Your Beauty Personality

Just when you’ve nailed your skincare routine, you hit your 40s and hormones, genetics, and years of sun catch up with you. If brown spots, dry patches, and lines threaten your glowing complexion, fight back with products that fit your beauty personality type.

Skin Creams for the Devotee If you tackle aging 24-7 — no tanning, no cigarettes, Jackie-O sunglasses anytime the sun shines, and impeccably clean, well-moisturized skin at the end of each day, even if it takes 10 steps to get there — you’re a beauty type A. Weekly manicures and monthly highlights (not to mention the latest It bag and hottest vacation spots) are all part of your appreciation of luxury — something you also want in your medicine cabinet. You’re among the first to embrace cutting-edge skincare ingredients, especially if they come beautifully packaged. Here’s what to indulge in now.

Above, Shiseido Night Moisture Recharge in Enriched ($40) has yuzu fruit extract to increase skin’s super-humectant hyaluronic acid.

Lancome Bright Expert Intense Brightening Spot Correcting Serum ($88) has licorice extract to diminish the appearance of brown spots.

Clarins Expertise 3P ($40) protects skin from pollution with white tea and Rhodiola rosea.

There’s a weekend-away glow plus protection from damaging rays in Jergens Natural Glow Face Daily Moisturizer SPF 20 ($7).
