Trick your skin into thinking it’s spring with these beauty hacks

The official day of Spring is merely a few weeks away. However, the recent temperatures show no end in sight, so let’s trick our skin into thinking its Spring so that we can be ready once it officially arrives.

Thick night cream or an overnight mask for am luminosity

The heaters are still blowing full blast, so your face is starving for moisture. Unless have  a humidifier 24/7 you need to give your skin a surge of hydration.  If a night cream seems to heavy for you try a sleeping cream.  I am currently using L’Oreal Collagen Moisture night cream, or Lumene Overnight cream on nights when I use acne an acne cleanser because sometimes it can be too drying.



Do an at home chemical peel

By performing an at home chemical peel it will exfoliate and get rid of dead skin. The buildup of “excess skin, toxins, pollutants, and even makeup can lead to dullness” and generally tired-looking skin.  It will give your skin a radiant glow with zero down time.  Choose a product with Glycolic acid.  I have been using Blue Mercury – Power Glow Peel $28.00 it has powerful natural antioxidants along with Glycolic acid, so your face looks well rested and dewy.


Power up with antioxidants

While antioxidant serums, like vitamin C topicals, aren’t immediate fixes, they can still aid in skin’s overall brilliance when used daily. Every day, free radicals form on the skin, which lead to premature aging, the breaking up of collagen, and age spots.  Try using a serum with Vitamin C to battle long term damage.  I am currently using Kiehls Daily Reviving Concentrate $47.00.


Just remember not to switch your fall/winter moisturizer just yet unless you live in a warm climate as it can still snow until the last week of March. 🙈
