It’s March 1st! I don’t know about you guys, but I HATE March! You know why? March is a ‘spring’ month that isn’t really spring. Sometimes you’ll get a few days warm days that get you excited and then BAM a cold, wet snow rolls in.

But that doesn’t mean we can’t spend this trickster of a month getting ready for the real spring! Here are some things you can do now to ensure you feel great by the time the weather actually warms up.

Hit the Treadmill

I signed up for a June half marathon which means spring training! I sneak out when the weather cooperates but on those super windy days, I head inside and hit the treadmill.  You also want to shape up for those cute spring dresses!

Prep your hair

During colder winter months, your hair dries out and you spend a lot of time covering it up with your toque.  When spring time rolls around, it’s time to get your hair game back and set those luscious locks free! I’ve written about PRIORIN® supplements before. They’re a hair growth supplement that contains a combination of millet extract, L-cystine, calcium pantothenate and biotin to increase and improve hair growth and support the maintenance of healthy hair.

I would also advise getting a spring trim or hair cut. Say goodbye to dead ends!

Prep your wardrobe

Because of my tiny house and closet, I do a twice a year rotation of my clothes. I pack away my spring/summer duds in September and swap them out on Easter weekend. Out come all my cute sundresses and maxi dresses that I love bumming around in all summer long. What pieces do you love and can’t wait to wear again?

I also want to add a couple trendy new pieces for the summer. I’m really digging those off the shoulder, blue and white striped shirts that I’m seeing everywhere. I think I want to add one of those to my wardrobe this year.

 

Spring Clean Your Clothes & Beauty Supplies

Another great way to prep is to get rid of all the stuff you know you won’t wear or use. I am very picky about what goes in my closet because my closet is so small. When I do my wardrobe swap, I re-evaluate every piece of clothing before I put it in my closet. If I didn’t wear it once the year before, I donate it immediately. I also like to use this as a chance to raid my bathroom and throw out old nail polish, make-up and lotions.

Prep your skin

We all bundle up in layers upon layers to stay warm in the winter. It’s easy to hide unsightly/unattractive skin conditions under a winter wardrobe but the weather will warm-up soon enough, and now is the time to prep your skin to make sure you’ll be comfortable in your spring and summer clothes. For example, if skin tags are an issue (my mom once had one on her eyelid), you can effectively treat them at home with Dr. Scholl’s Skin Tag Remover, a doctor-proven, easy-to-use cryotherapy product that freezes the skin tag from the base; once new, healthy skin has formed underneath, the skin tag will fall off, usually within 10 days.

What else are you doing to prepare for warmer weather?
