Practicing self-love through the seasons
Just like your wardrobe, your beauty products deserve, better yet NEED, an overhaul when transitioning seasons. This is something to think about as spring rolls in with wet, sunny days to relieve us from the cold, dry winter months. What to do, you ask? milk + honey have all the need-to-know information on how to best handle everything from your hair to your nails this spring season.
First stop, hair.
Spring in Austin can be incredibly harsh on textured or dry hair. Strands will frizz up and become coarse in an effort to pull extra hydration from the humidity in the air. To fight frizz and keep your tendrils tame, Kate suggests a Keratin smoothing treatment.
“The nutrients and proteins will work to restore and seal your hair, giving it everything it needs to feel smooth, shiny and completely frizz free, which we know is nothing short of a miracle in our signature Texas humidity!”
Moving down the body, let’s discuss the skin.
As we all know, the most important thing that you can do for your body and your skin is to drink more water. “Not only will drinking plenty of water flush out the toxins in your body, but it will also help to re-energize your muscles,” says milk + honey massage therapist Flower.
To refresh your face, esthetician Heather encourages a HydraFacial to remove dirt, oil and debris trapped within our pores. “Once those impurities are removed, the treatment then infuses peptides, antioxidants, and other skin rejuvenating nutrients into your skin to make it plump, softer, and with a healthy, dewy glow.”
For full body rejuvenation, indulge in an at-home spa day with a sugar scrub. Buff away dull, dry winter skin to reveal healthier, glowing complexion. Marisela lives and breathes milk + honey’s Orange Blossom Seasonal Scrub. “What I really love most about our Orange Blossom scrub is its aroma,” Marisela says. “The blend of soft flowers and citrus instantly energizes you.”
As much fun as indulging in a spa day is, don’t forget to take care of your mental and emotional selves as well. Meditation, yoga or an intense workout-do what your body craves to find good vibes daily. Massage therapist, Rachel finds herself in her garden come spring time “When it starts to warm up, I love spending time outside in my garden. I find that planting herbs and being with nature helps me find peace and keeps me re-energized.”
