Spring is the perfect time for cleaning out your closets, organizing your life, and sprucing up your beauty regimen. After all, it’s a period of renewal and rejuvenation—why shouldn’t your skin, hair, and nails reap the benefits?
But as you already know if you read about hormones, everything is about timing. There are certain phases of your cycle when high-intensity workouts make optimal use of your current hormone balance and times when rest and restorative yoga are the best forms of exercise for your body and mind. There are weeks when it’s smart to schedule big meetings and speaking engagements and weeks you’re better off focusing your energy on detail-oriented tasks that call for solo time. So it’s probably no surprise that just as your hormones should dictate everything from your food choices to your sex habits (yes, seriously), they should also play a major part in planning your primping sessions.
