Happy #beautymonday, everyone! I hope every had a wonderful weekend. Today is one of my favorite days in the WORLD….it’s my WEDDING anniversary! I’ve been married to my sweet and amazing husband Adam for two years and let me tell you – it’s THE BEST two years of my entire life. I am so lucky that Adam decided to put up with me forever and is so dang patient with me all the time. I have lots of posts coming that reflect on our last two years – but for now, you’ll have to wait until our anniversary photoshoot comes back from the photographer (they were vintage fairytale themed and gorgeous). Today, I am partnering up with Physicians Formula to bring you FIVE ways to revive dull skin this spring – because if you are anything like them, you live with this issue. Let’s dive into this.

This is SO important because one of the reasons skin looks dull and less glow-y than it should be is because your dead skin cells are straight chilling on your face. Get rid of those suckers with a really good exfoliator like the Physicians Formula detox stick or No7 Only Beautiful Skin Radiance Exfoliator. Both are amazing drugstore exfoliators that will remove dead skin, brighten new skin, promote cell turnover and gently cleanse. This is honestly the FIRST step you need to take to start your journey to brighter skin.
Serums are honestly usually forgotten and under appreciated. Even if you have oily skin, you should be using a serum in your skincare routine. This 24-Karat gold collagen serum is AMAZING for your skin and has about a million benefits, obviously one being brightening for your skin. If also delivers high cell turnover for more youthful looking skin and a good dose of brightening vitamin B3. I love how glow-y my skin looks when I use it – WITHOUT being oily. It just looks natural radiant which is all a girl can ask for, amiright?
This is so important is for you want to ditch dull skin. I have fallen in love with this vitamin C facial oil. I used to be scared of facial oils because I have oily skin and then I realized the reason my skin was oily is because it was TOO dry and was overproducing. When I started adding more moisture and good serums and oils, my skin FINALLY started to right itself. I am not there all the way yet, but well on my way to balanced skin. This one has SPF 30, vitamin C, anti-aging properties and hydrating orange and sunflower. I won’t pretend to know what that means 100% but I do know I like the way my skin feels when I use it.
When your lips are bight and hydrated, they hold product better. Yes – even your lips need some love!! I have become mildly obsessed with this organic wear lip treatment. It’s honestly one of my new favorite products. I know I have like a zillion lip balms. I love (as it turns out – I’m kind of a lip balm hoarder?????) but this one is FOR REAL. It’s so shiny – so it doubles as a gloss and since my makeup has been on more of the natural side lately, a glossy balm is the perfect top to my look. It lasts for quite a while and has Coconut Oil, Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter, and Vitamin E. Aka even if you don’t hoard lip balm you need this one. Also it has a really cool twist off lid so you don’t accidentally wash it and lose the cap in the washing machine and ruin all your clothes. Not that I’ve done that. A friend did…
Number Five: Invest in a good brightening facial spray.
It’s one of my all time favorite products and they are SO good for you. They smell amazing and feel so great on your skin. I keep a travel size with me for mid-day pick me ups and travel and a full size one of my vanity at all times. Aloe vera, gardenia, rose and thyme help to re-engergize and brighten skin for a more radiant glow!
