THE DISCOVERY EDIT

Every beauty journey should be as individual as the seeker. After all, there is no standard measure to hold ourselves to. That said, much of what many of us want (especially at the start of the new year) is a reset to how we feel overall, inside and out.

Plump, glowy and radiant skin that looks and feels hydrated is a common desire among a range of skin types and ages and a well-rounded regimen of products that exfoliate and moisturize are a solid step toward achieving the plumped-up skin that’s less cherubic and more like the rewarding results of a delicious night’s sleep. Not to mention, these products infuse the face with an effective dose of vitamin C and E, skin plumping oils like avocado and jojoba and hardworking properties including hyaluronic and kojic acids.
