Transition skincare from winter to spring

As the warm spring sun thaws Australia from the winter months, many people will be heading outdoors to enjoy the warmer weather, greenery, and blooming fauna.

You mustn’t abandon your skincare regime just because the sun is out, though, because spring weather can be just as harsh on your skin as the dry winter air.

Winter is often time when many people experience dry, itchy or flaky skin. This is because the air in homes and offices tends to be very dry during this season, causing dry, chapped lips and hands, cracked heels, and flaky skin conditions. If you’re not careful with how you treat your skin during this time of year, it could lead to extended skin problems.

If you have managed to keep up your skincare during winter - well done, you may even emerge with even fresher, renewed skin in time for for the change of season. However, it is essential that, like the changing of the seasons, you transition from winter to spring with a renewed, diciplined skincare routine.

Skin Hydration is the key

Like most people, you probably don’t think much about how your skin reacts to seasonal changes, however, if you want to keep your skin looking healthy and vibrant throughout the year, you need to understand how weather affects its condition.

As winter makes way for spring, hydration becomes crucial to protect your skin from the sun's rays and higher temperatures. You should always use sunscreen when going outside during the day, especially in springtime, since UV rays are more potent this time of year. If you have sensitive skin, try using an oil-free moisturiser with SPF 30 or higher. And remember – don’t forget about lips! They need protection, too, so apply lip balm with SPF.

It is also recommended that you select natural skincare products packed with antioxidants and natural vitamins like vitamin C. This can help to lighten brown spots and help smooth fine lines and wrinkles, while also ensuring you are empowering you skin regimen with a natural defence rather than synthertic ingrediends that can be found in many over the counter products.

It's also a good idea to drink 10-12 glasses of water a day and increase your fruit intake. This will keep your body and your skin hydrated during the changing seasons.

Spring is the season for exfoliation

Our skin naturally rejuvenates by shedding dead cells, but they can clog pores and cause breakouts if these cells build up. That’s why it’s important to exfoliate regularly, especially in the spring and summer when humidity is higher.

Exfoliating helps remove excess oil, dirt, makeup and other impurities that can lead to blemishes. It also stimulates cell turnover, which allows your moisturiser or serum to penetrate more deeply into the skin. This will leave you with a fresh-faced glow.
