Isn’t Spring bloomin’ brilliant?! We’ve just escaped the harsh, cold winter months and now the days will start to get longer and warmer. The countryside bursts into life as the natural world is reinvigorated and from here on out it can only get better.
But before you start to enjoy all the beauty that spring brings, it’s time to think about what winter has done to your skin, and what needs to change for spring. The routine that helped you get through the winter will no longer do; different conditions need a different approach to keep your skin looking fit, fresh, and healthy as we move into the hotter months.
Sounds way too easy, right? Well, that’s because it is! Keeping your body hydrated is one of the most important things you can do this spring because the more water you drink, the easier it’ll be to prevent dry, flaky skin.
You may have tried your absolute best to keep your skin silky smooth during winter, but chances are there’ll be the odd dry patch here and there. But fear not, it’s pretty easy to ensure the winter woes are washed away. All you need to do is gentle wet your face with lukewarm water, massage a cleansing wash – such as NIVEA MEN Exfoliating Face Scrub Protect & Care – into your skin and then rinse off. Quick and easy, this wash containing hero ingredient, aloe vera, will help to remove excess oils and dirt from your skin and beard hair.
SPF is key as we move into the hotter months. Everyone loves the sun, right? But UV rays are dangerous and will cause damage to your face. Using UV protection daily is one of the best ways to help maintain youthful and radiant skin.
Lots of moisturisers and tinted moisturisers will say they have SPF already in them. But the sheer amount of product you would have to put on your face for it to reach the required level of protection is far more than you would think. We take skincare very seriously, therefore we don’t waste time or mislead consumers but putting a smidge of SPF in our products. We would recommend you use something like ANTI-AGE HYALURON FACE MOISTURISING CREAM SPF 15 which you’ll need to apply daily.
Using a heavy moisturiser can start to leave a slightly greasy layer on your skin as we move into the warmer months. Using a lighter moisturiser will keep your skin fit, fresh, and healthy without weighing it down. Our Shameless Perfection® Tinted Moisturiser is a light everyday moisturiser with a touch of colour to help even out your skin tone.
Last but not least, have a little groom. Winter will have been as hard on your hair and nails as it has been on your skin. Give your hair a little snip to get rid of the split ends and groom your nails to complete the refresh – made a lot easier with our Oscar Nail Grooming Kit. AND you could even show off your style in a slightly differently with our Limitless® Nail Ink range.
Now you’re ready for warmer days and longer nights.
