If last weekend is anything to go buy then Spring has officially sprung. Revamping your skincare for the change in weather is the best way to leave behind those winter skin woes and start switching the skin up ready for your summer glow.

Light Moisturiser

Pop those heavy night creams to the back of your skincare wardrobe and bring out lighter moisturisers. The skin can get oilier during the transition period of the weather gets milder. The help balance out the skin opt for a lighter lotion instead of a cream and

Exfoliate More

In the winter the skin become dull and scaly. Scrubbing the skin will help remove dead skin cells and help give you a radiant glow. Id recommend using a nice gentle exfoliater a few times a week to reduce sebum and stimulate the natural cell renewal process.

SPF

In theory you should be wearing SPF all year round. I know I'm guilty of now following that one! The skin gets more sensitive in the spring due to the increase in sun exposure. So to protect yourself invest in a good facial SPF - Having a dedicated SPF facial to add into your skincare routine will help you remind you to put it on

Spray on Toner

The ultimate pick me up for tired and winter bashed skin is a good toner. A spritz of a light, refreshing and revitalising toner before popping makeup and skincare on will refresh and pep up the face. Look for ones that have cooling and calming elements to the formula.

Try:  The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist
