Spring break, while a wonderful time to head to the beach or set time aside to explore warmer weather, is also a great opportunity to take a closer look at your beauty routine. Whether you’re looking to refine your skin care routine with a face mask or face scrub or your makeup routine by tossing out old heavy foundations in favor of lighter formulas for spring, below we share eight simple ways to make the most of your beauty routine over spring break. And what better way than to start on a week when you actually have time to dedicate to the new and improved you?

1. ADD A FACE MASK TO YOUR ROUTINE...OR 5

There’s nothing like a face mask to help relax a little when you have off from school or work. The best part is that there are tons of face masks out there that can help target specific skin care concerns. To help you meet your face mask match, check out our five options below. You can apply different face masks to different areas of your face at the same time, depending on your concerns—this is known as multi-masking. Use the below face masks 2-3 times a week for best results.

If you’re concerned about rough skin and clogged pores…use the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refining Face Mask. Formulated three clay and red algae extract to help exfoliate dead skin cells from skin’s surface, this face mask also lifts away dirt and oil from clogged pores. The end result is a polished, smooth-looking complexion. After you’re done, your skin texture will appear refined and pores will look minimized.

Where to apply it: any areas of skin where you are bothered by clogged pores.

If you’re concerned about dull, tired skin…use the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Face Mask. This face mask formula with three clays and charcoal acts like a magnet to unclog pores, drawing out impurities like dirt, oil, and pollution from skin’s surface. The creamy, non-drying formula helps leave your skin looking noticeably brighter and feeling clean and velvety-smooth. Your complexion will also look more even.

Where to apply it: any areas of skin that you experience a buildup of dead skin cells.

If you’re concerned about oily skin…use the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Face Mask. This face mask formula with three clays and eucalyptus helps to remove dirt and oil from the surface of the skin. This face mask helps mattify the appearance of your skin, making it look less shiny. It also reduces excess oil on skin’s surface and makes pores look tightened and less visible—all without over-drying.

Where to apply it: any areas of skin where you experience excess oil and shine.

If you’re concerned about congested pores and stressed skin…use the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clear & Comfort Face Mask. Formulated with three clays and seaweed, this face mask helps draw out buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils, visibly reduce the appearance of imperfections, clear the look of congested pores, and gently cleanse skin. When you’re finished, skin is not only clean but refreshed and comfortable.

Where to apply it: any areas of the skin that are stressed.

If you’re concerned about rough texture and uneven tone…use the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clarify & Smooth Face Mask. The face mask formula with three clays and yuzu lemon extract helps shed rough, dead skin cells from skin’s surface, clarify tone, and improve skin texture. Rinse off to reveal skin left with a clean glow.

Where to apply it: any areas of the skin that are uneven with roughness and imperfections.

2. EXFOLIATE WINTER-WEATHERED SKIN WITH A FACE SCRUB

While you’re at refining your face, another great way to refresh your complexion is with a gentle face scrub. There are many different types on the market, but we particular enjoy the smoothing effect of sugar scrubs. To give it a try, take a peek at the face scrubs below.

L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Purify & Unclog Face Scrub: Get your green on by using this green face scrub formulated with kiwi and three types of sugar to gently yet effectively exfoliate the surface of skin and purify the look of skin. Immediately, skin looks smooth and glowing.

L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Nourish & Soften Face Scrub: In addition to the combo of three sugars, this face scrub is also formulated with finely crushed cocoa, luxurious coconut oil, and rich cocoa butter. Immediately after use, skin looks more refined and feels softer and smoother and skin feels comfortable. With continued use over time, skin looks smoother and glowing.

L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Smooth & Glow Face Scrub: This face scrub provides gentle yet effective exfoliation for glowing, baby-soft skin on both face and lips. It’s formulated with finely ground acai and nutrient-rich grapeseed and monoi oils, along with three sugars. Immediately after use, skin feels smoother and looks glowing. With continued use over time, skin looks rebalanced and glowing with a more refined texture.

Whichever you choose, simply smooth a small amount of the face scrub onto clean, dry skin, avoiding your eye area. Massage the face scrub over your face with wet fingers, then rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water. Have flaky lips? Our scrubs can be used there, too!

3. GET IN THE HABIT OF WEARING BROAD-SPECTRUM SUNSCREEN EACH AND EVERY DAY

If you’re the kind of person who only uses sunscreen on vacation when you’re sitting by the pool, it’s time to change that. Here’s the thing—it’s important to wear broad-spectrum sunscreen every single day—rain or shine—since, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation, you can get burned even on cloudy days. Yes, really. If that simple fact doesn’t convince you, consider the fact that spending time out in the sun sans protection can lead to damage, which can show up as visible signs of aging like dark spots and fine lines and wrinkles down the road. Use a moisturizer with SPF, like the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLight Bright Reveal Brightening Day Moisturizer SPF 30, applying it as directly.

4. GIVE YOUR SKIN A BREAK FROM HEAVY FOUNDATION FORMULAS

While winter may call for heavier formulas to help cover up the appearance of extra-dry skin, spring calls for something a little more lightweight so as to not weigh your complexion down as the temperatures heat up. The solution? A no makeup, makeup glowing approach to skin. To get the look, try swapping your regular foundation out with the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer. Squeeze some of the makeup-meets-skin care product onto a L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender and stipple it onto your skin for unmatched allover radiance. Next, dab some of the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Super-Blendable Multi-Use Concealer under your eyes and blend it in with the applicator. To top off your look, blend some of the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops along your cheekbones for a light-bending effect from every angle.

5. TREAT YOUR HAIR TO A LUXURIOUS NO-FUSS SHEET MASK

Who said masks are just for your face? Why not extend the love to your locks? This time, instead of slathering your strands in a creamy hair mask, why not try an innovative hair sheet mask? With the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Intense Repair Hair Sheet Mask and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Deep Moisture Hair Sheet Mask you’ll be able to take your hair care routine to the next level. Both of these hair sheet masks feature a hydrating, sulfate-free formula-filled sheet mask cap that you place on your hair after shampooing. Shower steam allows for the formula to melt onto hair. Each hair sheet mask is single use and can be used in place of conditioner. The EverPure Deep Moisture Hair Sheet Mask envelops hair in a delicate layer or nourishing cream to replenish moisture, while the EverPure Intense Repair Hair Sheet Mask envelops hair in a delicate layer of cream to help protect damaged hair.

6. GET YOU FAUX GLOW ON

Not going on a warm-weathered vacay like everyone else who seems to be from the looks of your social media feeds? Who says that means you can’t score a seasonal tan without it? With the L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze™ Hydrating Self-Tanning Milk Medium you’ll be able to achieve hydrated, nourished, natural-looking, streak-free color over time. Designed to gradually deliver an even, bronzed glow while softening and nourishing skin, you’ll look fresh off the beach by the time you get back to your regular everyday life. Use as your body lotion three times a week.

7. GIVE YOUR HAIR A BREAK FROM THE HOT TOOLS

Spring break is a time for beachy retreats and time away from your regular schedule. Even if you’re not going on a luxurious vacation, why not give yourself a beachy hair look in the meantime? Simply spritz with the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray and scrunch for optimal results.

8. Experiment with a New Hair Color

Ready to step out of your hair color comfort zone and try something new? Give a bold hair color a test drive with the L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Sprays, which are available in a variety of on-trend shades, including rose gold and pastel mint. Place a towel around your clothes, shake the can well, and spray on color from 4-6 inches away from dry hair. Wait a few minutes for the color dry completely. Color washes out in one shampoo, so you can play with a new hue the next day!
