Limbo. That’s what I would call the current state of temperature affairs. It’s a but chilly but not terribly cold and there are days when its almost 20 degrees and we won’t even get started on the rain that will inevitably show up and drag everyone’s mood down. This in-between weather has a special place in our skincare wardrobe and we break down the essentials for this limbo-centric transitional weather.
Let’s start with the most important step when transitioning to spring weather (though should be a staple in your year-round beauty wardrobe). Anything SPF-based will provide the much-needed coverage and protection from UV rays that your skin needs. If you’re not a huge fan of the multiple-step beauty routine, an SPF-based foundation is a great place to start. Shiseido’s new UV Protective Foundations defend skin from UV rays and dryness while providing a long lasting, natural-looking finish. Try the UV Protective Compact Foundation with SPF36 Broad Spectrum protection ($35), which has a silky texture with matte finish, or the UV Protective Stick Foundation with SPF37 Broad Spectrum protection ($35), which offers the same texture with a dewy, glowy finish.
