We seem to have got our skincare routines nailed in lockdown, but with the weather changing and the temps rising, it’s probably time to switch up your products. The cold Winter months are harsh on our skin, leading to us using more intense moisturisers in order to battle the wind and rain, but luckily with spring around the corner, we can start to lighten up on product and make the most of the sun. Take a look at our top tips on building the ultimate spring skincare routine.

Say goodbye to cold cracked skin and get ready to deal with oily humid skin. Take a look at our top tips to adjust your skincare routine in time for summer.

Spring skincare essentials

Swap your moisturiser for something a little lighter. Change up your usual formulas for something containing Hyaluronic Acid or with a water based formula. This will help your skin to retain moisture, keeping it looking fresh, plump and glowy.


Winter weather can leave your skin feeling dry, flaky and dull, and the best way to reduce these effects into spring is by exfoliation. Exfoliate to reduce the build up and damage that Winter has caused and show off that bright spring complexion.


You’ve probably heard this a million times, but SPF is crucial for any skincare routine. It protects you from harmful UV rays and keeps your skin healthy for so much longer. Rather than just using a foundation with a light SPF rating, try actually mixing in high factor suncream with your moisturiser before priming your face. You will thank us in the long run.

Spring cleaning

Use the transition to spring as an opportunity to clear out your makeup drawer of any expired products and clean your tools. Dirty makeup brushes and sponges can harbour nasty bacteria, which can lead to breakouts and spots. Take a look at our easy guide to cleaning your makeup sponges for more info.
