With the arrival of spring comes new challenges for your beauty regimen. The Thread is bringing you the best products, tips, and tricks to shine all season long!
Problem: Dull complexion.
Solution: Exfoliation! The combination of indoor heat and bitter winter winds may have left your skin feeling dry and flaky. Whip it back into shape for spring by exfoliating two to three times a week to slough off dead skin cells. For a quick, DIY skin scrub, combine one tablespoon of ground coffee with one teaspoon of sweet almond oil to form a paste. Your skin will be springing back to life in no time!
Problem: Shiny skin.
Solution: Moisturize! This for the other end of the skin spectrum. We know it sounds counterintuitive, but the best way to fight shine and ensure your makeup stays put is by keeping your skin hydrated. Olay's Professional Pro-X Clear UV moisturizer is an Allure Best of Beauty Award winner, and it's great at quenching thirsty skin without exacerbating oil-prone skin. Using a primer on your eyelids will keep mascara from running.
Solution: Condition! Fight humidity with Aussie's Moist 3 Minute Miracle condition. It's a deep conditioning treatment (and an Allure 2011 Best of Beauty Award winner) that defines frizz-prone waves while providing a silky feel.
Solution: Get serious! Secret's Clinical Strength Antiperspirant Deodorant prevents those dreaded stains and ensures you never need to sweat the sweat.
Problem: You gave up on shaving during a long, cold winter.
Solution: Get a clean, close shave! The Gillette Venus Embrace Razor, another Allure Best of Beauty Award winner, will get your legs ready for that public reveal. Five, curve-hugging blades get virtually every hair--making sure you're 100% ready for spring!
