Spring has officially sprung, and we’re loving light-filled longer afternoons and warming temperatures. In honor of Spring’s fresh feeling, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite skincare ingredients that not only make us want to visit our local farmers market but also celebrate glowing, healthy-looking skin. When partnered with heavy hitters like Vitamin C or Hyaluronic Acid, these natural ingredients add some powerful properties to all of your favorite products. Here’s what’s in season:
An intensely moisturizing humectant, this plant is known to soothe sunburn and stellar when it comes to aging skin and boosting cell turnover. Aloe Vera is a great multitasking skin savior, and a cleanser with Aloe Vera can help repair and restore after a day packed with environmental stressors and pollutants. Used daily, you’ll love this typically tropical ingredient.
You can find Aloe Vera in our Hyaluronic Gel Cushion Cleanser.

Pomegranate Flower Extract.
A plumping and smoothing antioxidant, the pom has enjoyed a moment in the spotlight for its superfood status. Packed with antioxidants, it helps skin regenerate, detoxes skin from free radicals which cause premature aging, and protects against harmful UV rays. Pomegranates can help smooth and firm skin, and because it can deeply penetrate the skin, it’s highly effective for dry skin and is great for all skin types in general.

Australian Kakadu Plum Extract.
We’re big fans of this ingredient, and not just because it has a fun name. Kakadu Plum enhances clarity and radiance and brightens the complexion while protecting against pollution and other environmental aggressors. Sourced from Australia and used by the Aboriginal people for its healing abilities, this potent ingredient has become a favorite of beauty editors and skincare mavens worldwide.
