Spring is almost here!
A few weeks ago, we started to have double-digit temperatures! It was such a treat to be given a sneak peek into Spring. I celebrated by going for a long walk with my son in the baby carrier. Sadly, the high temps did not last and we’ve had more snow since then. In fact, as I write this, I’m looking out the window at a snow shower. Nevertheless, I know that Spring is close and it’s time to get ready for sunshine and outdoor fun!
Spring also means that my skin will have different needs. Here’s how I’m planning on taking care of my skin.
I just whipped up two small batches of Goat’s Milk Melt and Pour Soap. I made a few bars of soap using green clay and scented them with Patchouli. In the past, I’ve sometimes overdone it with the Patchouli scent. Fortunately, I’ve learned from that and these bars are nicely scented.
I also made some bars of soap with pink clay. I use these on my face. They are gentle and are able to clean my skin without removing all of the natural oils. I scented these bars with Grapefruit essential oil. I like to call these bars Pink Grapefruits!
I’ve been using the Emollient Wheatgerm cream this winter. It’s been great. Now that the weather is turning, I’ll be using face oils only. I love the Suti face oils. They have a delicious scent and are light on the skin. I also make my own face oils and have experimented with all kinds of oils. Once I finish the batch that I have in my cabinet, I’ll be making some more to try!
It’s also time to switch to a light lotion. I always need to help my skin with moisture. However, I can get away with a light lotion during the warmer months, rather than a thicker lotion or cream.
If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll already know that I’m a big fan of reverse hair washing. I just love the results and I continue to wash my hair this way. With the added humidity that comes with Spring, my hair can get a bit frizzy. I find that a weekly hair mask is just what it needs to stay under control. My favorite mask right now is plain coconut oil.
How do you pamper your skin during the spring months?
