There’s nothing quite as invigorating or satisfying (once you’ve completely finished) as a spring clean.
Throwing open windows, pulling back furniture, gathering useless things you’ll no longer need, and just generally sprucing up the house; they’re all signs that the weather has turned, summer is on its way, and we’re ready to start afresh.
So if you spring clean your house, then why shouldn’t you do the same for your beauty routine?
With these simple tips, you’ll be able to transform your body and hair care routines this spring, rejuvenating skin and revealing a fresh look for the summer.
Focusing on your body
- Throw out all your old products
Just like food, body care products expire. Not only can they lose their effectiveness then, and potentially even cause irritation, they just take up wasted space on your shelves and dressing table. Check the Period After Opening date, which is usually found as a little jar symbol with the number of months inside it. Be ruthless, and get rid of anything you don’t need.
- Clean out those dead cells
Our skin naturally accumulates dead skin cells on the surface, so spring is the perfect time to shed this dull, lacklustre layer and get ready for the beach. Exfoliation is key here in restoring glowing and fresh-looking skin. Why not try the Invigorating Body Reviver from ESPA?
- Brush away the cobwebs on your skin
After a long and tiring winter, our skin can start to lose its colour and look a little worn. Don’t worry, a skin brush is an easy fix. Use one with natural bristles to stimulate circulation under the skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite. It will reveal a new vibrant layer underneath.
- Put the plans and protection in place for the summer
Now is the time to start preparing our skin for those summer holidays on the beach. And to have a healthy, well-nourished look, you need to feed your skin with moisturiser. Regular moisturising with a body cream or TriSerum will help to ensure your skin is smooth and well hydrated. And to add to that natural glow, don’t forget you could always book in for a course of natural spray tans with us!
Refreshing your hair care
- Ditch the synthetic and go natural
We tend to avoid fake and synthetic throughout most of our lifestyle when given the choice, but the one area we often neglect is our hair. Shampoos are often synthetic based, but because it’s not our face, we tend to overlook this. Make a change for the summer. The new ESPA Purifying Shampoo is completely natural, free from silicone, SLS and SLES. It also has a delicious spring-fresh smell!
- Restore moisture through conditioning
Those winter months can take a toll on our hair, slowly removing the moisture from it (despite the rain!). Restore this moisture, and protect from future damage (e.g. those dry beaches) with a nourishing conditioner. It will leave your hair smooth, strong and healthy!
- Blow away the last signs of winter
For those with hair in need of a really vigorous spring clean, why not try an intense conditioning boost with ESPA’s Pink Hair and Scalp Mud? You could even couple it with a delightful Stress Relieving Scalp Massage with Coconut Oil up in the Spa. It will get rid of any last signs of dull, dry and lifeless hair, and leave you looking fresh and invigorated, ready for the summer.
