The days are getting longer and I can’t believe May is right around the corner! I personally also feel like I come out of a hibernation of sorts and have been changing up my routines the past few weeks now that spring is here. There are times when I feel like I get stuck in a funk so the changing of the seasons is always my reminder to get out of my comfort zone at times, try something new, and take a few chances on ideas that I may have put off before.
I’m excited to share three super easy ways that you can do a little spring refresh as well — you might just be amazed at how refreshing it feels to switch it up!
Detox With Your Oral Care Regimen
Oral care is also hugely important to me and something I realized when I was pregnant that can snowball into other health issues. Last year around this time, I switched up my toothpaste to start using Crest Gum Detoxify and it’s been a game changer for me. Not only does it get my teeth clean, but it’s designed with a cooling Activated Foam that actually penetrates below the gum line!
Several years ago I was actually on a gum treatment plan with my dentist as I had some early signs of gingivitis (my teeth were really sensitive as a result and I didn’t realize it was because of this!). Thankfully, now that I’ve been using the Crest Gum Detoxify toothpaste regularly, even my dental hygienist has commented on how far I’ve come when it comes to my gum health. Studies have even shown that 99% of gingivitis patients have shown reduced gum bleeding and inflammation in 8 weeks after using Crest Gum Detoxify!!
If you haven’t given Crest Gum Detoxify toothpaste a try yet, now is the time! Take advantage of the transition of seasons to switch up your oral care routine and take care of your gums with Crest Gum Detoxify. I pick up my Crest Gum Detoxify at Walmart (also available at Walmart.com), and my personal favorite when it comes to flavor is the Deep Clean.
Add Color To Your Wardrobe
Somehow I find that I seem to gravitate towards neutrals in my wardrobe at the beginning of the year but once May comes around, I’m usually itching for some bright pops of color! It couldn’t be more appropriate that Cinco de Mayo kicks off at the start of the month and it’s a great time to add some fun colors such as coral, yellow, and even teal to get into the spirit! There’s just something about a cheery outfit that perks up your mood, so give it a try and pick up a few bright-colored pieces today!
Make SPF A Priority
I always switch out my skincare products as the seasons change. Now that the days are getting longer and we’re just spending more time outdoors, I switch to products that incorporate more SPF to hopefully prevent the skin damage caused by the sun. Personally, I look for skincare that does double duty — e.g. combining lotion with a sunblock — so I get the best of both worlds! I can be particular when it comes to finding products that aren’t greasy / actually work, and Dermalogica has always been a favorite of mine. Their Prisma Protect is specifically light-activated to actually boost the skin’s natural luminosity while also packed with hydration to help maintain even skin tone. I use this one every day before I head out!
