Spring is a season of renewal and rebirth – wake up your skin after months of cold weather and let it blossom and shine with these three steps.
1. Scrub off dry skin.
Bring the glow back by removing scaly wintertime accumulation that creates unfortunate dry patches. St. Ives Purifying Sea Salt Exfoliating Body Wash offers a gentle exfoliation and adds the natural humectant glycerin to draw in moisture long after the bath. Similarly, refresh the face with St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub which has gentle exfoliants (corn kernel meal and walnut shell powder) to bring forth silky, new skin and rejuvenate your complexion.
2. Prep skin in the shower with moisturizers.
Get into a pre-spring routine by picking natural soothers like the St. Ives Oatmeal & Shea Butter Moisturizing Body Wash. These ingredients will gently remove dirt and leave radiance in its place. Prepare for hair removal by gently rubbing in a mild ingredient like the jojoba found in St. Ives Smoothing Apricot Exfoliating Body Wash several days before the treatment. This loosens and removes dead skin cells to make hair removal easier and safer.
3. Treat your skin that was hidden away… or exposed.
While knees were hidden under tights, heels trapped in boots, elbows tucked in sweaters and fingers in gloves, they were left rough and undernourished if you lapsed in wintertime lotion application. Get ready to show off with extra special treatment like St. Ives Timeless Skin Collagen Elastin Moisturizer. It offers proteins known to promote smoothness, and hydrates to also visibly improve skin’s appearance for those neglected areas that faced the elements.
