After months of dry and cold weather, frigid temperatures and artificial heating a new season is finally on the horizon. Flowers bloom, birds chirp, colour is restored and our skin emerges from a cocoon of intensive Winter moisturising. Spring is the time for renewal, regrowth and regeneration. Your skin is definitely ready for a change in seasonal skincare.
With the right skincare regime in place, and a little Spring clean of your skincare vanity, you will be well prepped for the warmer mornings that add a little Spring in your step.
Our Top four Spring skincare essentials:
A gentle exfoliator to smooth out those rough and uneven skin-tones after Winter removing unwanted dead skin cells – is a must!
With the warmer weather approaching, you can allow for a less heavy and all-rounder daily moisturiser that can be used day and night;
SPF SPF SPF – always and forever. Even the slightest bit of UV-rays causes sun damage;
Consider a Retinol Vitamin A serum – Vitamin A is effective for ageing, acne and dark spot concerns.
Retinol inhibits collagen breakdown that causes elastosis, unclogs blocked pores, reducing acne breakouts. It also promotes cell turnover, encouraging new cell growth for a more even complexion. With this power combination, you will be giving your skin all the tools it needs during this seasonal transition. It’s time to replace those jackets, scarfs and jumpers for sunnies, hats and tank tops. What better time to embrace your skin, than in a new season.
What’s even better is that this Spring SKIN functional and skinfluencer Dr Dudu Kgoebane have partnered up and created a fully comprehensive and holistic Spring Skincare box that has all the essentials you need in one place, that won’t break the bank. This LIMITED EDITION collaboration encourages accurate skincare choices with educational content that is aimed at providing skintelligence (skin intelligence) accessible to everyone. Skincare shouldn’t be hard and they are here to help.
In this limited edition skincare box you will receive:
6% Mandelic Tonic – Gentle Exfoliating Tonic
Mandelic Acid has a large molecular structure which makes this acid suitable for sensitive skin. Mandelic acid has keratolytic and bactericidal properties and regulates the sebaceous glands. It is a gentle exfoliator, suitable for sensitive skin that smooths rough and uneven skin tone which make it a suitable adjunctive treatment for acne.
Daily Moisturiser with 5% Black Ginseng and ATB Complex
A daily skincare staple for hydrated, healthier skin. The active component in ginseng is called ginsenosides. In order to obtain the highest level of ginsenosides, the root must be distilled using steam. After three distillation cycles, red ginseng is the result. Black ginseng undergoes nine distillation cycles, yielding the highest possible level of ginsenosides. Black ginseng extract contains 300% more actives than red ginseng.
0,3% Retinol – Oil based Vitamin A
This is an oil-based Vitamin A that is great for a first time use of Retinoids. Suitable for sensitive, dry and combination skin types.
“When we decided to create this one-of-a-kind skincare box for Spring, choosing the correct products based on ingredients and powerful formulations was at the top of our list. SKIN functional’s product range is expertly formulated using optimal concentrations of effective and trusted ingredients to restore the skin’s optimal functioning. We chose products that deliver potent treatments that bring you everything your skin needs with reproducible results, helping your skin cope and transition seamlessly into Spring,” added Dudu K.
