Spring is in full bloom. It is time to shift your skincare routine. The change of the weather causes changes in our hair, skin, and how we apply our makeup. During the winter, we focused on richer moisturizers and exfoliating to keep our skin fresh and hydrated. Here is a skincare guide for the season of Spring!
Choose lightweight everyday products
This season, people are looking for effortless beauty products. A “No makeup, makeup look” enhances your natural beauty, without covering it up, using minimal “makeup”. Lumiere de Vie’s Lumi-Sticks are perfect for just that. They are packed with skin nourishing ingredients, these all-over sticks condition and hydrate while adding gorgeous, subtle color to your skin. Just apply a color for blush and your lips, then another for dewy highlight. All there is left to do is a dab of concealer and you are ready to go!
Use gentle exfoliators
Opt out your exfoliating clay mask for a gentler face scrub. Lumière de Vie Hommes’ Exfoliating Face Scrub helps leave your skin refreshed and smooth to the touch. The scrub texture is made from ivory palm seed, a highly effective botanical and sustainable exfoliant. It helps to remove dead skin cells, excess oil and unclogs pores to get that Spring glow!
Add antioxidants to your diet & regimen
Fruit, vegetables and dark chocolate supply antioxidants and vitamins that help protect your skin from free radicals and sun damage, which keeps the skin looking younger and more radiant. Some fruits and vegetables not only contain antioxidants but also healthy amounts of vitamins C and E, which can fight wrinkles. Try to introduce more citrus, bell peppers, broccoli, strawberries, kiwi, almonds, and sunflower seeds.
Cut back on heavy creams
The first thing to look for when transitioning your skincare for the Spring is a light-weight moisturizer. The Lumiere de Vie’s Matte Moisturizer helps to hydrate skin while balancing shine. With humidity, oil control is key. This matte lotion also helps to even out skin tone while giving the skin a radiant appearance and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Amp up your SPF
Protect and care for your skin with the Lumière de Vie Daily Brightening Broad Spectrum SPF 50. It’s a silky, fast-absorbing crème that provides high protection from UVA and UVB exposure while soothing, brightening and evening skin tone. Apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure. Use a water-resistant sunscreen if swimming or sweating. Reapply at least every 2 hours.
