The transition from winter to spring brings with it a host of skincare challenges, from combating dryness to protecting against increased UV exposure. But fear not! We’re sharing our tips and key products to help you achieve a radiant complexion this season.

Hydration is Key: After months of battling harsh winds and indoor heating, your complexion is likely craving moisture. Transitioning to a lighter, hydrating moisturiser is essential for this time of year. Look for formulas enriched with hyaluronic acid to lock in moisture without feeling heavy. Applying a serum before your moisturiser can provide an extra boost of hydration, leaving your skin plump and dewy. We love: Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Cream Moisturiser, from Harvey Nichols – it’s results-driven formula floods your skin with moisture for a glowing canvas.

Exfoliate Gently: Bid farewell to dull, flaky winter skin by incorporating gentle exfoliation into your routine. Opt for chemical exfoliants like alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) or beta hydroxy acids (BHAs) to slough away dead cells and reveal a fresh, radiant complexion. Be sure not to overdo it – two-three times a week is sufficient without causing irritation. We love: Reveal Yourself by Trinny London. Powered by a highly active AHA complex, reveal your natural glow and balance hydration levels.

Sun Protection Is Non-Negotiable: With longer days and more sunshine (apparently!), protecting from harmful UV rays is paramount. Go for lightweight, broad-spectrum sunscreens with SPF 30 or higher. Don’t forget to reapply every two hours, especially if you’re spending extended periods outdoors. Incorporating a tinted sunscreen can provide added coverage while evening out your complexion. We love: bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Moisturiser Hydrating Gel Cream (SPF 30), from John Lewis. This three-in-0ne multi-tasker gives you the benefits of makeup, skincare and SPF.

Targeted Treatments: Spring is the perfect time to address any lingering skincare concerns, such as hyperpigmentation or uneven texture. Incorporating targeted treatments – like vitamin C or niacinamide serums – help brighten dark spots and improve overall tone. Additionally, retinol-based products can promote cell turnover and stimulate collagen production, leaving your skin smoother and more youthful-looking. We love: Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow – Niacinamide Hue Drops, from Sephora. The sheer tint evens tone with a warm glow, while niacinamide helps to brighten.

Embrace Lightweight Formulas: As temperatures rise, it’s time to swap out heavy products for lighter, more breathable formulas. Opt for gentle, gel-based cleansers to prevent pore congestion and maintain a balanced complexion. Hydrating mists infused with botanical extracts provide an instant refreshment throughout the day, keeping your skin hydrated and radiant. We love: Elemis Superfood Facial Wash Gel Cleanser, from Selfridges. Packed with balancing prebiotics, plant actives and vitamin-rich superfoods, it cleans and revitalises, leaving skin looking bright and radiant.

Ole HenriksenDon’t Neglect Your Eyes: The skin around your eyes requires special attention, especially during seasonal transitions. Opt for a cream specifically designed for this delicate area, to target hydration and nourishment while tackling puffiness, dark circles and fine lines. We love: Ole Henriksen Banana Bright™ + Eye Crème, from LookFantastic. The lightweight vitamin C formula encourages enhanced radiance over time, diminishing noticeable dark circles as it does.HN color wow
