From Our Beauty Bible: New Season, New Moisturizer

    While spring is a time of flowers and pleasant humidity here in NYC, that does not mean you can or should stop hydrating. Keeping your skin fresh and healthy is a year-round duty. Although it is true that winter in the city requires us to step up our hydration game and opt for heavier creams, there are many lighter options we can use for the rest of the year. No matter what skin type you are – oily, combination or dry – our favorite beauty brands have something just for you. Every girl wants flawless skin in the season of love! Check out our top picks and choose your favorite. A girls got to have options, right?

    Aromatherapy Associates Rose Infinity Moisturizer

    Screen Shot 2016-03-31 at 10.05.57 AM

    Everyone loves a good rose scent, and for spring… that is perfection. This unique formula by Aromatherapy Associates is a magic blend of Alpine Rose Stem Cells and all-natural hydrolyzed plant proteins. The moisturizer of all moisturizers, this soothing cream repairs damaged skin at after just one use and gives it the strength it needs to resist the harsh weather (and life) changes of this fast-paced city. While Rose Infinity is an ideal choice for dry-skin ladies, it is also perfect for oily-skin gals due to one of its key ingredients: hyaluronic acid. The hot skincare ingredient of the moment, hyaluronic acid (or HA, as serious beauty junkies like to call it) washes away imperfections and helps our skin retain water, AKA stay hydrated. It’s a controversial ingredient we have to admit, but hey, it’s worked for us! So until proven wrong, we’ll just be here looking flawless if you don’t mind.

    Some cool ingredients:

    • Alpine Rose Stem Cells
    • Glycerin
    • Ximenia Americana Seed Oil
    • Safflower Oil/ Palm Oil
    • Jasmine Flower Extract
    • Rose Oil
    • Bitter Orange

    Do Not Age with Dr. Brandt Dream Night Cream

    Well, the name says it all! Since spring in NYC can at times get a bit sticky and just uncomfortably hot, it’s possible that you may not want to wear too much moisturizer (or makeup) on your face during the day. We get it, it gets sweaty and all that, but still it’s important to rehydrate your skin after a day in the sun. Dream night cream is made just for that. Apply it on your face right before you go to sleep and by the time you wake up, you’ll feel endlessly rejuvenated. This is how the magic happens: The Tahitian black pearl extract stimulates your skin’s cell turnover, getting rid of dull and dead skin cells and replacing them with healthy new ones. Of course the Shea butter and resurrection plant help preserve humidity while also plumping and smoothing your skin. Still not convinced? Check out the stats!

    Some cool ingredients:

    • Soybean Oil
    • Linseed Oil
    • Grape Seed Oil
    • Sunflower Seed Oil
    • Citric Acid
    • Castor Seed Oil
    • Lavender Oil

    Keep your beautiful faces hydrated this season ladies! Love is in the air.
