From scalp treatment, exfoliation to sun-protection, follow this 7-day ritual to get yourself protected, treated, and luminous!
Day 1: Scalp Treatment
Springtime marks the beginning of warmer weather and it's likely that your scalp could start to get oily around this time. Your scalp contains tiny pores beneath which lies the sebaceous glands. They produce a natural oil called sebum. Sebum is vital to maintain a healthy scalp and hair. But sometimes, certain factors may contribute to an overproduction of sebum in your skin/scalp, making your hair greasy.

Day 2: Anti-Hair Loss Treatment
Dealing with hair loss is head-scratchingly painful—pun intended. And it is notoriously persistent. Beyond that, it comes down in large part to the fact that it may happen for a variety of reasons like stress, or post-pregnancy hormonal change. Apart from surgical solutions, you can slowly but surely rectify the situation from your daily up-keep with some helpful anti-hair loss treatment.

ICYMI, cica is an effective calming and regenerative ingredient, which helps treat the tired, stressed scalp. Stressed scalp is one of the main causes for early signs of hair loss or even balding if left untreated. So count on the SOME BY MI Cica Peptide Anti Hair Loss Derma Scalp Treatment as it tackles hair loss at its root. Formulated with cica, peptide and black complex, this hair loss treatment strengthens damaged hair strands from the root to prevent hair loss.
Day 3: Tame the Frizz
Unwanted frizz can be a nightmare to deal with, especially during the warm, humid Spring season. While the moisture in the air causes your hair to frizz up, your job is to make sure you're conditioning your hair well enough with anti-frizz treatment so your hair is left hydrated enough without wanting to absorb the moisture outside.

This ampoule has a watery texture that is lightweight and quick to absorb while providing intense nourishment to keep your hair tangle-free all day longs.
Day 4: Bring Back the Shine
Spring is the perfect time to bring back your hair's long lost shine and reverse the damage and kick the repair mode into high gear. Sometimes, shampoos with harsh chemicals can strip off the natural oils from your scalp and hair, and having your hair color-treated multiple times a year can also cause your hair to become dull and dry. So to revive the shine, you are recommended to apply hair mask on a weekly or bi-weekly basis.

Follow it up with a hair serum like the miseenscéne Damage Care Perfect Serum harnesses the moisturizing powers of Moroccan argan oil and 7X Golden Oil™ to bring back the lustrous shine in dry hair while also giving it long-lasting protection.
Day 5: Exfoliate Your Body
It goes without saying: exfoliation is always a must in our book, no matter if it's for your face or body. Essentially, regular exfoliation (we recommend doing it in the shower) is the key to preventing the build-up of dead skin cells and keeping the pores on your body clear. Body wash that doubles as a body scrub will get the job done for you.

This multi-functional body wash has a naturally-scented formula that refines your skin’s texture and provides deep hydration.
Day 6: Use Body Mist
During the spring season, it is best to switch to lightweight formulas that do not clog your pores. Opt for alcohol-free deodorants as antibacterial deodorants or body mists that will keep your skin fresh all day long. Get a few spritz from the CELIMAX Heartleaf BHA Body Mist for your post-shower routine to refresh your summer body.

This body mist can also even out skin tone with niacinamide which will help achieve softer, brighter skin for the body of your dreams.
Day 7: Use Sunscreen on the Body
ICYMI, harmful UV rays can cause as much damage to your body as they can to your face. That's why protecting yourselves and being well-prepared in spring with the best body sunscreens is non-negotiable. Regardless of mineral sunscreen or chemical sunscreen, it is recommended to apply about a shot glass's worth of sunscreen to the entire body so you can have fun in the sun without burning your skin!
