5 Tips for a Natural Spring Glow

5 Tips for a Natural Spring Glow

As spring is finally here, most people will generally focus on spring cleaning by getting rid of their clutter, but there’s hardly any focus on how we can cleanse ourselves and get rid of all the damage that the winter can do to our skin (and bodies). I thought it would be great to encourage you all to with 5 tips to help your skin get a natural spring glow without the need of too much makeup. So here it goes…

 

Tip #1 | For those of you that aren’t vegan – cut down on the diary products. There are plenty of growth hormones, which are actually meant for little calves, that stimulate our oil glands and can clog our pores.

 

Tip #2 | Clean your make up brushes! A lot of people forget about it, but our makeup brushes can retain the bacteria that’s been on our faces. The same principle applies for our phones, most people don’t even think to clean their phones which is unfortunate because we use them all the time (and pretty much everywhere) – so don’t forget to keep your phones clean too!

 

Tip #3 | Invest in a good sunscreen! I cannot stress the importance of using the best possible sun screen that you can find. In the past, I never gave much thought into using sun screens and whenever I did I would just pick the first one that I would see which would end up leaving my skin all oily. I did a review on this ERiiS for Sun sunscreen which is perfect for spring – click here to read about it.

 

Tip #4 | Detox – This again is one of those tips that everyone knows that they could use, but end up forgetting about. Detox yourself inside out by eating and drinking clean. Cut out the alcohol, sugar and salty foods – our skin is like a weird sponge that not only glows when it’s getting the right foods and is cleaned properly but also starts getting dull when we neglect ourselves.

Tip #5 | Following on from what I said in the tip before – don’t be lazy with your skincare routine! Having a regular skincare routine and using a moisturiser that works well for you can do wonders for your skin. You know your skin and face better than anyone else so make sure that you stick to what you know works well with your skin.

Let me know what tips you all use to get your skin glowing naturally. ☺

Eriis for Sun Review

Now that spring is finally here and the sun keeps coming and going for a few hours, I thought that it would only be fitting to dedicate a post to the new season.

Most people assume that using any kind of skincare products with SPF (Sun Protection Factor) are restricted for the summer but you can still be exposed to UV rays regardless of what colour the clouds look like outside. I’ll be honest I am not usually someone that has paid much attention to the SPF count in skincare products, but as the effects of global warming are becoming increasingly clear in our everyday life, it seems absurd to not consider ways of avoiding skin damage.

About Eriis for Sun

ERiiS for sun - Latte Solare Sun Protection Milk
ERiiS for Sun – Latte Solare Sun Protection Milk

Eriis for Sun is a skin care range produced by the Italian company Iridiem Pharma and have been created specifically to protect all skin types from UVA, UVB and infra-red rays (including sensitive skin like mine). The skin care range produced by Iridiem Pharma are vegan, cruelty free, halal and FDA approved. So the protection milk can be used by all without any problems whatsoever.

This specific Sun Protection Milk is SPF30, providing high protection for when you are outside and on the go. If you are in the sun for quite some time then it’s best to reapply the milk to your skin so that your skin is protected properly throughout the day. Initially, once you spray the milk it looks like a cream but the milk has quite a light, almost weightless texture to it and blends into the skin quite easily without leaving that oily effect that creams have a tendency of doing. In the past few days I have actually been using this product as both a moisturiser and a primer, since the foundation I use has an SPF count of 15, which has lasted for most of the day for me. (I have to admit I do love the clean smell to it.)

Where to get it:

The ERiiS for Sun protection milk can be bought online from Vie Healthcare and is sold for roughly £15-£20, depending on the SPF that you want. I personally received the product from Sam Jennings PR Group and would genuinely like to thank them for introducing me to this awesome product. You can also buy the Eriis for Sun from Amazon.

Are Eriis for Sun cruelty free?

On the Iridiem Pharma website it’s not particularly clear whether their product is cruelty free or not, so I had to confirm via email before using and posting. I thought that I should share a quote of the confirmation with you all.

Paola Borgomastro from Iridiem Pharma confirms that ERiiS Sun is vegan and vegetarian friendly. In the formula there are not any animal derived ingredients. The ERiiS Sun range also has not been tested on animals.” 

Remember to apply the protection milk to your necks, hands and arms!
