Spring Cleaning

Text and Photography provided by Studio Montage

We’ve had a long, harsh winter…many snow days, bitter cold, dry air, and almost no sun. Spring is a great time to do some much needed care on your skin and body. With dreams of summer ahead, start thinking about being at the lake, lots of fun photos and vacations with family and friends. Here are some great spring preps to help look your best when summer hits.


Ah, summertime. Season of swimsuits, suntans and yes, waxing. When the temperature starts to rise, the clothes come off and some serious skin starts appearing. Start the waxing regimen now so when June hits, that smooth and sleek skin will be well-adjusted and easy to maintain. Facial hair? That’s a year-round commitment!


You’ve been out of the sun all winter, so don’t shock your skin in the spring and summer with an overload of sun. Treat it to bring back that radiance and glow and, of course, do not forget about SPF.
