The temperature isnâ€™t the only thing to change once spring arrives; Â the arrival of a new season can wreak havoc on skin. Prevent any problems before they arrive by following theseÂ beauty tips.
Beauty from within
Before you even reach for your skincare, remember: a luminous, flawless complexion begins from within. Ditch sugar-laden treats and eatÂ you way to glowing skin by loading your diet with fresh fruit, vegetables, wholegrains, good fats and proteins. Our skin food favourites include vitamin CÂ and antioxidant-rich berries and kiwifruit and avocados and almonds with their ability for fend off free radicals withÂ vitamin. Well-hydrated skinÂ starts from within too: reaching for water instead of caffeine and sugary drinks will help you perfect your canvas.
While winter can leave our skin parched, the warmer months tend to have the opposite effect on complexions. Our skin tends to be better at retaining moisturise over spring and summer, so now is the perfect time to think aboutÂ switching your moisturiser out for something lighter.Â EstĂ©e Lauder Global Anti-Aging Wake Up Balm can be worn alone or over the top of moisturiser to boost your skin’s radiance. The lightweight formula contains an energising complex to awaken skin and light-reflecting pearls that enhance your complexion’s luminosity without weighing skin down.

Out with the old, in with the new
Itâ€™s time to wave goodbye to that serum or lipstick youâ€™ve been holding on to for far too long. Get rid of anything thatâ€™s lurking in your beauty cabinet or make-up bag that smells off, has changed colour or texture. On the off chance you do pick up beauty products you havenâ€™t used in quite sometime, you could end up doing your skin more harm than good â€“ once skincare and make-up is exposed to air â€“ not to mention hands, eyes and skin â€“ bacteria starts to set up home. Familiarise yourself with the little open jar symbols that youâ€™ll find on the bottom of most products. The Period After Opening symbol is a good indication of how many months a product can be safely used for.
