Spring Glow

Spring Glow-LIFE SMART by Carrie Dorr

By Kathryn Dickinson

Spring is at our fingertips and here at AILLEA weโ€™re already dreaming of reclaiming our vibrant skin and achieving that bright and dewy spring glow. But shaking off the dry dull skin of winter is both an inside and outside job! These are the steps that we take to revive and recharge our skin.

Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides, $43

Collagen is amazing for improving the health of hair, skin, nails, joints, ligaments and tendons. This version is odorless and dissolves beautifully in hot or cold liquids. We personally love to add it into our morning smoothie along with some of Moon Juice's Sex for a collagen-packed adaptogenic treat.

Kypris Deep Forest Clay Mask, $88

Cleansing clay, oceanic salt, soothing algae, botanical exfoliants, medicinal trees, roots, leaves and flowers work together to detoxify, smooth and soften the skin. We love this mask because it not only detoxes, it also brightens and hydrates, which is a perfect combination for skin that needs a refresh after dealing with the harsh winter elements. It's pretty much everything you want in a mask.

Ilia True Skin Serum Foundation, $54

This newly released serum-infused foundation has quickly become an AILLEA favorite. It offers equal parts skincare and color correction while also delivering buildable medium coverage with a silky finish. It's bound to be a staple in your makeup bag.

Naturopathica Vitamin C15 Wrinkle Repair Serum, $38

Vitamin C is crucial to any skincare routine all year round, but it's especially important now that sunnier weather is on the way. It's amazing antioxidant properties protect the skin from the sun's UVA and UVB rays. It's also extremely anti-inflammatory and works to actively stimulate collagen production to improve skin tone and texture.

Kjaer Weis Cream Blush, $56

A beautiful, dewy flush is at your fingertips with this blush. Castor seed oil, rose, jojoba and gardenia impart skin strengthening, hydrating, and antioxidant properties to boot.

BKR Water Bottle, $38

These glass water bottles are the cutest way to stay hydrated this spring. We personally love to fill ours with iced green tea or water with fresh mint, lemons and limes.
