Spring is just around the corner… is your skin ready? My skincare routine tends to change with the seasons, I like to switch my products up depending on my skin needs. Here’s a few I have been testing out that you may want to incorporate into your own spring skincare routine.

Hydrate and energize skin with the Shiseido Essential Energy Hydrating Day Cream. This daytime moisturizer features hyaluronic acid to lock in moisture while ginseng root extract energizes and soothes skin. It’s super luxe and creamy, yet feels lightweight on the skin, absorbs quickly and does not clog pores. Plus, I love that it contains SPF 20 to help protect skin from harmful sun rays.
I find that this moisturizer is best for normal to dry or even combination skin types who are looking for a daily product that is moisturizing but won’t feel heavy on the skin. The beautiful jar is absolutely beautiful and perfect for displaying on your vanity!
I am a sucker for a good serum and have been loving the Glow Recipe Plum Plump™ Hyaluronic Acid Serum. I’ve been seeing plum being used as a super fruit ingredient in more skin products. This serum contains three types of plums– vitamin C-rich Kakadu plum, antioxidant-rich Illawarra plum, and mineral-rich Burdekin plum. It also contains a blend of hyaluronic acids to hydrate and plump skin, vegan collagen & silk protein, along with vitamin B5 to repair skin.
I love that it is lightweight, oil-free and helps to hydrate, visibly brighten and smooth my skin! Plus it smells really good!
Another serum from Glow Recipe that I am loving is the Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops, which is a beautiful serum-makeup hybrid to highlight skin. It provides a dewy glow instantly and helps to brighten skin overtime. While I normally apply serums prior to moisturizing, I actually like to use this as the last step in my skin routine to give skin a glossy glow. It looks especially great on cheeks!
I love that all Glow Recipe products are fruit-infused. These dew drops contain watermelon extract to help plump skin, along with niacinamide to target dark spots & brighten skin, hyaluronic acid and moringa seed oil to hydrate and soothe skin. If you love glowy skin, this is a MUST!
If you’ve been reading A Good Hu for awhile, you know that I experience hormonal acne and have been using Dr. Zenovia products for the last few years. Using products that slow the aging process is also a must for me. The Dr. Zenovia Skincare Peptide + Ceramide Repairing Moisturizer is formulated to target the loss of firmness and elasticity in the skin. This moisturizer contains a peptide complex that supports collagen production to help visibly tone & firm the skin.
It works especially well when paired with the Hyaluronic Acid + Peptide Serum! This serum hydrates skin while balancing skin and giving it a youthful and radiant glow. Both the serum and moisturizer contain their proprietaryREG-ulate 360 Complex™, which features a blend of resveratrol, vitamin E, green tea, bakuchiol, and genistein (a plant-derived phytoestrogen).
Sensitive Skin Must-Haves
For those with sensitive skin concerns, I recommend trying the Replenix Sensitive Collection. The Replenix Soothing Antioxidant Mist contains skin-soothing ingredients such as chamomile extract and antioxidant-rich green & white teas, along with witch hazel to tone and refine pores. It’s refreshing while providing an extra layer of hydration toning for skin.
The Redness Reducing Triple AOX Serum contains a powerful mix of antioxidants, resveratrol and caffeine work to minimize redness while targeting wrinkles and pore size. If you experience rosacea or any redness, this is the serum for you.

Facial Oil Favorite
If you are on the hunt for a fantastic plant-based facial oil, you must try the Each & Every Skin Goals Facial Oil. This moisturizing and skin-enhancing facial oil features natural-based ingredients, cold-pressed oils and is made with sustainability in mind. This oil contains a blend of jojoba oil, watermelon seed oil, bakuchiol, vitamin E, turmeric root extract, essential oils and more. It is truly an experience in a bottle! It’s lightweight, gentle and leaves skin feeling amazing. Pair with a facial massgae or gua sha techniques for #skingoals!
Ultra Spring Skincare
Kiehl’s is a leader in skincare and it’s no mystery as to why. The brand continues to offer skin products that provide results. For days (and nights) when my skin feels super dry, I like to use the Ultra Facial collection. The Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream contains squalane and glycerin to deeply hydrate and strengthen skin’s moisture barrier. My skin feels so super smooth and the dryness disappears!
For nighttime, I like applying the Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Face Mask with 10.5% Squalane. This is next level hydrating– I leave it on overnight and wake up with intensely hydrated, supple and smooth skin. In the morning my skin has the coveted glass skin effect and looks so healthy!
