If your skin has been breaking out more than usual, look to Paula’s Choice for quick clearing and brightening solutions. The Allure-editor favorite Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant taps two percent salicylic acid to help purge pores of excess oil, dead skin, and acne-causing bacteria.
Sunday Riley’s Good Genes Lactic Acid Treatment, which can be used as a serum or a mask, is another solid choice. “Each and every time I use this product, my skin looks crazy radiant and stays that way all day, and it’s all thanks to the hero ingredient, lactic acid,” says Jihan Forbes, Allure‘s digital editor.
The Lumiere Riche Extra Moisturizing Illuminating Eye Cream from Neocutis is especially ideal for those who experience eye puffiness or dark circles. It’s made with stimulating caffeine and antioxidant-rich wild yam extract to help with both.
For a long-lasting, ultra-versatile facial moisturizer that’ll keep skin hydrated no matter what the season may be, look no further than the EltaMD AM Therapy Facial Moisturizer. It’s packed with brightening vitamin C to promote a radiant complexion, niacinamide to improve skin texture, and plumping hyaluronic acid.
If you haven’t already, now’s a great time to dive into skin-care devices while prices are significantly slashed. The Allure Best of Beauty-winning Facial Toning Kit from NuFace will be a cool 25 percent off during the sale. It utilizes microcurrent technology to “tone” facial muscles, (temporarily) firm skin, and naturally sculpt areas that tend to sag as we age.
Hair Care & Styling Tools
Because we’ve basically all become our own hairstylists this year, we suggest using this opportunity to level up on your tools and hair-care products. If it’s serious nourishment that your hair is craving, Briogeo’s Deep Conditioning Mask will get the job done. Not only is it another award winner, but it’s also made with antioxidants and a blend of argan, avocado, and sweet almond oils to deep-condition dry and damaged hair. Moisture-boosters, like aloe and rosehip oil, and strengthening biotin also leave hair shiny, smooth, and, most importantly, healthy.
The joy that is Harry Josh Pro Tools will be on sale and completely worth treat yourself to. The entire collection, including the beloved Harry Josh Ultra-Light Pro Dryer, which weighs under one pound, will be 30 percent off. The easy-to-use, adjustable dryer is designed to reduce drying time.
