It might seem a little early to be thinking about spring, but February is a perfect time to start thinking ahead to the changes to upgrading your spring routine. As the weather begins to improve, the climate grows more humid. This means that instead of combating the dryness that comes with winter weather, for many, your skin care focus will shift towards removing excess moisture and oil. In addition, the nature of environmental pollution you encounter will change. This makes early spring an ideal time to stock up on cleansers, exfoliants and toners.
Even if you’re not looking to upgrade your cabinet for spring as yet, pay day’s a great reason to either stock up on some old favourites, or try something completely new altogether. If this sounds up your street, then check out our list of essential February pay day buys.
The Glycolic Facial Cleanser from Anthony for Men is a non-foaming cleanser which can be used to remove dirt and grease from the face.
