Skin for Spring - Part 1

Cleansers and Toners

The perfect time to re-evaluate your current skincare routine and make a change for the better!

An article by Christopher Bell, skin care specialist for Jarrold.

Christopher BellWe all know how changes in the season can play havoc with our skin especially after the cold winter months. Now that Spring is here and Summer is on the way, we want to get our skin into tip top condition so it’s ready to face the holiday season.

Being a therapist and a self-acclaimed product junkie, I have had the great joy of working with and being able to try some of the best products on the market. I have trained with award winning spa brands such as Darphin, L’Occitane, Leighton Denny and many more. I have also picked up many tips and tricks along the way too.

SkinSpaIn our newly refurbished Jarrold Beauty Hall, you will find a treasure trove of wondrous and unique brands to suit everyone’s wants and needs from Crème de la Mer and Darphin to Burts Bees and Dead Sea Spa Magik, you are guaranteed to find something that you will love.

This season is all about getting your skin in perfect condition to achieve that no makeup look ready to fight in the no makeup revolution! All you need is a bit of time, dedication, a good routine and this can be achieved in no time!

I have chosen a few fantastic products that I think you will love and are perfect for the transition from Winter to Spring/Summer.

Darphin Aromatic Cleansing Balm with Rosewood 70mlDarphin Aromatic Cleansing Balm with Rosewood 70ml

Perfect for skin that is really lacking hydration and vitality. This is a great product as you can pop it on and leave like a mask while you soak in the bath. The smell is divine! It leaves your skin beautifully soft and supple and will be perfect for mature skin types too. This one is probably best to use at night as it’s something that takes a bit more time and is a really indulgent cleanser. Great for removing all that stubborn makeup and uses natural waxes and essential oils so perfect to prepare you for a great night’s sleep.

Ren Rosa Centifolia Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser 100mlRen Rosa Centifolia Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser 100ml

This is a great product for people who are on the go as it is a two in one cleanser and exfoliator. It uses gentle jojoba beads to help slough off those dead cells although I would still do a more thorough exfoliation about once every two weeks. Perfect if you are travelling, so this is the one I take with me everytime I leave the house!

L’occitane Shea Gentle Toner 200mlL’Occitane Shea Gentle Toner 200ml

I really like this toner as it’s a gentle alcohol-free make-up remover rich in shea extract and floral waters that moisturise and tone the skin in one step. Apply L'Occitane Shea Gentle Toner morning and evening, alone or in conjunction with a cleansing milk. It respects the fragility of the eye area and is dermatologically and opthalmologically tested.

Caudalie Grape Water 75mlCaudalie Grape Water 75ml

The Caudalie Grape Water is formulated with 100% organic Grape Water extracted straight from the grapes during the grape harvest. This mist refreshes, tones and moisturizes the skin at any time of the day. It is an excellent toner when used after cleansing or is ideal to refresh and hydrate your skin during the day.

Caudalie Grape Water is also enriched with moisturising polysaccharides and mineral salts and can be sprayed onto your face at any time of day for a quick refresher.

Expert tip: 'For even greater freshness, store the spray in the fridge. Perfect for holiday or for those hot summer days. It can also be used as a makeup fixer after having applied your foundation. Simply mist over the skin for a fresh and dewy finish.'
