It's that time of the year, Angels 💖 Waking up to the sounds of birds in the morning. Spots of green here and there. Wearing lighter layers and cute bralettes. Planting flowers and afterward sitting in the sun and drinking lavender lemonade. I love spring. It represents a new beginning. New life. Is there anything more exciting?

Part 1: Skincare
1. Cleanser: I use NO7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Oil, first. I love this oil cleanser because it's infused with rosehip oil and vitamin E, which are both holy when it comes to skincare. Three pumps, then I massage it into my skin dry before I wash it off. It's light and doesn't leave any residue, which I really love. Right after that, I use my Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser, and by the time I'm done cleansing, my skin feels so soft and fresh 🕊

2. Face Masks and Exfoliators: My new favorite exfoliator is Venofye's Queen Bee Facial Peeling. It honestly blows my mind. I apply it to my face dry and after I rub it in circular motions, I can literally see a layer of dead skin come off. It makes my face so bright and my skin so smooth it's unbelievable. I'm only supposed to use it once a week because it's such a good exfoliator, and afterward, I use Venofye's Queen Bee Day Moisturizer. Other masks I love are Lush's Dark Angels and Ocean Salt. As for facial masks...

Tony Moly. Tony Moly. Tony Moly. I'm in love with his masks.

2. Toner: Lush's Tea Tree Toner will always be my go-to. I've tried other toners, including Witch Hazel, and for me personally, it always dried me out. But the Tea Tree Toner makes my skin feel extremely fresh and clean. Toners are a great way to balance out the pH of your skin.

3. Aloe Vera: I love aloe vera. I love it so much. I have a plant that I keep and every day I rip off a part of a leaf and just rub it all over my face. It helps with scarring, eczema, acne, and redness. Be careful not to get it in your mouth, though. The taste isn't as pleasant.

4. Moisturizer: My favorite to this day is still Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré. It's light, milky, and just so heavenly. One time I forgot to moisturize and my skin suffered all day.

5. Sunscreen: Don't forget to put it on, angels. It'll save your skin a lot of heartbreak later on. I use Sun Bum sunscreen lotion SPF 50. The higher the SPF, the better the coverage.

And to top it off, I spray Mario Badescu's Rose Water on my face. It's a refreshing pick-me-up and it smells so good. 🌹
