When it comes to Spring time, we all know that it means – cleaning out the house, changing out the decor, getting new clothes and if you own a home: yard work. But, there’s one thing that you may overlook in the midst of everything else, and it can really make an impact. What’s that? Your skincare routine. As your body’s largest organ, your skin is important. So take care of it! Even if this means trying a new skin care regimen every so often. So while we’re at it, let’s discuss five ways to spring clean your skincare routine.
Ways to Spring Clean Your Skincare Routine
1. Add vitamins by eating your vitamins. A well-balanced diet is important to overall health and your skin. Vitamin A, for example, Beta-carotene is an antioxidant. Antioxidants help to protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. Vitamin A is important to skin repair and maintenance. What can you eat that will help you get your daily vitamin A?
- Cooked carrot
- Dark, leafy green vegetables
- Dried Apricots
- Cooked sweet potato
- Sweet red peppers
2. Exfoliate your lips – your lips may have noticed a bunch of damage over the winter. Now that spring is here, take some petroleum jelly, liberally apply it on your lips, add some sugar, and brush your lips. Yes, brush them! It will help turn over the flaky skin on your lips.
3. Cut out the alcohol – at least before a big event. Heading to a spring graduation? A wedding? Alcohol can impact your skin’s elasticity, so watch your drinking! Plus, asa hepatotoxin, alcohol releases toxins, which can emit an odor even well after you’ve had your last drink.
4. While you’re at it, add water to your day. And real water! Find your favorite reusable water bottle, fill it up, and drink it throughout the day.
5. Finally, don’t forget to moisturize! Find the right moisturizer for your general body and another one for your face. Broken skin leaves you at risk for infection, but it also can make you look older, as well as just worn out. For this reason, keep your skin supple, trap the natural moisture in your skin and feel great. This is super important if you’re waxing. My friend would use Celeste Waxing and they always recommend plenty of moisturizing.
And to truly nourish your post-winter skin, oils are a natural way to seal in moisture for a brighter and more balanced glow. Oils derived from seeds, nuts and plants provide skin with age-fighting vitamins and Omega-3 fatty acids that work together to repair skin damage from climate and daily stress. Sustainable Youth® anti-aging skincare contains only the purest blend of natural oils that work together to rejuvenate your skin from the inside out.
Sustainable Youth® Firming & Revitalizing Serum – Perfect for everyday use, Sustainable Youth® Firming & Revitalizing Serum contains soybean, orange and lavender oils which have anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties to improve the overall tone of skin – revealing a smoother, tighter and younger look.
Sustainable Youth® Super Boost Night Serum – Wake up feeling refreshed after using Sustainable Youth® Super Boost Night Serum’s calming blend of jojoba, rosewood and lemon oils that work together to fight aging skin and fine lines, leaving behind bright skin with balanced pH levels.
Sustainable Youth® Elasticity Cream – Formulated with organic virgin olive oil, virgin coconut oil and sweet almond oil, as well as shea butter, Sustainable Youth® Elasticity Cream helps to reduce inflammation, oxidative stress and the damaging effects of UV radiation, leaving skin looking balanced, hydrated and more youthful.
Each of these skincare products from Sustainable Youth has alasta® – a patented scientific discovery of the most potent immuno-stimulatory and concentrated anti-aging ingredient derived form inside the rind of the Aloe Vera leaf. alsat helps to improve elasticity and firmness through its ability to boost the body’s overall immune system performance.
