Get fit skin for Spring

Written by Kirsty Chenery

The skin, being the largest organ of our body, needs attention! Like all organs in our bodies, it needs to be nurtured and nourished.

The more hydrated, bright, smooth and firm your skin is, the more “fit” it is. A healthy diet and regular exercise act as the building blocks that nourish your skin from the inside out and these steps help to balance the tone and texture of your skin.

When it comes to the outside that’s where we here at Mineral Earth step in! Spring is the perfect time to shed that dry and flaky skin that may have built up over the winter months. Exfoliating removes the top layer of our dermis and is the perfect way reveal a smoother, more even skin tone. This is a step not to be missed in getting fit skin for Spring!

Whilst you should always wear a sunscreen all year round, realistically you will be applying it more liberally in the warmer months. This is another important step not to be missed! We offer a range of excellent 50+ sunscreens in the Spa which are non-greasy, have active skin care built in and don’t clog the skin.

A few points to remember when getting your skin fit for Spring are:

Retiring your heavier winter creams for a lighter weight moisturiser and adding in a hyaluronic acid serum to keep that skin plump and hydrated.

Adding a Vitamin C serum to help protect against sun damage, treat hyperpigmentation and boost collagen. This is my absolute must have for Spring/Summer!

Book yourself an appointment to have a professional exfoliation; this can include microdermabrasion, enzyme peel treatment or just getting yourself under the steam to open up those pores and give them a mighty good detox!

Spring is always a good time to have a clean out and that includes your make up and skincare. If you have had it in your drawer for over 12 months … ditch it! It has lost its potency and will be doing no favours for you skin.
