Welcoming the fickle spring with calm.
Although we can't let go of our outerwear just yet, the air outside is starting to feel a lot like spring. In Japan, spring is the season of new beginnings, which means there will be a lot of changes. We can get a lot of pressure on the skin due to environmental changes caused by a new chapter in life or seasonal changes like hay fever. So let's spend our time taking care of our body and mind.
Just when you think it's warm today, the next day gets cold enough to make your collar turned up. Every day, we wait impatiently for the cherry blossoms to come into full bloom with the cold and warm weather going back and forth. In Japan, we say, "February's snow, March's wind, and April's rain make for a beautiful May," and other countries have similar expressions. In England, they say that March winds and April showers bring forth May flowers. There is a similar expression in Spain, which means that the happy times will come if you endure the hard times. It's a perfect phrase for this time of year, isn't it?
Spring brings hopes for new chapters in life, but it is also brings a lot of pressure on the skin due to seasonal changes and hay fever. If you are struggling with sensitive skin, gently wipe it with a soft, clean towel. Hippopotamus towels are perfect for all skin types, including sensitive skin and will soothe both your body and mind. They also make a great stress relief gift for those spending this season in a new environment. Send your loved ones your gratitude and encouragement with a towel as vivid as a blooming flower.
