Okay, so it’s spring and it’s also my birthday (see how I just slipped that one in there?!). What does that mean? Well, it means that I want to look youthful and be ready to face the world! And nothing says that you are ready to head out and about (and that it isn’t one of those birthdays) like a totally fresh complexion.

So here are my top 5 ways and products to brighten you up this spring!

1. Even out skin tone:

Nothing says age like dull or unevenly pigmented skin and Neostrata has their finger directly on this pulse with their Secure White products. I love this prod that has SPF in it and is suitable for sensitive skin, to boot. This awesome line literally erases brown spots and brightens skin, no matter what your skin colour.

2. Brighten dark circles:

I was super-stoked when I received a sample of Olay Regenrist Dark Circle Correcting Hydraswirl. This product immediately brightens yourunder eye and then treats the area, as well…the brightening part is kinda twinkly, so I know when my man has been dipping in my products…because he has a sparkly patch around his eyes…it’s that good!

3. Tighten to brighten the eyes (and give back to the environment…it is earth day soon!):

Kiehls has come out with a Limited Edition Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado, and 100% of net profits will be used to support the puffins in partnership with the Canadian Wildlife Federation. This program will run for one month in stores and online and I am sure we will be stocking up on these little magic pots so that we don’t run out!

4. Brighten the Bod

Brightening your skin isn’t just for your face…this (creatively spelled) brand, PRTTY PEAUSHUN,  is all about lifting, tightening and giving you light refracting technology for a slimmer and more perfect looking bod. Talk about feeling good in my birthday suit!

5. Shine up those locks:

What says youthful glow like a shiny head of healthy hair? Enter Gloss Appeal by Kerastase which will make yourmane shine like a mirror, people. Oh, and all oftheirproducts smell amazing, too.

Do I feel a year older? Probably. Am I hell-bent on not looking like it this spring? You bet.

Happy Brightening Birthday to everyone!
