Spring is finally here, which means it’s time to hit the refresh button for all things beauty. With warmer weather on the horizon, not only do we want the sun to shine but also our skin to glow! During the season of all things fresh, your complexion deserves a reboot too.
Below I’ve rounded up 8 skincare essentials that will help your skin spring out of winter blues and get glowing again! From a de-stressing face mask to a superfood-packed skincare system to combat every skin concern, here are the must-have spring beauty buys you need to help regain a radiant-looking complexion…
Is your complexion as dreary as the winter weather? Get your natural glow back with this exfoliating cream that features a 12% glycolic acid (an alpha hydroxy acid) which works by gently releasing dead skin cells allowing fresh, smoother skin to come to the surface.
Plus, it contains antioxidants and peptides to help reduce the appearance of lines & wrinkles and improve skin’s texture— anti-aging and renewing all at once! Just apply a thin layer of the cream…a little goes a long way to keep your skin in tip-top shape!
Whether your skin suffers from seasonal dryness (winter woes!) or just seems to be perpetually parched, this powerful facial oil treatment is a savior for stressed skin. Each “dose” of this silky concentrate is housed in a convenient, single-use ampoule so you get fresh product with each application.
Loaded with potent antioxidants, nourishing plant oils and soothing emollients, the gentle fragrance-free formula calms and recharges your complexion overnight while you catch up on some much-needed beauty sleep…lazy girl approved!
We’ve all heard that beauty comes from within, when we nourish our skin from the inside out. But with our hectic lifestyles, it’s much easier said than done, right? This two-step skin care system is a super easy way to accomplish that!
Designed for finicky, acne-prone skin (like mine), ZSS Clear Skin is a superfood packed 2-step skincare system that comes with a 30 day supply of pre-made dietary supplement packets (which makes it so convenient!) + Nutri-Serum that works its magic topically to knock out blemishes.
These skin-saving supplements contain zinc, Vitamin D, zeaxanthin (a powerful antioxidant), several probiotics, fish oil, and superfoods like turmeric, broccoli, and green tea (just to name a few) to help you get clear & healthy skin from inside out. They also have a Radiant Skin System for a supercharged anti-aging boost!
Looking for instant gratification? This detoxifying face mask works its magic in just 5-10 minutes, leaving your skin soft, refreshed and oh-so glowy! The formula combines the hydrating power of pure Arctic spring water with antioxidant-rich pine bark and natural exfoliating particles from Nordic Cranberries to help purify skin and restore natural radiance. It’s the perfect pick-me-up for dull skin. Not to mention, it smells divine…score!
Infused with the goodness of skin-loving ingredients like a super ceramide complex, collagen, hyaluronic acid, licorice root, and avocado (just to name a few) that work together to counter the look of dark circles and puffiness, this cream is such a refreshing treat for tired eyes!
The fragrance-free moisturizing formula is perfect for even the most sensitive skin. And I love its subtle apricot tint that does a bit of color correcting too…hello, bright eyes!
Now that spring has sprung, it’s time to get serious about SPF! This antioxidant-enriched, tinted sunscreen offers the perfect combination of broad-spectrum sun protection, color and moisture – all in one! Plus, this multi-tasker has all the benefits of Vitamins D, E and antioxidants such as Green Tea.
You won’t feel like you’re wearing a mask of makeup thanks to its light consistency, but you’ll still be able to even out your skin tone…perfect for everyday wear! The best part is that it’s available in 4 different shades of Light, Medium, Dark, and Ebony to compliment any skin type and ethnicity. It’s also water-resistant (80 minutes).
When we think of aging, we don’t necessarily think of our lips right away. But the truth is lips are one of the first places to show signs of aging, especially with increased exposure to the sun. Protect & perfect your pout with this does-it-all lip conditioner that delivers natural sun protection (with non-nano zinc oxide), soothing hydration and a sheer pop of color in one swipe!
Enriched with a blend of antioxidant-rich organic oils plus shea and cocoa butter to soften dry lips, the lip color looks bold in the tube but goes on gorgeously sheer. My favorite is Bombora, a sheer rosy-red hue that looks as fresh as flattering on all skin tones.
This is the high-level sunscreen lotion for those who hate how most sunscreen formulas feel. It’s great for all skin types, even for combination to oily, acne-prone skin (like mine!). With 15% Zinc Oxide and 7.5% Octinoxate for complete broad-spectrum protection, the ultra-light lotion applies smoothly with a cashmere matte finish and leaves absolutely NO tell-tale white cast at all (despite a high percentage of zinc oxide!)
It provides just the right amount of hydration without any greasiness, so you won’t need an additional moisturizer and it also layers easily under makeup…perfect for everyday use.
