4 Natural Spring Beauty Tips
Spring is a lovely time of year: fresh scents, more sunshine....and shorts weather.
Wait, shorts? Right - time to work on that dry winter skin. Here are 4 tips to get your skin in shape for spring and summer.
Coconut Oil Sugar Scrub
The first step to spring-ready skin is to literally shed you winter skin! This exfoliating scrub does a great job, plus it incorporates natural beauty superstar, coconut oil. Mix 3 tablespoons of virgin, unrefined coconut oil with ½ cup sugar. I use this evaporated cane juice organic sugar , In the shower, use your hands to scrub the mixture vigorously all over your body. Rinse off with warm water then towel dry. Your skin will feel silky smooth and hydrated, as some of the coconut oil will stay on your skin and act as an intensive moisturizer.
This is a great daily tip to carry with you from winter to spring. Purchase a special brush made for dry brushing, and gently run it over your entire body every morning. This will help remove dead skin cells, which contribute to dry, flaky skin. It will also give your body a chance to detox daily.
Nourishing Hair Mask
Your hair might just be the biggest victim of winter weather! It’s been exposed to harsh elements for months and is probably looking pretty dry and lifeless. To help it out, massage a few teaspoons of olive oil, combined with 2 or 3 drops of tea tree essential oil, into your scalp. Leave it in for 20 to 30 minutes, and then wash out using your regular shampoo followed by conditioner. Do this one or two times a week for healthy, shiny hair!
Nighttime Foot Mask
Don’t overlook your feet as you get your skin and body ready for spring. They are about to make their annual sandal debut after all! Try a thicker cream like our Barn Balm, or even plain old Vaseline, a couple times a week to soften the skin on my feet and moisturize them to prevent cracked heels. Just apply a thick layer to both feet, slip on some thick (and preferably very fuzzy) socks, and hit the sack. In the morning, your feet will feel brand new!
