Spring is the perfect time to take stock of your skincare products, reboot your beauty routine and get yourself set up for the sun to come.
Step 1 - ‘Spring clean’ your skincare
Go through your beauty cabinet and get rid of anything you haven’t used for the last 12 months or anything that isn’t pulling its weight. Remember, good skincare has a short shelf life and so you want to check those best before dates and toss out anything that’s been rolling around in your drawers since before you can remember.
Step 2 - Give your face a refresh
Over winter our skin cell turnover slows down and skin can become dull and dry. So now is the time to use an exfoliant that is not only going to get rid of any excess skin cells, but also one which will hydrate and revitalise skin. Our 2 in 1 Face Exfoliant + Mask is a luscious multi-tasking product that brings skin back to life in minutes.
Step 3 - Get on top of pigmentation before summer hits
Prevention is ALWAYS better than a cure but if you have pigmentation that’s been left unchecked all winter, now is the time to get it under control before you really start spending some serious time in the sun. Try our Brightening Eye + Skin Serum. It’s a beautiful light-weight serum that effortlessly fades sun spots, evens out skin tone and gives you a clean, bright complexion.
Step 4 - Start wearing SPF daily (if you're not already)
As the weather warms we start to spend more and more time in the sun, and so sunscreen has to become part of your daily routine. Choose one that sits light on skin and comfortably under makeup so you don’t have any excuses not to wear it. Our Protect + Clarify Daily Face Lotion is a super lightweight daily spf that also helps keep pigmentation in check thanks to the additional of Australian native snowflower.
Step 5 - Adjust your skincare routine as the weather warms
In late spring and summer our skin needs less hydration and so start to pare back the moisturisers as it heats up. Choose lighter face lotions over heavy face cremes, and apply less of other products that coat your skin. This is a really good time to listen to your skin: if its thirsty, give it hydration, but if its feeling heavy and more than moist, pull back on the creams.
Here's to a warm and sunny Spring,

Did you watch the most recent series of the War on Waste on the ABC? I really enjoy this show as its slowly opening our eyes to the issues we face surrounding waste. I love it because it leaves me feeling educated and aware. At the same time I’m left drowning in guilt. Is it just me?

I get asked this question a lot and it’s a good one. The fact that I’m a naturopath and I created these products is not enough to call them naturopathic. So what exactly does naturopathic mean and what makes Clémence products different?

As a naturopath, I’m always thinking about dietary and lifestyle recommendations to complement my organic skin care range. Drinking herbal teas has got to one of the easiest and most effective things you can do to further benefit skin. Not only do they taste great but the actives in herbs are absorbed and taken-up quicker than supplements.
