Sunny days are coming, our hibernation is almost over: two good reasons to refresh your beauty routine with natural and easy everyday steps.
Beauty tips to prepare for spring
1 - Try « skip care »
With this beauty routine from Korea, go minimalistic by focusing on cleaning and moisturizing the skin morning and evening. Rather than applying lots of products, choose multifunctional care that cleans, moisturizes and protects the skin in (almost) one single step. With fewer products, the skin can breathe better, and so can the environment.
2 – Treat imperfections rather than hiding them
A blemish to do away with? Apply a homemade mask with honey and cinnamon. Honey has antibacterial and healing powers, while the antiseptic properties of cinnamon stop imperfections from reappearing. Mix one tablespoon of liquid honey, preferably organic, with half a tablespoon of cinnamon, apply and leave on for ten to fifteen minutes before rinsing with warm water.
3 - Use vitamin C for cosmetic care
Vitamin C is essential for our health and strengthens our immunity. It also has the beneficial effects of reducing wrinkles and fine lines, and neutralizing free radicals that damage the skin and accelerate signs of aging. So choose products enriched with vitamin C, and put it on your plate (citrus fruits, peppers, kiwi, broccoli, etc.) to nourish the skin from the inside.
4 – Pamper your eyes
Since your eyes are the only part of your face on display at the moment, make them look their best with targeted care. Apply eye patches with cornflower to reduce dark circles and puffiness, and slip the anti-fatigue eye roll-on with organic cornflower into your purse, so that you can soothe and illuminate in one step at any time of the day.
5 – Try a digital detox
Reconnect to the present moment by disconnecting your smartphone in the evening and at certain times over the weekend. To avoid temptation, switch it to airplane mode and put it in a closed box with all the family's devices. On weekends or on holidays with loved ones, do a digital detox challenge to see who can go the longest without checking social media. And to go one step further, do a "Screen Time" diagnosis on iOS and set yourself limits.
Have a lovely spring!
