Seasonal Skin Care Routine
Did you know that you should change your skin care routine seasonally?
As summer is around the corner, we have caught up with Sally our Spa Manager for her top tips to ensure your skin is looking its best.
1. Clean your skin
This may seem very obvious, but few treat themselves to a good cleanser. Double cleansing your skin should be an essential part of your daily routine and having a cleanser which deep cleanses and benefits your skin is a must. Our therapists at Lea Marston absolutely love the Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm, not only does it melt away makeup and impurities, but it also acts as a nourishing mask. However, when I am in a rush, I use the Pro- collagen Energising Marine Cleanser, it helps reduce excess oil and my skin feels rebalanced and invigorated.
2. Scrub your winter skin away
Spring has arrived and summer is around the corner, it’s time to work on brightening your skin. Ensure you exfoliate your skin at least once a week. Using a more abrasive exfoliator like Elemis Skin Buff is advised a couple of times a week where as less abrasive exfoliator's like Elemis Gentle Rose you can use up to 3 times a week - why not ask one of our skin care specialists to advise which exfoliator suits you better.
3. HYDRATION IS KEY
After months of cold weather, it’s time to drench our skin with the hydration it needs. Drinking plenty of water has full body benefits, with adding a facial oil after cleansing and toning, It helps minimise the look of dullness and enhances skin radiance for a glowing complexion.
Our therapists recommend the Elemis Superfood Facial Oil, this product is Light, non-greasy and easily absorbed, this nourishing facial oil helps to plump and smooth. It minimises the look of dullness and enhances skin radiance for a glowing complexion.
Keeping it simple, I recommend Elemis Pro Collagen Marine Cream Ultra-Rich. This supremely decadent moisturiser Intensely hydrates dehydrated skin whilst reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
4. AN SPF IS A MUST!
Wearing an SPF formula protects the skin against UVA and UVB rays and environmental pollution.
We recommend wearing an SPF facial moisturiser all year round. If this is not something you currently do then start to wear one now. Spring is the perfect time when we are spending more time outdoors with the sun shining (hopefully).
You can purchase moisturisers with a built in SPF such as Elemis Pro Collagen Marine Cream SPF 30
Or add Elemis Daily Defence Shield SPF 30 to your regime.
Smooth a pea-sized amount over your face after applying your daily moisturiser.
Re-apply throughout the day to maintain protection, especially after swimming or perspiring.
Don't forget the main 3 steps to your skin care routine at night too;
