As the clocks change, ditch the woollies once and for all. The same goes for those heavy winter moisturisers. After a long dry spell for skin, swap up rich formulas for something rather more lightweight. Take a rain-check from April showers to review your skincare priorities. Hotter weather is just around the corner, or at least we hope it is. Spring is all about transformation from pasty, tired and dehydrated skin into a bright, healthy, radiant complexion. That way, when the sunshine arrives, you’re all set for a summer of fun.
Spring Clean Your Skin: Exfoliate
Greasy moisturisers and heavy make-up should remain confined to wintertime. With the start of spring, skin has to adapt to new environmental factors, like sunshine and warmer temperatures. Not only that, but we’ve all been stuck indoors since Christmas and had to wear masks for going out. All of this has had a compounded effect on our skin. It desperately needs extra care and attention this year to get it looking primed for summer.
Regular exfoliation is the first step to beautiful skin. An effective exfoliator will reveal fresh, new skin which helps with the absorption of follow-on products and moisturisers. We especially love Obagi Exfoderm®. This gentle exfoliator, suitable for dry or sensitive skin types removes impurities for a fresher complexion and boosts cell turnover to give a more youthful appearance. Alternatively, try the sister product, Obagi Exfoderm® Forte, which contains Alpha Hydroxy Acids for stronger exfoliation.
How to Hydrate Skin for Spring
Antioxidants are another important ingredient this season. Check that your moisturiser contains antioxidants like Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin A and Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide). These are mighty skin allies indeed, repairing damage, strengthening the skin barrier and defending against damaging free radicals. It’s also important to use a hydrator that delivers continuous hydration at a deep cellular level, whilst leaving skin non-greasy and without clogging pores.
Our Choice: Obagi Daily Hydro Drops™ Facial Serum
Get your glow on this summer with the innovative, lightweight Obagi Daily Hydro Drops™ Facial Serum from Obagi Medical, the leading transformative skincare brand. Use this daily serum under your day and night cream or on its own. You’ll see why it’s our product of choice for instant radiance.
The secret to its success? That’s easy to answer. It’s all down to the powerful ingredients that actively support the skin’s natural barrier function. Dull, tired skin is transformed from deep within into bright, healthy looking skin.
Obagi Daily Hydro Drops™ Facial Serum: Isoplentix™ Technology
This is a skincare brand that’s known for its cutting-edge technology. There’s no exception in this formulation either. Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) and rich natural antioxidants, Abyssinian Oil and Hibiscus Oil are suspended using patented microfluidic Isoplentix™ technology.
Whoa I can hear you saying. I haven’t a clue what that means. If the science seems baffling, let’s put this into some semblance of English. Each droplet is made individually and then its suspended to protect and preserve each ingredient in its purest form until the time of application. Isoplentix™ technology has another benefit because it removes the need for unnecessary emulsifiers, a common irritant for sensitive skin.
If you thought that was the end of it, think again. There’s even more goodness packed into this wonderfully weightless serum. Omega-9 and Omega-6 Fatty Acids support and maintain the skin’s natural barrier. Phytosterols shield skin from sun damage and premature ageing.
