Spring brings freshness in our gardens, kitchens and bathroom counters. As warmer weather brings clearer skies and more time outdoors, it’s a good indicator to transition out of your winter skincare regimen and start using products that support sun protection and skin brightening.
At Soon Skincare, we bring spring into our regimen with delicious ingredients. Berries, botanicals and citrus have great skin benefits and incorporate a hint of freshness to your regimen.
Smooth with strawberry
Rich in antioxidants and vitamin C, strawberry is an excellent supporting ingredient in restorative anti-aging formulas. Antioxidants protect against environmental damage often caused by sun exposure. Antioxidants also fight the breakdown of collagen, the important protein that keeps your skin looking plump and smooth (and starts naturally diminishing in your late 20s!). We love anything that supports natural collagen production.
Since the warmer season begs for a pretty pucker, we include this sweet ingredient in our Strawberry Lip Masks with Collagen that instantly plump and hydrate lips.
Brighten with blueberry
Blueberries are more than just a fruity addition to your Sunday morning pancake breakfast. These mini berries are highly concentrated with vitamin A, which improves skin tone and texture. Blueberry’s antioxidant properties help brighten the skin and defend against environmental damage while its mild acidity provides gentle exfoliation that’s great for delicate areas.
With longer, sunnier days, this time of year is a great time to add blueberries into your routine. Try them in the Hydrating Blueberry Hydrogel Eye Patch, formulated to reduce dark circles.
Refresh with peony root extract
This botanical ingredient not only adds a pleasant, natural fragrance but is also a potent antioxidant, that moisturizes and aids in skin regeneration. Peony contains the antibacterial and anti-inflammatory compound paeonol that supports overall skin health.
Warmer temps come with more time outside barefoot. Give your feet a refresh with our Peony Foot Mask and say goodbye to dry cracked heels.
