Ways to rejuvenate the skin for spring

Dry, dehydrated, flaky. These three words are often described as a side-effect of winter. As we come into spring, it is important to rejuvenate the skin by following a few simple steps, courtesy of the  Granny Mouse Country House Spa team

Exfoliation can be done at home and at the spa. At home treatments can include brown sugar mixed with a moisturizer, or honey. If you prefer a spa treatment, opt for something that contains some sort of hydration agent as well.
Exfoliation is necessary to remove dead skin cells that hinder moisture permeation into the skin.

Drink more water
In the winter months, we tend to lean towards hot drinks that comfort us and make contain quite a few extra calories. Water will help the body to detox, as well as aids in weight loss, so ensure at least 2l of water is consumed daily.

Cut the heat
Warm baths and showers are preferential. Hot showers can dry out the skin.

When it comes to hydration, applying a moisturiser on a daily basis is a must. Due to the change of season, you may feel that you would like to intensively moisturise your skin and this can be done with a spa treatment such as the CSpa Hydrating Body Wrap on the menu at Granny Mouse Spa. The wrap cocoons the body, offering a range of benefits such as exfoliation, and hydration with neroli and vanilla essential oils. This treatment also aids restoration and relaxation.

To treat the body form the inside out, you may want to consider Vitamin E oil which can be purchased from health stores. It is, however, important to consult your doctor before consuming any supplement.  Vitamin E Oil is also found in many lotions and moisturisers and is said to block free radicals from one’s body and support immune function.
