We're officially two weeks away from daylight savings time and although we'll be losing one hour of sleep, I'm excited because daylight will be longer! With changing our clocks, we'll also be transitioning into Spring meaning nicer weather, warmer temperatures and more time outdoors to allow for social distancing activities, hopefully.
As the seasons change, it can have an effect on your skin, body, sleeping patterns and daily routines and all will vary from person to person. Below I've compiled a list of 3 things you can do to prepare for them.
1. During the winter and colder months, our skin tends to get dry and cracked which is why we exfoliate more in the winter. However, it's also important to exfoliate in the spring too! Adding exfoliation into your routine at least once a week will help your skin stay moisturized, hydrated, and glowing by shedding off built-up dead skin and dullness. The Madrona House of Apothecary Sugar Scrub is one of my personal favorites because it's gentle on the skin. Message us if you're interested in purchasing a jar!
2. With the arrival of spring, this means more outdoor markets and all the freshly grown fruits and vegetables with which it is accompanied. There have been studies proven that when a person consumes more fresh fruit and vegetables in their diet, it can produce a positive mental effect causing them to feel happier. This is the perfect reason to go out and support your local farmers market or even Pike Place Market!
3. Most of us have been indoors, not only because of the lockdown and lack of things open, but also because of the cold weather. Spring is the perfect excuse to get outside where you can easily practice social distancing and engage in more outdoor activities. Go for a walk or a run, join an outdoor bootcamp, or go hiking! It's been proven that having more fresh oxygen circulating throughout your body improves mental functioning, increase energy levels, and overall positive perception.
