Spring has sprung my loves and you know what that means, time to switch up our skin routine!When it comes to skincare, the two most important things for me are exfoliation and sun protection! These are two things you most likely already incorporate into your daily routine (at least I hope so!) but it’s time to kick it into high gear and show your complexion a little extra lovin’ now that the seasons are changing!
Having a good exfoliant to get rid of all the dead skin cell buildup caused by the dry, winter air is key to revealing glowing, healthy looking skin! If you normally exfoliate once a week then add another day of exfoliation. I personally use a gentle exfoliating cleanser daily but I always make sure to do an exfoliating scrub once a week to really get rid of everything my skin has carried around throughout the week! If you don’t use an exfoliating cleanser then I recommend doing a scrub twice a week-on Sunday’s to help rejuvenate your skin and mid-week on Wednesday’s to give it a little refresh!
I absolutely SWEAR by SkinMedica and all of their products but their AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser is one of my favorites! This is the first step in my routine and it’s gentle enough for me to use both in the mornings and evenings. It contains natural ingredients such as jojoba oil,sugar cane extract and citrus extracts that seriously leave my skin feeling silky smooth and looking radiant afterwards!
As for a good exfoliating scrub, Feeling Beautiful Charcoal & Black Sugar Facial Polishing Mask is my go to and it’s super affordable!
Did you know that 90% of skin aging is due to sue exposure?! I knew it was definitely a factor but yikes I didn’t know it was that much! Luckily the products from Supergoop cater to protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful ways and now that the weather is warmer and the sun is out to play,it’s important we apply SPF daily. No matter if I’m wearing make up or not, applying sunscreen is an essential part of my skin care routine and I refuse to leave the house without it! Supergoop’s Superscreen Daily Moisturizer is my fav right now because of it’s lightweight formula and it contains SPF 40!
If Supergoop is a little on the pricier side for you, then Cetaphil’s UVA/UVB Defense SPF50 Daytime Moisturizer is another great option that doesn’t leave your skin feeling greasy and provides great protection!!
Having youthful looking skin not only consists of having a good skin care regimen but I believe it also has a lot to do with what we put into our bodies so try to have a clean diet, drink TONS of water and for a little extra glow try taking Love Wellness’ Good To Glow supplements that contain Vitamins C and E as well as collagen!!
Here’s to glowing not only in the Spring and Summer but all year round babes! If you have any other tips or products you like to use, please share them with me in the comments below!!
