We usually tend to forego exfoliating our body during winter months due to laziness or sometimes simply because we are not baring much skin. Now is a good time to exfoliate to reveal smoother skin. Exfoliate once a week, face and body. You can buy exfoliating scrub from a beauty store or prepare one at home. It is fairly easy to do.
Body brushing is another way to exfoliate your skin. In addition, it also improves circulation and stimulates the lymph. We talk all about its benefits and how you should do it here Have you heard of Dry Skin Brushing.
Now that you will be wearing flip-flops and feet-baring shoes, it is important to take care of your feet on a daily basis. While you can get a pedicure once or twice a month, putting just a little effort in taking care of your feet every day will keep them looking smooth and pretty.
Scrub your feet to remove dead skin and keep them smooth. You can scrub everyday when it comes to the heels of your feet. Wipe them dry and immediately apply a moisturizer or massage a little oil. You can do this in the morning but it is best done at night so your skin has more time to repair and absorb all the goodness of your moisturizer/oil.
Warmer days mean skin that is oilier and can get sweaty. So what do you do with all your winter care products? Trade them for spring-friendly products.
Swap thicker consistency products that worked in the winters for a light moisturizer/serum and sunscreen. Use sunscreen with high SPF since you will be spending a lot of time outdoors now.
Apply eye cream not just at night but during the day too.
Opt for bright coral shades or pastel ones instead of darker shades for makeup and nail paint. Mix your foundation with moisturizer or use a CC cream. Use cream blush instead of powder, it will not get cakey. Your makeup should look light and natural.
Always keep oil blotting sheets in your bag. They are good for blotting if your skin feels oily or sweaty.
Drink lots of water/healthy drinks
Keeping your body hydrated is one of the most important things. Drink lots of water and healthy drinks throughout the day. Check out 5 Healthy drinks (not just tea) you need to try.
