Spring is the season for renewal and cleansing. It's a great time to refresh your skin care routine and recommit yourself to wellness and self care. Here are 7 skin and wellness tips for Spring.

7 Simple Skin Care and Wellness Tips

1. Wake up with an energizing morning scrub.

Coffee lover? Start your day by mixing a few tablespoons of coffee grounds and sugar with a little bit of shea butter. Take this mixture to the bath or shower and gently rub on your skin. If you're a coffee lover like me, you'll love how the coffee aroma wakes you up and energizes you for the day. The coffee combo with sugar removes stubborn dead skin cells that accumulate on your body during the winter months and the shea moisturizes your body for a healthy glow.

2. Get your feet sandal-ready with pedicures and shea butter.

Have your feet been cramped up and shut in with heavy boots and socks? Now that the weather is warming, it's time to start giving your feet some love and attention.

Start by get a pedicure from your favorite spa. A great pedicure will include a soak, scrub, care for your nails and cuticles and warm towel and a relaxing massage. If you really want to go all out make sure hot stones are involved. Finish up with your favorite polish and you're ready to go. Keep your feet smoothed and nourished between pedicures by applying shea butter to feet daily.

3. Refresh your fragrances and go subtle.

Looking for a signature scent change? Spring is a lovely time to wear more green and floral notes. Look for fresh citrus and flower blends to lift your spirits with the rising temperatures. Go subtle and look for single and dual note fragrances.

It's no secret, I prefer simple fragrances to more complex blends. Heavy, complex, cloying fragrances are out. The ability to wear pure and simple fragrances displays your confidence and understated beauty.

4. Treat yourself to a facial mask.

Weather you splurge on a professional facial or do it at home the ritual of a facial should always be high on your self care list of things to do. Spring is the perfect time start using facials with brightening fruit extracts like our Apple & Papaya Brightening Face Mask. Our simple, yet powerful face mask blend is packed with antioxidant rich botanicals and extracts. Combine it with your own honey or yogurt for even more skin brightening power.

5. Focus on your cleansing routine.

Since spring is all about cleansing and renewal, it's a good time to make sure your facial cleansing routine is top notch. A good cleansing routine will include a nourishing cleanser for your skin type, a toner or facial mist and a moisturizer.

At the very least, you should be using some variation of these three products. Don't skip the toner. Facial toners add hydration and balance to your skin and a level of cleanliness that can't be achieved with washing alone.

Want extra credit? Find time for a quick clay cleansing treatment with one of our facial masks for an even more complete cleansing routine. Use it after cleansing and before your toner.

6. Get outside and move.

Spring is the perfect time to get outside and reassess your exercise routine. For me, spring means I can run and bike outside without freezing and truly enjoy my surroundings. The fresh air exposure also prompts me to start working on my balcony garden.

What do you like to do? If you made a resolution at the beginning of the year to be more active and lost your motivation a bit, no worries, spring is the perfect time to recommit and find the routine that works for you.

7. Recommit to meditation.

Finally our last tip for spring renewal is to start or recommit to a regular meditation practice. Meditation has remarkable benefits for your health and well being. It helps you to gain clarity, focus, balance and increase happiness, emotional stability and intuition. Meditation should absolutely be a part of your life.
