11 Best Beauty Tips for Transitioning to Spring: Part III
In our previous two posts, here and here, we shared 8 beauty & wellness tips for transitioning to spring. We promised eleven, and here are the final three: 9. Do some spring cleaning in your beauty cabinet and toss items that have expired, recycling them if possible. If you find that you no longer use a product but it's still good, offer it to a friend, relative, or co-worker. Don't share items like eyeliner or lipstick, but things like body lotion, fragrance and hair products are perfect for swaps or giveaways. Often you can re-purpose beauty products by thinking of alternative uses - say, an oil blend you're not wild about for your face may be a wonderful cuticle treatment or body moisturizer, or a shampoo you don't like could be used to clean makeup brushes. 10. Don't forget sun protection. You may want to ramp up the SPF as you spend more time outside in the warmer weather. We use Soleil Organique. Be sure to use enough product, reapply every few hours, and use SPF on all exposed skin, including neck, chest, hands, arms, legs, and feet. Alternatively, find a place in the shade or wear a scarf or hat to cover up from the sun's rays. Keep in mind that 10-15 minutes of exposure without SPF should do the trick for a healthy dose of vitamin D. Antioxidants are our preferred method for repairing (and preventing) UV damage that can lead to signs of aging. Sun-worshippers take note: applying Kahina Argan Oil before sun and Kahina Serum after will make sure skin stays supple, moisturized, and protected. 11. Stay the course with eye products. Spring and summer is not the time to skimp on eye-specific treatments. Wear sunglasses whenever you are out in the sun and continue with Kahina Eye Serum, Eye Cream or both. At Kahina, we always say to do what feels best for you and don't be afraid of a little trial and error. If you'd like a more detailed skincare regimen tailored to your particular needs (& seasonal changes!) please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'd be happy to recommend an updated Kahina routine. Happy Spring!
