Update your Skincare for Spring in 5 Easy Steps
The days are getting lighter, the weather is getting warmer, and just like your wardrobe, it’s time to switch up your skincare for spring. We’ve put together 5 simple steps and must-have products that will help you to achieve your best-ever glow-up.
Step 1 – Opt for a Gentle Cleanser
Cleansing is one of the most important first steps for any skincare routine no matter what the season. During winter we tend to use richer cleansers like a lotion or balm to hydrate the skin but for spring, we highly recommend using a gel formula like our Seahorse + Plankton Revitalising Gel Cleanser. This organic-blend lifts away makeup and impurities while delivering all the essential plant-powered nutrients your skin needs to restore balance. Plus, gel cleansers are better for reducing excess oil as temperatures start to rise.
Step 2 – Exfoliate & Treat
Cold winter weather can make your skin look dry and dull. Perk up your complexion with our Naked Konjac Sponge. This super-soft, plastic-free, natural sponge is infused with pollen to support skin brightness. For best results, use it with your cleanser to get rid of dead skin and to help decongest problem areas. Once your skin is feeling polished, go in with our award-winning Seahorse Plankton + 5 Minute Miracle Mask made with Kaolin Clay that is renowned for its detoxifying properties to help soothe and treat the skin while the blend of Microalgae stimulates collagen so skin looks renewed, hydrated and firmer.
Step 3 – Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise
In spring we want our moisturisers to make our skin look healthy, balanced, and incredibly glowy. One of the ingredients that help us to achieve this is Rose Oil. Loaded with vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals, rose is a highly beneficial ingredient that helps to brighten and even the skin tone while strengthening skin’s barrier and boosting moisture levels. That’s why we’ve added it to our Abyssinian Oil Hydra Boost Day Cream so you can enjoy a beautifully balanced complexion. Plus, it’s also infused with Abyssinian Oil and Magnolia so skin looks all the more luminous.
Step 4 – Add a multi-tasking marvel to the mix
As the days get lighter, we like to spend more time outdoors and if you’re going straight from desk to drinks, give yourself a pick-me-up with our all-purpose Abyssinian Oil Handbag Beauty Balm. This little pot works as a cleanser, eyebrow shaper, lip balm, and moisturiser so you can enjoy a fresh-faced look any time of the day and night.
Step 5 – Prime & Protect
As the days heat-up we like to wear less makeup and want to create a lit-from-within glow. That’s where our Raw Inventions Mineral Shield SPF30 Daily Primer comes into play. This all-natural primer creates a soft-focus finish under makeup and can be worn alone as an SPF over moisturisers giving you the protection it needs against pollution and impurities. The best bit… It's made from minerals that are kinder on skin and to the environment.
