It’s finally spring! No more hibernating under the covers, waiting for the world to warm up. No more dreary afternoons where the sun sets far too early. When spring comes there’s a certain increase in happiness. To help you transition from winter to spring, we’ve put together a list of aspects to consider. You want your body in tip-top shape to enjoy this beautiful season.
Even if you just have a low SPF sunscreen, at around 15, it will really help prevent skin damage. After a season of cloud and weak sunlight, it can take a while to get back into the sunscreen regime. But now that it’s spring, be sure to start protecting your skin now.
A nice alternative to sunscreen is lotion that has an SPF element included in it. This way you can moisturize and protect your skin at the same time. Just be aware that the SPF element will time out. If you’re using face lotion, be sure to apply before you leave the house. And, if you will be out in the sun for more than a few hours, you will need to reapply. Typically, sunscreen needs to be reapplied every two hours, and the same will be with your face lotion.
Hopefully, you’ve been moisturizing during winter. With its cold temperatures and dry air, your skin will need an extra layer of protection. You might be thinking you can finally ditch the moisturizer, but alas, you will still need as you transition from winter to spring. Blustery days can wreak havoc on skin. You’ll also want to keep the lip balm out as your lips need to be protected for all seasons.
It can be a bit comforting knowing that in the winter months you can forgo the rigors of regular shaving or waxing. But with spring comes warmer weather and a different wardrobe. Start with underarm and leg hair and as the weather warms up you can start thinking about your bikini area more. The nice thing about spring is that it’s usually a gradual warm up, so you don’t have to ditch the winter coat all at once.
Spring is beautiful. With new buds on the trees and flowers poking up there’s a lot to celebrate. Unfortunately, these wondrous sights often bring the dreaded allergies. Suddenly your eyes are itchy and you can’t stop sneezing. You can take an over the counter medication but it’s really best to see your doctor. Have an allergy test performed so you know just what is causing your watery eyes. Knowing what you are allergic to can help you prevent some of the symptoms from forming. It’s always best to talk with a doctor before you take any medication, even one that doesn’t require a prescription.
