Spring Self Care: A New Beauty Routine
There’s no time like the present to get into the groove of a new grooming routine. Now that most of us are spending a lot more time at home during this pandemic, it's possible to carve out a little extra time for self-care.
Time to switch out heavier moisturizers for fresher options and refresh skin.
April showers bring May flowers!
Before jumping into the shower, start with an all-over body brushing with the Living Libations Body & Breast Brush. Once in, wet skin and smooth a sugar scrub head to toe like Crawford Street Coconut Raw Cane Sugar Polish or One Love Organics Vitamin C Body Polish.
Out of the shower, with skin still wet, apply a few generous pumps of One Love Organics Vitamin C Body Oil, or if you prefer, a lotion, like Crawford Street Lavender and Chamomile Soothing Body Lotion. (Insider tip: Keep your oil or lotion with a pump placed on the side of the tub or in view of when you step out of the shower to help you remember to apply it daily.)
If you're feelin' it, a couple of times a week, to decompress, put down the news and steady stream of social and spend twenty to thirty minutes in the tub with a generous dose of Osmia Recovery Salt Bath.
A French mask and regular facial massage are key to a fresh complexion.
This spring, add Odacité Bioactive Rose Gommage to your weekly routine to rid skin of dead cells and get a lovely spring glow. It comes with a brush for seamless application, and has a really fun method of removal: simply roll it off with clean fingertips and voila! A fresh complexion!
For nightly cleansing, apply a gentle cleanser, like Pai's Light Work Rosehip Cleansing Oil, and massage face with Odacité's Crystal Contour Rose Quartz Gua Sha. Rinse, then smooth on Consonant Skincare Vitamin B3 + Zinc Serum.
Opt for a tonic to soothe the soul.
