Out with the old, in with the new. It's time to say goodbye to winter and hello to spring - the season of the new beginnings. The earth is starting to come to life again, with the flowers blooming and animals returning. Don't let your skin fall behind during this transitional period. Make adjustments to your routine so that you can achieve that beautiful spring glow! Given that spring is right around the corner, there is no time like the present to start prepping your skin for the new season to come.
Here are our top five tips for keeping your skin happy and satisfied during this transitional period:
- Gentle Exfoliation
In addition to skin cell regeneration, exfoliating also allows your skin to absorb products better. However, make sure to choose gentle and natural exfoliants, such as Canadian Glacial Oceanic Clay. Harvested from the shores of Northern British Columbia, this silky-soft clay possesses over 60 minerals and rare elements that nourish and replenish the skin. With the help of its ionic properties and osmotic powers, this clay pulls out toxins and draws out impurities from the skin. It removes excess sebum, tightens pores, and boosts circulation, all while hydrating and revitalizing the skin.
Bl'eau's Organics Collection and Transcend Collection Glacial Oceanic Clay masks do an exceptional job at helping your skin achieve the natural spring glow it deserves. Infused with 100% pure Canadian Glacial Oceanic Clay, the unique organic and natural sea elements contained will leave your skin feeling softer than ever.
- Boost Hydration
Do you want to know the secret behind our amazing products? It is a story that dates back 2.5 million years. The magic behind the hydrating Glacial Mineral Water happens in nature. By using ingredients derived from the depths of the earth, we are able to live in balance with nature itself. Thanks to the natural cyclical flow between the oceans, seas, and glaciers, the Glacial Oceanic Clay used in Bl'eau's products is constantly being replenished and filled with over 60 minerals and rare elements.
Glacial Mineral Water contains an abundance of skin-nourishing sea minerals that instantly refreshes and cools the skin. It does this all while improving the suppleness and elasticity of the skin. This Glacial Mineral Water gently detoxifies the skin, removing any traces of dirt or impurities. It restores the skin's natural pH level, smooths the skin, and rehydrates the skin. Daily use of the Glacial Mineral Water results in healthy skin cell renewal and a clearer complexion.
- Remain Hydrated
Staying hydrated is crucial for maintaining both a healthy body and healthy skin. Drinking water plays a major role in keeping the skin hydrated. The most important - yet often most overlooked - step to keeping the skin hydrated is drinking water. Our body's cells and organs need water. In fact, according to scientists, the skin becomes more susceptible to skin imperfections and abnormalities when dehydrated. It doesn’t matter how amazing or effective your skincare routine is if you don’t take the extra step of keeping it hydrated from the inside. Therefore, make sure you always keep a bottle of water on hand.
- Eye Care
For some individuals, flowers blooming doesn't only signify the beginning of spring, but also the beginning of allergy season. The skin surrounding the eyes is thinner and more delicate than on other parts of the body. It is also more sensitive, which is why it tends to swell and turn red when irritated. From removing your makeup to applying your skincare products, make sure to be extra gentle around the eye area. Since the skin in this area is extremely delicate, you do not want to risk further irritating it this allergy season.
Cooling eye treatments with natural ingredients like Glacial Mineral Water can help de-puff and soothe the eye area. When applying products to the eye, make sure to dab it around the eye area with your ring finger, never rub or tug. Make sure to apply the product to your eyelids as well! If you have time, finish off your routine with a facial massage to maximize benefits.
- Body Care
Sweat and an overall increase in oil production often trick people into abandoning their body care routine. Don't be fooled! Even though your skin might look hydrated on the surface, it still needs to be pampered. Rather than completely abandoning your routine during the warmer months, simply swap out the heavy creams for lighter lotions. Start prepping for the summer months now so that when the time comes to pull on your shorts and tank tops, you won't have to worry about finding a quick remedy for dry skin.
There's no need to spend money at the spa because you can bring the spa home by doing treatments and pampering yourself right in the comfort of your bathroom. When choosing a body moisturizer, the key is to choose one that provides the skin with deep hydration but remains comfortable and lightweight on the skin. Make sure to pay extra attention to your elbows, knees, and heels during application as these are common problem areas for people. It is also best to do your skincare and body care routine right after taking a shower while your pores are wide open and extra absorbent.
Take initiative this spring and stay ahead of the game by following these five tips. We hope your spring is filled with joy, happiness, and glowy skin.
