At this point in the year, anything you can do on a daily basis to bring yourself back into your body and out of your head should deliver resounding benefits. Breathing through a short yoga flow, going for a brisk walk, taking two minutes to massage your limbs, running through an easy skin-care routine, taking a bath–all transmit the same stop-what-you’re-doing-and-take-time-for-yourself message. From magic face oil and silkifying body butter to shine-boosting hair serum, these exquisite essentials leave every inch of you glowing, pampered, and deeply replenished.



Sweep away dead skin cells

Exfoliate a few times a week and the difference in your skin–more luminous, more alive, smoother–jumps out at you. Glycolic acid and physical exfoliating minerals in Microderm gently smooth away makeup, oil, dead cells, and late nights (which truly do your skin no favors), leaving your skin instantly brighter, softer, and practically pore-less.

Flood skin with antioxidants

The antidote to dull, tired skin, the powerful antioxidant vitamin C brightens, smooths, illuminates, firms, and tones–and it works for every skin type. For most people, this daily treatment makes a noticeable change in skin in under a week, but the benefits keep going long-term, too. It’s the best way we know to wake up skin–and to protect it from environmental aggressors at the same time.

Moisturize (and moisturize some more)

Deeply hydrate your skin on a regular basis and radiance returns, wrinkles appear less noticeable, and the need for makeup lessens considerably.


Humectants, found in ingredients like aloe, hyaluronic acid, and glycerin, are molecules that attract water. With a light consistency, they sink immediately into skin, so they’re excellent for all skin types (even super oily), and they layer beautifully under more heavy-duty moisturizers as a base.

Face Oil with Bakuchiol

This gives an instant glow, beautiful moisture, and, long-term, a gorgeous antiwrinkle and brightening effect from bakuchiol, a natural retinol alternative. For some skin, it’s great on its own; for drier skin, it helps lock in moisture when layered over cream. It’s also brilliant to pat over makeup to revive midday.

This new intensely nourishing, firming hand cream leaves skin almost impossibly baby soft. The blend of jojoba, cupua?u butter, and shea smells fresh, melts in like a dream, and makes us wish we had a cute tube stashed in every single bag, glove compartment, and bedside table we encounter from here on out.
