Spring is the ultimate time of the year that represents new beginnings. If you’re in the mood, spring cleaning your home, dusting out nooks and crannies, then now is the perfect opportunity to revamp your skincare routine, so fling open the bathroom cabinet and reconsider what’s inside.
As the mercury rises so does our temperature, increasing our metabolic processes. This means that your skin metabolism speeds up and you excrete more water (sweat) and oil, making your skin prone to dehydration. We all know that your skin (and body) requires adequate moisture inside and out, to stay plump and hydrated. As your skin is made up of both water and oil, you need a combination of both in your products. It’s a delicate balance to let your skin breathe.
The aim is to hydrate, not suffocate by using lighter products and incorporating sunscreen into your routine. Here are some of our Spring favs from Organic Aussie brand Mukti that'll help create the perfect prescription:
Daily Moisturiser with Sunscreen - Suitable for every day moderate protection. This lightweight, non-whitening formula contains 20% Zinc Oxide, and is fortified with antioxidants. Perfect for work days, school drop offs and running errands.
- Vitamin Booster Vital C Exilir and Age Defiance Serums - As we tend to spend more time outdoors, engaging in sporting and water activities, products with great delivery systems that help penetrate the deeper dermal layers and assist with repairing and restoring your skin barrier are your secret weapon. Look at incorporating lighter products that contain microencapsulated peptides, antioxidants and vitamins from our so your skin can utilise and uptake key actives.
Antioxidant Facial Serum and Antioxidant Facial Oil - When combined are lighter on the skin but pack a powerful punch by assisting the skin in retaining water and locking in moisture. The Antioxidant Facial Oil is an all-time hero product. Just a few drops can be incorporated into your skincare regime all year round offering your skin a potent, bioactive boost of supercritically extracted botanicals.
Rose Blossom Hydration Mist - Never underestimate the power of a facial mist. It's the perfect companion product and aids penetration when used prior to applying any serums, elixirs, oils and moisturisers. It’s also handy as an on-the-go refreshment that can be used throughout the day to set your makeup and give your skin a dewy glow. This mist is one of our best-selling products due to its versatility and suitability for all skin types. It’s the closest you’ll get to being able to whip a mini mobile facial out of your handbag. Keep one in the desk drawer if you work in an office with air conditioning or if you are flying.
2-in-1 Resurfacing Exfoliant - Gentle exfoliation a couple of times a week assists in the removal of dead skin cells encouraging the new cells to surface and leaving you with a renewed complexion. This exfoliator delivers both physical and "chemical” exfoliation in the form of natural occurring AHA fruit acids from three different types of native limes plus spherical bamboo and jojoba beads to remove any residual buildup on the skin surface.
- Bioactive Body Polish - Remember your skincare doesn’t end at your neck. Spring is the time to let your limbs loose and shed your winter snake skin. This perfect prepping polish helps to hydrate and minimise skin imperfections and before applying your favourite tan.
