• Prepping Your Skin for Spring/Summer

March 08, 2017

Spring is on the way, you can feel it in the air! We are excited to start seeing glimpses of sunshine and blue sky. While the warmer months are not here yet, now is the perfect time to prepare for the change in season and heal your skin from the harsh winter weather that caused dryness and dullness. The warmer summer months with high level of humidity and skin sweat will be soon upon us and will make it hard to work out rich moisturizers and liquid foundation and make up. So get your skin in shape and glowing just on time for the summer fun!

What does that mean? Scrub off that layer of dry dead skin and replenish your skin with hydration, skin vitamins and rejuvenating oils. There is no secret in here. Once you understand how skin works and know the best protocol for a good skin regimen, you will be able to adapt your products and daily routine perfectly.

  1. Exfoliate of course!

There is nothing more important than exfoliation to remove those thick layers of dead, dry skin and reveal a younger fresh new skin. Skin will look healthier and more radiant but also will absorb much better super charged moisturizers and natural skin vitamins that you are about to apply. Chose an adapted exfoliator for your skin type. 

  1. Replenish your depleted skin moisture level

While hydration would be less of a concern in the humid summer months. Right now you need a super good moisturizer to carry you through the remaining months but also to replenish lost moisture from the winter season. Everyone should have a go to daily moisturizer. While choosing your moisturizer think of your skin type, do you have combination skin that feels sometimes oily sometimes dry or that feels in some spots oily and in others dry? In that case chose a balancing moisturizer that will regulate your sebum but also review your cleansing routine, are your dry spots the results of dead flaky skin that just need exfoliation?

Our go to moisturizers for combination skin- will be hands down PAI Geranium and Thistle Rebalancing Day Cream and for skin that need an added anti aging system in their moisturizer Tata Harper Rebuilding Moisturizer.

For dry and dehydrated skin- first make sure that your cleanser is not causing added dryness to your skin. Also ensure that you use a good hydrating rebalancing toner post cleansing. Then look at your moisturizer. You need a richer moisturizer, such as Tata Harper Repairative Moisturizer which is a sophisticated, advanced version of a regular moisturizer with anti aging benefits and plumping effect. Its is packed with high quality hyaluronic acid and natural humectant for daily super charged hydration.

For oily skin and blemish prone skin- first make sure you are exfoliating and deep cleansing the proper way for you as other skin types also need a moisturizer for a well balanced plumped skin. PAI Geranium and Thistle Rebalancing Day Cream will work well for you as well as Tata Harper Rebuilding Moisturizer. If your skin is prone to blemishes use Tata Harper Clarifying Moisturizer that will provide long lasting lightweight hydration with a matte finish while balancing.

  1. Rejuvenate with a night oil

Night oils are the new craze in clean beauty. They are like vitamins for the skin. They are essential in supporting the regeneration process and health of your skin. They work best at night while you are sleeping to heal and infuse your skin with the proper nutrients it needs to stay healthy, become more resilient and look more radiant and youthful. Their long-term effect is what really make them special as they contribute to stronger and healthier building blocks for your skin. There is an array of night oils to choose from. Find the one most suitable to your skin type, age and needs. They are also a wonderful addition to any skincare routine as they bring a feeling of peace, relaxation and selfcare that will enhance your wellbeing. Check below our collection of night oil or pass by the store if you need help in selecting. Always select a high grade natural oil system.

  1. Don’t forget your hands and lips!

And always always drink plenty of water. If I can suggest getting plenty of sleep before the crazy summer nights? Not sure that would work for most of us but worth the shot! ;)
