With spring just around the corner, it’s time to update your wardrobe, shoe rack and skincare routine. It’s safe to say that most people are happy the ice-cold months are over and the season of continuous shivering has almost passed. With the temperatures rising, the sun being out more and spending a lot more time outside, it’s extremely important to take good care of your skin and prepare for spring. With the season that revolves around new life, we surely don’t wish to have dull-looking or flaky skin. Instead, we’re seeking glowing, radiant skin, especially now that we’re slowly going back to normal life and people actually get to see our face in real life. Read along to find our most helpful tips to prepare your skin for Spring 2021.
Hydrate your skin thoroughly
If you were assuming that hydrating your skin is only needed in winter, you couldn’t be more wrong. Hydrating your skin is crucial throughout every season. In fact, a moisturiser should be your top priority when it comes to updating your skincare routine. Depending on your skin type, you can choose a moisturiser that is suitable for oily skin, dry skin or simply choose one that is suitable for all skin types.
One of our favourite moisturisers is the Obagi Hydrate, which provides soft, smooth and hydrated skin for up to eight hours. Don’t forget to apply SPF on your face afterwards! A rookie mistake is thinking that SPF only needs to be applied during summer, while UV rays are harmful to your skin during winter and spring as well. Protect your skin on a daily basis and prevent signs of sunspots, hyperpigmentation and premature ageing.
Keep a youthful appearance
Aren’t we all secretly a bit scared to age? Once we get older, our skin starts to get more wrinkly, our hairs turn grey and our overall physical appearance changes. However, there are many things you can do to slow down the process of ageing. By taking good care of your skin, you can drastically reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.
Vitamin C is a natural ingredient that slows down the ageing process as it helps to build new collagen in the skin which promotes firmness and elasticity. The Obagi Professional-C Serum 15% is, if you ask us, the best Vitamin C product on the market. Depending on your skin type, you have the option to choose between 10%, 15% or even 20%. The facial serum provides strong antioxidant protection and instant radiance by brightening your skin. Because Vitamin C is a naturally occurring organic compound with antioxidant properties, it is not harmful to your skin and keeps your skin healthy and youthful-looking.
Invest in your skincare products
The worst thing you can do to your skin is buying cheap skincare products filled with harmful ingredients. This won’t help you to get clearer skin, on the contrary, it will ruin your skin completely. Your skin has to last a lifetime, literally, so it’s best to take care of it daily. Anti-ageing skincare products are, different than you might think, recommended to be used from your early twenties. From this moment, your skin will slowly start to lose collagen and its elasticity and firmness. The earlier you start with using anti-ageing skincare products, the better. After all, it’s better to prevent than to cure.
