Prepping Foe Spring | My Beauty Tips For Spring

Hey!

Welcome to another blog post! Spring is coming into bloom via the clocks changing, flowers come into their season and many other things so I thought that today I would talk to you guys about some beauty tips for the spring as you never know what the weather will be like in Spring which can affect your skin in many ways!

Cleansers

This amazing beauty product can do so many great things for our skin but I think that we definitely all need to be using one when it comes to Spring because it can go from boiling to freezing within the space of 24 hours and your skin won't know what's going on. Cleansers will get rid of all the impurities that will happen from weather, change of diet and many other things. Garnier do some wonderful cleansers but I am mainly loving 2 cleansers at the moment.  Herbalism from Lush which contains Nettles, Rosemary and Rice Bran which sounds weird I know but they get at the skin to get rid of all the dirt and bad things that are in your skin. Herbalism has such a fresh scent which is great for Spring as scents such as fresh cut grass and herbs come into their trend. The second cleanser that I absolutely love is Honey & Propolis 2-in-1 Cream Cleanser from Bee Good. I love this cleanser from the smell alone. It's sweet but slightly fresh. I also love it due to the thick texture as it is a cream cleanser. This one gets rid of dirt and impurities like most cleansers do but it also exfoliates your skin without drying it out which I love!



SPF

Okay, yes it might be spring which means it might not be bright Summeresque weather that you find in a holiday brochure but the sun is still out no matter what so I would ensure that I have a beauty product that has some sort of good coverage SPF in just to ensure that your skin is in top form because it can be absolutely raining and there's still a chance that you can get sun damage! I would suggest two products from Kiehls. Ultra Facial Moisturizer SPF 30 which sinks into the skin quite quickly so it's great for those days where you want something but you don't have the time to wait for it to sink into the skin.


Toner: 

Toner's are mainly about balancing the skin. I know that a lot of people don't know what a toner is or decide not to use them but I think that toners are amazing for most skin types as they just make your skin that little bit more better. I've found that personally they help with things such as acne post eating lactose and for when my skin just feels a bit poop which happens quite a bit during Spring. The two that I will be focusing on are the Breath Of Fresh Air Toner Spray from Lush and Simple Kind To Skin Soothing Facial Toner. 




Lush's Breath Of Fresh Air Toner is amazing for several ways. First of all, it has a spray which means if you're not keen on cotton pads like me then you can use this without needing them. The spray also means that you can use this as a cooling mist if you get warm quickly. It's animal friendly which is another reason on why I think it is amazing. The other reasons include its scent and what the ingredients can do for your skin. To start off it contains Fairtrade Organic Aloe Vera Gel which soothes irritation and calms down redness. It also rehydrates the skin. Rose Absolute which helps soothe the skin again and Carrageenan extract which doesnt do much skin wise but it makes the texture of the product the way that it is so if you're looking for something soothing then I would suggest this. I love the Simple Toner due to it being kind to skin so its good for all skin types. It's alcohol free and just makes your skin feel amazing. It doesn't have all the fresh ingredients of Lush or the spray bottle but if you want something cheaper then I would suggest this!

Body Sorbets

No, I don't mean the fruit sorbets that you can eat like Ice cream! I mean body sorbets which are kind of like a gel version of a body butter which means that they are lighter and sink in more quickly compared to a body butter/think body moisturiser. They just save time and if the weather does get warm then there's less chance of anywhere being slippery from body butter. I love the Fuji Green Tea Sorbet from The Body Shop as it has such a bright yet light Spring scent which just makes you want to have a Japanese inspired Picnic in a picturesque field. They're easy to shove in a bag and are amazing to apply if frozen when the weather does end up being warm for that one day a year.
