Top tips for beautiful spring skin

Spring shopping list body care

  • Treat your skin with a good exfoliator pre-hair removal

Exfoliators loosen and remove any dead skin cells, in turn making hair removal easier and safer. This is also a necessity before applying fake tan!

  • Always moisturise after your shower

After a shower or bath, skin is more permeable and will absorb moisturiser better – as opposed to dry skin.

  • Don’t forget to treat all those typically neglected areas

Knees, elbows, and heels can suffer throughout the winter. What’s more, because they’re not on show we tend to not bother with these areas as much, meaning they can become dry and flaky. Moisturise from head-to-toe to ensure all these areas get the pampering they need.

  • Stay away from long, hot showers

Hot water strips the natural oils from your skin – and while you’ve got an excuse in winter, it’s best to stick with shorter, warm showers in spring and summer.
