(BPT) - With the winter doldrums behind us, it’s finally time to enjoy the warmer weather and get into the spirit of spring. By incorporating some of the season’s latest trends through a few simple tips and tricks, you can make this spring your best one yet.
Pretty and playful pastels
Pastels are the “it” shades of the season, having ruled the spring runways. And now that the sun is finally shining, you can start to add these must-have colors, such as light pink, mint green and even the Pantone color of the year, orchid, into your everyday looks. For a more subtle look, include a pop of color with your shoes or a pastel statement necklace, and for a bolder, more playful look, try out a pair of pastel-colored jeans or experiment with a fun, floral print. All will surely put an immediate spring in your step.
Scents of spring
A change in season also calls for a change in fragrances. Now that it’s officially spring, it’s time to take a break from the heavier scents you have worn all winter and swap in some lighter fragrances with fresh, fruity and floral notes. This season, Dove introduced its new Pistachio Cream with Magnolia Body Wash and Beauty Bar – the newest fragrance addition to the Dove Purely Pampering product collection. Featuring the calming scent of fresh fruit and lush floral, the Dove Purely Pampering Pistachio Cream with Magnolia Body Wash and Beauty Bar will evoke the feeling of spring, leaving you feeling relaxed and pampered. With the re-entry of dresses and sandals into your wardrobe, it’s also important to keep your skin properly hydrated. The mild cleansers and NutriumMoisture(R) found in the body wash and the 1/4 moisturizing cream found in the Beauty Bar replenish skin while cleansing to keep it soft and smooth all season long.
The Dove Purely Pampering Pistachio Cream with Magnolia Body Wash and Beauty Bar can be purchased at food, drug, mass, club and online retailers. For more information, visit www.Dove.com.
Pull back the drapes, raise the blinds and open your windows to let the spring air and natural light in. The annual tradition of spring cleaning is an easy way to bring your home from blue to new with the help of the entire family. Useful projects include de-cluttering closets and removing winter clothes and gear, re-organizing the garage and taking out the patio furniture. However, your home isn’t the only thing in need of revamping. Your makeup bag is too. Make sure to throw away and replace old products that are have passed their shelf life, and switch out those dark lipstick, eye shadow and nail polish colors for pinks, corals, lilacs and soft blues and greens to truly embrace spring style from head to toe.
