Spring into Fresh Ingredients

Spring into Fresh Ingredients

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. 


Protect with orange

Orange may be the most well known source of antioxidants L-ascorbic acid and citric acid and for good reason. L-ascorbic acid, the purest form of vitamin C, is a powerful defense against sun damage, blue light and pollution. Citric acid is an effective skin brightener and natural exfoliant that helps slough dead skin cells away so they don’t clog pores. 

Make this kitchen staple a new must-have in your skincare regimen. Try L-ascorbic acid in Phoenix 15% Vitamin C + E Serum formulated to counteract the effects of environmental damage.

Lip Masking 101

Lip Masking 101

Dry, cracked lips are never fun, but a lip mask? That is our idea of fun. Our lip masks are a Korean skincare favorite, using lightweight, comfortable hydrogel infused with the lip-loving ingredients aloe and allantoin that improve moisture retention all day and all night. 

Our Strawberry Lip Masks with Collagen also have, you guessed it, strawberry to reduce dark spots and wrinkles, and give your lips a dose of vitamin C. Strawberry is rich in antioxidants which help fight free radicals. (Remember those?) An added boost of marine collagen helps plump the skin and has long-term anti-aging benefits. 

The Hydrating Watermelon Lip Masks use watermelon, which not only hydrates the skin but also helps seal moisture in for long-lasting hydration. The addition of niacinamide increases cell turnover, an essential process for anti-aging. Lip masks are good for all skin types, so you can’t go wrong with these K-skincare products. 

So, when do you use a lip mask? Try it: 

  • In the morning. Ever heard the advice to drink 8 oz. of water upon waking to replenish your body’s hydration? Your lips (and the rest of your skin!) need the same attention. After cleansing your face, apply a lip mask and restore any loss of moisture during your good night’s sleep. 
  • Right before bed. Air is typically cooler and drier overnight which can lead to dry, cracked lips in the morning. Giving your skin an extra boost of hydration before bed should reduce any discomfort during the night and in the morning. 
  • In the bath. While you soak, the heat from the water should help open up your pores and allow for better absorption of hydrating and anti-aging ingredients. Apply your lip mask, sit back and relax.
  • Before an event. Incorporate a lip mask into your prep process for a date night, party or any other special outing. Your lip products will apply better and last longer on smooth, hydrated lips.
