With this weekend officially being spring, I’m excited to “re-set” and prepare for warmer weather. Makeup trends are fun to explore with the change of a season but the foundation to a fresh and beautiful face is your skin. As the weather changes, so does my skin, and I love preparing it to looks (and feel) its best. Here are four of the products I will be using a lot of over the next few days to prep my skin for spring.
A coffee scrub.
After a long, dry winter, there’s a lot of dead skin all over our bodies that needs to be polished away so our soft, new skin can shine through. My favorite way to exfoliate all over? A coffee scrub. There are a few companies that offer great ones; scroll to the end of the post and everything will be listed in the scroll bar along the bottom. Once you’ve found one that you think you’ll like, hop in the shower and take some time to care for your skin. Scrub your worries away!
Glam Glow Thirsty Mud.
This is one of my all-time favorite products. Once you’ve cleansed and exfoliated your face (more on that later in this post) use this facial cream for some serious hydration. I love that it’s a mask that doesn’t have to be washed off. You can slather it on before bed and wake with perfectly moisturized skin. This is the one face mask that ALWAYS accompanies me when I travel. Perfect for hydrating your skin to spring ready perfection.
Sugar lip scrub.
Don’t forget that your lips are skin too! Winter is hard on your lips and they need some extra loving to get spring ready as much as your skin does. This sugar scrub from fresh is my favorite way to gently exfoliate my lips. Quick, easy to use, and smells wonderful. Follow up with some Vitamin E oil and seal it in with your favorite lip salve.
Clarisonic cleansing brush.
If you were to only buy one tool for your skin…it should be this. Not only does it do wonders for cleansing and exfoliating your skin, but it helps your face cleansers last much, much longer. I see a marked difference in my skin when I don’t use my Clarisonic. My skin is drier, more red, and I have more breakouts. A few days of using my Clari and my skin is soft, smooth and more youthful. You simply get a superior cleanse with one than with your hands and the brush helps to remove dead skin that blocks your pores, causing acne. So please, treat yourself to one of these for spring. Or, send this blog post to the special someone in your life as a Mother’s Day “hint hint”. It is well worth it!
I have many more beauty and skin products that I love to use and I will be sharing more soon but these are my favorite for preparing your skin for spring.
Whatever you do, be sure to cleanse and moisturize every day to keep your skin healthy and glowing.
