Yay, Friday is officially the first day of spring!
However, as the days start to get a little longer and your spirit sings the praises of the new season, it’s likely your skin is suffering from the winter blues.
Is your skin feeling dry, scaly, rough or undernourished? Do you have dry spots on your knees, elbows, heels or toes? These parts of the body can suffer from being tucked away in winter woollies and boots.
Too often we neglect what we don’t see and when our feet and legs aren’t on display, we can forget to moisturise, resulting in our skin becoming dry and dull.
The good news is that you can kick start your spring beauty regime and shake off those winter blues with our skincare preparation tips.
The best place to start to perk up the skin is with an all over body exfoliation. VOYA’s dual action Time to Shine gentle body polish and Effervescence nourishing sugar scrub are ideal for buffing away those dead skin cells and revealing vividly smoother, more refined skin.
VOYA’s Angelicus Serratus nourishing body oil will transform dry scaly skin and absorb like a moisturiser, while our Serenergise body oil both nourishes and helps relax muscles. For the most troublesome, parched skin types, try Softly Does It body moisturiser for long lasting, intensive hydration.
Then it’s onto the delicate facial area. Grab one of our hydrating Love a Scrub facial exfoliators - so easy to use that it can fit into even the simplest of skincare routines. Apply a pea size amount onto the tip of your fingers (ideal to use in the shower) and massage in circular motions starting at the chin, working up to the forehead. Rinse and glide your fingers over your new silk-smooth skin. The gentle spiny bamboo ingredient of this product polishes away dead skin cells, helping to unclog pores and reveal your new ‘Spring Skin’ hidden under the winter mask.
Along with refining and brightening the skin, exfoliation allows VOYA’s hydrating facial products to work deeper into the skin and address some of the most problematic skin types.
Similar to our body skincare routine, combining a serum/oil with a moisturiser offers a deeply moisturising treatment. Introducing the serum step completes a skincare routine that’s easy to follow this spring. At VOYA we love the combination of the award winning My Little Hero facial serum or Balancing Act soothing facial serum, with our top seller Me Time moisturiser.
