With spring’s unpredictable climate in full swing, here are the best products for achieving that weatherproof, just-moisturized gloss

‘Tis the season for dewy skin. In between wintry dryness and summer-induced sweat, spring’s up-and-down weather is a perfect opportunity to achieve that dew-dappled, Park Avenue tulip look. Even so, that just-moisturized texture is always a balancing act; Over-moisturize, and pay the price with a breakout. Go too light, and risk flakey, tired skin.
On top of exercise, gallons of water and occasional exfoliation, there are a few key principles for nailing that lit-from-within effect. Look for products with hyaluronic acid, a moisturizing agent that carries 1,000 times its molecular weight in water; antioxidants, which boost skin clarity and prevent free-radical damage; and oils or masks promising “barrier repair” for sealing in moisture and reducing evaporation. Here are 11 products to get you closer to that golden shine-to-matte ratio.
