Now that winter is officially done and dusted, chances are your beauty kit and cupboard are in need of a revamp – not only to embrace the new season trends, but also to help counteract any damage the cold and wind may have done to your skin, hair and body.
Your spring skin care essentials:
Winter’s cold temperatures and high winds have probably left your skin drier and more lacklustre than you’d like, which means your spring beauty kit should include products that are going to up your hydration and enhance your radiance.
This season we’ve added Estée Lauder Revitalizing Supreme+ Cell Power Creme to our AM and PM routine. This new time-fighter has a cocktail of anti-ageing ingredients that we love - moringa and marine algae extracts, glucosamine, and prickly pear cactus to improve skin’s natural firmness and density, and leave it smoother and brighter.
Need a bit more of an immediate radiance boost? Then power up your glow-getting arsenal with Estée Lauder Revitalizing Supreme+ Cell Power Wake Up Balm. Wear it alone, or layer over the Creme (great for a mid afternoon pick-me-up!) to flaunt an enviable glow.
Your spring hair essential:
Constant heat styling paired with cold mornings and nights, gusty winds and freezing rain can do a number on the health of your hair, so it’s a good idea to start using an intensive hair mask once a week to rehydrate your locks and bring them back to life. And if you really want to give your damaged hair a double dose of love, pick a mask that offers UV protection, like Kérastase Masque UV Defense Active, to protect your colour against fading from the sun.
Your spring body essential:
The past few months of having your limbs covered has probably left your skin dry, dehydrated, and – if you’ve been lazy about moisturising during winter – flaky. Up the ante on your springtime exfoliation routine by using a glycolic scrub, like asap revitalising body scrub, to slough away dead skin cells and reveal softer and smoother skin.
