2021 anti aging awards bazaar

Over the past year or so, we’ve had some time to think. “The pandemic has brought two topics into focus: health and happiness,” says Andrew Jacono, a New York plastic surgeon. “We’ve spent more time staring at our faces in the mirror or on Zoom, and we also want to emotionally feel like our best selves.”

For many, skin care has become the vehicle to attain some of those goals. “The basic steps of cleansing, moisturizing, and protecting with SPF are essential for skin health,” says Karan Lal, a dermatologist based in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts. After that, what you want to get out of your routine is up to you. We’ve found that taking a few minutes to luxuriate with a lovely product—and making the most of the moment that you’re in—is a pretty good place to start.

Ahead, the 90 skincare, haircare, bodycare, and makeup products that have helped us emerge from the past year feeling glowy and grateful.
