April showers may be Mother Nature’s way of bringing May flowers, but they’re also a great reminder: it’s time to lighten up our head-to-toe body and skincare routine. Here’s how and why
Have you been told to lighten up lately? The phrase is frequently used in conjunction with humour when we don’t get a joke, in relation to difficult situations when we take ourselves too seriously and in accordance with the weather, when we literally swap our winter wardrobe for looser, airier clothing. Well, with spring temperatures on the rise, you can now apply it to your head-to-toe body
and skincare regimn, too.
“We have a milder climate now,” explains Charmaine Cooper, the education manager for Dermalogica and the international Dermal institute Canada. “That means we’re being more active and need to lighten up on the emollients and barriers we use to shield our
bodies from the outside world.”
