Spring Clean Your Skincare Routine: Moisturisers, Eye Creams & SPF [Part 3]

Welcome back to Part 3 of our Spring Clean Your Skincare Routine series, and this time we’re talking about the benefits of moisturisers, eye creams, and SPF to restoring dull, dry skin from winter. A common mistake that a lot of us make when it comes to updating the skincare routine for spring is to toss out the moisturiser. Exposure to the sun can dehydrate your skin, too, which makes moisturising an essential part of your skin routine.

Instead of tossing out your moisturisers, opt for lightweight formulas instead. This will allow easier absorption of the moisturising agents on your skin to keep it supple and looking fresh! At the same time, it won’t leave any greasy residue on your skin.

Moisturise & Protect

Give your skin a spring awakening when you incorporate a good moisturiser for this new season. A lighter and brighter moisturiser provides the ideal base to maintain the natural glow of your skin, which makes it easier to enhance your natural complexion.

It is easy to let your guard down when you’re on vacation or outdoors enjoying the beach or pool. However, sunscreen or SPF products are a must! You’ll need to splash on the SPF to protect your skin. It serves as a barrier of protection against the damaging rays of the sun.

But sunscreen and the use of SPF isn’t just for when you’re out and about. In these times when you’re isolating at home, you still need sunscreen!

There is a common misconception that just because you’re indoors that you are safe from the harmful UV rays of the sun. In fact, SPF products won’t be necessary at all. WRONG!

What does this mean?

UVA rays have the ability to penetrate deeper into your skin – which means them a more serious threat than UVB rays! In fact, UVA rays are the main culprit to photo-aging – a condition that is characterised by the appearance of dark spots on the skin, as well as that leathery texture on your skin. U

UVA rays have the ability to penetrate through most glass windows and can even put you at risk for developing skin cancer. So, don’t be complacent just because you are staying indoors most of the time. You are at risk for cancer or skin aging!
