1. Spring Clean Your Skincare
Consider springtime your cue to give your skin and body care collection a little spring clean.
Wash or swap out facial cloths, clean any tools, and scrap anything that is past its expiration date! Look for a symbol with an open jar, which is usually on the bottom of the packaging. For example, ‘12m’ means your product is fine to use for 12 months after you open it. Just remember that even if a product is unopened, ingredients may become less effective over time. So, it might be time to give that two-year-old moisturiser the boot.
That feels better, doesn’t it?! Now it’s time to prepare your spring skincare routine…
2. Deep Clean Your Skin with the Right Cleanser
It’s not just your clutter that needs attention; your skin deserves a refresh, too.
Look for multi-tasking cleansers like our deluxe Hydra-Collagen Replenishing Cream Cleanser. This soap-free, non-foaming cream cleanser is specifically formulated to help reinforce the skin’s natural barrier, so your skin is left feeling soft, supple, and comfortable, never tight.
If your skin is on the oily/combination side, or looking a little dull following the winter months, opt for the Lactic Acid Resurfacing Facial Wash. Formulated with gently exfoliating Lactic Acid and multi-fruit AHA’s from Pineapple, Papaya, Apple and Orange enzymes.
3. Spring Calls for a Lighter Moisturiser
Using a lightweight moisturiser is one of our top spring skincare tips. Why? As temperatures increase, so does our skin’s oil production. Switch to lighter moisturisers like our signature moisturising gels. They are sheer, water-based formulas that effectively hydrate skin and won’t clog pores or leave skin feeling greasy.
Our favourites for spring?
The skin-quenching Cucumber Moisturising Gel is a weightless, cooling gel formulated to flood skin with hydration on the face and body. Achieve a smoother, brighter complexion that feels plump and looks dewy.
The powerful Rosehip Oil Moisturising Gel will help hydrate, brighten and replenish skin on the face and body. Blended with Rosehip Oil and Vitamins A, C and E, this gel moisturiser has potent antioxidant benefits, to boost skin’s luminosity and help filter out environmental aggressors. For a smooth, youthful-looking and even complexion.
4. Exfoliate Away Dull Winter Skin
As the weather warms up it is likely we will show a little more skin. So don’t forget to show the skin on your body some love this spring. SBC has skincare for you to use all over your body to help you wave goodbye to dry, flaky winter skin. Instead of harsh scrubs why not use a chemical exfoliation on your body.
Our Salicylic Body Wash is enriched with powerful skin-smoothing actives including Salicylic Acid and a fruity AHA blend of Pineapple, Apple, Papaya and Sweet Orange enzymes. This body wash gently exfoliates and loosens dirt and oils, to reduce blocked pores and congestion whilst helping to brighten and even skin tone.
Effortlessly reveal radiant, silky smooth skin with Glycolic Resurfacing Body Serum. The perfect addition to any spring skincare routine. Infused with 5% Glycolic Acid this serum is formulated to replenish skin vibrancy. For instantly softer, smoother and brighter skin by targeting dullness and uneven texture on the body.
5. Up the Antioxidants!
Antioxidants should be used all year round but are particularly beneficial in the spring and summer months. Simply because we spend more time outside!
Look for ingredients like Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Rosehip Oil and Green Caviar to use in your spring skincare regime. Green Caviar is also known as sea grapes. Each ‘sea grape’ is brimming with amino acids, minerals, vitamins and polysaccharides. Helping to protect skin, improving suppleness and boost hydration.
The Green Caviar Perfecting Eye Gel is infused with a botanical blend of cooling, soothing and hydrating extracts to care for your delicate eye area. The lightweight gel absorbs instantly to help awaken tired eyes and minimise the appearance of fine lines and puffiness.
Then flood skin with a wave of hydration with the glow-boosting Green Caviar Perfecting Serum. These deeply hydrating, yet lightweight formulas infuse your skin with antioxidant-rich botanicals. For you to enjoy a radiant, youthful-looking complexion.
Ready. Set. Glow!
‘Antioxidants are crucial in the fight against free radicals. They help neutralise the molecules and prevent signs of ageing, such as pigmentation and fine lines. This goes for eating antioxidant-rich foods and applying them to your skin.’
6. Use Hyaluronic Acid!
If Hyaluronic Acid isn’t already in your skincare regime, Spring the perfect time to add it! Especially as the weather is still a little undecided and we’re still experiencing the dehydrating effects of winter. Think harsh winds and central heating. Hyaluronic Acid is mostly known for its ability to hold 1000 times its weight in water. Therefore it can alleviate dehydrated skin as well as provide instant dewiness and plumpness to skin.
The skin-quenching Hyaluronic Gel Concentrate instantly replenishes moisture, boosts radiance and helps reduce the appearance of fine lines. Formulated with a 20% blend of Hyaluronic Acid and fruit derived AHAs it leaves skin visibly smoother, softer, brighter and youthful looking.
Boost your skin’s hydration and radiance with the Hyaluronic Hydra-Mist. This skin-quenching mist floods thirsty skin with hydration, plump out the appearance of fine lines and awaken your complexion. You can use this vegan-friendly formula as a post-cleanse hydrating toner, or throughout the day.
A useful tip is that hyaluronic acid is best applied to slightly damp skin, as it is a molecule which retains moisture. Try to apply these products straight out of the shower or after washing your face.
