“You can also consider using supplements like Life Botanics vitamins for skin which help you get the essential vitamins and nutrients for healthy skin if your dietary intake is not optimal.”

Think of this oil-free Clean & Clear formula as the next wave of traditional face toners. It’s made without alcohol, which can over-dry skin, and with skincare ingredients like softening glycerin and brightening lemon extract and vitamin C. “It smells amazing and keeps my skin looking bright and clear,” an Amazon reviewer said.

With a Serum
This serum was specifically formulated with 15 percent vitamin C and E to help brighten your skin and reduce the appearance of dark spots from hyperpigmentation. Plus, it’s totally a fan fav because it’s safe for all skin tones and types.
“I love CeraVe Skin Renewing Vitamin C Serum, which contains ceramides, hyaluronic acid and vitamin B5 to brighten the skin and maintain a hydrated, healthy skin barrier,” says Dr. Nussbaum. You also get your money’s worth with this serum, as it’s got a 10 percent concentration of vitamin C at a super affordable price.
With An Overnight Mask
The Laneige Water Sleeping Mask is silky smooth, hydrating, and will leave you beaming first thing in the morning.
I am not a morning person. I actually thought I was, until I met my husband, who is an actual morning person — someone who wakes up before the alarm and doesn’t immediately bury his face under the pillow and steal every last second of shut-eye before it goes off. When he’s not home, I hit snooze so many times that I’m not sure why I bothered to set an alarm in the first place.
Because of my aversion to waking up, I tend to resemble Oscar the Grouch at 7 a.m., but Laneige Water Sleeping Mask helps. It’s a delicious, bouncy gel that liquefies on contact, delivering plumping moisture to your face. I love the texture, which is like a thicker version of my favorite summer moisturizer, the Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream. It has all the hydrating goodness you crave without that greasy dipped-in-French-fry-oil feeling.
Laneige packs each blue jar with Hydro Ionized Mineral Water, a technology called Moisture Wrap that ensures the mask is performing at maximum capacity the entire time you’re asleep, and “Calming Sleepscent” — a soothing blend of orange flower, rose, and sandalwood.
In the morning after using it, my skin looks so dewy that you might mistake me for someone who hops out of bed at sunrise greeted by a team of singing birds to help me get dressed. Still on the fence? It won the Allure Best of Beauty in 2017.
Pros: Hydrating, lightweight, gentle enough for sensitive skin, leaves skin plump and dewy in the mornings
Cons: Doesn’t have exfoliating or anti-aging ingredients
With A Lip Mask
Wnek enjoys using this Neosporin lip therapy treatment because she finds that it’s the only product that restores her lips when they become chapped and inflamed. The brand itself claims that the lip therapy is clinically proven to restore healthier lips in just three days. It uses the over-the-counter active ingredient petrolatum to protect the sensitive lip skin. “I use it a few nights in a row until my lips return to their non-inflamed state,” she says.
