Transitioning from winter to spring means an updated skincare routine. Spring cleaning is not a term that only applies to your house and wardrobe, but also skincare products. It’s time to swap the heavy, thick, rich creams with active ingredients that target specific concerns and lightweight formulas that pair well with your spring makeup looks. This is the season when you should opt for skincare that heals all the possible damage that winter has caused, while also preparing the skin for summer.
Aside from your regular end-of-season face treatments, these are some of the skincare products that you have to invest in for a radiant, healthy glow.
1. Light Moisturiser
Once the temperatures rise, there is no need to slather heavy moisturiser on your face anymore. During spring the weather is much warmer, plus the humidity in the air is much higher. This is a season that requires a lightweight moisturising formula that both replenishes, nurtures the skin and is not too heavy. When the cold days are gone, the skin simply starts to create more oil, while also keeping in moisture much better.
It’s very common for the skin to go through changes and feel dehydrated once warmer days arrive. If you ever get this sensation, the Natralus Intensive Skin Therapy Pure Moisturising Lotion is the perfect solution offering whisper-light hydration and packed with rich, nourishing ingredients that will heal your skin. It’s crucial that you properly replenish the skin barrier with an intensive treatment so that you can get that radiant complexion.
On days and nights when your skin feels properly hydrated, all you need is a little boost of long-lasting, ultra-light hydration to keep the glowing appearance. The Natralus Natural Gentle Moisturiser is amazing for all skin types, including sensitive, and perfect for face, body and hands.
A light and nourishing moisturiser is the best transitional product from winter to summer that you need to get. It won’t clog your pores when the weather is hot outside, plus it sits much better under makeup. Don’t forget that a quality moisturizer is one of the most essential products to invest in year-round. A lightweight formula should be incorporated in your day and nighttime regimen, leaving the skin fresh and glowing.
2. Aloe Vera
Protecting your skin from sun damage is one of the most important things you need to keep in mind, especially during spring and summer. When winter is over, the sun exposure increases which means you’ll need to be extra careful about protection and treatment. Aside from a broad-spectrum quality SPF, all of us need a product that will help the skin heal after a hot day outside.
It doesn’t matter if you forgot to apply SPF or simply spent too much time out on the sun, soothing and hydrating the skin is the next step you need to take. If you look at the Natralus Soothing Skin Relief Hydrating Gel, you’ll see that it features 99% aloe vera in the ingredient list. Aloe vera is one of the best soothing and restoring natural ingredients that will treat damaging effects caused by UV rays and wind. At the same time, it boosts the hydration, it’s amazing for all skin types, has a cooling effect, and can help fade dark spots.
3. Healthy Lips
What most people forget about as a part of their skincare is properly treating and protecting the lips. Rich, nourishing lip balms and butters should become a staple in your routine. The dry winter weather can leave your lips chapped and super-dry, that is why you should opt for a rich treatment.
Healthy lips will further enhance your great complexion, makeup application will be much smoother and easier, or you can even go for a makeup-free vibe with just a subtle glow on the lips. The best products for this purpose are the Natural Paw Paw Lip Butter Strawberry or the Natralus Natural Paw Paw Lip Butter. Whenever you feel like your pout is getting dry dab a little balm or butter, and you’re ready to go.
Pampering your face with quality natural products that are suitable for the season is the best way to achieve glowing skin. Switching from heavy formulas to lightweight creams, moisturisers and serums, is key for warmer days. Once the sun exposure increases, think about sun protection and including products that will further soothe and calm the skin. And last, but not least, invest in a quality lip product that will give you a healthy pout to match the radiant skin.
With these three products, you will not only improve the overall appearance of your skin after a long, cold winter, but you will also feel much more confident to get out of the house without a drop of makeup on your face.
