To really reap the benefits, apply Murad's Skin Perfecting Lotion, which retails for $42, after the serum absorbs.

Philosophy When Hope Is Not Enough
After a 2017 dermatological study suggested antioxidants may benefit skin, they've been a standard ingredient in our skincare routine.

After cleansing but before moisturizing, apply 3 to 4 drops to clean hands and rub into the face and neck. The serum can be used in the morning and at night.

Slip Silk Pillowcase
A silk (or satin) pillowcase won't trap as much acne-causing grime as traditional polyester options, plus skin glides over it easily, contributing to fewer wrinkles over time. (The hypoallergenic material can also benefit your hair.) Slip's cases come in a variety of colors, including black, pink, gold, and caramel.
