As the weather heats up, get ready for spring by preparing your skin, your body and your wardrobe. Here are some fabulous beauty and style tips to look your best this spring.
Wear Less Makeup
In the warmer months, you should use much less makeup than you do in the winter. Put away the dark lipsticks and liners. This spring, keep your makeup routine simple. A tinted moisturizer is a lighter alternative to heavy foundation. For daytime, wear neutral color eye shadows and a coat of brown mascara. Add just a touch of lip gloss and you are good to go.
Drink Lots of Water
Water is great for your skin, your body and your overall health. Drink eight to ten glasses of water a day, even more if you are exercising. Always drink a glass of water before meals, it will make you feel full so that you eat less. Speaking of exercise, try to get in 30 minutes a day of cardio to start getting your body in swimsuit shape!
Exfoliate and Moisturize
To keep your skin fresh all year long, you need to exfoliate on a regular basis. Estee Lauder makes a great exfoliating product that is gentle and refreshing. Estee Lauder So Polished Gentle Exfoliating Scrub gets rid of dulling flakes while gently cleansing to leave your skin glowing and radiant. It’s got a great pineapple-coconut scent too!
You can get this scrub for around $22 at Estee Lauder counters at most department stores. Don’t forget to moisturize your skin too. The sun can dehydrate your skin, increasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In warm weather, choose a light facial moisturizer that has SPF 15 or more.
Color Me Beautiful
This spring, bright colors are going to be more popular than ever. When choosing spring dresses, tops, shoes and handbags, select colors such a bright orange and sunny yellow. Some of the hottest sandals of the season feature a strappy, criss-cross style in yellow, orange and even neon pink. Whether you are looking a pair of flip flops or stilettos, make sure the colors are bold and hot.
