The New Skin Innovators
Energy Enhancing Moisturizer
Think of this as a lively citrus fragrance with a day job-the La Prairie Cellular Energizing Body Spray($130; shoplaprairie.com) doubles as a vitamin E-infused moisturizer that reduces redness with the help of blue algae extract.
Blue Light Zit Zapper
May the force be with you!-The Tria Clarifying Blue Light ($245; triabeauty.com) is a blemish-fighting light saber that heals existing breakouts while fighting off new ones. The science is in the gentle blue light, which activates the oxygen beneath the skin's surface to remove acne-causing bacteria.
One-Step Skin Brightener
While many products promise results with continued use, Estee Lauder's Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator ($62; esteelauder.com) clears ruddiness after the first application thanks to Estee Lauder's signature color correcting and brightening optics.
Natural Sunless Tanner
It's the most natural glow you can get without being in the sun. The Josie Maran Argan Self Tanning Cream ($32; josiemarancosmetics.com) gives skin a sun-kissed appearance with organic ingredients like argan oil, and DHA derived from sugar beets and sugar cane.
Facial in a Jar
The name may be a tongue-twister, but the results are plain as day: firmer, younger-looking skin. The Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm ($105; omorovicza.com) is thicker than the average cleansing cream, but dissolves into a mineral-rich oil that draws out impurities.
Magic Clay Mask
Fight clogged pores while you chill out-literally. The KeSARI Pore Minimizing Indian Clay Masque ($30; kesaribeauty.com) imparts a cooling sensation on skin, and with the help of Indian clay and saffron, easily whisks dirt away with a splash of water.
Purifying Charcoal Strips
The pore strips you loved at teenage slumber parties are all grown up, and are sporting a little black dress to prove it. Infused with charcoal, witch hazel and peony root, the Boscia Pore Purifying Black Strips ($15 for six; sephora.com) absorb excess oil and reduce the formation of blackheads.
Never know how much sunscreen is enough? Take the guesswork out of your SPF with the Beauty Rx SPF 30 Essential Solar Defense Pads ($40; beautyrx.com), pre-saturated discs with a quick-drying formula that won't break you out.
Celluite Clearing Serum
With the added ingredients of caffeine, creatine, and Lady's Thistle extract, the Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Sculpting and Firming Body Serum ($50; donnakaran.com) reduces the appearance of cellulite to make way for silky skin. If only cashmere sweaters delivered results this luxurious...
Ultimate Anti-Aging Duo
Like Yin and Yang, these two potent serums work together to give your complexion a perfect balance. The Diorsnow White Reveal Day Essence ($130; sephora.com) targets the environmental aggressors that cause skin spots, while the D-NA Control Reverse Night Essence ($145; sephora.com) neutralizes and reverses the skin's melanin production while you sleep.
Three in One Body Lotion
Who says sunscreen can't have sparkle? The shimmering mica minerals in Hawaiian Tropic's Shimmer Effect Lotion ($10; drugstore.com) gives skin a toned appearance with beach-bod-enhancing shimmer, while moisturizing and protecting from the sun's rays.
