I don’t need to know the entire plot for 2021, I just need to understand if I should buy skincare and sweatpants or a purse and some shoes.

Well we are here to tell you regardless of the plot for 2021 you should invest in skincare. Here are our recommendations.

Graydon Fullmoon Serum

This skin-corrector miracle serum is a cult-favourite for good reason. Feather-light and pumped full of Vitamin C, this serum works to boost collagen creation and support a revitalized skin texture, crucial for winter-skin survival. Shop their collections here.

C E Peptide, as the name suggests is formulated with Vitamins C and E to hydrate and nourish skin, all with a very fresh and pleasant scent too! Shop the set here.

Organika Marine Collagen

organika

The old adage is so very true, beauty comes from the inside out, so it only makes perfect sense to support this theory by ingesting the best. We love the effervescent-ness of these portable tablets, each bringing 3g of premium hydrolyzed marine collagen to any water anytime you like. See more on Organika’s line here.

Toppik

Technically not skincare, but scalp care is hair care, and at a time when haircuts are a precious commodity, it’s no wonder we’re turning more and more to at-home helpers. Toppik’s line of lightly scented products go beyond mere containment and instead build up your hair fibers and create the appearance of a fuller and thicker head of hair. 9 shades make colour matching a cinch.

Softlips

The original, now dressed up for festive gift-giving. We love the restorative powers of softlips, which always leave our lips fully restored and ready for puckering. Where some lip balms require constant application to feel hydrated, softlips is richly formulated to be long-lasting, and with holly-jolly flavours like peppermint to add a layer of holiday magic. At your local drug mart on through their site here.

Lush Cup O’ Coffee

This iconic Japanese beauty brand has been around for over 145 years, sharing beauty since 1872, and has amassed a large international following. At Shiseido beauty is not an image but a feeling.
