Spring is coming. And it’s the perfect time for a fresh start! An opportunity to change things around and experiment with new methods, products and techniques. It’s time to “marie kondo” our wardrobe. And while we’re at it, we should ‘home edit’ our skincare routine too.
The mantra your skin needs right now is: PROTECT, REPAIR AND RESTORE. We are going for glowing and healthy skin, right? The weather is nice, but not too much, we need to be careful… We don’t want to overwhelm ourselves or our skin.
We recommend something called “SKINIMALISM“. You may ask: What’s that?
Well, it appears to be a new trend in the beauty industry. We love trends and being up to date right? We are going to let you in on a little secret: it’s for sure the way to go. Simplifying your routine will help you nourish your skin. Fewer but powerful ingredients mean higher concentrations. Are you up for it? Who isn’t going for that glowing look?
But what are we recommending? Well, gentle ingredients and a streamlined, affordable, and sustainable skincare routine. In the long run, it will help you and the environment too. It’s a win-win situation here.

We can’t stress it out enough: natural beauty products work, and we should always go for them. You don’t need a lot to glow. A few good products are all the support your skin needs right now.
We have some useful tips for you. READY, STEADY, AND GO!
1) COLD THERAPY 🌸
Also known as cryotherapy. Sounds like something complicated? In reality, it’s not! You just need an ice roller for your face, and that’s it. It will help with blood flow and reduce inflammation in the skin. It also helps to get rid of swelling and puffiness in the morning. You will be left with a lifted and hydrated complexion.
2) STRONGER CLEANSER 🌸
In the spring, we recommend a foaming cleanser. It’s the best cleanser to nourish and restore your skin.
3) EXFOLIATION 🌸
To remove winter build-ups in your skin, and to make it dewy, we recommend a chemical exfoliator. You need a deep dive into your pores, to cleans and calm your skin.
4) GLOW BOOSTERS AND PRODUCTS CONTAINING NIACINAMIDE 🌸
For those who want to go the extra mile: Serums and Treatments spoil your skin and make it feel good.
- A glow booster will hydrate and brighten your skin.
- Niacinamide is a powerful ingredient. Perfect to brighten your skin and calm it down from inflammation.
5) SKIN HYDRATION AND EYES AREA 🌸
We recommend a water-based cream that boosts hydration. It’s so lightweight, that you won’t even notice it.
Your eyes get irritated easily and need something soothing. This area needs constant hydration.
6) USE SUNSCREEN 🌸
A mineral sunscreen is the best choice for your skin right now. One with a blendable tint and a lotion formula.
7) A CLAY MASK ONCE A WEEK 🌸
They help absorb oil from your skin, protect against acne and soothe dry skin. All the dirt in your pores can be brought up to the surface with the help of a clay mask.
