From guest blogger Waterlily Founder, Michelle Reeve
Great skin demands daily care, especially when we are transitioning our skin between seasons. With spring well and truly here in the southern hemisphere, it’s important to transition your skincare regime and products as you would your wardrobe, shelve the heavier products and opt for a lightweight cold pressed crème instead. Here are my top 5 tips for transforming your skincare regime for spring
Great spring skin tips from Michelle Reeve
Serums are key
With the ability to penetrate deep within the layers of your skin, nutrient rich serums containing omega 6, antioxidants, vitamins, enzymes and minerals, are vital for healthy cell function. During a change in season, such as winter to spring, we need to make sure we have an abundance of omega oils in our diets and within our skincare – think blackcurrant seeds, pomegranate seeds, primrose and rosehip oils. Try Green Tea & Rose Replenishing Day Créme enriched with antioxidants to nurture sensitive skin to a youthful and dewy softness.
Essential Oils effectively penetrate the skin and deliver concentrated doses of active ingredients, targeting skincare concerns including uneven skin tone, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, at a cellular level to transform skin leaving it refined, smooth and luminously bright.
Plant based ingredients are best
Plant based ingredients are dynamic nutrient rich powerhouses that deliver the elements necessary for healthy skin function and repair. For a formulation to be effective it needs to be drenched in cold pressed plant oils, healing herbal concentrates, hydrating floral waters, vitamin rich fruit extracts and anti-ageing essential oils (and are all easily absorbed by the skin).
Get a Facial!
Sometimes it’s best to leave it to the professionals! A great facialist will not only advise the best way to repair, replenish, heal and hydrate your skin but can also compile a homecare routine to make sure you are meeting the changing needs of your skin. Try Waterlily’s Spring Apple Collagen Spa Facial – a luxe 60minute treatment layered with organic apple concentrate, vitamin A, silk peptides, and marine collagen. Each treatment is finished with 500mg of pure vitamin C infused with this season’s botanical harvest.
Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate
In between seasons it is easy for skin to become dry and congested. Decongest skin regularly with a mineral rich clay based exfoliant, this will equalise oils and rebalance skin. Ensure skin stays super hydrated with an active botanical moisturiser – we love Daily Antioxidant Skin Boost.
