Spring is right around the corner, and with it comes warmer weather… finally! I could not be more excited to start putting my winter layers away, even though living in Atlanta give me a lot less to complain about!
Whenever the seasons change, I also switch up my beauty and skin care routine to start re-introducing products that will keep my skin protected from the sun, while boosting that warm weather glow we all know and love, that puts us in the best mood all season long.
Today, I’m sharing my five favorite warm weather beauty and skin care products that I’ve already started using to prep my skin for the sunshine… to be honest, some of these products are ones that I really should be using year-round, and now that I’m freshly topped off on all of them, I might just do that!
Supergoop! Invincible Setting Powder
You should be applying SPF all year round, but if you’re not, this is a good start. Not only is Invincible Setting Powder by Supergoop! SPF 45 for maximum UV protection, the 100% mineral-based powder also comes in four shades (including a translucent one for every color) and it’s the perfect pocket-sized product to take with you while you’re on the go to keep your T-zone looking fresh all day long.
If you’re using this product, make sure you start with an SPF base too! I love this sunscreen, also by Supergoop!, because it goes on totally clear and doesn’t leave that weird blueish cast that most other sunscreen products tend to do.

Kiehl’s Apothecary Preparations
Taking personalized skin care to a whole new level is Kiehl’s Apothecary Preparations, a service that’s exclusively available at their in-store locations. Mixing new-age technology with their heritage apothecary processes, a skin care consultant creates a personalized serum that targets your specific skin care problem areas to product a solution that’s JUST for you!
I recently popped into Kiehl’s to get my own Apothecary Preparation, and I really have been loving it so far! The super-concentrated formula is potent without being too harsh on my skin and it’s just the perfect product to add into my skincare arsenal.
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri
In an effort to be more conscious about the products I use on my body, I recently gave up on my biweekly gel nail appointments in favor of going au naturale, or rocking a simple nail polish. The thing about regular nail-polishes that sucks though? I hardly ever have the time or patience to wait for them to dry anymore! I think my nail salon’s quick-dry gels and powders have spoiled me.
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri nailpolish has been a lifesaver for my impatient self, with its chip resistant formula that dries on my nails in minutes! It’s the perfect nail-polish product for the girl on the go.
If you missed it, you need to check out the video project I shot with Sally Hansen – it just went live a couple days ago!

Beauty Counter Dew Skin
I have my friend Anna to thank for introducing me to Beauty Counter’s Dew Skin Moisturizer a couple weeks ago — it’s a tinted moisturizer that does exactly what the product name says, leaving you with a dewy finish for that perfect no-makeup make up look!
In addition to its gorgeous finish, the thing that stands out to me about the Beauty Counter brand is their dedication to clean beauty… products that are free of the harmful chemicals and ingredients that may have long-term negative effects that we may not even be aware of! It’s just as important to know what what you’re putting in your body as it is to know what you’re putting on it, and I think that Beauty Counter is definitely a beauty brand to watch out for!
Tula Illuminating Face Serum
We’ve heard of probiotics in our yogurt to help with digestion, but Tula is changing the game by incorporating probiotics into our skin care routines too! Why, you may ask — well using the same properties that create balance on our insides, probiotics also promote the our skin’s natural balance, locking in moisture to leave your complexion hydrated, fresh and even-toned.
I’ve been loving the Illuminating Face Serum; its chock-full of Vitamin E and probiotics, and the light formula makes it a great product to bring into my Spring and Summer skincare regimens. [/two_third][one_sixth_last] [/one_sixth_last]
