Self-care is important all the time, but when the seasons start to change is the perfect time to take stock of your mental and physical wellbeing and build some healthy new habits!
We always encourage you to look at your South Beach Skin Lab routine as a time to take for yourself to unwind and appreciate your own beauty, but sometimes you need a little extra help to set great intentions for a new season.
We wanted to share with you a few simple and easy ways to give yourself a kick start this spring and take on the season with the best version of you!
Start A Journal
Writing things down is a great way to reflect, set goals and encourage yourself. It doesn’t matter if you’re recapping your spring break travels, jotting down big goals for work, or planning your summer vacation, putting a pen to paper is the fastest way to encourage you to be your best self.
It doesn’t have to be your cheesy teenage diary either, there are all sorts of cool new journaling techniques coming out all the time like bullet journals or mindfulness journals which allow you to quickly jot down thoughts and aspirations.
Turn Your Bathroom Into A Spa
Now don’t go calling the reno guys just yet, we mean this in a not so literal way. Turns out, there are tons of tiny tweaks you can do to your bathroom to make it the most relaxing place in your home and the perfect setting to recharge for spring.
While we highly encourage taking time to relax and have a bath. For extra indulgence, add aromatherapy candles, bath salts, and bubble baths. Opt for a lavender scent which has been proven to have calming effects and throw a few drops of essential oil into the tub. Voila! Your energy is going to be happy, relaxed, and squeaky clean as you spring into the season!
Give Your Skin Some Extra Attention
Weather changes can be responsible for a lot of different problems with your skin. From breakouts to dry patches, your skin is doing its best to fight off all the elements of change, but it can’t do it without you putting in an extra bit of attention.
For your face, make sure you’re cutting down on exfoliation as the temperature warms up and your skin is staying more hydrated. Getting your skin into a good routine of at least cleansing and moisturizing twice daily will help keep your skin balanced.
Not sure what you need for a spring skincare routine? Using an oil-based cleanser will help keep skin hydrated without clogging pores and a water-based moisturizer won’t cause your skin to go from too dry to too oily as the temperature and humidity climb.
Now throw on those gardening gloves and get out in the sunshine…Summer is almost here!
