Switch Up Your Skincare Regime for Spring
Spring has officially sprung! The mornings are getting lighter, the days are getting longer and the sun is finally making an appearance again. It also means it’s time to switch up your skincare routine!
Your skins needs vary from season to season, so it's super important to tweak your regime to ensure it's getting exactly what it needs. During the winter months, the cold climate sucks moisture from the skin, leaving it dry and in need of an extra moisture boost, so you probably found yourself upgrading to a heavier moisturiser. Now that the weather is warming up, you can ease off the hydration and switch to a more lightweight but equally nourishing regime.
Equally, spring is a great time to up your exfoliation game. Its time to buff away the dead skin cells that have built up over the winter months with a skin polishing exfoliator, to brighten and resurface your skin.
Here are our top skincare switches to make for spring…
1. Reach for a Lotion over a Butter
So what’s the difference between a body butter and a lotion?
The biggest difference between body lotion and body butter is texture. A body lotion tends to have a higher water content and more liquid consistency, while the latter is usually thicker and creamier (like, butter). Body butters also may have a higher concentration of heavy moisturisers, while body lotions are typically formulated with lightweight hydrators. Both Grace Cole Body Butters and Grace Cole Body Lotions contain Shea Butter, to provide and lock in moisture. Our Body Lotions are perfect for your Spring skincare regime, as they are Velvety-rich, indulgently creamy and absorb beautifully, leaving skin soft, supple and hydrated.
2. Time to glow
If your skin is looking a little dull, it might be time to up your exfoliation routine. Opt for a dual-purpose exfoliator, like Grace Cole Radiance Body Scrubs, that deliver skin nourishing benefits whilst buffing away dead skin cells. The formula of our Vanilla Blush & Peony Radiance Body Scrub combines the antioxidant properties of Peony Root extract and the soothing effects of Aloe Vera Leaf Juice to provide and lock in moisture. The buffing grains in our Body Scrubs are made of biodegradable eco beads containing Sweet Almond Shell, to gently exfoliate and leave skin looking smooth and radiant. Try introducing an exfoliator to your bath or shower routine 1-2 times a week at first, before building up if required.
3. A Mist of Moisture
The key to a good Spring skincare regime is adding hydration to your complexion without overloading it. Try introducing a mist to spritz throughout the day. Grace Cole Refreshing Body Mists are perfect to deliver a burst of hydration to the skin throughout the day, plus they will leave your skin beautifully fragranced.
