Tips for a Better Spring Beauty Routine

Winter can be very harsh on the skin — freezing temperatures, hot showers and the dry indoor air can take its toll on your skin. Then, once temperatures get warmer, we get rid of protective clothing, only to reveal dry, cracked skin. So how does one transition from one season to another with healthy skin? Here are a few steps you can take to ensure that you maintain healthy-looking skin when transitioning from winter to spring.

As the temperatures rise, it is important to keep our bodies as hydrated as possible. There are two ways you can do this: bathing and drinking plenty of water. Bathing will help your skin stay hydrated if you do it correctly. With the perfect bath water temperature, Epsom salts and bath oils, you can wash off dead skin cells, which then allows your products to work with maximum efficiency. The steam from the bath water will also open your pores. This is a great time to apply a mask for added skin benefits. It is advisable that as soon as you emerge from the water, make sure you apply moisturiser before your skin dries. This is important because the product will lock in water particles, which can provide more hydration.
Drinking water is a must, as it ensures healthy-looking skin. Furthermore, skin can be hydrated through the consumption of plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables. An excellent way to make sure your immune system is in good shape and ensure you’re hydrated is to start the day with a glass of lukewarm water with a few drops of lemon squeezed into it. You will quench your thirst after a good night’s sleep and also up your Vitamin C intake.

Make-up in Summer

Make-up in Summer

We all love summer, but melting make-up, smeared eyeliner and super-sticky lipstick are not amongst them. There are a few things you can do to avoid these and keep make-up looking fresh and pretty, even when the weather is working against you. The way you care for your skin is just as important as the make-up you apply to it.
You can use an oil-free moisturiser in the morning, plus you should opt for an oil-free foundation formula to match. In summer, if you want to keep your make-up from creasing and caking, always remember that ‘’less is more’’.
Make-up has a habit of shifting when it's hot, so the best way to avoid that is to wear less of it. Everyone loves a nice glow, but there's a big difference between a healthy radiance and an over-the-top shine. Avoid cream foundations or anything too luminous, as the humidity will make you extra- shiny and sweaty-looking if you have too much sparkle on your skin.

Exfoliate But Not Too Much

Exfoliate But Not Too Much

Exfoliating is the process of removing the dead skin cells from the epidermis, so your newer, fresher skin cells are left at the top. Your skin feels smoother and looks far more radiant. You’ll also find that it can clear the pores of all the dirt and oils more easily, so that you’re left with cleaner skin, ready for your day or night ahead.
During the winter, it is easy to hibernate. Your skin may not be exposed to the sun, and soon starts to look dull. By creating a beauty routine that you follow throughout the year will ensure you have sun-ready skin all the time.
Most people will exfoliate their faces on a daily basis. However, most of us forget about the rest of the body. It can leave dull -looking shoulders and legs when it comes to bikini weather!
However, you may need to work your exfoliating routine in with your moisturising routine to really get the best benefits!

Body Skin

Most of us forget to take care of the skin on our bodies. Body treatments are important because they cleanse, exfoliate and hydrate the entire area of skin on the body - not only the facial skin.
The most popular body treatment is a body scrub, salt glow or sea salt scrub. The massage therapist rubs a mixture of sea salt, oil, and aromatics, such as lemon, into your skin. This exfoliates the skin and leaves it feeling velvety and soft.
Once your whole body is scrubbed, (which takes maybe ten or fifteen minutes), you rinse it all off without soap, leaving a delicious coating of oil. It's an invigorating treatment, and it is a good idea to get your scrub before your massage if you're having both.
A body mask and body wrap often takes place after a scrub. Once the salt is rinsed off, you will then return to the salon table for further treatment. If your therapist is using mud, algae, or seaweed, followed by wrapping you in a thermal blanket, expect to enjoy an invigorating "detoxifying" treatment that stimulates your metabolic system, speeding its ability to eliminate waste products. This is all worth it because it will leave your skin beautiful and glowing.
