Monday seems more ancient than the Backstreet Boys' debut album yet the weekend is light-years away. To help you beat the mid-week blues, we’re spotlighting the beauty goods that are helping us get through the week with our skin, style, and sanity intact. Happy hump day!
Though it may seem like the plotline of a doomsday thriller starring Keanu Reeves, the polar vortex is having real-life consequences on our beauty game. Namely, our typical wash-and-go hair care routine. Rather than braving the freezing temps with wet locks or spending precious morning time blow-drying our hair, we’re turning this fast-absorbing dry shampoo to perk up our ‘dos.
Thanks to this nourishing hand cream we’re finally getting a handle (get it?!) on the recurring dryness that plagues our paws. Made with a signature blend of vitamin E, aloe vera, almond oil, and moisturizing glycerine, it provides instant relief without feeling too heavy. Plus, we love the calming scent options like jasmine and amber.
We know it’s important to eat our greens, but did you know that applying plant-based ingredients directly to your complexion can magically up your glow quotient? Case in point: This uberconcentrated serum. Made with plant stem cells, it infuses skin with healing and brightening antioxidants.
Founded by a cosmetic historian, this vintage-inspired beauty brand offers a line of vivid lipsticks that are more daring than Mae West’s sassy one-liners.
A soap-free cleanser may seem like an oxymoron, but this gel version is just that. Sans soap, it banishes dirt, makeup, and even heavy-duty sunscreen while leaving skin soft and soothed.
This year, we’ve resolved to take even better care of our skin. Helping us make sure we stay on track is this brightening and easy-to-follow skincare routine. Each product is loaded with botanicals, antioxidants, and vitamins to lift dull surface cells and even out tone.
Once the weekend finally does roll around, we’re breaking out these these exotic bath salts. Made with certified organic ingredients sourced from far-flung locales, they’re our instant passport to me-time.
