Spring clean your skincare routine with The Herb Farm

12 September 2021|2 min read

Spring is here and when it comes those sudden urges to clean up, organise or start afresh will start to make themselves known.

If the heavy cloak of winter has been weighing you down, this is your time to shake it off and get inspired! 

Start by putting some spring into your skincare routine and start every day fresh-faced and feeling confident.

Say goodbye to dead weight

Take some time to think about your skin and whether you’re getting what you want from the products you’re using.

Are you just going through the motions?

Maybe your friend suggested something they like but it’s really not working for you. It’s also a good idea to make sure the skincare brands you’re using align with your values too. 

If sustainable packaging and safe, natural ingredients matter to you, check that they matter to the people that make your skincare.

If your current skincare isn’t aligned to your values or helping you to reach your skincare goals, it needs to go. 

Say hello to fresh and easy

Do you know what your skincare goals are?

If you have these clear in your mind, you’ll have more direction when you finally go hunting.

Skincare shouldn’t be one size fits all: skincare is personal. Not one person shares your exact same skin needs and your age and lifestyle will make a difference too. 


The Herb Farm Light Jojoba Face Cream assists in regulating sebum production giving skin an even and smooth texture.

You deserve to be picky about what you’re putting on your skin but it shouldn’t be complicated.

The Herb Farm has 4 complete skincare systems that are built around the needs of each different skin type: 

  1. Oily & combination skincare
  2. Normal (including sensitive) skincare
  3. Dry skincare
  4. Lasting beauty skincare. 

These skincare systems will start you on your journey to properly caring for your skin’s individual needs – and the 4-step system takes all the guesswork out.

So, once you’ve found out your skin type, most of the work has already been done.

How do you know what your skin type is?

Take The Herb Farm online skincare consultation to discover your skin type and the recommended products for your skin and lifestyle (keep your skincare goals in mind while you answer).

Here’s a quick breakdown to get you started:

Oily & combination skin

If you notice your skin (or parts of it, e.g the t-zone) becomes shiny, often only an hour or two after cleansing, or you find your makeup starts sliding around by the middle of the day, you probably have oily or combination skin.

The oilier areas of your face may have blackheads, white bumps, or acne and your pores might appear enlarged.

Normal skin

If you haven’t noticed a great excess of shine on your skin, and it also doesn’t tend to feel tight or flaky, you probably have normal skin. Your skin’s pore size is on the small side and they are not easily visible.

Sensitive skin

If you have sensitive skin, you may exhibit some characteristics of other types of skin, but you might have also dealt with a lot of redness and irritation. 

Sensitive skin is reactive and can easily become inflamed when exposed to certain allergens or substances.


The Herb Farm Repairing Rosehip Oil is rich in essential fatty acids to improve your skin’s complexion.

Dry skin

People with dry skin may feel a tightness to their skin. Dry skin can often look dull and rough with possible scaly patches or flaking.

If you have dry skin, you will generally have very small or almost invisible pores but could have more prominent lines.

Signs of ageing

While not technically a skin type of its own, we can treat it like one. Skin that is showing signs of ageing may have fine lines and wrinkles, a loss of elasticity, age and sun spots, and lacking a general radiance.

Pores tend to be enlarged and the skin’s surface may have poor texture.

Explore your skincare options

Once you’ve started using skincare that suits your skin type, you should start seeing improvements in your skin.(Psst: a regular skincare routine will keep the positive results coming and help keep your skin balanced). 

However, if you’re wanting a particular result, you might want to add in some more specialised products. 

The Herb Farm Enhance Your Skincare range includes luxurious face oils, facial serums with active ingredients, face masks, eye creams, and more! 

Whether you’re looking for a boost of hydration, collagen support, environmental protection, or just something a little bit more luxurious to add to your skincare routine you’ll find it and more in this effective herbal range.
