Just like you change your wardrobe to fit with spring, you should also be adjusting the products you use to protect your skin!

 

The sun’s ultraviolet rays during spring and summer, are a main factor when it comes to the cause of wrinkles as well as the signs of aging, spots, dryness and roughness. To protect your skin, it’s always a good idea to use a sun screen with a SPF of at least 30 in your daily routine.

 

Here are 3 ways you can ensure your skin is ready for whatever spring throws at it:

 

1) Change your moisturiser…

In winter, a full-coverage and hydrating formula works for your skin, when it comes to spring it’s entirely different. During spring your skin gets less dehydrated as the air is more humid – so a lightweight moisturiser will work better for your skin! 

 

2) Drink lots of water…

As much as you can! A healthy person needs 30 to 50 ounces of fluid per day. “Drinking fluids is crucial to staying healthy and maintaining the function of every system in your body, including your heart, brain, and muscles”. Staying hydrated can be beneficial to you if you’re prone to headaches or migraines during spring (and summer!) so make sure you have a bottle of water on you throughout the day!

3) Use a lighter foundation…

Not it terms of shade, but by opting for a BB or CC cream;

BB, or Beauty Balm, is a tinted moisturiser, with a bit more coverage and further benefits than a regular moisturiser.A BB cream contains priming properties, SPF filters and sometimes even a wrinkle reduction effect!

CC, or Colour Correct, has a bit more of a natural coverage than the BB cream, while remaining a lighter alternative for foundation. It conceals and primes problemed skin whilst colour correcting areas.
