Next time you’re standing in the sunscreen aisle at CVS, staring blankly into the abyss of too many options, see if they have L’Oréal Paris Advanced Suncare Quick Dry Sheer Finishing Spray. It’s an ultra-lightweight spray-on formulated with an advanced photostable patented UV filter system, powerful antioxidants and smells delicious. Available at CVS, 38 Pantigo Road, East Hampton.
Ever find yourself in dire need of a good exfoliation but without a free hour to book a facial? Luckily, you can use Hydroxatone Revitalizing Microdermabrasion right at home. The micro-scrubbers left my skin incredibly soft and smooth. Made with magnesium oxide, sesame seed oil, potent antioxidants and skin-brightening botanical extracts, Hydroxatone promotes lustrous, healthy skin. For an extra boost, try the Intensive Youth Serum, too. It’s a clear, lightweight gel that is absorbed instantly. And, it’s made with some interesting sea-stuff, like ultrasomes, which are extracts from a marine microbe that speed up the repair of UV damage. Hydroxatone products can be found at the Ulta store at Gateway Plaza in Patchogue and online at ulta.com.
