Wearing the latest makeup trend is every beauty guru’s precedence.  However what lies underneath also is extremely important.

Tips for Spring Skin Care

Here are a three trouble-free skincare tips to ensure your Spring glam is flower-filled:

  1. Exfoliate – If you haven’t scrubbed that lifeless skin off your face all winter, it’s certainly time to begin. If your skin is normal to combination, you should exfoliate two to three times a week.  On the other hand, if your skin is more on the dry end, one to two times a week is ideal.
  2. Lighten UP! – The rich hydrating moisturizing cream that you used in the winter may be a little too heavy for spring.  Switch over to a lighter, oil-free lotion as a replacement.  You can never go wrong with a serum.
  3. Protect Your Skin – Unprotected sun exposure is awfully treacherous.  The sun doesn’t discriminate.  It does not matter your age, gender, nor race: the rays will ATTACK!  In order to prevent sunburn, premature aging, wrinkling, and skin cancer, apply a SPF to your face every morning.

To begin transforming your look for the spring, check out an amazing collection of Vera Moore Cosmetics colors. For a peek at the collection, visit www.veramoorecosmetics.com.
