Tips for a Healthy Glow this Spring
Everything you need to know for a healthy glow this Spring & Summer
As we all prepare for much toastier months ahead, our skin is right there with us. And while you may be more concerned with penciling in your next pool session, it’s crucial to remember that with a new season comes changes to your skin and a plethora of environmental factors that can affect your overall skin health. In other words, your winter skincare regime is not going to cut it. Lucky for you, we are here to help you make the necessary adjustments to your skincare to have a (somewhat) seamless transition as we approach the summer months.
Don’t skimp on sunscreen
Even though you should be applying SPF all year (please, just do it), you should take extra precaution as the temperature rises and powerful UV rays take over. If you plan on spending time in the sun, be sure to apply sunscreen of SPF 50 or higher to your face, body and lips, while re-applying every couple of hours (or even sooner if you are sweating or swimming). In the unfortunate event that you do get a sunburn, it may be time to curl up and watch some Netflix in the great indoors to prevent further damage – and pain. Sweet almond oil contained in the All-Natural, Certified Organic Face Oils - Ellie Bianca is a light and effective barrier against the sun and works to rejuvenate and hydrate the skin during and after sun exposure. All-Natural Naked Face Oil - Ellie Bianca is particularly good for application right after exposure to the harmful sun rays.
Dial back the intense skincare routine
Put down your 5-step nighttime madness and hear me out. I know it may seem unfathomable to abandon an extensive skincare routine, but I can assure you that you will not be doing your skin any good by following your winter practice and quite frankly, you’ll be wasting your money. Seeing as our skin produces more oil during the summer there is no need to pile on heavy cremes. Simplify your usual regime as the weather heats up and opt for a limited number of products. Citrus Verbena Skin Oil - Ellie Bianca is a great place to start if you’re looking for a 1-step all-natural solution all spring and summer long. The amazing oil is surely one to watch, its fresh scent is inviting and works wonders for the skin. It helps reduce inflammation, improve skin texture and maintain a balanced complexion.
Steer clear of heavy makeup
Walking around in the 30-degree heat with a full-coverage foundation on my face certainly does not sound like my idea of an enjoyable time. Rather than sweating it out underneath your foundation every day, go au naturel and let your skin breathe to avoid messy breakouts – with the exception of your chosen moisturizer and SPF of course.
Give the right fuel to your body.
We cannot emphasize enough on drinking enough water all year long. Hydration is key to that healthy, glowing skin, especially in spring and summers when the body loses moisture as temperatures soar. It is also important to incorporate more food categories that are high in antioxidants such as berries, nuts, artichokes, kales, beans, beets etc. By eating a wide variety of food, you can boost the antioxidants in your blood level and reap the many health benefits.

Transitioning into winter with your skincare routine
It’s Winter and everything around us is changing. This seasonal transition is the perfect time to not only switch up our habits and routines, but also our skin care routines. A summer to fall to winter skincare routine is a must in order to prepare your skin for the upcoming season. The transition from summer to fall then into winter means that we will be subjected to colder and drier weather, which can lead to dry skin. In addition, the lack of sunlight can lead to dull skin, which is why it’s necessary to take extra care of your skin during this time of year.
To combat this, here is a suggested natural skincare routine using Ellie Bianca products that will keep your skin healthy and glowing all season long.
