Spring, it’s typically a social season that flies right by, but this year is not like the rest. With COVID-19 and social distancing, this spring feels like it has lasted an eternity. Regardless, the weather is getting noticeably warmer, the skies are clearer and the days are getting longer. These subtle changes bring the beautiful feelings of hope and excitement. And, although there is a great deal of uncertainty, one thing is for certain, summer is right around the corner.
With that, the time has come to swap out your sweaters for crop tops and wool socks for flip flops. And no, it is not only your wardrobe that will need an overhaul. Spring is the perfect season to rethink your beauty routine. After all, the season for showing off skin is right around the corner. You can think of it as a spring cleaning of your health and beauty routine.
Why should you even bother changing your routine? Especially if what you’ve been doing worked for you just fine all winter and spring. The simple answer is the season. Your body actually changes with the seasons, especially your skin. Throughout the colder months, your skin is more prone to cold burns and dryness due to low humidity and temperature. This, of course, requires avenues to warm your body and skin along with consistent moisturizing.
During summer, on the other hand, your skin is exposed to a whole new set of conditions. The glaring sun could leave you with sunburns and uneven tans. And then there’s the humidity and sweating which can have an impact on breakouts, clogged pores and so on.
As we transition to warmer weather it’s important to not only switch up your routine but also prepare your body and skin for its new seasonal needs. So, where do we start? Glad you asked…
There is one very important thing to cover…Quality products make all the difference.
Your beauty routine is only going to be as successful as the products you use. Your skin faces the elements day in and out. It’s constantly working for you as your first line of defense. It only makes sense to nurture and care for it with products that are not only safe and natural but also composed of high-quality ingredients so your skin can continue to be its best for you. Think about it, the last thing you want is your skin putting up a fight against both the scorching sun and the overabundance of chemicals in your moisturizer.
So that begs the question, what products should you use?
Rather than listing specific brands or products for your summer skincare, we’ll do you one better. We will teach you how to pick out the right product and how to figure out what is and isn’t safe. That way, you can choose the best options for yourself based not only on what works and is good for you but also on your personal preferences.
Without further ado, here are the 3 must-have features of a good beauty routine product for the new season…
Effective UV protection. To be fair, sunscreen protection is important all year round. However, with the intensity of the sun and the length of the days, you have a greater need during the warmer seasons. Therefore, make UV protection a priority when picking your beauty routine tools whether it is moisturizer, lotion, or makeup. In this case, something with an SPF value of over 50 should get the job done right.
Natural and effective ingredients. A good spring cleaning product for your transitioning beauty routine should also be composed of natural and/or organic ingredients. These offer your skin a nice and healthy glow, unlike anything you would ever get with synthetic knockoffs.
With the natural ingredients, effectiveness in beauty routines depends on the compounds they bring to the table. The most important in this case are vitamins like C and E, collagen, amino acids, and fellow ingredients that contribute to beautiful and healthy skin. You can look for ingredients like soothing aloe vera, moisturizing coconut oil, protecting jojoba oil, restoring rose, cleansing witch hazel, and so on.
Zero chemical additives. This one speaks for itself, but harsh chemicals are not doing you or your skin any good. Remember, everything you put on your skin is absorbed into your body so you might as well keep it free of harmful chemicals.
Now, if you are one who appreciates a product suggestion, we have one for you. It’s called Nutrabeautiful. Filled with all-natural ingredients, antioxidants, and vitamins, Nutrabeautiful is lightweight, fast-absorbing, and hydrating. It promotes soft and supple skin, minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and is an excellent remedy for the elements that summer brings.
Your outer glow and beauty routine are not isolated to the products you put on your body. Actually not at all. Rather, the food and products you put in your body are a major part of this equation.
With that, it’s just as important to work on yourself from the inside out.
The skin is a great indication of what is happening on the inside. When your body is well-fed, your gut is in balance, your stress is in check, and things are working as they should it shows on your skin as a healthy outer glow. The same holds true for the opposite.
