During the winter months, we double down on our skincare routines, countering the harsh weather with heavier skincare products. The onset of spring brings with it greater warmth and humidity; this change in the external environment demands a corresponding change to our skincare routines. In Ayurveda, the process of adjusting one’s habits in accordance with the season is called Ritucharya. Ayurveda emphasizes the interconnectedness of mind, body, spirit and external environment. A change in one’s external environment thus has the potential to throw one’s constitution out of balance—especially in combination with unsuitable skincare products, this can lead to conditions like acne or oiliness.
During spring, one should switch to skincare products that are lighter and formulated with natural, organic ingredients. Wondering how to make the transition and keep your skin balanced, glowing and hydrated this spring? These 3 UMA products are made of lightweight, yet powerful formulas that will leave you looking as radiant as the spring weather
One way to incorporate lightweight hydration and glow into your routine is by using a toner. Our Absolute Anti Aging Aloe Rose Toner is formulated with potent, nutrient-packed Ayurvedic botanicals that brighten and hydrate the skin while also providing strengthening and healing benefits. During the winter, you may find that you’ve accumulated excess Kapha, which results in feelings of fatigue and weariness—both emotionally and on the surface of the skin.
This toner is formulated with orange extract, which repairs damage, and turmeric, which strengthens and protects the skin. Cinnamon and tomato fight off wrinkles and age spots, while aloe and watermelon provide lightweight hydration. Combined with luxurious rose water, these ingredients together form a refreshingly bright aroma that will engulf you in sweetness.
A refreshing spritz of this toner not only calms and brightens the skin—it also provides a rejuvenating and energizing effect, leaving you feeling ready to face the day ahead.
How to use:
Shake thoroughly before use. After cleansing, apply using a cotton pad to skin in gentle circular motion. Leaves skin perfectly prepped for the absorption of your favorite UMA Face Oil that follows.
Especially if you struggle with dryness, our Ultimate Brightening Face Oil is an excellent lightweight source of moisture that deeply hydrates the skin without leaving behind any sticky residue. Formulated with potent, anti-aging sandalwood, neroli, rose and frankincense essential oils, this face oil combats wrinkles, dryness and unevenness, minimizing signs of fatigue to produce a radiant, glowing complexion. Its pomegranate oil base ensures rapid and effective absorption, leaving the skin with a natural glow.
You can even replace your regular moisturizer with this face oil for a lightweight hydrating alternative during this period of warmer weather.
How to use:
Massage 2-3 drops between your palms, and gently pat your face, in firm circular motions all over your face, neck and décolletage. This may be used on its own, or as the final step in your moisturizing routine.
Springtime is the season of love—and what better way to celebrate the beauty of the season than by engulfing yourself in a sweet, luscious aroma to match? Richer than oil and lighter than cream, our luxurious Pure Love Body Balm—part of our recent Pure Love Collection—provides deep hydration without leaving behind any residue. Moringa and pomegranate nourish and firm the skin while neroli and geranium brighten, tighten and combat wrinkles or other damage. Together, these ingredients create a sweet and lifting aroma that surrounds you in feelings of warmth and indulgence.
Not only will the skin become refreshed, soft and radiant—you’ll also relish in the luxuriousness of this self-care experience, feeling a serenity and self-confidence that will last all day.
How to use:
Warm a small amount of balm into hands and massage into the body using deliberate, circular strokes. Pay attention to areas that need extra healing, such as elbows, hands, and feet. Allow a few minutes for the balm to absorb before getting dressed. Use as often as desired, ideally after a shower or bath.
