With the looming changing of the weather, especially with the few days here and there that remind me that spring is, in fact, real, I have been thinking about how to change my routine to prepare for the new season.
Firstly, I’ve decided to stop doing the typical “lazy girl” routine. If you’re guilty of simply removing your makeup, either with cleansing wipes or a cleansing water like I have here. Make sure that isn’t your last step! Taking your makeup off is great, but you need to either replace that step or follow it up with an actual face cleanser or scrub to finish off the routine.
Next, give your face a break by replacing your heavy full-coverage foundation with a lightweight tinted moisturizer or BB cream. This means that in the morning, you can skip your moisturizer step and hit two birds with one stone. You won’t get full coverage, but concealer and some powder will fix that right up, while still giving your skin some extra breathability.
Lastly, and probably most importantly, try to reduce and replace your soda intake with extra water! Transitioning from winter to spring is hard on your skin, so the extra water in your system will help to hydrate your face, just like the rest of your body. If you experience breakouts, the replacement of soda will also help you out there, because all of the chemicals and sugars in sodas wreak absolute havoc on your skin.
Happy spring to all of my Stinger Style readers!
