"If spring is all about rebirth and renewal, then I’m pretty sure the beauty equivalent of the changing of the seasons is shedding your flaky, wintered-out skin with a really great exfoliant. Perhaps a tropical fruit exfoliant with bits of seaweed mixed in that looks like vacation in a bottle (i.e. an Organic Avenue smoothie)? Dream with me here.
