I love the holiday season. I love how work slows down and family and friend time picks up. How everything is more festive – from the music in stores, to women in holiday sweaters and antlers on cars and holiday lights. The glow is everywhere and here are a few beauty finds to get that glow on your face too. (See what I did there?)
The name says it all: Natura Bisse’s Diamond Instant Glow is the jam. $88 gets you four treatments which are perfect before an event, dinner or just to get your glow on. Step 1 is the Peel based on their awesome glycolic acid and alpha-hydroxy acid complex. Step 2 is Radiance with the Ceratonia siliqua extract along with other ingredients that emulsify on the skin. Step 3 lifts with their Phyto-Lift Complex and high molecular weight collagen. I promise you will notice a difference on the first use. Available at Neiman Marcus and Façade, 1700 Post Oak Blvd.
If you aren’t using Vitamin C in the morning, your skin is missing out and so are you! SkinCeuticals has a few options; I go for the C E Ferulic. The daytime serum delivers advanced environmental protection and improves the appearance of lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness and the glow comes in its brightening. I use it daily under my oil and sunscreen and notice a drastic difference (read dullness) when I stop using it. $165
Erno Laszlo White Marble Dual-Phase Vitamin C peel is a two-step easy facial. It’s great for sensitive skin. Step 1 is the peel which gently exfoliates, hydrates and illuminates as you gently massage onto the skin for about three minutes. Step 2 is the activator which is mixed into hands and applied atop the peel for one minute. Rinse and remove with warm water. $100
Just like everything, winter has its pros and cons. One is lackluster skin thanks to the chill in the air. I can’t get by without body oil and I allow myself the luxury of Clarins Tonic Body Treatment as a treat. Not only does it glide on and moisturize, but it’s made with 100% pure plant extracts including rosemary, geranium and mint, which together smell divine and help me disconnect. The combo helps firm, tone, improve elasticity and reduce stretch marks, while hazelnut oil softens, smooths and hydrates. $64
