Detoxing your body might come in the form of salad bowls and celery juice but detoxing your makeup and skin care routine comes in its own form of Spring cleaning. Here at Aevi we suggest these essential steps for resetting reset your clean skin care and makeup routine for spring:
Dispose of expired products. Start with going through your makeup and skin care and get rid of products that you have had longer than 6 months – 1 year. You might also want to evaluate which products work for you and continue using.
Clean your brushes and applicators. This should be something that you do on a weekly basis, but as we all know, life gets in the way of some of the most essential acts of kindness to oneself! Using your shampoo or facial cleanser, simply use a few drops in your palm of your hand, swish around your moistened applicators and brushes, then rinse thoroughly in clean cool water. Air dry your tools with the ends of the brushes and applicators hanging off the edge of surface.
Switch out your winter products for spring products. Often the aim of winter skin care is to deeply hydrate and can include the incorporation of products like retinols. For Spring, you can begin to bring in your more lightweight moisturizers, and of course a mineral-based SPF. Our Aevi Oil-Free Face Serum is an excellent alternative for replenishing the skin and promoting a youthful appearance, while preventing an overproduction of sebum, which can be more common in the warmer months.
Rethink your makeup routine. Spring is a fabulous time for experimenting with your makeup! It’s a time to don dewy skin and bright, lush colors. You can start to do the dew by applying the Aevi Nourishing Face Oil after cleaning your face and while your skin is still damp to help lock in moisture and hydration. This helps replenish the skin of nutrients that help your skin to glow.
Springtime is an excellent time to try new clean beauty products as your skin is not weighed down by the heaviness of emollient rich products of the winter, and not muddled from the excessive warmth and sunshine of the summer months, which can cause the skin to be stressed. Pastels, fun designs, and bold, bright lips are all easily incorporated in Spring, and can elevate your self-esteem by bolstering your artistic style.
