Birdsong filled mornings, daylight peering in through the curtains, fresh flowers popping up outside…Spring is here! As lovely as this season is, our skin can start to behave slightly differently as our skin adapts to the changes. You absolutely don’t need to refresh your entire routine with new products, but here’s a few simple tweaks you can make to ensure silky smooth and nourished skin from top to toe.
Here’s our top tips to boosting your new Spring season routine:
1. Up the water intake
We’re sure you’ve heard this time and time again but drinking water is so vital! Water makes up about 50-70% of our bodies. A lack of water can dehydrate our bodies and leave us looking tired. Start your day well by keeping a reusable bottle of water by your bedside to sip on as soon as you wake up, and to carry with you through the day. Try adding a wedge of lemon, a slice of cucumber or a few strawberries to natural flavour your water if you need that extra incentive.
2. Switch to a Cream Cleanser
Opting for a creamy cleanser will melt away impurities without stripping or disrupting oil balance. Look for formulations with nourishing ingredients such as shea butter and sweet almond oil like in our Abyssinian Oil Prime Time Cream Cleanser to hydrate skin whilst washing the day away.
3. All-Over Soft Skin
Adding a rich body cream into your shower routine will leave you with hydrated and silky soft skin for hours on end. Our Organic Vegan Hand & Body Cream is supercharged with sustainably sourced ingredients, like organic aloe vera and shea butter, for oh-so-soft skin from top to toe.
4. Hydra-Boost your Moisturiser
This hydrating yet lightweight moisturiser, is inspired by the smell of walking through a wildflower meadow, perfect for Springtime! Brought to life with Abyssinian Oil, Rose and Magnolia this moisturiser is packed with nourishing ingredients that help to reduce excess oil, so your complexion looks beautiful and balanced.
5. Introduce an Oil
The shift in temperature, as it gets warmer (yay!) can disrupt our skin’s moisture balance so introducing a boost of intense hydration with a balancing oil will help in the short term but also improve moisture retention as the months go on. Our Hydra Intense Facial Oil contains omegas 3, 6 and 9 that work to balance oil production, perfect for this time of year.
