Spring Awakening: 5 Ways to Emerge from Hibernation

Winter is going, going, gone—and frankly, it can’t happen soon enough. As we emerge from our caves and prepare to step blinking into the spring sunlight, we’re arming ourselves with these energizing products to help us tackle the warmer weather head-on.

Caffeinate Your Complexion

Gone is the time to endlessly hit snooze and burrow deeper into your mountain of blankets. Now that we have an extra hour of daylight on our hands, you’d better believe we’re squeezing the most out of every minute. Get your eyes on the same page with 100% Pure Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream. Infused with circulation-boosting caffeine, the formula makes bleary eyes look (and feel) wide-awake. Now get thee to a rooftop happy hour!

Crank Up the Color

Nothing puts us in the mood for a fancy-free frolic in the park like a bright pop of color. To brighten up our cheeks, we’re turning to theBalm® cosmetics How ‘Bout Them Apples? cream palette. Bonus: each of these six red, pink, and coral shades doubles as a lip stain.

Prepare to Bare Some Skin

While a full-blown spray tan would feel premature at this point (though we wouldn’t blame you for jumping the gun), we can still create a healthy glow with Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream. Slather this formula onto arms and legs, and the light-reflecting pigments will trick people into thinking that you didn’t just spend the last four months dressed as a human sleeping bag. Bring your face up to speed with the ORIGINS Smarty Plants™ CC SPF 20 Skin Complexion Corrector, which evens out skin tone while protecting against pollution and UV rays.

Get Your Nose In the Game

‘Tis the season when we can shed those bulky layers and run around town unencumbered. And what better way to celebrate than with a T-shirt inspired scent? An ode to your coziest style staple, CLEAN Cotton T-Shirt smells crisp, warm, and refreshing—kinda like spring in general. For a burst of fresh fruits, spritz DKNY Be Delicious Skin Hydrating Eau de Toilette Spray. Not only does the airy, green apple scent feel just right for the season, but it hydrates skin on contact.

Give Yourself a Head Rush

“Spring cleaning” applies to showertime as well as your closet. Stimulate multiple senses at once with Keims’ Cleanshine Energizing Shampoo. Infused with cooling peppermint, this fortifying cleanser boosts circulation in the scalp, promoting healthier hair growth. Plus, the tingly peppermint infusion gives us an instant up-and-at-‘em feeling. Truth be told, it’s the only cooling sensation we’re willing to face for a very long time.
