JUGGLING work or school while keeping up with the numerous parties lined up for the holidays can take a toll on your skin — but fret not, we’ve got you covered. Here are five products from Rustan’s The Beauty Source to keep skin healthy and prepped for the holiday festivities, whether one plans to go full-on glam or au naturel.
Creme Divine by L’Occitane
This exceptional formula from L’Occitane contains organic Immortelle essential oil from Corsica, which is rich in active molecules with anti-aging properties. With five patents combined with seven active ingredients, this anti-aging solution nourishes the skin while reducing the appearance of wrinkles, improves the skin’s elasticity and firmness and evens out skin tone. Rich without being heavy on the skin, this divine product absorbs smoothly onto the skin and leaves that smooth and supple feeling.
Double Serum by Clarins
The eighth generation formula of this product is a result of extensive research on plant extracts and their benefits. Clarins’ Double Serum has 20+1 plant extracts, including turmeric which stimulates the skin’s five vital functions: regeneration, oxygenation, nutrition, hydration and protection. Benefits include instant radiance, reduced pores and fine lines and younger-looking skin.
City Skin Age Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50 PA++++ by Murad
An often overlooked step in our daily skincare routine is sun protection, with the common misconception that sunscreen is only for trips to the beach. Aside from just being outside, prolonged exposure to light from devices such as laptops has harmful effects on our skin as well. This mineral sunscreen from Murad shields the skin from pollution, blue light from devices and infrared radiation, preventing skin damage such as premature skin aging and sunspots.
De-Puffing Eye Gel by Perricone MD
This small but potent product from Perricone MD’s Hydrogen Boost line taps H2 Energy Complex and its hydrating properties to help reduce puffiness of the eyes and hydrate the eye area. Just because you worked long hard hours at the office, that doesn’t mean it has to show, right?
Nightly Lip Treatment by Dermalogica
Fine lines around the eyes, on the forehead but what about on the lips? Yes, lips also show indicators of aging. Keep those little puckers youthful with this overnight treatment from Dermalogica. Apply before hitting the sack and let the product do its magic. This firms, hydrates, restores skin on and around the lips by improving skin elasticity and controls skin aging before it even starts.
