The end is in sight! That’s right, warm weather is coming this spring and say “So long! Farewell!” to winter.
We don’t know about you, but we are so ready for the sunnier days and all of the mental switches that accompany the beginning of spring. If you ask us, we’ve never needed a fresh start more than we do now!
One of our favourite aspects of spring is switching up our beauty routine. Though, you probably could’ve guessed that…
So, if you’re in the market for a lighter, brighter and all-round glowier complexion to match the weather, we’ve got you covered with these steps.
Spring clean your beauty bag
First things first, it’s time to get rid of all of the expired makeup and those old skincare products. The skin is the biggest organ on the body and you don’t want to be putting gone-off products on it!
Check the use-by dates on all of your products to make sure that you’re not unintentionally making your complexion worse, rather than better.
Switch to minimal coverage
Spring is the perfect excuse to let your skin breathe!
Swap out full-coverage foundations and heaps of concealer for lighter coverage options to give yourself that youthful, radiant look.
Opt for a lighter moisturiser
On the topic of lighter products, it can also beneficial to reach for a less intense moisturiser in the spring.
Whilst winter means colder weather and, as such, a dry complexion, the warmer months can mean that your thick moisturiser is just too much!
Codex Beauty’s Bia Day Cream is our current favourite option, with a lightweight formula that softens all skin types. It also works wonderfully under makeup and gives a brighter looking complexion that is oh-so-spring!
