When the seasons change, your beauty routine needs to get change, too! Here are some of my essential Winter-to-Spring beauty swaps!
WINTER TO SPRING SWAP 1: GO FOR A GLOSSY LIPCOLOR
Ditch moody, matte lipsticks for a lighter, more airy gloss.
Make Up For Ever Artist Acrylip
Available in 10 bright and bold shades, this gloss is inspired by bold, high-pigment acrylic paints. The formula isn’t sticky or dying and it feels like a gloss but stays on like a lipstick. The brush has an innovative cushion applicator that allows for easy application.
WINTER TO SPRING SWAP: REPLACE YOUR MOISTURIZER
Switch from a thick, creamy moisturizer to a something lighter, like a hydrating serum.
ELEMIS Hydra-Boost Serum
This is a super light light serum that moisturizes all day and is clinically proven to increase hydration by 64%. It contains hyaluronic acid and other active ingredients and makes skin feel plump and soft. Plus, it smells amazing, featuring a mix of bergamot, sweet orange, and mandarin.
WINTER TO SPRING SWAP: FIND A FLAKE-FIGHTING SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER
The up and down weather may be playing a number on your scalp and causing it to itch or flake. Use this in-between time to invest in a good dandruff-fighting shampoo and conditioner.
Dove DermaCare Scalp Shampoos and Conditioners
This new line from Dove helps keep hair flake-free. It features a blend of oils, so women can treat scalp issues without compromising the healthy look of their hair. It comes in three varities
WINTER TO SPRING SWAP: DITCH YOUR HEATING TOOL
Embrace your hair’s natural wave or curl by air drying it and using a frizz-fighting product to enhance its texture

WINTER TO SPRING SWAP: PREP YOUR LEGS FOR THEIR BIG DEBUT
Use a self-tanner to help give your pasty arms and legs some color.

Chances are your legs are a little pale this time of year. This is a fool-proof and convenient way to get a perfect golden glow just in time for summer.
The spray has a 360 degree nozzle and you can customizable your color without any of the gross smell of other self-tanners. Leave the spray on for just 1 hour for a light tan, 2 hours for a medium tans, 3 hours to achieve a dark tan. Then rinse off and within 8 hours you’re golden.
WINTER TO SPRING SWAP: PROTECT YOUR SKIN FROM THE SUN
Even though it’s not beach season yet, it’s important to wear face sunscreen every day and body sunscreen if you’re going to be outdoors for an extended period of time.
