Spring Clean Skincare
It’s time for a Spring clean! Ditch those heavy-duty creams and get ready to upgrade to some lightweight formulas for the warmer months coming.
We’re put together some skincare tips to help you get your glow in time for Spring!
Exfoliation is amazing for removing dead skin cells from the outer layers of the skin. It can also be beneficial for removing dry skin, increasing blood circulation, brightening and improving your skin’s overall appearance.
We suggest avoiding exfoliators with harsh ingredients like apricot beads and instead seek out AHA and Lactic Acid based products for a gentler but effective alternative. This is especially great for those with more sensitive skin.
Using a toner after cleansing your skin is amazing to treat clogged pores and boost your skin’s glow! Toner’s removes any remaining dirt and impurities stuck in your pores after you wash your face. When added to your daily skincare routine and used regularly, it can have a major positive impact on the appearance and tightness of your pores (especially amazing for aging skin!)
With warmer weather on the way, it’s time to switch up your skincare routine and swap out your thick, rich winter creams for some lightweight moisturisers that can keep your skin hydrated, glowy and as fresh as possible!
For those with oily skin, look for gel-textured products that are non-comedogenic so they don’t further clog pores. Mattifying formulas are always a good option too.
If you prefer to keep the makeup more lightweight during the warmer months, we suggest considering a tinted moisturiser or tinted SPF instead of a cream foundation.
We recommend MZ Skin’s Hydrate & Nourish Age Defence Retinol Day Moisturiser SPF30.
With proven wrinkle reduction of 16.3% after 30 days, This daytime moisturiser features a pioneering combination of encapsulated (non-irritant) Retinol and SPF30 to refine the complexion and protect the skin. Retinol boosts collagen production and smooths fine lines and wrinkles. The addition of SPF 30 protects from UVA/B rays and free radical damage.
Protect your skin with SPF
Did you know, you should be using SPF not only on the sunnier days, but also on the cloudier days too? Up to 80 percent of the sun’s rays can pass through clouds, so if you assume it’s ok to ditch protection on an overcast day, think again! Our skin is susceptible to the sun's rays which can lead to health issues, discoloration, and wrinkles over time. We recommend using an SPF with a factor of at least 30 everyday.
