Spring is in the air, and formals and outdoor parties and events are just around the corner which means getting ideas for makeup looks, dress designs, choosing fun colours and accessories.
So now the the weather is getting warmer, shed the winter clothes and lets start and looking at how we can make our skin ready for the sexy Spring wardrobe..
There are a number of things we can do to improve the texture and look of our skin, not just for your face but also your body...
Exfoliate - The best way to get your skin looking soft and smooth is to exfoliate. You can use a body scrub in the shower or bath and whilst there are a number of scrubs around, using a natural or organic scrub is best. You can also use a textured sponge which will help remove dead skin cells. Make sure that you use a softer exfoliating scrub for your face. Gently using two fingers work a little of the scrub evenly around the face and in particular around the nose and chin areas. Too harsh and you will remove the good skin cells and damage the skin. Exfoliate no more than twice a week.

Hydrate - help to nourish and moisturise
your skin with a good daily moisturiser. Its time to ditch the heavy winter moisturiser and start looking at a light weight one particularly for your face. For the body you should moisturise daily, particularly after a shower. For your face, its morning and night. The best moisturisers are those that are organic and/or natural - no nasties on the face!!
A range of facial moisturisers can be found online here as well as in-store.
Lastly Slip, Slop, Slap - there should be no reason to forget the SPF, this is an important part of the skincare regime. Again get a good one that has natural products. A lot of the face moisturisers contain sunscreen but extra protection never hurts. Our Custom Foundation and Melli Foundations contain sunscreen too. Check them out here.
Always wear a hat and sunglasses to help to protect your eyes and face. Sunburn not only hurts but doesn't look good on your face... :)
Just Beautiful have a range of sunglasses in-store too.
