5 tips for how to look after your skin this Spring!
After months of enduring the typical UK winter weather with icy temperatures, snow, slush and frosted car windscreens, it seems spring is beginning to… well, spring! As always, the spring temperatures will keep fluctuating over the next few months with highs and lows, but one thing remains the same – the need to change up your skincare routine to match the season!
Here at Bratts of Northwich, we know that you want your skin to be glowing and healthy, so we’ve rounded up 5 of our top tips and skin care products to make you feel incredible this spring.
Tip 1 | Exfoliate
Exfoliating is an essential part of your spring skincare routine. Over the winter, our skin is exposed to harsh weather, and as a result, our skin can be left dry and flaky. This flaky skin can clog up our pores leaving our skin looking dull and tired. It’s a good idea to buff and lift off those dead winter skin cells to really refresh your skin. Exfoliating is a great way to brighten your complexion and get the glow you want this season!
We have some incredible exfoliating cleansers as part of our Clarins range in store, so pop down to Bratts, and we can point you in the direction of the best product for your skin!
Tip 2 | Hydrate and moisturise
As the weather is prone to change at this time of year, it is essential we keep our skin hydrated. It’s a great idea to increase your daily water intake to stay well hydrated and our top tip is to use lighter lotions that won’t feel too heavy on those warmer days. Our incredible new Clinique ID range means you can have customised skin care entirely to suit your skin type. We have the ideal hydration for any skin type, whether you are looking to improve lines and wrinkles, pores and uneven skin texture, fatigue, irritation or an uneven skin tone. If you’re not sure which one is best for you, why not come and browse the range in store and test out the products on your skin?
In the name of hydration, our Estee Lauder ‘supercharge your radiance kit’ is also perfect for your spring skincare routine. The 6 key products will help to re-hydrate and repair any skin that has been damaged in the winter months – see below!
- Advanced Night’ Micro Cleansing Foam
- ‘Micro Essence’ Skin Activating Treatment Lotion
- ‘Advanced Night Repair’ Concentrated Recovery Powerfoil Mask
- Revitalising Supreme+’ Global Anti-Aging Cell Power Creme 15ml
- ‘Advanced Night Repair’ Synchronized Recovery Complex II Serum 7ml
- ‘Advanced Night Repair Eye’ Supercharged Complex Cream
Tip 3 | Cover up and Protect
Use SPF! Use SPF! Use SPF! We could say it a 4th time, but we won’t! But seriously, this is vital as part of your skincare routine to keep your skin looking healthy in spring. In fact, SPF to protect your skin against the sun’s rays is essential for any season, but as the sun starts to make an appearance, it is even more critical that you are covering up and protecting your skin against harmful rays and damage.
Luckily for our lovely customers, here at Bratts we have the best products for skincare in Northwich. Our Clinique range has fabulous luxury products perfect to use as your daily sunscreen. We have City Block which is a sheer, broad-spectrum UVA/UVB daily sunscreen. This lightweight formula will help to wick away perspiration and absorb excess oil. You can wear this alone or as an invisible makeup primer, and it works wonders even for sensitive skin. We have many other products in store for helping protect your skin against the sun so feel free to come and take a look!
Tip 4 | Use Makeup more sparingly
When spring comes around, we can start to throw open the windows, let the stuffy air out of the house and bring fresh air in. Spring is also the perfect time to allow your skin to breathe too. Our Clarins ‘Ready in a Flash Eyes & Brows Palette’ is ideal for this year’s more ‘natural’ beauty trend and will help you brighten and sculpt for those selfie ready eyes. We love this lightweight palette as it perfectly illuminates your eyes to match the brighter days with a range of matte and iridescent shades. Drawing attention to your eyes means you don’t have to wear as much foundation or product on your skin and this can really work wonders for your complexion.
If you still want to put a simple layer on for a confidence boost and to achieve that flawless look, make sure to choose a foundation with SPF. Our in store Estee Lauder range has foundations that will make you look gorgeous as well as helping to care for your skin against the sun.
Tip 5 | Spring clean and try something new
Spring cleaning is such a feel-good activity. It’s fantastic to throw out all those old bits and bobs we don’t have any use for and give our house a new lease of life! But, why stop at just cleaning out your cupboards? Apply the spring clear out to your skincare routine too! Make sure to clean any makeup brushes properly; you can see how to do that in this article by allure! We also recommend that you refresh your skincare products to check their best before dates. Have a clear out of any products that you don’t use that have been sitting at the back of the bathroom cupboard and then treat yourself to something new this season!
