Super-charge Your Spring Beauty Routine
With the warmer weather calling and those extra layers coming off, now’s the time to pay more attention to your beauty routine. Here’s how to get the glowing skin and relaxed body you’ll be proud to show off.
Published 08 October

Winter hibernation can often leave skin dull and dehydrated, which makes springtime the ideal time to get primed, conditioned and ready for the summer months ahead.

Ready to leave winter behind and embrace the world again? Here, we track down some of the best treatments and products to get you glowing this spring.


BUT FIRST, LET’S EXFOLIATE
Thanks to dry indoor heating and cooler air and wind outside, skin cells tend to dehydrate and die off quicker in winter. The upshot? Now’s the time to embrace some serious exfoliation. Not only will it promote cell turnover and allow your skin to better absorb your serums and moisturisers, but you’ll also walk out brighter and smoother. Whether you go the chemical route (acids, enzymes) or the physical (microdermabrasion, old-fashioned scrubs), you can look forward to being buffed, beautiful and glowing with vitality at the end of it.

NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH HYDRATION
OK, so you’re super diligent with drinking lots of water during the day but how much hydration is your skin getting? As we age, it’s extra important to keep the skin well hydrated to maintain its elasticity and to combat the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Lack of hydration can result in skin that looks dry, flaky and tight. If you’d prefer to get your skin into the “plump, resilient and supple” category, then think about getting out the big guns with some dedicated hydration treatments such as oxygen facials, vitamin infusions and high-performance serums.

TREATMENTS TO TRY…
1. Priceline, NATIO Rosewater Hydration Moisture Boost Day Cream-Gel 75 mL
2. Deciem, The Ordinary Natural Moisturising Factors + HA 
3. Jurlique, Moisture Plus Rare Rose Serum

From acne and cellulite to frown lines, sun damage and broken capillaries, you’ll find an accessible range of treatments that, in most cases, can be completed on the day with little to no downtime. Among them, laser therapy, LED light therapy, injectables and skin needling are all great at delivering tangible results.

THE BODY BEAUTIFUL
While most of us pay lots of attention to the state of the skin on our face, the same can’t always be said about keeping tabs on the condition of the skin everywhere else on our bodies. Along with body exfoliation treatments and soothing hydration, show your body some love with a relaxing massage. With spring and summer clothing comes shorter skirts, legs and sleeves, and more exposure, so if it’s been a while then now could be the time to book yourself in for some waxing, laser hair removal or a spray tan. Toes haven’t seen daylight for a while? A good pedicure can do wonders for neglected feet and toes, sloughing off months’ worth of dead skin, boosting hydration and delivering the kind of glam, glossy tootsies your summer sandals deserve.

TREATMENTS TO TRY…
1. Spa Massage, Foot Reflexology and Foot Spa 
2. Lavender Nails, Manicure 
3. Civic Nails, Spa Pedicure
