How do you use Biotherm Aquasource to get a fresh-faced look for spring? (You can see my original post on Fashion Magazine here). Spring, at last, is upon us! For me, this means it’s time to put away my winter skincare routine and to bring out my new spring regimen. The key to any spring time routine is to keep your skin moisturized, but not over-moisturized. Did you know that if you fail to swap out your foundation or thick creams for lightweight lotions or tinted moisturizers, could result in clogged pores during the hotter season?
In order to create a fresh-faced look for spring, I tend to stay away from foundation and lean towards a tinted moisturizer instead. However, I have always find that all the tinted moisturizers in the market to be either too pricey or the colour simply does not match my skin. So I have started to make my own formula. It’s really simple and really friendly on the wallet. All you need is your favorite foundation or bb cream and a moisturizer.
For the past month, I have been loving the Biotherm Aquasource 48h Deep Hydration Replenishing Gel as the base of my DIY tinted moisturizer because it blends so well with any foundation. Plus, the gel formula is light and yet provides just the right amount of moisture. I take one part foundation and one part moisturizer and blends everything together with a brush. Simply add more moisturizer for a lighter shade and add more foundation if you need to increase the coverage. Then apply the tinted moisturizer on your face with the brush and you’ll have hydrated skin for the rest of the day!

To remove all my makeup at the end of the day, I’ve been using these two duos. The Biosource Cleansing Oil is great to remove both my eye and face makeup. A few drops of this product, massage it gently over your face and viola! Your makeup will be gone! Then I’ll use the Biosource Exfoliating Gel as the second cleanse. This cleanser has tiny micro-beads that are perfect for everyday use. It exfoliates and removes dead skin from my face.
