Spring clean your beauty regime with our top product picks for the warmer season

As the warmer season gets in full swing, it’s high time you arm yourself with a plethora of products suited to the seasonal change — out with the old and in with the new, we say. From face masks and hydrating hair oils to beauty powders and body scrubs, these products are sure to have you looking and feeling your best.

Detox the skin
During warmer months, the skin requires treatments that soak up excess oil and unclog pores. Codage’s Purifying Mask, available from Spring Store, is the ideal rescue remedy. Combining a green and white clay emulsion with anti-blemish zinc and clarifying copper, this mask is designed to leave your skin deeply cleansed, shine-free and gently exfoliated.

Dull hair repair
Have your locks looking their shiny, silky best this sunny season with an all-in-one oil that offers real results and easy styling. Olaplex No.7 Bonding Oil is a first-of-its-kind hair oil, highly-concentrated and designed to repair and strengthen all types of hair. It also promises to dramatically increase shine, softness, and colour vibrancy, as well as providing UV/heat protection of up to 450°F/232°C.

Switch it up
Replace winter’s full coverage foundation with a softer, lighter tinted cream; it will allow the skin to breathe while still offering sheer coverage and a natural, dewy glow. Bare Minerals’ Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream offers just that, with a three-pronged approach of hydration, natural-looking coverage and broad-spectrum SPF. Plus, it’s available in 20 shades.

Stay sun smart
In between the wintery weather and weeks locked down indoors,  it’s easy for daily sunscreen application to have slipped off your radar. Reset your routine and reacquaint yourself with the most essential skincare product in your kit. We recommend Emma Lewisham’s Skin Shield Daily Face Antioxidant, which provides broad-spectrum SPF 30 protection. It goes easily under makeup for everyday lightweight, non-greasy coverage that also replenishes and restores moisture levels.

Spring marks the return of bare legs and to get those pins primed and ready a rejuvenating, exfoliating body scrub is key. Sothys’ Lemon & Petitgrain Escape Invigorating Body Scrub leaves skin feeling soft and invigorated, with pieces of lemon peel adding a refreshing, exfoliating citrus burst.

Healthy insides
As the saying goes, beauty starts from the inside out. Adding a primo beauty powder to your daily routine now will ensure that an enviable glow is simply effortless come summertime. Try The Beauty Chef’s cult Glow Inner Beauty Powder, available from Inès Store. This vegan-friendly powder promotes radiant skin and good gut health, with 18 certified organic ingredients including collagen-promoting vitamin C, zinc and bio-fermented maqui berries.
