I have partnered with SocialStars and Aveeno® to share my experience using natural products that work great to give a gentle clean, for me, and for my family. #Aveeno
Do you know how happy I am that it’s finally spring? SO. HAPPY. Now that spring has officially sprung, it means we are *that* much closer to summer!
I am loving the flowers in bloom and the smell of spring in the air, even the birds and the bees buzzing don’t bother me. I love to be prepared for vacations and beach days (ahem, San Diego) in the sundress, sandals, hair and beauty department, especially my skin. Keeping the skin on my legs, arms, chest, tummy, back and feet moisturized is super important, these are the body parts that will be exposed at the beach and pool very soon! Spring is a great time to refresh, so I am happy to get started with a few new ways to lock that moisture in, every time.
The key to having soft, luxurious, spring fresh skin is to start NOW. Like, right now. No, like yesterday. The thing is, it takes time to get a new routine in place, and for your skin to adapt to it. You’ve got to keep your skin hydrated on a daily basis, and I have been doing so with Aveeno® Active Naturals® products. Using only the best elements of nature in their products, my family trusts the brand to moisturize and maintain our skin. Here are a few tips to spring fresh skin…
3 Tips To Spring Fresh Skin from Head to Toe
Your soap in the shower matters
Harsh soaps full of dyes and crap are terrible for your skin. I repeat – TERRIBLE. Smooth skin really starts in the shower, water tends to dry out skin, and you need to combat it! I use Aveeno® Daily Moisturizing Body Wash, a gentle formula that “combines ACTIVE NATURALS® Colloidal Oatmeal with a unique blend of natural oils and emollients to help replenish skin’s moisture for softer, smoother, healthier-looking skin.” Yep, stole that from their website, because it’s so important that you know what your products have in them! No dyes, hypoallergenic, and lightly fragranced, so it’s absolutely perfect for the whole family to use.
Use the appropriate lotion
After showering, a moisturizing lotion with the most natural ingredients is what you need to apply daily, from head to toe (a different facial skin care routine is necessary, though). When you’ve towel dried off, but are still a bit damp, be generous with the application of your favorite lotion. By favorite, I mean NEW favorite, because those smell-good lotions are not the best ones to use. Find a lotion that uses natural ingredients, and soothes the skin all day.
Consider natural additives
There are a few essential oils and natural additives that can be infused with your products. Some of my favorites are coconut oil, avocado oil, raw shea butter, and jojoba oil, add a little of your favorite to your lotion and spread it up and down your temple. Also, adding a few drops of lavender or tea tree essential oil to your Aveeno® Daily Moisture body wash gives it a calming smell and will be absorbed by the skin as moisturizing nourishment.
Make sure that your skin is spring fresh with these daily moisturizing tips, using Aveeno® Daily Moisturizing Body Wash will help your skin get to where it needs to be after this cold winter. I’m ready to show off these legs and get a little sunshine, enjoy spring!
