From amazing anti-agers to sublime shower products, Savoir Flair rounds up the five best new beauty products to meet all your pampering needs.
Rituals has created just that – the ultimate beach beauty ritual. The new ‘Ritual of Karma’ collection boasts the floral-sweet scent of holy lotus and features face protectors, milky body sprays, and even a luxurious SPF 30 body oil. They not only protect against harmful UVA and UVB rays, but are also loaded with body-boosting ingredients like organic white tea, vitamin E, and ginkgo biloba to nourish and soften. It doesn’t hurt that these sun saviors are pretty to look at; they’ll look perfect on your Insta-feed when snapped against the sand.
Murad’s amazing new anti-aging serum is the ultimate way to help turn back time. Packed full of powerful natural ingredients (including swertia flower extract from the Himalayas that aids cell regeneration), it uses Retinol Tri-Active Technology to visibly minimize the appearance of lines and deep wrinkles – so much so that 93 percent of testers saw a visible reduction of aging signs in just two weeks!
“Retinol is well-known as the gold standard anti-aging ingredient; that’s why my patients ask for it frequently,” explains Dr. Howard Murad. “However, I saw a significant need for a new product that worked more quickly and didn’t cause irritation and dryness. After years of research and development, I’m proud to say we have finally perfected the science of retinol with this revolutionary serum.”
