Spring signals the start of good things. The leaves turn green, the flowers bloom, and we spend more days outdoors enjoying rooftop cinema dates and family barbeques. But it can also leave our skin feeling a little sticky, and it’s not just the ice cream melting on your hands. The sun, though lovely, can quickly get a little too hot for comfort, leaving us feeling flustered and uncomfortable. But not to worry, we’ve got a few Spring skin tips to help keep cool this season.
Spring Skin Tips #1: The Fridge Isn’t Just For Food
Storing your skin care products in the bathroom is the standard, but during the warmer months you could be forgiven for keeping a few bits and pieces in the fridge. Applying cooled products can help keep you feeling fresh, and may also help you feel more awake in the mornings. A chilled eye cream provides not just a soothing feeling, but it can also help to de-puff sleepy eyes quickly. Moisturisers and masks can also be kept in the fridge as an extra cooling treat for your skin. Be wary that some products must be kept between certain temperatures, so make sure to take a look at the storage conditions before putting your products in the fridge.
Spring Skin Tips #2: Sweat Protection
As the weather warms up some of us may be prone to a little excess perspiration. Not only is this uncomfortable, but it can also be a source of unnecessary stress and embarrassment. QV Naked Anti-Perspirant Deodorant
is available as an aerosol and a roll on, and serves the dual purpose of preventing both odour and wetness. The innovative Biosorb™ crystals inhibit the growth of odour causing bacteria leaving you feeling fresh. For best results, apply to clean dry skin after your shower for 24 hours of stress-free dryness.
Spring Skin Tips #3: Cool Off
After a hot day at the beach, or running errands, try running a cool bath with a capful of QV Bath Oil
to help cool down while restoring moisture to the skin. Take 5-10 minutes to soak in the cool water before patting skin dry and following up with a moisturiser to ensure skin stays feeling soft.
Spring Skin Tips #4: Lotion instead of cream
Slathering on a heavy cream might feel luxurious in the winter months, but in the spring and summer your skin may not need as much hydration, so switching to a light moisturising lotion for the warmer months could work better for you. A non-greasy skin lotion
will absorb quickly and leave no residue, leaving you free to get on with your day.
Spring Skin Tips #5: After Sun Spray
If your skin is still feeling a little less than cool, try misting a cooling spray over your arms and legs as a light relief from the heat. SunSense After Sun Cooling Spray
contains refreshing grape seed extract and vitamin C to help soothe and cool skin. For extra impact keep the spray in the fridge, or in the ice box if you’re enjoying a day out with the family.
With these cool
tips on your side you’re sure to stay fresh all spring long
