This year make sure your no-make up pics look just as stunning as Beyonce’s and Alicia’s!
We never forget to change up our styles and wardrobes, but what about our skin care routines? The dry air from the cold weather can cause our skin to become itchy and can make conditions such as psoriasis, rosacea and eczema worse.
Read on to discover tips on how you could achieve stunning skin like Beyonce and Alicia Keys
As it warms up outside, try and change up your spring skin care routine for a healthy and glowing complexion. Here are some of the best changes we should all be making to our skin care regimes this season:
Never forget SPF
While it is always important to wear a sun-protective moisturiser, finding one with a high SPF is a good idea, yes, even during colder weather. Pick one that is waterproof and apply this 2-3 times a day. If your skin tends to be acne-prone, go for a gel texture cream to avoid clogging up your pores. Make sure you apply the product to all areas of your body that’s exposed to the sunlight, but let’s face it, most areas will be covered up in winter.
Consider a healing and soothing gel rather than moisturiser
This spring, in the spirit of renewing and transformation, treat your skin to a topical repair gel, particularly if you have acne-prone skin. Consider 1001 Remedies’ Magic Skin (£32) which is based on the healing properties of Myrrh. Myrrh has a strong anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antifungal properties, which make it an ideal ingredient to remedy to skin rashes and flare ups. After application on the skin conditions, there is an immediate soothing and cooling effect.
Exfoliate your way to a glowing complexion
Exfoliation is the best way of restoring a fresh radiance. It removes any dead skin cells especially after a long and cold winter. Try to exfoliate once a week and avoid any products that are too harsh and could irritate the skin. This will help your moisturiser to absorb quicker and deeper into your skin and will even out the texture.
PHB Ethical Beauty’s brightening jojoba exfoliator available from Melariche (£15.50) is a gentle skin refresher, with extracts of grapefruit and kukui. Unlike many other exfoliators, this contains purely natural jojoba exfoliating beads, which don’t harm sea life or the environment, and gently polish the skin rather than stripping it of its natural oils.
Say NO to heavy foundations
Spring is the best time for you to show off your natural glow and put those heavy foundations aside. One way that you can make sure that a little make up goes a long way is the Iconic London Illuminator Drops (£29.99). These concentrated shimmer drops allow you to customise any product in your makeup bag. Add them to your foundation, primer, moisturiser or use them on their own for a super highlighted golden glow.
Embrace the science of beautiful skin
Beauty experts say to get better and more noticeable results in your skin regime, you have to go deeper and consider how hormones, digestion and immunity play a part. Equi Beautiful (£62 for a 30 day supply) by Equi London is a targeted skincare powder formulation offering a more holistic nutritional system for improved skin results.
Designed to be taken once daily for a powerful shot of nutrients, Equi’s supplement powders will last approximately 30 days and deliver well-rounded nutritional support to the equivalent of 15-20 pills per day.
