It’s time to store those sweaters, boots and coats away, spring is almost here! But before you throw on your shorts and sandals to enjoy the longer days and nicer temperatures, let’s remember how long our bodies have been in hibernation due to the winter season. Our skin may not be the smoothest, some body hair may not have been removed and our dry feet can probably use a little pampering to get rid of the rough skin that has accumulated. Here are a few tips for a beauty spring body cleaning makeover to prepare you for spring time!
- Treating your skin to a full body exfoliation treatment 2-3 days before a waxing appointment is a great way to remove dead skin cells and prevent any ingrown hairs that may occur after hair removal. The trick is to gently rub on a body scrub in circular motions to loosen the skin.
- Moisturize everywhere like there is no tomorrow. I recently discovered argan oil as a great face moisturizer that hydrates and even controls oily skin. For the rough skin on elbows, knees and heels, massaging good old petroleum jelly works just as well as it replenishes moisture loss.
- Pamper hands and feet with a much needed spa treatment and have fun picking bright spring colors for your nails like pinks and corals.
- Go on a shopping spree to treat yourself with new makeup. The spring season always offers new makeup collections with bright and bold colors for all skin tones.
