The Monthly Edit: December Skincare Essentials

Welcome to #MarioMonthlyEdit, where you (yes, you) get a sneak peek at our current essentials. If you missed our last installment, check it out here.

december skincare essentials monthly edit

‘Tis the season. Where there are chestnuts roasting by an open fire and last minute gift shopping, there’s dry, stressed out skin…which is where our December skincare edit comes into play. The secret to a glowing complexion—yes, even in the dead of winter—is in the products you pick. Nourish and protect your skin from harsh winter weather and intense heating systems, and you’ll look effortlessly dewy at every holiday party.

Here’s what’s in our medicine cabinet this month:

Orange Cleansing Soap. This is a creamy, AHA-infused face wash that delivers mild exfoliation without leaving skin feeling dry or tight.

Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion. Let this be your twice-daily, post-cleanse go-to. This revitalizing, alcohol-free toner helps perk up dull skin, soften the look of fine lines, and even out skin tone. Plus, it features Aloe and Linden to deliver soothing hydration so your skin is left feeling rejuvenated.

Honey Moisturizer. It features—you guessed it!—Honey to deliver radiance-boosting moisture that lasts. Plus, it’s formulated with antioxidant-rich oils to further soften and smooth, leaving skin looking dewy all day long. If it’s particularly cold out or you’re feeling drier than usual…

Orange Protective Cream. …use this protective day cream instead. Though lightweight in texture, our Orange Protective Cream is specifically designed to help eliminate dryness and banish dullness. Nutrient-rich Beeswax helps safeguard skin from harsh elements (like cold, wind, and indoor heating) as Orange Extract rejuvenates skin to reveal a healthy, radiant complexion.

Olive Eye Cream. This is our most moisture-intensive formula, perfect for very dry under-eyes or for use as an overnight treatment. It’s ultra-rich and super concentrated—which makes for luxurious application every time. If your skin is on the oily side, you’ll still need to up the ante in the under-eye hydration department; swap out your fall eye cream for the Hyaluronic Eye Cream.

Rose Hips Nourishing Oil. We love Rose Hip; here’s why. So much so that we keep on in the office, in our medicine cabinet, and in our bag to help smooth dry patches and revive dehydrated skin.

Special Hand Cream with Vitamin E. Dry, chapped hands are the worst—which is why we decided to repackage our signature hand cream in a travel-friendly tube you can take anywhere on the go. (And at $8 a tube, it makes for the perfect stocking stuffer for everyone!)

What’s In Your Skin Care? Rose Hip

Rose Hip Skin Care Benefits

What Is Rose Hip?

Rose Hip Oil and Rose Hips Extract, both derived from the Rosa canina plant, are renowned for their high Linoleic Acid and antioxidant Vitamin C content. Rose Hip is known to deliver moisture-intensive hydration, help diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles, encourage the fading of minor discoloration (and dark spots), and help smooth the look of dry, flaky skin.

Who Would Benefit Most From Rose Hip?

Combination-Dry, Dry, and mature skin would benefit most from incorporating Rose Hip-infused skin care products. Our aestheticians highly recommend layering our Rose Hips Nourishing Oil under or over moisturizer to help smooth dry patches and revive dehydrated skin. Further boost radiance in dull, tired skin by incorporating the Rose Hips Mask into your regimen twice a week: It’s infused with Lemongrass, Rose Hips Extract, and Rose Hip Oil to brighten skin and diminish the look of fine lines, wrinkles, and minor discoloration.
