With the calendar official flipped to spring, it’s time to get your beauty routine in line. From new products to new habits, here are five easy ways to update your beauty routine for spring!
Throw out expired makeup
It can take me a long time to finish up a product, and I hate just throwing it away. However, old makeup can cause breakouts, and old mascara can even cause eye infections. (Need a new mascara? This is one of my faves!) Use this handy chart to know when to throw stuff away. Don’t know what to do with your old makeup? Here are five brands that reward you for recycling!
Opt for a lighter moisturizer
A heavy cream can be great during the cold, dry months of winter, but come spring, that heavy cream can feel suffocating. Recently, I swapped my winter moisturizer out for this one, and my skin is so happy that I did.
Clean your makeup brushes
As I type this, I have a bunch of dirty makeup brushes waiting to be washed. This has been on my to-do list for at least a month… Oops. Dirty brushes can mean more breakouts as well just not being as effective. Here’s how to clean your brushes. Also, there are a few other beauty tools you’ll want to clean, too. (And, can we just talk about how beautiful these unicorn makeup brushes are?)
Try a new gadget
I’ve long been curious about epilators, so when Lipton Publicity contacted me about trying the Emjoi® Epi Slim+ e18, I was excited to give it a try. The 18 tweezer discs looked a little intimidating, but the Emjoi epilator is easy to use. It’s pretty much just like tweezing, except that you are pulling several hairs out at one time. The size is perfect for travel, and since the epilator is battery operated, there’s no cord to get tangled in. At $34.95, the Emjoi® Epi Slim+ e18 is a beauty gadget that won’t break the bank.
Embrace dry brushing
From Goop to Birchbox, it seems like everyone is touting the benefits of dry brushing. I like to take a minute or two before my bath for dry brushing. With a $5 brush, you can give yourself a mini spa experience at home.
