Spring is in full swing, which means it’s time to wiggle your toes in the sunshine and show off your skin that’s been hiding under sweaters all winter long! Today I have a roundup of some of my skincare favorites (sensitive-skin friendly) that will help your skin spring out of winter blues and keep it glowing while enjoying the warm weather!
Farmhouse Fresh Rainbow Road Hand & Body Shea Butter Cream – This Shea butter whip is a delightful treat for dry skin! Scented with a light, uplifting blend of coconut and bartlett pear to instantly transport you to a sunny place, this natural body cream contains a supple blend of Shea and cocoa butters, jojoba seed oil, soybean oil, aloe and vitamins A to soften and soothe even the severest of dry skin. Aloe and vitamin E also help to calm skin irritations and sunburns. The 97% natural formula is vegan, paraben- and gluten-free.
Devera Naturals Bodacious Lips – This multi-tasking formula is a plumper, balm and gloss all in one! Infused with the goodness of shea butter, licorice root extract, soybean seed extract and emollient oils, this rich and lasting formula helps increase collagen in the lips and provides long-term hydration and plumping. Can be used alone or over lipstick.
Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Treatment – This deep cleansing treatment hydrates, exfoliates, and purifies in a hot minute, leaving your face glowing and never stripped! The creamy oil cleanser starts out as a cream and melts into an oil, detoxifying and dissolving skin impurities. It also comes with a double-sided cleansing cloth that includes a muslin side to lightly exfoliate skin, and a soft microfiber side to remove all traces of makeup, dirt, and dead skin. Gentle and suitable for all skin types, it’s especially great for dry and sensitive ones!
Aveeno Positively Radiant Targeted Tone Corrector – Give your beauty routine a boost and banish sunspots with this naturally brightening targeted treatment that helps fade the look of stubborn dark spots, discolorations and uneven tone to improve skin’s radiance in just 2 weeks, with continued improvement over time. The concentrated, yet gentle formula combines active naturals Total Soy Complex with Vitamin A for faster results. Use it as a spot treatment for dark spots and areas with uneven tone in the AM and PM before your moisturizer. Be sure to follow up with SPF during daytime to prevent future dark spots!
Soften Her – During spring and summer months, there’s nothing more frustrating than second-day leg stubble, especially when you’re about to hit the pool or beach in your new bikini! Thankfully, when there’s no time to shave daily, there’s Soften Her! This discreet, hypoallergenic pad softens the sharp edges of stubble on legs, underarms and bikinis areas. Just whip it out and gently buff the desired areas for a just-shaved feel in seconds! Plus, it exfoliates skin and clears away dead skin cells that can build up and cause ingrowns and other unsightly skin issues. One box of Soften Her ($11.99) contains three pads that can last up to two months each, so you’ll be set all summer long.
Vivicin Lip Treatment – Prone to cold sores? This ultra hydrating natural lip treatment (think the best lip balm you’ve tried) not only quickly heals and soothes a cold sore outbreak but also works to prevent you from ever getting a cold sore! Packed with a blend of nourishing oils, the formula can be used to keep your lips hydrated and healthy even if you don’t suffer from cold sores. Vivicin is safe for pregnant and nursing mothers and gentle enough to use every day.
ViDerm SPF 50+ Sun Protection – Sunscreen should not be designated for only pool days and beach trips. Sun protection is a must every day, especially during spring and summer months! ViDerm SPF 50+ is a light-weight and non-greasy formula that provides broad spectrum (UVA and UVB) protection with 10% Zinc Oxide and 7.5% Octinoxate. Aloe Barbadensis Gel, Pueraria Lobata Root extract and Chamomille sooth the skin, while Green Tea extract protects from UV damage and inflammation. Can be used alone or with your tinted moisturizer before applying your makeup. The water resistant formula remains active for up to 40 minutes while participating vigorous aerobic activity (water or sweat).
