Anti-aging skin care products

Natural, eco-friendly, nutri-cosmetic and anti-aging are lasting trends in skin health for the New Year. Here are some of the hot skin-care lines that can protect you from premature aging and give your skin a smooth, radiant glow.

6Evolution of Smooth (EOS) Skin Care

Evolution of Smooth (EOS) Skin Care

EOS, maker of the iconic lip balm Smooth Sphere, has a delicious range of other balms, lotions and creams, which come in unique user-friendly packaging, that will make you feel remarkably pretty from head to toe. The EOS Everyday Hand Lotion and Body Lotion lavish your skin with shea butter, oat extract and a generous dose of antioxidants, while the Ultra Moisturizing Shave Cream exudes a lovely pomegranate-cranberry fragrance and gives your skin a smooth finish thanks to aloe vera (you can shave wet or dry without the risk of razor bumps!). Our favorite: EOS Lip Balm comes in a Smooth Sphere or Smooth Stick in a tasty variety of flavors, including vanilla bean, sweet mint, pomegranate raspberry and summer fruit.

Skin by Monica

A first glance at the Skin by Monica Olsen website may seem overwhelming – there are so many skin care products! But the former model's product lines (for men, women and baby) are easily navigated and offer a wide selection of natural, chemical-free and eco-friendly skin care options. Choose from skin care essentials, body care, lip care, ingestibles, hair care and spa products. You can even get a travel kit or sample pack to try a variety of Skin by Monica skin care items. One of our favorite picks: O2 pH Balancing Spray, which neutralizes skin, allows the skin to breathe, and promotes optimal absorption of the nutrients and antioxidants in other nourishing skin care products.
