JESS’S SPRING ESSENTIALS FOR SKIN RENEWAL AND BRIGHTENING

After a long New York winter, my skin is desperate for some exfoliation, brightening, and hydration. While winter is all about defending from the elements and cocooning skin, spring is about renewal and re-emerging. The sun is coming out, and I am beyond ready for it. 

My spring routine is full of old and new favorites that make me feel fresh and glowy. I’m reaching for products that focus on cell turnover, radiance, and replenishment, without feeling too heavy. Check out my picks below to give your routine a seasonal reboot.

CLEANSE: Lernberger Stafsing Gel Cleanser
“My skin is sensitive and dry, but as it gets warmer I like something lightweight, yet nonstripping and gentle. I only cleanse in the evening—unless I drank the night before and didn't wash my face! You can also cleanse in the morning if you slept in any actives that might make you photosensitive like AHAs or retinol.”

TONE: Irene Forte Helichrysum Hyaluronic Toner

“This toner is my jam! It is miraculous at getting rid of winter flakies. It has a Helichrysum Water that brightens, but doesn’t irritate, and hydrating hyaluronic acid and citric acid.”

AM SERUM: Dr. Barbara Sturm Better B Serum
“I’m addicted to anything with niacinamide in it, and this formula is amazing. I just love the way it hydrates my skin, doesn’t clog my pores, and evens out my texture and my tone. It corrects all your issues.” 

Dr. Barbara Sturm Better B Serum


AM MOISTURE: Spectacle Performance Crème
“This is a low-maintenance all-in-one cream that’s super hydrating without being thick or tacky. The tube makes it great for travel, and it does wonders for my redness and sensitivity.”

NIGHT SERUM: Vintner's Daughter Active Treatment Essence

“This serum is the gold standard for anti-aging. This formula is perfect because it also has fatty acids, nourishing omegas, and antioxidants.”

PM MOISTURE: Ignae Night Rich Serum
“I can’t get enough of this oil! It has the nicest texture and absorbs well…but the proof I’m obsessed with it is that I’ve already been through a bottle and a half! I tried to share it with a friend and she was like, ‘Ummm, this is empty.’ I’ve been wearing it on top of my retinol while I sleep and it’s like an overnight facial. I was so excited when I discovered Ignae, it’s now exclusive to SHEN.”
