Skinfo Soft & Smooth Body Lotion contains a high 15 percent glycolic acid concentration, making it an ideal way to soften rough surface layers. Since this is a costlier body lotion than most, you may want to reserve it for a certain area that needs the extra exfoliating love—like elbows, knees, feet, or the back of thighs and arms.

Harvested from a tree fungus found in the Swiss Alps, luminaze is a natural enzyme that breaks down pigment-causing melanin, an effect seen in the lightening of tree bark that encounters the fungus. In a double-blind clinical study, dark spots improved by 29 percent after 31 days of use, in comparison to popular yet controversial hydroquinone’s 15 percent improvement. To apply the treatment, you pump cream from the left side and apply, and then repeat with the right side.

When a soap is triple-milled, like this pomegranate pick by Archipelago, it has been grated and pressed together three times to remove air and moisture, making for a better lather and longer-lasting soap. White tea, cranberry and chamomile add antioxidant powers, while shea butter, glycerin and mango butter replace skin-firming moisture that is lost as we age.
