10 Tips for Springtime Dewy Skin
Spring is just around the corner and it is finally time to kiss the winter blues goodbye and get ready for dewy skin season. Here are 10 tips to get rid of dull, leathery skin and welcome back your baby-soft glow!
1. Don’t Skip Sunscreen
Sunscreen isn’t only for the hot summer days. Even the pleasant springtime sunshine contains harmful UV rays that can damage your skin. The L’Oréal Paris UV Perfect Matte & Fresh is a lightweight sunscreen containing mattified kaolin clay that absorbs excess sweat, keeping it from clogging your pores. This makes it a perfect sunscreen for the Indian weathers, even in places that have very high humidity
2. Swap Your Face Cream
With the weather outside getting warmer, it is time to swap your extra-rich winter cream to one that feels light on your skin. The L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro-Essence has a unique water-like consistency that is lightweight, helping it get easily absorbed in the skin. The Micro-Essence penetrates up to 10 skin layers to reveal bright, radiant, crystal clear skin with improved moisture retention. It also contains salicylic acid that accelerates skin renewal & mildly exfoliates to refine pores & skin texture
3. Scrub Away The Dead Skin
There's nothing better than a good scrub to get rid of skin-dulling dead cells that suffocate the epidermis. Give your face and body a weekly, gentle, tip to toe scrub. Apply it using circular movements, paying attention to any rough areas such as your heels, elbows, and knees.
4. Moisturize Your Body
Apply a body lotion or a body oil morning and night for baby-soft limbs. If your skin is really parched after the cold winter months, opt for a body balm or butter. Apply it for a few weeks to deeply nourish and moisturise your skin
5. Hydrate Your Lips
Use a moisturizing lip-balm to repair the chapped winter-lips and protect them from any further damage. Look for lip-balms with SPF for an added layer of protection from the sun.
6. Upgrade Your Makeup
Try a dewy foundation that adds a subtle glow to your skin, making it look healthy and fresh. You can also use BB creams which feel light on your skin and give it a more natural finish. Switch the dark plum and maroon lipsticks of winter to warmer peaches and pinks for the spring.
7. Give Your Hands Some TLC
Winter's harsh weather often leaves us with dry and chapped hands. Apply a fine grain scrub a couple of times a month, moisturise them daily, and massage them to bring back the softness. Give them a springtime manicure, layer on a colourful nail paint, and embrace spring with beautiful hands.
8. Don’t Neglect Your Feet
It’s time to bring out your strappy sandals after months of wearing closed-toe shoes and socks during the winters. To get your feet spring-ready, give your toenails a clip, soak your feet in a bowl of warm water and gently rub them down with a pumice stone - heels in particular. Follow with a moisturiser for super-soft feet!
9. Clean Your Makeup Brushes
Spring cleaning is not just applicable to your closet and your home. Give all your makeup brushes and tools a good deep clean to rid them of all the makeup, dirt, and bacteria they have collected over the months. Wash your brushes with a mild facial cleanser and leave them to dry for at least 24 hours.
10. Eat Fresh Produce
Healthy skin is the result of a healthy body. Snack on fresh fruits throughout the day and include a lot of vegetables in your diet. Fruits and vegetables are a great source of fibre, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that fuel your body and nourish your skin.
With the season transitioning from dark and gloomy to warm and sunny, your skincare and beauty routine needs to transition too. To keep up with your skin’s changing needs, follow these 10 simple tips and achieve healthy, dewy skin all throughout spring.
