Smooth & Glow

Is your skin feeling a little dull or rough, in need of some resurfacing or brightening TLC? Meet your new go-to exfoliating, radiance-boosting and line-smoothing treatments.

The express refresh

GLAMGLOW YOUTHMUD® Glow Stimulating & Exfoliating Treatment Mask offers a 10-minute reboot, smoothing flaky skin with volcanic pumice rock and ousting impurities with oil-absorbing natural clay. A cross between a mask, an exfoliant and a spa-like treatment, this one-step fix was originally popularized by celebrity fans as red-carpet prep, but it suits a spa-night-at-home just as well.

The overnight success

StriVectin Advanced Hydration Lactic Acid Nightly Retexturizing Serum stars lactic acid, an alpha-hydroxy acid capable of doing double duty: it not only gently resurfaces skin, but also helps boost hydration. Expect to notice a difference in your skin’s softness, smoothness and luminosity even after just one use.

The bright light

Origins GinZing™ Into the Glow Brightening Serum will help you ace your lit-from-within skin goals. Boosted radiance? Smoother texture? Less noticeable pores? Check, check, check. Made to be used morning and night, this serum is powered with vitamin C and a 5% retexturizing complex made up of green coffee seed and an AHA and BHA blend.

The clear winner

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo (+) Global Acne Treatment keeps blemishes at bay with salicylic acid, a beta-hydroxy acid often recommended by dermatologists for its ability to exfoliate skin and keep pores clear. Both an acne treatment and a 24-hour face moisturizer, this lotion also balances your skin microbiome, tames inflammation and even helps fade the dark marks that often linger after breakouts.

The damage control

Lise Watier Sublimessence High Concentration Age-Defying Serum helps make skin more resilient and youthful with an ample dose of a homegrown hero: labrador tea extract. Cultivated in Canada’s boreal forest and responsibly harvested by hand, the plant is a mighty antioxidant capable of defending your skin against environmental aggressors and smoothing the look of wrinkles.
