Spring into Beauty

Are you tired of being cooped up all winter? Are you ready to welcome spring and can't wait to spend more time outdoors? Before you throw off the cardigans and sweat pants, it might be time to take a long, hard look at your beauty routine. Just as you change your wardrobe for spring and summer, you should also change your beauty regimen for the warmer months. To look your best as winter draws to a close, consider integrating the following helpful spring beauty tips into your routine.
- Spring is the perfect time to reduce the amount of heavy face and body creams you use. While skin tends to be dry and cracked during the winter, spring and summer skin often needs less heavy moisturizing. Start using a moisturizer that delivers healthy nutrients your skin needs without lathering on too much cream or pore-blocking goop.
- If you aren't already doing so, boost your water intake in the spring. Winter can make you want to curl up at home with a steaming cup of hot chocolate and a good book. If you double-down on healthy water in the spring, there's a good chance your skin will be in better shape for summer swimsuit season. Your skin is a body organ and needs plenty of water to look its best.
- Spring is a good time to start thinking about sunscreen protection. No, summer isn't the only time you should protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays. Use a sunscreen appropriate for your skin type and pay attention to your local weather forecast. The sun can still be causing damage to your skin even on overcast days.
If you start paying closer attention to your beauty routine now, your complexion will be in prime shape by the time summer rolls around.
