It is now April, and it means there are no excuses left not to get our skin, body and mind summer-ready. Here are 5 steps to our spring-transformation inside & outside.
Start with the after-winter cleanse
The easiest way is to start your mornings with a cup of warm water with lemon and ginger to help your body wake up and boost your immune system. You will feel lighter and more energized in just a few days of incorporating this trick into your morning routine.
Do not forget about hydration
This is a rule for the whole year but it is even more essential in spring. Drink as much water as you can every day. Studies show that pure clean water has a magnificent effect on our skin. In just a month you will notice your skin is brighter, blemishes less apparent and under-eye dark circles will no longer bother you. Nourishing your skin from outside is paramount, so add Swiss line Force Vitale Aqua-Vitale Serum 24 to your skincare routine, it contains hydration binders to secure the effect.
Add new supplements and good fats
Just like in winter, we need to keep our vitamin C levels high. Use Swiss line Water Shock Refreshing Foam Cleanser with vitamin C to give that essential boost to your skin. In addition, spring is also a great time to make sure you have a good intake of Omega-3. Omega-3 supplements do wonders for our health, helping prevent heart disease, getting us in shape quicker, plus they add that natural glow to our skin.
Spring is the time for awakening. New fresh fruits and vegetables are coming to the shops and we need to make sure we take the full advantage of them. Let’s leave that winter comfort food behind and eat fresh. April is particularly good for artichokes, asparagus, beets, beans and chicory. Try this simple salad: roughly chop chicory and peeled orange, add balsamic vinegar and a bit of honey. Voilà! Your delicious and healthy salad is ready.
Let’s admit it, we all get trapped in our winter routine sometimes – winters are cold, busy and we have no time to stop and take few deep breaths. Start your spring mornings with a few exercises, stretch your body and take 10 deep breaths. Enjoy finally feeling the sun on your skin and feel your whole body awakening. But don’t forget to protect your skin from UV exposure. My personal favorite is Swiss line Force Vitale CC Cream SPF 30 which gives perfect light coverage and protects the skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays. And I could not help but enjoy the fact that the tube is in this season’s most trendy colors – pale pink and gold – making it a must-have accessory for my beauty bag.
