SPRING CLEAN: 4 Ways To Prep Your Skin For Spring

1.) Don’t Skip The SPF: Sunscreen isn’t just for summer. One of the best ways to protect your skin year-round is incorporating a lightweight SPF into your morning makeup routine. Not only does SPF ward off damage down the line, but it also helps to defend your skin against discoloration and brown spots. Even in those spring showers, 80% of the sun’s rays can still pass through the clouds and damage our skin.

2.) Scrub, Scrub, Scrub: Think of exfoliating as getting rid of your metaphorical winter coat. Over the winter, our pores clog up with environmental pollution, excess oil, makeup and dead skin cells and this can result in a dull, acne prone complexion. Exfoliating not only helps you shed dead skin cells from winter but it also helps to boost your circulation and stimulate the production of glowing new skin. Our obsession is Peace of Mind Scrub, it has hints of lavender flowers and honey and feels like Spring in your shower: https://www.nourishandrefine.com/shop-1/peace-of-mind-scrub-by-waxing-kara

3.) Lightweight Hydration: During the winter, we are prone to reaching for heavy moisturizers to soothe our dry skin. In the spring, we want to transition into a lightweight face and body oil to keep moisture locked into the skin, but not weigh us down. A lightweight moisturizer will also keep you looking dewey, not wet, once the real heat kicks in. Our everyday staple is our Luxury Face Oil: https://www.nourishandrefine.com/shop-1/protect-nourish-luxury-face-oil-1

4.) Drink Up: We’ve heard this beauty advice over and over again, and I’m guilty of rolling my eyes. Listen up, your mother was right. Your body is made up of 65% water, and it’s so important to replenish that reserve. Water helps to purify skin by flushing out toxins and pollutants that may get stuck in our bodies. Grab a lemon, some sparkling water and cheers! The more hydrated you are, the brighter and healthier your skin will be.
