We are now well and truly into the new year and with Easter just around the corner, we can start to look forward to some brighter weather. As we say goodbye to winter and hello to spring it’s time to adapt your beauty regime accordingly. Ensure your hair and skin is beautifully healthy and glowing for spring, summer and beyond:
Winter can really dry out and damage our hair. Prepare for spring with a coconut oil overnight mask. Simply apply the oil directly to your hair and wrap it. Leave overnight and wash off in the morning. You will find your hair is left super soft and shiny!
Exfoliation is really important, especially at this time of year. Remove any dry or dead skin using a gentle scrub all over. Your skin will be fresh looking and shorts-ready in no time.
Moisturise each morning and evening after showering. Pay extra attention to problem areas, such as dry patches or scars for even smoother, softer skin.
Now is a great time to treat yourself to some new cosmetics. At the same time take a few minutes to clear out your make-up bag. Throw out expired products and any creams or formulas which have dried out. Blushers and eye shadows can be used for about a year but mascara should be replaced at least every six months. Alternatively consider semi permanent makeup for a less time-consuming look. Search online for semi permanent makeup in London and elsewhere nationwide.
Great skin care begins with three ingredients: retinoids, antioxidants and sunblock. This is the case year-round, however, while in winter you might need to use a deeply hydrating cream to deliver them. Spring and summer calls for a lighter application, such as a serum.
Even with SPF incorporated into daily moisturiser, it is important to apply an additional layer of sunblock to any exposed areas in the spring and summer months. Doing so will keep skin healthier and prevent wrinkles, keeping it looking younger for longer.
Eating healthily and drinking plenty of water is probably the most important beauty tip of all. Not only will you feel more energetic, your skin, eyes and hair will glow with health, from the inside out!
