Five Rules for Sublime Spring Skincare
By Soap Blogger
At long last, the seemingly endless winter months are showing signs of abating and dreams of an inspiring spring are right at the UK’s doorstep. However, this doesn’t mean that the time has come to take a rather lackadaisical attitude toward skincare as while things may not be quite as harsh as they were at the winter’s peak, the seasonal change can wreak havoc on the skin of the ill-prepared.
So, with this in mind, here’s a quick overview of the five most important rules for sublime spring skincare as advised by leading dermatologists:
1 – Don’t Forget the Sunscreen
First of all, chances are you’ll be spending much more time outdoors during the spring which means that extra care is needed to avoid the damaging effects of the sun’s UV rays. Just because there’s still that slight nip in the air doesn’t mean that the sun isn’t doing a number on your skin, so even when it doesn’t appear to be at its strongest, be sure to apply plenty of sunscreen before heading out and about this spring.
2 – More Moisture
It’s difficult to avoid at least some skin damage occurring during the winter, which is why the spring makes the perfect time to add a little more moisture to the equation and begin the necessary repairs. From switching to organic soaps to applying lotions after every cleansing and perhaps treating yourself to an overnight hand cream, all such steps combined will build a real and lasting difference.
3 – Attack Your Allergies
As soon as the seasonal allergies kick in, chances are the affected areas of your skin will take a severe and prolonged beating. From redness around the eyes to dry skin patches to itchiness to soreness and more, perhaps one of the best skincare tips of all going into the spring months is to attack your allergies before they attack you. Experts advise not waiting until allergies flare up to make any kind of counter-strike, but rather to take a more proactive approach by seeking advice and beginning preventative measures early.
4 – Exfoliate Daily
The cold winter weather may well have left you with more dry and dead skin cells to banish than at any other time of the year, which is why this is the perfect time to get busy with a quality exfoliate. Of course, it’s crucial to choose a product that’s rich, nourishing and 100% organic also, in order to give your skin a dose of the good stuff as it gets to work.
5 – Get Active
Last but not least, it’s no secret that the most important thing in the world for healthy skin is a healthy body in general. As such, now that the winter’s over there’s absolutely no excuse whatsoever for remaining cooped-up and inactive indoors – make the effort to exercise regularly and you’ll reap an array of rewards throughout the season. Combined with a healthy daily skincare regime, even just a little light exercise on a daily basis will build toward a positive change you can both see and feel.
