Give your Beauty Routine a Spring Cleaning!

Now that Spring is officially under way I am doing my annual Spring cleaning. I go through my makeup collecting and toss any old products and add new colors and products to transition my look to Spring. Here are a few of my new favorite items that have me ready for Spring.

Skin:

A great cleanser its really gentle and has no chemicals to irritate my sensitive skin. I love the soft scent and how thoroughly it cleanses my skin without irritation.

This cleanser is formulated using natural extracts to effectively remove dirt and oil on all skin types without stripping the skin of essential moisture. Contains no harsh chemicals, non-irritating even on sensitive skin, instantly hydrates, calms, and nourishes.

THE LOOK Straight diagonally-parted bob

HOW-TO “Ask your hairstylist for a wedgy bob full of texture,” says stylist Jerome Lordet of N.Y.C.’s Pierre Michel salon. Get this sleek style by running a flat iron through one-inch sections of hair and finishing with smoothing serum on the ends to keep them smooth.

INSIDER TRICK The front pieces should be chin-length and the back should have layers cut into it. “You get the wedge by layering the hair from shorter to longer at the nape of the neck,” says Lordet.
