Spring Is here!
As the seasons change, the weather changes along with our bodies and our bodies’ needs. This is most visible on our skin, so proper skin care is vital.
Here are some ways to prep your skin for spring.
It’s a common misconception that sunscreen is only necessary for the summer. Wearing sunscreen all year round is essential. Start using SPF 15 in the spring and then slowly work your way to higher SPF once the Sun shines brighter in the warmer months. By using sunscreen, you lower the risk of developing skin cancer. In addition, sunscreen helps you have healthier, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin.
Switch up Your Makeup
Let’s face it, nobody wants to see melting makeup on their face, so put aside that heavy winter makeup, and switch to something lighter. Keep your makeup routine light and simple. You do not need to go barefaced, but keep those pores unclogged and help your skin breathe. Keep your makeup and your face fresh and light!
Facials Are a Must
Treat yourself to a facial this spring, because there’s no better time for it. There are so many different facial treatments nowadays. Why not try a Kiehls mask? See what works best for your skin and assess your skin’s needs. Whether it’s a regenerating or a rejuvenating treatment or you simply want a good detox, deep cleansing, or exfoliation, you’ll end up with a healthier, radiant complexion.
Pump up on Vitamins and Fluids
It is only natural that as the weather becomes warmer, our body needs more water; the same goes for your skin too. Drinking plenty of fluids will help break down the fat and reduce skin breakouts. Don’t skip all those fresh fruits and vegetables. They are rich in antioxidants such as beta-carotene and vitamins C, E, and A which help keep the skin cells healthy and reduce signs of aging.
Don’t Forget About Your Hair
Much like your skin, your hair will feel dry after the cold winter months, so it’s really important to give your hair a little bit of a boost in the spring. First, chop those split ends. Much like your face, your hair needs some extra loving. Treat your hair to a good hair mask. There are so many options to try out. Try a clay-based one to get a healthy, grease-free look or a botanical-based one for added moisture and shine. Let your hair down, away from those warm, static-inducing hats, and leave those kink-causing hair bands at home.
A Healthy Diet Is Always Good for You
If you’re healthy on the inside, it will show on the outside. Avoid junk food because all the nasty ingredients will wreak havoc on your face by causing breakouts. Cut down on sugar and think about all the nutrients that you should include in your diet. Your whole body, not just your skin will be thankful.
Cleanse Your Face Every Day
This is one of the most important steps in your skincare routine. No matter how tired you are in the evening, ridding your face of all the makeup and dirt is a must. You can use foam, gel, or cream-based cleanser. After a thorough cleanse, apply toner and moisturizer. A proper skincare routine twice a day gives the best results.
So there you go, follow these simple steps and show your skin some love!
