Not only is Spring a good time to restore whatever damage the colder months did to your skin and hair, but it’s also the season by definition to try new trends. From popsicle-stained lips to products that will make you glow from the inside out, here are the 7 beauty products you need to try this spring.
All these foundations are light, oil-free and they offer a natural moisture barrier while working to control shine throughout the day.
