    Elizabeth Arden Prevage Body Total Transforming Anti-aging Moisturizer is powered by idebenone, the same wrinkle- and age spot–reducing antioxidant that made the Prevage face moisturizer an instant hit in 2005. To address body-specific concerns, the new potion is fortified with a tripeptide complex designed to help minimize the appearance of stretch marks and dimpling. $135; elizabetharden.com.

    Beauty Lounge’s Ji Baek usually looks to fashion for nail color inspiration, but this fall’s shades are more political and personal. Her feelings about the world climate are expressed in the khaki green No More War and the creamy burgundy Bruised, while her hopes for the future are pinned to the calming, deep Teal. Plie is the color of ballet shoes and a sweet nod to Baek’s favorite form of exercise. $18 each; rescuebeauty.com.

    Perfumer Jo Malone is no stranger to unusual fragrance pairings; in the past, she’s mixed honeysuckle with jasmine, and coffee with vetiver. Next up is Sweet Lime & Cedar Cologne, a sophisticated citrus concoction that blends the delectable smells of spearmint, coriander and tamarind with the uniquely matched title notes. $100; jomalone.com.

    Kérastase Paris’s new Specifique Bain Divalent shampoo addresses the hair equivalent of combination skin: oily at the top, dry at the ends. To get to the root of the problem, grease-tackling vitamin B6 and salicylic acid remove excess oil from the scalp, while a softening polymer smooths split ends. $39; kerastase.com.

    Wrinkled, thin-skinned hands are a telltale sign of age. A new way to disguise the truth is with ZO Skin Health’s Oraser Overnight Hand Recovery (out in November), a lotion formulated with retinol, a tried-and-true ingredient known to minimize lines. Collagen-boosting coenzyme Q10 plumps skin as you sleep. $65; zoskinhealth.com.
