Spring will be here before you know it! Currently only about a month away, it’s time to start prepping your skin and body for the change in seasons. Here are six ways you can get yourself ready for spring.
1. Exfoliate the winter away.
If you don’t already, start exfoliating your skin. Winter can leave us with a buildup of dry flaky skin. Gentle exfoliants will remove the dead skin cells and promote cell renewal. (By the way, don’t stop at just your face — a simple sugar scrub will do wonders for the rest of your body!)
2. Find your perfect SPF product.
You should have been using sun protection throughout the winter, but if you haven’t, it is definitely time for you to get in the game. UVB rays only get stronger heading into spring and summer. Overexposure to UV rays is harmful to not only skin, but your overall health, and can age you faster than anything else!
Try Alastin HydraTint Pro Mineral Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 36 for a daily tinted sunscreen (that contains no potentially harmful chemicals).
3. Evaluate your moisturizer.
Wintertime often calls for heavier cream-based moisturizers or oils, but as you transition into spring you may find these too much for your skin. Switch them out for a lighter weight moisturizing serum. By the way, even if you have oily skin, you don’t want to skip this step. Moisture is vital for youthful, healthy skin!
4. Up your water intake.
While we’re on the subject of moisture, make sure you drink plenty of water. Beauty starts from the inside out! Staying hydrated is important all the time, of course. But as we transition into warmer months, our bodies (including our skin) need plenty of water to combat symptoms of dehydration and signs of aging.
Try a gem water bottle for a naturopathic twist on staying hydrated and increasing your overall wellness at the same time.
5. Get a facial.
What better time than spring to start anew with a fresh face? Bonus — it’s always nice to relax and get pampered by someone else! A good facial will take into account your specific concerns and leave you with a healthier-looking, radiant complexion.
Try one of Hawaii Blue’s customized facials that we offer for all skin types.
6. Start thinking about your beach body.
Did you gain a few extra pounds over the winter? Are you concerned about stubborn love handles that can’t be covered up by bulky winter sweaters? If you have a certain goal for swimsuit season, now is the time to start taking steps toward it. Whether that be your diet, exercise, a cosmetic procedure, or a combination, it takes time to get the results you want.
Try Hawaii Blue’s patented Lavasculpt procedure. It literally melts fat away from your problem areas — permanently.
