You just need to know the safest ways to do it without harming your skin or using damaging ingredients. That’s why we created this guide to spring skin rejuvenation.

Spring Cleaning Your Skin: Exfoliation and Detoxifying Masks


To really cleanse your skin, you need to focus on removing dead skin cells, encouraging new skin growth, and clearing your pores of toxins. Here are two tried-and-true skincare techniques that will clean and clear up your skin on the pore level.


  • Exfoliation


Exfoliation is the process of using a sugar scrub or a tool (like a brush or sponge) to gently scrape dead skin cells off the outermost layer of your epidermis. This process not only helps improve the texture of your skin, but it encourages healthy skin turnover for a fresher, more youthful look.


When exfoliating, just be careful not to scrub too hard, or you may cause damage and redness in your skin!


  • Detoxifying Masks


Detoxifying masks with ingredients like charcoal and clay help draw dirt, grime, and other impurities out of your pores. The result is smoother, clearer skin.

Natural Ingredients That Will Give Your Skin a Healthy Spring Glow


With clean skin as your base, the next step is to brighten and hydrate your skin to achieve that all-natural, sun kissed glow! Try adding these naturally brightening ingredients to your skincare routine this spring.


  • Vitamin C


Use topical vitamin C to revitalize your complexion, reduce hyperpigmentation and signs of aging, and protect it from the sun’s UV rays.


  • Antioxidants


Look for a skincare serum filled with powerful antioxidants like vitamin E, carotenoids, and zinc. These ingredients help protect your skin on a cellular level, reduce the effects of aging, and improve hydration to produce a healthy glow.

Tips for “No Makeup” Makeup This Spring


With your skin glowing and healthy, the last thing you may want to do is cover it up with a lot of makeup. Instead, why not hop on the “no makeup” makeup trend and only use makeup sparingly to emphasize your natural features?


Below are our tips for going (almost) au natural with makeup this spring.


  • Only apply concealer on your dark under eyes and on top of the most prominent blemishes, like pimples or rosacea. Use your fingers to blend the product out into your skin.
  • For a bit more coverage, apply a light foundation that matches your skin tone. Don’t go too heavy with it, though! The goal is to still be able to see your real skin.
  • When using eye liner, eye shadow, mascara, blush, and lipstick, choose soft neutral shades like brown and nude instead of harsh blacks and bright colors.
