As you bid farewell to your cosy hats, snug scarves, and trusty down coats, it’s high time to turn your attention towards refining not just your wardrobe but also your skincare regimen.

Thankfully, the transition from the frosty embrace of winter to the gentle embrace of spring isn’t as abrupt as some seasonal shifts can be. Nevertheless, it’s crucial to be attentive to your skin's needs whenever there's a notable change in the weather. With shifting environments, your skin craves a different kind of care.

While a complete overhaul of your skincare routine may not be necessary, a few thoughtful adjustments can work wonders in revitalizing your skin after enduring the trials of winter.

1)Exfoliate your skin to remove the lingering layer of winter

When temperatures rise again, it is important to ramp up your exfoliation routine if you have taken a break due to winter irritation. Using a gentle formula on the face and body can help restart your routine without causing any irritation and sweep away any excess dead skin that have built up over the winter months on both the face and body.

Our Resurfacing Facial Toner can help you reveal a more radiant, refreshed and brighter complexion after a long episode of winter dryness. This expertly created, dermatologist approved formula has been designed to sweep away dry, dull and dead skin cells to promote a more even, light reflective complexion.

Our Smoothing Body Exfoliant exfoliates, softens skin and smooths post-winter skin while moisturising for up to 8 hours. Biodegradable Bamboo Granules and Alpha Hydroxy Therapy physically and chemically exfoliate above and below the skin’s surface.

2) Hydrate yourself.

Maintaining hydration is as crucial for your skin during spring as it is during winter. Spring is all rejuvenation, and water is essential for restoring skin health. Aim for eight glasses or two litres daily to ensure your skin stays radiant this season. Remember: hydration equals glowing spring skin.

3) Use a lighter moisturizer.

Spring weather means humidity and rain, which can leave you with slick, greasy looking skin. AMELIORATE suggests our Replenishing Cream to help restore the skin without clogging the pores. It helps skin feel protected from environmental aggressors for a healthier-looking complexion that feels comforted and calmer whilst nourishing the skin's natural moisture barrier. Our daily face cream delivers instant and long-lasting moisturisation to nourish and soothe dry and sensitive post-winter skin.

If you used a heavy body cream during the winter, you should opt to switch to a lotion, as you would your facial moisturiser.

Your body also needs a little extra attention after a cold winter. A lotion with urea and natural moisturizing factors to get rid of dry scales and lackluster appearance, like our hero Transforming Body Lotion is ideal to hydrate and exfoliate in time for spring. Our Illuminating Glow Formula is ideal for illuminating your spring bodycare routine, charged with pearl particles to give your body an instant glow all year round.

4) Give your makeup a spring clean.

You've probably heard of spring cleaning, but you probably haven't though to apply it to your bathroom cabinet or dressing table. Expired products and dirty brushes can wreck havoc on your skin and undo all your hard work. Set aside some time to toss or clean your products, so you know what you need to replace later on. Make sure your products aren't expired or open too long — there's usually an expiration on the bottle.

You should be cleaning your makeup brushes often regardless, but if you've left it too long (as we all do sometimes) take some time to thoroughly wash your brushes and throw away the ones that are unsalvageable as necessary.

5) Switch up your cleanser.

One aspect worth considering is your choice of cleanser. Spring typically calls for a minimalist approach, so a gentle single cleanse should suffice for in the spring months.

AMELIORATE Resurfacing Facial Cleanser works to gently exfoliate skin, cleansing away dirt, makeup and impurities to unveil a softer, smoother surface. Perfect for dry and sensitive skin types after the cold spells, the formula is designed to replenish with moisture and help support the skin's natural barrier. Featuring a blend of shea butter and cotton seed oil, the cleanser works to nourish skin in need of gentler care.
