Spring has sprung! Like many of you, I have been caught up with spring cleaning and tending to the garden over the last few weeks. But spring shouldn’t just be about cleaning, yard work, and planning summer activities for the kids. This season, P&G wants you to remember to take a “spring break” from your busy schedule and treat your self to some springtime pampering. I have some great ideas and tips to share with you from the P&G Have You Tried This Yet? program.
Me, Myself and I: Tips to Help You Blossom this Season
Now that your winter hats are in storage and the weather is warming up, head to your local hair salon for a shorter ‘do. Your new look will give you a boost of confidence, while helping you turn over a new spring leaf.
Move your indoor workout outside! Go for a morning walk or head to your local park and strike some yoga poses to soak in the peace of the great outdoors.
With the weather heating up, you can finally look forward to showing off your legs. Use the Gillette® Venus & Olay™ razor to boost your shave and help lock in skin’s moisture* so you can wear that spring sundress with pride!
Sip on your morning “cup of jo” on your porch or patio. Use this time to clear your mind and soak in some springtime rays.
