It’s April which can only mean one thing…April showers. But, that doesn’t mean we need to be bogged down and let it show in our appearance.

By today’s standard, we all find it difficult to maintain our skin, let alone try and replicate the dewy glow of Millie Mackintosh or model of the moment-Gigi Hadid. The pollution and environmental factors can leave us with breakouts, dry skin and a number of skin concerns. The flowers are starting to blossom, so why shouldn’t you? By following a few simple steps you can finally shed your winter skin:


Exfoliating will help remove impurities giving you a fresh canvas to start the next day. Many factors including weather, pollution and ageing increase the dead skin cells which start to pile up, meaning that light is less able to reflect from your skin. Exfoliating will help to encourage cell renewal helping the skin to glow.


Using a Toner will not only remove excess residue that the cleanser hasn’t picked up but can make a real difference to your routine. The Ground Control Anti-Blemish Tonic helps to neutralise the effects of tired skin by stimulating skin renewal, leaving your skin baby soft.


As the weather starts to warm up, it’s important to replenish moisture that the skin has lost over winter. The Aqua Physics Defence Cream helps to retain moisture whilst also protecting the skin from any harmful UV rays.

Get the glow secret

Among the many other benefits, Vitamin C is known for maintaining the vitality of the skin. Found within the Space Antioxidant Booster, Vitamin C is the key to help prevent wrinkle formation and sun damage by producing collagen, a protein that gives the skin its firmness and giving your skin a youthful glow.


If all else fails, you can always fake it. If you have dry skin apply a liquid highlighter over the cheekbones, brow bones, the centre of your skin and the tip of your nose. If you have oily skin opt for an iridescent powder that will reflect the light.
