Siete Primavera Must-Have Beauty Products

Felicitaciones! You made it through the harsh winter that wreaked havoc on your hair and skin. It’s time to toss those heavy beauty products and welcome beauty bounty that will leave you looking -- and feeling -- radiant.

Color control cream

“A light base is essential for spring,” says María José Ovalle, blogger at Very Busy Mama. “Liquid makeup can get heavy, so look for a CC cream that feels like you’re not wearing much.”

Crème makeup: blush and eye shadow

Crème makeup for eyes and cheeks is a must for busy moms, says Ovalle. These on-the-go products are available in a stick or tube, and leave skin glowing -- a big makeup trend this spring.

Dry shampoo

“As the weather warms, this product will help freshen hair, reduce oil and give texture to finer locks,” says Ovalle. Plus, it will save time normally spent styling just-washed hair.

Try: Pantene Original Fresh Dry Shampoo

Argan oil

To keep warm-weather frizz at bay, look for products containing Moroccan argan oil, which will leave hair soft and shiny. “The oil also helps retain moisture,” says Ovalle.

Try: Pantene Pro-V Smooth Argan Serum -- which boasts 24-hour humidity control

Teeth whitener

More socialization and less hibernation make spring the perfect season to brighten la dentadura. New at-home formulas are customizable for your teeth.

Try: Crest 3D White Luxe Whitestrips -- which compares to laser treatment at a fraction of the cost!


Since spring and summer bring a more active lifestyle, look for hassle-free feminine products, which will allow you to get out there and enjoy the sunshine.
