Jan10Musts Intro

As we head into the second full week of the New Year, chances are, your much-anticipated resolutions are running out of steam. Focus is fading, those last post-holiday pounds are still hanging around and your appearances at the gym are becoming more and more spaced apart. But, fear not—there’s still time to get back on track with your skin-care goals for 2015 with these must-try January debuts.

1 / 9
GET YOUR VITAMINS
With the line’s proprietary alguronic acid, nourishing microalgae oil and a potent vitamin C derivative, Algenist GENIUS Ultimate Anti-Aging Vitamin C+ Serum combines this anti-aging trio for the first time to take on the big signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, discoloration and lack of radiance. $115, sephora.com

TRY A LITTLE DIY
Has Pinterest prompted you to be a bit more productive in the DIY department for 2015? Even if you aren’t that handy with homemade beauty products, the Silk + Honey Anti-Ageing Hand Cream Kit will boost you to pro-level status. This incredibly luxurious step-by-step kit (there’s also a Body Cream, Shea Butter Hair Mask and Natural Lip Gloss option to choose from) contains all the ingredients, directions and containers you need to actually make something you would want to use (you can even pick the final texture and scent). An added bonus: It’s all-natural and chemical-free. $39, silkandhoney.co.uk

REDO YOUR RETINOL ROUTINE
Yes, you really should be using retinol—and with VERSO’s 07 Super Facial Oil, there’s really no reason not to. In what the company claims is the only facial oil with concentrated vitamin A on the market, the hydrating blend (it’s even good for sensitive skin types that typically get red after using retinol) gives your complexion that glowing luminosity on contact, while it treats it to powerful wrinkle-fighting benefits that only this “gold standard” ingredient in aging can deliver.

UP YOUR MAKEUP GAME
So, technically this contender falls more on the makeup side, but with all the skin-benefiting powers Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Perfectly Satin 24HR Makeup Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 15 provides, it’s too good not to include. This long-wear (seriously, it won’t budge) liquid foundation is perfect for those who experience mid-day oil slicks or anyone who likes a matte look, but still wants a lightweight, silky foundation. It’s also a pretty serious contender in the free radical–fighting department, as it includes vitamin E and provides SPF protection. $39, elizabetharden.com

DON’T SKIP THE EXFOLIATION
In a uniquely rich gel-cleanser formulation that makes it extra-easy to exfoliate without overdoing it (the secret is the gentle mix of jojoba esters and willow bark that make up the mircobeads), Jurlique Clarifying Deep Cleansing Gel cleanses skin and clears sebum to leave your face looking fresh, not flushed. It also smells so good, you won’t want to skip washing your face—no matter how tired you are before bedtime. $28, jurlique.com

STOP IGNORING YOUR HANDS
Sunscreen on your hands: You know you should be doing it, so stop the delay! With a whole slew of anti-aging ingredients like brighteners and antioxidants, plus the ever-needed sunscreen, jane iredale HandDrink Hand Cream makes it a supereasy step in your skin-care routine. Available January 19, janeiredale.com

HYDRATE (and MAYBE EVEN HELP SOMEONE)
With a beyond-yummy scent (think a tropical mix of coconut fused with fresh pear) that Farmhouse Fresh always seems to feature without skipping a beat, Rainbow Road Shea Butter for Body soothes dry skin with a supple blend of shea and cocoa butter, jojoba seed, aloe and vitamins A and E. Sure, your skin will benefit from the hydration surge, but CEO Shannon McLinden says the real reason she made the uplifting fragrance was to serve as a gift you could give to someone who needs a little bit of encouragement. $30, farmfreshgoods.com

TAKE CARE OF YOUR COLLAGEN
With not only a New Year–debut, but a stateside one as well, ČUVGET Collagen Boosting Serum promises to amp up collagen levels in your skin with its proprietary salmon roe from the Nordic arctic. The company claims that the Scandinavian superstar has the proven ability to not only boost collagen and elastin fibers, but also to treat pigmentation, increase skin hydration and fight off free radicals. $185, cuvget.com
9 / 9
REMEMBER YOUR OMEGAS
Omegas, healthy oils, good fats. The recipe for eating a bit healthier is also making a splash in Goldfaden MD Fleuressence. The non-greasy oil promises to plump up skin as it delivers a ton of vitamins, flavonoids and fatty acids. It’s also perfect for those who have previously shunned the oil trend for fear of clogging their pores or acne popping up, as it features rosehip oil, which purportedly regenerates the skin and can even help with scarring. $125, goldfadenmd.com
