Skin Saver

W’s beauty director explains why she loves January Labs Skin Essentials Restorative Mist for summer.


In this crazy heat, air conditioning helps keep things cool but sucks any moisture from my skin in the process. That’s why this mist stays next to the phone on my desk. It has aloe to soothe, bacteria-fighting witch hazel and anti-inflammatory licorice and calendula. I’m not sure what ingredient is responsible, but when I close my eyes and spray a few times, I’m transported to an outdoor shower I once had at a beach house in Quogue many moons ago.
