All you need to know for a spring looking skin.
Spring is finally here! As the seasons change, so do your skin care needs. Using the same products all year-round will not yield the results you crave. When the weather shifts it is important that your products, and the way you use them, reflect this seasonal change.
So here are some simple steps that will help you achieve healthy, glowing skin and prepare yourself for the upcoming summer:
Your skin is exposed to many different types of stressors throughout the day. As your largest organ, it is important to make sure you are taking care of it – especially your facial skin. Since your face is not covered by clothing, it is naturally open to receiving the most abuse from the outside world from a variety of sources such as UV exposure, arid or humid climates, harsh air conditioning or heating, cigarette smoke and other pollutants. Nu Skin® Pure Cleansing Gel is a soap-free cleanser that removes dirt, oil, and makeup leaving your skin fresh, clean, and energised without over drying it. Use it twice a day, morning and evening.
Exfoliation is a great way to keep pores from becoming clogged and reveal a healthy, glowing complexion. If not properly exfoliated, your skin can become dull and lifeless over time. Be sure to gently scrub away the top layer of dead skin that you might have built up during the winter months. Exfoliation is also a perfect way to ensure that your other skin care products have the best chance of absorbing into your skin and taking effect for optimum results. If you are new to exfoliating, ease yourself into the process with a mild exfoliator as Nu Skin® Exfoliant Scrub Extra Gentle once or twice a week, using mild warm water.
Now that it is spring time, we should exfoliate and tone for smooth and radiant looking skin. Using a toner like Nu Skin® pH Balance Toner every day will help to diminish the appearance of pores for a more refined and refreshed appearance. A toner also restores skin to its optimal pH level, allowing moisturisers to work more effectively.
Nourish and Protect
A common skin care misconception is that your skin only requires sun protection during the summer months. Protecting your skin from the sun's rays is crucial for maintaining skin health all year long. Although the temperature is still not at its maximum, during spring there will be more sunshine which means SPF is even more important now than it was over the last couple of months. Use a sunscreen or morning moisturiser containing sunscreen to shield your skin from harmful UV rays. You would like to swap your heavier winter moisturiser for one that has a lighter formula. Include or Nu Skin® Moisture Restore Day Protective Lotion with Sunscreen in your daily skin care routine. And when wanting full sun protection Sunright® Sunscreen SPF 30+ offers the perfect solution when at the beach or when your skin is fully exposed to the sun.
Flawless sheer skin is in. Your choice of makeup is just as important for the health of your skin as your choice of skin care products. Make sure to choose products that don’t have ingredients such as talc, petroleum and mineral oil that could be harmful to your skin. Talking about all things natural, this spring is time to put down the brushes, sticks, and wands and go for a more au naturale look. Think fresh baby skin with less contouring. Go for less makeup and more sheer fresh skin. And of course, don't forget to take any makeup off at night.
