Spring forward with a skin care routine that reflects the change of season. Switching your skin care and beauty products for spring can not only be beneficial to your complexion, it can also help with some side effects of allergy season — we see you, puffy eyes — too.
Take a look at some of the best beauty products to use March through June, ahead.
No skin care routine is complete without a stellar face wash and The Créme Shop 2-in-1 Facial Foam Cleanser Rose Water + Pomegranate + Lotus Flower is our go-to for spring. Swapping out your winter skin cleanser for something that can balance — a saving grace during allergy season — soothe, and even the skin tone, can result in a softer, more supple-looking complexion.
Shed your winter skin with Yon-Ka Guarana Scrub. Exfoliating the skin once a week can not only help change the texture of your complexion, it can result in a more even-looking skin tone, too. Formulated with powerful ingredients like Amazonian guarana seeds, natural caffeine, and rice bran powder, the exfoliating formula works to slough off dry skin, stimulate the skin, and buff away pore-clogging debris.
Springtime means more time outside and more time outside means environmental aggressors like the sun and pollution — both of which are rich in damaging free radicals. Protect your complexion with an antioxidant-rich facial serum like Skin & Lab’s Red Serum. Formulated with superfruit ingredients like blueberry, acai, raspberry, and pomegranate, the Red Serum can help protect the skin from sun damage, fade the look of dark spots, and smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
With allergy season comes dreaded puffy eyes. Luckily, EmerginC has you covered with their Scientific Organics Eyelight Cream. Formulated with watermelon rinds, grape stem cells, rosehip oil, and other nourishing ingredients, the Eyelight Cream can reduce the look of puffy eyes and under-eye circles by hydrating and brightening the eye contour.
Spring clean your complexion with Skin & Lab Glacial Clay Facial Mask. Enriched with Canadian glacial clay, bentonite clay, and kaolin clay, along with tea tree oil, the deep-cleaning face mask works like a magnet to draw out impurities, minimize pores, reduce inflammation, and reveal a brighter, more clarified complexion.
Swap your body wash out for something more sensitive — and vagina-friendly — like The Honey Pot Company Sensitive Wash. Formulated with all-natural ingredients that work together to banish odor-causing bacteria, balance your body’s natural pH level, and moisturize the skin in a way that softens and nourishes like you’ve never experienced before.
Sandal season is upon us and you know what that means. It’s time to get serious about the skin on your soles. After being in boots all winter long, your heels could use a pick-me-up and Yu-Be’s Heel & Elbow Moisturizing Socks can help you put your best foot forward.
Dry skin doesn’t end with the last snow. If you experience dry, itchy skin on your hands, Farmaesthetics Hand to Heel Softening Salve is just what you need to soften and nourish your mitts. Formulated with a powerful combination of beeswax and calendula, the softening skin salve works to deeply nourish the skin, lock in moisture, soothe inflammation, and rejuvenate.
After hiding under a puffer coat and wool sweaters all winter, the skin on your body can seriously benefit from some hydration. Enter: Yu-Be Moisturizing Body Lotion. Enriched with vitamin E and B2, the multi-purpose moisturizer can provide the skin with a burst of hydration, soothe itch and irritation, and help revive the overall texture of body skin.
