Spring cleaning: not just for houses, anymore! Do you go through your products and adjust your routine seasonally? You should! Here are some of our favourite ways to spring clean your beauty products to get ready for hotter weather:

Best Before: Are you scraping the bottom of the container? While we don’t want to waste products, these items do have expiry and best before dates. For example, mascara should be replaced every 3 months (think seasonally) so that bacteria doesn’t accumulate in the wand. Take a look through your favourites and toss what’s old, and then add what you need for the upcoming season.

 Brush it off: Your brushes also accumulate dirt, dust and bacteria and should be cleaned on a regular basis. If this isn’t your habit, now’s just the right time to make them just like new. There are tons of cleaning solutions, tools, silicone mats – and more – to help make this job easier, in fact most can be washed with whatever shampoo is already in your bathroom. And if cleaning is not in the cards, treat yourself to a new set this spring!

 Up your SPF: Plan on upping your Vitamin D? If you haven’t spent much time in the sun during the winter months, then the products you’re using are likely lacking in SPF. For maximum sun protection, sunscreen is your best bet, of course, but a moisturizer with SPF might just do the trick for spring. From powdered makeup to lotions with sunscreen, take a look at what you’re using and make sun protection a priority this season.

 Mane Attraction: Even your hair appliances need a little TLC occasionally… Free your flat iron or wand from product residue and dirt with a cotton ball and some rubbing alcohol. Leave your hair dryer good as new with a once-over on the vent with a damp cloth. Clean out your hairbrush, wash with mild soap and water and let it dry on a towel to return it to its full potential.
