Want to show off radiant, glowing skin this spring? Try adding one of these luxurious products to your routine:
MAYA CHIA SUPER COUPLE ULTRA LUX FACE OIL SERUM
Why we like it: The lightweight formula combines a powerful antioxidant with nature’s No. 1 superfood, chia, to combat the appearance of dull, tired skin and leave your skin feeling deeply nourished. Plus, the company is based in Mount Pleasant and uses natural and organic ingredients.
TATA HARPER REGENERATING CLEANSER
Why we like it: The four-in-one product cleanses, purifies, minimizes the appearance of pores and protects the skin’s natural balance. Tip: You can apply TaTa Harper’s Resurfacing Mask on top of the cleanser and leave it on for five to 10 minutes for a deeper exfoliation treatment. The products are natural and nontoxic.
BECCA SHIMMERING SKIN PERFECTOR LIQUID HIGHLIGHTER
Why we like it: It promises to instantly give you that effortless, dewy, natural, sun-kissed glow that we’re all striving for. Tip: Apply the highlighter evenly before and after you apply your foundation.
Sometimes we need our nutrition on the go, and our favorite way to get it is a refreshing blend of fruit and vegetable juice. Here’s where we love to find our cold-pressed or fresh-squeezed juice.
THE DAILY, King Street
We go for the Green Lemonade at the marketplace on King Street brought to you by the owners of Butcher & Bee.
EUCALYPTUS WELLNESS & ELIXIR BAR, Mount Pleasant
The natural health store offers elixirs such as the “Beauty Burst” and the “Caramel Calmer.” There’s also a Hemp Strawberry Smoothie on the menu.
THE JUICE JOINT, locations on James Island, Folly Beach and at the Charleston Farmers Market on Marion Square
We like the “Reviver” and “Good Morning Sunshine.”
When you need to up your water intake, try the Fressko Flask. The stylish, reusable flasks are available in glass or stainless steel and come with a filter that allows you to infuse fruit flavor into your water or make tea. Available at Henry & Eva.
There’s nothing like Charleston’s glorious spring weather to provide motivation to get out of the classroom or studio and take your workout to the great outdoors.
THE RESTORATION ROOFTOP YOGA SERIES
It’s impossible not to feel Zen when you’re stretching toward the sky as you practice your yoga poses. Sign up early for these popular, free classes organized by lululemon on the rooftop of the Restoration Hotel on King Street. Instructors are from Urban Yoga during the month of May. 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays. Sign up at EventBrite.
URBAN SWELL: A YOGA AND SURF COLLABORATIVE
We can’t think of a better way to spend a morning on Folly Beach than starting with a 45-minute beach yoga session and ending with a 90-minute group surf lesson by Charleston Surf Lessons. Offered once a month, this $45 package sells out quickly. 9:15 a.m. to noon, May 27. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Build your core strength when you do your workout on a paddleboard on scenic Shem Creek. The classes are offered by Nature Adventures Outfitters, and some experience on a paddleboard is recommended. 8 to 10 a.m. Mondays and Wednesdays. $30 without your own board. Nature Adventures Outfitters also offers SUP yoga classes.
