Your Spring Skin Checklist

It’s spring, time to look at your skin and give it a re-boot.

As the weather  warms up, it’s time to step up your beauty routine and clean away the winter blues.

From head to toe, we have searched for the best spring prep beauty products which smooth, freshen, and make your skin glow for spring.

Before starting any skincare routine, you should always cleanse away excess makeup and dirt with a good cleanser both morning and night to ensure you start with a fresh palette. This also allows the skin to soak up all the delicious nutrients you use to manage your skin.

IT Cosmetics are releasing a beautiful new cleanser called ‘Confidence in a Cleanser’ in late September. It will be available at all Sephora stores across Australia and it’s a must-have cleanser to add to your list. Completely chemical-free and cruelty-free, this brand delivers rich hydrating nutrients and vitamins to your skin whilst cleansing.

Another effective way to cleanse your skin is with a clay mask. After washing away any makeup, apply your favourite clay mask and let it sink into your pores for at least three minutes. We love the new green clay mask by Cedar and Stone Botanicals. The clay grabs onto any dirt stuck deep into the pores & pulls it out when you wash the mask off. Clay masks are also a great way to stabilise any skin conditions.

Scrub away dead skin cells:

Exfoliating all year around is important, as it help promote the growth of new skin cells. After winter, when your skin has been dry and combating the dehydration caused from heaters and zapped of nourishment from all the wind, it’s super important to up your anty on exfoliation in Spring, so your skin is ready for summer.

The DMK Quick Peel ($195) helps cleanse the skin of dead skin cells and has been specially formulated to alleviate skin inflammation, brighten skin tone and clarify any hyper-pigmentation of the skin.

If peels aren’t your thing, The Daylesford Apothecary have released a beautiful Citrine Face Scrub ($22) made from some of the most natural ingredients possible. The scrub is gentle enough to use daily if necessary and smelling good enough that you’ll want to use it everyday for its therapeutic benefits.

Rejuvaphyl have developed a stunning Enzyme Exfoliating Cleanser ($52) designed to exfoliate deep into the cells of the skin, leaving it feeling smooth and revitalised.

For those of you who like a deep exfoliation and skin which isn’t too sensitive, Organic Nation have created a beautiful Black Rice Scrub ($53) which helps to detoxify pores without any irritation.

Nourish and Hydrate:

You should always use a mask after exfoliating. Why? To help the boost, nourish and support the growth of new skin cells after cleaning away all the old dead ones. Skinvitals Cosmeceuticals have released a spectacular range of sheet masks to help you combat any troubling skin concerns, from blocked pores to dehydration.

These masks are made from 100% cotton are a two step process, where you apply a pre-mask serum before applying the mask – the results are incredible.

We are loving their Detox mask which helps with congested, dull and fatigued skin and the Glow mask which reduces dark spots and clears uneven skin tones.

Each mask is $12.95 each. For a deeper pore cleanse, try Cedar + Stone’s natural botanical based Kaolin Clay mask with Turmeric ($30) designed to help cleanse the skin of dirt and shrink the pores for smooth and healthy-looking skin.

If you’re looking for something stronger, DMK Beauty Spa Sydney offer their signature Enzyme Therapy for $180. The treatment takes approximately 45-minutes and helps to evoke capillary dilation, reverse osmosis and detoxify the skin leaving it feeling rejuvenated and ready to face the warmer weather.

Tone and Moisturise:

Toners are seriously understated when it comes to skincare, as most don’t realise how much your skin can benefit from using one. Not only do they prep the skin for products applications after a good cleanse and exfoliation, toner also helps reduce the appearance of pores by shrinking them.

Raw Organic Skincare have a deliciously smelling Restore Toner ($25) made with Calendula and Cucumber to help with redness, inflammation and sooth the skin for a glowing complexion.

For extra hydration before applying your moisturiser, use a face oil to lock in moisture and keep skin smooth and glowing.

Youth to the People have just released their Macqui + Acai Prickley Pear Goji Face Oil ($40), Using rare super-berries this face oil will not only hydrate the skin, but load up the cells with much needed antioxidants. This oil can be used both morning and night.

If you prefer to use face oils only at night, try Organic Nation’s Supernatural 8 Recovery Oil; which can even be used as your night moisturiser.

Or try Joboba’s Oil Skin Balancer ($39.95) which has been clinically proven to reduce pores, improve skin texture and help reduce excess oil production.

Finish off your skin night routine with Organic Nation’s Absolute Night Cream ($132) and for day with the Hydrating Day Cream ($90).

Filled with ingredients like Kakadu Plum, Jojoba Oil, Essential Oils and Botanical you will noticeably see differences in skin texture by combining these two very potent, but natural beauty skincare items.

Don’t forget the rest of your body:

Now that you have taken care of your face, make sure to remember your body will need a little extra tend and care after winter.

If the invitations to your spring events are already coming in, head to DMK Beauty Spa Sydney for a Body Sculpting Treatment ($220). Body sculpting can provide an aesthetic result by tightening and toning the body, which is perfect for helping you squeeze into your cute cocktail dress.
