Now that spring is finally here, it’s time for a beauty refresher.
Come winter time, we pile on the moisturizer to keep skin from drying out in harsh winter weather. Now that we don’t have to worry, it’s time to switch to something lighter. Serums have the same moisturizing effects, and absorb quickly into the skin. Many have other benefits like redness-correcting or anti-aging formulas. Try Yves Saint Laurent Forever Youth Leberator Serem, a more expensive serum that promises youthful skin using new technology. THe formula mimicks glycans, which surround skin cells and allow them to communicate, releasing substances that encourage cel turnover and a dwy spring look.
Another spring staple to lighten up your beauty regime is tinted moisturizer. This offers lighter coverage and keeps the skin hydrated. The added bonus is most tinted moisturizers have SPF to protect your skin now the the sun is out. Nars Pur Radiant Tinted Moisturizer offers sheer coverage, while doubling as a skin brightener, and ingrediants such as kopara that encourages cell renewal for fresh, youthful looking skin.
Trade your heavy lipsticks, lip stains and sticky glosses for tinted lip balms this spring. The lighter colours offer just enough pigment to be noticeable, but not enough to weigh you down, or melt off your face, midway through the day. The L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Balm offers hydrating colour and and added bonus of SPF 15 to protect your lips from the sun’s harsh rays, while you enjoy your time outside.
With skin-baring skirts and crop tops on trend for spring, exfoliation is key. To make sure your skin looks soft, smooth and youthful, invest in an exfolitator to get your skin in shape. Try Cake Beauty’s Desserted Island Smoothing Brown Sugar Body Scrub. The paraben-free formula is ade with coconut oil, brown sugar and cocoa butter, to leave your skin soft and smelling like your favourite desserts.
