6 Spring-time body and skin-care tips

by | Blog

Springtime…images of happy flowers, warm air and buzzing bees fill your mind. It’s also the time to clean out and refresh – even for our skin!  We’ve compiled 6 easy tips to spruce up your spring-time body and skin-care routine. 

Exfoliate

One of the easiest ways to glowing skin starts with exfoliating away the lingering layer of winter. Even though skin cells constantly regenerate, you will definitely help you skin get rid of dead cells by exfoliating regularly. The best way to exfoliate skin is to run a hot bath, and give yourself a full-body exfoliation using a strong but gentle scrub, Simply Bee’s Body Scrub. Scrub all over – knees, elbows, feet, hands and back.

Remember that most body scrubs are too rough to use on your face. Rather use our Honey Face Scrub which is a specific scrub to exfoliate your more delicate skin. Always follow with a body moisturizer like Simply Bee Body Butter or Body Balm and Daily Moisturiser for your face to nourish your fresh skin!

Hydrate

Drinking more water is at the root of every good diet, workout and skin care routine.  That’s because it really does wonders for your body! Your organs need hydration to function, and your skin is your body’s largest organ. The more water you drink, the easier it will be to keep your skin from getting dry and flaky.

Wear sunscreen

Sunscreen isn’t just for sunny days at the beach. Even overcast days can still send harmful UV rays down to attack your skin. So wear sunscreen, even on cloudy days, to protect your skin from sun damage. Invest in Simply Bee Sunscreen.

Eat fresh fruit and vegetables

Speaking of hydration, a great way to get more water into your day is by snacking on fresh fruit and veggies. Not only do they provide additional moisture – they’re also filled with vitamins and other nutrients. Great foods for healthy skin include lettuce, broccoli, grapefruit, carrots, apples, and watermelon. Studies have found that citrus fruits are especially helpful for skin health.

Use a lighter moisturiser

While winter had you slathering thick, heavy moisturizing products from head to toe it’s a good idea to use a lighter Daily Moisturiser for your skin.  For body we recommend the Hand and Body lotion in glass or plastic.

Workout

Exercise increases blood flow, which helps maintain healthy skin cells! Happy skin cells = happy skin! You don’t even have to hit the gym. If it’s nice outside, do 30 minutes of yoga on your lawn. Or, take advantage of the fresh spring weather and take a brisk walk outside.

Happy Spring-time!
