Despite the winter chill which just never, ever seems to go away, spring is officially upon us. Whether is prepping for bikini season or organizing more happy hours after work, here are some health and beauty products we recommend from https://www.groenerekenkamer.com to get ready for the warmer weather.

Essential Health and Beauty Products for Spring


Nothing is more important for spring and summer than SPF protection. While any drug store and grocery will have aisles and fixtures dedicated solely to sunscreen, we particularly love Kiss My Face products. While it is recommended to regularly use a sunscreen with at least an SPF of 15, we always sport the Face + Neck Face Factor with SPF 30 ($12.95, drugstore.com) so that you’re always protected when you feel like frolicking in the sun.

Check out the Environmental Working Group’s guide for even more sunscreen product recommendations.

Hair Repair

For all the abuse your hair goes through, from the harsh sun rays, gusts of wind, dust, to hair styling treatments and chlorine from the pool, your locks need a little bit of TLC every once in a while to repair themselves. Like a night cream for your hair, Alterna Haircare Caviar Overnight Hair Rescue ($38.00, Sephora) repairs and replenishes damaged hair while you sleep, adding smoothness and shine while preventing future breakage.

Night Creams

While it seems that your skin is less dry in the springtime, it is still important to protect and hydrate your skin every day. If you’re afraid of showing up extra shiny in the sun, nourish your skin at night while you sleep with Elemis Pro-Intense Lift Effect Night Cream ($152.00, Nordstrom). Harnessing plant stem cell technology, this rich cream is designed to target the sagging of jowls, cheeks and chin to shape, lift and firm, so facial contours appear shaped and skin texture visibly improved.

To achieve a polished, flawless look, a versatile foundation is necessary. Kevyn Aucoin‘s Sensual Skin Enhancer ($48.00, Nordstrom/Bloomingdale’s) can be used as a spot foundation, concealer, and all-over foundation highlighter. As is, it is very thick and dense, but mix just a small dab in with your regular day cream and use it as a tinted moisturizer for daily use for a soft, dewy finish.

Basking outside in comforting sunlight is one of our favorite parts of spring, and people tend to be more active spending time outdoors. Don’t forget to keep hydrated by drinkings lots of water! While water will always be our #1 (non-alcoholic) choice, quell your thirst with Neuro Drinks ($2.49, Target/Walgreens/Safeway/7-11). These low-calorie drinks contain essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. Despite being only 35 calories per bottle, the flavors pack a strong punch and taste great. Each flavor is for different stages of your day, so choose from Daily (tangerine cirtus), Sonic (blood orange passion and super fruit infusion), Bliss (summer citrus berry and white raspberry), and Sleep (mellow mango and tangerine dream).

Spring has sprung and we’re all bound to get a little frisky. Protect yourself and others while still enjoying yourself! Safe can be sexy, you can have it all with Durex‘s Pleasure Pack and Performax Intense (assorted sizes, drugstore.com). With all different sizes, shapes, flavors, textures, and other toys to choose from, being safe is no longer a hinderance for your nighttime activities.
