Spring Clean Your Beauty RoutineNovember 4, 2018
Now that winter has bid its farewell, it’s time to spring clean and start anew! So pack away those winter coats and fuzzy sweaters, whip out your cute spring dresses, and swap out your heavy duty cold weather beauty products for some fresh, brand spankin’ new vegan and cruelty-free ones to better accommodate this season’s beautiful sunshiny weather.
To assist you in transitioning your skin, hair, and makeup routines for spring, here are a few products I highly recommend…
There’s nothing quite like an invigorating face scrub to slough off dead, wintery skin cells. This scrub uses exfoliating coconut, walnut, rose hips essential oil, Jojoba, flax and borage, with the purpose of improving skin’s appearance and texture. Pacifica is one of my favorite beauty brands because all of their products are entirely vegan and cruelty-free. I also love that their products are available at Target in the US.
Now that the sun is shining, you’ll be spending more time outdoors, so you’ll want to protect your skin from everyday pollution. This lightweight, hydrating, super emollient moisturiser combines an algae base with dermal proteins to help buffer the skin from dehydration and the elements. It’s designed to heal skin that’s been ravaged by age, sun, wind and stress.
Spending extra time in the sun also increases the chance of getting fine lines and wrinkles. Zion’s face mask uses sea kelp extract, which is rich in iodine, minerals, and antioxidants, to hydrate, improve cellular circulation, and prevent signs of aging. This mask also tightens the skin and helps clear pores.
For a deep clean, and we’re talkin’ intensive de-gunking, use this cleansing sponge with your favorite cleanser. The added turmeric is an excellent exfoliating agent and can help reduce the signs of aging such as dark spots and wrinkles. It is also known for its antiseptic properties. Just put a small amount of cleanser on the sponge and use in a circular motion while massaging your face – yep, it feels amazing! Don’t forget to follow up with a toner and moisturiser afterward.
This gentle, color-safe shampoo is non-toxic (sulfate-free) and is derived from coconut, corn, and sugar. It also has a lovely aromatherapeautic and purifying blend of tea tree oil, witch hazel, rosemary, and peppermint – smells absolutely refreshing! If you’re looking to thoroughly remove build-up including chlorine, hard water minerals, and styling residue, this shampoo is a must.
Spring is the perfect time to get rid of dull winter skin, and one of the easiest way to do this is to swap out your cleanser. This extra gentle, creamy facial cleanser contains super moisturizing organic olive oil, Moroccan argan oil, and cocoa butter; antioxidant-rich blackberry and rosehips; and refreshing, tingly mint. It removes makeup and dirt without over drying your skin. It’s great for sensitive skin, too.
Now that you’re all set with your new cruelty-free post-winter skin and hair goodies, sit back, relax, and soak up some happy sunshine. Spring is finally here – yahoo!
