How to Get Rid of Dull Skin—Just in Time for Spring!

After a long winter, it wouldn’t come as a total shock if your skin seemed a little sallow and lackluster. Whether you spent months cooped up inside or just haven’t soaked up much sunshine lately, we have the solution for you. Here are our suggestions for eliminating that dull skin just in time for spring.

Start with an Exfoliating Product

No question about it: Dull skin needs exfoliation. The problem is that dead skin cells collect on the skin, disturbing the natural appearance of a healthy visage and instead contributing to the slightly washed out look you’re trying to avoid. Unless you get rid of the cells that don’t naturally come off on their own, you won’t be able to truly enjoy that healthy glow. Try La Roche-Posay Physiological Ultra-Fine Scrub ($15.99), a gentle exfoliate that minimizes buildup without causing irritation.

Brighten Up with the Right Cleanser

Don’t make the mistake of using the wrong product when you cleanse your face. Some are so harsh that they can cause dryness, while others just aren’t effective enough to target your specific concerns. Revision Skincare Brightening Facial Wash ($28.99) is formulated to rid your skin of impurities, dirt, debris, and makeup while smoothing rough spots. The result is a more refined complexion that glows.

Treat It with a Targeted Mask

Masks are everywhere these days, of course, and it might be overwhelming to choose the perfect one if your goal is strictly to get rid of dullness. To the rescue comes Peter Thomas Roth Brightening Bubbling Mask ($34.89), a deeply nourishing treatment that provides the kinds of results you’d expect at a spa. Simply smooth it on for a near instantaneous boost. It’s filled with free radical-busting antioxidants that leave skin looking more youthful and healthier.

Don’t Forget Heavy-Duty Moisturizer

While it may seem counter-intuitive to use a heavy-duty facial moisturizer when the weather is finally warmer, it’s actually what many of us need to rescue our skin from a season of complete dullness. The reason is simple: the more moisture your skin needs, the more tired and sallow it looks. Your skin essentially appears thinner and less lively, resulting in that less-than-healthy look you’re sporting. Try PCA Skin Collagen Hydrator ($28.99), which contains soothing almond oil, shea butter, and olive fruit oil. The trio pack a punch and deliver much-needed moisture on contact, giving your skin that healthy glow you’ve been craving.

 
Add Retinol to the Mix

Another reason your skin might be looking a little less than fab lately is because your body is producing less collagen. That’s one of the unfortunately natural downsides of aging, but there are tons of fantastic collagen-boosting products out there that actually work. One we love is PCA Skin Intensive Brightening Treatment ($55.99). It’s enriched with retinol, which helps protect your existing collagen and boost the production of new collagen—in other words, your skin will look a lot healthier if you use it.

The Power of Overnight Beauty Products

Are you doing all that you can to love your skin—when it matters the most? Although it may seem that your entire body checks out when you finally fall into bed at the end of the day, the truth is that your skin is only just getting started. During the overnight hours, your skin goes into what’s commonly known as “recovery” mode, when it starts to repair and renew after a day spent exposed to the elements, dirt, debris, and makeup.

Part of that is due to the body’s increase in melatonin, which makes you feel tired and helps your skin improve its condition. It even helps minimize the damaging effects of exposure to harmful ultraviolet rays! Your human growth hormone (HGH) also goes into overdrive at night. You can thank HGH for improving your cellular turnover rate and improving your skin’s ability to heal. And finally, nighttime is the right time to give your skin the targeted treatment it needs—because those hours are when your skin is most responsive to what you use.

Want to rev up your overnight routine and reap the benefits of the midnight hour? Here’s what we love:

Dr. Brandt Do Not Age Beauty Sleep Serum ($59.99): Serums are genius products to use at any time of the day, but your skin will love using this lightweight formula when the sun sets. It contains Tahitian black pearl extract, which is designed to detoxify the skin—also known as sucking away all of those impurities that threaten to clog pores, cause breakouts, and leave your complexion looking tired. Used daily, it will also soften your skin and improve its tone.

Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu Sleeping Mask ($31.79): You’ve heard all about the benefits of ingesting superfruits, but did you know they’re pretty super for your skin, too? This indulgent mask contains camu camu berry, which is hyper-charged with vitamin C to minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. At the same time, this mask also softens skin to leave you feeling smoother and looking brighter come morning.

GLAMGLOW Dream Duo Overnight Transforming ($46.39): For those who enjoy the beauty of convenience, this product has you covered. It includes a “dream serum,” which sinks right into your skin and contains an elevated infusion of vitamins formulated to smooth and brighten a sallow complexion. “Dream seal,” meanwhile, locks in the potency of the serum with a potent combination of hyaluronic acid and mozuku green algae, which work in tandem to plump up aging skin and leave it fresher and more moisturized.

 

The Best Beauty Products Celebrities Love Under $30

While A-list celebrities tend to gravitate toward high-end makeup brands, there are actually a lot of stars out there who are hooked on inexpensive products. But don’t let the price fool you—they’re as high quality as it gets. From foundation to lipstick, we’ve found some of the most affordable makeup products in the market right now that come with a stamp of approval right from your favorite Hollywood actresses.

 Primer:

Celebrity makeup always begins with a flawless base; namely, Dr. Brandt Pores No More Luminizer Primer ($30.99). Vanessa Hudgens wore this primer to the MTV Video Music Awards back in August, showcasing seemingly perfect skin. No surprise though, as this two-in-one product gives you a glowing complexion while blurring out all of your pores like a selfie filter.

Foundation:

It’s hard to believe that Jennifer Aniston is almost 50 years old with skin that amazing, but one of her secret weapons is Youngblood Liquid Foundation ($26.99). “I like how lightweight it is and it blends well,” she told The Cut, adding that she could also build up more coverage if needed. Infused with ocean minerals, green tea extract, and more, this fragrance-free product does as much good to your skin from within as it does on the outside.

Concealer:

For touching up any spots, Gal Gadot’s makeup artist revealed to HELLO! that she loves using bareMinerals bareSkin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer ($16.99) on her. In fact, she said it’s “one of her favorite products of all time.” If it’s good enough for Wonder Woman, it’s good enough for us mortals! The silky smooth formula is guaranteed to cover up both your under eye circles and discolorations while not being heavy on the skin.

Powder:

You may know Jennifer Lopez for that signature “J. Lo Glow,” but even she turns to powder to set her makeup. Used by her and Kirsten Dunst, Glo Minerals Pressed Base ($26.99) gives the skin an all-over even finish. You can use it either as a skin-colored setting powder or as a replacement for foundation if you’re not a fan of liquid formulas.

Eyeliner:

Emma Watson is all about eco-friendly and ethical beauty products, which is why she turns to Jane Iredale Liquid Eye Liner ($15.99) in Brown. She told The Gloss that it took her six months to find a good, natural eyeliner, but that this one’s it—and we agree. The latex-free eyeliner is gentle and nourishing on the skin thanks to essential oils like rosemary leaf and radish root extracts.

Lipstick:

To finish off any makeup look, a nude lip color is essential. Youngblood Lipstick ($12.99) is a great option as it’s a super pigmented lipstick formulated with natural oils and minerals. In fact, celebrity makeup artist Monika Blunder told Glamour she applied the lipstick in Brown Sugar on Jessica Alba for a gala to accentuate the natural fullness of her lips. It also comes in 24 other colors so you can pick the perfect shade for your skin.

Which Moisturizer To Get Based On Your Skin Type

Unless a skincare professional has explicitly told you what skin type you have, it’s pretty hard to discern for yourself. Sometimes, it feels like your skin is super greasy, but then you have those days where everything seems normal. Although a few factors can come into play like the environment and your age, most skin types fall into one of five categories: oily, dry, combination, sensitive, or normal. We’ll explain each category so that you can take the trial and error out of skincare and choose the best moisturizer for your specific skin type.

Oily Skin

Indicators: Large pores, an all-over greasy sheen, and the need to use blotting sheets several times throughout the day.

Solution: Avoid heavy creams—instead, go for Avene Mattifying Fluid ($22.99), a lightweight soap-free lotion that will regulate excess oils but still keep your skin hydrated. While you might feel tempted to skip moisturizer altogether, your skin will actually become oilier if you try to dry your skin out. Fortunately, this moisturizer is water-based so it will completely absorb into your skin in just a few minutes.

Dry Skin

Indicators: Itchy, flaky, and/or red skin that feels uncomfortably tight after cleansing.

Solution: First, stop using hot water to cleanse as it strips your skin of natural oils. Stick to lukewarm water, instead. Second, quench your skin’s thirst with an ultra-hydrating moisturizer like Obagi CLENZIderm MD Therapeutic Moisturizer ($26.99). This moisturizer replenishes chapped skin with two potent ingredients: Allantoin, a plant-derived compound that heals skin by stimulating cell regeneration, and glycerin, which hydrates the skin by drawing water into your skin’s outer layer from the air.

Combination Skin

Indicators: Your cheeks are dry but you have an oily t-zone (that’s your forehead, nose, and chin).

Solution: Combination skin is probably the trickiest of all the skin types, which is why you’ll need a two-in-one product. Your best bet is PCA Skin Clearskin ($31.89) since it balances moisture levels and helps soothe acne-prone skin at the same time. You won’t have to worry about clogged pores or an oily residue thanks to the fast-absorbing formula.

Sensitive Skin

Indicators: Your face turns red with light pressure and the majority of the products you’ve put on your skin causes redness and stinging as well.

Solution: Get your skin to react positively with Dermalogica Barrier Repair ($35.99). This silicone-based moisturizer soothes sensitive skin by protecting it from free radicals and inflammation. Free of any artificial colors and fragrances, the vitamin-packed waterless formula will give your skin all the hydration it needs without any irritation.

Normal Skin

Indicators: An even skin tone with no sheen or flaking (AKA, the goal of every skincare regimen).

Solution: Celebrate! Oh, and keep up that skin by moisturizing, of course. Peter Thomas Roth Ultra Lite Oil-Free Moisturizer ($23.79) is ideal for normal skin types as it provides antioxidant protection with vitamins A and E. The lightweight gel formula also contains allantoin—which as you’ve already read—works wonders for promoting healthy skin.

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.

 

 

 

 

Get the Look: 2018 Grammys Edition

To die for? Oh, yes. This year’s Grammy Awards were more than just a celebration of music, but also a tribute to sultry, seductive beauty and adventurous, out-of-the-box looks. We tapped into the genius minds of beloved makeup artists to find out exactly how to make some of those fabulous looks yours—with a few of your favorite products from TheBeautyPlace.com.

Rita Ora

Rita Ora dazzled the red carpet with her Ralph & Russo dress. The songstress is known for her brow-raising fashion, and this year’s style was a seeming homage to sexy old-world starlets who knew exactly how to bring the drama. The stunning complement to her sexy black dress was a bold plum lip that paired bea
utifully with her flawless complexion and luminous glow. Make it your own just like this:

Go heavy on the lips. We love Glo Minerals Lipstick ($12.99) in Cabaret for its bright finish and hydrating formula. Use it to perk up your pout and give your face the awards-
worthy look you’re envisioning. Of course, dramatic eyes play well into that old Hollywood look so many of us love. Jane Iredale’s Eyeshadow Kit ($38.99) in Smoke Gets In Your Eyes contains a breathtaking combination of brightening sheers and dramatizing darks to really play things up.

Another key product that makeup artist Kathy Jeung relied on was highlighter, which helped enhance Ora’s already fabulous complexion with a lit-from-within glow. Swipe Jane Iredale In Touch Highlighter ($20.99) in Complete over cheekbones and brow bones to accent areas that the sun naturally hits. You’ll look fresh even on the longest nights! A pop of color helps boost your fresh factor, too—Jeung used a cream to warm up Ora’s face. We love Youngblood Luminous Crème Blush ($20.99) in Luxe.

 

Janelle Morae

 Taking a cue from Twiggy, makeup artist Jessica Smalls gave Janelle Monae a truly unique red carpet look. The star’s stunning floral tux alone was enough to turn heads, but it was her glowing makeup that really got the attention of beauty aficionados. Here’s how to do it yourself

Even from afar, her gleaming skin was visible. To achieve the look, Smalls steamed Monae’s skin before mixing foundation with a luminizing product and applying with a wet sponge. You can achieve a similar appearance by spritzing Glo Minerals Moist Hydration Mist ($14.99) over your makeup—this helps refresh your look and illuminate your visage. Dust Tigi Cosmetics Bronzer ($33.99) on temples and cheekbones to contour and add a sun-kissed glow.

And turquoise eye shadow? Definitely. That was the highlight of Monae’s gorgeous look, which featured a bright water line that made her entire complexion pop. You can emulate that look by applying the Flirt color from Tigi Cosmetics HD Eyeshadow Palette ($22.99) wet to line the lower lashes. Finish with minimal lips by smoothing Jane
Iredale PureGloss Lip Gloss
($22.99) in Soft Peach over your pout—its shimmery finish is instantly glamorizing

Valentine’s Day: The Dos and Don’ts of Gifting Skincare Products

When it comes to gifting your beloved on Valentine’s Day, you consider yourself something of an expert—until it comes to surprising your special someone with skincare products. Giving someone the gift of a healthier complexion is definitely a tricky proposition. But there are great ways to give your number one a skin-focused gift all in the name of showing just how much you care. Here’s what to do, what to give—and oh, yes…what not to do!

All images courtesy Glamour.com

For Dry Skin

Don’t…bore them with a bunch of rules that they need to follow, like avoiding hot showers and drinking more water. They already know, trust us.

 

Do…give them the best of the best. No one will be offended when you present them with a hyper-moisturizing product that drenches their skin with the hydration they need. Try a top-of-the-line treatment that they might not consider on their own, such as Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream ($36.59). It’s formulated to keep skin soft for up to three full days, which means it’s a miracle worker for anyone with a dehydrated complexion.

For Tired Ski

Don’t…comment on their tired eyes or pale skin. And by all means, don’t tell them to smile!

Do…be the hero that provides them with the change they need to see an improvement. When you gift them with a cult favorite that everyone loves, they’ll be thrilled. We’re partial to GLAMGLOW FlashMud Brightening Treatment ($47.93), a powerhouse mask that instant rejuvenates lackluster skin while leaving it softer. With regular use, skin appears more even and dark spots fade.

For Acne

Don’t…worry too much about giving a skin care gift to someone with acne. They know they have it—and they’ll highly appreciate something that works.

Do…try something that’s not in their usual line of vision. You won’t find iS clinical Acne Travel Kit ($98.99) at a drugstore or mass market retailer. Tucked inside a sleek travel bag, your recipient will find generous deluxe sizes of a cleanser, an SPF 50 moisturizer, and two potent serums. Used together, they’ll heal existing blemishes and help prevent new breakouts from forming.

For Sensitivity

Don’t…try to explain the gift as a solution to their “problem.” Skin care is tricky to give, but if you know the sensitive-skinned person well enough, you’ll be fine.

Do…put some thought into it. A product for sensitive skin needs to be formulated specifically with ingredients that nurture and soothe. Avoid heavy fragrances and additives that might cause irritation. Look for key words that suggest something gentle, like Glo Skin Beauty Healing Gel ($25.99). It’s an exceptional choice for anyone with skin that’s easily disturbed—and “healing” is a joy for anyone with deep sensitivity.

For Anyone

Don’t…try to figure out their skin problems and choose a random product that they may never use.

Do…focus on luxury instead. When you’re shopping for someone you don’t know quite so well or who is somewhat picky, it’s best to stick with a classy gift like the DermOrganic Skin Care Sampler ($8.89). Made with certified organic ingredients, the products are fragrance-free, cruelty-free, and infused with argan oil. Simple and skin-loving, this set contains a facial lotion, a facial cleanser, and a hand and body lotion.

 

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.
