With the new season in full bloom, have you switched up your routine yet? A new season isn’t just a fun excuse to go out and buy the latest releases from your favorite brands. It’s actually essential to tweak your routine to make sure your skin is getting everything it needs to deliver the best canvas for the rest of your beauty routine.
Routine starters are typically what you’ll find yourself switching out the most as the years go on. These are the products you’re using far before your first drop of makeup, and what will make all the difference in your end look. To make your routine more spring-friendly, check out these three affordable products from CVS that will keep your skin happy this season and make a great start to the rest of your regimen.
1. Simple Micellar Cleansing Water
This is a true favorite of mine— one of the best micellar waters at the drugstore. Plus, they just put a bigger bottle on the shelves that can support my addiction! This is a great gentle and rinse-free way to cleanse that I prefer for morning time. The triple purified water gets oil, dirt, and makeup residue off without drying out the skin. It’s also infused with vitamins B3 and C, designed for sensitive skin.
Since spring can be so fickle, and because I have combo skin, I can sometimes wake up with dry patches or slick with oil in my t-zone! The micellar water creates the perfect blank canvas for the rest of my morning skin care routine by instantly hydrating while whisking away impurities and unclogging pores.
2. St. Ives Exfoliate & Nourish Apricot Oil Scrub
If you need a little exfoliation after cleansing, this scrub is the way to go! It brings together the power of the original Apricot Scrub from St. Ives while adding the gentle nourishment of a cleansing oil. It’s made with 100% natural exfoliants and 100% pure grapeseed oil that gives you a very thorough scrub while moisturizing. You’re left with a natural glow, radiant as ever with a smooth base for your makeup. This scrub can be used 3-4 times a week, and won’t clog your pores. I find that when I exfoliate regularly, my makeup applies much smoother and stays on longer!
3. Caress Daily Silk Body Wash
Let’s not forget the rest of our skin below the neck. I’m so guilty of neglecting anything covered by leggings and sweaters during the cold months, so when it’s time to dress for the sun, it’s a shock! This body wash not only smells amazing with the white peach and silk blossom fragrance, but delivers silky-soft skin. I mean just look at it— the formula itself looks like liquid silk! A nice way to treat yo’self and your skin!
