After a long winter, spring is a breath of fresh air. It’s time to get back on track and spring-clean your beauty routine. Here are some tips to help you with your skin and makeup routine.

Make sure you are using your sunscreen. You may have set it aside during the winter months, (though you should be using it all year long) but get those bottles back out. Protecting yourself from sun damage is important. Remember to use it now so that 10 years down the road, you will not have sun damage.

Exfoliate your skin! Ideally this is another thing you should be doing all year round, but with warmer days approaching you, will want to give your skin the attention it deserves. Exfoliate your entire body, not just your face. Scrub those dead skin cells away, and feel how soft and smooth your skin becomes.

Spring-clean your beauty bag. Purge the expired and outdated makeup products, and replace them with some spring classics. Add a new shade of eye shadow, a bronzer to give you that summer glow, a spring lip gloss shade and new mascara while you are at it.

Update your skin care products. You probably don’t need the intense moisturizer you have been using all winter anymore. Thick creams were appropriate for that time of year, but they aren’t always necessary in warmer months. Consult with your skin care therapist, who can recommend appropriate product changes for you.

Spring is in the air, and it’s time for new beginnings. I hope you find these tips refreshing for the new spring season! Give our office a call at 814.231.7878 and schedule an appointment today.
