Get your skin SPRING Ready
8 tips to ensure your skin is looking it’s best for Spring! 
Our skin can take a big hit during the yearly seasonal changes. Spring is an in-between season. Sometimes you don't know what the day will bring – sun, wind, rain, cold or hot. Not to mention that we've just come out of hibernation from the winter months  
Withstanding the sunny, windy and for those of us with allergies – the great outdoors, our skin has to make a lot of adjustments during the course of a day in spring.  
Even those with the most diligent of beauty regimes can find it difficult during the spring months to maintain that healthy glow.  
Here are our best tips to keep your pure glow during spring: 
1. Swap face wipes for a hydrating cleanser: Cold weather and central heating can take a lot of moisture out of the skin, so it’s important to incorporate some really hydrating products into your regime. A gentle, moisturising cleanser will not only keep the complexion looking fresh and healthy, but will also help the rest of your skincare work more effectively, while harsh products such as face wipes can strip the skin of its natural oils. A good cleanser a will really clear out pores, and remove all the make-up and dirt from the day. 
2. Exfoliate: The dry weather can make your skin dry and flaky. The layers of dead skin cells prevent any goodness from serums or moisturisers to penetrate your skin. The first step is to exfoliate your skin on a regular basis during spring, in some cases this can be daily or every second day. Be careful not to over-do it, you are the best judge of your skin.  Our product: Pore refining powdered exfoliant 
Avoid toxins, chemicals and irritants: After you have exfoliated your skin, it is primed to receive super nourishment. At this stage of the process, avoid chemicals, toxins and irritants at all costs.  Nourish – Your skin not only needs more moisture but needs a boost during spring. Make sure you add all the nutrients and goodness for your skin with a powerful serum before you moisturise. Our product: Blemish + Age defence serum.  
3. Hydrate your skin: Moisturise at every opportunity – as soon as you get out of the shower in the morning and throughout the day. Your skin has a tendency to dry out due to the harsh conditions during spring. You can pat some moisturiser even on top of your foundation, very gently, to combat your face drying out during the day. Our product: Hydrating Moisturiser 
4. Hydrate from the inside out – we tend drink less water in the spring months because we turn to hot drinks like cocoa and coffee, but don’t forget that you need hydration from the inside out. If you are finding it hard to drink water straight up, try water infusions – with lemon, cucumber, strawberry or any other fruit of veg you like. If you leave it the water it lightly infuses it with delicious hints of the fruit you’ve added. You can also try herbal teas and tea infusions. Have fun with it, and find out what works for you. 
5. Enhance your super food intake – experts say that the majority of your diet should be made up of vegetables and fruit. This makes so much sense on many levels. Our philosophy is that we should be eating foods as close as possible to what it looks like in its natural state. Eliminate processed foods, salt and sugar. These contain minimal nutritional value. Our bodies, our minds and our skin need antioxidants nutrient rich foods. Swap calorie rich / nutrient poor foods with a super food alternative :
  • Swap spaghetti with spiralised zucchini, carrots or cucumber  

  • Swap bacon with red algae: Often described as 'bacon flavored seaweed', red algae is the latest super-food that allows people to eat healthily without sacrificing taste. 

  • Swap cake with home made cacao chocolate, raw treats, paleo treats or raw cacao nibs - these are great source of iron, fiber and magnesium, making them a good alternative to chocolate, an ingredient for desserts or just as a healthy snack.  

  • Swap chips with baked kale chips - you can bake these yourself in the oven for about 10 minutes (depending on your oven specifications) sprinkle some turmeric or paprika for extra flavor. 

  • Swap whey protein for pea protein - pea protein looks set to become 2017's whey protein alternative, and as well as being both dairy and gluten free, it is 100 per cent vegan friendly . 

7. Keep active to boost natural radiance - It can be hard to muster up the energy for that morning run in the cold spring months. Or even an evening stroll may be the last thing you want to do when you get home from work. But being active is a proven way to boost your health and well-being, your state of mind and your natural glow. And if you've taken a break from exercise during the cold winter months, it's just so much harder to get back into it the longer you've been away from it. The thing about exercise is to try and incorporate it as much as possible into your day – this may be taking the stairs at work, walking during lunch time. Joining a gym is a great option to maintaining your exercise practice-  especially  if you are trying to get your skin, mind and body spring ready. 
8 . Sleep -  plays a vital role in good health and well-being throughout your life. Getting enough quality sleep at the right times can help protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life, and safety. The way you feel while you're awake depends in part on what happens while you're sleeping. During sleep, your body is working to support healthy brain function and maintain your physical health. Lack of sleep leaves its mark on your skin, making it more dehydrated, withdrawn, and can accentuate dark circles and wrinkles. The amount of sleep you need depends on your own biorhythms. Everyone is unique and sleep requirements vary for depending on who you are. Experts and recommend that sleeping between 6 to 10 hours a night is healthy. Your body will tell you what you need.  If sleep is eluding you at night, try some gentle mediation podcasts, try sleeping in a totally dark room, eliminate outside stimuli or anything that can make you distracted.
