Refresh your skin care routine with these beauty buys.


Morihata Binchotan Facial Cleansing Mask ($50), Glasswing
Charcoal-rich masks have been big news in skincare for a while now and for good reason. Great for partied-out skin, this mask absorbs excess oil and draws impurities to the surface of the skin. Available at Glasswing, it contains no alcohol, parabens, or fragrances making it suitable for sensitive skin.


Ernest Supplies Protective Matte Moisturizer ($25), Likelihood
Dryness and redness are just some of the cold weather skin problems men face in the Northwest. At this time of year, you need a face moisturizer that protects against the elements but also hydrates and nourishes the skin. This simple but effective moisturizer gives skin the perfect balance of hydration, yet absorbs easily without a thick heavy residue.


Kari Gran Hydrating Tonic ($35)
If you like to layer, this is the product for you. It’s made up of natural ingredients that soothe dry and irritated skin. It works great as a pick-me-up during the day when skin is feeling tired but for an extra boost of hydration, add it to your regime before your serum.


Susan Grace Skincare Illumination Collagen Boost ($60)
While moisturizers protect and nourish the skin, serums take care of specific issues such as hyperpigmentation, dullness, and discoloration. Developed for Northwest skin, Susan Grace’s Illumination Collagen Boost contains hyaluronic acid which works wonders on parched and weathered skin.


Herbivore Botanicals Orchid Facial Oil ($64)
If dullness is your main concern, a facial oil is a great investment. In contrast to heavier creams and lotions, this facial oil from local brand Herbivore Botanicals, absorbs easily and doesn’t leave a greasy texture on the skin. Warm a few drops in your hands and massage in firmly. Skin is left feeling soft, plump, and refreshed.
