As the seasons change, so do the needs of your skin. This blog will provide you with a guide for skincare across the seasons, ensuring your skin thrives no matter the weather!
Reveal Your Radiance In Spring
Renew With An Exfoliation
As spring blooms, your skin deserves a fresh start. Embrace the power of a gentle skin exfoliation to transition from the harsh winter months where a build up of dead skin cells can lead to a dull and lackluster complexion. Our dermaplane facial in Melbourne delicately removes dead skin cells and vellus hair, smooths the signs of ageing and reveals and radiant complexion. The perfect way to reveal your fresh, radiant skin for spring.
Transition To Lighter Hydration
Transitioning from cooler to warmer months means opting for a light moisturiser. In winter, a richer moisturiser is essential to fight dryness caused by chilly air and indoor heating. However, warmer seasons bring higher humidity and oil production, possibly leading to breakouts with the wrong moisturiser.
Consider Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream; the lightweight gel moisturiser for summer balances hydration and will allow your skin to breathe freely. As the need for sun protection and rejuvenation becomes more prevalent, shield your skin from harm with Elemis Dynamic Resurfacing Super-C Serum. This antioxidant serum with vitamin c keeps your skin vibrant and resilient.
Protect And Nourish In Summer
Choose Lightweight But Durable SPF
As summer's warmth envelops you, prioritise skin protection and hydration. Whilst sunscreen is non-negotiable all year round, if you haven’t found yourself the right face moisturiser for the warmer months, we recommend you start your day with the We Are Feel Good Sunscreen; Good Morning SPF 50. This lightweight sunscreen that offers broad-spectrum protection while infusing your skin with the benefits of Tomato Extract, Hyaluronic Acid, Jojoba, and Squalane.
Complement SPF With Antioxidant Rich Vitamin Serum
Complement your sunscreen with an antioxidant rich serum for optimal protection during your time outdoors. The Dermaceuticals Vitamin Rich Repair is the ideal concoction for replenishing and correcting skincare solutions. Infused with the essential daily vitamins; A, B, C and E, as well as powerful peptides and antioxidants, this serum visibly softens the signs of environmental ageing whilst nourishing the skin for rebuild.
Gentle Skin Treatments To Revitalise Sun Damaged Skin
In summer, it's vital to focus on hydrating and shielding your skin from sun damage while managing its exposure. A highly recommended summer skin treatment at Botanica Wellness Spa and Clinic is microdermabrasion. This gentle exfoliant for all skin types encourages skin brilliance and renewal without invasiveness or downtime.
Autumn: Rehydrate and Restore
Shift Back To Richer Hydration
As leaves fall, your skincare routine should transition too. Opt for richer hydration with the Pro Collagen Marine Cream Ultra Rich. This cream, enriched with firming ingredients, deeply hydrates and rejuvenates your skin.
Introduce Potent Ingredients
In alignment with the cooling temperature, introduce retinoids to your routine such as Retinal Active by Dermapen.

Chemical Peels For Advanced Skin Results
For optimal cell revitalisation in Autumn, chemical peels are ideal to renew and refresh the skin by removing dead skin cells and promoting collagen production. As the weather becomes cooler and the sun's intensity decreases, it's an ideal time to undergo a peel as there's less risk of sun sensitivity.
Botanica Wellness Spa and Clinic offers Advanced O Cosmedics Skin Peels, which are tailored to target specific skin concerns and can range from gentle for sensitive skin to intense for problematic skin looking for dramatic results. These peels utilise a combination of enzymes, peptides, and acids to exfoliate and improve skin texture.
