What it is: Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta Daily Glow Moisture, $42What it does: Hydrates and plumps skin, fights aging, and creates glow so subtle, you’d never know it was laced with DHA (the ingredient in self-tanner).Why it works: If you’re starting to notice your skin lacks the resillience and pep it had in your glory days, take it as a sign that it’s time to take a serious look at what’s in your skincare. This oil-free moisturizer boasts an anti-aging A-team of glycolic acid, lactic acid and soy protein (they exfoliate, rev up cell renewal and recharge collagen, respectively). On defense, it has antioxidants—vitamins A, C and E—plus vitamin B (to reduce the appearance of pore size) and active vitamin D to keep the formula going. Finally, it contains encapsulated DHA, which imparts a time-released self-tanning formula that starts to appear within one to three hours of application.Why you care: According to the Melanoma Research Alliance, one American dies every hour from skin cancer. If you’re one of those people who think they look better with a little color, this moisturizer is a safe, smart alternative to frying your skin in the sun for even a minute.
