Sometimes a little extra TLC is in order to get the perfect pout. We’ve all experienced chapped, dry, peeling lips, and it’s certainly no walk in the park, making drinking, eating, and even smiling uncomfortable. Follow the path to lip repair while also taking preventive measures to help curtail the signs of aging with the Dermalogica Age Smart Renewal Lip Complex, $26. Formulated without artificial fragrances and colors, the ingredients are a blend of avocado oil and Shea and cocoa seed butters with a patented polypeptide to help restore tissue and minimize contour lines.
I gave the Renewal Lip Complex a whirl in a moment of dire lip need, and it felt just as soothing, healing, and overall incredible as my favorite Italian Frantoio olive oil lip salve. Plus, you won’t overdo it with this product, as just a tiny amount dispenses from the lipstick-shaped applicator. It’s sleek shape and soft metallic hue adds high design to an already exceptional product- thumbs up Dermalogica!

Shaving, sweating, irritation — it’s the cycle that your armpits go through in the summer, and as much as I love a heavy duty antiperspirant/deodorant, it can really clog pores and add to the problem. Give your pits a break from the congestion and abuse with a more gentle, natural approach. I’ve added the Dermalogica Environmental Control Deodorant, $20, into the mix, which has a wonderful unisex fragrance, is aluminum-free, and is perfect for sensitive skin. The largely natural formulation utilizes parsley seed oil to helps reduce irritation and odor (who knew?), while clove flower and hyssop extracts, and coriander fruit oil, also work to cut down funky smells. More natural ingredients such as eucalyptus leaf, lemon peel, rosemary leaf, and tea tree leaf work on keeping bacteria to a minimum.
So go ahead summer humidity, heat and sticky underground sweltering subways — -take your best shot!
