Late-night parties, an extra cocktail, and not much sleep—we get it, your skin takes a bit of a beating during the holiday season. Throw in winter allergies or chilly streets and piping-hot heating systems, and the dryness and dullness threaten your New Year’s resolution to sport an effortless-looking glow.

Don’t fret (for fear of frown lines): Our resident beauty gurus Patrick Foley and Jason Ascher are here to provide your much-needed skin detox. Read on for the beauty buys that are trending now.



Patrick Foley, Resident Makeup Artist, Beverly Hills

MILA MOURSI Revitalizing & Beautifying Body Oil

This oil is incredible— it tightens, brightens, hydrates, and firms. It makes the skin supple if it’s a little rough from skiing or dry weather, and soaks right into skin without being greasy. It’s also great on décolletage or legs.”

111SKIN Celestial Black Diamond Retinol Oil

“Black Diamond Retinol Oil is the only product you need to use at night. It’s great around the eye area, helps renew the skin, and instantly plumps. This is great if you’re tired.”

TATCHA Ageless Enriching Renewal Cream

“Morning or evening, this baseline moisturizer gives time-release hydration so it keeps working throughout the day. It works great under makeup because it’s not too strong a retinol.”


This exfoliator is pretty incredible. Rub it on dry skin then rinse it off in the shower. It’s such a good winter find.”

ORIBE Signature Moisture Masque

“The signature mask from Oribe is incredible. It gives 300-percent hydration after application, which is pretty unheard of. Leave it in for 20 minutes—some people even sleep with it in—and it gives complete hydration to hair.”

Jason Ascher, Resident Makeup Artist, Madison Avenue


“Certified natural and organic, this food-grade, rich balm-paste infused with raw honey and plant oils can be used both as a cleanser and an illuminating mask. It lifts, decongests, hydrates, and brightens dull winter skin.”


“Chantecaille’s hydrating gel blush in a perfect complexion-lifting shade of coral-pink is like a natural flush of energy.”

3LAB Anti-Aging Cream

“Rich and buttery, this smooth cream instantly imparts a moisture seal to skin without being greasy. 3Lab’s patented apple pectin stem cell technology lifts, contours, and diminishes sagging and dullness.”

HOURGLASS No. 28 Lip Treatment Oil

“A sheer, hydrating stain gives the perfect deep pink bitten-lip look for colder months.”
