Mario Monthly Edit: December Skin Care

‘Tis the season for self-care.

Giving and gifting has been the theme since Thanksgiving—but in the midst of all the holiday insanity, we’re here to give you a gentle reminder:

Don’t forget to take care of yourself, too.

So: in the spirit of keeping things simple without forging the act of self-care, we’ve concocted an easy regimen for the whole of December. Its purpose? To keep your complexion in check no matter what life throws your way. Walk into any holiday party—and celebrate the new year—with your best face forward.

ENZYME CLEANSING GEL

Light, fresh, and dreamy on skin, this fruit-infused face wash is the perfect way to start and end every day. It’s designed to leave your complexion exceptionally clean without feeling stripped.

ALOE VERA TONER

Refresh and re-balance. This simple, soothing toner is the perfect post-cleanse boost that leaves your skin feeling calm and clean.

BOTANICAL EXFOLIATING SCRUB

Prepping before a big night out? Exfoliate to rejuvenate your skin with a fresh-faced glow—and to create a super-smooth canvas for seamless makeup application.

DRYING LOTION

This pink spot treatment should always be in your medicine cabinet—but on the off chance it’s not, add it to your skin care stash, stat. It’ll give you peace of mind knowing that you have an overnight solution for any surface blemishes that just might pop up.

BUFFERING LOTION

If you’re prone to large, under-the-skin bumps, keep Buffering Lotion within reach. Stress sometimes rears its ugly head in the form of a blemish, so be prepared, always.

OIL FREE MOISTURIZER SPF 30

Hydration and sun protection are key, even in the dead of winter. Keep your complexion balanced with a daily dose of Green Tea-infused moisture that leaves skin dewy—never greasy.

If you have parched skin, try The Moisture Magnet SPF 15 for a surge of hydration and a velvety-smooth finish.

FLOWER & TONIC MASK

All skin types need a regular deep clean—but in winter, it’s essential to balance pore-purifying benefits with something replenishing, too. This Gardenia and Evening Primrose-infused formula ensures impurities are lifted from the skin without leaving your complexion feeling dry or tight.

AZULENE CALMING MASK

Reach for this restorative mask whenever your skin is feeling angry, overworked, or winter-worn. This is a comforting formula that blends soothing botanicals and absorbent minerals to bring balance back to your complexion.
