With the colder months just around the corner, it's time to spring clean your skin and update your skincare regime. Seena Seka skin care expert at Calypso sun care and Safa, a leading range of organic skincare products says: " Winter can be brutal on the skin with it being exposed to not only the harsh cold weather conditions but also to heavily heated environments. The transition from winter to spring and a combination of extreme temperature differences can cause undesirable side effects to the skin, including reddening, dryness and greying.

"It is essential to follow a spring skin care regime to ensure your skin remains looking healthy glowing and youthful" Skin care expert Seena Seka, Calypso and Safa, added " I have three crucial rules when it comes to your basic skin care routine this spring. If you follow these simple rules you'll see immediate results.'"

1. Exfoliate. Investing in a good facial exfoliant can help remove dead and dry skin which is an common side effect during winter. Add this to your cleansing routine once a week. Not only will you feel fresh and look younger but this will leave your complexion free from all those old dry skin cells. Now you're ready to moisturise!

2. Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise! It is essential to maintaining a healthy glow. Applying a daily moisturising cream and oil is the perfect boost for your skin in spring to lock in moisture and restore skin's vitality and help revive a dull looking complexion. You might want to switch from a richer formulation used in winter to a lighter product for the spring months.

3. H20 is your best friend! Hydration is the key to ensuring healthy youthful looking skin. During the winter and spring months especially you will likely go from central heated rooms to walks outside which can dry the skin out dramatically. Make sure you drink at least 8 glasses of water a day to keep your ph levels balanced and ensure your skin is fully hydrated from not just the outside but from within. If you are exercising ensure you top up your fluids.
