Hello sunshine. Get patio polished and beach beautiful with these 12 innovative and ultra-nourishing beauty products for skin and hair.


Get Hydrated


Rodial Dragon’s Blood Hyaluronic Velvet Cream is a luxurious anecdote for dehydrated skin. This rich, velvety cream is packed with nourishing ingredients like Dragon’s Blood extract (the red sap found in the Sangre de Drago tree), vegetal squalene, hyaluronic acid and arnica. $85; available at Murale.

Nip + Fab No Needle Fix Moisturiser, supercharged with Vitamin E and other active ingredients, helps to blur fine lines and wrinkles ($25.95) and No Needle Fix Eye (19.95) targets dark circles and puffiness from those spring allergies. Available at Shopper’s Drug Mart.

As we age, the surface of the skin becomes thinner, making it more difficult to retain moisture. Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 from Skinceuticals is a super youth-booster, formulated with a maximized concentration of lipids and ceramides to help restore the skin’s barrier for a more moist and dewy look. (Tip: Consider using in combination with vitamin C in the morning and a retinol at night.) $140; available nationally at medi-spas and dermatologist offices.

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment Perfecting Wand gently buffs and nourishes the lips for an instant glow. Perfectly portable to stash in your bag for easy touch-ups, no mirror required. $29; available at Sephora.
