The harsh winds of winter are but a distant memory. You’ve ditched the scarves and mittens, and your spring wardrobe has come out of hibernation. How’s your skincare regime shaping up?
It’s not unusual for your complexion to crave the same amount of hydration, but which are the lotions, serums and creams that pack a punch with actives, yet don’t stay sticky all day?
Your first port of call is a gentle exfoliant to slough off dead winter skin on your face and body. If you’re prone to irritation, then opt for chemical over physical. We tend to feel more dull after winter, so adding brightening products is a boon. Guerlain has already introduced a new radiance duo as part of its lauded Orchidée Impériale line, including The Radiance Concentrate and The Radiance Eye Serum which combat environmental aggressors and specifically target hypoxia or oxygen deficiency. Sisley’s Black Rose Collection also offers an Eye Contour Fluid which brightens, smoothes and depuffs.
Finishing with a cream that is lighter than your winter one is essential to lock in hydration while allowing skin to breathe. We love Estée Lauder’s Revitalizing Supreme+ Global Anti-Aging Power Soft Creme, a firming formula that’s easily absorbed and infused with moringa extract to stimulate collagen production. A secret plus? The Asia release contains extra antioxidants and anti-irritants to protect against environmental damage, whether that be from the sun or blue light from screens.
A final addition to your spring ritual, the NuFACE FIX is a five-minute facelift device that works from the neck up. The limited edition blush tool brings a hint of springtime to your bathroom counter or your purse – yes, it’s small enough to travel with you.
