Winter is not the friendliest of seasons when it comes to your hair and skin. Hence, you need to pay your body due diligence by spring cleaning your beauty routine, so to speak. It might entail changing the products you use to ensure that your skin gets gentle but effective treatment during spring without sacrificing beauty. Spring forward with the season with some of these beauty guidelines.
Ditch the Foundation
When the warmer months come rushing in, it is time to tuck your foundations behind. These products are a little too heavy for the warm months of spring and summer. Instead, switch to a CC cream as they provide a natural-looking glow to your skin. Make sure to look for CC creams that come with sunscreen protection to ensure your skin isn’t damaged from the sun.
Spring is all about simple makeup statements. Hence, focus more on your eyes to create a bit more drama to your look without the constant need for bold lip colours. You can go for a high-end mascara that provides more even and defined coat. Meanwhile, you can also try adding a splash of colour to your lashes to make the look more fun and bubbly. The best colours to work with during spring include a khaki bronze, navy blue or plum.
Invest in Serums
With the hot weather, your skin can easily get oily during the spring and summer months. Hence, you do not need a use for moisturisers. Instead, switch it up to using serums because they are lighter in formula and therefore not as greasy on the skin. Serums also do a better job at penetrating deep within the skin as compared to a regular skin moisturiser. Hence, you can enjoy longer lasting hydration on the skin.
Always Use a Primer
You spend hours each morning putting on your makeup – don’t you just hate it when you see it melting under the heat of the sun? For this reason, a primer is a good beauty investment for spring. It makes it easier for the makeup to adhere to and cling to your skin. It therefore eliminates the need to constantly re-apply your makeup. Primers also do an excellent job of covering any imperfections on your skin – bonus!
Dream of having healthy, glowing skin for spring? Exfoliate! This is an essential part of your beauty routine if you want to have beautiful skin that glows. Old skin or dead skin cells can build up over time. Hence, you need to gently exfoliate them so they are removed from your skin and you can get new, glowing skin. But too much exfoliation is not good either. Try to keep it within 3 times a week so you are not being harsh on your skin.
Whether you plan on hitting the beach or go on a road trip, an essential part of your spring beauty routine is hair removal. There are modern devices available nowadays to make hair removal as easy as possible. But if you prefer the old fashion way of shaving or waxing, make sure you have taken into consideration some safety precautions to keep from harming your skin in the process.
Sun Protection is a Must
Obvious, right? But it still needs to be repeated. Always wear sunscreen to protect your skin whenever you are going to be exposed to the sun’s harmful UV rays for a long period of time. Apply the product about 30 minutes before venturing out into the sun, giving the product enough time to penetrate deep into the skin layer.
Waterproof Makeup is Your Friend
Hot weather can make you sweat easily even when you might be lounging around by the shore or strolling the city. Hence, it pays to invest in a waterproof makeup. This can keep your sweat from washing off your makeup and make it last through the day.
