How to Keep Your Skin Glowing in the Spring

Miriam Benzari

With the change of seasons from winter to spring, our skin is exposed less to cold, dry air and more to higher moisture levels in the air. -Blair Murphy-Rose, MD.  For the fall season, we gave you tips on how to keep your skin fresh and glowing during the colder weather. Now, here are some tips on how to keep that skin fresh and glowing as the warmer weather approaches us.

You may have a favorite skin care routine or even your favorite products that seem to keep your skin glowing — if you’ve ever read the ingredients in some of those products, they are not the best for your skin and can give you skin that dry and dull look. The skin is the largest organ in the body in both weight and surface area. Your skin has two layers, the dermis and the epidermis. The dermis provides support and structure to the skin. The epidermis functions to protect the body (acts as a protective shield). To give you the best springtime tips, we spoke to two of the best natural beauty brands that will have your skin beaming! 

1. Tasneem Beauty Boutique:  Specializing in hand-crafted, all-natural body care products such as body scrubs, soaps and oils.  Natural items that you can purchase from Tasneem Beauty Boutique are… 

Turmeric Products:

All turmeric products are a top seller during the spring. Turmeric helps treat dark spots and hyperpigmentation on the body. When purchasing Tasneem turmeric products, you have the option of Turmeric Soap which is the best option as it is much gentler on the face. During the spring, Tasneem Beauty Boutique notices that most of their customers focus on healing their skin from any damage that may have been caused by dry skin and cold weather such as dark spots, dull skin and eczema scars.
"What are the best natural ingredients for customers to keep in their spring beauty treatments?"

1. Shea butter & coconut oil: Exfoliates and hydrates the skin (keeps your skin smooth like butter). 

2. Mango butter: Contains vitamin A and stimulates the skin’s natural renewal process. 

3. Kokum butter: Highly moisturizing Kokum butter helps heal dry and cracked skin. Kokum butter is rich in essential fatty acids which helps softens the skin and promotes elasticity. 

4. Jojoba oil: The main benefits of Jojoba oil are that it hydrates the skin, balances natural oil production and delivers antioxidant protection. 

5. Grape seed oil: Moisturizes dull, dehydrated skin, evens out skin tone and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

When shopping Tasneem Beauty Boutique make sue to purchase their whipped soaps, turmeric scrubs, body butters and oils. 

2. Eves Bees: If you read our fall skin care tips, you know all about Eves Bees and you’ve probably already shopped with them and are using all their handmade natural products. We had to get Eves Bees input on keeping your skin springtime ready! 

Eves Bees recommends using all their skincare products throughout the whole year but emphasizes using hydration and water-based products in the spring. Our skin typically sweats in the spring because of the heat and humidity but still lacks hydration. Using products with water, hyaluronic acid, honey, vitamin C, kojic acid and turmeric help with hydration and lightening marks.

"What are the best skin care products from Eves Bees?"

1. Balance Jelly Cleanser with Turmeric and Kojic Acid, made to target dark marks, acne and hyperpigmentation. 

2. Refresh herbal healing oil or blemish butter: will seal in all of your skin’s moisture while helping minimize acne and dark marks. 

3. Papaya enzyme mask to target dark marks, acne and hyperpigmentation. 

"What steps can our readers take to keep their skin ready for warmer weather?" 

1. Use water-based products to help hydrate your skin like Eves Bees Rejuv Hydrating cleanser to break down all the oil, dirt, sebum and other bacteria on your face. 

2. STAY HYDRATED: Increase water intake. Drink at least eight cups of water a day. Water will flush the toxins out of your body and help you achieve healthy, glowing skin.

3. EAT HEALTHY: Eating healthy is also very essential to your skin, as your skin is a direct reflection of what you put into your body. If you want clean skin you have to eat clean.

Natural products work best on your skin as they keep you skin nice and smooth. Just think when buying your favorite beauty products next time: would you put any of those ingredients in your body, let alone on your skin?
