Is Spring FINALLY here?
Last week I was still wearing 2 coats. TWO. COATS. And now all of a sudden it’s sweater weather.
Not that I’m complaining. I was in need of a strong dose of sunshine.
The thing I’m MOST excited about the weather changing is that I can change up my skin care routine again!
Just like with my DIY Beauty essentials for winter I’ve spend all weekend concocting my skin care routine for the season ahead. These finally made the cut:
Coconut Oil Eye Makeup remover pads
I love micellar water (read all about it in my post: the only drugstore product I put on my face) as a daily cleanser.
But when it comes to waterproof makeup you just need to step up your game. Enter coconut oil.
These quick and easy Eye Makeup Remover Wipes wipe away waterproof anything with a breeze. The best part about it: you only need 1 ingredient! (well, 2 if you count the cotton pads).
Balancing Facial Oil
A new season means a new facial oil blend! My previous oil blend saved my skin this winter.
For spring I wanted a lightweight formula so I went with two of my favorite oils: grape seed oil and rose hip seed oil. I mixed 3 tablespoons of each and topped it off with 1 tablespoon of vitamin E oil.

Anti Acne Clay mask
Once a week I treat myself to a Pure Clay Mask. Out of all of the Pure Clay Face Masks I made the mask with french green clay is currently my favorite.
French green clay is a very powerful clay that draws out impurities from the skin. Perfect to get my skin glowing and clear for spring!
Calming Chamomile toner
All of my skin care routines contain 1 natural toner. This season I’m using chamomile toner water.
I use it to freshen my face in the morning or to remove any last bits of clay mask on my face.
Chamomile water has amazing calming and balancing benefits for your skin.
Anti Acne Aloe Vera Gel
One of the staple Beauty products in my bathroom. I use this product over my face oil.
In case any spots pop up I dab a little bit of my zit zapper gel on top of it and let it work its magic overnight.
Pink Lip Gloss balm
Every season needs its lip balm. This time I wanted something with a hint of color.
I melted 1/4 of a teaspoon of beeswax with 2 teaspoons of coconut oil. Once melted I added a few shavings of lipstick. You can also use a pinch of mica for color.
It turned out more like a lip gloss than a lip balm. But I love it! Check out my tutorial for a tinted lip balm if you want something a little more lasting.
Honey Lip scrub
To prep my lips for said lip gloss I use a DIY Lip Scrub. This one is made with moisturizing honey, almond oil and sugar as an exfoliant.
