Warmer weather is on its way and that means that for the best skin and hair, it’s time to shake up your beauty routine. Luckily, we’ve got the products (and the experts) to help you make the most of spring and summer. Aveda Makeup Pure-Fessional Anne Skubis can show you how to glow and look gorgeous all spring and summer long.
First up: skincare! Anne’s number one product pick is, of course, Daily Light Guard SPF 30. (She lives in Arizona, so SPF is always a priority.) Daily Light Guard is a lightweight, blendable, 100% mineral-derived sunscreen AND a plant-derived pollution defence, suitable for all skin types. It keeps your skin protected from UVA/UVB rays, and Anne also thinks it makes a great makeup primer!
Cleaning out your beauty cabinet and swapping winter products for summer ones doesn’t need to be a chore — have fun with it! “In winter, when the heat is on full blast, I grab the Tulasāra Renew Morning Crème to make up for any moisture deficiency I experience,” Anne says. Once the heat is off, she reaches for Botanical Kinetics Intense Hydrating Soft Crème, a plant-powered crème that doesn’t feel heavy or sticky. “I love using the Botanical Kinetics All-Sensitive Cleanser year-round, but when the seasons' change and my allergies act up, I find that I need it even more.” To treat your skin, try Tulasāra Calm Concentrate. Its springy aroma of oman chamomile, clary sage and neroli will get you in the right seasonal headspace.
Another option? Visit one of our Aveda stores for a FREE spring mini-facial. This complimentary service will wake up your skin and bring back your glow using products chosen for your specific skincare concerns. You can book a spot online or simply walk in!
If you only purchase one beauty product for spring and summer, Anne recommends a lip liner and lipstick pairing. “When spring comes, we often change our hair colour, even if subtly. With a change in hair colour comes the opportunity to change up makeup and try something different,” she says. “I like to wear deep crimson reds like Feed My Lips lipstick in Chili in fall and winter and change to bright apple reds in the spring and summer — I like Jujube and Cana. I do the same with the eye shadow colours, switching from deep jewel tones like the Plum Mist trio to bright, fresh colours like Aqua Pearl and Earth Rose.”
Give in to the temptation to go a little lighter and brighter with nature-inspired rose pink and orange tones that mimic the colours of a summertime sunset. If pink is your favourite colour, try Feed My Lips lipstick in juicy Guava or Prickly Pear. They look gorgeous with a summer glow and even better with an iced tea or a glass of rosé. Just saying.
