A True Elixir
W’s beauty director shares her winter skincare secret.
Although this elixir is packed with nearly a dozen essential oils (including rose, sea buckthorn and camellia), it isn’t goopy or heavy. Recently, I’ve been using it multiple times a day. After washing my face in the morning, I massage it into my skin, then leave the excess on the palms of my hands and pat onto my cheeks after applying my makeup. At the end of the workday, I repeat the palm press before heading out into the bitter cold—this time, more for moisture than vanity. Before bedtime, I repeat the all-over massaging process, which guarantees waking up with a very nice glow.
