The Beauty Tools You Need In Your Life (and How to Use Them)

Where would be without beauty tools? Of course we need our various powders and potions, but without the right equipment it would be pretty challenging to accomplish some of our favorite looks. Whether it’s applying foundation more precisely, smoothing out your skin more effectively, or graduating to a tweezing pro, you’ll need a few of these top-tier tools to make it happen. Here are our favorites of the moment.

Jade Roller Beauty Pro, $42.99

Did you ever imagine that you’d end up rolling your way to amazing skin? The beauty world has essentially fallen head over heels for the incredible jade roller, a sleek, double-ended tool featuring jade stones on each end. Their popularity is due to a number of facts: they’re extremely portable and easy to use, they may help boost drainage and strengthen facial muscles, and they simply feel amazing against the skin. If you’re in the mood for a little extra summertime treat, pop yours into the fridge and roll it over your complexion for a brilliant massage.

Tweezerman Wide Grip Slant Tweezers, $15.99

Get a grip—on a great pair of tweezers that’s destined to change your beauty routine for good. This sleek pair is designed by one of the best in the industry, and it features an intricate design with a wide grip that makes it easy to hold on while you pluck away at those pesky strays. The slant design is ideal even if you’re a tweezing newbie—it’s just that simple to grab at each single hair and pull out without pinching your skin. A stainless steel construction ensures it will last a lifetime.

Glo Minerals LUXE Foundation Brush, $26.99

If you typically apply foundation manually, you’ll wonder what took you so long after you get your hands on this brush. Featuring a thick handle, a flat top, and feathery soft bristles that pick up just the right amount of product, the brush is designed to apply your makeup precisely and blend it to perfection. Blending is the key—buff, buff, and buff some more until you achieve that glam, magazine cover-worthy appearance that you love.

BioSwiss 5 Piece Pedicure Set, $7.95

You may not be getting those weekly pedicures you swore you’d get at the beginning of summer, but you can definitely do your part to keep them looking fabulous all season long with this kit. It contains all of the essentials to achieve a salon-like look at home: nail clippers, a nail file, a nail brush, a pumice stone, and toe separators. All you need is an eye-popping color to complete your look!

These are the travel-size beauty products you *have* to pack for a trip away

When it comes to packing your holiday beauty essentials, no matter how many times you write a checklist, you always forget something. Having all your favourites in under 100ml for the plane, and remembering what you’ll need while you’re there, can be a bit of a headache. So, to lighten your load, we’ve worked out the fail-safe travel-sized beauty product must-haves that’ll ensure you feel summertime fine from take off to touch down…

The Skin Kit

Wish you could travel with a facialist on hand for your best-ever skin on holiday? It’s now one step closer, thanks to The Ultimate Renew Beauty Kit, £65, devised by the the beauty experts at NET-A-PORTER. With a selection of 12 skin cleansers, oils, peels, serums and eye brighteners, from cult brands such as Sunday Riley, Omorovicza, Lancer and Dr Dennis Gross to name just a few – it covers every skincare base for glowy holiday skin. And best of all it’s cleverly packed into a transparent pack so there’s no decanting or squishing into a clear plastic bag. We’re all up for treating ourself to first class beauty, even if we do turn right on the plane.

       Try these:

iS Clinical Brightening Travel Kit

● Image Skincare Ageless Travel/Trial Kit

Peter Thomas Roth Cult Classics Kit

The Plane

Ear plugs, tooth kit, eye mask: Yes, some airlines offer them, but surprisingly some don’t and it’s a bleeding nightmare if you’re stuck next to someone who insists on keeping their reading light and you want a kip. Better to be safe than sorry.

Try these:

Supersmile Whitening Toothpaste 4.2 oz

Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle 24k Gold Sheet Mask

Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Hydra-Gel Eye Patches

SiO Eye & Smile Lift – 4 pads

Nasal spray, painkillers: The single best travelling trick I know is to use a chemist-bought nasal spray such as Vicks First Defence (£6) when flying. Using it when you first get on the plane will significantly reduce the threat of developing bugs from inhaling the air conditioning. If, though, you tend to get a headache from the air-con, bring painkillers. It’s a killer not to have them.

Moisturiser, pillow spray and muscle cream: Hydration will literally be sucked from your skin whilst on a flight so take a thick and nourishing cream such as Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Cream (£70) to lather on when your face feels a little dry. Admittedly, pillow spray is an added luxury but, a little lavender mist (Susanne Kaufmann pillow spray (£18) can really help to relax you during the flight and don’t forget the muscle cream. It’s not something many people think of but if you wake up with a stiff neck, it’ll be your saving grace. We love This Works In Transit Muscle Therapy (£18) – it really does tingle the right spots.

Facewash and deodorant: When you get the “breakfast wake-up” having been hunched in the same position for seven hours, there really is no better word than “rough” for how you’re probably feeling. The best quick-fix is a good facewash, a slick of deodorant (we love Aesop’s(£23)) and a scrub of the old nashers. Take Kiehl’s travel-sized Ultra Facial Wash (£7.50) for the best kind of in-flight wake-up. Its gel formula lathers the skin in a creamy foam, leaving it moisturised and refreshed.

Try these:

Dermalogica PreCleanse Wipes – 20 Count

PCA Skin Total Wash Face & Body Cleanser 1 oz

The hotel

Yes, the hotel will provide the shampoo, conditioner and shower-gel frills but there really are some key items missing on their stock order…

Sun cream: If you take only one item on holiday, let it be this. There is nothing more important when it comes to health and beauty than taking care in the sun and we highly recommend using no lower SPF than factor 30. You need to bring a body sun cream and a face SPF.

Try these:

Jane Iredale Powder-Me SPF 30 Dry Sunscreen 0.62 oz

NIA24 Sun Damage 100% Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 2.5 oz

Skinmedica Essential Defense Mineral Shield SPF 35 1.85 oz

After sun, body lotion, body oil: It may seem excessive to pack all three moisturising products, but if your suitcase allows, do it. Use the after sun straight after the beach. For evenings, choose a lovely scented, deeply moisturising butter and use an oil on your legs. You can reapply just before you go to bed to allow your body to absorb the maximum moisture it can overnight. This will help to prolong your tan and keep your skin nice and plump.

Try these:

Bliss Grapefruit + Aloe Body Butter 6.7 oz

John Masters Organics Blood Orange & Vanilla Body Milk 8 oz

Avene Body Oil 6.76 oz

Face mask: For many people, a holiday is a chance to go au-natural, allow the skin to breathe and avoid having to wear make-up for a couple of weeks, which we totally get. But, whether you fall into this camp or still maintain your normal beauty regime, the extra time you have whilst away is a great opportunity to pamper yourself and a face mask is the way to do so. Face masks such as SK-II’s legendary Facial Treatment Masks (£86 for a pack of 10) will help to restore moisture alongside your normal night cream and rejuvenate the skin after sun exposure.

Try these:

bareMinerals Dirty Detox Skin Glowing and Refining Mud Mask 2.04 oz

Bliss Multi Faceted Mask

Straightners or curlers and salt spray: Just because the hotel will have the hair cleaning products and a hairdryer, it doesn’t have the finishing touches to take your hair from day to night. Bring a set of stylers and a product such as a salt spray to get the ultimate beach waves, tousled look. We love Bosch’s mini straighteners-come-curlers (£23.99), perfect for squeezing in a suitcase and Davines’ Sea Mist (£15) for voluminous texture.

Try these:

Bio Ionic OnePass Iron 1.5″

TIGI Session Series Salt Spray 9.13oz

Make-up essentials

Concealer, tinted moisturiser, highlighter: Skin tends to clear up and look a whole lot healthier after being a little sun-kissed so leave all your thicker foundations and cover-ups at home. Take a concealer to use if your bags won’t budge and those dark spots and fine lines keep clinging. We love Hourglass’ Hidden Corrective Concealer (£23) for instant improvement. When it comes to a tinted moisturiser, select a shade one darker than what you normally wear if you tan. The best we have found is Estee Lauder’s Sheer Tint Release (£38), which adapts to your skintone, whatever it is. Lastly, the power of a good highlighter to enhance your holiday glow shouldn’t be underestimated. Try Nars’ Illuminator (£23) on your cheekbones, cupid’s arrow, brow bones and temples.

Try these:

bareMinerals bareSkin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer

bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream

Eyebrow products: Don’t forget to fill those brows in, the sun will naturally make your hairs lighter. Benefit’s Brow Zings (£24.50) is a winner with its powder and wax options.

Try these:

Glo Minerals Brow Collection

Mascara: Take a waterproof mascara such as Clinique’s High Impact(£17.50). That way, you’ll look fresh in the water as well as out. Don’t underestimate the power of humidity and sweat to smudge your look even if you are on dry land.

Try these:

Glo Minerals Brow Collection

Tigi Cosmetics Eyes Love It Mascara

Lipstick: Yes, you’ve been told to always keep a red lippy on you at all times, but it’s for a reason. It’s the quickest, easiest, most effective way to glam up your look and is the symbol of classic beauty. You can’t go wrong with Mac’s Ruby Woo (£15.50). With its blue neon undertone, it’s got a really fun edge, which translates well to a holiday vibe. Also make sure to pack a nude lipstick so you can achieve different looks on alternate nights without having to bring a trunk full of colours. We recommend Tom Ford’s Sable Smoke (£37) for a sparkly, sheeny finish.

How to Get the Kardashian Glow for the Summer

From reality tv stars to beauty moguls, the Kardashians are known for their ultra glam makeup looks. Aside from their signature lashes, you’ll always find them sporting a highlight that looks like they’ve been bathed in a halo of light. Well, we’ve done our research and found the few key products you’ll need to create a fresh, luminous glow that would even impress the highlight and contour queen herself, Kim Kardashian West.

First things first, you’ll need to prep the skin with an ultra-hydrating moisturizer. Peter Thomas Roth’s Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream ($35.99) helps lock in moisture since it’s formulated with 30 percent hyaluronic acid, which keeps skin supple and plump for 72 hours. You can choose to wear a primer on top or skip it completely like Kim does.

When it comes to foundation, use one that gives a radiant finish like Glo Skin Beauty’s Luminous Liquid Foundation ($47.99). This lightweight mineral foundation is infused with both diamond powder and green tea extract to make it look like you’re glowing from within. Apply some of the foundation on your neck as well so there’s no harsh line. Dab the product into the skin with a KKW-approved BeautyBlender ($15.99) sponge that’s been dampened for the most flawless streak-free finish.

Complete the base by applying Jane Iredale’s Active Light Under Eye Concealer ($24.99) under your eyes, on the bridge of your nose and the cupid’s bow to brighten up your face. The concealer also works as a highlighter so it creates a soft-focused effect that will amp up the glow.

Lightly dust Karin Herzog’s Egyptian Earth Finishing Powder ($35.99) over the t-zone to set the base. The powder evens and illuminates the skin, providing it with a long-lasting radiant finish. Now time to bake in true Kardashian fashion with BareMinerals Barepro Contour Face Shaping Trio ($30.99). Apply the lightest color in the areas you want to be highlighted—so under the eyes and on the middle of the nose, chin, and forehead. Let it sit on your face for a few minutes, then dust it off. Use the medium color to bronze the skin and the darkest color to contour.

Once you’re done, bring some color back into your face with
Jane Iredale’s In Touch Cream Blush ($17.99). Use your fingers to apply the product onto your cheek and then blend it in with the BeautyBlender. The creamy formula blends effortlessly into your skin—not to mention it also smells like chocolate.

 
Then glide BareMinerals Highlighter Stick ($18.99) on the highest part of your cheekbones. This oil-free highlighter is infused with Mineral Moonbeam Essence that mimics how light reflects off crystals, which gives your cheeks an ethereal, multidimensional look. Feel free to also dab some on your cupid’s bow and tip of the nose if you love the shine. To make your eyes look bigger and brighter, apply Jane Iredale’s Eye Highlighter Pencil ($11.99) along the inner corner, waterline, and brow bone. And voilà, you’re ready to keep up with the Kardashians all summer long.

The Best Foundations for Every Skin Type

You don’t have to be a makeup maven to know that some products are better suited to your skin than others. In fact, you don’t need even an ounce of beauty know-how to recognize that what works for one may not work for you—and that’s good news, because at TheBeautyPlace.com, we carry a foundation for every type of skin, no matter your allegiance to beauty. Whether you’re just looking for a quick and effortless cover-up or want something that’s complex enough to bolster your skin care routine, you’ll find it here. Here, our suggestions.

For Normal Skin

Blessed with amazing skin that barely needs a drop of makeup? You’re oh so lucky—but that doesn’t mean you can’t take advantage of some of the amazing products out there. We love Glo Skin Beauty Luminous Liquid Foundation ($55.99) because it simply amplifies your complexion and adds a little extra radiance. Who wouldn’t benefit from that?

For Dry Skin

Dealing with dehydrated skin is a common springtime woe that usually comes after months of exposure to dry, cold air. You can minimize the discomfort by packing on the moisturizing products, such as Glo Minerals LUXE Liquid Foundation ($39.99). This light, mineral-based formula won’t sink into dry areas, instead
smoothing gently on to reveal a bright complexion that appears healthy and radiant in any light.

For Sensitive Skin

Skin that is sensitive, damaged, irritated, or otherwise compromised may benefit from a potent product that works overtime to provide high-octane coverage. We’re big fans of Dermablend Smooth Liquid Camo Foundation ($25.99), which is available in several colors. The medium-coverage product helps minimize the look of scars, dark marks, redness, and other imperfections, while toning down sensitivity and allowing skin to breathe.

For Oily Skin

It’s important to stick with lightweight formulas if you have oily skin. TIGI Cosmetics Whipped Foundation ($18.99) is an oil-free product enriched with nourishing vitamins and antioxidants to protect skin. The light coverage ensures that your skin won’t be weighed down with unnecessary product, yet you’ll still get the benefits of a high-performance foundation that covers any imperfections you want to hide.

 

Five Easy Ways to Retouch Your Makeup

Four hours into work, you head to the bathroom. As you look at yourself in the mirror, you’re baffled at how faded your makeup looks already. That “waterproof” eyeliner miraculously smudged and your forehead looks like an oil slick. Sounds familiar? Don’t let all that time and effort you put into your makeup in the morning go to waste. By following these few tips, you’ll save your makeup—and trick people into thinking you just applied it even though you’ve had it on for a solid 10 hours.

1. Take off that first layer of oil

Before even touching makeup, the most important thing to do is to remove excess oil on top of the skin. If you don’t and try to just powder your face, your makeup will actually mix in with the oil, creating a cakey mess. Using blotting sheets like Glo Minerals Blotting Papers ($7.99) will instantly absorb sebum without causing your foundation to look blotchy. Focus primarily on the T-zone, pressing gently to get rid of any oil.

2. Lose the remaining shine

Instead of turning to powder to mattify, use liquid! Sounds counterproductive, but there’s a new innovative liquid product that works so much better at mattifying your skin: Murad MatteEffect Blotting Perfector ($36.99). This on-the-go compact was developed by a dermatologist and contains a unique translucent formula that effectively gets rid of the shine while visibly minimizing pores. Feel secure knowing that for up to eight hours you’ll be shine-free wherever you go!

3. Spritz hydration spray on top

Now that you got rid of the bad shine, time for the good kind of shine. Get a youthful glow by spraying Jane Iredale Lemongrass Love Hydration Spray ($27.99) all over your face. Not only does the organic spray control oil production, but also it hydrates and conditions the skin. The lemongrass awakens your senses in the process, helping you relax and decompress from the day. Getting your skin to look like it’s radiating from within has never been easier.

4. Clean up any makeup smudges

As the day goes on, your makeup naturally tends to smear a little, even if all you do is sit at a computer. Keeping BioSwiss Paper Stick Cotton Swabs ($2.99) on hand will help you clean up any imperfections without disrupting the rest of your makeup. Just grab a swab and gently wipe away any lipstick or eyeliner smudges. The inner corner of your eyes can also collect gunk so check for that, too.

 

5. Reapply makeup and soften lines

The last step to reviving your makeup look is to touch up any makeup that might have faded away. Some of the most common areas include the lips, eyes, and any blemishes that may have popped up from underneath your concealer. With the BeautyBlender Micro.Mini ($15.99), you can quickly patch up of any of those spots. Simply apply a tiny dot of concealer on the area, pat it in with a clean finger, and smooth with a dampened Micro.Mini. For a finishing touch, use the sponge to blot any harsh lines in your makeup like your smile lines.

 

 

 

 

Why You Need Some Acid in Your Life

Your skin care routine may be on point, but you can elevate it even more by adding acid to the mix. Although you might worry about the possibility of irritation, the newest breed of acid-based skin products are designed to treat your skin without causing discomfort. Here’s what you need to know—and what to try.

It Combats Aging

 If your goal is to stave off the early signs of aging, it’s important to get a head start with a product that is specifically designed to target those fine lines and wrinkles. Look for something injected with hyaluronic acid, a potent ingredient that rebalances your body’s collagen levels as those naturally decline with age. The acid helps boost your ability to synthesize collagen and moisturizes your skin at the same time. It’s a double whammy that spells serious success for tired looking, aging skin.

Karin Herzog E&R Anti-Aging Corrector Serum ($89.99) not only looks gorgeous in its gold-encased bottle, but also provides your skin with a hyper-concentrated infusion of hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, and vitamin B3. A touch of chamomile soothes while the concoction penetrates deeply to reveal smoother skin and a more youthful appearance.

It Brightens Skin

A sallow complexion is easy to revive with some makeup, but if you want to get to the root of the matter you need to focus on your skin care products. Glycolic acid is a natural exfoliating agent that sloughs away dead skin cells on the surface layer of your skin. The result is fresh, healthy, vibrant skin that also appears to youthfully glow, thanks to the acid’s ability to stimulate the production of both collagen and elastin.

And since you likely hydrate your skin every day anyway, it’s worth switching to Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta Daily Glow Moisture ($42), a deeply moisturizing lotion that contains both glycolic and lactic acids. The combination works to improve the cell renewal process while smoothing rough spots. It also contains vitamin D and microencapsulated DHA, which lend your skin a golden glow over time.

It Heals Damage

Glycolic acid does more than just exfoliate—it also has the potential to heal skin abnormalities without causing irritation. The key is in its size. Glycolic is the smallest possible type of hydroxy acid, which means it’s easy to add to virtually all types of skin care formulations. As it penetrates the skin’s outermost layer, it works to eliminate issues such as dryness, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars.

If you’re concerned about the prevalence of these issues, a product like Glo Therapeutics 10% Glycolic Cleanser ($40.99) works wonders. In addition to the acid, it also has anti-inflammatory aloe vera, soothing Canadian willowherb extract, and green tea leaf extract, a potent antioxidant that combats the harmful effects of free radicals

Beauty Sleep 101: Products to Help You Snooze Better

New year, new you! If you’ve vowed to get more sleep this year, you aren’t alone—and you probably need all the help that you can get, too. At TheBeautyPlace.com, we believe that improving sleep is one of the best enhancements you can make to your beauty routine. You’ll feel better, your skin will look better, and you’ll be far more motivated to handle everything life throws your way. Here are some tips for getting the beauty sleep of your life—plus a few of our favorite products to help you get there.

First things first: the technology has got to go. While they’re some of our world’s greatest advancements, those tables and smartphones just don’t belong in bed with you. Our suggestion? Pick up an actual book and make a commitment to read a chapter or two each night. It will give you something to anticipate, and it’s much more likely to lull you off into dreamland. Studies show, in fact, that looking at a bright screen for longer than an hour can make you more alert, precisely at a time when you should be ready to wind down for the day.

Soothe your senses by massaging an aromatic moisturizer into your skin. Gently manipulating your skin is an easy way to relax your mind and body, while a soft scent calms your nerves. Try John Masters Organics Blood Orange and Vanilla Body Milk ($16.99)—the light vanilla is warm, while the citrus notes add some radiance to the milky notes.

Your skin does the majority of its work overnight, so if another resolution is to achieve a clearer complexion you may want to invest in a nourishing treatment like Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu Sleeping Mask ($40.99). It’s infused with smoothing collagen, brightening vitamin C, and illuminating camu berries, all of which work together to reveal more brilliant skin by morning.

Lighting a candle while you sleep isn’t a good idea, but a NEST Fragrances Reed Diffuser ($41.99) will fill your bedroom with a potent fragrance that will easily relax frayed nerves and soothe your senses. The Vanilla Orchid and Almond scent is a particularly good choice for overnight, when warm nutty notes combine with coconut milk, vanilla, and amber to help you get a great night’s sleep.

Sometimes it’s hard to sleep no matter what you do. In many cases, the best solution is to create a blackout so that your eyes don’t have to deal with any niggling light. The London Bath & Beauty Printed Sleep Mask ($3.99) is a cute and economical solution that slips on easily. It’s made from soft satin and feels perfect against the skin.

The Art of Gorgeous Hands

Winter equates to dry skin for many of us, which means it’s more important than ever to take care of those cracked knuckles before the problem becomes worse. Here’s how to make sure your hands stay gorgeous and soft even in single-digit temps.

First things first…you need to moisturize. It’s fairly easy to get into this habit as temperatures drop because your hands severely suffer if you don’t. Dry air has a tendency to really wreak havoc on the skin, and if left alone your hands will start to feel dehydrated and itchy. They may even start to crack or peel. Avoid that whole scenario by investing in a high-quality product like Avene Cold Cream Concentrated Hand Cream ($10.99), a rich moisturizer that sinks right in without leaving skin greasy or oily. It works continuously even after you wash your hands, and is designed to stand up to even the most brutally cold weather. Now that’s a superstar.

In addition to your hands, you might notice that your fingernails tend to dry out in the cold, too. Lack of moisture in the air aggravates the problem if your nails are already brittle, but even people with normally smooth nails may notice a change if they don’t show them some TLC during winter. Buffing Tweezerman’s Dual Nail Brush ($6.89) over nails helps slough away those dry bits and reveals cleaner, smoother nails. And thanks to the ergonomic handle and oval shape, it’s easy to use and never gets tiresome.

Sometimes rough skin needs a little extra attention. A nourishing body scrub infused with natural sugars is a great way to slough away dead skin and reveal the fresh, new skin underneath. We love John Masters Organics Raspberry and Orange Body Scrub ($16.99), which gently eliminates dry spots while infusing skin with hydrating and healing oils that both brighten the skin (a must when your hands start to look a little dull in the winter) and leave them softer for longer.

After scrubbing, use a gentle hand soap that isn’t loaded with harsh detergents—those are a surefire way to dry out your skin even more. Check out NEST Fragrances Grapefruit Liquid Soap ($20.99), a light and nourishing product that leaves hands soft and smooth. It also infuses delicate hand skin with healing antioxidants that combat the harsh effects of nature’s free radicals, which can contribute to the early signs of aging. The scent is perfectly bright and uplifting for the season, too!

If your hands are in truly dire condition, you’ll need to kick your hand care game up a notch. A pair of Bliss Glamour Gloves ($32.99) works overtime to deliver intensive moisture to your hands. They’re made with grapeseed and ceramide gel, which deliver instant hydration. Although you can wear them for the recommended 20 minutes, you’ll reap greater rewards if you leave them on for longer—maybe while binge watching your favorite TV show or even while taking a nap. They’re perfect for maintaining your skin during the winter.

What to Do When Your Skin Freaks Out

We’ve all been there. One day your skin is completely fine, and the next morning it looks like something out of a horror movie. Whether it’s an unfortunate allergic reaction to something mysterious, a surprise breakout on your chin, or some ruddiness that doesn’t seem to want to budge, there’s no easy way around the fact that your skin is simply freaking out. The good news is that we have some solutions for your serious skin woes. Here’s what to do when…

 

Your Lips Are Chapped  

You try your best to handle your lip game. And usually it’s pretty easy to keep them moist, but during the colder months of the year your skin—including your lips—has a mind of its own. To the rescue comes Glo Skin Beauty Lip Revival ($25.99). This high-impact treatment is formulated to drench lips with moisture and improve moisture levels so that your lips stay softer for longer. Use it at night to obtain lasting results.

Your Acne Scars Are In Effect

Acne scars don’t just develop overnight, but if you’ve just recovered from a serious breakout there’s a good chance you’re dealing with some lingering pigmentation issues. Bid farewell to that dark spot by applying SkinCeuticals Phyto+ ($78.99), a highly effective lightening gel enriched with natural ingredients designed to gently lighten skin in the areas that need it most. It’s free of hydroquinone, too, which means it’s great even for the most sensitive skin types.

Your Dryness Is Unstoppable

Winter has a habit of wreaking havoc on the skin, and it often seems like no matter how much you treat it you can’t quite stay on top of all of the dryness. The Revision Skincare Hydrating Serum ($55.99) makes an amazing addition to any dry-skin routine. Don’t be fooled by its lightweight consistency; it’s loaded with moisturizing ingredients that flood your skin with hydration and give it a plump, healthy finish. Use it before bed to combat dryness and signs of premature aging.

 

Your Skin Is Bright Red

There’s nothing like waking up, refreshed from a great night’s sleep, only to discover that your complexion resembles Rudolph’s nose. While it’s tempting to just slather on several layers of makeup and go about your day, that won’t exactly solve the problem in the long run. Treat your ruddiness with La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 ($11.99). It’s formulated to gently heal even the most sensitive skins, even those recovering from procedures or suffering from dermatitis, eczema, or psoriasis.

Your Acne Is Out of Control

Stubborn acne is an annoying skin woe that can often seem insurmountable. Peter Thomas Roth Acne-Clear Invisible Dots ($21.99) are infused with salicylic acid and tea tree oil and are designed to target only the skin that’s affected. This helps reduce the telltale dryness that many acne medications cause, while effectively treating even the most difficult blemishes. Wear them throughout the night, or during the day if you don’t plan to leave the house.
