Spring Clean Your Skincare Routine￼
Finally, we are officially out of the dreary winter months and into the spring season. What a joy to wake up to lighter mornings, have the longer days, and even enjoy a glimmer of sunshine.
There is a sense of renewed energy in spring, which awakens the trees and spring flowers. All around us life starts to blossom and look brighter. Spring is definitely a time to consider spring cleaning your skin care regime to feel fresher and brighter too!
During each season there are significant environmental changes, which means that modifications to your skin care regime may be required to reflect them. Think about putting your winter products away, just like you would your woolly hat and scarf.
Here are a few typical FAQ’s relating to skincare in spring.
Do I need to change my face cleanser?
If you notice your skin starting to look more congested or you are getting breakouts, then your cleanser may need to be replaced to a more refining type to achieve clearer skin. Another option is to take the oral supplement Viridian’s ‘Clear Skin Complex’ (Veg caps) to support skin health.

Should I exfoliate my skin more frequently in spring?
During the cold winter months one can become remiss about exfoliating, whilst layering on a thicker moisturiser. Exfoliating your skin will lift those dull, dead, sluggish skin cells to give a new vibrant boost and a spring clean glow.
Do I need to change my face moisturiser?
Changes of seasons means changes in humidity levels. In spring the air is less dry, which can affect how the skin holds onto moisture. A lighter moisturiser would be a great choice to keep the skin hydrated and prevent skin congestion. Speak to a professional skin care aesthetician for guidance.
Should I use a serum in spring instead of a moisturiser?
A serum tends to be formulated with a high percentage of active ingredients, which are intended for a specific purpose. These can include hyaluronic acid to rehydrate the skin and vitamin c to repair and rejuvenate. Post serum always apply a moisturiser suited to your skin condition to moisturise and protect the skin.
Do I need to use an SPF product now it’s spring time?
It is advised to apply an SPF all year round to protect the skin from HEV light emitted from device screens, which we tend to use all year round. A higher SPF would be advisable to apply daily from around March, as one tends to spend more time outdoors and thus a higher risk of exposure to the powerful spring sun. During high intensity UV exposure re-apply every 2 hours.
If you are prone to hyperpigmentation select a high SPF skin care product all year round. There are some formulated with specific de-pigmenting ingredients to reduce the present pigment, as well as anti-enzyme inhibitors to prevent pigment from re- developing. My choice is the Mesoestetic SPF130.
I suffer from sensitive skin and hay fever, what can help my skin during this time?
During spring we spend more time outdoors exposed to the elements. Pollen is an environmental factor during spring and can cause skin irritation and sensitivity. Use products to sooth and calm the skin, along with anti- oxidant ingredients to defend the skin from such negative attacks. Discuss your concerns with a professional skin care aesthetician to ascertain the most beneficial products to suit your needs.
Should I consider a facial treatment in spring?
Spring time is always a great time to jump start your new skin care regime. Select a treatment that incorporates a cleanse, exfoliant, deep pore extraction, and lots of hydration to brighten up your lack lustre winter skin.
Is spring a good time to start Laser Hair Removal?
Laser Hair Removal is always the better option to remove hair and achieve silky smooth skin, any time of year.
