If Pennsylvania’s Punxsutawney Phil is to be believed, spring and all its glory will arrive within the next 4-6 weeks. This is great news for those of us feeling perpetually chilled, Vitamin D deprived, and constantly exhausted. Is your complexion also suffering the effects of the mid-winter slump? If so, a few simple tweaks to your daily skin care routine can hasten the return of a brighter, revitalized complexion, and simultaneously uplift your mental wellbeing too!

1. Exfoliate: A guaranteed way to revive lackluster skin is removing the top layer of dead skin cells. Gentle enough for everyday use, the Refining Sugar Cleanser is formulated with natural dissolving cane sugar that transforms into a creamy, foaming lather that effectively lifts away surface impurities and removes makeup to leave skin smooth and refreshed, naturally.

2. Treat: Restoring moisture is key to resuscitating a drained complexion, and layering a serum rich in hyaluronic acid will immediately boost moisture levels. The Ultra Hyaluronic Hydrating Serum delivers an optimal dose of hydration with a nourishing blend of Hyaluronic Acid, Sodium PCA, Squalane, and fortifying amino acids.

3. Target: The eye area suffers most when sleep and moisture are in short supply. Send bags packing with Magnolia Fresh Eyes, a targeted eye treatment that features a cooling blend of Caffeine, Peptides, and plant extracts to reduce puffiness and decrease the appearance of dark circles and fine lines. Use morning and night to brighten and energize the eye area.

4. Protect: Take a cue from our furry friend Phil, and always shield your complexion from nature’s harsh and drying elements. Applying a moisturizer compatible with your skin type day and night will keep skin touchably soft, while actively repairing the daily wear and tear.
