I've worked in beauty PR for over 10+ years on some of the biggest brands in the hair, cosmetic, skincare and wellness spaces. While I love cosmetics, and am currently working for an awesome makeup brand, I am true and loyal skin care junkie.
I love trying new brands with beneficial skin ingredients and am most interested in products that hydrate and preventively help with aging. Not anti-aging, but pro-aging! It's all about being the best version of you, while also having glowing skin.
Here's some products I swear by and highly recommend especially as our skin becomes dry and chapped during the winter months. These are on the pricey side, but will last you 3-6 months if not more, so they are definitely worth the investment.
Joanna Vargas Daily Hydrating Cream
I've used this moisturizer religiously for the past 8 years. It's a clean formula that is super lightweight. It also hydrates skin for a youthful appearance and smells delicious. It doesnt have SPF, so I'll usually wear a tinted moisturizer with SPF on top of it.

Indie Lee Squalane Oil
Another brand I have been using for years, but this product is one that I keep coming back to. This intensive moisturizing oil contains 100% Olive-derived Squalane that leaves your skin feeling soft, nourished and best of all, never greasy.

Tatcha Violet-C Radience Mask
I LOVE this mask! It's a creamy formula packed with two types of vitamin C and AHAs from seven fruits that unveils softer, glowing skin. It helps fix dullness, uneven skin tone, dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles. It's also purple, so you'll look cute when wearing it!

Skinceuticals Hydrating B5 Gel
I should probably do an entire post about all of the SkinCeuticals products that I use because they are all pretty awesome. This gel serum is one I've been using for years. It's oil-free and replenishes moisture and restores radiance for a smoother complexion

Laneige Sleeping Lip Mask
I put this lip mask on before I got to bed everynight. It comes in a bunch of flavors, but berry is my favorite. It's great for dryness and finelines and moisturizes for smoother, more supple lips overnight.
