Easy Ways To Spring Clean Your Beauty Routine

Spring is a great time to refresh your beauty routine and make some positive changes. We’ve put together some easy ways to revamp your beauty habits. 

Declutter and wash your tools

Start by going through your makeup, skincare products, and tools. First off – check the expiry dates on all products (facemasks and moisturisers can go out of date sooner than you may think!) Get rid of anything that is expired, broken, or that you simply don’t use anymore. This will help you create space for new products and make your routine more efficient. Don’t forget to clean your makeup brushes, sponges, and other beauty tools regularly too. Use a gentle cleanser or brush cleaner to remove dirt, oil, and bacteria buildup. Clean tools will help prevent breakouts and ensure your makeup applies smoothly.

Streamline your routine

Your skincare needs and concerns change as we age, and also with the season. Consider switching to lighter moisturisers and SPF products for the warmer weather. Simplify your beauty routine by focusing on the essentials. Choose multi-purpose products that can serve multiple functions, such as a tinted moisturiser with SPF or a lip and cheek stain. This will save you time and space in your makeup bag.

Switch to lighter formulas

Swap out heavy creams and foundations for lighter formulas that won’t clog your pores or feel heavy on your skin. Look for oil-free moisturizers, water-based foundations, and gel-based cleansers that are more suitable for warmer weather.

Protect your skin

With the sun becoming significantly stronger in the Middle Easter as the seasons change,  it’s essential to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Make sure to wear sunscreen every day and reapply it throughout the day as needed. You can also invest in protective clothing, hats, and sunglasses for added sun protection.
