It might still be rain, sleet and snow outside your window, but spring is on its way. (Promise!) And that means it’s time to slough away the rough, dry, dull layers that winter wreaked on your skin and get ready for a bright new season. Here are four surefire ways to help prep and pamper yourself into smooth, clean and radiant skin from head to toe. (Yes, I’ve tried them all.)
Michael Todd Soniclear
We all love the glowing results that sonic cleansing gives us, but did you ever stop to think about the brushes? Even if you clean them regularly, these exfoliating tools can be a breeding ground for bacteria. (Ick!) But not with Soniclear by Michael Todd ($150), the first-ever sonic skin cleansing brush with built-in antimicrobial protection. This ensures your skin is truly clean and enables better absorption of skincare products. What’s more, the Soniclear includes face AND body brushes, so you can have that spring glow from head to toe!
We all know green juice is great for your skin, but it’s time for a little color change, don’t you think? Wtmrln Wtr is straight-up 100% cold-pressed (and 100% delicious) watermelon with no added water, sugar, anything! Full of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant health benefits, this refreshing red fruit is rich in skin-enhancing vitamins A and C, plus its high water content hydrates your body, resulting in healthier-looking, radiant skin. I’ll drink to that!
ALOHA Daily Good Greens
One of the best ways to improve your skin is from the inside out and ALOHA Daily Good Greens tiny powder packets are loaded with skin-saving superfoods. You may not have the time or the cash to hit up your favorite juicery every morning, but you can get a pack of ALOHA’s renowned “green juice on the go” at a fraction of the cost ($19 for a six pack or $45 for a 15 pack). Stir in water, sprinkle in breakfast or blend into a smoothie to hydrate, energize and detox. The pouches come in green, chocolate (my fave) and berry blends and I love that they are 100% vegan and free of gluten, artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners or additives.
ME! Bath Advanced Body Care
