Newsflash: Not all beauty editors have perfect skin. You can trust me when I tell you I actually have problematic skin. Some people brush this off to me being dramatic or exaggeratory, but really, I have a pretty serious case of cystic acne and some serious skills when it comes to covering it all up (even my derm was fooled when I walked in for acne treatment). I’ve tried everything under the sun, and I mean everything, from spot treatments, to 3-step systems, even kitchen remedies—you name it, I’ve tried it. Topically, nothing has really worked that well for me until I started using BeautyRx Skincare by Dr. Schultz. I’ve only been using the products for two weeks and am already seeing a major improvement. My blemishes are cleared (and no new ones are threatening to pop up), my pores are smaller and my complexion has a new-found glow thanks to the Daily Exfoliating Serum ($65, beautyrx.com). It’s an 8% glycolic exfoliant that helps unclog pores and brighten dull looking skin. I apply three drops all over my face before bed and wake up to a fresher and clearer complexion (and one step closer to finally having my dream skin).
We’ve been suffering from major spring allergies here in New York City and our undereye area has taken a beating from the incessant itching and dryness. Our salvation in a tube is Estée Lauder Idealist Cooling Eye Illuminator— the brightening cream/concealer hybrid is dispensed through a ceramic applicator that feels cool on contact, so it relieves itchy eye pain as it hydrates crepey skin, soothes irritation, minimizes puffiness with caffeine, and light diffusers make the eye area look refreshed. The slim, lightweight tube is easy to tote anywhere, so we blend it over makeup whenever we have the urge to rub our eyes or they’re looking particularly parched.
