IT'S A COVER-UP Why hide prob­lem ar­eas when you can make them dis­ap­pear? Jane Iredale’s new Dis­ap­pear Con­cealer ($30) can not only cover up dark cir­cles and blem­ishes, but also cam­ou­flage scars, port-wine stains and even tat­toos. Packed with pig­ment, it fea­tures a patented hy­gienic gel ap­pli­ca­tor, so it can be put on with or with­out a brush. In­gre­di­ents in­clude or­ganic wil­low-bark ex­tract for an­tiox­i­dant pro­tec­tion, rose­mary leaf ex­tracts to calm and pro­tect the skin and al­gae ex­tract to help re­verse UV dam­age and sup­press melanin for­ma­tion. Which means it’s hard at work be­hind the scenes even while it’s pro­vid­ing matte, opaque cov­er­age. Got some­thing to hide? Pick up the con­cealer (avail­able in five shades) and other Jane Iredale prod­ucts at Cen­ter of At­ten­tion Day Spa in Bo­keelia (239-283-8878, cen­tero­fat­ten­tion­dayspa.net), Soft Sur­round­ings at Co­conut Point in Es­tero (239-221-6159, soft­sur­round­ings.com) and Oa­sis Sa­lon & Spa in Bonita Springs (239-992-0928, oa­sissa­lo­nandspa.biz). HIGH-PER­FOR­MANCE H20 Vichy’s new Min­eral 89 ($29.50) def­i­nitely has a cool back­story. It’s com­prised of 89 per­cent ther­mal water that’s de­rived from vol­canic ter­ri­tory in Vichy, France, and is nat­u­rally rich in 15 min­er­als. This water is a part of ev­ery Vichy prod­uct, but this is the high­est con­cen­tra­tion to date. In this new trans­par­ent, light­weight mois­tur­izer, it’s com­bined with hyaluronic acid, which helps boost the per­for­mance of the min­eral water. To­gether they pro­vide 24-hour hy­dra­tion, help skin fight signs of ag­ing caused by pol­lu­tion, stress and fa­tigue and give skin a healthy glow. Min­eral 89 is free of parabens, sil­i­cones, col­orants and fra­grances and can be used as a stand­alone mois­tur­izer or as part of a larger skin­care regime. Find it and other Vichy prod­ucts at Ulta at the Bell Tower Shops in Fort My­ers (239-334-0659, ulta.com), Co­conut Point in Es­tero (239-992-0361) and Co­ral­wood Cen­ter in Cape Coral (239-458-3522) or at area CVS, Wal­greens and Tar­get lo­ca­tions. FIND THE FIX Whether you’ve spent too much time in the sun or just want to re­duce the signs of wrin­kles and puffy eyes, Green Goo’s Skin Re­pair col­lec­tion ($9.50 to $27.95) might be able to pro­vide some re­lief. Fea­tur­ing a nu­tri­ent-rich blend of aloe vera and vi­ta­min E oils, it helps nour­ish the skin and re­duce in­flam­ma­tion. Use it as your ev­ery­day mois­tur­izer or a night eye cream, or slather it on to soothe skin af­ter get­ting too many rays. Avail­able in a va­ri­ety of sizes, you can keep a jar at home and take the travel tin or stick on the go. Head to Fresh Pro­duce in Boca Grande (941-964-0800, fresh­pro­duce­clothes.com) to give Green Goo a try.

LET IT DROP Make your man­i­cure last with But­ter Lon­don’s P.D. Quick Dry Con­di­tion­ing Drops ($18). Af­ter paint­ing your nails, wait a minute or two and then dis­pense one or two drops in the cen­ter of each nail. Let them evap­o­rate to help speed up dry­ing time and pre­vent nicks and smudges. Rose hip oil con­di­tions cuticles and gives the drops a light flo­ral scent. And the bot­tle’s travel-friendly size means you can al­ways have it on hand when­ever you’re in need of a lit­tle pol­ish.

PER­FECT­ING THE PONY­TAIL If you’ve got long hair, odds are you’ve got­ten a pony­tail holder stuck in your strands at least once or twice. It’s not fun, but you can take the pain out of pony­tails with Pretty Knotty’s Fit Ties ($12-$14). De­signed for ath­letes and other ac­tive users, the ties boast a low-pro­file de­sign that holds hair securely in place. They’re made of ma­te­ri­als that re­duce fric­tion and dam­age to your tresses, which means easy re­moval and a lot less hair pulling. The ties come in a clear, coated ver­sion or in black, pink, and gray and are sold in handy lit­tle tins. Pick some up lo­cally at the Strand Hair Stu­dio in Bonita Springs (239-301-4419, strandhs.com).

Dif­fer­ent in­gre­di­ents help tar­get spe­cific is­sues—char­coal for fight­ing acne, co­conut for mois­tur­iz­ing, cu­cum­ber to calm skin and grape­fruit to boost ra­di­ance.
