As much as we love a glitter-infused powder highlighter or a golden-lava-like liquid illuminator, there’s no more satisfying glow than the one that starts skin-deep. Being the tried-and-true glow-getters that we are, we know that constant hydration is key to maintaining a natural, dewy sheen.
Which is why we rounded up the latest nourishing skin-care products (for all aspects of your routine) that’ll transform your skin to its silkiest, softest state this spring. From the lightweight, quick-absorbing cream from Weleda that lends enviable luminosity all day long to a whipped body butter that’s ideal for slathering on before slipping under fresh sheets, there’s no shortage of ways to show your skin some love this season. See for yourself, just ahead.

This on-the-go elixir will challenge any ideas you might have about oil being a winter-only necessity. Packed with a team of oils so powerful they deserve their own superhero movie (think: skin-protecting raspberry seed, moisture-locking castor seed, and elasticity-promoting evening primrose), the silky formula still manages to feel fresh, light, and breathable. Mix a few drops into your foundation for the ultimate glow potion, or dab it onto cheekbones over makeup for a natural, dewy highlight. The easy-to-use dropper means no threat of accidental spillage, either.

There’s no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to dry skin, but in the wake of a warmer season, we generally like to switch things up from heavier, blanket-like creams to lighter, more refreshing formulas. That’s why we’re amped about the latest fast-absorbing version of Weleda’s cult-favorite Skin Food Original Cream, a product universally loved among skin-care junkies and casual consumers alike. Coming from the holistic brand that promotes nurturing all aspects of your life, this chamomile-, calendula-, and pansy-packed cream has the same calming, feel-good effect as a giant mug of herbal tea at the end of a particularly long day. Supple, smooth skin, ahead!

It’s common knowledge that the tissue below your eyes is fairly delicate, so it requires a little extra love from a skin-care step. (It’s for sure a water sign.) We like to spoil this sensitive area, then, with super-hydrating eye masks, like these cactus water and hibiscus hydrogel ones from St. Ives. In a quick 10 minutes, the invigorating mask delivers the kind of moisture your skin will drink right up for an instantly brightened boost. (Pro tip: Keep them in the fridge for an extra-cool sensation in the a.m.) And don’t hold back when stocking up — for less than $3 a pack, your fridge could be full of ’em.

This drugstore cleansing balm is here to prove that that tight, stripped feeling post face cleanse is purely optional, people. As soon as you apply the makeup remover directly onto dry skin, it transforms from a solid balm into a silky oil, melting away even the most stubborn of long-lasting mascara traces, while simultaneously infusing much-needed moisture back into your pores. And with no harsh rubbing required, it’s super gentle on your skin’s surface. The whole experience is, simply put, lovely.

Skin is our body’s largest organ, but we have this funny tendency to favor our faces over everything else when it comes to our beauty routines. (Guilty.) This luxurious, moisture-quenching body butter from Weleda, though, will make head-to-toe lotioning your new favorite step in your self-care ritual. The light-as-air, whipped texture glides right onto skin like room-temperature butter, and the hydrating formula (rich in shea and cocoa seed butter) leaves you with a fresh, silky feeling that never goes greasy. We highly suggest applying it post shower to lock in moisture before sliding into fresh, clean sheets. (A true luxury, if we do say so ourselves.)

Infused with soothing saffron flower extract, this ultra-replenishing cream is a year-round remedy for dry skin concerns. And — no shade to our tiny NYC apartment bathrooms — the spring-fresh scent teleports us straight to a field of endless flowers in the Côte d’Azur. We like to apply it right before bed for the sweetest dreams of supple, soft skin as we drift off to sleep.
Sisley The Velvet Nourishing Cream, $220, available at Nordstrom
Caviar as an appetizer is divisive. Caviar as a skin-care ingredient , however, is a no-brainer. We have this luxe, firming emulsion to thank for this way of thinking, which has significantly upped our glow game ever since adding it to our skin-care routines. (Not to mention, it makes us feel fancy AF.) Formulated with nourishing caviar extract, this oil-free moisturizer boosts skin’s firmness over time and brings that lively, fresh feeling back to stressed-out skin.
