As we transition from the cooler months of winter into spring and summer, our skin can be in need of an extra little TLC. Just as our wardrobes require an update from season to season—so too does our skincare!
While a relaxing holiday might be one way to achieve that lit-from-within glow—a killer skincare routine that’s packed with skin-loving antioxidants, vitamins and minerals is the best way to achieve long-lasting results and bring out your skin’s natural radiance.
Here, our Priori experts have put together their top tips on how to create the ultimate skincare routine as well as the products that are sure to result in clear, calm, dewy skin.
Choose A Cleanser That Does More
While cleansing daily is undoubtedly the best way to remove dirt, grime, makeup and impurities from your skin—what if your cleanser did more than that? By opting for a cleanser that contains ingredients like lactic acid, you can exfoliate and cleanse simultaneously, helping to better prepare your skin to absorb the nourishing actives in the rest of your skincare products.

No matter how amazing your makeup skills, dull or flaky skin will quickly halt that glow you’re seeking! While you probably already have a physical exfoliant—that contains those pesky beads designed to slough off dead skin—trust us when we say that a chemical exfoliant works even deeper. Even better? Find one enriched with Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) that work as a gentle peel to remove dead skin and reveal the fresh, luminous skin underneath.

Look For ‘Iluminating’ & ‘Brightening’ Products
Some of the most common skin woes include uneven skin tone, poor texture, hyperpigmentation and sun spots—which can all lead to a dull, lacklustre complexion. To help remedy these skin issues, it’s important to use targeted products that are designed to illuminate and brighten skin. Ingredients like licorice help to lighten dark spots, while hardworking retinol helps to resurface or ‘shed’ your old skin. To best capture the brightening benefits, a serum is a perfect addition to your skincare routine and when applied after exfoliation when your skin is primed for deep penetration—you can experience truly transformative results.
Moisturise. Moisturise. Moisturise.
A multitasking moisturiser can act both as a protective barrier—to lock in hydration as well as all the nourishment from any products you’ve previously applied—and provide your skin with the ultimate moist, dewy finish. Opt for a rich cream with plenty of added vitamins—especially during the warmer months when your skin is likely to be the most parched.

Don’t Forget Your Eyes
As the most delicate skin on our face, our eyes can often be neglected—and also be one of the first places to show our skin sins. Brightening up the undereye area, however, can make a huge difference in someone’s overall glow. Search for an eye cream infused with caffeine to combat circles and puffiness, as well as gentle antioxidants to treat the area with the sensitivity it requires.
