HOW TO CHANGE YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE FOR SPRING

There’s nothing quite the feeling of Spring clean of the beauty cabinet. You may find that your skin does not change all that much between the seasons, in which case you may only need to make a few tweaks to your routine. For others, the change in temperature and humidity can really throw things out, triggering breakouts and congestion. To help you on your way to dewy, glowing Spring-ready skin, we’ve put together our top tips to overhaul your skincare routine and experience your best skin yet.

1. THE DOUBLE CLEANSE

Double cleansing is a method of cleansing your face twice: First, with an oil-based cleanser to remove dirt and excess oils, and again with a water-based cleanser to clean much deeper into the pores and address your particular skin type or concern. Begin with our Immortelle Divine Cleansing Balm to gently removes all traces of make-up and impurities, even pollution residue, or Cleansing Oil-To-Milk with Immortelle and Calendula and a silky smooth texture that breaks down visible traces of pollution and excess sebum). For the second cleanse, go for the Divine Foaming Cleanser if you prefer the anti-aging benefits for luminious skin, or our Aqua Reotier Gel Cleanser for a fresh, invigorating and clean feel to your skin.

STEP 2. EXFOLIATE

During Winter, our skin can get dry and irritated. As the air becomes more moist in Spring, our skin reacts differently to exfoliants. So now is a great time to gently exfoliate and help rid of any dry, rough layers on your skin. Start with our Radiant Scrub Mask. Enriched with freshly harvested pomelos from Corsica and natural fruit acids, this jam-like gentle scrub immediately works to exfoliate the skin. It helps to bring back the natural radiance to the complexion, while leaving the skin smooth and comfortable. You can also use it as a mask by leaving it on the skin for 3-5 minutes before rinsing.

STEP 3. SERUM

A serum is a concentrated liquid packed with active ingredients that target specific skin concerns. The molecules in a serum are super small, making it easier for your skin to absorb them. It’s an essential step in any beauty routine as it targets parts of your skin your other products just can’t reach.

Immortelle Reset Serum leaves you with skin that looks rested, fresh, more youthful and radiant.
Immortelle Precious Serum corrects the first signs of ageing, leaving your skin more plump and correcting fine lines.
Immortelle Divine Serum helps maintain the skin's youthful potential, bursting with vitality for skin glowing with beauty.
Reine Blanche Serum helps improve skin's evenness, luminosity and texture.

STEP 4. A LIGHTER MOISTURISER

Your skin retains more moisture during warmer months, so it's a good idea to switch out your heavier moisturiser for a lighter one. Our Aqua Réotier Collection is a water based collection to maintain the skin's hydration barrier without clogging pores, for skin that is immediately replenished, radiant and visibly plumped.

Our bottle of sparkling gel is as beautiful as it is effective. Made up of thousands of micro-bubbles, the Ultra-Thirsting Gel quenches the thirstiest skins, acting as a magnet for your hydration. If you prefer a creamier texture, the Ultra-Thirsting Cream is for you.

STEP 5. DON'T FORGET SPF!

More sunlight and more time spent outside means higher sun exposure. SPF is important all year round but should especially not be missed now.

For extra protection, opt for a moisturiser with SPF, like our Divine Cream SPF20 or Precious Cream SPF20, to protect from those harmful UV rays. These light-textured moisturisers help to reduce signs of aging and restore firmness to the skin.

We also love the Shea Butter Lip Balm SPF 30 to protect lips from UV effects and leave them nourished and soft. It's the perfect ally for a sunny day!

STEP 6. ADD A POP OF COLOUR

Spring is a great time to switch out your lip shade and play with colour! This is the season to bring out your pinks, reds, corals and oranges.

Our Fruity Lipsticks have a rich moisturising texture that melt on your lips leaving them with the perfect healthy-looking pout: sheer, shiny and evenly coloured. 

Prefer something a bit more subtle? Try our Delicious Tinted Balms. With a creamy texture, it's the perfect ally for dry lips looking for hydration, vibrant shine and natural touch of colour. 

STEP 7. FACIAL MISTS ARE YOUR FRIEND

As temperatures start to get warmer, we can start to sweat more. Many people’s first instinct is to wipe away sweat with their, not likely to be recently washed, hands. This can introduce oils and bacteria which can and will wreak havoc on your skin. 

Instead, it's a great idea to carry a facial mist with you to hydrate and energise the skin instantly for a more youthful and radiant look. Our facial mists are 50 ml in size, making them a convenient on-the-go size to moisturise and revitalise your skin wherever you go.
