Spring Back

4 ways to recharge for spring

Spring is almost here and it’s an exciting time to revive ourselves after a long winter. Warmer weather, nature blooming and birds singing are motivation to refresh our mind, body and home. Here are 5 things to freshen up your life for the transition to spring:
 
Plan a Closet Clean-Out
We know that cleaning is usually not an exciting activity, but spring cleaning is a great way to toss what’s old to create a clean, peaceful environment. Start by going through your closet to pull out the items you never wear anymore. You can donate things that aren’t too worn or organize a clothing swap with your besties! Ask a group of stylish friends to bring unwanted clothes, shoes and accessories and plan a night where everyone comes over to refresh their look with something new (to them). As the saying goes, one woman’s junk is another woman’s treasure. You can donate whatever is left at the end of the night to charity.
 
Bring Your Skin Out of Hibernation
Spring is a crucial time for exfoliating your face and body. Removing dry, rough skin creates the perfect foundation for your spring skincare to penetrate and properly moisturize your skin. Start by cleansing your face thoroughly with a spin brush, like JAFRA’s Face and Body Cleansing System, which has two brush heads for your face and body. Next, use a gentle microdermabrasion cream, such as JAFRA’s Microdermabrasion Cream with Jojoba beads and Crushed Bamboo to give yourself a professional-style facial treatment at home. Finish with a moisturizing serum, try JAFRA’s Royal Jelly Vitamin Infusions Extra Hydration Serum with Vitamin E to glow right into the next season.
 
Update Your Look
For Spring 2018, the “no-makeup” look is still in style, but you can take it to the next level with ultra-dewy cheeks and eyes. First, use a lightweight foundation, like JAFRA’s Long Wear Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 20. It’s light, airy formula will give you a matte finish. Next, apply highlighter starting at your brow bones and going upward towards your temples. JAFRA White Soufflé Highlighter which will brighten and add moisture to your skin. For your eyes, you have 2 trendy choices for spring; a sweep of metallic bronze or glittering gold eyeshadow. Finish with a slightly winged cat-eye for understated drama. JAFRA’s Felt Tip Eyeliner is a quick-dryin, smudge-proof option.
 
Love Your Mani/Pedi
While your makeup maybe gorgeously understated, your manicure will not be. This spring, the manicure is all about brights and neons. First, pamper your hands so they’re soft and supple to show off spring’s in-your-face colors. Try JAFRA’s Hand Scrub with Jojoba Beads to gently lift dead skin while hydrating your hands with plant oils. Follow up with JAFRA’s Day Care for Hands Broad Spectrum SPF 15, to moisturize and protect your hands from the sun.

Now, the fun part. When it comes to polish this spring, anything goes! Try a bold metallic on your nails and balance it out with a gorgeous neutral on your toes. Cover all of your bases with JAFRA’s limited edition Sweet & Chic Topping Trio Nail Lacquer in Sweet
