Is your skin ready for spring?

After a long winter, your skin has taken a toll – keep in mind, it’s the largest organ on the body.  Here are some Glo Staff favorites to brighten up your skin for the spring and summer!

  1. Drink water like it’s going out of style.  This will not only help your digestive system, but helps your skin radiate because it is hydrating your skin as well.
  2. A great exfoliate will shed the top layer of unwanted dead skin to give a great surface for moisturizer.  This could be a physical (scrub) or chemical exfoliation (AHA/BHA from Skin Medica). https://www.skinmedica.com/products/brighten/ahabhaexfoliating
  3. Moisturize AFTER showers because your skin will be able to absorb when it is clean and saturated with water.
  4. Your skin needs protection from the sun, not just during the summer months.  An SPF can be applied in the morning after your regular moisturizer. Our favorite is https://www.skinmedica.com/Products/Protect
  5. Take daily Omega 3 to help achieve and maintain great skin.  Omegas help by regulating oil production.  We like https://janeiredale.com/us/en/skincare/supplements/skin-omegas.htm
  6. Try a new spring look for your fingernails and toenails.  The hottest colors range from cool nudes to dark and dramatic.  https://www.harpersbazaar.com/beauty/nails/g12189903/spring-2018-nail-trends/?slide=1
  7. Sleep is imperative when trying to maintain healthy skin and body.  Recommended 8-10 hours of sleep per night will actually decrease affects of aging on the skin.  Additionally, the body and mind will recover during sleep, leading to increased cognition and memory.
  8. Until you are able to fully enjoy a healthy glow from the sunshine, a great substitution, which will add shimmer and just-stepped-in-from-the-beach look, is a combination of a cream blush combined with a tinted moisturizer, will give you an effortless glow! https://janeiredale.com/us/en/mineral-makeup/all-cheek-makeup.htm
