I have always been a strong believer in simplicity, even more these days as the world seems perplexing and chaotic.  Simplicity makes life easier and less complicated. When it comes to skincare, while it is most important to focus on what works best for your particular skin conditions, it is so nice when you can find products that do double,  triple, or even quadruple duty. 

Multi-use products can save time, space, and money. Below are a few of my favorites:


Biologique Recherche Creme Masque Vernix
This 2-in-1 product helps recondition and strengthen deficient and/or stressed epidermis. It can either be used as a mask or a cream, for those in need of intensive treatment. Thanks to its hydrating, repairing, and protecting actions, Crème Masque Vernix reduces transepidermal water loss, repairs the DNA of skin cells damaged by UV rays, and minimizes the effects of aging.



Doctor Rogers Restore Healing Balm
Not only for dry skin, this multi-purpose balm has a great texture and can be used all over the body to heal cuts and scrapes and bug bites. Its calming properties make it an ideal product for post-procedural healing. It is also great for grooming brows.





Joanna Czech Facial Massager
This travel-friendly tool can be used to massage, drain, or push products more effectively into the skin.






Tatcha Silken Pore Perfecting Sunscreen
This lightweight sunscreen and makeup primer provides broad-spectrum SPF 35 protection from UVA and UVB rays with pure, skin-loving ingredients. Silk extract leaves skin feeling silky-smooth, Japanese wild rose helps tighten the look of pores and smooths skin texture, and loquat leaf extract offers a rich source of antioxidants to protect and calm skin. 




U Beauty Resurfacing Compound
Replacing toner and serum, this singular product tightens, brightens, and improves hydration while reducing the appearance of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles.
