With the clocks going forward this month and flowers starting to bloom, spring is finally on its way here. After a winter of heavy moisturisers, this is prime time to revitalise and reset your skin and bring back your inner radiance with lighter skincare, facial oils and calming tonics to rejuvenate.
Ready to spring clean your bathroom cabinet? Here’s our go-to guide for the season.
Exfoliate and brighten
It’s no secret that an essential step to radiant, glowing skin is exfoliating, but at the start of spring there’s never a more important time to make it part of your routine. Use a muslin cloth and a quality exfoliating face wash or chemical peel to remove dead cells and awaken a dull winter complexion. Be careful not to overdo it, though, as harsh exfoliating can irritate your skin. Experts recommend exfoliating once or twice a week max.
Revitalise with tonic
Spring florals needn’t be reserved for your wardrobe! Inlight Beauty’s Floral Tonic features a fusion of uplifting and astringent flower extracts such as rose, roman chamomile and lavender. Each ingredient is carefully selected to tone, refresh and balance your skin’s natural PH levels. Its alcohol-free formula is suitable for even the most sensitive skin.
After toning, it’s vital to restore moisture to protect your skin’s natural barrier. During spring, a light facial oil that nourishes and encourages cell renewal is enough to hydrate as we welcome warmer days. Inlight Beauty’s Organic Face Moisturiser Oil makes an ideal base for make-up and contains gentle hints of rose and vanilla.
Don’t forget sunscreen
As we welcome back warmer weather and longer, brighter days, the increased sun exposure and time spent outdoors
, means it’s time to up-level your sunscreen protection. While an SPF 30 is fine during winter, skincare experts advise a daily application of SPF 50 should be an essential part of your anti-ageing regimen and to protect your skin from UV exposure during spring and summer.
