It’s April and Spring is here; the temperature is rising, which may cause a lot of changes to your skin type, texture and pores. Now's the time to make essential changes to your skincare routine. Heavy rich moisturisers should be replaced by lightweight hydrating gels and hydrating cleansers.
Here’s a short guide on Spring Skincare and how to ace your skincare routine this season.
Winter can leave your skin dry, and flaky while Spring brings warmer weather, possibly higher humidity, longer days, and sunshine, so it’s a good time to re-evaluate and update your skincare routine.
Exfoliate your skin to remove dry, dead skin regularly to maintain a fresh glowing complexion and smoother texture. The Lactic acid exfoliator gel is fairly mild but extremely effective - it gently exfoliates & resurfaces to reveal brighter, more even, and smoother skin.
Delicate Exfoliator is a gentle yet effective exfoliant, which not only gets rid of blackheads and sebum inside the pores but also to helps remove dead skin and unclog pores, revealing smoother and brighter skin.
2) Hydrate and Balance your Skin
During the Winter, we tend to opt for heavy textured, rich creams to feed our skin. Thick creams can be too heavy for the warmer weather, and leave skin feeling congested and oily.
The Green Tea Aqua Soothing gel is a cooling, non-oily gel-type moisturiser that immerses skin in hydration. It combats redness and irritation and is perfect for summer.
3) Choose the Right Cleanser for your skin.
We often find that the change of a season also brings some changes in our skin, when we go from the winter to the spring, we can find those changes include more frequent breakouts. Using a cleanser with AHA will remove oil, pollution and dust while gently removing dead skin cells.
COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser is a gentle gel type cleanser with mildly acidic pH level. Being gentle on the skin, this mild cleanser is highly effective in cleansing excess sebum on the skin without irritating or drying out your skin.
Glycolic Cleansing Foam is a gentle cleanser which helps clogged pores, blemishes and dull skin.
4) Don’t Forget SPF!
90% of skin ageing comes from UV damage! To keep your skin healthy, younger-looking and vibrant you need to invest in SPF protection, which is silicone free and compliments your skin, The Black Girl Sunscreen is filled with natural ingredients that will protect your skin from the sun and doubles as a moisturiser, (and does not leave white cast)!!
