Spring is here, which means whittling down our wardrobes and waistlines.
Luckily, with longer days and warmer weather, getting back into the swing of exercise may be easier than you think. Just because you are committed to an exercise program does not mean that you can’t have fun while you do it!
There are lots of great ways to get moving and keep motivated this time of year, and here are just a few creative outdoor activities to help you take advantage of the warming spring weather:
Saunter down a trail – The best way to get exercise this spring and enjoy everything in bloom is to go on a hike. Find a new park or trail in the area where you can get some peace of mind while getting your body in tip top shape.
Get on the court – Challenge friends or family to a game of tennis or basketball; both are great sports to play outside on those warm spring days! You’ll have fun spending time out in some sun and getting a cardio workout at the same time.
Explore your surroundings – What better way to get to know your neighborhood or explore a new place than on foot? Grab a friend and set out to reach a new destination while catching up on the latest news and events. Improving your circulation through regular walking can improve immune function, as well as your metabolism and health in general.
Bicycling – Taking a bike ride is another excellent way to get some exercise while having a great time! Make a date out of it and bring some snacks for a picnic in the park to enjoy once you’ve reached your destination.
Make a splash – Just because the water is not warm enough for swimming, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy other water sports. Give paddle boarding or kayaking a try this spring – both give you a great workout whether you enjoy a leisurely trip across a lake or an adrenaline pumping whitewater adventure.
What activities are you looking forward to this season?
It’s time to give your beauty routine a spring cleaning! Say hello to our newest Mia 2 arrivals, including the Limited Edition spring colors – Passion Fruit, Sea Breeze, and Key Lime. These bright Mia 2 colors are sure to brighten up your skincare routine.
Make sure you are ready to take on the sunshine and the warmer weather by following these spring skincare tips:
Sun Protection – Now that the sun is out, it’s even more important to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Layer on the sunscreen before heading outside and throughout the day as needed – your skin will thank you years later.
Moisturizing – Hydration is the key to smoother skin for spring. Use a hydrating moisturizer to keep the new skin cells healthy after cleansing. This will help lock in the moisturizer and keep your skin hydrated throughout the day.
Exfoliating– Although it’s important to be exfoliating throughout the year, it’s no surprise that winter’s extreme weather temperatures and central heating caused your skin to become dry, tight, and dull looking. That’s why now is the time to give your skin some extra care – the process of exfoliation removes the damaged skin cells, giving you healthier skin and a glowing complexion.

For nearly 20 years, Pantone, the global authority on color, has surveyed the designers of New York Fashion Week to bring you the season’s most important color trends. We’ve pulled the colors, some cute clothes and accessories, and our Mia and Mia 2 to help you get the most out of the season’s hottest colors.
Pantone named tangerine the it color of 2012. Tangerine is a very flattering color for most skin tones due to its high saturation and reddish undertones. When the warm weather hits, try wearing a bold dress, top or sandals in this shade. However, if you’re feeling a little color shy, start small by rocking a tangerine manicure or accessory. The newest edition to the Mia 2 family is named mango and matches Pantone’s color of the year to a tee. For those going on name recognition we also have a Limited Edition Mia named Tangerine. Both would be the perfect accessory to add some spring to your bathroom.
Each year the spring color list is not complete without a shade of pink. This season’s chosen hue is a pink with a hint of orange. The color blends femininity and touch of edginess that will be able to work with most wardrobes. Our new Mia 2 in Coral would be a perfect way to bring this spring color into your life.
Anyone who loves color probably has a pop of Kelly Green in their wardrobe. This fresh hue started gaining popularity after Emily Blunt wore it at the SAG Awards earlier this year. It is the perfect pop of color to transition to warmer weather and blooming color palettes. Bring it into your space with our Limited Edition Kelly Green Mia.
The spring 2012 color trends are said to be influenced by “renewed energy, optimism and the promise of a brighter day”. These colors as well as the feeling of Sonic Cleansing embody a mixture of sunny bright, lighthearted hues.
The green movement has never been trendier and we realized this by asking our Clarisonic fans: What should the next color be for the Clarisonic Mia?
We got some amazing feedback and some cool, fun ideas!
With Spring finally here and Summer just around the corner, it made sense that sunset orange, coral, and hot pink, came up as popular ideas. Zebra and leopard print were also lively and exotic, suggestive designs most likely due to the recent availability of prints on QVC and at Sephora.
The color that we found to be on the minds of most of our fans was the color green. We saw different shades, hues, and tones. From lime to kiwi to neon and emerald, it looks like Clarisonic fans love everything about the color green! It makes sense why the color is so popular, while the sight of it can be calming and pleasant, the color green can also be active, exciting, and sporty.
Here are the most popular color suggestions from our fans:
1. Lime Green
2. Hot Pink
8. Emerald Green
9. Polka Dots
10. Kiwi Green
Thank you for your great suggestions, Clarisonic fans!

Spring is just around the corner and creating a dewy look can be tricky. This look is perfect for the upcoming season, synonymous with freshness and renewal. To master a dewy look without appearing too shiny or shimmery, you might want to keep these tips in mind.
1. Use a moisturizer with a light sheen to it.
2. Try an illuminating face primer or highlighter. Your goal here is pearly, not shimmery.
3. Use a sheer foundation so the illuminating face primer or highlighter can show through, mimicking your skin’s glow.
4. Finish your makeup with a translucent finishing powder or a vitamin and mineral infused spray.
5. Eat your Omega-3 fatty acid and anti-oxidants. This nutrient can be found in salmon, nuts and even certain eggs. With plenty of Omega-3s, your skin will look more radiant.
Of course, using your Clarisonic will provide the perfect base to achieve that dewy skin look this Spring.
