Now that we’ve banished the winter blues, why not give your beauty routine a spring refresh
Our skincare needs tend to change with the seasons, and now that we’re waking up to brighter, warmer days, we’re thinking of ways to adapt our day-to-day routine to support healthy, radiant skin all year round. Often, all it takes is a few simple product swaps to keep your routine feeling fresh and effective. Here are some ideas for nurturing your natural beauty as the weather changes, and keeping yourself boosted from the inside out.
Spring Skincare Routine
Exfoliate. Our bestselling Honey & Orange Facial Scrub exfoliates and cleanses with skin-conditioning honey, reviving and brightening skin that has become dull and dry from battling the winter elements.
Tone. Our lightweight Rejuvenating Frankincense Facial Mist keeps skin hydrated and refreshed throughout the day, with the help of cooling aloe vera and calming frankincense.
Boost. A few drops of our high-performing Vitamin C Brightening Booster will instantly supercharge your skin’s natural radiance. With added Kakadu plum, one of the world’s most potent source of vitamin C.
Moisturise. Our Wild Rose Glow Day Cream is a customer favourite for a reason. A lightweight yet hard-working daily moisturiser that visibly enhances skin radiance with an expert blend of organic rosehip seed oil, skin-quenching hyaluronic acid, and plant-derived fatty acids.
SPF. Whether the sun’s out or not, protecting your skin against UVA/UVB light is an essential step in any beauty routine. Our antioxidant-rich Wild Rose Moisturising SPF is 100% mineral filter, which means that its mineral base creates a mirror effect, reflecting the light away from the skin, unlike standard SPFs.
Supporting Your Skin’s Natural Health
Skin health relies on what we put inside our bodies just as much as the creams we use. Our extensive collection of health supplements, teas and herbal remedies can work in a complementary way alongside your usual topical skincare to help naturally support a healthy complexion. Here are some of our favourite ways to refresh the morning routine, while keeping your inner health and outer beauty as balanced as it can be.
Wake up to a cup of zesty Bright Start Tea – a delicious way to keep yourself (and therefore your skin) hydrated. Infused with iron-rich green nettle, and rosehip for added vitamin C.
Boost your breakfast time with a teaspoon of our Organic Beauty Oil, on its own or added to food. This blend of fatty acid-rich organic flax seed, hemp, avocado, evening primrose, and pumpkin seed oils works to help keep skin, hair and nails naturally nourished.
Our Vitamin C Boost with added organic wild rosehip, is a gentle daily supplement offering support to normal immune and psychological functions, as well as normal collagen production.
Finally, for some spring-time breakfast inspiration, here’s one of our favourite recipes. Baobab powder is an ideal all-rounder for seasonal health, as it’s densely nutrient-rich, with as much calcium as a glass of milk, more magnesium than spinach and ten times more vitamin C than oranges. What’s more, it’s a prebiotic, so it’s easy on your digestion first thing in the morning.
Baobab & Bee Pollen Yogurt
- 1 teaspoon bee pollen
- 2 teaspoons baobab powder
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds
- 10 rehydrated golden berries – 10, rehydrated 1 (vitamin C boost)
- 1 small serving organic plain live yogurt or plant-based alternative
- 1 dessert spoon raw honey
Blend the baobab and yogurt in a small bowl
Drizzle the raw honey over the top
Sprinkle the bee pollen, golden berries, and chia seeds
Add other toppings, such as blueberries and pumpkin seeds
Buy raw honey from a local beekeeper or farmers’ market. Unless it says raw, it has been pasteurised, which can destroy the health-giving properties of honey.
