Winter does more than wreak havoc on our rain gutters: The dearth of sunshine, combined with the constant exposure to indoor air, can leave us with a lackluster complexion that only seems to highlight our years. Is it any wonder why we flock outside the moment the sun peeks through the proverbial veil? But embracing the warmer weather without proper planning can ultimately leave you with more of those fine lines and wrinkles that winter tends to accentuate. With these simple steps, you can celebrate the new season and restore your glow.
Vitamin D is essential to a number of functions, including getting your complexion in luminous, tip-top condition. But, while you’re probably aware that your body naturally produces Vitamin D when exposed to sunlight, you’re most likely also concerned with the potentially damaging effects of UV radiation. In addition to wearing sunscreen daily, consider enhancing your intake of Vitamin D. Oral supplements can bolster your levels, but food is a splendid medicine too. Fortified orange juice, milk, fatty fish, cod liver oil are all an excellent sources of Vitamin D. Or, scramble up a veggie omelet that’ll boost skin, heart, and bone health: Eggs, cheese, and mushrooms brim with the sunshine vitamin.
As your body’s largest organ, your skin doesn’t just need outside protection—it also needs to be nourished from within. Besides a nutrient-rich diet that favors fruits and vegetables, consider taking antioxidant supplements. Vitamins A, C, and E can boost cell turnover and safeguard your skin from free radical damage, while selenium—a mineral found in soil—works synergistically with other antioxidants (most notably Vitamin E) to enhance protection and improve elasticity.
Speaking of nourishing from within: Do you know that what you eat has a direct impact on the quality of your skin—and what better time than spring to put this knowledge into action? While the season brims with an abundance of fresh foods that can beautify your complexion (think: asparagus, beets, carrots, and radishes) flavonoid-bursting berries are an especially smart choice for your complexion—meaning you can nosh away on raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, and strawberries, all in the name of anti-aging.
It’s imperative that you keep your skin hydrated by drinking adequate amounts of water. According to leading dermatologist Dr. Doris Day, this is partly due to hyaluronic acid—an ingredient in our skin that facilities its ability to hold water (and thus look plump and lustrous). “When there is adequate water from the inside and out,” she says, “the skin looks healthier and more vibrant and is less prone to wrinkles.” Aim to drink at least half of your body weight in ounces per day, and increase your intake if you’re active. Spice—or, rather, spring—it up with a slice of lemon and a sprig of mint.
Forgoing cleaning is a perennial no-no, as the grime and pollution our skin inevitably comes into contact with can accelerate the signs of aging. And while your partner might be fine with a basic practice of water and soap, it’s important to search for—and use—a moisturizing cleanser. Eavara’s Botanical Facial Cleanser combines ultra-healing Tamuna oil with organic green tea, Vitamin E, and coconut oil to leave your face silky and uber-clean

It Works! I am thrilled with this eye cream. I have ordered it 3 times and will continue to do so. I am a 67 year old woman who wants to look as young as possible. I have tried many eye cream products for puffiness and dark circles. Olay, Boots and countless others to no avail. I am so thankful I discovered this product. The price point on this is amazing, very affordable. This is also a company with high integrity and great customer service values. You will not be sorry if you order this effective product. My puffy eyes are gone.
No More Sephora! Eavara All the Way! I have been looking for a simpler way to hydrate my skin. I have used many products such as Aveda, Ole Hendricksen, Philosophy, Posh, etc. I decided to give Eavara a try since it has a simplified list of ingredients, all in which you know and understand. I have ordered TWICE now and have been very pleased with the results! I am in my mid 30’s and after skin changes due to pregnancies I just want to treat it right and give it the moisture it needs. My skin is hydrated, but not oily. I have sensitive skin too, and this makes it happy! Will be a return customer as long as this sweet little family biz stays around!
Dramatic Difference Around My Eyes! This organic eye serum is making a huge difference around my eyes! Have only been using it for about a month and the difference is dramatic. I have fine lines all around the eyes and deep laugh lines. All are softening and many of the fine lines are disappearing. I live in a very dry climate and this keeps my skin very soft and able to absorb the moisturizer. My makeup looks so much smoother too. Using this with the whole face serum and loving both of them!
Amazing Product! I have been using this product for a month now and I have already seen a difference. It's a nice consistency, not oily, and does not break my face out. The lines under my eyes and the DARK circles from toddler induced wake ups and my life as a teacher, are almost completely unnoticeable. This product has now made it to my "need to have" skin care routine.
