Fresh Beauty Exfoliant
Annie Lawless' Skin Care Cocktail

"In the winter, my skin gets pretty dehydrated, and I am extra vigilant about exfoliating so my makeup doesn’t cling to any dead skin or dry patches. I have been absolutely obsessed with the Fresh Umbrian Clay Mattifying Face Exfoliant because it’s gentle, but not too gentle! It really removes dead skin while drawing out impurities and keeping my skin clear. After that, I love toning with the Herbivore Botanicals Jasmine Green Tea Balancing Toner because it contains witch hazel and white willow bark to prevent breakouts, and aloe vera to soothe any dry or inflamed areas. It also smells amazing! Then, I finish with Tatcha Deep Brightening Serum and Crème Riche Velvet Moisturizing Cream."

Drunk Elephant Face Oil
Renee Chao's Skin Care Cocktail

"My 2 favorite winter skin-savers are Drunk Elephant’s Virgin Marula Luxury Face Oil because my skin needs oil and this one is the most light-weight, easily absorbed, yet really moisturizing. The other is Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask for my chronically dry, peeling lips. This transforms my lips overnight and feels and smells delicious."

Aveeno Moisturizer
Katie Willcox's Skin Care Cocktail
"When people ask me about my skin care routine, I try to be as honest as possible. I am lucky and have really balanced skin so for me, less is more! I keep it super simple and use Neutrogena Makeup Remover Wipes. When I am in a humid climate I steer clear of adding more products to my skin. But in dry climates I love to add Aveeno Positively Radiant Moisturizer to hydrate my skin."

"My favorite moisturizer is the Ultra Repair Cream by First Aid Beauty. I love it because it’s has intense hydration, which is extremely important for me having dry skin and eczema. To pair, I use the GinZing Eye Cream from Origins to brighten and depuff my eyes. It’s a great morning pick-me-up too since it contains coffee beans!"
