Spring Beauty Switches
Can you feel it in the air? Spring is just around the corner, and that means that icy temps—along with the dry, chapped skin that arrives with it—are coming to an end. While oils and heavy creams have been a non-negotiable in our beauty routine in recent months, warmer weather means we can lighten things up a little. Switch up your skincare for spring and watch your complexion blossom, with products available at Simon.
Here Comes The Sun
No question about it, SPF is the single most important step in your skincare routine, come rain, hail, or (most definitely!) sunshine. Not only do you need to wear it every day, you’re also supposed to reapply every 2-3 hours. We know, we know—when you’ve got a full face of makeup and a packed schedule, reapplying is not always realistic. Enter Supergoop’s innovative Setting Spray. Formulated with SPF 50, it’s the perfect way to top up during the day. Just spritz it over your makeup to refresh your look and your sun protection.
Strip Your Layers
Exfoliation is the best way to whisk away any dry patches and dullness leftover from winter. Start fresh for the season ahead and get glowing skin with products containing acids—we’re talking AHAs, BHAs, and glycolics. Drunk Elephant’s T.L.C .Baby Facial is a beauty editor favorite for resurfacing the skin and restoring a youthful glow.
Ready For This Jelly?
Now that it’s warming up, you can trade your oil cleansers for something more lightweight. Jelly cleansers are having a serious moment in the beauty world and for good reason: they gently melt away makeup, dirt, and impurities without stripping the skin. Our pick? Origins Original Skin Makeup Removing Jelly with Willowherb.
Chapped lips and winter go hand-in-hand. Get your pout back to perfect with a nourishing and exfoliating lip scrub. Fresh’s Sugar Lip Polish gently buffs away dry, flaky skin and gives your lips a nourishing boost of moisture sure to make them ready for some summer lovin’.
Water Your Skin
Low humidity and icy air wreak havoc on your skin’s hydration levels. Treat parched, post-winter skin to a big drink of hyaluronic acid—a hydrating superhero that holds over 1,000 times its weight in water. Glow Recipe’s Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask will feed your skin while you sleep, so you wake up positively radiant!
Get Your Glow On
If tanning beds and sunbathing aren’t your thing, (please refer back to point number one—we all agree that baking is not an option!) let’s look at the alternatives. James Reed, the tan man behind the best bronzed bods in the industry (Rosie Huntington Whiteley, among others), has developed an innovative H2O tan mist. Just spritz it on first as a primer or use it as a setting spray and watch as it builds to a natural glow, sans UV. It smells good, too!
Go Out On Your Limbs
Don’t forget your bod—it’s been ravaged by winter too. Get your legs ready for skirt weather with a body polish. Herbivore’s all-natural Coco Rose Coconut Oil Body Polish will leave your limbs soft, smooth, and ready to bare.
