Spring is finally here, and after months stuck inside, everyone could use a little sun. And not just sun, but a chance to try out these incredible spring beauty products to effortlessly transition into warmer days. Quarantine means that spring may be a little different this year, but it’s still important to transition your skincare routine from heavy moisturizers for winter to lightweight cleansers and sweet serums for ultimate spring beauty. Oh and rose water, lots of rose water.
But not all skin is created equal... and there’s no greater heartbreak than buying a brand new moisturizer only to discover that it makes you break out. That’s why we’ve rounded up the best spring beauty products on MIRA BEAUTY to help each skin type look springtime fresh and radiant this season.
Spring is the time to stop and smell the roses. Literally, because they’re on your face. You’ll never want to stop using this Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Mist. Not only does it have a soft, light, and flowery smell - it’s made with rosewater to soothe the appearance of dry patches and redness on your face, along with hibiscus flower extract and hyaluronic acid to provide a burst of hydration. You can wear this spray on its own or as a setting spray over makeup.
Many skincare experts recommend switching to gel moisturizers during spring, and Moisture Surge is one of the best for dry skin. It also shows that beauty is a science, as this gel is formulated with Auto-Replenishing Technology with Caffeine to support your skin’s own rehydration system. This means that skin creates its own internal water source, and stays hydrated for up to 72 hours after washing your face - hence the name. Moisture Surge also contains hyaluronic acid and aloe water to deeply hydrate and plump the skin while giving you that dewy glow that’s perfect for spring.
Sure, you may be going bare-faced more often this spring while still in quarantine (as you should)... but sometimes you want to play with makeup or look pretty for a Zoom call. This affordable foundation provides long-lasting, full coverage without being too harsh on your skin, and contains SPF 20 protection to protect from harmful UV light even while inside.
If you’ve ever seen one of Demi Lovato’s makeup-free selfies and felt envy over her literally flawless skin (who hasn’t?), you should know that this is one of her favorite products. The singer has talked about her love of the AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser for years, and it’s the ideal spring beauty product for those with oily skin. It contains three exfoliating agents - salicylic acid, lactic acid, and glycolic acid - to buff away dead skin and buildup under the surface, while working to regulate oil production and prevent breakouts. Seriously, it’s one of the top products on MIRA for clear, acne-free skin - and as Demi once sang, what’s wrong with being confident?
Some are under the wrong impression that oily skin doesn't need moisturizer. Um, no. Especially in spring, when your skin is still producing excess oil to deal with winter dullness and dryness. You just need a product that hydrates your face this season and makes your skin glowing, not greasy - like Active Moist by Dermalogica. Even though we all know somebody who hates the word “moist,” this lightweight, oil-free cream regulates your skin’s oil production and soaks into the skin to minimize the appearance of pores, making them not as obvious while wearing lighter face makeup this spring. This cream also contains plant extracts and silk amino acids to deeply hydrate oily skin and smooth texture.
Clay masks are a miracle for anybody with oily skin, and this one by innisfree is no exception. The Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask is packed with Jeju Volcanic Clusters, actual volcanic lava to absorb excess oil within the skin, and lactic acid to gently exfoliate skin and get all the junk out. Many community reviews reference the incredible sensation of wearing this mask and actually feeling pores getting unclogged, while a few even mention using this mask with their boyfriend. As men typically have thicker skin and are more prone to blackheads, you know that clay is seriously effective.
Combination is probably the most moody of all skin types, and it can be tough to find a moisturizer with all the right ingredients that don’t irritate your face. But this moisturizer by drunk elephant won’t throw off your skin’s delicate balance. The lightweight texture makes it perfect for your spring beauty routine, while the blend of natural ingredients and clean actives means that your skin will be smooth, hydrated, and blemish-free… all without the irritation and heartbreak. It’s basically a protein smoothie for your face.
“Smells nice, feels refreshing, and works great to get any residue left from cleanser or makeup. Perfect for my combination skin!” This review says it all about this cleansing lotion from Mario Badescu - enhanced with witch hazel to reduce acne and irritation from oiliness, and aloe vera and bladderwrack extract to hydrate for a flawless complexion. Seaweed Cleansing Lotion is perfect for giving combination skin a fresh sense of renewal for spring beauty.
But really, this product lives up to its name. It’s part foundation, part moisturizer - as the lightweight, oil-free formula feels weightless on your skin while giving you a natural, dewy glow for spring beauty. It’s also enriched with moringa seed and hyaluronic acid to keep skin hydrated while SPF 23 protects from the sun’s rays. Combination skin is more frequently up against environmental factors and free radical damage, so if you’re wondering if you really need SPF in your spring beauty routine… yes, you definitely do.
Everything is more beautiful in rose gold, and that includes your skincare products. This cleanser is made with gentle ingredients like rose water and colloidal gold to soothe your sensitive skin, removing oil and excess dirt without overdrying for the perfect balance. Bliss also carries a peel, toner mist, and moisturizer for sensitive skin if you want to really radiate in rose gold this spring.
The sensitive skin struggle is real, but it doesn’t have to be with this serum. Hyaluronic acid and glycolipids hydrate your skin, without clogging your pores and causing acne, while other natural ingredients eliminate redness and irritation for a clean, refreshed complexion. You can’t ask for much more in a serum for sensitive skin.
We know what you’re thinking. If you had a dollar for every time the words “rose” or “rose water” were used in skincare, you could buy every item on this list. But it’s seriously an amazing ingredient. This 3-in-1 moisturizer is made with 96% natural ingredients to soothe the skin and leave your face feeling fresh, soft, and hydrated. Use it as a day moisturizer, nighttime product, or face mask to soak in every natural ingredient and leave your sensitive skin feeling rosey this season.
