowing skin. That’s great! But have you thought about how the skin on your face is going to deal with the warmer days?
While your heavier winter skin care goodies helped your skin through freezing cold temperatures and drying wind and air con, its time to swap them out for some lighter buys. Here’s what to ditch and what to stock up on!
SWAP: Your creamy, hydrating cleanser
FOR: A foaming face wash
Creamy cleansers are great for giving your skin an instant hit of hydration in the cooler months, but they can be a little too heavy on skin when it’s warmer outside. Switch to a foaming cleanser to thoroughly whisk away the oil, dirt and sweat that can build up on your skin during the day.
SWAP: Your regular toner
FOR: A hydrating spray toner
Swiping your skin with a standard toner is great for lifting impurities, grit and grime, but in spring, why not give yourself a refreshing hit with a spray toner? It’ll help to hydrate, nourish and cool your complexion at the same time.
SWAP: Your exfoliating scrub
FOR: A powerful exfoliating peel
A good scrub is absolutely essential for clearing away dead skins cells and giving your skin an enviable glow, but now that winter’s behind us, it’s time to take it up a notch with an at-home enzyme peel. It’s not as scary as it sounds – peels are excellent for ridding your skin of stubborn dead cells that your scrub just can’t kick. The result? Super smooth skin, smaller pores and a glow you’ll want to show off!
SWAP: Your thick, heavy night cream
FOR: A lighter night cream
Thicker and creamier night creams are great for giving your mug deeper nourishment and extra comfort in winter, but using them on balmy nights can leave you with greasy skin, or worse, breakouts. And nobody wants to wake up to that! Opt for a lighter night cream for smooth, hydrated skin.
