best of spring beauty April is over and spring is well underway. And that means your beauty regimen is in transition mode. (Are your legs ready for shorts?) To help you move from snow to sun, I've collected seven top beauty finds for the coming season. #1 Redken Nature’s Rescue Refining Sea Polish Our beauty bloggers love to remind you how important it is to exfoliate your skin, but it’s equally as important for your hair to receive the same treatment. The pumice in Redken’s polish deep cleans, leaving strands soft and shiny. What’s not to love? #2 YSL Rouge Pur Couture Golden Luster in Fuchsia Symbole Dark lips may be taking a brief hiatus, but that doesn’t mean you should be taking one from lip color. I'm loving the bright fuchsias and violets of spring, especially this shade from YSL, which goes on smooth and has just a hint of shimmer. Bright lips aren’t your thing? Dare you to be adventurous. #3 Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50+ Although you were wearing sunscreen all winter (you were, right?), it’s time to up your SPF and grab a lotion that protects against all the elements. While SPF 50 may seem high, it’s sure to keep your skin safe from burns, whether you’re enjoying a run in the park or day at the beach splashing in the surf. And who doesn’t like a product that reverses signs of aging? #4 Lancome Exfoliant Fraîchelle The transition from winter to spring can be rough on your skin. Whether you’re battling leftover dry patches or trying to transform your skin from dull to radiant, it’s important to have a good exfoliator on hand. I love this product by Lancome, which has a refreshing floral scent and is packed with vitamins and essential fatty acids. #5 Matrix Design Pulse Mega Dust Dry shampoo was one of the best-kept secrets of healthy hair, but has recently taken the main stage. Why I love it: it saves your hair from daily shampooing and gives a voluminous boost when strands are falling flat. This mega dust is lightweight, which works on any hair texture. I also love the smell! #6 Essie Nail Polish in Orange, It’s Obvious Orange is everywhere. But sadly, it can be a hard shade to work with. Orange nails, however, work on everyone—all you have to do is swipe it on. This Essie shade is vibrant, but not too bright. Give it a try! #7 Flowerbomb Eau De Parfum by Viktor & Rolf We all swear by a signature scent, but why not switch it up? Floral scents are energizing and refreshing, which, believe it or not, can do more for your day than a cup of coffee. Don’t want to splurge on something new? Ask for samples at a department store. Trust me, you’ll get hooked.
