Skin Spring Clean

Hands up if you are ready to spring!

While coats and jumpers are due to hang around a bit longer, the mere promise of blooming buds is enough to whip us into a lather. But lathering is not the only self-care activity that should be considered as the days become longer.

Preparing your skin for spring involves transitioning from the cold and dry conditions of winter to the warmer and more humid weather. It is important that as each season changes you take a moment to check the health of your skin and work out what needs attention, and how your daily or weekly routine may need to alter. Consider adjusting your skincare routine to accommodate the changing climate. For example you might need to switch to lighter or oil-free products, and focus on products that balance oil production and maintain hydration.

Here are some simple suggestions to get your skin ready for spring:

  1. Exfoliate: Start by exfoliating your skin to remove dead skin cells that may have accumulated during the winter. This can help improve your skin's texture and promote a healthy glow. Adorn has developed its own dermablade tool to gently remove vellus, which we refer to as peach fuzz, and dead skin from our face. 
  2. Hydration: As the weather becomes warmer, your skin might need less heavy moisturisation compared to winter. Switch to a lighter, water-based moisturiser to keep your skin hydrated without feeling greasy. Adorn's Hydration+ Primer has the benefit of being non-comedogenic and lightweight and suits all skin types. 
  3. Sunscreen: With more sunlight during spring, it's crucial to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Start incorporating a SPF 50+ sunscreen into your daily routine. Even if you're not planning to be directly in the sun for an extended period, any exposure to UV rays can cause free radical damage. Adorn's Mineral Glow Screen has the added benefit of Hyaluronic Acid for added hydration. 
  4. Stay Hydrated: Apply additional hydration and nutrients into the skin with our Hydrating Pure Rosewater Mist throughout the day and particularly if you are inside. Artificial cooling and heating causes dehydration all year round. 
  5. Incorporate Anti-Pollution Antioxidants: Antioxidant-rich products can help protect your skin from environmental stressors and free radical damage. Look for serums or moisturisers containing ingredients like vitamin C and vitamin E. Repair damaged skin cells with Adorn's Hyaluronic Acid & Vitamin C Natural Serum. Apply to clean skin prior to your moisturiser. 
  6. Treat Skin Concerns: Spring can exacerbate certain skin concerns like allergies, acne, and increased oil production. If you have specific skin issues, consult a dermatologist for recommendations on how to manage them effectively. Adorn's wonder product, Borage & Bakuchiol is a toxin free face oil that boasts remarkable anti-pollution and anti-inflammatory effects, treating skin conditions like eczema, acne, rosacea, and seborrheic dermatitis and is included free in our NEW Season Spring Mystery Bundle. Value $135
  7. Diet and Nutrition: Eating a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and essential fatty acids can contribute to healthy skin. Foods containing antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids can help maintain your skin's natural glow.
  8. Hydrating Masks: Consider using hydrating and soothing face masks to replenish your skin's moisture levels 1-2 times per week. Look for masks with ingredients like hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, and blue cypress leaf. Rejuvenate winter skin with our Blue Cypress Dry Skin Antioxidant Clay Mask. It refines pores, balances and refreshes. 
  9. Limit Hot Showers: While it's tempting to take hot showers, especially while it is still chilly in the wee hours of the morning, they can strip your skin of natural oils, creating dry, tight skin and potentially causing capillary damage and exasperating rosacea. Opt for lukewarm showers and avoid spending too much time in hot water.
  10. Protect Your Lips: Don't forget about your lips. Use a moisturising lip balm to protect them from cracking and chapping. Embrace the power of nourishing coconut and avocado oils, and indulge in the luxury of multi-tasking beauty with Adorn's handy handbag Natural Lip Balm Trio. Perfect for long days out and about with the added bonus of colour for both lips and cheeks. 

Consistency is key to seeing positive changes in your skin. Stick to a spring routine and give new products a chance to work. Remember, everyone's skin is unique, so it's important to pay attention to how your skin responds to different products and routines. Get out and about, fill your lungs with fresh air and look forward to the sunrises that await.
