Transition Your Skincare Routine from Winter To Spring
1. Exfoliate. Exfoliate, Exfoliate.
With cold air comes dry, flaky skin. The first step is to exfoliate away the lingering layer of winter skin and unveil your spring time glow. To exfoliate your face, choose your a good face scrub or use our favorite Raspberry Refining Scrub. You must exfoliate your face twice a week. The Raspberry Refining Scrub polishes and energizes the skin with the antioxidants raspberry and marionberry, which brighten skin and polishes and refines the skin.This scrub gently exfoliates your skin delivering long-lasting moisture to help treat dryness.
2. Hydrate Yourself
Your skin is the largest organ in your body and composed of 60% water. So why does water intake have to do with your health of your skin? When your body lacks water, your blood will thicken. Your body’s response to this by pulling water from the cells that make up your skin causing your skin to become dehydrated. The first sign of dehydration is dry and flaky skin. The long-term effect of skin dehydration is that it will become less resilient making it more prone to wrinkles and environmental effects. That is why they say to drink 8 glass of water. Soooo drink up and stay hydrated!
3. Eat fresh fruits and veggies
Speaking of hydration, a great way to get more water into your day is eating fresh fruit and veggies. Packed with the water your system needs plus vitamins and nutrients, eating fruits and veggies will helps your skin retain its elasticity. Fruit and vegetables contain powerful antioxidants that help protect skin from the cellular damage caused smoking, pollution and sunlight. Some great food for healthy skin are avocados, sweet potatoes, lettuce, grapefruit, carrots, apples, and watermelon.
4. Use a lighter moisturizer and say goodbye to body creme
While winter had you slathering thick, heavy moisturizer all over your body, the same products can leave your skin greasy as the days grow warmer. Choose a moisturizer or body creme with a lighter consistency, and make sure it has SPF.
5. Time to up your SPF
Did someone say SPF? Now that the sun is back it’s time to up that SPF, especially if you live in Houston. Choosing a good facial moisturizer with SPF keeps the skin protected from the sun. Our Sheer Protection SPF 30 is a light cream, natural sunblock with zinc oxide that offers broad spectrum protection from UVA and UVB exposure. SPF helps prevent wrinkles, fine lines and can help prevent the development of cancer.
