Kick off your boots and bid the bitter cold goodbye. Spring has finally sprung. “Out with the old and in with the new” is the mantra of the season, and it extends well beyond your disorganized drawers and cluttered closets. Spring is also the perfect time to revitalize your beauty routine.
All winter long, you relied on certain cosmetics to look and feel your very best. But what worked for you in December might not do the trick during the milder spring months. We’re not saying you have to abandon all of the products you know and love. But you may want to take a cue from the changing of the seasons and change up your beauty regimen.
Don’t know where to begin? Not a problem! Here are some simple suggestions to breathe new life into your current hair and skin care practices.
How to Spring Clean Your Beauty Routine
Repair dry, damaged hair
Have you been fighting frizz since early December? Let’s not even get started on the static and split ends… Restore much-needed moisture to your winter-worn locks with a nutrient-rich leave-in conditioner like Giovanni Vitapro Fusion™ Leave-In Hair Treatment. Perfect for all hair types, this organic treatment hydrates, nourishes and repairs strained strands while protecting them from harsh chemicals, styling tools and the elements. Imagine having a good hair day every day!
Slough away dead skin cells
Spring is a time of rebirth and renewal (dead skin cells are so last season!). Use a hypoallergenic, paraben-free exfoliating scrub, like Acure Brightening Facial Scrub, to slough away brittle, flakey surface cells and uncover smoother, softer, more radiant skin. In addition to removing dry skin cells, exfoliation can help eliminate clogged pores, blemishes, post-breakout discoloration (red marks), hyperpigmentation and even wrinkles.
Scrub your face regularly (at least two or three times a week) to achieve and maintain a healthy, even skin tone and a clear complexion.
Forgo heavy face cream
You may have turned to a thick, heavy-duty face cream during the harsh, dry months of winter. But spring’s here now and it’s time to lighten up. Choose an all-natural, lightweight lotion, like glonaturals Renewal Cream, for continuous moisture and a steady supply of the nutrients you need (think vitamins and antioxidants) to achieve a firmer, healthier, younger-looking visage. For optimal hydration and replenishment, apply this weightless formula to your face daily (and don’t forget your neck!).
Create a lighter canvas
Want to simplify your beauty routine this spring? Think BB cream. Beauty balms, blemish balms, whatever you choose to call them, BB creams have become wildly popular among savvy skincare enthusiasts—and for good reason. These mighty, all-in-one formulations replace traditional moisturizer and foundation to provide exacting hydration and flawless coverage.
We recommend Pacifica Alight Multi-Mineral BB Cream, which contains special pigments to illuminate and brighten the skin while automatically adjusting to its tone (goodbye blotches!). Stubborn signs of aging, like enlarged pores and fine lines, won’t stand a chance against this practical, powerful product!
