How to energize your skin for spring

When March rolls around it always seems like the start of spring for me, but in my experience, we still have a fair few weeks of wintery weather to get through before we can benefit from a little sunshine (if we're lucky) and some warmer temperatures. With this in mind, it's the perfect time to double check on your skincare routine and get set for the new season ahead by energizing your skin.

You know how Mary Berry is always keen on the importance of layers in a perfect bake, well the skin is all about layers too. And in order to achieve the best complexion you can, feeding those layers with the right ingredients in the right order is the key to a flawless look.

One of the best ways to give your skin an extra boost is to use a serum. At the Lisa Franklin clinic we love AlumierMD products and in particular their ultimate boost serum. It's a lightweight serum which can boost the hydration process and is brilliant at reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

Retinol products are also great for this time of year. Alumier MD Retinol Resurfacing Serums can dramatically reduce the appearance of your fine lines and wrinkles and give you that extra glow you are looking for.

We recommend using products in the correct order as layering products provides the benefit from these more specialised ingredients. Think gels and serums first, followed by thicker and creamier formulation.
