It’s Spring! Open up those windows and let in the sunshine and fresh air. This time of year calls for spring cleaning and decluttering as we welcome in a new season. While spring cleaning typically refers to cleaning out your home, we want to highlight a few other aspects of your life where you can apply this mindset to. Not only will you have a clean home, but you can also improve your mood and mentality with some of these spring cleaning tips and tricks. Check them out below!
Minimalize Your Skin Care Routine
Do you have an 11-step skincare routine that seems a bit excessive, but you kept all the products because you saw a celebrity’s complex morning skin routine? If you have unnecessary products that are rarely used and have no significant benefits for your skin, it may be time to get rid of them to focus on products that actually work. By having a simple routine, you can pinpoint what types of products work best for your skin needs. Just keep your essentials and supplement with other products accordingly.
A simple, yet effective routine that you can model after is the Woww Regimen. All you need is the 3-in-1 Skin Prep Cleanser, Slough & Buff Exfoliant, and 24/7 Bio Protect Moisturizer. One of the best parts about this routine is how you can combine the cleansing and exfoliating steps into one. By having the ability to mix the exfoliant into your cleanser, you have full control of how and when you exfoliate. You can get all three products for 25% off here.
Throw Away Expired Beauty Products & Tools
When’s the last time you washed your makeup brushes and sponges? Or thrown out a crusty old mascara or cracked eyeshadow palette? Take this time to go through your vanity, makeup bag, bathroom drawers, and purses to throw out expired makeup that can infect your eyes and severely irritate your skin. Alongside throwing out old makeup, wash your makeup brushes and sponges! Dirty brushes and sponges allow bacteria to grow and you don’t want to be spreading that all over your face.
Declutter Your Home & Closet
Next, your home is your sanctuary, so keep it clean and inviting! There’s nothing better than coming home to a fresh-made bed and clean space to relax and decompress. If there are things lying around you don’t need, go ahead and donate or sell them. Check out these seven tips for creating a stunning minimalistic look for your home.
While you’re decluttering your home, don’t forget about your closet. This is a great place to truly cut down the amount of stuff you have. How many times have you bought a shirt just because it was on sale and you thought it’d be cute for some hypothetical event? Donate your clothing and unused makeup to help women and families in need. Take a look at all the organizations that you can contribute to by donating, here!
Go through your fridge
Cleaning out your fridge is something that no one wants to do, but desperately needs to be done. We all have those salad dressings that have been in our fridge for too long! Toss out expired produce, proteins, and condiments and stock up on nutritious, healthy foods! Eating superfoods will not only boost your physical health, but they’ll also support glowing skin from within. Grab some of these foods the next time you’re at the store to help promote clear, beautiful skin.
Remove Negativity in Your Life
Take a look at your life and evaluate which areas are going well and which areas need improvement. This is a great time to check in on your New Year’s Resolutions and get back to them if they’ve been neglected. If you have bad habits you’d like to change such as biting your nails or staying up late, hold yourself accountable and make it happen!
If you have any toxic relationships that drain your energy and are emotionally exhausting, it’s important to closely examine why that is. Distance yourself from people who you feel are adding unnecessary stress and negativity to your mental health. After all, who said spring cleaning only applied to your home?
