THE NATURAL WONDERS
There’s a reason your beauty cabinet is likely stocked with formulations that hero clay. It’s rich in antioxidants (so long, pollution and sun damage), whisks away the build-up of dead skin cells that reduces overall glow, and it even mops up excess oil. The latest product everyone’s talking about is Innisfree’s Super Volcanic V Mousse Clay Mask, which does all of the t above when applied two times per week.
If it’s trending in the health food aisle at your local, chances are it’s showing up in your skincare haul, too. Turmeric, the golden spice heroed in Indian cultures, is antiinflammatory and its healing properties see it popping up in all manner of acne treatments. Miranda Kerr’s Kora Organics Turmeric Brightening and Exfoliating Mask works double duty by nixing congestion zones while the golden ingredient specifically gets to work on pigmentation and age spots.
Leave it to Chanel to discover a wild shrub, found only in the Southern Alps of France, that has unrivalled skin benefits. Solidago extract, the key ingredient in Chanel’s Sublimage L’Essence Fondamentale, firms the natural contours of the skin ( hello, cheekbones), almost mimicking the effects of doctor’s office treatments.
