This is the time of year when you open all the windows to refresh your home, pick up a bouquet of tulips, and endeavor to do some spring cleaning. Among all the springtime transitions, don’t forget your skin. The forced air heating and cold weather has surely taken its toll on your delicate skin. It’s time for your spring skin routine guide.
Switch To A Lighter Moisturizer
If you have been using a heavy cream to moisture during the winter, it’s time to switch up and find a lighter type. Look for one with hyaluronic acid in it as it will brighten skin and improve texture. If you are always in a hurry, find one with sun protection, then you won’t have an additional step every day.
Ditto With Your Foundation
Search for a BB or CC foundation instead of a heavy foundation. A tinted moisturizer is a good choice too.
Exfoliate Once A Week
Avoid harsh exfoliators. Instead look for AHA based products for a gentle but effective way to freshen up your face and remove dead skin cells. Avoid anything with harsh microbeads.
Don’t Forget Your Feet
As you get back to more regular pedicures and pretty sandals, you probably notice your feet need some attention from the winter dryness. Get out the familiar Vaseline and smear it all over your feet. Then put on some light socks and sleep for a few nights that way, and let the Vaseline do its thing.
Spring Clean Your Everyday Makeup
Toss those out-of-date mascaras, lipstick, blush and foundations. They can harbor bacteria along with your makeup bag itself. Clean it out thoroughly or wash if it is cloth. And don’t forget your makeup brushes and sponges.

Update Your Diet
Eat more veggies and fruits as they come into season. Include more high quality protein and foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Ask NUWA WORLD what supplements would be good for you and your skin.
Yes, this is important for your skin, the largest organ in your body. Drink lots of water for smoother skin during the spring and summer months.
Try A Body Scrub
This is a great way to rejuvenate your whole body. Find an over-the-counter gentle body scrub and run a hot bath. Hit all areas of your body focusing on the extra rough spots like elbows, knees and feet. Remember not to use a body scrub on your face.
