Glow up for spring

As the days start to get longer and lighter, it’s a great time to start forming some self-care habits and routines to discover your inner glow. From upping your water intake, to adding colour and comfort into your every day routine, your spring glow up is closer than you think!

1. Start your hydration journey

Finding your glow starts from within, and one thing your body needs is plenty of H20. From drinking enough water throughout the day, to making sure your skincare routine is high on the moisture, good hydration will ensure your skin is radiant and you’re full of energy.

Firstly, up your water drinking game and invest in a maxi-size water bottle – Oliver Bonas is now stocking the trending Stanley Quencher H20 Tumbler which TikTok swears by. Secondly, if you’re looking to perfect your skincare routine, start with a good, non-drying cleanser and a moisturiser that suits your skin; check out the Source Reotier range from L’Occitane to give your skin a thorough drench. And don’t ignore the rest of your body – LUSH‘s range of soaps, including this limited edition Jamie Reid spring equinox bar with coltsfoot infusion, oat flour and lemon, will cleanse and balance.

2. Create a restful space

When seeking that spring glow up, second only to water is developing a healthy sleep routine – and to do that, you need your rest space to be calm, comfortable and quiet. Adding new cushions and throws to your furniture can dramatically change up a room’s atmosphere, as well as creating a soft and comfy place to relax.

Meanwhile, the quality of the air is important for your sleep, so bring spring indoors and freshen the air with flowers with a new vase, like this botanical piece from Next. Finally, if you still have trouble drifting off, why not try some aromatherapy? From pillow sprays and diffusers, to this magical sleep balm by LUSH, there are plenty of wellness products to help you sink into your beauty sleep.

3. Find your spring fragrance

As flowers start to bloom and the air grows warmer, breathe in the freshness of spring with a brand new perfume. Surrounding yourself with a bright and fragrant scent – whether it’s a traditional eau de toilette or simply filling your bathroom with floral body creams, butters and balms – will have you glowing in no time.

Head to The Fragrance Shop for all your favourite perfumes – from Daisy by Marc Jacobs to Cloud by Ariana Grande. Meanwhile, if you’re searching for a new scent you can fully indulge in, Molton Brown and Rituals offer their deep and complex parfums as candles and fragrance sticks, as well as luxurious cosmetics.

4. Glow up your wardrobe

There’s nothing better than the feeling of putting away your winter clothes and shaking out your spring wardrobe – so while you’re there, why not add a brand new pop of colour, accessory or statement piece to also give your look a glow up?

Spring is a magnificent opportunity to pair up jeans with knitwear, or start hinting at summer looks with the use of layers. Check out some of the season’s hottest trends and head in to our fabulous fashion stores – from All Saints to Zara – to browse the latest spring/summer collections. You might find the perfect piece to give your outfit a renewed life!

5. Make time for you

Life is stressful, so carving out some time just for you to relax and recuperate is perhaps the most important path to unleashing your inner glow – whether that means taking yourself for a run, planning fun activities with friends or indulging in your favourite hobby.

This could range from buying a new cook book and planning a healthy lunch, to sitting down to create your own spring cross stitch art, like this one from Flying Tiger. Or for an extra special self-care treat, why not book in a relaxing therapy treatment at Leftfield? They offer everything from a full body massage to reflexology, and guarantee you’ll leave floating on air and with a noticeable glow.
