You may have cleared some wardrobe space recently to make way for your spring outfits, but have you altered your skincare yet? Our skin specialist Harriet shares tips for tweaking your skincare regime to benefit your skin this season.
This will help slough away dry, dead cells that can leave skin looking dull and lacklustre. I recommend using a glycolyic or lactic acid type peel to dissolve the ‘glue’ that holds your skin cells together and reveal a healthy glow.

Revival Masque – £55

If you experienced drier skin in the winter, you may have opted for a rich cream to provide nourishment or incorporated hydrating boosters such as a serum or an additional moisturiser into your skincare regime. During the spring and summer months your skin tends to hold more water and therefore less hydration is needed. This means you can switch your richer cream for a more lightweight one and remove the hydrating booster step from your skincare routine.
As we are now seeing more daylight hours, I would like to reinforce the importance of applying SPF to protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays. You should complete your morning skincare regime with the application of a broad-spectrum SPF and this should really be worn all year round!

One final tip for those who wear make-up…
You may be opting for the natural, make-up free look at the moment but do you remember the last time you washed your brushes? I recommend washing them every 7-10 days because make-up brushes not only collect product residue, dirt and oil, but they can also harbour bacteria and cause skin rashes, breakouts and potentially harmful skin infections. You can also clean your skincare and make-up bottles with anti-bacterial wipes and leave to dry for a thorough spring clean.
