The end of the year is just the beginning for these brand new skin care products!
If you’re not already familiar with Care by Stella McCartney launched last winter, get with it! Care is the first luxury skin care product line that uses 100% organic ingredients, which means no ingredients derived from animals or endangered plants. The collection has earned the Ecocert label, an independent organization that watches over product purity. The new Nourishing Night & Day Cream is targeted for men and women and is an ideal night cream; and for those with dehydrated skin or want a richer cream in the winter, it’s ideal for daytime. The nourishing cream, in airless packaging contains plant derived anti-oxidant ingredients that help protect skin against environment and pollution while making it feel silky smooth.

Sold separately, but a powerful duo meant to be used together, the newest in anti-aging skin care from La Prairie is Cellular Resurfacing Cream and Cellular 3-Minute Peel. Using ingredients that exfoliate, repair and moisturize the exclusive products contain fruit acid exfoliants, anti-oxidants, peptides, vitamin A and Meadowfoam seed oil. Additionally, an optical diffuser ingredient serves to blur fine lines, which is waaaay preferable to asking people to remove their glasses when speaking to you. Use the resurfacing cream daily, AM and PM. The 3-Minute Peel is a once-a-week booster that helps peel away the years as it evens out skin tone with its stronger exfoliants, anti-irritants and anti-oxidants.

I’ve never seen a company with such dedication to cleanliness! The latest in very specific cleansers from Institut Esthederm is Osmoclean Gentle Deep Pore Cleanser, just launching in New York this week. The company takes a different approach to making sure pores are really cleansed using the process of osmosis to gently lure make-up, dirt and oil out, using a patented ingredient “Cellular Water” which also balances our skin’s ecosystem and imparts freshness and energy to the skin.
