Springtime Skincare

skincare routines

It’s officially hit the point where we can get our required vitamin D from the sun again (hurray, bye bye Winter!), so here are a few tips to help you make the most of the sunlight and give your skin a sun-kissed healthy glow.

·       Exfoliate – It’s time to kiss goodbye to the dead cells of Winter that can add dullness to your complexion. So, grab your favourite scrub and get buffing away to reveal your inner glow!

·       SPF Protection – Even before the heat of Summer (fingers crossed), the sun’s UVA and UVB rays can cause skin damage and premature ageing, so be sure to add products with SPF to your skincare regime.

.       Cleansing ­– Fallen behind a bit on a cleansing routine in the Winter months? Worry not, now is the perfect time to Spring clean your skincare! Just 1-2 minutes of cleansing a day will lead to clearer and healthier looking skin.

What are your favourite skincare routines to get ready for the warmer months?

Happy Spring everyone!

Feeling the workday starting to drag? Fed-up of April showers? Fear not, we’re here to brighten up your day and add some sizzle! So, pour yourself a cup of tea, grab a biscuit and get settled in while we liven up your lunch hour.

On The Ocean Breeze…

Now the weather is finally getting warmer (freak snowstorms, we’re ignoring you), our thoughts are turning to sandy beaches and warm oceans. Sipping a pina colada from a coconut underneath a palm tree sounds perfect right about now. So, if you’re ready to escape the 9-5 and embrace your inner Moana then we have some perfect swimwear for you! And don’t worry, you don’t even need the bod of a demi-god to look good in these beauties. 

Freya are absolutely killing it with the Sundance UW Padded Hi-neck Crop Bikini Top & Hipster Bikini Brief. The beach-ready cobalt is combined with a modern tribal print that will help you sizzle this Spring/Summer.

 

Elomi have gone totally tropical in this beautifully flattering Cubana Moulded Cup Swimsuit. The swimsuit features clever panelling and a smoothing effect to give the perfect silhouette poolside. 

It’s fair to say Disney’s Polynesian princess has had a huge influence on fashion this year, with tribal and tropical patterns and bold, punchy brights taking centre stage. Fantasie’s Mahe UW Halter Tankini Top & Mid-Rise Bikini Brief add some stylish sophistication to high-fashion.
