How to Get That Springtime Glow Naturally

Although the sun is shining outside and flowers are in bloom, our skin and hair might still be stuck in the winter. Due to the long-lasting damaging effects of cold winds, many Canadians may still be experiencing dryness and brittleness.

Spring is the season of renewal. Today, I’m going to be sharing ways to revitalize your beauty routine to not only help you say hello to refreshed, supple skin and luminous locks this spring, but to help you maintain them throughout the year and beyond, too.

Take a Closer Look at Your Diet

It’s crucial to take the time to think about what you’re putting in your body.

While we know diet is key in maintaining our internal health, it also plays a vital role in enhancing and maintaining our skin.

For instance, omega-3, collagen and probiotics supplements have all been shown to help improve the health of our skin.
