7 Tips To Springtime Beauty For Ethnic Skin
It’s that time of the year when you’ve pulled off the heavy layers of clothing opting for lighter fabrics that show more skin. Just as you would transition your wardrobe from winter to spring and spring to summer, consider the needs of your skin.

Here Are 7 Tips To Springtime Beauty For Ethnic Skin

Go lighter. With humidity and heat rising, natural oil production in your skin rises as well. So you’ll want to adjust your skin care regimen for warmer temperatures. Moisturize your face and skin using lighter formulations and oils like jojoba. For your body, whipped cremes and lotions are also a good option.

Use A Sunscreen. With more sunny days, use sunscreen. Yes, you have more melanin but we still need protection from the UV rays. To turn your usual lotion into sunblock version, just add a few drops of essential oil like SPF-high carrot seed oil (SPF 40). Sunscreen can even be one of the ingredients in your foundation or as one step combined with your moisturizer. Don't forget to care for your lips by having protection in your lip balm too. You can even make your own.

Whipped Sunscreen Recipe

Get ¼ cup coconut oil, ¼ cup Shea butter, 1 teaspoon carrot seed oil, 2 tablespoons non-nano zinc oxide

Shea butter and coconut oil are melted over warm water. Add other ingredients (carrot seed oil and zinc oxide) and stir before cooling in the fridge for ½ hour until solid. Whip for a few minutes until light before transferring to a jar with a lid. Keep it in a cool place.

Spring Cleaning For Your Beauty Tools. Get rid of products and makeup more than 6 months old. Remember there will be a build-up of bacteria which leads to clogged pores and dull skin. Don't forget your makeup brushes and sponges, which should be washed with soap and water.

Wait there's more ...

Exfoliate. Get rid of the dead, flaky skin from winter once to twice per week. Be gentle though with the exfoliation. Sugar scrubs are gentle, natural and smell great. Add the sugar to a light carrier oil (sunflower and grape seed). Moisturize with body butter (cocoa or Shea) or oil to lock in moisture right after bathing. Don't forget to exfoliate the dead skin on your feet, so you'll be ready for the hottest line of sandals with warmer weather coming.

Add Moisturizing Ingredients In Your Bath.Carrier oils like sweet almond, avocado or olive are great choices. You can also add finely grind up raw oatmeal (naturally soothing and restores moisture) and add it to your warm bath water. Don't forget to lock in moisture as soon as you get out of the tub. Careful getting out, your tub could be slippery.

Use A Hydrating Face Masque. Keeping your skin type in mind, add extra hydration to your face masque recipes by including ingredients like avocado, extra-virgin olive oil, cocoa butter or simply one with yogurt and banana together.

Still Prepare For Cooler Days. Since Mother Nature changes seasons at the blink of an eye these days, keep your favorite body butters near for the driest parts like hands, feet, elbows, knees and neck. Don't forget to take purse-sized lotion and moisturizer with you.

Make those necessary adjustments in your skin care regimen to reflect the changes in your seasons as you move from cold to warm and warm to warmer. Your skin will thank you for it.

That's it for this week.
