It finally seems safe to say that spring is here and winter has shed its last flake. It’s time to shed those layers of clothing, and get your hair and skin back into shape to be showcased.

If, like many, your skin and hair are beaten, dry and chapped from winter, don’t lose hope. With a little tender loving care, your skin and hair will come bursting back to life, just like the beautiful perennials that blossom each spring.

Inside are 10 products I’ve tried, tested and recommend to rejuvenate your hair and skin.

1. Loreal Paris Revitalift Moisture Blur, Walmart, $19.97.

Why I love it: This moisturizer really does what it says it does — blurs pores, wrinkles and laughlines while leaving your skin so smooth, you’ll be tempted to use it all over. Mix it with your favorite BB cream (tinted beauty balm), or use it as a moisturizer under foundation. (It also takes years off the backs of your hands!)

2.Fekkai PRx Mending Elixir, www.fekkai.com, $25.

Why I love it: This decadent oil smells as wonderful as it feels in your hair. Crafted with argan oil, this elixer works miracles on dry ends and flyaway hair. It smooths and perfects long hair, mending delicate color-treated hair and leaving it with a healthy sheen. The elegant bottle features a dropper that dispenses the perfect amount of product.

3. MitoQ Power Antioxidant Rejuvenation, www.mitoQ.com, $119.

Why I love it: This quick-absorbing face lotion is infused with CoQ10, which, according to the website, is a co-enzyme, a functional molecule present in every cell in the body and one of nature’s perfect antioxidants. After a few weeks of use, you’ll notice your skin is smoother, sun damage is less noticeable, and fine lines are reduced. It’s refreshing, unscented and comes in a modern, easy-to-use pump. MitoQ is pricey, but it’s a splurge your skin will drink up.

4. Dolce by Dolce & Gabbana, 2.5 ounce eau de Parfum spray, Macy’s, $112.

Why I love it: This scent is a perfect choice for spring, with its mix of florals counterbalanced by warm musky notes, accentuated with light woodsy and earthy tones. The bright fragrance is a statement of both elegant and exotic femininity, represented by the rare species of white amarylis found in the Fynbos region of South Africa. The exquisite bottle is reminiscent of a vintage fragrance flacon.

5. Jane Iredale Dot the I makeup remover swabs, Jon Ric Medical Spa, 1129 E 33rd St., Edmond, $11 to $12.
