The skin expert shares three key steps to undoing the effects of winter and getting skin looking heathy and glowing again

With an upscale skin clinic in Sydney’s Bondi Beach and a host of celebrity clients clamoring for appointments, Ingrid Seaburn has built a name for herself as an expert in delivering a smooth, bright and glowing complexion.

Her roster of dedicated fans include well-known personalities Pip Edwards, Celeste Barber, Delta Goodrem and Bambi Northwood-Blyth, who she often shares bare-faced selfies with on her Instagram, proof they love the results she delivers.

Though the stars are admirably committed to regular skin maintenance, the rest of us may have let our routines slip a little over the colder months. So what can we do to give skin a boost before party season hits?

The former Los Angeles-based beauty guru shares her top tips for getting skin back into great condition now that spring is underway:

“The shift in your routine and the steps to follow for reinvigorating winter ravaged skin for any age and skin type are simple, “says Seaburn. “Following these few steps will have your skin glowing and ready to enjoy some wonderful events looking fabulous!”

Seaburn’s top three tips to revive spring skin:

1. Micro-needling: If you have never tried micro needling, now is the time to give it a go. Needling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a safe and relatively minimal downtime procedure that triggers a wound healing response in your skin to induce platelet overdrive in order to deliver much needed nutrients and fresh turnover of cells at a dermal level. It gives your skin both short and long term benefits.

Aftercare is crucial to allow your skin to go through that process but the results are exactly what skin needs to rehydrate, re-oxygenate and look fabulous for a weekend event. It’s best to allow a few days of recovery so time it to have your appointment at the start of the week if possible.

2. Focus on serums: Now is the time to add some glow-chasing ingredients to your at home skin regime. If you’re not already using these key ingredients in your serums, it is time to start! Make sure you focus on your serums, the most important part of any skincare routine. For super glowy skin, make sure you’re opting for ingredients such as Niacinamide, Vitamin C and Kakadu Plum Extract which are wonderful ways to protect, brighten and invigorate skin. Know your ingredients and invest in good serums with a high concentration of the active needed. It is well worth the spend!

3. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate: Finally, your skin has most likely been sluggish through winter and dehydrated due to indoor heating and cold weather. This means it is time to re-hydrate your epidermis, which needs to be exfoliated and hydrated without causing damage to your precious Epidermal Skin Barrier.

Choose an enzyme based exfoliant like Lactic Acid (my favourite), or any fruit enzyme based product containing fruit enzymes such as Papain from Papaya or Pumpkin Enzyme which will gently slough away dead skin cells. Do this once or twice a week maximum as over exfoliation can cause more damage than good! Don’t forget to add in a Hyaluronic Acid serum to literally give your epidermis a drink of much needed water and seal with your moisturiser. Remember Hyaluronic Acid is an epidermal plumper, not an active, but very much a game changer!
