While many tout the ben­e­fits of its ef­fect on the gut, al­mond milk also does won­ders for the com­plex­ion. While The Body Shop’s Mediter­ranean Al­mond Milk With Oats In­stant Sooth­ing Mask sounds like some­thing you might pick up at a health food store, its ve­gan for­mu­la­tion (which oddly feels a bit like por­ridge) soothes sen­si­tive skin, re­lieves dry­ness and oh-so-gen­tly ex­fo­li­ates while keep­ing flare-ups at bay.


Rich in vi­ta­mins B and E, and a main­stay of Ja­panese skin­care, rice bran gen­tly ex­fo­li­ates and pro­motes cell turnover. Mild enough to use daily (which is why it’s the hero in­gre­di­ent of Olay’s Mi­cel­lar Wa­ter), its feather-weight tex­ture cleanses and hy­drates in one ap­pli­ca­tion.


It seems that ev­ery day an­other berry is dubbed a su­per­food, but the açai berry has man­aged to rise from fad to fix­ture. The deep-pur­ple Brazil­ian fruit is loaded with an­tiox­i­dants to coun­ter­act trou­ble­some free-rad­i­cal dam­age caused by daily ex­po­sure to the likes of UV rays and pol­lu­tion.

Olay Lu­mi­nous Mi­cel­lar Wa­ter, $13; Youth to the Peo­ple Maqui + Acai Prickly Pear Goji hy­drat­ing oil, $62.

The Body Shop Mediter­ranean Al­mond Milk With Oats In­stant Sooth­ing Mask, $35.
