Best tips for a New Spring skincare routine

Spring is here that means more sun rays and a new skin care routine. Check out our top spring skin care tips and product reccomendations.

After months of cold temperatures and drying indoor heat, the winter season can cause your skin's moisture barrier to be dehydrated.
This can result to dryness, breakouts, an overproduction of sebum, and sensitivity.

Focus on refreshing your skin

It is important that you refresh and restore hydration to the skin. Try gentle ingredients like Hyaluronic acid, olive oil, Aloe vera, Green tea or Vitamin E.
One of our go-to Olive oil, Green tea -infused product is the Green tea Hydrating Face Cream, a nourishing lotion that is formulated to hydrate and strengthen the skin barrier.
Aside from hydrating olive oil, the face cream also contains licorine which is great to regenerate the skin's elastin and collagen and also get your complexion back on track.
Also try the Recharge face wash to gently cleanse your face of all impurities without stripping your skin of its natural oils.This face wash is free of any potentially irritating ingredients, so it’s perfect for sensitive post-winter skin.

Swap your thick moisturiser for a light one

What ever skin type you have, don't be tempted to skip out on face moisturiser now that winter is over. Swap your thick moisturiser with a lighter one.

Look for formula with a humectant like, Aloe, Hyaluronic acid and Honey that moisturizes and prevents dehydration but doesn’t suffocate skin. Our pick is the Daily Hydrating Vitamin E Face cream, which has a lightweight yet nourishing consistency that is ideal for the spring and summer. It contains Grapeseed, Coconut, Jojoba oils, Vitamin E and Aloe Vera, to help soothe, hydrate, and improve skin texture.

Exfoliate for blemish free skin

Keep your pores clear by exfoliating 2-3 times a week. Look forexfoliators with AHAs, BHAs, and PHAs thats boosts natural cell turnover with a non-irritating formula so it's safe to use daily.

Don't leave your SPF behind

If you didn't use much sunscreen during winter season, you'll need to pick one up asap. Finding a sunscreen that is lightweight and doesn't leave a white film of the face can be hard. To make it easy for you, we have found two. Try Black girl sunscreen or Supergoop, they are lightweight and an easy way to reapply sunscreen throughout the day.
