There is something refreshing about the spring time that makes us want to simplify and rejuvenate, a light detox if you will. The trend “Spring Cleaning” surfaces every March, and we can’t help but want to do some minimizing ourselves. From our closets, workout routines, eating choices, makeup and even our nail colors, the modern woman deserves a low maintenance routine that doesn’t compromise her style. Here are four reasons why the modern woman is going natural this Spring.
Beyond The Pale Pink: Time to declutter your home, starting with your closet.
Ever feel like you have nothing to wear with a closet full of clothes? This is a common problem when your closet is overflowing with things that are never worn or doesn’t quite fit you right. The modern woman should look effortless day after day. By ditching the things you haven’t worn in ages and replenishing your closet with staples, you’ll never have to think twice about what you should wear. It will come naturally, just like your favorite nail color.
The Beige of Reason: Barely there makeup is your new best friend.
Along with natural nails this spring, natural makeup is also something to consider. With a hint of fresh sunshine in the air, you are already effortlessly glowing. Stick with neutral beiges and pale pinks when thinking of tones for your skin. Sometimes leaving the house with sunscreen and a lip tint is more than enough.
Glow the Extra Mile: Skip the gym, and get your workout outdoors.
The modern woman doesn’t always have time to hit the gym, but by incorporating workouts into her everyday lifestyle, she doubles her time, which leaves precious minutes for other important things. Now that the weather is heating up, take the time to get some fresh air. The simplicity of using your body to get you from point A to point B releases endorphins that put you in a good mood all day. Plus, after a stressful day of work, a walk or bike ride home might be just what you need to unwind.
Patience Pays Off: Slow down and take time to enjoy the little things like cooking a good meal.
The modern woman eats healthily and treats her body with respect. Take the time on weekends to go to the Farmer’s Market and pick out delicious foods and sit down to prepare and jot down your meals for the upcoming week. The more you take the time to cook and prepare your meals, the better your body will feel. With additional time in the kitchen, natural nails will last longer and a paint chip will go unnoticed.
At the end of the day, natural is better. Natural does not mean that you aren’t trying, but merely exudes the effortless attitude that people can’t quite put their finger on. By embracing a minimized wardrobe, fresh skin, exercising outside and cooking nutritious meals, you are setting yourself up for a season full of happiness and content.
