Spring has finally begun, but the temperatures are still a little on the cold side. Just because we’re waiting for things to warm up and get a little sunny, doesn’t mean your skin can’t look glowy and radiant right now. With a few simple steps and a couple of make-up swaps, you can transform your dull, drab complexion to one that’s bright, youthful and healthy.
The cold weather can lead to a build-up of dead skin cells, making the complexion look dull, lacklustre and grey. To combat this use the Lift Off Exfoliating Cleanser once a week. It is formulated with three deep-cleansing, non-irritating acids; lactic acid, tartaric acid and papaya enzyme, which gently slough off dead skin cell and reveal a glowing complexion.
2. The Right Moisturiser
Dry, dull skin is an obvious giveaway that you haven’t seen the sun for months. To remedy this the first thing you need to do is create a hydrated, dewy base. However don’t make the mistake of thinking you can remedy very dry skin by simply layering on a hydrating cream. There’s only so much product your skin can absorb and you run the risk of clogging your pores by over-applying your moisturiser. Try the Space Anti-Age Night Renewal Cream, the ultra-hydrating formula contains alpha-hydroxy acids to exfoliate and renew the skin while hyaluronic acid draws in moisture. It’s the perfect post-winter treatment to use two to three times per week to resurface and retexture the complexion.
3. Opt For Illuminating Products
When it comes to your makeup choices you should opt for products which are light and illuminating. For your base opt for a tinted moisturiser or BB cream and then use a creamy concealer to hide dark circles and blemishes. Finish your look by applying a highlighter to your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose and your brow bone. If you have pale skin opt for a pearlescent highlighter, medium skin tones suit champagne or pink highlighters and those with dark skin should choose a neutral peach highlighter.
4. A Gradual Tanner
You may feel great when you have a sun-kissed glow, but a tan is actually a sign of skin damage. If you’re a sun worshipper you don’t need to give up your glow just yet, just swap to a bottled tan instead. After all the best tan is a fake tan! Opt for a gradual tanning product which will allow you to gently build up a natural glow. Sun damage is the main cause of premature ageing and can lead to fine lines, wrinkles and dry, rough skin so make sure you’re wearing sun protection everyday.
