Spring is almost here, and for many people, it’s the perfect time of the year to take stock of their home and do some spring cleaning. However, your beauty routine could also stand to be revamped a little bit, especially if you’ve stuck to the same thing day in and out for the past few months.
So, take a look at why you should rethink your current skincare routine and what you can do to make it better than ever.
Why Spring Clean Your Routine?
If you lead a busy life, you probably don’t even notice when you slip into bad or unhealthy habits (this is even worse now that you’ve been spending more time at home), so thinking about your skincare routine will help you see what needs improving – and get that glowing complexion you dream of.
So, this can be the perfect opportunity for you to declutter your product shelf and come up with a better routine for your skin, which will help you look and feel better.
Cleanse Your Skin
Whether because of winter or because of lockdown, it’s easy to forgo key steps in your skincare routine, including cleansing. This is necessary to remove oil, dirt, grime and other substances from your skin, and to brighten and refresh your complexion.
By doing this, you also prevent bacteria from growing on your skin, which could lead to breakouts. So, take stock of what you’re doing at the moment and phase cleansing back into your routine if you’ve been slacking in this department.
Change Your Products
During winter, we tend to go with heavier products to make up for the colder weather that can dry our skin. But, as the temperatures start to rise – or become less cold in any event – lighter products are certainly preferable. Heavy moisturisers can make you feel greasy and sticky, so a lighter product can help your skin feel fresh and radiant instead.
Get Rid of Winter
Spring is a time of renewal, so what better way to refresh your skin than with a HydraFacial treatment? They sweep away all the dead cells that have accumulated on your skin and made it duller in the past few months; it will also cleanse it deeply, ensuring your pores can breathe and are not getting clogged.
This procedure offers hydration, exfoliation, antioxidant protection, red LED light therapy, and more, resulting in a brighter, glowing complexion.
By removing the dead cells from your skin, you can also boost the efficiency of the products you apply afterwards, from moisturisers to serums.
Amp Up Your Sunscreen
Sunscreen is important to use all year round, but more so as the days grow longer and warmer. Sunlight can be incredibly harmful for your skin, from leading to early wrinkles and lines to being responsible for sunspots and other blemishes.
So, make sure that you don’t leave the house without it. Your lip balm, your eye cream, your moisturiser, your makeup – all of these should have some SPF if you want to keep your skin younger-looking and fresher for longer.
Clean Your Brushes
Spring cleaning extends to your makeup brushes too. Dirty brushes are not good for your complexion, as they can actually lead to acne and breakouts, for instance. So, organise your makeup and make sure everything is either clean or new so that you’re not working with makeup residue and clogging your pores.
Try Something New
Sure, if something is working, don’t break it. But why not take this opportunity to try a new product or change a habit? If you don’t include a toner in your routine, maybe you can try it out and see if it works for you.
Likewise, if you’ve been forgetting to drink water; while this isn’t exactly a skincare tip, hydration plays a very important role in the appearance of your skin, even if indirectly, so increase your water consumption to see if it makes a difference. We’re betting it will!
