Spring means bouncy hair, pretty pastel makeup and glowy skin. But how do you get that, especially when you’ve been subject to nothing but the cold for the last few months? Our ultimate guide to spring beauty prep is the answer.
Revive Your Locks
Hair that’s dry and thirsty from the winter cold longs for moisture. Treat it to the new Living Proof Night Cap Overnight Perfector, an easy-to-use leave-in treatment that goes to work while you go to sleep. Not only does it make dull hair shiny and enhance your color, but the results last through five shampoos. $28, livingproof.com
There are certain parts of the body that can make you look older, like your neck. Before you stash away the turtlenecks and scarves, start using a neck cream on a regular basis. Jan Marini Marini Juveneck works to soften the look of lines, wrinkles and creases so your neck looks firmer, younger and just better. $85, janmarini.com
Spring cheeks are all about a pop of color that’s bright, but not too bright and pigmented, yet sheer so your skin can show through. So Susan Cheek Jelly delivers just that—sheer color that’s buildable so you can never overdo it. And, you can wear it on your lips as well. $15, sosusan.com
Now’s the time to erase any spots and discoloration on your skin. In fact, the more sun your skin is exposed to, the darker your spots can become. It’s important to use a product with retinol, like Le Metier de Beaute Peau Visage Dark Spot Corrector, which won’t irritate the skin. $125, neimanmarcus.com
