Spring has finally sprung and there’s nothing quite like a spring clean to make you feel on top of things – but have you ever considered spring cleaning your skincare?
Sometimes we can get stuck in a rut with routines that don’t serve us well and we need to switch things up to keep our skin looking fresh.
Whether you’re happy with your skin care or not, it’s good to be conscious that changing seasons can affect your skin. Thankfully, coming out of the colder winter months often means a natural improvement and saying goodbye to dry skin. We can finally set aside our heavier moisturisers and makeup and focus on keeping our skincare lighter, fresher and sun-protecting.
Springtime is a time for fresh starts, including for your skin! If you didn’t before, it’s time to start cleansing regularly to keep your skin cleansed of bacteria, sweat and makeup.
Cleansing aids in the removal of dead skin cells, making way for fresh ones to generate. New skin cells hold more moisture, meaning your skin will glow and the rest of your skincare will be better utilised too.
The award-winning Creamy Coconut Cleanser from Odylique is a fantastic, non-comedogenic facial cleanser designed for normal-dry and normal-oily skin types, making it a great all-rounder, especially if you’re a skincare newbie.
If your skin is taking its time to adjust to warmer weather and is still feeling dry, try the brilliant Silk Touch Cleanser, which cleanses and removes makeup, while providing up to 8 hours of hydration afterwards, to help you wake up to a glowing complexion.
Have blemish prone or oily skin? The Lemon and Tea Tree Purifying Wash will answer your skincare prayers. This gentle wash will clean away bacteria, dirt and excess oil. In terms of freshness, it’s hard to beat with its beautiful blend of balancing essential oils.
Let’s not forget about our hair. With the cooler weather behind us, it’s time to restore the moisture that has been lost in the winter and rid ourselves of product build-up, which can cause scalp problems and limp hair. Using an organic, silicone free shampoo, like the Gentle Herb Shampoo will help cleanse your hair from old product that won’t budge and encourage healthy hair growth with botanicals like horsetail extract and rosemary.
Even with the lighter mornings, waking up isn’t always easy. Odylique’s Balancing Citrus Super Tonic is a great way to freshen up your routine and to perk up quickly. For those of you with oily/combination skin, a quick spritz of this won’t just leave your skin toned and balanced, but the subtle fragrance from the citrus oils will energize and lift your mood too.
For those of you who don’t have oily skin, the Calming Rose Super Tonic is the way to go if you want to invigorate your senses, stimulate cell regeneration and calm redness and irritation.
With any luck, we’ll experience lots of sunshine in the upcoming months, meaning that your skin will need some protection (after you top up those vitamin D levels, of course!). One of the best ways to protect your skin is to use an organic sunscreen with broad-spectrum protection. Not only will Odylique’s Natural Sunscreen protect you from UVA and UVB rays, but with extracts of chamomile, antioxidant rosemary, and sea buckthorn, it can calm and counteract damaging effects of the sun, while keeping your skin free from any harmful sunscreen chemicals, which you can find out more about here.
Make up with your skin:
Warmer weather often means cutting down on makeup to let your skin breathe. But what if we told you that you could keep wearing makeup throughout the longer days and it’ll benefit your skin? Through choosing organic options, it can be a reality!
Instead of thick foundation, a touch of organic concealer blended with a light moisturiser will give you a pretty, natural glow.
We’ve all been there – using an old mascara that’s been sitting in our makeup bag for who knows how long, creating a breeding ground for bacteria. ‘Out with the old and in with the new’ has never been so necessary! Top your look off with some fluttery lashes using organic mascara and you’re good to go.
