This week’s Fabulous Finds is devoted to beauty products. We’re all looking for more natural products that will keep our skin looking beautiful and ageless. Check out some of these finds and let us know what you like to use.
Facial Cleanser: Zia skin Basics Fresh Cleansing Gel with Sea Algae uses plant-derived sugars and marine extracts to gently cleanse skin. ($11) www.zianatural.com
Skin Lightener: SkinCeuticals Pigment Regulator uses kojic acid, the most effective over-the-counter lightening agent and is comparable to 2%hydroquinone. The cost is a little steep ($85) but much less than doing any kind of laser resurfacing or IPL treatments. www.skinceuticals.com
Moisturizing Sunscreen: Maire Veronique Organics Moisturizing Face Screen Plus protects your skin against UVA and UVB rays with nonmicronized zinc oxide (SPF 30) and moisturizes with natural yangu and emu oils. ($45) www.mvorganics.com
Tinted Moisturizer/Sunscreen: Olay Touch of Sun UV Defense Regenerating Lotion is a 3-in-1 product – it encourages cell turnover, provides sun protection (SPF 15) and adds a hint of color. ($19) www.olay.com
Tooth Whitener on-the-go: Colgate Wisp Plus Whitening disposable brushes fit right in your purse, briefcase, gym bag, or back pack and are an essential tool for cleaning and whitening your teeth, especially after you’ve eaten something that can stain them, like coffee, tea, red wine, or other dark-hued foods. ($2) www.colgatewisp.com
Hair Oil: Keep your hair looking and feeling healthier without it looking greasy with hair oil. Your hair takes such a beating, with all of the washing, flat-ironing, coloring you do. A nourishing oil adds the necessary moisture to bring strands back to life. Try Josie Maran Argan Oil Hair Serum ($30) www.sephora.com or John Masters Organics Dry Hair Nourishment & Defrizzer ($16) www.johnmasters.com.
