Ready to Spring Forward
A change of season is upon us, and with that comes the need to adjust our skincare and wellness routine. Today we are sharing some of our favourite products for spring. After months of snow and freezing temperatures, winter has (almost) left us, leaving an aftermath of dry, itchy skin in its wake. Changes in humidity, sun exposure, and outdoor activity usually drive the need to change your skincare routine. Springtime brings more humidity and higher temperatures, which requires a tweak to your sun protection, as well as your anti-aging regimen. So, we’re opting for lightweight moisturizers and antioxidants. Here are some things we love:
Smoothing Body Brush
Daily dry brushing of the body has been proven to boost microcirculation, stimulate the lymphatic system, and improve the removal of toxins.
As the winter layers gradually come off, we love using Body Oil to get ready for the warmer weather.
Eeje Facial Soap
Modify your skincare regimen depending on the condition of your skin and the temperature outside. Our Eeje Facial Soap has a great deep-cleansing effect to remove make-up residues and dead skin cells.
While wearing sunscreen is important all year round, it's especially important to protect yourself during the spring as you'll inevitably be spending more time outdoors. Use SPF 30 or higher. We also love a multitasker in our Recovery BB Cream where you can a sheer coverage and the SPF coverage at the same time. Our Recovery BB Cream is an innovative UV BB Cream that gives sheer coverage and perfects the complexion by utilizing the plant-based pigmentation from Aronia Berry and Kaolin Clay.
Switch To A Lighter Moisturizer
While heavy creams feel like a godsend on dry winter skin, applying them on a sticky, sweaty face is a different story. When the weather is cold and dry, we need to use good emollients and occlusives to reduce transepidermal water loss. As the temperatures and humidity increase, we may not need such heavy occlusives to keep our skin moisturized, and heavy products can feel sticky and greasy. Lighter moisturizers with humectants and emollients will feel better. Switching to a gel-based formula, which absorbs quickly while protecting the skin barrier. Try our bestseller Morning Drizzle Waterdrop Cream that won’t clog pores or leave a greasy feel.
Nobody likes pigmentation, especially when it's sun-induced (sunspots are notoriously difficult to erase). Antioxidants are particularly helpful during the spring and summer months to avoid sun damage. Topical antioxidants like Vitamin C can donate electrons to stabilize the free radicals and decrease sun damage.
