As winter slowly disappears, and spring starts to make an appearance, it’s time to start changing the skincare routine from winter mode to spring mode. In general, women start wearing lighter shades of makeup and lighter nail colours, and for some, a change in hair colour is in the works. What’s forgotten, oftentimes, is taking care of the skin. And the truth is, after the harsh weather of winter, it’s time to restore and refurbish the skin.
Whether it’s moisturizing the skin after a particularly dry winter, or exfoliating and cleansing to start things fresh in a new season, skincare can take various approaches. And although personal care and attention can go a long way, a quality skincare salon can be integral in launching a new skincare regimen for spring and summer. What’s most important is to focus on quality products, and a skin care team that is skilled in everything.
A good sunscreen product should always be part of the routine, as the sun starts to shine more and more. As temperatures rise, and we spend more time outside, sunscreen protection is vital.
Leave behind the darker blush shades of winter, and choose softer blush palettes with a natural look that better reflects the season. Spring and summer is a time of warm air and sunny skies.
A facial cleansing brush added to the daily beauty routine will help to repair the skin, especially after a cold, dry winter. This approach also prepares the skin for rejuvenation during spring.
While winter has robbed the skin of moisture, vitamins can repair and restore the skin. With a wide range of vitamins to choose from, blemishes can be diminished and moisture restored.
Lighter makeup allows for a softer, more natural look, as the skin breathes fresh spring air for a change. But whatever the coverage, colour, or hue - its worth using higher quality products.
No more winter gloves - so those regular manicures are back on the agenda. There’s bound to be new colours and new techniques, and an entire spring and summer season to experiment.
It’s always a good idea to keep the skin hydrated. Amongst other benefits, hydration enhances the skin for a more youthful-looking complexion. It should become part of an ongoing regimen.
