Skin Care

By Betsy Aaron

And now for something completely different: a minimal amount of words about products that do the maximum so you can put your best face forward this summer. Toss these in your tote and you’re good to go for your next weekend away.

First on my list: my new favorite lip balm, In Lips We Trust, from Scientifics Organics. Not gooey, 100% natural plant oils, butters and waxes and pumped with antioxidants. It’s great on its own or as a base under a highly pigmented lipstick. I use it before bedtime and every time I take my dog out for a walk.

Mineral Sunscreen Stick SPF 40 is lightweight and portable. It provides long-lasting protection for sensitive skin and it’s packed with protective antioxidants. Great for the face but I also always use it on my paws.

What I love about Ren’s Satin Perfection BB Cream SPF 15 is not that it tones, covers and protects –but that it does all these jobs while miraculously adapting to your skin tone so that you look fab naturally. It contains bio extracts like arctic cranberry seed oil and marine glucose to boost elastin, radiance– and confidence.

Ultra Sun Protection Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Primer from Chantecaille works alone, over moisturizer as daily sun protection or under foundation as a primer. It dries to a soft, smooth finish and is water-resistant for those humid, sweaty dog days. I love how lightweight it feels on my face.

Ever think about how toxic tooth whiteners are?? Zero White is botanically based so you can clean your choppers without worry. Key ingredients include pomegranate extract and baking soda—safe enough to wear while you sleep. After about two weeks, you’ll wake up with a whiter smile.
