I don’t know about you girls but when winter comes around I tend to slack a bit when it comes to my beauty routine. I’ve been wearing lots of cute hats, pants and flats so you can only imagine where I’ve been cutting corners, am I right? With spring just around the corner, I’ve begun tweaking my diet (hello bikini season!) and going over my beauty routine to see what needs to be improved. It got me thinking that many of you are probably going through the same and could benefit from some of the changes I’ve made.
First I needed to tackle the grey hairs that keep making an appearance in my close-up photographs. My dad had salt and pepper hair by his late teens and I surprisingly inherited this trait from him in my early twenties. Hair dye will always be a part of my life and finding the right one can be tricky. Since I only get grey hair on top, I use Clairol Nice ‘n Easy Root Touch-Up in Black. There is no point in dying my entire head of hair when only a handful of hair needs to go back to black.
The process takes 10 minutes and lasts up to three weeks!
Another hair woe is dandruff which that won’t let up until temperatures get a lot warmer. Those pesky white flakes really annoy me so I’ve been using Head & Shoulders new Damage Rescue Collection which nurtures the scalp and leaves hair up to 10X stronger in just four washes. The conditioner was specifically developed to help dry/damaged hair by retaining moisture and improving hair flexibility.
Speaking of moisture, the colder temperatures have not only reduced moisture in my scalp but also on my body. Olay’s Ultra Moisture Body Wash gently cleanses skin with their soap-free formula while the shea butter moisturizes even the driest skin for up to 24 hours. Did I mention it smells delicious too?!
Now to tackle the most embarrassing topic of them all, shaving. I haven’t worn a dress since November and I will admit to you all that I haven’t been shaving my legs all that regularly. EEK! I know, but don’t judge me! I like to tell myself that that extra bit of hair on my legs keeps me a little warmer. But with spring upon us, I won’t be able to separate from my Venus + Olay razor. I never need to purchase shaving cream as long as I have my favorite razor (Sugarberry is my favorite!). It also works great on your bikini line! BONUS!
What are some of your favorite products that will help you welcome the spring?
