Spring is on its way which means now is the perfect time to refresh and renew your skincare routine.
Out with the old…
Start your spring skincare clean by getting to know your products’ period after opening (PAO) symbols. A PAO symbol looks like the one above and tells you the time frame you should use your product within once you open it. For example, the PAO symbol above shows ‘6M’ which means your product should be used within 6 months of opening. This is especially important when using products with active ingredients; once products are opened and exposed to air and light, their ingredients will start to become less active so make sure use them in the time frame stated to get the best results!
In with the (re-)new…
As we start to shed our winter layers and look forward to brighter days, we also want to reflect this in our skin. A great way to gently remove dead skin cells and target dull looking skin is by using a peel. We love Natura Bissé exfoliating products as they offer something for everyone:
Diamond glyco extreme peel
A highly effective yet non-aggressive treatment which works to renew the skin’s surface layer to reveal a radiant, healthy, polished looking complexion whilst also working to firm and restore without disturbing the skin’s natural balance.
How to use:
Use 2 x per week for a 6-week period.
Start by applying the product to your t-zone then onto cheeks and facial contours and finish by applying to your neck and décolletage.
Leave to work for 15 minutes then remove with a damp facial cloth or sponge.
NB.Ceutical Tolerance Enzyme Peel
Great for treating sensitive skins! This peel delicately exfoliates without abrasion or irritation to promote a fresh, radiant appearance.
How to use:
Apply a thin layer onto clean skin and massage it in.
Don’t forget apply the product on your neck and décolletage!
Allow the product to work for 3-5 minutes and then remove with damp facial cloth or sponge.
Diamond Instant Glow Express Mini Lift
Our favourite express mini facial that leaves skin glowing, lifted and firmer in a matter of minutes.
The mini facial involves 3 easy steps:
Step 1 – Peel
Apply the contents of the peel ampoule onto clean, dry skin. Allow to work for 8 minutes then remove with warm water and facial cloth.
Step 2 – Radiance
Gently massage the contents of the radiance ampoule onto face, neck & décolletage until completely absorbed.
Step 3 – Lift
Apply the contents of the lift ampoule onto the skin by using light tapping motions, allow the skin to dry completely before applying serums, moisturisers and make-up (should you wish to apply it).
As the weather starts to get warmer you may want something to help refresh and cool your skin throughout the day. We highly recommend using a facial mist which can instantly revitalise the skin when you are on the go. Here’s our top 3 facial mists:
Natura Bissé C+C Vitamin Splash
Not only is this spray great for refreshing the face, but it can also be used to revitalise and hydrate the body and hair too. The beautifully uplifting Mediterranean citrus scent released upon application will also leave you feeling energised and rejuvenated.
Environ Focus Care Comfort+ Complete Anti-pollution Spritz
Stressed and dehydrated skin? This spritz is a great pick me up on bare skin or on top of makeup. The lightweight spray rebalances the skin microbiome and provides powerful antioxidant protection against the harmful effects of pollution and free radical damage caused by blue light emitted from smartphones, tablets and laptops.
Jane Iredale Pommisst
This facial spray not only smells wonderful, but also hydrates and conditions all skin types. It quickly delivers powerful antioxidants into the skin to create a healthier complexion while also reducing and calming inflammation. You can also use it to set your foundation and help to minimise pores and fine lines.
Finally, no matter what season we are in you should always protect your skin daily with SPF! Remember to check your sun protection product’s PAO and their expiry date too. There is no protection from out-of-date sun protection!
