Why You Should Embrace Spring Cleaning Your Beauty Routine

As the seasons change, so should your beauty routine. With spring in full swing, it's the perfect time to refresh and revitalize your skincare and makeup regimen. Here are some expert tips to help you spring clean your beauty routine and achieve a fresh, glowing look.

The Hows & Whys of Spring Cleaning Your Beauty Routine

1. Assess Your Current Products

Start by reevaluating your current skincare and makeup products through the prism of health, skin/eye concerns, ingredients and performance. Check the expiration dates and toss out anything that is past its prime. Also check ingredients for our Top 10 Nasties (to be avoided at all costs!).

2. Replace Products Regularly

Yes, makeup and skincare products do expire, making them a breeding ground for bacteria, especially those that come into contact with the skin or mucous membranes, like the eyes, increasing the risk of skin irritation, infections, or other adverse reactions. So it's important to regularly declutter your beauty stash. Fresh makeup products often perform better than older ones. They tend to have better color payoff, blendability, and longevity, providing more satisfying results when applied.

3. Brusha Brusha Brusha!

Regularly cleaning your makeup brushes and sponges is essential to prevent breakouts and ensure a flawless application. Use a gentle brush cleanser like ÈYES facial cleanser to prevent cross-contamination, remove built-up product, dirt, and bacteria from your tools. Aim to clean them at least once a week. NEVER use baby shampoo!

3. Sensitive Matters

Ingredients in makeup formulations can cause skin sensitivity or allergic reactions in some individuals. Replacing old makeup can help reduce the risk of exposure to potentially irritating or allergenic ingredients that may have degraded over time. Many sensitive skin issues may be addressed by introducing ÈYES Power Couple Skincare and Mascara Trio Set.

4. Lighten Your Load

With warmer weather on the horizon, it's time to swap out heavy creams and foundations for lighter formulas. Opt for oil-free moisturizers, gel-based cleansers, like ÈYES gentle gel cleanser, and tinted moisturizers with SPF to keep your skin hydrated and protected without feeling weighed down.

5. Hydrate from the Inside Out

Add products with hyaluronic acid to your routine to keep skin hydrated, improve texture, and give your complexion a healthy glow. All ÈYES skincare, including our wipes, include hyaluronic acid. Remember that beauty starts from within. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day and eating a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats. Proper hydration and nutrition can help improve your skin's overall health and appearance.

In summary, "Spring Cleaning Your Beauty Routine" is essential for maintaining both hygiene and product efficacy. By following these expert tips, you can spring clean your beauty routine and achieve a fresh, radiant look for the season ahead. Embrace the change in weather by updating your skincare and makeup products to suit the warmer months, and don't forget to prioritize sun protection and hydration for a healthy glow—Inside & Out!
