The harsh winter months call for extra steps in your beauty routine with extra moisturizers, serums, masques, and more. With spring around the corner, this is the perfect time to go through your beauty cabinet and refresh your beauty routine! Keep reading for our top tips on how to give your daily beauty routine a quick makeover and ready for warmer months.
Survey Your Products
First things first - you’ve got to know what you’re working with. Go through your cabinet and make an inventory of products, tools, supplements, and ask yourself these questions.
- Is there anything expired?
- Do you have any duplicates?
- Are your tools like brushes, washcloths, curlers, in good condition?
- Is there anything you’re not using that could be donated?
Be honest with yourself and get rid of what you don’t need.
Simplify Your Routine and Store Winter Products
The building blocks of any skin care system are:
Anything beyond these 3 steps can enhance your routine but these three are the basics. If you’re new to a daily skin care routine or want to simplify your process, a simple 3 step kit with everything you need. Sounds good right? Our Daily Facial Care Package makes skincare easy! It includes Facial Cleanser, Facial Serum, and our Facial Moisturizer to keep you looking and feeling your best on a daily basis.
This is also a good time to put away your heavy moisturizers and bring your lightweight moisturizers and spring/summer makeup. You also need to make sure you have a good sunscreen to keep your skin protected from harmful UVA/UVB rays. SPF is one of those things that needs to be stocked in your beauty cabinet year round!
Warmer months also mean your toes are coming out of hiding and visits to the nail salon are going to be more regular. Make sure your nails are ready for their closeup with our unique nail care products.
If you’re starting from scratch, check out our Nail Treatment Package for everything you need to keep your nails looking fabulous. Each package includes Essential Cuticle Oil with Almond Oil Extract, Lanolin Rich Nail Conditioner (10 g tube), and Professional Nail Care File System.
Clean your workspace and tools
Keeping your home clean is always a good idea but doing a deep clean periodically is even better! Make this space comfortable, clean and welcoming and you’ll be more likely to spend time on your daily beauty routine and enjoy the process.
The Spruce has a great deep cleaning checklist for your bathroom but here are the highlights:
- Scrub the shower, tub and sinks, and toilet
- Dust Door Jambs, Window Ledges, and Baseboards
- Clean Ventilation Fan Cover and Light Fixtures
- Clean Out Drawers, Vanity Cabinets, and Medicine Storage
- Wash the Shower Curtain and Clean Window Treatments
Don’t forget to clean your tools like your makeup brushes, storage containers, mirrors, and makeup bags.
Organize Your Space
While you’re cleaning, think about the organization of this space as well. Are you happy with how you have the drawers of your vanity? If you use open shelving in your bathroom, think about any caddies you may need to better corral your products. We love the Home Edit storage products at The Container Store.
Happy spring cleaning!
