With winter almost at its end, now is the time to hit refresh on your skin. The cooler months will often cause your complexion to become dry, irritated, dull or tightened but thankfully there are a number of ways this can be resolved.
As the seasons change so must your approach to skincare. The winter cold and indoor heating can lead to dull, dry, irritated and sensitive skin. Post winter skincare is all about rejuvenation and protection to get back your glowing skin. Now is the time to switch up your products, refresh your diet, and invest in laser treatments to boost skin cell turnover and elastin production. With the below tips you’ll have younger-looking glowing skin before you know it.
Don’t let your skincare routine fall just because it’s warming up. Cleanse twice a day with a gentle cleanser to rid skin of excess oil and dirt. Increase exfoliation to two to three times per week to remove dead skin cells and turn over new ones, promoting a smoother and brighter complexion with a more even skin tone. Swap your heavy winter moisturiser out for a lighter formulation that will allow your skin to breathe while still being hydrated. Also ensure to increase your SPF – No more forgetting or just going with the SPF 15 in your moisturiser. Protect your skin from premature ageing and keep that youthful glow with minimum SPF 30, but ideally SPF 50.
Hydration is the most important factor in restoring your glow. Hydrate from within with plenty of water and reduce coffee and alcohol consumption. Hydrated skin can repair itself and produce elastin, which is vital for youthful glowing skin. Avoid fried and processed foods, and added sugars, instead favour a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins to ensure that you are getting plenty of vitamins and minerals to boost the skin’s natural regenerative process.
