Spring Clean your Skincare Regime



Holly Baldwin

As the sun begins to shine brighter every day and the flowers start blooming, it’s the perfect time to refresh your everyday skincare routine and embrace a simple, 3-step spring regime. Bid farewell to dull and dry winter skin and welcome a fresh and luminous glow just in time for the sun to start shining. Let’s delve into the importance of each step – cleansing, toning, and moisturising. These are absolutely essential steps in every great skincare routine to achieve skin that’s refreshed, glowing, and nourished.

Step 1: Cleanse Away Impurities

Cleansing is integral to every effective skincare routine. Skin accumulates excess oil, dead skin cells, and environmental pollutants over time, leading to clogged pores, dullness, and in some cases breakouts and acne. By incorporating a gentle yet thorough cleanser into your regimen, you can rid your skin of impurities and pave the way for better absorption of subsequent skincare products.

Choosing the right cleanser is crucial, especially for the changing of the season from winter to spring when the skin may experience changes due to fluctuating temperatures and increased humidity. We recommend opting for a cleanser that is suited to your skin concerns and skin type – whether it’s oily, dry, combination, or sensitive. Look for ingredients like glycerin or hyaluronic acid, which work to hydrate the skin without stripping it of its natural oils. Cleansing your face twice daily – once in the morning and once in the evening helps you to maintain a fresh and clear complexion.

Step 2: Tone and Balance

After cleansing, it’s time to tone and rebalance the skin. Toning is often an overlooked step in the average skincare routine, yet it plays a vital role in restoring the skin’s pH balance and preparing it to absorb the benefits of subsequent skincare products. Toners help to tighten pores, refine the skin’s texture, and provide a burst of hydration, leaving your complexion revitalized and refreshed.

When selecting a toner for your spring clean skincare routine, we’d recommend picking formulas that are packed with nourishing ingredients like witch hazel, rose water, or green tea extract. These natural extracts help to soothe and calm the skin whilst providing antioxidant protection against environmental stressors. To add toner to your routine, simply apply a small amount to a cotton pad after cleansing and gently swipe it across your face and neck, focusing on areas of congestion or uneven skin tone.

Step 3: Hydrate and Nourish

Moisturising is the final step in your spring clean skincare regime, and it’s absolitely essential. If you want to create or maintain a healthy and glowing complexion, moisturiser is a skincare step that can’t be skipped. Our moisturisation needs can change depending on the weather; for instance as the weather warms up, our skin may require lighter hydration compared to the heavier creams typically used during winter. The first step in choosing a moisturiser is knowing what ingredients are right for you. If you need to lock in hydration, opt for hyaluronic acid. If you have a damaged skin barrier, look for ceramides. if you have hyperpigmentation and/or dark spots, Vitamin C. Figuring out what ingredients are a good match for your skin type will give better results in the long run. Generally though, for warm weather and humidity, a lightweight and hydrating moisturizer that absorbs quickly into the skin is perfect, and for colder wintry winter, a heavier moisturiser is often your best bet.

Moisturisers act as a protective barrier, sealing in moisture and preventing water loss throughout the day. Look for ingredients that hydrate and nourish the skin while fortifying its natural barrier function. Apply moisturiser generously to your face and neck at the end of your skincare routine. Don’t forget to extend the application to your décolletage, as this area is prone to dryness and premature aging.

Skincare can be overwhelming, especially when you’re just getting started! Often we’re told to start with so much all at once, like serums, exfoliants, masks, and actives- which are all great to add to your routine eventually if necessary! But for beginners, a simple 3-step regime can work wonders for your complexion. You can achieve radiant and rejuvenated skin by prioritising cleansing, toning, and moisturising, and address common skincare concerns to embrace a fresh, luminous glow just in time for spring.
