How to Lighten Up Your Beauty Routine

When the weather starts to warm up, many of us decide it’s time to lighten things up. And while we don’t get much of a Spring Season here in the gulf, there’s no reason why we can’t still do a little spring cleaning of our own. We usually have no problems letting go of old clothes or even home appliances, however, getting us to let go of our beauty products is a totally different story. We were a little worried that our beauty routines would suffer with fewer products. Thankfully, we found some amazing multi-tasking products that target multiple concerns and were able to keep everything in check. The only difference is that we now have much more space on our dressers! Here are some of the multi-tasking beauty superstars that we have switched over to:

Sachajuan Volume Powder – We live such busy lives that we barely have time to wash our hair. Using a good dry shampoo allows us to have that freshly-washed feeling in just a couple of seconds. This volume powder will not only absorb oil and freshen up our locks, it also adds tons of volume, so we can seriously cut down on washing and styling time.

Philip B Nordic Wood Hair & Body Shampoo – It’s almost like Philip B was reading our minds when he created this shampoo that is gentle enough for our hair and our bodies. With refreshingly cool and soothing extracts, this has saved us space in our showers and also in our suitcases.

Jane Iredale Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream – Save space in your makeup bag with this multi-tasking BB Cream. This full coverage mineral BB Cream will soothe and hydrate your skin while simultaneously protecting it from the sun and free radicals. You can also use a small brush to apply some of the cream under your eyes, eliminating the need for a separate concealer.

Neostrata Renewal Cream – Bust any signs of sun damage with this intense renewal cream. It will visibly reduce wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, large pores, and any other evidence of sun damage. Plus, you can use this on your face, neck, and hands. No one will ever be able to guess your real age!

Dr Dennis Gross Extra Strength Alpha Beta Peel – Peels are a great way to quickly improve your skin, and these pre-soaked pads make it even easier. This two-step peel will lighten pigmentation, brighten, firm, reduce pore size, re-texturize and smooth out wrinkles in mere minutes.
