Collagen Convert

“At the start of June, when the summer held promise of safely opening back up, my first visit to do anything beauty-related was to Rowan Hall-Farrise, a London-based master/celebrity aesthetican and international educator at QMS Medicosmetics, who was doing an opening stint at the spa at Four Seasons in Philadelphia for some serious skin transforming. “You need more topical collagen, and you need to be better at washing your face with all this tinted sunscreen,” she scolded, as she warned me that what she was about to do was anything but the norm. (Her philosophy: “This might leave you red, but it will give you results.”) A full hour later, I walked out with a full regimen of collagen-powered suggestions that included a lot more than my simple serum-SPF combo. By that night, radiant skin was revealed, as was my full dedication to pretty much anything Rowan recommends now.”

Lash Wrap

“Physician-developed and four years in the making, RevitaLash Cosmetics Lash & Brow Masque ($49) uses mascara tubing technology to wrap each hair with biotin and botanicals—think of it like a paraffin treatment for your lashes and brows. It’s a win-win for anyone who regularly uses a lash curler or waterproof makeup, which can damage delicate hairs over time, and it also delivers nutrients to sparse spots that result from aging or certain medications. I like to use it twice a week for 15 minutes—like I would a face or hair mask—and to remove it, the brush on the end acts like little squeegee so you can be super gentle.”

—Brittany Burhop Fallon, beauty director

Strand Smoother

“Going blonde can weaken your hair, but imagine dabbing on a little serum and seeing it come back to life? JVN’s Complete Instant Recovery Serum ($28), which he calls ‘the happiest stuff,’ has revived my distressed ends. With charged lemon protein and niacinamide, it supports keratin repair while boosting body and sheen. I also use it for heat protection, and to calm all the little frizzies and flyaways.”

—Tatiana Bido, features editor

Under-Eye Hero

Grande Cosmetics GrandeREVIVE Brightening Eye CreamWith Wrinkle Defense ($39) is your skin guardian, wrinkle-crusher and glow advocate. It contains an exclusive complex of the top-performing peptides and key ingredient hydrators to tackle eye concerns, and because it also protects against harmful blue light rays, I keep it on my desk and reapply it midday for an extra line of defense.”

—Sarah Eggenberger, senior editor-at-large

Sleep Support

“Sleep has been currency for me recently, so CurrentBody Skin Dr. Harris Anti-Wrinkle Mask ($125) has been a game-changer in the get-more-rest department. Putting an anti-aging spin on the traditional eye mask, it features silicone dots on its underside, which when pressed, activate touch receptors in the skin (they also keep skin in place to prevent wrinkling). After applying pressure to the relaxation point between the brows—be sure to hold for five seconds—let the mask work its magic by relaxing your muscles and mind for a furrow-free, more serene snooze.”

—Danielle Fontana Dooley, senior digital editor

Clean Machine

BeautyStat’s Universal Microbiome Barrier Balancing Cleanser ($38) emulsifies like a dream to remove makeup, balances the skin’s microbiome and prepares skin for products that follow.The common thread between these attributes is MicroSilver, a form of pure medical-grade silver with antiviral and antimicrobial properties to defend against environmental aggressors. The silver particles also remain on the skin even after the cleanser has been washed off—though you can’t see them—leaving behind an invisible forcefield to protect against barrier-disturbing dirt and germs. Not only does my skin look and feel flawless, but my makeup does, too.”

—Olivia Wohlner, editorial assistant

Hair Apparent

“Blow-dry brushes have taken the hair-care world by storm lately, but most of them either come with a flat brush for sleeker styles, or a round brush for more volume and bouncy ends. The high-tech T3 Airebrush Duo ($180) has two interchangeable brush heads that you can swap in and out depending on the look you want that day, plus multiple heat and speed settings. It gives my hair that polished finish I could once only get at the salon, and it makes life so much easier.”

—Amber Milt, director of video and multimedia
