DIY 3-Part Skincare Routine for Spring
This 3-part skincare routine starts with an easy homemade face serum that’s light enough to wear during the day as the weather heats up. Spring is the perfect time to clean up your skincare routine by paring things down and focusing on the basics.
1. Exfoliate with Clay, Oat + Almond Cleansing Grains
When the weather starts heating up, it's time to exfoliate. This helps us get rid of dead skin cells so we can have refreshed, rejuvenated skin.
As nature around us renews, we have the chance to do the same with our skincare.
- 1 part clay
- 1 part ground oats
- 1 part finely ground almonds
Grind the ingredients and combine them in a small jar. When you’re ready to use, scoop a bit out with a spoon and add a bit of water to make a paste. Massage the grains into the skin, avoiding the delicate area around your eyes, and then rinse with lukewarm water.
2. Tone with ACV
Super simple! just apple cider vinegar and water to remove any leftover cleanser, close the pores, and balance skin’s pH levels.
All you do is mix 4 parts water to 1 part apple cider vinegar and apply to clean skin with a cotton pad.
3. Moisturize with Homemade Face Serum
For daytime it’s nice to put on a light face serum that allows your make-up to apply smoothly.
This kills the bacteria that causes acne and lightens the appearance of age spots and blemishes. Of course, aloe also helps soothe skin and aids wound healing.
Mix the aloe Vera with a carrier oil, that works for your skin type, and add a few drops of nourishing skin essential oil for a healing and hydrating homemade face serum.
