Embrace Radiance - Springtime Skincare Tips for a Vibrant Glow

As the flowers bloom and the days grow longer, springtime signals a season of renewal and rejuvenation. Just as nature awakens from its winter slumber, it's time to refresh your skincare routine and embrace the radiant glow of the season. Here are some essential tips to ensure your skin blooms alongside the stirring of the flora and fauna outside!

Hydration is Key

With the temperatures rising and the air becoming drier, it's essential to keep your skin hydrated. Opt for lightweight, hydrating moisturisers that lock in moisture without feeling heavy on the skin. Look for formulas enriched with hyaluronic acid or glycerine to replenish dry winter skin and maintain a dewy complexion.

For a super-moisturising and all-natural skincare solution, look no further than Rio Rosa Mosqueta Rosehip Seed Oil! With only three ingredients including vitamin E, Rio Rubignosa and Rosehip Seed Oil, this Chilean formula nourishes and keeps your skin glowing and moisturised. With its easy-to-use bottle and dropper and transportable container size, you can stay radiant on-the go! See the full Rio Rosa Mosqueta collection here.

Sun Protection

With the sun shining brighter, don't forget to shield your skin from harmful UV rays! Incorporate a broad-spectrum sunscreen into your daily routine, applying it generously to all exposed areas, including your face, neck, and hands. Choose a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher and reapply every two hours, especially if you're spending time outdoors.

Our Rio Rosa Mosqueta Day & Night Cream 50ml is formulated to protect your skin both day and night (be careful to add some SPF if you go out in the sunshine, though!)

Gentle Exfoliation

Say goodbye to dull, winter skin by incorporating gentle exfoliation into your skincare regime. Opt for chemical exfoliants like alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) or beta hydroxy acids (BHAs) to shed away dead skin cells and reveal a fresh, radiant complexion. However, it can be best to limit exfoliation to 2-3 times a week to avoid overdoing it and irritating your skin.

Spring Clean Your Products

With the change in seasons, now is the time to reassess your skincare products and adjust as needed. Swap out heavier creams and serums for lighter formulations better suited to warmer weather. Pay attention to expiration dates and get rid of any products that have passed their prime to ensure optimal efficacy and safety.

Nourish from Within

 Remember that healthy, glowing skin starts from within. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day and incorporate antioxidant-rich foods into your diet, such as fruits, vegetables, and green tea. These nutrients help combat free radical damage and promote a clear, luminous complexion. (You can read our blog about healthy foods too, for more tips!)

Protect Your Lips

Don't forget to pamper your lips, which can be prone to dryness and sun damage. Invest in a nourishing lip balm with SPF protection to keep your lips soft, smooth, and shielded from the elements. 

Consult a Professional

If you have specific skin concerns or are unsure about which products are best for your skin type, consider consulting a dermatologist or skincare specialist. They can provide personalised recommendations tailored to your individual needs and help you achieve your skin goals and the best protection possible.


With these springtime skincare essentials in hand, you'll be well-equipped to greet the season with a radiant glow! Embrace the beauty of spring and let your skin thrive with a new and rejuvenating skincare routine!
