Spring Is Back!

That time of the year most of us rejoice for has finally come around again. 

The sun will grace us a little while longer, delicate flowers will re-blossom and our skirts and short sleeve blouses will resurface from the back of our wardrobes, all confirming that SPRING IS BACK.

It’s one of our favourite times of the year however the drastic change in weather from cold-winter to spring-bliss, can be quite daunting to our impressionable skin. 

Tailoring your skin routine with each changing season is highly recommended as our skin reacts uniquely to the different elements.

Below are some helpful tips on how to transition your skin this year from winter, to what’s forecasted to be a very sunny spring!

Before anything exfoliate. 

After months of synthetic heating and cold winds, our skin can become quite dry and flaky. This is where exfoliating comes in. Scrub away dead skin cells to allow your skin to reap the true benefits of your beauty products and promote healthier, smoother skin.

The skin around our face is delicate, so opt for a gentle exfoliating scrub. We recommend trying our multi- award winning AOES exfoliate scrub made with rich organic oils like jojoba seed, grape seed, argan and avocado for a fresh and glowing complexion.

Make the switch

to a lighter moisturiser.

If you’re like most, the humidity and warmth of spring will cause your skin to produce more oils than it did in winter. Therefore, you have the option of using a lighter moisturiser to promote a balanced complexion, and avoid looking and feeling ‘clogged’. Our AEOS Energising Moisturizer is famously light-weight with no trace of oily-residue. 

Always be sun smart!

Although we’re told to wear sunscreen everyday of the year, it’s understandable that in the colder months our slip, slop, slap habits die down. Now that the sun is stronger however, it’s absolutely necessary to ritualise our sunscreen wearing.

Remembering to wear it every day can be hard, so we recommend purchasing foundations and coverage creams with SPF25+ included. Try our Full coverage BB cream for a light and glowing finish. 

Cleanse away the day.

After being in the delightful sun all day, washing and cleansing your pores thoroughly, using clean and nourishing ingredients is a must. It’s important to think about the products we use on our skin to ‘clean’ it and be conscious of the ingredients we are feeding into the layers.

Quality ingredients will nurture our pores and clear away any dirt acquired throughout the day.

Our non-oily light Florame Face Cleansing Oil removes any traces of makeup and impurities without drying your skin out. 

Follow these steps and walk into Spring feeling fresh and prepared, all day long and say goodbye to the winter blues.
