Spring has finally sprung and we are ready to leave behind those dry winter skin blues. With sunny days ahead, it's time to transform your skin care routine.
1) Exfoliate & Faux Tan
With heaters running non-stop during winter, your skin can be left dry, dull and sometimes a little scaly.
For the body, we recommend you slough off dead skin cells with a manual body scrub and/or loofah. We like "Spoil Yourself SillyBody Scrub" by Prim. We then like to add a little golden glow to our skin with our Natural Self Tanner with DHA from sugarbeets.
For the face, we recommend using an enzyme based exfoliator. Even though manual, grainy face scrubs may feel like they’re getting your face clean, they’re actually quite abrasive and can cause micro-tears in your skin. However, enzyme exfoliators are usually obtained from fruit and natural sources and gently dissolve dead skin cells. And because you can’t over-exfoliate with enzymes, there’s no risk of damaging the skin. Mix a little bit of your face moisturizer with our Natural Self Tanner and you will get a gradual daily glow in place of sun.
2) Keep your skin hydrated
This is a must all year long, but especially when you plan to be out in the sun. This will help your skin will stay supple and glowing throughout spring! We recommend using our a pump of our Rebound Antioxidant Serum morning and night and spritzing Trifecta Power Mist throughout the day....extra bonus, this will help keep macne away!
3) Amp up your sun protection
All dermatologists agree that the number one anti-aging product is sunscreen. For proper protection, use a tablespoon of Broad-Spectrum SPF 30 mineral sunscreen for the face and a shot glass for the body. Pick a moisturizing mineral (not chemical) sunscreen formulated with antioxidants to block UV rays and protect skin from free radical damage and environmental pollutants.
In order to ensure you are getting proper protection on your face, we suggest you start with 2 pumps of our Face Sunscreen & Primer SPF 30 and follow it with 2 pumps of one of our Tinted Sunscreens (5 in 1 Tinted Sunscreen OR Impeccable Skin). The best way to apply it is to pump the product into the palm of your hand, dot the product all of your face and blend in with our Velvet Sponge.
For the body, we recommend using our Tinted Sport Sunscreen and/or Tinted Sport Sunscreen Stick for those days where you will be sweating or swimming and our lightly orange scented Mineral Body Sunscreen for everyday use.
