Top tips for helping you ‘spring’ into better skin!

No matter what you might have chosen as your resolution at the top of this year, radiant and healthy skin is on everyone’s wish list. Spring is well and truly upon us, and this means another chance to try new things, develop your routine, or learn about awesome developments in the skincare world. We’re all hoping for lots of sunshine in the weather forecast, but the forecast on upcoming beauty and skincare trends looks bright too! Here are a few emerging skincare trends that we have our eye on this season …

Good for the skin, and good for the environment

Products with sustainable packaging are on the rise, with many people opting for zero-waste products that use minimal, recycled and recyclable packaging. With sustainability, eco-friendliness, and the zero-waste movement becoming increasingly popular, lots of brands are switching to more environmentally friendly packaging. This means that you are spoilt for choice when it comes to finding great products.

Natural ingredients for no-nonsense nourishment

With similar ideals in mind, we’re also starting to see a rise in natural ingredients used in cosmetics and skincare, with brands promoting their use of 100% natural ingredients and their cruelty-free status. Skincare and beauty experts are all about finding out what’s good for the skin, and equally, what’s not. Having confidence in products that are clean and free from parabens, phthalates, and harsh ingredients is important, and lots of brands are seeing this demand and actually trying to meet it, which is great news for consumers.

Say yes to SPF

We should all hopefully be aware now of the harmful effects the sun has on our skin and health, so using products with SPF protection is a must! The great news is, with more and more advances in UVA and UVB protection, there are plenty of great options when it comes to sun care and sun protection. There are so many products to choose from, with products that have light and non-greasy formulas readily available.

Retinols, anti-ageing and facials

Wearing sunscreen is one way to defend against the early signs of ageing, but how about other treatments? Retinol is currently a popular ingredient in skincare as vitamin A increases cell turnover, but be careful to check for retinyl palmitate, which should be avoided as it is potentially unsafe. The battle against ageing is ongoing, and the best way to tackle signs of ageing is to prevent them. Facials, skin peels and other treatments remain as popular as ever, as professional treatment gives great results. Regular facials and skin-peels will ensure your skin stays radiant, and preventative treatments can keep your skin in great shape.
