Looking to up your skincare game? Shopping by concern may be the way to go to get the most targeted help and keep your skin looking its best. Here are a few common concerns and some of our favorite products to address them. –Kris G.
Dryness: The True Cream Aqua Bomb by Belif offers intense, refreshing hydration with a unique formula that “bursts” by releasing lightweight moisture that is easily absorbed into the skin when applied. Botanical actives also help visibly smooth skin and minimize pores.
Luminizing Black Mask by boscia is a supremely satisfying way to peel away dead skin and clogging impurities, leaving your pores looking minimized and your complexion more radiant. For a no-peel option, try GLAMGLOW’s SUPERMUD Clearing Treatment . This mask utilizes activated charcoal, which works like a magnet to lift away dirt and other skin congestions for a refined, healthy-looking complexion.
IT Cosmetics’ Bye Bye Redness Neutralizing Correcting Cream not only calms the redness with a cocktail of powerful soothing ingredients, but it acts as a full-coverage concealer to camouflage for a more even skin tone.
Try SEPHORA COLLECTION’s Pearl Eye Mask to brighten and even skin tone around the eye contour. This mask is made with natural white pearl and clarifying broccoli extract to balance and add radiance. For a more overall treatment, check out IT Cosmetics’ Bye Bye Under Eye Eye Cream . This cream tackles fine lines and wrinkles, puffiness, and of course dark circles. A proprietary skin-softening concentrate and shadow-minimizing tint team up to combine instant coverage with long-term results.
