Winter in North America was a tough one this year. With the incredible dryness and constant fluctuations in temperature, the weather was a rollercoaster for our skin (and not the fun kind). Thankfully, warm weather is finally right around the corner. Spring is the perfect time to treat our dull and devitalized skin to a fresh new glow.
Here are a few of my favourite products to nourish and repair weather-worn complexions:
Tata Harper is a “pioneer” to luxury natural skincare. 100% of the ingredients are of natural or botanical origin, 70% of which is certified organic. The Tata Harper Rebuilding Moisturizer is a must-have for those with oily or combination skin types, as it is mattifying and non-greasy. It hydrates with hyaluronic acid, helping minimize the appearance of wrinkles, so the formula is ideal for aging skin or anyone looking for an extra moisture boost.
This luscious eye cream has a whipped texture that melts into skin to nourish and protect the delicate eye area. It is made by whipping botanically-infused oils (jojoba, tamanu, shea, borage, and avocado) with aloe vera, rose water, and select plant essences. This cream is luxurious and indulgent for the delicate skin around the eyes (or the entire face) and easily worn under makeup. May also be incorporated into a nighttime routine to reduce the appearance of fine lines and dark circles. From irritation and puffiness to dehydration and fine lines, this multi-tasking product covers all the bases.
Lük is built upon the beauty of food. They believe that the products you put on your body should be just as safe and nutritious as what you eat. They’ve formulated an exquisite line of lipsticks from active botanical ingredients. When you can’t choose between lipstick or lip balm, Lük Lip Nourish is the best of both worlds. Expect this lipstick to feed your inner confidence and outward fresh-faced sparkle; Lük believes in highlighting— not hiding— your natural beauty. Available in a wide range of sheer colour washes, this incredibly hydrating formula leaves your lips looking naturally rosy and feeling kissably soft.
Sunshine for your skin! This formula is remarkably unique: roses, sandalwood, frankincense, immortelle, and other delicious skin-rejuvenating botanicals blend with a daily dose of topical vitamin D3. This SunDew crème enlivens dull, winter-worn skin with a perfectly hydrated, radiant glow.
Spring is all about renewal and revitalization. It’s time to shed the winter hibernation layers and get hydrated!
