22 Apr How To Spring Clean Your Self-Care Routine
Spring is in the air, which means it’s time to clean out the old and refresh with the new! Your home isn’t the only thing you should be spring cleaning this season, either. Now is the perfect time to clear out your vanity and give your self-care routine a much-needed upgrade. Not sure where to start? Below, we’re sharing our top five sustainable tips for spring cleaning your self-care routine.
1. Makeup-Free Week
Foundation, concealer, and all of the glamorous makeup products in between – while we love them, they can wreak havoc on our skin. The product buildup from daily use can seep into pores and cause unwanted blemishes or irritation. Give your skin a spring cleanse by ditching your everyday makeup for one week. This “makeup fast” will allow your skin some time to rest and reset while also saving you time each morning.
To take your skin rejuvenation week a step further, use the Lau Botanicals Awakening Cleansing Oil. Just a few drops of the all-natural serum will leave your skin looking bright and hydrated. This powerhouse product is especially beneficial for those with acne-prone skin.
2. Use Organic Products Only
What goes on your body is just as important as what goes in it. So opt for beauty products that are made with natural, organic ingredients. On Board Organics offers a wide array of skincare products that all contain only 10 ingredients or less. From body balm to facial toner and organic deodorant, On Board Organics is the ultimate addition to your spring self-care cleanse.
3. Create a Morning Routine
Self-care goes far beyond just your beauty routine. It’s about practicing daily habits that help you feel like your best, most confident self! One way to take that self-love up a notch is by creating a morning routine. Set your alarm 30 minutes to an hour earlier than usual. Fill this extra time with things that bring you joy, whether that’s journaling, reading a good book, or enjoying a fresh cup of coffee on the couch with no distractions. It’ll start each day on the right foot and ensure that you’re giving yourself the alone time you deserve!
4. Light Fresh Candles
Nothing says self-care like taking a hot bath, pouring a glass (or two) of wine, and lighting fresh candles. So treat yourself to a few new candles from Les Ruches. Les Ruches’ collection of candles are made with organic beeswax, organic coconut oil, and exotic essential oils. They will fill your home with deliciously soothing scents that leave you feeling zen in no time.
Follow your relaxing, candle-lit bath by applying nourishing body butter to your skin. It’s the cherry on top of your self-care routine. We love the Sud Source Body Butter, which is made with pure plant oils, organic plant, flower, and root extracts. Both you and your skin will feel oh, so good at the end of the day.
5. Spend More Time Outside
There’s no better time than spring to get outside and enjoy the outdoors. Spending at least a few hours in nature each week is sure to take your self-care routine to the next level. Take your workout outside for a hike, go for a walk on your lunch break, or plan a weekend camping trip. The beauty of the outdoors will leave you feeling calm and mentally cleansed.
