Struggling from hat hair as a result of the cold wet weather or no time to hit the salon? Use a dry shampoo to bring hair back to life with an extra boost. We recommend: Pssst! Instant Dry Shampoo ($5), the original dry shampoo, to absorb hair's excess oil and moisture for a polished and clean finish.  This drug store find is the hairstylist's secret to skipping shampooing for longer-lasting style. Shake can vigorously & hold 6" to 8" from hair.  Lift sections of hair & lightly spray scalp & roots.  Shake can between sprays for best results.  Wait for a few minutes, then brush & style as desired. 

The fast pace atmosphere, stress, makeup, and hair products have left an ungodly blemish on your face. Now what?  Use a spot treatment with salicylic acid to reduce inflammation. We recommend: Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action Vanishing Treatment Gel ($9). Formulated with the breakthrough Acceladerm technology, this gel treatment gets to work instantly. When you are fighting acne, faster is better. Clearasil Ultra Rapid Acne Vanishing Treatment Cream is dermatologist-tested to visibly reduce redness and pimple size in as little as four hours. 

Nail trends are just as much a part of fashion week as the clothes; so don't let a chip ruin your manicure. Use a topcoat that tries quickly and is easy to apply. We recommend: FingerPaints Top Coat ($5) which provides a high gloss finish, with a new professional brush for flawless one coat coverage. The professional formula also contains sunscreen to help nail color vibrancy last even longer!

No one wants to shake a dry cracking hand. Keep hands and skin moisturized with a moisturizer or dry oil that is filled with ingredients to rejuvenate skin. We recommend: c. Booth Honey and Almond Bath & Body Indulgence Kit ($10). The kit includes c. Booth Honey Almond Nourishing Dry Oil Mist, c. Booth Honey Almond Body Butter, and c. Booth Honey Almond Nourishing Bath & Body Wash) Each product is filled with honey to rejuvenate and refresh depleted skin with natural antioxidants and anti-microbial properties, as well as Sweet Almond Oil to provide intense skin hydration.
