Well hello there Spring (kinda)
With the dawn of March, comes the expectation of Spring around the corner and I for one am excited. They say summer bodies are made in the winter and with Spring approaching there’s still time to step up your game before the ‘big reveal’. When the sun comes out, you really want to hit people with that POW, look at me now kind of vibe! It’s that time of year when you have to start caring for all the bits you’ve neglected over the winter months (when everything from the extra stomach roll, to an unwaxed leg, can be so cheekily hidden away under clothes).
Now I’ve got you all pumped, today I’ll be spilling the tea on how to get yourselves ready for the season ahead, top to toe.
Let’s face it, getting your face in fabulous order is a surefire way to prepare for Spring. The Out of Trouble‘ 10 Minute Mask from Origins is an absolute must for taking control of your complexion, combating skin problems and banishing impurities, in a simple step. Masks like this are a really effective and fast acting way to begin the transformation process.
Less is definitely more when it comes to makeup. For that springtime transition, put down the brown palettes and say hello to pink flirty colours. Aim for lightweight formulas that add a blush of colour to the face. The ILLAMASQUA BEYOND POWDER is great for this, it’s a long-wearing, lightweight highlighter perfect for the cheekbones and eyes, or use sparingly all over to achieve a bronzed skin effect.
Goodbye sallow – hello glow
To achieve a super indulgent extra radiance boost, the Pure Gold Collagen 10-day-programme is simply amazing. This beauty supplement aims to fight the first signs of ageing from within, by aiding in collagen production in the deepest layers of your skin. This leaves it looking firmer, plump, brighter and more youthful.
For a gradual boost, I’m a huge advocate of exfoliating and bath salts like the REN GUERANDE SALT EXFOLIATING BODY BALM are a relatively easy, low abrasive way to do this. They work by removing dead skin to increase cell turnover, which releases the inner glow.
For perfume, I suggest going a little more understated than normal this Spring. LANCÔME’S LA VIE EST BELLE EAU DE TOILETTE is an oldie but a goodie. It’s a beautiful and feminine choice and the Eau de toilette version is lighter on the pocket and fresher on the senses than some of the more overpowering heavier fragrances.
There’s something about the warmer weather that often makes us ladies want to switch up our hair. Experimenting with semi-permanent colour on extensions is my thing, so for those of you with colour treated hair – like me – you’ll know that maintenance is everything. KERACARES SHAMPOO and CONDITIONER FOR COLOUR TREATED HAIR are my recommendations. Their unique formula enhances and preserves the tone of colour-treated locks, to leave hair full of vitality and healthy shine.
So there you have it, my top to toe readiness suggestions for the upcoming season – watch out Spring we’re coming for you!
