It’s hard to believe it, but it *is* technically spring right now, despite what Mother Nature has in store for us. Eventually, the sun will come back out in the Northeast, the temperatures will rise, and we’ll bust out all of our adorable sundresses.
Let’s face it: winter is rough on our skin. And it’s not the worst thing in the world. You’re hidden under layers of tights, coats, jackets, leggings, etc. However, now that sundress season is right around the corner, it’s time to make sure your Spring skincare is in check!
MY SPRING SKINCARE TIPS:
Do you remember your New Years Resolutions? Are you sticking to them? Earlier this year, I resolved to take better care of my body. Get more sleep, switch out coffee for tea as much as possible, focus on rehabbing my knee, and to take better care of my skin. I might not have stuck with every single resolution I made, but I have been crushing it in the Spring skincare department as of late: and it’s all thanks to Olay Cleansing Infusions.
How I Aced the Tilt Test
What on earth is a tilt test, you ask?
Think about your skin in the summer. It might be hot outside, but your skin is glowing, dewy, and you look like you have a natural highlight. Now, think about your skin in the winter and early spring. If you think you’ve still got a healthy glow sans the summer sun, try tilting your face or body a bit. If your skin can still naturally capture the light with a slight tilt, then you’ve passed the infamous Tilt Test.
After using the Olay Cleansing Infusions body wash and face cleanser for about a month, I crushed the tilt test, my friends. It’s snowing outside as I type this and I haven’t seen the sun for weeks on end, but my skin looks just as fresh and dewy if it were mid-August.
How to Achieve A Natural Glow
o sun, no problem: here’s how I made my skin glow in just a month. For my face, I started off with a pre-cleanse to get out all of the impurities in my skin. Then, I’d use the Olay Cleansing Infusions Hydrating Glow Facial Cleanser, which has incredible micropolishing technology. Afterward, I used my favorite toner and serum, my Olay Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye Gel and then moisturize with Olay Whips. For the body, I used the Olay Cleansing Infusions Hydrating Glow Body Wash daily and used my favorite body oil as soon as I came out of the shower to lock in the moisture from my body wash. Overall, I’m loving my results, and I’m so ready for sundress season to return!
