As a skincare professional and lover, I know how important it is to care for my skin and body this time of year. In this post, I'll share my tips and tricks for achieving a springtime glow that will also turn heads for you. We don't gatekeep around these parts!
Here are some top skincare tips for Spring:
Protect Your Skin from the Sun
- As the weather gets warmer, protecting your skin from harmful UV rays is vital. Wear sunscreen with at least SPF 30 daily, even on cloudy days. You should also wear protective clothing and accessories like hats and sunglasses to shield your skin from the sun.
- Exfoliating your skin can help remove dead skin cells and unclog pores, which can help prevent breakouts and improve skin texture. However, be careful not to over-exfoliate, as this can damage your skin. Aim to exfoliate once or twice a week using a gentle scrub or chemical exfoliant.
- Hydrating your skin is essential for maintaining a healthy, glowing complexion. Use a moisturizer appropriate for your skin type and apply it regularly to keep your skin hydrated and supple. You can also use a hydrating serum or facial oil to boost your skin's hydration levels.
- Eating a healthy diet can positively impact your skin's health. Make sure to include plenty of fruits and vegetables in your diet, as these are rich in vitamins and antioxidants that can help protect your skin from damage. It would help to drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out.
- Cleansing your skin is essential for removing dirt, oil, and makeup that can clog your pores and contribute to breakouts. Use a gentle cleanser daily to keep your skin clean and healthy.
- Consistency is critical when it comes to skincare. Make sure to follow your skincare routine daily, even when busy or tired. Your skin will thank you for it.
- Drinking plenty of water is essential for keeping your skin hydrated, but it's not the only way. You can also use a hydrating serum or moisturizer to keep your skin plump and healthy. Look for products that contain hyaluronic acid, glycerin, or aloe vera, which are all great ingredients for hydrating your skin.
Switch Up Your Routine
Believe it or not, what you eat can significantly impact the health and appearance of your skin. During the springtime, I love incorporating fresh fruits and vegetables, such as strawberries, cucumbers, and leafy greens. These foods are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that nourish the skin and promote a healthy glow. I also stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and herbal tea throughout the day.
Eating a nutrient-rich diet can help keep our skin looking healthy and radiant, especially during this transition period. Here are some foods to eat for skin care in Spring:
- Berries such as strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries are rich in antioxidants, which can help protect the skin from free radical damage. They're also high in vitamin C, which can help boost collagen production and improve skin elasticity.
- Leafy greens such as spinach, kale, and arugula are packed with vitamins and minerals essential for skin health. They're rich in vitamin A, which can help improve skin texture, and vitamin K, which can help reduce inflammation and dark circles.
- Citrus fruits such as oranges, lemons, and grapefruits are high in vitamin C, essential for collagen production and skin brightening. They're also rich in flavonoids, which can help protect the skin from UV damage.
- Avocado is an excellent source of healthy fats essential for maintaining healthy skin. It's also rich in vitamin E, which can help protect the skin from free radical damage and improve skin elasticity.
- Carrots are rich in beta-carotene, which can help improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They're also high in vitamin A, which can help regulate oil production and reduce the risk of acne.
- Green tea is rich in antioxidants, which can help protect the skin from free radical damage. It's also high in polyphenols, which can help reduce inflammation and improve skin elasticity.
Incorporating these foods into your diet can help support your skin's health and give you a radiant glow. But, as always, consult a healthcare professional with concerns about your diet or skin health.

Last but not least, taking care of your body and skin is essential. This means getting enough sleep, staying hydrated, and treating yourself to relaxing baths and massages when you can. I also love using body scrubs and lotions that contain nourishing ingredients like mango butter and jojoba oil to keep my skin soft and supple.
Spring is the perfect time to refresh your skincare routine and embrace a healthy, radiant complexion. By incorporating hydrating ingredients, face oil, and regular exercise into your routine, you can achieve a beautiful, glowing complexion that will turn heads all season long.

This is much Information to help you level up that gorgeous skin of yours. I have so much more to throw at you, so get ready! I can't wait to hear all about your new and improved routines. For those of you that need a little assistance, I got you! Here is a skincare routine to help you start your skincare journey. You will be customizing and giving out advice in no time!
Step 1: Cleanse The first step in any skincare routine is cleansing. During the springtime, I recommend using a gentle cleanser that will effectively remove dirt and impurities without stripping the skin of its natural oils. Look for a cleaner with hydrating ingredients like aloe vera or hyaluronic acid to keep your skin fresh and moisturized.
Step 2: Exfoliation is crucial in achieving a bright, even complexion. I recommend exfoliating 2-3 times a week using a chemical exfoliant. This will help remove dead skin cells and promote cell turnover, leaving your skin fresh and renewed. However, be careful not to over-exfoliate, as this can lead to irritation and sensitivity.
Step 3: Tone After cleansing and exfoliating, apply a toner to balance your skin's pH and help it better absorb your skincare products. Look for a toner with ingredients like rice water, sake essence, rosewater, or aloe vera.
Step 4: Serum Next, apply a serum to address skin concerns like fine lines, dark spots, or acne. Look for a serum with vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, or niacinamide.
Step 5: Moisturize. Apply a moisturizer to hydrate your skin and lock in the serum. Choose a moisturizer that suits your skin type, whether oily, dry, or combination. Look for moisturizers with ingredients like ceramides, shea butter, or glycerin.
Step 6: Face Oil Once a day, apply a face oil to nourish your skin and lock in moisture. Face oils are especially beneficial for those with dry or mature skin. Look for face oils with ingredients like argan oil, rosehip oil, or jojoba oil. Always use Goddes Elixir.
Step 7: Sunscreen Finally, apply sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 and reapply every two hours if you spend time outdoors.
Step 8: Acid Peel Every two weeks, incorporate a skin-cycling acid peel into your routine to promote cell turnover and improve skin texture. Look for a peel with glycolic, salicylic, or lactic acid. Apply the peel to clean, dry skin and leave it on for the recommended time before rinsing with water.
That's it! Follow this skincare routine consistently, and you should start to see improvements in your skin's overall health and appearance. Always patch-test new products and consult with a licensed esthetician or dermatologist if you have any concerns.
