Grow Your Glow: 5 Tips for Radiant Spring Skin
The spring season is officially in bloom! Is your skin ready to shine?
It’s the perfect time of year to cultivate good complexion care habits and enjoy glowing skin. So to help you look and feel your best, here are some quick and easy springtime tips:
Tip #1: Hydrate and replenish depleted skin
Coming out of the cold and dry winter months can leave most skin types lacking vital moisture. Just about everyone can benefit from extra hydration right about now. Optimal H2O levels are what will give you supple, luminous, lit from within the skin. Another way to ensure that your body is adequately hydrated is to add some electrolytes, which are what aid the body in balancing H2O levels. They can be particularly helpful when the body can become depleted of electrolytes, such as after a sweaty workout, or the morning after a few alcoholic beverages. For a quick fix, Liquid I.V.’s Hydration Multiplier is an electrolyte supplement that delivers enhanced hydration and can be easily mixed into your favorite beverage.
In addition to drinking extra water, you can provide thirsty skin with a much-needed boost of hydration in the form of an overnight serum. Night Life “Live” Probiotic + HA Serum by Shielded has achieved holy grail status as a great overnight option. This ultra-hydrating serum works to rejuvenate fatigued skin while you sleep to smooth, firm, and brightens your skin while also replenishing your skin with “live” bacteria, helping restore the balance within your microbiome.
Tip #2: Polish away layers of winter dullness
Another step that will help revitalize your skin after months of winter wear and tear is a hydrating facial. If you are in the Utah area check out Mavie MedSpa’s 50-minute Amarte Signature Facial. This facial is perfect for those that have an event coming up and want to look their best with extra hydration, brightness, and tightness of the skin on the face, neck, and hands.
A super popular facial (and for good reason!) is the HydraFacial. Using a unique, patented Vortex-Fusion delivery system to exfoliate, extract and hydrate skin, and, the spiral design delivers painless extractions. This facial is ideal for all skin types and textures, and perfect for achieving the perfect springtime glow!
Tip #3: Add in a good vitamin C serum
As ingredients for glow go, it doesn’t get much better than Vitamin C. Vitamin C is a powerhouse antioxidant that helps protect the skin against environmental stressors, boosts collagen synthesis, and promotes all over radiant skin health. If you don’t already include Vitamin C in your daily AM skincare ritual, consider starting this spring. Vital C Hydrating Anti-Aging Serum is another must-have formula from Image Skincare.
Tip #4: Supplement your way to springtime radiance
Another important thing to note about glowing skin is that it stems from overall internal wellness. In other words, for healthy skin, a healthy body in balance is a fundamental factor. For an easy way to incorporate essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients, Hush & Hush has created its own collection of nutraceutical daily supplements specifically for your skin. This time of year options like SkinCapsule Brighten+ to promote evenly toned skin and boost skin’s radiance and SkinCapsule Hydrate+ to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by intensely adding moisture to the skin is a great way to support your complexion from the inside out.
Tip #5: Don’t forget to protect your glow with SPF
For protecting your investment in your skin, sun protection is a critical part of skincare all year round. However, as spring brings longer daylight hours and warmer temperatures, it is more important than ever to practice good sunscreen habits. You’ll want to be sure to apply SPF to your whole face and body and reapply often, with products like Prevention+ Daily Ultimate Protection Moisturizer SPF 50 from Image Skincare.
Most people think of SPF only as a topical, queue Hush & Hush’s daily multivitamin TimeCapsule. With an amazing blend of powerful plant-based nutrients your body requires, a unique ingredient Polypodium leucotomos root, works as an internal sunscreen by blocking UV and harmful blue light damage, protecting your skin from the inside! TimeCapsule also acts as a beauty supplement by boosting collagen production with Marine Collagen (sourced from wild-caught Icelandic cod), adding moisture to the skin with Hyaluronic Acid, and reducing redness and breakouts with Zinc.
