Collagen is vital to skin and hair health, and we're now firm believers that supplements can help. We prefer this powder in the berry lemon flavor, but it isn't consistently available on Amazon. (It works so well, though, that we'll take whatever we can get!)
Dermatologists and every beauty magazine will tell you wearing daily sunscreen is the number one thing you can do to protect your skin and prevent wrinkles. This tinted formula from EltaMD is a favorite of ours. The consistency of this formula is much smoother and easier to blend than other mineral sunscreens, plus it has a universal tint that prevents white streaks for all skin tones. This is a mid-range price for tinted sunscreen, but a little goes a long way.
This gentle, plant-based serum helps with collagen production by blending vitamin C, vitamin E, hyaluronic acid and other active botanicals. It's designed to target the most common signs of aging like fine lines, dark spots, brightness and firmness. Plus, you can apply it day or night, so it's safe to wear under makeup.
These clever individually wrapped towelettes infused with witch hazel are great after a long flight — or just a long day — when you want to feel clean and refreshed but can't wash your face. The towelettes are oversized, so they have plenty of cleaning power and they leave your skin soft not stripped and tight.
When rolled back and forth across the skin, high-quality, titanium micro-needles smooth bumps, wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation and more. The process allows your skin to soak up moisturizers and serums much better. Plus, it’s super easy! After washing your face, roll back and forth, using gentle pressure, four to five times in each direction. It comes with a plastic case that's perfect for sanitary storage and travel.
If you enjoy experimenting with makeup or you're new to the beauty world, then pick up an affordable brush set that's filled with all the essentials. The soft, synthetic bristles make application of foundation, eyeshadow and powder a super-smooth process.
