SPRING IS THE TIME to think about updating your health and beauty routine
to fit the changing seasons. Step into spring with these helpful tips that will
bring you out of hibernation and into bloom!
Spring is all about fun, flirty styles. Welcome warm weather with a new
haircut. Try a bouncy bob or layering to change things up. Not gutsy enough
to get a cut? Try a fun updo.
Bump up the volume for spring by turning limp hair into luscious
pumped-up locks with a bodifying shampoo.
As the days get warmer, it’s good to be out breathing fresh air and being
active, but beware of the sun: Its ultraviolet rays are no friend to your skin.
Spring is the time to exfoliate the dry skin left over from winter’s harsh
temperatures. Use a gentle exfoliant to wipe away dead skin, which can
prevent moisturizers from working and cause makeup to look caked on.
Exfoliate twice weekly and you’ll have the kind of soft, smooth skin you’ve
Spring is all about what’s in bloom. Invigorate your senses with the smell
of freshly cut flowers or ripe fruits. Let the scents of spring transport you to
a different place—right in your shower. Try a moisturizing body wash that
leaves skin not only silky soft but fresh and fragrant too.
Indulge yourself in skin that shines. Try a moisturizing body wash that
leaves skin radiant. Your gorgeous glow will give you the confidence to take
on the new season.
Break out that razor. Warmer days mean you get to show some leg! After
shaving, be sure to apply a moisturizer. You’ll feel more comfortable and your
skin will glow. Alcohol-free lotions will reduce dryness and irritation.
Remember, no matter what season
it is (or age you are), it’s important to
keep your skin protected. Follow these
basic guidelines every season and your
skin will be healthy and smooth.
• Start moisturizing at an early age. The
earlier you start, the better you’ll be
able to protect your skin from the
signs of aging.
• Strengthen skin by choosing moisturizers that contain vitamins A and E.
• Lock in moisture after a bath or shower by applying lotion to your skin.
Hands and nails
Do your hands always seem dry, no matter what the season? Before you
go to bed, try using a heavy lotion or petroleum jelly. Then, slip on a pair of
cotton gloves or even socks. Your hands will be amazingly soft by morning.
Spring is the perfect time to reassess your lifestyle. Drinking too much,
smoking, stressing out and skimping on sleep and exercise will show on your
skin. If you’re healthy, your skin should be smooth and soft, with a rosy glow.
Jump-start the season with new beauty and health routines! A
