How to be fresh faced for Spring

March 17, 2020

Shaking winter from your soul and from your skin is a lovely thing. Days are lighter, brighter and warmer and full of birdsong again. This time of year puts a spring in your step. As gardens wake up and energy levels rise, it's the right time to give your skin some Springtime love.

My skin - like most people's - feels seasonally attuned. As soon as the days begin to lengthen and the central heating is turned off, it no longer craves thick, rich nourishment. I stop feeling as if I have to wrap it up and layer it against the weather. Instead, my skin wants lightness and freshness and speedy absorption. My skincare becomes all about prepping it for just SPF. I start wanting to wear next to no make-up, and I want my skin to be fresh-faced and glowing.

As I get older, each Springtime feels as if my skin come out of a mini-hibernation. I love nurturing it back to dewy, luminous, fresh faced health. This is what I suggest to give your skin a Spring wake-up call.

Get glowing

Our new Super Glow Mask is the perfect weekly treatment to bring your skin back to luminous life. Made from pure, potent plant oils, Super Glow Mask works in three ways. It exfoliates, deep cleans and nourishes to leave skin radiant and smooth. Lightweight, glow-giving watermelon and passionfruit oils give dewy radiance. Natural BHA salicylic acid gently exfoliates and smooths to reveal fresh new skin. Avocado and peach oils nourish and condition for beautiful, supple softness. As a tonic for the soul, Neroli oil provides a fragrance uplift which can enhance mood. Super Glow Mask is fantastic on skin which just feels a little congested, dull or ashy. I'm loving using it as part of my Sunday night #selfspa.

My daily skincare routine in Spring gets lighter and fresher too. My 3-step routine becomes all about achieving natural, bare-faced freshness.

The Votary 1- 2- 3

Begin with our original, cult Rose Geranium and Apricot Cleansing Oil. It's the most lightweight and gentle of our cleansing formulas. with a lovely easy slip on the skin. It contains nourishing apricot oil and jojoba, and is brilliant at whisking away every trace of the day. It’s for how clean, happy skin feels.

Follow with our clever Brightening Hyaluronic Serum. A refreshingly light serum, it's a delicate blend of plant extracts, glycolic and hyaluronic acid. It works to plump up and renew skin. Narcissus extract and glycolic acid smooth skin texture, minimise pores and fine lines, and even-out tone. Hyaluronic acid helps skin to retain moisture for profound hydration and a gorgeous glow. Gentle Neroli flower water refreshes and soothes. You can feel this serum banishing Winter from your skin. It feels fresh, fresh fresh.

Finish with our revitalising, lightweight Jasmine and Calendula Facial Oil. Hydrating and priming, it preps skin perfectly and is quickly absorbed to create the perfect base for SPF or make-up. Skin feels soft and supple.
