Beauty Regime

Spring is a season of transition and therefore a great time to review your beauty regime. Pose these questions to yourself – are you still seeing benefits from your regime? Is your skin currently looking its best? If the answers are no then now’s the time to implement some changes.

1. Try a weekly treatment

There are many factors which can affect the skin including environmental influences, stress, fatigue, hormones and much more. These mean that sometimes skin needs a little extra care. If you have noticed that your skin isn’t looking too good lately then firstly make sure you have the core steps in place; cleansing and moisturising day and night as well as taking a skin supplement. Next try using a treatment to give skin a nutrition boost. The radiant skin moisture mask helps to give skin a detox. With natural cress sprouts, vitamin E and white tea to intensively hydrate, enhance the skin’s protective barrier and reduce the loss of elastin.

2. Focus on cleansing

Without cleansing methods in your regime it is very hard to get the results that you might be hoping for. We can’t stress enough how important it is to cleanse skin in the morning and before bed. Try also adding an exfoliator to your regime, using it a couple of times a week to remove dry skin cells. The nurture exfoliator contains natural exfoliating particles of rice starch, grape seeds and papaya extract to leave skin brighter and smoother. If you wear eye make-up then it’s also a good idea to use a gentle remover. The bi-phase eye make-up remover helps to wipe away all traces of make-up and is non-greasy.

3. Take a supplement

A traditional ‘outer’ skincare regime is very beneficial for the skin but unfortunately it does have limitations. Using products directly on the skin only takes care of the epidermis (outermost layer of skin). To make a more noticeable, long-lasting difference to your skin, a traditional regime should be supported from within. Supplements help to feed skin from the inside, below the surface with all it needs to support the skin structure and produce new, healthy skin cells. Try the replenish or new platinum rewind supplements to give your skin the all-round care it needs.

4. Get instant results

If you are feeling the need for a faster pick-me-up then try the nurture cosmetics for instant results. The foundations contain moisturising ingredients plus natural plant extracts to firm and boost radiance. Pearl pigments are colour-correcting and help to illuminate complexion. The face powder gives skin an excellent, even finish. It is enriched with antioxidants and sun filters to defend skin.

5. Always use an SPF

Everyone should use a moisturiser which contains UV filters, every day. Don't be tricked into thinking that it won’t be doing you any harm if you’re staying indoors or if the weather isn’t nice. Check the date on your skincare products, especially those which contain SPF protection. Out of date products not only can contain harmful bacteria, but also no longer give protection you need. At this time of year the skin can be especially sensitive to damage so try incorporating a product with higher protection. The daily face protector offers high factor protection from both UVA and UVB rays, it is light and non-greasy so it’s perfect for using on a daily basis.
