As spring blooms, here are five easy ways to ensure glowing skin for the season
Our skin has different needs throughout each season, so it is important that you check in with your skin to make sure it’s getting just what it requires. If your skin is feeling drab from the winter months, we’ve got the answers to getting glowing spring skin...
1. Book a facial
Facebook/Huna SkinWith every seasonal change comes changes in the environment around you, making it the perfect time to visit your aesthetician. It’s easy to think you can achieve this by doing an at-home facial yourself, but an aesthetician is able to target your skin from different angles to really get in there, get your skin cleaned up, and give you educated advice to prepare your skin for the warmer days ahead.
2. Exfoliation is key
No, but really... exfoliation is key. As our cell regeneration slows down with the natural aging process, dead skin cells are not shed so easily. In addition to that, the cold winter weather conditions can take a toll on our skin, leaving behind dry, flaky patches. This can lead to cell build-up on skin resulting in a dull, lacklustre complexion and congested, clogged pores.
With weekly at-home exfoliation, you can clear away those dead skin cells and leave your skin glowing and polished. Huna Apothecary's Clarify Exfoliate Fruit Extract Face Toner contains a mild 100 percent fruit acid AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) exfoliating blend that works overnight while you sleep—while your skin naturally repairs itself. You will wake up to beautifully clear, refreshed, renewed and glowing healthy skin each morning.
3. Hydrate with a facial mist
Huna’s Revitalize Botanical Facial-1 Mist with Canadian rose, aloe vera and juicy watermelon is a mist-on hydrating humectant formula. The formula creates a unique, effective and instantly hydrating mist using plant-based humectants, which actually pull moisture from the surrounding environment into your skin—keeping your skin hydrated, fresh-looking and glowing.
This facial mist is designed to refresh, perk-up, revive and nourish skin, plus it beautifully sets mineral and natural cosmetics. And—bonus!—it comes in a carry-on flight travel-approved bottle, ideal for those who experience dehydrated skin during air travel.
4. Choose a natural, nourishing moisturizer
Throughout the winter months, your skin requires a heavier cream or balm-based moisturizer, however once the warmer weather hits, your skin will thank you for switching to a lighter option. While you may think that during the warmer days, your skin doesn’t need any moisturizer, it still does. It just needs the right one!
Huna's Revitalize Age-Grace Face Serum-1 delivers deep hydration, effective antioxidant protection, and a healthy nourished glow. It is a lightweight yet ultra-deeply hydrating power-packed serum that nourishes and protects with a potent antioxidant and polyphenol-rich formula. It is quickly absorbed by skin to revitalize, renew, protect and leave skin glowing with nourished health.
5. Slather on the SPF
It's recommended you wear an SPF throughout the year because, even though you may not notice it, you can still be on the receiving end of damaging UV rays in the middle of winter. Once we hit spring and summer, SPF becomes even more important because, in Canada, that's when the UV index is at its highest. Find a good sunscreen with natural, healthy ingredients and high SPF protection that you can apply daily to your face, neck, hands and anywhere else that is exposed to the sun.
