Transition your Skincare for Spring the K-Beauty Way

K-Beauty Skincare Spring Picks

As the seasons change, so does our skin, and so should our skincare.

With spring in full swing, it's time to swap those richer, heavier creams for warmer-weather products. Here's the lowdown on how to still maximise hydration whilst giving your skin a little extra room to breathe.

Our hand-picked team faves:

Gently exfoliating cleansers for spring

Gentle Exfoliants

With the harsh air of winter, it can leave skin flaky and dry. So, incorporating a super gentle exfoliant 1-2 times per week can help slough off dead skin on the surface to reveal a fresher plumper complexion ready for the new season.
