Spring is here for most of us and it's all about renewal and change. As warmer weather approaches, our skin care routine will have to change to accommodate sun exposure, dryness, and an active lifestyle. It's also a great time to reset and reboot your skin. With the changes in temperatures your skin care will also need a boost and a tweak.
With that in mind, here are some helpful tips to get your through the transition for a beautiful spring!
Check product expiration dates! Try to do this this at least 2 times a year—and what better time than spring? Most makeup and skin care products do expire, and if you keep using it, you risk break-outs and bacterial infections. Mascara should be tossed 3 times per year, liquid liner and concealer after six months, and lipstick, lip gloss, and foundation after one year. You should also check your moisturizer and sunscreen for an expiration date. If anything is expired, or you’re in doubt, throw it out!
Reorganize. Throw open your windows, toss the old, and reorganize. Now is the time to energize your skin care routine and do a deep organization of your beauty products. Once your expired products are thrown out, take an honest look at what’s left and get rid of what you never use.
Update your skin care. Most of us don’t have the same skin care needs year-round. Sometimes you stay with the same skin care routine but maybe you should add a serum or a gel cleanser to revitalize your skin care collection. Your winter moisturizer is probably too rich for summer, so it’s a good idea to switch to one that’s lighter and contains sun protection. Wake up your skin with something new.
Remove the layers. As you reorganize and update your products, make sure remove the "old" skin layers as well. Exfoliation will prep your skin for your new products. Try a peel that is gentle yet effective. A skin peel is a great way to remove the "winter" layers of skin. Try our Purifying Face Peel. It will gradually exfoliate away dead skin cells, so your face will glow! It's a great way to "Spring Clean" your face.
So embrace the new season with throwing out the old and bringing in the new!
Happy spring clean!

SOURCE AND PROCESS:
Proprietary Complex of seven minerals originating in the Onsen Hot Springs and generated from deep layers in the earth's crust:
- Calcium Carbonate Ore
- Tourmaline Ceramics
- Coral Fossil
- Maifanashi Stone
- Dechlorine Ceramics
Modern science explains the positive impact and benefits of the Onsen phenomenon as deriving from the unique molecular structure of the water – known as anti oxidant micro-water. Ordinary water in their natural state, purified, distilled or de-ionized are bonded together to form 11-12 molecule clusters. The super- tourmaline powder in the Onsen water on the other hand generates the negative ions, which cause the water to reduce the size of the molecule clusters so they consist of only 5-6 molecules. This simple procedure is what creates "Micro water", water that’s essentially ‘smaller’ and therefore able to penetrate deeper into skin layers. Onsen Secret research and development team was able to recreate this smart water in its lab using breakthrough technology; enriched with minerals (Onsen’s proprietary Shichi Complex), vitamins and bio marine extracts, each of the products in the series delivers a 100% pure, potent and active solution. The results of this holistic approach of nature supporting skin’s own process are amazing. Think of it! Most skin care products contain up to 90% ordinary water and the rest are active ingredients, Onsen products on the hand are 100% active!

In the Japanese language, the word Onsen means Natural Hot Springs. There are thousands of highly popular Onsens all across Japan. Every region of the country has its share of hot springs and resort towns, which come with them. The Onsen experience is an integral part of Japan’s history and has been around for centuries. Although Onsens first became ultra popular as destinations in themselves sometime during the Heian Period, many onsens have a history dating back to the earliest years of Japanese settlement. It is likely that the Ainu and wildlife made use of the thermal waters even before this. For example the Yunoyama Onsen in the Suzuka Kokutei Park near Gozaisho-Dake in Mie, not far west of Nagoya, was located in the eighth century by hunters who discovered that deer were enjoying a good hot soak in its waters - to this day Yunoyama's nickname remains "Deer Onsen".
